Great work, looks good. It seems to work on most of my characters, however, when in the character selection screen I select my main (lvl 60 Tauren Hunter) the game crashes with a "critical error" -report. Any ideas?

Edit 1: Seems like the problem was the name of the MPQ. I renamed it from patch-W.MPQ into patch-1.MPQ and it seems to work now.

Edit 2: Renaming the file to patch-1.MPQ messed up the mod, male gnome, nelf and UD faces were horribly deformed. Now that I changed it back to patch-W.MPQ my main character does not crash the game anymore and it seems to work for now.

Edit 3: I just wanted to comment on the new musics added. It's a feature I've been looking for years with no results and finally it's true. Can't thank you enough.

Does your Tauren use the Spirit Walker skin, by any chance? I've been noticing some issues with that.

No, he doesn't, he's not customized at all. However the mod seems to work flawlessly now, so I guess the renaming did the trick.

Renaming the patch is not advisable, as this causes problems with load order and it will not at all work properly if it's loaded before Turtle patches. Further, renaming it to patch-1 means that even the official vanilla patch-2 overwrites it, so you might as well just delete the file and not use it at all.

If you could try temporarily removing the patch, unequipping everything on your Tauren, and reapplying the patch, I might be able to narrow down if it's character model related or item related.

Greetings and thanks for your great work! Just a (perhaps stupid) question: how do those patches affect performance?

The only place I've seen any performance hit is during rain in Teldrassil, and even then it only drops from 60+ FPS to I'd say roughly 40+ depending on system.

If you read my post through, you would know that this problem no longer exists, I cannot recreate it anymore. However if it does appear again, I will let you know.

Recent interest has inspired me to take a look at improving patch-Y again (the goblin and high elf voice patch) to see if I can't get emotes working. I've got some new tools and potentially a second set of eyes to help get this patch fully working, hopefully.

Glad to hear! :D also btw it seems a fix to some errors is getting the 4gb patch for the exe as i seem to not be getting any errors for now.

The fatal error problem is back, with the same character. I tried virus scans and Windows Update, but they didn't work. Also tried removing all the addons and trying it in a separate installation of TWow in another drive, but no effect.

UPDATE: patch-Y.MPQ will receive no further updates. After some tinkering, I discovered that the emotes cannot be enabled by client modifications alone and require things serverside. Thus it would have to be officially supported by staff. I hope that people will continue to enjoy it in its current state!

Hello, when you enter the game with the W patch, errors _1, _2 appear, and after loading it crashes with errors.

It is worth noting that these errors occurred after the patch update, before that everything worked fine

Switching the vertex animation shader setting fixed the issue. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Still looking for a talented artist willing to make new HD assets. I may need some existing assets redone due to some file corruption a la black Night Elf hairs.

Great work so far! Any plans on updating the Druid forms too? A separate patch with just the forms would be much appreciated. Hope you find some more talented people who can keep this updated.

The Druid forms are already updated, unless you mean the custom Druid form skins Turtle uses. That will require an artist.

So I have a weird bug with mine, not gamebreaking but I can't visually sheath/unsheath my weapons without unequipping them or by attacking something. Additionally, and this is a VERY minor error (assuming its even an error) but Magma Totem, Frost Resist, and Searing Totem have the spiky orc model, but fire nova only has the tauren looking one

Also also, it seems my cast bar has been moved to the very edge of my hotbar? (just above it, instead of a bit higher) I don't use UI mods and this is the only new thing I've downloaded recently
