ANOTHER FIX IS AVAILABLE WHICH TRANSLATE THE GAME AT 100% http://wow-in-chinese.forum2jeux.com/t2122-cataclysm-4114250-fix-final-guide#19778

Ok so first of all all credits goes to the guys who made the tests and posted vital infos on the brainstorming thread, particularly ublack who provided a lot of informations and kind of saved the day.

I'm reposting the guide he wrote for the sake of visibility.

By using this almost everything is translated except for the items names (for now but you can the delocalize addon to get some translations).

1 - Install the enUS client (https://us.battle.net/account/downloads/WoW-4.0.0-Trial-enUS-Installer.exe) and let it fully update until it says Wow is up to date. (Critical updates must be finished also, so your cache files are 100% built)


2 - Download the chinese root files and extract it whenever you want (dont extract into your enUS installation you're probably going to need that install when the next update is released)

Reuploaded Chinese root files, You can rename the folder from World of Warcraft to whatever you want:
http://www.gamefront.com/files/20555344/wowcn-root-files-4.1.0.14250.zip


3 - Copy the Data folder from the enUS client to the folder that has the Chinese root files.

4 - Delete the 14333 files in the Data, enUS and Data\Cache folders.

5 - Rename the Data\enUS and the files within this folder from enUS to enCN

6 - Download this file, save in the enCN folder and rename to wow-update-enCN-13623.MPQ
http://ak.worldofwarcraft.com.edgesuite.net/wow-pod-retail/EU/12911.direct/Data/enUS/wow-update-enUS-13623.MPQ
(Dont modify this file, the game won't accept the file if you modify it. If you did you have to download it again or maybe repack the file)

7 - Copy the Chinese realmlist over to the enCN folder.

8 - Open the wow.mfil with notepad delete everything that's in it, save the file and make it read-only.

9 - Change to or add SET locale "enCN" to the WTF\config.wtf file

10 - Download both wow-update-base-14250.MPQ and wow-update-enCN-14250.MPQ or create them yourself (the enCN file needs to have the db2 files extracted from the chinese locale-enCN)

Data\wow-update-base-14250.MPQ
http://www.gamefront.com/files/20555340/wow-update-base-14250.MPQ

Data\enCN\wow-update-enCN-14250.MPQ
http://www.gamefront.com/files/20555341/wow-update-enCN-14250.MPQ


11 - Get either skeleton
http://bbs.ngacn.cc/read.php?tid=4410005&_fp=1&_ff=200
(edit Skeleton.ini, use skipsignature=1)

or the fixed .exe to launch the game.
http://www.gamefront.com/files/20550774/Wow_fixed%28mfil%2Csignaturefile%2Cpatchlimit%29.zip


That's it I think, you're going to have a full enUS client except for items names but you can use an addon for that. Now I'm trying to figure out how to make the game accept the enUS db2 files, but maybe someone should ask the guy who developed skeleton or the one that did the fixed exe if they can do something about it.

It's not practical having to copy the Data\Cache folder from the enUS client but it needs to be done.

Feel free to make any changes to this 'guide' and repost anywhere you want. You can also upload your own version of the files so people know they can trust it 100%.

This was posted a few minutes ago. It might be risky but if it works the client will be 100% in english and it's also a lot easier to do.

This is the same way i modify my german client and chinese client.
Both work 99% in German,with idelocalyzor to translate items.

I'm using WinXP and having a bit of trouble with this. I rem'd out the 14333 files for step 4 and I'm using the modified exe file downloaded from the link above; however, I'm getting a critical error on launching with the modified exe:

Fatal condition!

Program: N:\Cataclismic\Hybrid\World of Warcraft\Wow_hc.exe
ProcessID: 1480

Failed to open required archive Data/wow-update-base-14333.MPQ due to missing WoW.mfil

Debug Details:

[0] err=2 text=SFileOpenArchive - SFILE_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND - N:/Cataclismic/Hybrid/World of Warcraft/Data/wow-update-base-14333.MPQ
Storm Error Msg:The system cannot find the file specified.



WoWBuild: 14250

Any advice?


Edit: It hasn't been updated for a long time, but I used to use ItemNameTranslator to handle problems back in the dark ages: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/project-3315/pages/main-zh-cn/

Perhaps those with more coding experience would be able to import updated info?

You probably have a file in your data folder with "wow-update" and "14333" on its name, even if the extension isn't .MPQ

I'm old. I "REM"d it. I'll try just deleting it, thanks.

Is this the same as the post that says it's 100%? Or is this just an 'older' version of the fix?

This is a slightly different method from the one posted by AK48.

Guys do you think we should keep this post or move it in the trash? I'm worried it confuse people more than help them. AK's fix seems to work fine and is far less tricky to put in place.

OK, deleting the REM'd out files worked, thanks!

Unfortunately, we got hit with the mini-patch. What adjustments need to be made to get past that?

Bolo, let's keep this running if you guys have the patience to juggle both. AK-48 has a good solution, but I'm more comfortable with the old fashioned fix.

That's fine but then someone has to maintain and update this method.

I think it'd be best just to delete this thread.

This method works but someone would have to make a new set of custom MPQ files every time a patch is released. And since there's an easier way to translate the client I won't be posting a solution on how to translate the item names.

You need the updated launcher.exe

CN Launcher.exe v4.1.0.2514
http://www.gamefront.com/files/20559533/Launcher.rar
(People should label the files before uploading them)

Thanks guys!

I'll withdraw my comment. Keeping this band-aide working is going to be a headache for both the users and those who volunteer their work to keep us up and running. If I get banned, at least it will be in good company. Perhaps at some later date, if we're ever on the same patch cycle, a different way can be found.
