    Display bug

    I'll see what I can do later. Quick fix is to change the Display compact carousel setting and then change it back to what it was.
  3. The news of the last wave of cheat bans is causing a lot of misplaced concern among players using legit modpacks from Aslain, Hakabase or ModStation. I think the main reason for this is the cryptic and short ban message that mentions 'illegal mods' only. I am sure the real cheaters complain the loudest, however, I got the impression a number of banned or warned players used illegal apps unwittingly. They may not know what program is the reason for the ban and because of the wording of the message their attention is focused entirely, and mistakenly, on something they got from a mod pack. I know WG has explained many times and many places what they regard as illegal mods, and their definition includes ReShade and other post processors, but for most people a mod is only what they got from a modpack. So when they are told they are using an illegal mod, they think they got it from the modpack and that will actually prevent them from considering what the real issue may be. WG should change the wording of the ban message from 'You have received a first warning for using illegal modifications' to something closer to the EULA, like 'You have received a first warning for using illegal third party programs'. This change would help WG communicate more clearly what they mean. p.s I have also posted this on the WoWS NA Forum: https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/179440-suggestion-change-the-wording-of-ban-and-warning-messages/
  4. I have forwarded your request to the author.

    Got a warning from WG about illegal mod use

    It was allegedly in one of the responses he got from WG Customer Service: "Hello again, Some old mods can still be somewhere in the game folder and still causing some issues. So clean install is the only way to make sure that there is no third party software that may interfere with the game. For example, SweetFX, ReShade, ENBSeries, FXAA Tool that are normally harmless, can create extra .dll files in the game folder, that is why it is essential to verify their presence on your computer. The subsidiary risk is also mods that change script.zip file. Before applying such restrictions, the Administration makes detailed verification to confirm the facts of violations. There are no mistakes. Please note that continued use of prohibited mods will result in a game suspension on your game account. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding in regards to this matter. "

    illegal Mods ?

    He said he reinstalled his card. He did not seem like someone who'd go for tweaks or add ons, but I'm just guessing.

    Got a warning from WG about illegal mod use

    Just posted under the pinned illegal mods entry that may be relevant. AMD GPUs usually come with a full software suite and not just the driver. Do you have FXAA installed? It used to be bundled with ATI (now AMD) GPUs AND it's banned by WG.

    illegal Mods ?

    It seems WG is automating some of their rules enforcement. (Now I get chat bans even when nobody is reporting me. I assume they put me on constant surveillance for being a repeat offender.) Some players, who are not even using any mods, are getting bans for 'Illegal Mod Use'. (I wonder if the monitoring for illegal software is done through Game Center or not.) This is one guy's story: https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/179310-psa-if-you-use-a-ati-card/

    Installing latest mod pack error messages

    Do you have your Desktop on OneDrive?? (If yes, why??) OneDrive is the Microsoft cloud storage drive, so if you save a file to it, it will be saved on the MS Cloud and your storage capacity there is determined by the plan you have with them: free, promo free or paid. If you have 'Always keep on this device' checked for the folder you are saving your file in (in this case your Desktop folder) then your file will also be saved on your hard drive. It seems your OneDrive in the cloud may be at max capacity but your hard drive has room. So OneDrive complains but the file still gets saved on your hard drive. Just a guess, though.

    TROJAN Alert!

    Did you freak out? I am writing this not to report a bug, but to show what those aggressive anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-ransomware, you name it, apps protect you from when you are trying to download a modpack from Aslain. Don't get me wrong, these apps are legit, even though they are prone to false positives (because they want to err on the safe side), and there are some really evil people out there trying to get nasty things inside your PC and do harm, but Aslain's monetizing partner is not one of them. To prove, I clicked on WoWS modpack download link #3 and this is what happened, my PC did not like the website: But I wanted to see all them Trojans, and get my PC infected by all of them, so I added swiftviz.net to my exclusion list: When I clicked on download link #3 again, it turned out that the website does not love back my PC either: After disabling AdBlock on this site (the steps above need to be done only once), I finally got to the much dreaded ADVERTISEMENTS! And, to my dismay, I did find something that might be construed as misleading: the prompt in the little pop-up box in the top left corner that says "Press Allow to continue". It should read "Allow or Deny swiftviz.net to send you notifications". You do not have to click 'Allow' to continue. Only if you want to get notifications from swiftviz. You don't have to click on 'Deny' either. The little pop-up box does have a title that says 'swiftviz.net Notification', therefore 'continue', 'Allow' and 'Deny' all pertain to that. But it's easy to miss and it's like that on purpose for sure. So ignore that box and just wait for the 5 second timer to run down and click on 'SKIP AD' in the top right corner when it pops up. That will bring up the download box: and the website, as a parting shot, pops up another frame with another advertisement: So, this is it. Two webpages with ads. One of them forcing you to stay on it for 5 seconds. Annoying? For sure. But harmful? This way Aslain gets some money for his work. If you loath it, or if you are still worried and absolutely won't put up with it, you can download the modpack direct and support him through Patreon.

    My mod will not install

    My guess would be an overzealous anti-something. The usual suspects are Windows 10 UAC, Windows Defender, anti-virus and anti-malware apps. The newest are the anti-ransomware apps. Even my backup software got one built in: every time a program, like the modpack installer, creates a lot of files and folders, it will be stopped. Of course this is just a guess. You may try to install just one mod first to see if the modpack installer finishes or not.
  13. The "RESET" button, on the "STATISTICS" tab is not working. (v.7.11.0 #01) As you can see, I got some valid reasons to ask that it gets fixed soon.

    @barndog1946 That's what "Move GUI elements #1" does. Are you using that mod?
