Not sure if this is the right place, but anyways...

I made this simple Byte Patcher in Visual Basic with some old but commonly known fixes for the 1.12 Client.
Also included "AutoLoot" which doesn't seem to be against ToS this way and also my own "fix" disabling the WDB/Cache generation.

It saves and loads your selected fixes upon the next time you open the Patcher.
You can basically apply or undo the fixes on demand/to your liking.

Image

apply 4GB Patch
Makes the game use up to 4GB of virtual memory instead of the designated 2GB.
(same functionality as the 4GB Patch from NTCore )

disable Cache generation
Basically hinders the game from creating a WDB folder and it's cache files within.
(simply changes the foldername to an "blank" name, and since windows can't create such folders the folder and the files within don't get generated at all)

increased Sound Channels
Raises the limit of the maximum useable Sound Channels from 12 to 256.
(ever wondered why some sound effects won't play when you're for e.g. in an crowded area, because all useable sound channels are occupied at that moment.)

improved Field of View
Increases the FoV value from the original ~1.57 to ~1.925 which is used in WotLK.
(same value as in the improved-fov.exe from Torta's Github)

AutoLoot w/o shift
It basically revereses the functionality of it, so you loot automatically without holding [shift] (or your designated key) and loot normally while holding it.


11 Bytes in total get changed with this Patcher.

DL Link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/hibffw7xx7n4d ... r.exe?dl=0

Make sure the Patcher is in your WoW folder. (like the picture above)
Make sure the game isn't running while using the Patcher. (the Patcher will throw an error and it won't work)
Make sure your WoW application is called WoW.exe.


Would be cool to see such additions in an custom Launcher for Turtle WoW. satisfied_turtle

I mean it could look sketchy since it's my first post on the forum, but it isn't harmful in anyway and you don't even need to give it admin privileges to run it.

I was using this for my own at first, but I figured I might share it so people don't need more than one .exe or backups for example when you're using the improved-fov exe from Torta and want to revert back later on.
Just with a click of a button you can do now so, without the need of extra backup files and no need to fiddle around wit Hex Editors if you wanna undo stuff when you didn't made an backup.

But since it's modifying another application, it could potentionally get flagged from your Anti Virus as malicious.

Edit: If there's questions or someone wants to see the source code itself, you can ping me on the turtle wow discord server.

Just checked the Binary of the 1.16 Patch there seems none of these changes made, readded the Download Link to the tool if anyone want's to use it :)

If anyone want's to do it them self via hex-editing:

Code: Select all

Large Address Aware Flag aka 4GB Patch: 0x126; 0F > 2F
Disable Cache: 0x455B38; 57, 44, 42 > 0, 0, 0
Improved FoV: 0x4089B4; DB, F, C9 > 66, 66, F6
Sound Channel limit: 0x435D38; 31, 32, 0 > 32, 35, 36
AutoLoot: 0xC1ECF; 74 > 75
If you wanna do it through Cheat Engine you need to add the base address wich is "0x40000" to the offset or simply put "wow.exe" infront of it, for example for improved FoV it's either 8089B4 or wow.exe+4089B4 but it isn't persistent and editing the binary itself makes the changes permanent.
Also no external Tools for hex-editing required, https://hexed.it/ works just fine.

Just a heads up it looks like this can cause issues with the updater not being able to update the client.

Got it recommended to me by 'Zaas' in the Turtle Discord #Addons.
Works like a charm, also recommended it to a friend, so cheers and bump for great threat. satisfied_turtle_head

How do you use this patcher? You open it and select the tweaks and then what? There is no "OK" or "Apply" button on it.

Edit: It works just by selecting the tweak and exiting. Edit 2: You have to relaunch this patcher after the selection.

I can confirm autoloot works. Appreciated.

i do not know, but you can always use this Addon: VanillaGraphicBoost for better grass visual and overall improves, ofc you need a decent cpu for it to work.
