The content of this post is currently outdated - Please use the links at the top of this thread

1. Getting everything that you need !

In order to make the installation you will need the following:

1. A NEW European / US client which you can download of the official website !
2. All the Patches untill VERSION 3.1.3 not more not less.
I download mine there, but if you dont trust me you can also get them somewhere else.
3. Download the data file which u need later.
These are the 2 .mpq files
4. Download the Root fileswhich you will need later.
These are the Chinese client root files
5. Download the Launcher file which u need later.
This is the skeleton.exe launcher, some Anti Virus programs will give an alert for this but dont worry its a false positive!
6. Download the Font file which u need later.
These are the chinese fonts files for reading / writing
7. and last but not least: A Chinese wow account, Click Here! For the guide or ask a chinese friend to do this for you !

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Here we go !

1. install the client of the language of your choice first e.g. English / german / russian.
sidenote: you can install all the expansions its no problem as long as you do not update them !

2. Use the manual Patches you have downloaded to update your version to 3.1.3.
sidenote: whenever a patch says it cannot install because you have to little hard drive space left and this is NOT the case, then you have a bad patch file and need to download from another mirror or website !

3. Make a Copy of your entire World of Warcraft folder to another location e.g. an external hard drive.
sidenote: you will need this for updating your client.
sidenote: If you dont have enough space delete some pron
sidenote: if you still dont have enough space you can also make a copy of the enUS/enGB/deDE/frFR/ruRU folder inside your data folder, We are not sure if the new update would bring anything special so only do this when you are really attached to the pron...

4. Open your World of Warcraft folder and go to the Data folder.

5. Inside there is a folder called enUS/enGB/deDE/frFR/ruRU.

6. change the name of the enUS/enGB/deDE/frFR/ruRU into: enCN.
sidenote: other language also change it into enCN we want the program to believe that e.g. frFR is enCN.

7. open the enCN folder you just named.

8. inside you will see 8 files that end with .mpq, Change the name so that all the files have enCN instead of enUS/enGB/deDE/frFR/ruRU
sidenote: Also all other languages should change into "enCN" e.g. rename patch-frFR.mpq into patch-enCN.mpq).

9. extract the Data file you DOWNLOADED into your world of warcraft folder without changing the structure !
sidenote: you should see 2 new files now inside your world of warcraft data folder: patch-3.MPQ into data folder and patch-enCN-3.MPQ into data\enCN\ sub folder
sidenote: if your language is different then english you will need another DATA file Download.

10. Go into the Data folder, then into the enCN folder and open the file realmlist.wtf
sidenote: you can open this file with notepad or word.

11. Change the text inside the file so it looks as the following:
set realmlist cn.logon.warcraftchina.com
set patchlist cn.version.warcraftchina.com
set realmlistbn ""
set portal cn


then save it.


12. Extract the Root files you downloaded into your World of Warcraft game folder.

13. Extract the Font file you DOWNLOADED into your World of Warcraft game folder.

14. Extract the Launcher file you DOWNLOADED into your World of Warcraft game folder.

15. There is a file inside the World of Warcraft folder called Skeleton.exe if you want to play wow use this file to start it.
sidenote: you can make a shortcut of the skeleton.exe file to your desktop if you like.

16. Start up the Skeleton.exe file and press the big button and see what happens !.

The Credit for this guide goes to the following people since i just copy/paste their guides and simplified a little: Masterfade, Suzhou-Alex, Bolomas, Leewaihom and Khelben !

Very good guid StiXx but just one details :
Quote :

5. Uninstall World of Warcraft but KEEP the folder you CUT and PASTED !

6. Install the Chinese Client of World of Warcraft.

if People Uninstall the non-Chinese Wow, you should precise that when they will need to patch their english data folder (let's say chinese wow update to 3.2.2 you'll have to use the 3.2.2 non-Chinese wow), they will need to reinstall the whole foreign version and repatch everything again. (that's why moving the english wow on another partition or external-harddrive like explained in a previous guide isn't so unuseful)

Just one little hint after wow has started go back to your desktop via the windows key and close the skeleton.exe (just needed for start up).

