Sending Patches To The Client Through The Wow Application


Recommended Posts



With Schlumpf's guidance I was able to successfully implement a way to send custom patches to the client through WoW rather than a custom launcher.


The implications for this are quite clear. It allows one to:


  • Require the latest patch to login.
  • Send incremental patches.
  • Send any data.
I wrote up a guide to do this which Schlumpf has heavily edited to create a, hopefully, useful publication.

You will have to edit the binary to allow unsigned patches: http://modcraft.superparanoid.de/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=1829


This is my code changes for a more recent TrinityCore version in order to get patching to work: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1102355/Patching-Trinity.patch
