New launcher :(

WarlyxWarlyx Member RarePosts: 2,884

open your gw2 game , notice the new launcher with email adreess and pass... new update btw 1.4gb

now U CANT press play and enjoy the login screen. since u are forced to login in the launcher (no evente yet so no luck)

1 step back in my book :( , hope we dont just jump to char selection screen like Swtor.... we need a login screen with awesome music while login! (or trying to! hehehe)

    I noticed the color code is gone as well. I thought that was a great little feature. I'm not really digging this so far...

    meh!

     

    You can still patch up without logging in so the new launcher doesn't bother me in anyway whatsoever :P

     

    I never had issues logging in during past beta weekends, so I don't think we will have have to tolerate many log in problems at launch.

    agreed

    It looks like there is a login button on the left and a play button to the right.

     

    I don't know what this means, but it is mindblowing.

    I'm curious what lies beyond launcher after you hit play :O

    Maybe it'll be like in LotRO, you log in, choose a server and then hit "Play" (at least that's what is was like when I played LotRO last time, which admittely was a long time ago).

    This is probably done to address the issue of having to log out and in again just to switch characters.  A step forward I must say

    also bear in mind that guild wars has a log in screen too so i bet it will have a at  least flashy log in screen as guild wars does

    If I try to login I get unknown error -9, which I assume just means there is no login server available.

  • nGumbeinGumbei Member Posts: 33

    I still like the special log-in screen more .. it is much more feel into it !

  • DaezAsterDaezAster Member UncommonPosts: 788

    I hope this isn't a sign of things to come. Don't start messing with stuff that was cool already. I will probably go straight to the forums to complain about this before even playing the game.

  • AldersAlders Member RarePosts: 2,160

    If this fixes the inablilty to log out to character select, then I'm all for it.

  • QuenchsterQuenchster Member Posts: 450

    I hope it jumps to the GW2 logo as a title screen and then there is a play button to continue to the character screen.

    Yes though it might sound ridiculous. The color code and music missing bothers me. What bothers me more is it was fine how it was. Don't go messing where you shouldn't be messing. I use a pretty long pass and the color authenticator was great for knowing that your pass is right when having issues logging in.

    People... it's a game launcher.  I want to play the game, not the log in screen image

    I agree, there's still music when you select your server and character custumation and ingame..

    Well I seem to be a player that for some reason mistakes this weekend for beta weekend.

    Why would you want to stare at the old login screen? Seriously? That's pretty obsessive. Sure it was kinda nice, but after you've seen it once what's so special about it.

    This way is more efficient.. before we had to press play, it loads, login and it loads to get to character select. Now we just press login, play and it loads.

    I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

    [[unknown error:9]] = ppears when one tries to log in (with correct login details) when there is no beta event running.

    Will be much better in the long run. It's handy to have your launcher ready to go while you're still busy with some other programs / windows.

    + the issue of having to enter the information again, instead of going to char select.

     

    They can still play the awesome music at the character select :p

    Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!
