Hey War Thunder, what if I told you starting on launch and auto-updating gets you uninstalled?

Hey @Vash, what if I told you selecting to turn off auto-updates and start up on launch prevented all that?

Small 36df47b405aaa2564575447d0b3a701c
OK LETS BREAK THS DOWN. 1) continue download may be turned off, but because auto update isnt, it auto updates. the conclusion that can be drawn for this hypothesis is you're retarded.

War Thunder launcher auto update is possibly the greatest thing to happen to the game, think of all the times PS2 was unplayable due to a 15gb update launched a week earlier. Launchers are cancer, but when they include the option for autoupdate it is a very good thing.

@Prophecy I don't get your point there. That's exactly the point I'm making. I tell it to stop but it doesn't stop. You defined the continue function as continuing what it's already doing, which is what it's doing with it off. The updates were started and paused days ago. Yet it keeps coming up. As per your own fucking definition there it shouldn't be.
Small 4dd53337d812071cb01527f2050f2b3e

You're literally sperging out over the continue function when it has obviously just detected a new update, y'know, kinda like there's usually a couple of small patches that come immediately after any large fucking updates.

The thing @Vash is complaining about is actually NOT WAR THUNDER AT ALL, Its the Gaijin.Net Agent. THAT is what runs on startup and WarThunder's autoupdate is just a hook that tells the Agent to look for WT updates and start the WT launcher when one is found. This Agent program is designed to work with all of their games and is NOT WT specific. To disable launch on startup, remove the Gaijin Net Agent from your startup list. Enabling Auto Updates in ANY Gaijin game will put it back in the startup list so just be aware of that.

You mean "Manually find and delete the 3 different program folders relating to the net agent and wait for it to reinstall with each Launcher update, which also has a common proven record of turning on Auto update, and re-adds itself to Startup."

Yes, just delete it. That's the only problem here.