I recommend that because no one of us has created or know what is in the file so to be secured there is no key-logger or anything else Harmful i suggest u close it before typing your Password and start to connect!!!!

igniter you can have two different clients but they should be on a separate partition. For exemple if both you versions are on C:/ you'll have some conflict. Now if one is on C:/ and one on D:/, then all will be well. Working like a charm for me.

"2. Use the manual updates you have downloaded to update your version to 3.1.3."

Link #3 means I need to download every crappy mini patch until 3.1.3? -____-





On a side note, it seems having any previous version messes it up pretty bad. I deleted my updated North American client and it's still preventing me from installing a regular North American client freshly Sad

Make sure when you uninstall you delete all the files in the folder,
All the files we modified or added keep staying in the folder when you uninstall wow.

I only have 9 MPQ files AFTER I put the unrar the DATA download?

I log in now and it's still in Chinese, even though it has English data.
As of now I'm not sure how that is possible. If I tick the NA and English
box on the skeleton it doesn't load. What ticks on skeleton should be
click using a NA client in China?

The FONT download is broken. (I was sent another -- not sure if it works
since I haven't gotten my client working yet)

You need more then 9 MPQ Files so there is something you are doing wrong... I suggest you start over or check the new guide in First reply !

Also if the new Font link works Could you PM it to me so i can add it to the guide?

Yo lollita!!!You're back on Wow China? Let me explain you, you cannot use the matrix with the current version of wow. So you either have to disable it, or you can follow the instructions here : http://wow-in-chinese.forum2jeux.com/general-f1/important-matrix-3digits-solution-100-safe-t1367.htm

Goodluck and see you in game Smile

EDIT : a lollita be sure to tick 英文语音 when you start the game.

hi mate

it sounds you didn't follow exactly the guide. I dont get your point what u mean with.... should I have frCN, enCN (the Data folder downloaded) and zhCN in my Data folder

Just to make it easier.
-Do you have the chinese version installed?
If yes its better to modify the data folder in the Chinese version instead on your french client!!!!!!!

Just do as explained in the guide but copy the french data into the chinese client much easier and faster.

Hi

I did follow exactly the guide, which is very good. I did modify the data folder into the chinese client (I did this in a wangba).

But it seems that my problem comes from the fact that my french client only has 8 .mpq... I don't know why.

About the other problem, let's see the guide.

Quote :

"12. change the name of the enUS/enGB/deDE/frFR/ruRU into: enCN.
sidenote: other language change the name into your language."

Okay so if I understand now I should have frCN and zhCN, am I right ?

"15. extract the DATA file you DOWNLOADED into your world of warcraft folder without changing the structure !
sidenote: you should see 2 new files now inside your world of warcraft data folder: patch-3.MPQ into data\ and patch-enCN-3.MPQ into data\enCN\"

So now I should have frCN, zhCN and the new one : enCN. I think you forget to mention to change the language if we use another language, right ?

Thanks for your quick reply, btw Smile

So I have to change "patch-enCN-3.MPQ" in the enCN folder into "patch-frCN-3.MPQ", is that right ?

But before doing this, I need the 2 missing MPQ files. They are the 2 "lichking" MPQ files. So I need to install the LK expansion (and it takes time with my crappy network). The best way would be that a French send me these 2 files... Any French here ? Smile

No it s not the chinese files who need to be renamed into french files it's the inverse. All your file-frFR.mpq must be renamed into file-cnCN.mpq.

Be sure to backup your original data/frFR folder because you'll need it back to normal when a new patch is available in China.[/img]

Bolomas, thx for your reply but you're confusing me more...

Okay, let's make it clear once and for all.

Finally, I should have 2 folders into DATA : frCN and zhCN.

Inside the frCN folder, every MPQ file should be *****-frCN.MPQ.

Only the new patch that I downloaded should remain in enCN : "patch-enCN-3.MPQ".

Is that right ?

