iirc its possible to enter that command in offline game first and then it will still work in all further online games
That's no longer possible, fixed ages ago.

Unfortunately, this is officially designated as a cheat by the game developers.
Some years ago I released wkAwesome, one of its features was hiding the water waves, as well as sprites, the game HUD (timer, wind, chat bars, etc.), the landscape, and disabling the background redrawing (the "awesome" effect). However, I quickly removed it because the water feature was cheating, and because I did not properly set up compatibility. It wasn't for general use anyway, so it remains in some hidden forum on TUS. I might update it later for the general public if necessary.

If you are using the CD version, it is impossible to remove it, because it is burned on the compact disk.
Otherwise look for DATA\User\Fanfare\Worms!.wav

According to an early report, the Fall Creators Update (1709) fixes this problem.
Edit: got a second report that confirms the above.

Instant replays are probably very broken in PX. Make sure you never encounter them, and disable them in your scheme or play Direct IP games.
Unfortunately, crashes cause PX replays to become corrupt. They will be missing all the PX-specific data, because that is usually added after the end of the game.

You set permissions at the "Security" tab in folder or file properties. If you don't get the option to properly Change permissions for your User, click the owner and change it to your user. After that is done, you should be able to add yourself into the list of permissions.

I have already replied in your original thread 2 weeks ago. Here it is, in case you missed it. Right-click WA.exe, choose Properties -> enable Compatibility mode with Windows 8 or 7.
This should probably be the most painless method (does not alter the feel of the game, easy to enable).

You need to install D3D9Wnd, then you can change your resolution to any resolution you want (such as 1920x1080), even if your monitor doesn't support it. To do that, either use wkLobbyCmd to get the /setres command in lobby, or edit DisplayXSize and DisplayYSize in registry (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Team17SoftwareLTD\WormsArmageddon\Options); pay attention to decimal/hexadecimal editing mode.

Hi people, so as it stands right now (based on all the information I've collected from testers, since I can't reproduce the issues on any of my machines -- might be outdated drivers but I'll try it soon), the issue can be solved in one the following ways, other than enabling windowed mode:
  • Enable vsync in-game, but force-disable it in nvidia (roping etc. may feel different)
  • Enable Windows 8 or 7 compatibility in the WA.exe properties.
Not sure about quirks other than black screen.
Also would be nice if someone affected by the issue could try launching the game on the Fall Creators Update (the latest) with the latest Nvidia drivers. Thanks!

A new solution from FaD, confirmed to work by at least 2 people so far.
Enable Windows 8 or 7 compatibility mode in WA.exe properties.

Anyone affected by this issue should also try updating to the new Fall Creators Update and report the situation there.

Don't have any problems with W:A on steam (except 1-2 seconds of black screen after minimizing, picking new maps, editing scheme, returning back to lobby..)
I wasn't saying it's a Steam problem though. I was saying that many people on the Steam forums had this issue, this affects both the CD and Steam editions. Steam represents a good portion of the casual playerbase.

One year has passed since the release of 0.4! A new update for SuperFrontendHD will come soon.

Is there a wkSuperFrontEnd for WA version I'll be needing it for playing PX games.
The module doesn't support, because the code differences are expectedly big, and this is not a priority at the moment. Also I am not optimistic about the performance of's frontend at larger resolutions, even if you add wndmode.dll. Maybe only on older Windows systems.
I still don't get what this module brings to a game instead of HD menu (where all maps gets smaller and harder to edit)?
One important thing is that it resolves the lack of 640x480 support on a variety of drivers, the #1 issue on the Steam forums, which prevents many people from launching the game. D3D9Wnd is another solution, but it makes the frontend either tiny or badly stretched without this module, and doesn't preserve exclusive fullscreen (although since D3D9Wnd, it is now possible to optionally have exclusive fullscreen in-game, while keeping frontend windowed).

Also, FaD told me that he doesn't get screen stuttering (with v-sync OFF) while using mentioned module.
I tried it and stuttering continued as usual - if not worse..
That's probably because the higher the resolution, the lower the framerate (especially in frontend, which suffers more), so by upping the resolution, his non-vsync framerate went down to nearly his screen refresh rate, making it appear like there's no stuttering.

This question keeps getting asked, but since the original T17 thread is buried, I'll repeat the answer: it's because Deadcode bought Worms Armageddon.

This seems to happen on Win 10 Creators Update with some NVIDIA cards when vsync is disabled in the game settings (and d3d9 is on).
One of the solutions: enable vsync in the game settings, but force-disable it in the NVIDIA control panel for WA. This may not feel the same as with the previous setup.

Another possible (untested!) solution: Right-click WA.exe, select Properties - Compatibility - "Disable full-screen optimizations". This is new and untested, and because I can not reproduce this issue on my system, I ask everyone who is/was affected by the issue to try this out (disable any of your current workarounds first). This may have something to do with the new Game Mode on Windows 10.
Edit: this doesn't work according to Asbest, FaD and Tiku.

means wont be able to host from now on til all over? id prefer to leave it on, laggy games are better than no games...
Until the maintenance is over (and maybe some more time, depends), it will be running on my home PC instead, which is on all the time anyway.
