ok I compared them, I have some files in my folder 4 of them are: Common.mpq, Common2.mpq, expansion.mpq and lichking.mpq. (are these supposed to be replaced by the ones in the torrent?)

The only files I see that are not there but are in the torrent are: patch.mpq, patch-2.mpq and patch-3.mpq.

I decided to take the long route and just patch everything, but I have this weird error right when I click the very first patch. It says "Patch can't be applied because it is missing data for enGB - etc"

this is really quite distressing especially since it took quite awhile to download all of those patches :(

No, if you are using enGB client all your patches must be enGB. Also when updating manually you must check for every patch version. Blizzard has a funny way of patching things. There are allways big patches and small bug fixes that uselly end with character a at end. Like patch we use it is 3.3.5 a (version 12340). This is last WOTLK patch. Before this patch there was 3.3.5 (version 1XXXXX). It is important that you follow them correctly or you will get errors.

Correctly. Bit since that is a big size and it will take same time as downloading our preinstalled client from torrent. Also it is confirmed to be a working client, witch could in your case after manually patching not be the case.

Important Torrent information:

There was downtime the last 48hrs due to the installation of my own personal tracker on my server as of today 09/18/13 there is a NEW updated torrent to reflect the new tracker information. using 20+ public trackers was not exactly ideal and caused a lot of peoples connection to the main seed to time out now the torrent is being tracked properly and should cut down on failed connection attempts.

To all that are currently seeding this torrent the Files have not changed in any way there is no need to delete or re-download files just simply remove only the torrent and load the new .torrent into your torrent client.

You can play with an enGB client, I have it (WoW-WotLK-3.3.5a-enGB-GC .torrent)

Don't know about other languages, but if you use them remember you are still expected to speak English when you /join world or LookingForGroup

Probably a complete n00b question, but...

I just downloaded the HTTP client (after 2 days, the torrent had only received 41% of the file) but what I received was only the Data folder. Do I just replace the Data folder from WoW (a fresh install, I'm assuming) with this one?

Thanks in advance!

Cap'n Dave

EDIT: Arrgh...never mind, I just answered my own question. I renamed the Data folder to "xyz" and copied over the Data folder from the HTTP download. It didn't work at all. The game wouldn't even launch. Sigh...back to my original plan of getting each of the patches and installing them individually.

EDIT TO MY EDIT: Well, darn. I copied the Data folder over to a different folder for safe-keeping, then copied the downloaded Data folder directly into the WoW Data folder, hoping that over-writing the necessary files would be the key. Again, it didn't work. Back to Plan A!

THIRD EDIT: A last-ditch effort - I copied over all of the files and ensured that nothing was over-written (meaning only copying over the new stuff), but still no dice. C'est la vie!

Question: Was there supposed to be more than just the Data folder in the HTTP download?

Yes, I believe your download is incomplete.

What's the size of that Data folder you got?
Elder Myaoming (aka Slardar): Level 80 Tauren Feral PvE/PvP
Siforosse of the Undercity: Level 80 Undead Affliction Warlock PvP/Demon PvE
Zibuluge of the Ashen Verdict: Level 80 Human Frost DK PvP/PvE
Inverse: Level 80 Human Fire Mage PvP/PvE
Slar: Level 80 Night Elf Resto/Feral Druid PvE

I think it was something like 16.4 gigabytes, but yeah, that's all that was included was the Data folder. Weird. Then again, I've been having problems with downloads completing as of late (wi-fi access here isn't the most reliable at times) so that's probably the reason why it conked out.

Oh well - I'm almost done downloading the patches - I only have one more to go and it's nearly complete.

Looking forward to playing here again! It's been awhile!
