[Client] Option to bypass Launcher to run WoW
Return to board index
I'd like to see an option in the Wowhead Client to start WoW directly, instead of going through the Launcher. It just takes extra time to load, and Blizzard still hasn't fixed the deafening sound bug, so I usually don't bother with the "Launch WoW" button in the Client, and just close it and run WoW myself.
I would guess that the Wowhead Client invokes Launcher.exe. If you've set WoW to not use the Launcher it will bypass it.
When you set the option after launch the shortcut on your desktop doesn't get changed.
That sounds kind of stupid now that I've re-read it.
What I mean is: if you toggle off the option to show the launcher while in game you still open WoW using Launcher.exe, it just bypasses showing the launcher unless there is an update to be applied. What this means is, the Wowhead Client doesn't need this option if you've toggled off the "Show Launcher" option in the game.
Yes, disable showing the launcher
. The launcher has
as well that it would unwise to bypass. These features still have effect even if you disable showing the launcher.
I do have the "Show Launcher" box unchecked at the WoW login screen (I just double-checked), but the "Launch WoW" button in the Wowhead Client still brings up the Launcher (also double-checked), deafening me with that horrible sound and making me click an extra button to actually start WoW.
Silly question, but can't you just open WoW yourself while the Wowhead Client is running? I never launch WoW through the client, yet I still have all the functions of the Client.
