Note : a chinese client isn't involved at any part of this guide.


Important : if you previously fixed your foreign client to play on Chinese realm version 3.2.2 you have to revert the modification by using the batch option RESTORE or by reverting all modifications you did manually. You won't be able to apply new patch on your client until you have done this.

Play on China Mainland realms in the language of your choice

A. Patch your foreign client for Chinese Servers using the batch file (100% WORKING)

Note : a chinese client isn't involved at any part of this guide.


1. Get a FOREIGN WOTLK CLIENT. Patch it to 3.3.5.a(3.3.5.12340)[patch/full client download][guide:downgrade your client]

important :(expensions aren't mandatory outside of China. if you don't have the file wow/data/lichking.mpq then you have a TBC3.3.5.a client), and won't be able to access the northrend continent.

2. extract http://www.gamefront.com/files/20318169/TOwowCN3.3.5.13930.rar into your /wow folder.

3. execute TOwowCN3.3.5.13930.bat and follow the instructions. Make sure the file name match the current version of the Chinese servers.

4. download http://www.filefront.com/17325058/Fonts.rar and extract it in your c:\wow. You should have a new Font folder c:\wow\Fonts (you need to do this if you wanna read Chinese symbols in game)(Since 3.3.5 a new font was added in the game, you should redownload this archive if you played anterior versions with these fonts)

5. Start the game with Wow.exe. that's all.

NOTE The RESTORE option will automaticaly undo all the modifications. You'll need to remove the fix when an update of your client is needed

B. Patch your foreign client for Chinese Servers manually

Note : a chinese client isn't involved at any part of this guide.


For those who prefer do it manually

Important : if you modify your client manually do not ever use the batch file to PATCH your client unless you are sure to have reverted all the manual modifications previously made. Not doing so will result in a corrupted client most of the time.

1. Get a FOREIGN WOTLK CLIENT. Patch it to 3.3.5.a(3.3.5.12340)[patch/full client download][guide:downgrade your client]

important :(expensions aren't mandatory outside of China. if you don't have the file wow/data/lichking.mpq then you have a TBC3.3.5.a client), and won't be able to access the northrend continent.


2. in wow\ rename wow.exe, launcher.exe, battle.net.dll into wow.exe.bak, launcher.exe.bak, battle.net.dll.bak

3. In C:\wow\data rename the folder enUS into enCN (enUS folder is named differently depending on the language of your client. German will be deDE, french frFR.)

4. In C:\wow\data\enCN. ALL the files name containing "enUS" must be renamed with "enCN" . ex. patch-enUS.mpq must be renamed patch-enCN.mpq. (enUS files are named differently depending on the language of your client. German will be deDE, french frFR.)

5. copy C:\wow\data\enCN\realmlist.wtf. rename the copy realmlist.wtf.bak

6. dowload this archive http://www.gamefront.com/files/20318169/TOwowCN3.3.5.13930.rar and extract it somewhere

- copy the file patch9.mpq into /wow/data
- copy the file patch-enCN-9.mpq into /wow/data/enCN
- copy the file realmlist.wtf into /wow/data/enCN
- copy wow.exe, launcher.exe, battle.net.dll into /wow

(if you wish to use your own .exe files, know that it must come from an up-to-date chinese client. the *.mpq files need to be downloaded from the forum, they just contain a simple text file with a version number, so no worries)

7. download http://www.filefront.com/17325058/Fonts.rar and extract it in your c:\wow. You should have a new Font folder c:\wow\Fonts.(you need to do this if you wanna read Chinese symbols in game)

8. start the game with wow.exe

- note: To restore your client just reverse what you did in this guide and you are good. you'll have to do this if an update must be applied on your foreign client.

C. Troubleshooting

1. OMG the game crash and I get an error message

- If you used the batch, then it means you somehow corrupted your installation, by mixing foreign and chinese clients files, or doing manual modifications you didn't revert.

Use the batch file and select DOWNGRADE, then follow the instructions.

- If you modified your client manually, then it's possible you made some mistakes when renaming or copying some files, check rechek everything. If it still doesn't work use the batch file DOWNGRADE option or follow guide:downgrade your client

2. I'm sure I patched the client correctly, the game start just fine, but after login I get the wrong version message

- Make sure you use your battle.net email login or you'll get the wrong version message.

- Redownload the batch file archive and use the RESTORE option. Then PATCH again.

- open wow/data/enCN/realmlist.wtf with the bloc-notes or any text-editor, and copy paste
Code:
set realmlist cn.logon.warcraftchina.com
set patchlist cn.version.warcraftchina.com
set realmlistbn ""
set portal cn
and save the file.

3. I've tried the previous solutions but am still stuck

- Gather as much valuable informations as you can about your problem and come post it on the support thread
