Hello,

Yesterday I was having problems with my client, it was giving me an error message in Chinese. So I switched it back to American and updated. After that I moved it back to Chinese and I got the message: Unable to validate wow version and that perhaps some files were corrupt.

I decided to start over and get a new client, so I uninstalled and downloaded a new client from Blizzard. I did the usual steps of changing the config and the launcher files, and adding the new fonts. It was still connnecting to USA, I had to change the line:

Set locale "enUS" to "zhCN"

Now it connects to China but I'm getting the exact same error message as before as a launcher screen! I will post a screen shot after this if I can. I don't know what it says as it is in Chinese. My only idea is that the US version is at a slightly later patch and it won't work. I could try a manual install and build patches slowly but it should be the same.

Thanks

Hopefully that address works for the image, it does for me, and I cant get it to display here. Can anyone tell me what it says and for me?

Thanks

Check the stickied guide on tech forum. As far as I know the tips to prevent issues with new patches are working. And never execute launcher.exe unless you are sure China got updated.

I've uploaded my 5.0.4 exe files at this address http://www.gamefront.com/files/22244603/Wow+enUS+5.0.4.rar , see if helps. If it doesn't you gotta wait for China to update to 5.0.5

Thanks for the help but no, they didn't work. Tried to reload then gave the same Chinese message. Any other ideas or just wait until China updates? Which might be next Tuesday.

Thanks

Im on update 16048 while I guess China is still on 16016. That is my guess at the issue, don't speak Chinese though.

Maybe it'll work if he manually adds a "set patchlist" line in the Config.wtf and changes it to the CN one:

Code:
set patchlist zhCN.patch.battle.net:1119/patch


I got the same problem when US updated to 5.0.4 while China was still on 4.3.4.

Unfortunately no again, but thank you. I tried it with and without the portal line while using that patch line too and I get the same Chinese error message.

Thanks though. I don't know what to do other than wait. If i download another client it will be the same.

Hey man.. This is what I did and it worked...

Updated to 5.05..
Changed the config file with 'cn' bit as stated in this forum.
Got the 'incompatible version' error message like you..
downloaded the Wow.exe and launcher.exe from THIS THREAD (these would be the 5.04 ones or whatever)
replaced the 5.05 files in the Wow folder with the downloaded ones.
Ran game using WoW.exe (FROM THE WOW FOLDER).. don't use the desktop shortcut as it goes to the launcher and you'll get an error.


THE KEY POINT: DON'T USE THE LAUNCHER.. only use WOW.EXE
This worked for me.

Good luck..

Creepy Uncle Twisted.

Well I did what you said and now I'm getting fatal Wow-error messages, I'm trying to upload a screenshot but the forums is giving me a hard time. I might try with new config.

I got the same error msg. Tho it's good to hear it works for some. Now need to know what makes a difference. My client isn't fully streamed, what about you Padre.

It worked, and I can't really explain anything I did, I just reverted it all back and that time it worked. I'm back!

So the problem is solved by fully updating the client and then replacing the files with the 5.0.4 ones found here http://www.gamefront.com/files/22244603/Wow+enUS+5.0.4.rar

Thread locked, you can refer to the stickied guide for more infos.
