WarGup is a Windows Service
that will lie dormant and only wake up as often as you'd like to check if there's a new
patch available for World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and World of Warships.
It requires ~1.5 MiB memory to run and uses neither processing power nor network
bandwidth until it's time to check for a new patch - and even then it's not noticeable.
When a new patch is available, a popup window will appear to notify you about it and
the download will start in the background. You can continue working with your computer as normal.
If you abort the download by shutting down your computer or stopping the WarGup service, the
downloading process will continue from where it stopped the next time the computer or the WarGup
service is started.
You don't have to be logged on for WarGup to work - the only
requirement is that the computer is turned on.
When the patch is fully downloaded, you'll see another popup window notifying
you about that and the patching of the game will start in the background.
This may take some time depending on the size of the patch, but that's what WarGup is for.
When the patching is done, you will get a "go ahead and play" notification.
and unpack it in any folder of your choosing. If you have a folder for all your
games, that's a good place for WarGup too. Unpacking WarGup.zip will create the
folder WarGup in which you will find these files:
Start WarGconf.exe and then select the game you'd like to configure. Then click Setup ....
The game configuration form will open in which you select the game
installation directory by clicking the ellipsis button (...) and
then browse to your game folder and click OK.
You will now see some of the current settings for your game, such as the
version of the game, the game launcher and the game content. You'll also see
some URL:s to game patches. If your game isn't updated - one or more of these
will be downloaded once the service has been installed.
When that is done, set how often you'd like WarGup to check for new patches for this particular game. The default is to check once every 120 minutes (2 hours).
When you are happy with your settings, click OK
You will now return to the main form of the WarGup configurator where you now can click Save to save this configuration - or configure another game. When you've configured all the games you'd like WarGup to keep updated, click Save and then Install.
That's all - WarGup will now keep your configured games updated while you do other important things. You can now close the configurator and forget about it until WarGaming releases a new game.
Start WarGconf.exe and then click Uninstall. The service will be stopped and uninstalled.
First, uninstall the service (see Service uninstallation above),
then remove the WarGup folder. WarGup does not create any registry
entries or files anywhere else (other than the downloaded game patches) so
this is all it takes.
See you on the battlefield,
