Game Client

These step by step instructions will lead you through the whole registration and installation process. Dig through your old boxes and get your WoW vanilla disks and install the game! If you already have a WoW game client version 1.12.1 or 1.12.2 you need to adjust the realmlist entry to connect to our game server. Follow the following steps:

  • There is a file in your WoW folder named that might need to be edited.
  • Either drag the file onto your desktop and drop it back after editing or open the as an admin. You can do that by clicking Start, All Programs, right-click the Notepad program and Run as Administrator. Click File -> Open in Notepad and navigate to your World of Warcraft folder. Change the viewed files dropdown (above the Open button) from Text Documents (*.txt) to All Files (*.*). This will let you open the realmlist in Notepad.
  • Once you have opened the, delete everything out of the file and replace it with the following: set realmlist

If you're done with those steps you should move on to the account section.
