Tuesday on April 8th, the Updater will benefit from some improvements! Find out all the details in this dedicated news...

This update of the Updater will be automatically done on April 8th and will be compatible with all operating systems: therefore you do not have to do anything!

At the end of the update, you will see the following changes:
  • Updates in the background: the Updater will check every 5 minutes if there is an update to be performed and if this is the case, it will install it automatically. You can configure this feature in the Updater options.
  • The Updater will be able to send notifications. We currently use this feature to warn you of a new game update. This notification system will use:
    • The Integrated Windows system
    • libnotify for Linux,
    • The integrated system with Mac OSX, Growl or OSX notification center depending on your OSX version.
  • Better integration of the Updater to the notification area.
  • Mode "turtle": this option listed in the menu of the system tray, will allow the updater to use less system resources (CPU, bandwidth, etc.). In return, the update will be slower.
  • During an update, its progression may be accessed directly in the tooltip of the notification area.
  • In case of crash, an special message will appear and a button will allow you to immediately restart the Updater.

  • New diagnostic tool: the Updater will collect some useful information about the configuration of your machine, including your OpenGL and Direct X versions. This will allow a better exchange of information between our support team and you in case of issues. You will simply be able to use the F3 shortcut to display it on your screen.
  • If your graphics driver is outdated, the Updater will warn you at launch.
  • Overall performance improvements to play WAKFU.
In addition to these improvements, stability will be improved and many bugs will be fixed.

We will get back to you on Tuesday to inform you of the exact time of implementation. Do not hesitate to share with us your feedback and questions!

Will we get a compensation for all the server down time we have experienced in the past two weeks? Speaking of bugs and bombardment of updates [which i appreciate none the less, that being said I will just state that I also don't appreciate the dungeon bug which didn't allow me to log my alts for almost a week]

This includes an alamax compensation. I am saying this because clearly although it is for the good of the game, this means more server down time.

I'd really expect and hope for compensation. Losing two weeks literally due to instability of game servers is a bit disappointing, especially when I enjoy this game. Too bad support tickets are still slower then ever, waited 11 days so far and not even been glanced at..

We need a compensation.
Look at me,i have lost a tofu and some set items on my sidekicks, and you guys didn't nothing.

Better, just give our items back! What 'bout that? Great idea huh?

Aw, and yes, we have instability on game servers.

Missing equips, instability, no answers.

Wow smile

I'm lucky I did not lose any pets, but I did lose items on pets. My pets still have their dyes, but a few are missing accessories like the tofu eggshell, bow meow collars, and the scarafly hats. It upsets me having paid for them (some with ogrines and some with kamas), I feel like I am being stolen from and it's a little upsetting seeing my pets naked. Will we get these items back? I understand pets would be a top priority and gear that went missing from multimen, but I would hope that we get some sort of compensation for missing cosmetic items for pets. : (

As long as it's not all in french as what usually happens, I'm okay with this...

Checking every 5 minutes for an update is quite excessive.
Asthis 08 April 2014 05:55
Yeah I'm gonna turn that every 5 minute thing off.

I really hope that we don't have a fiasco of the updater and its options being in French for some reason...

Also, that every five minute thing is stupid, guys... you folks don't even update that much, why in the hell would there be an update every five minutes? Why is this even an option that exists? So shutting that off.....

Sorry for the french screenshots. There are some in English on dofus side

Regarding the 'checking every 5 minutes' things, it's not because we do a lot of updates, but because we want the update to be detected and installed quickly after its release/announce so you don't have to wait too long.

Checking for update is a really fast process, you don't have to worry about performances, we made sure that feature didn't slow things down. I know a lot of applications tend to be bloated, and clutter you computer, but, it's not the case here smile
Also, it's an opt-in feature, it won't be activated by default.
