TOwowCN guide has been updated. To make sure everything went fine you can start the game, login as usual, and if the message can't connect appear, it means everything is fine.

You should expect servers to be offline until tomorrow.

Ok bad news guys, the fix doesn't work anymore.

I get this error message :

This application has encountered a critical error:

Code:
ERROR #121 (0x85100079) Version Mismatch
Program:   G:\World of Warcraft en 1\Wow.exe

DBFilesClient\BattlemasterList.dbc has wrong number of columns (found 31, expected 32)

Using skeleton.exe ended into the same message. I'm using an enUS client at version 3.3.5.a

Hello everyone, Im having a little trouble going from 3.2.2.a to 3.3.0 on a Us client

when I try to go from 3.2.2.12484 with the 3.2.2.a to 3.3.0 patch file I get a error message that reads like this : This update does not need to be applied. It requires version 3.2.2.10505 of "WoW.exe", but you already have version 3.2.2.12484.

should I try to downgrade my wow version to 3.2.2.10505

/confused

some help would be great

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.

They mentioned that there would be a downtime for 24hours.
So mostlikely you will not be able to play until after midnight.
But you will get many improvements Smile so in the mean time go outside and enjoy the day.

Could be my office connection, but finding it tough to download the patches. Using the wowwiki mirror list for old patches, the downloads keep breaking ("finishing" within the first 10%, leaving a broken file "complete")

Have any of you guys found a reliable mirror?

http://www.patches-scrolls.de/world_of_warcraft.php

as allways download at your own risk and once downloaded double check the files with Antivirus etc. BEFORE unzipping and AFTER unzipping.

http://hotfile.com/dl/60753857/b3d5dba/WoW-3.3.0.10958-to-3.3.5.12340-enUS-patch.zip.html

Thanks for the suggestions.

I seem to be getting good rates from www.wow-patch.in for the first update (to 3.3.0), but they only have the very small incremental ones after 3.3.0, so I will check those suggested sites for 3.3.0 => 3.3.5a (I need enGB patches)

And yes indeed, thanks a lot for the quick work on the update Smile

@Gruumsh44:
You need to get back to 3.2.2.10505, so that you can start patching.
Maybe you can check which is the version you have at the moment. If you don't know or are not sure how to check, simply start the game and check in the left lower corner.

Side note.
Best is to NOT have an internet connection during the manual patching, because if you have an internetconnection the launcher will start after each pach and will start to try to download the 4.0 patch.

ok, I guess your wow folder is messed up a bit.
First it is important that you do NOT use the "new" TOwowCN, until you have succesfully patched to 3.3.5.

So I think you have 2 solutions:
either you restart with a clean WOTLK client and patch it manualy to 3.3.5
or you try to fix what is messed up.

If you wana fix, you might want to put the old TOwowCN folder into your wow folder. Do not put the new one in the folder.
Do the revert process one more time. then remove the TOwowCN folder.
Try to start the game via wow.exe.
If it gives you an error, try out the repair function.
Make sure you do NOT download patch 4.0
If repair was successfull, check the version you got and start patching you client. Again do not insert the TOwowCN folder to your wow folder until you patched up to the last 3.3.5 version.

If you don't mess, the way it works is
1 you execute the batch
2 you choose RESTORE
3 everything is good and you can patch your game.

Now if you mess, caus of X reason
1 you execute the batch
2 you choose DOWNGRADE option
3 you patch again from 3.0.1

Concerning the TOwowCN folder:

Once you have a foreign client fully patched, you can copy the whole TOwowCN folder into your wow folder. Do NOT take anything out of the folder, only open the TOwowCN folder and double click "TOwowCNx.x.x.bat" and follow the instructions on how to modify, so that you can play on Chinese servers with your foreign client. (if you are not sure come to the forum and ask)

Later when a new patch is available, do the following:
you need to first revert the process.
This means you need to open the TOwowCN folder and double click "TOwowCNx.x.x.bat" and follow the instructions. (if you are not sure how, come to the forum and ask)

After the process is finished, you can remove the whole TOwowCN folder. Then you start patching your foreign client.
When finished with patching, copy the newest TOwowCN into your wow folder. Then open the TOwowCN folder and double click "TOwowCNx.x.x.bat" and follow the instructions.


Notice:
If you start taking things out of the TOwowCN folder or/and use the new TOwowCN before you finished the revert process, you will mess up your wow folder and it will be difficult to clean it up and you mostlikely need to restart with a new WOW client.

Muhan it's ok if ppl use the new TOwowCN to RESTORE the 3.2.2.a client. The thing is you have to stick to what is said on the guide.

If you are in hurry and decide to read between the lines or do a few file mix on your own then you'll mess your install.

If that happens just DOWNGRADE your client and start patching again.

Thats wha happen to me befor e the batch works fine including restore as long as ur wow folder never changed!!!!!
what happe n to me was i used the batch file for 3.1.3 but installed a new windows before pushing restore and it killed my original European / taiwan client and not my patched version i used to play in china Sad

Then use on one of f them the repair option from wow afterwards uu migt patch from scrap but its a safe way ...since ur problem description is not very usefull to interprate what went wrong!!!

Please help!!!! Thanks in advance!

I was playing on TW server a few months ago, doing ICC, I stopped playing for awhile so I did not update the TW client to their latest game content.

From what I remember the client number in TW was 3.3.5 (dont remember the detail batch number that follows).

Since now CN server is also ICC content with 3.3.5, can I simply copy the TW client files and able to logon onto the updated CN server?

If not is it because the detail 3.3.5 batch number is a little different and what procedures are require to get it to work? It would be great if I can just copy the files directly because all addon are setup for 3.3.5.

I am sure other player may encounter the same issue since some will want to come back to CN server like me. Big thanks to anyone who has the knowledge and is willing to give some advice!!!

Ok bad news guys, the fix doesn't work anymore.

I get this error message :

This application has encountered a critical error:

Code:
ERROR #121 (0x85100079) Version Mismatch
Program:   G:\World of Warcraft en 1\Wow.exe

DBFilesClient\BattlemasterList.dbc has wrong number of columns (found 31, expected 32)

Using skeleton.exe ended into the same message. I'm using an enUS client at version 3.3.5.a

OK false alert. Working like a charm now Smile

Had me worried for a minute there... Thanks again ! The foreign community in CWoW may be small, but I'm sure they all appreciate how helpful and quick you are at making our games work with ease. I know I do. clapclap worship

Hi stItCh,

Thank you so much for quick response!!

Yes, I just logon to TW server and version no is 12340 so I think I am in luck.

I will now go ahead to use the patch file and see how it goes, I think the realmlist will also be changed by the patch file? Anyway I will try right now.

If it all works out my interface should be excatly the same as what I am seeing on the TW server, that would save me a work of work in having to find the right version for each addon and re-do all the settings again. Now I just need to copy all the marcos and hopefully I am ready to go.

Thanks for the help and the effort in developing the patch file and setup guide. You guys are always quick on the solutions. Cheers!!

Johnny
