Hi there,

First off, Gratz to having made 1.12.3 work. Silly security update was a pain.
Second, the whole special procedure wont be necessary when 2.0 goes live:
All the pathed files of 1.12.3 are included in the patch MPQ files from 2.0
So we can go back to simple patching and firing up the game.

I could find the standart patch prcedure you guys use for playing ANY wow in china (before 1.12.3) . Maybe i am silly.

So, please post a link so i can see that. thx.

Adding something...
From your screenshots i can take that you guys all dont see chinese characters when playing in China.
Player names in chinese dont appear, chinese chat dont appear, etc..... feels kind of boring. easy workaround for this exist.
also i dont know if you WANT to type in chinese, but thats easy as well.
i didn't see it in the forums, so if there is interest, i will post our patch procedure (2 minutes + 1 reboot).
works for all versions except 1.12.3 which was a china only release, but you guy's patch can be applied on that procedure as well.

hope to contribute more soon.
I have a whole file list with the most common 124 characters (chiense) in the game, pinyin and translation. Keep that file, and you should be able to communicate freely with chinese peeps in game, + being able to raid with them (did that for zarda... ^^ )

Hi Naklin,

I'm one of those guys who play with a French version but not able to write or read Chinese, so I'm really waiting a detailed procedure to able to change that.

Even if my Chinese level is not so high but at least I will be able to know who is sending me messages and hope to see something else than [] in my friends list Sad

It's hidden in Not FAQ But Almost / Writting Hanzi Ingame Very Happy
But it's based on an addon, so, if you have another way to do it, feel free to explain ^^

P.S: Some links in this topic must be broken now, but the way to do it is explained, so...

thats what i meant... you guys need add-ons, licensed software and i dont know what, when all you need to do is change one setting in windows and reboot...
simple as that.....
so, now i know. i will post the tutorial here.
its a 12 click operation.... ^^

I found this forum today, when I was longing for WoW and decided to try playing on the Chinese servers. I searched Google hoping to find a site like this Smile

I got a little confused reading various topics here, now I don't know whether a wokring solution has been found or not...

so, can I use the English client on English Windows modified so that I would be able to see the descriptions of items, quests etc. in English and still read and type in Chinese at the same time (just as those screenshots posted around here somewhere)? And what about the patching?

Or should I just quit being lazy and install the full-fledged Chinese version, which could also help me improve my Chinese language skills? But I am afraid won't be able to understand all those dialogues, quests, item descriptions... with my knowledge of mere 2500+- characters (and I expect to encounter quite a lot of "weird" vocabulary... just as in all other games)

Hi Sarevok

Yes it was working until............Blizzard released the 2.01 Patch in preparation for TBC. It is still possible with some tricks but if you can read and write Chinese give the chinese Version a try as i believe most of us also play and it is easier to do.

Just wait a while until the situation is clear, if China release the same update again as Europe otherwise I believe my knowledge of tweaking is over. Thats the cold trouth atm. Feel free to join on the MaDuoLan realm I also just joined Smile

Hi Sarevok !

Like stItCh said that basic solution of installing the english client and update it to the last and only change the realmlist file was working until the 2.0.1 update for the Burning Croisade preparation but now we've found another method to play and here is the link on the forum :

http://wow-in-chinese.forum2jeux.com/viewtopic.forum?t=72


you'll have all the information to patch your client to play english on the chinese servers
