Installing

#1 » Post by shoobz727 » 29 Jul 2022 22:39

I'm certain this is an easy one, but wanted to ask. When asked to do this part, is this in the original WoW folder or the one DLed for Truewow? thanks!

...Locate the file "realmlist.wtf" inside your WoW folder. It is usually inside the Data folder, in subfolder enUS or enGB (depending on your client locale). You can open realmlist.wtf using any plain text editor, such as Notepad. You will want to edit the text inside this file to have a single line saying "set realmlist login.truewow.org". Save the file, and close it.

Normally it's located on C partition on your hard drive. so it would be C>World Of Warcraft folder> Data >EnGb >Open realmist folder as Notepad. What ever you do, you can always copy files to desktop, before changing. So you can switch back :)

Thank you! Yeah, after many years of gaming and altering some files, you learn quick to make copies of what you might just mess up, lol. One other thing, once that is done, am I launching the game from the original WoW or this folder?

Launch it from folder. Wow.exe file, you can make shortcut on desktop. Also, make sure you enter in-game account name, not email when logging in

What do you mean when you say original wow?

The original files that I had installed...well, a long time ago.

Regardless, I am in. Thank you for the help! After 10 years, I pretty much have no clue even the basics so this should be fun, lol. It should all come back quickly I hope.