PS : Am I the first one to follow this guide using another language than english ??

O really sorry LeHurleur I mistyped, it was enCN not cnCN.

So look now : (just restaure your french client data folder like it was when you patched it)

2. Go to "wow/data" folder and create a copy of the folder "enEN/frFR/ruRU/deDE/etc" and rename it enCN. So for exemple if you use the french client you'll have 2 folders, one called frFR and one copy of frFR but named enCN.

3. now go into the enCN folder and RENAME the part of all the files name containing "enEN/frFR/ruRU/deDE/etc..." with "enCN" (exemple : rename patch-frFR.mpq into patch-enCN.mpq)

4. Into wow/ folder(the one where the wow.exe is located) create a new folder and name it "Backup" . Now select all the files (not the folders) into your /wow folder and CUT and PASTE them into the freshly created backup folder. Now your wow/ should only contain folders.

5. Download http://www.filefront.com/15012441/WOW%20CN.rar and extract it into your wow/ folder. Note :this archive contain all the root files of the chinese client. If you don't trust this source(uploaded by bolomas), you can install the chinese client, patch it up to 3.1.3 and copy all the chinese "wow/" files(not the folders) into your foreign "wow/" folder.

skip stixX guide point 1 to 14

Lol now after looking more carefully the guide I see why I confused you more LeHurleur, StixX's guide makes you copy the French files into the chinese Client.

Well you either do what I told you just before and then download the file I linked and copy these files into your french client;

otherwise you follow StixX guide and copy the frFR into the Chinese data folder. So after doing a backup of the original enCN folder you must make the program believe that the frFR folder is in fact the chinese enCN folder.
So you rename it into enCN(not frCN) and all the files inside containing frFR must be renamed with enCN.

Yay, everything works now !!! ^o^

Thanks a lot Bolomas, your method is a lot simpler (but the Skeleton wasn't included in your RAR file and btw what is the "Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest" file ???)

@Stixx : You should replace the link for the patch-enCN-3.MPQ that you give here by the other, the one that works, this one : "www.filefront.com/14889709/patch-enCN-3.MPQ".

Thanks again to you both !

A cool that you get it to work, sorry for the added confusion in my previous posts. for the "Microsoft.VC80.CRT.manifest" I don't really know what is the use for it, but it is on both my chinese and english client so I guess it's ok. (PS: not been hacked till now) ^^

Yeah, sorry I speak too quickly, I thought it was just in your RAR file.

Everything works fine but I think I'll have to play in a wangba because it's too slow at my home. Or maybe it's a temporary problem.

There's something else : I cannot create a male character... I had an error message when I tried to create a new character and then impossible to choose "male". (That's not a real problem for me as I already have a character but maybe other people have encountered this too ?)

A yeah LeHurleur nice you reported it I have the same problem, so for sure it's because I ripped the interface files from the 3.2.2 version and it somehow doesn't work perfectly with our 3.1.3 clients. I gonna try to do a new file with our 3.1.3 chinese interface files, It should work fine.
Will provide an upload tomorrow morning, thx for the info Smile

This works great thanks a lot.

Some clarifications for stupid people like me are --
you won't have 9 mpq files until you add the /data/ folder.
skeleton.exe = launcher.
your modding the chinese client to english, not the english client to chinese.
wrong version of your english etc client = fail. make sure it's 3.1.3
even if you just want to run a chinese client that font folder is awesome.

To add, you MUST do it patch by patch. I tried to find a full patch to 3.0 and then go from there, but it just ended up crashing and burning. Don't be lazy, it'll just waste more time than you need to.

Oh, and if your virus scanner shows skeleton.exe as a trojan, it's a false positive. My two really hate it.

You have to install all patches by Hand. Place them in your wow Folder and Start launcher or the Patch directly!

Hi !

I've been looking on the links given and on google, can't get the patches for version 3.1.3. Only to 3.0.2 that leads me to download 3.2.0 patch or full 3.2.0 patch.

Thank you for your great help !

"No such special page
