Hai frands. This is a simple tutorial on how to get the WoD models to work for our lovely Cataclysm. I'm going to show it to y'all in a few simple steps.
Bear in mind that some models aren't implemented, others have bad hairstyles, so it isn't perfect!
These models were edited by KonataBG from this forum. All credit goes to her/him!
#1 Make sure your Cataclysm is fully downloaded.
It should be around 20GB (+- 1GB). You can torrent it fully, or you can just play it for a while. If you've played it for at least 2 months (on one installation), you're good to go!
#2 Download the patch and a special 'WoW.exe'
You have to download the patch with the new models and an edited executable of 'wow.exe'.
This is the link.
#3 Unzip the files
You should unzip the wow.exe and the SoundCache-patch-15595.mpq to a safe place.
#4 Backup the old files
In '%yourWowDirectory%\' rename 'wow.exe' to 'wow.exe.bak'.
In '%yourWowDirectory%\Data\Cache\' rename 'SoundCache-patch-15595.mpq' to 'SoundCache-patch-15595.mpq.bak'.
#5 Copy the files to their respective places.
Copy 'wow.exe' to '%yourWowDirectory%\' and copy 'SoundCache-patch-15595.mpq' to '%yourWowDirectory%\Data\Cache\'.
#6 Cross your fingers
Start the game!
