WoW 7.3.0 will be out on August 30, save your 7.2.5 folder !

Hi all,

Blizzard announced that 7.3.0 will be out next wednesday.

As they have made additional modification (particles, creatures, etc.) that are not yet supported within current alpha release, I recommend to save your exisiting 7.2.5 folder.

All you have to do is :
- create a root folder for backup, named BACKUP_ROOT after (ie. c:\wow_7.2.5_backup)
- copy Data\ folder from your WoW installation in BACKUP_FOLDER
- copy .build.info file from your WoW installation in BACKUP_FOLDER

To use this folder in WoW Model Viewer, simply go to Options > Settings, and set Game folder to BACKUP_FOLDER\Data, WoW Model Viewer will work as of today on 7.2.5
If you like this software, feel free to donate : EURO or USD. Thanks !

This seems like a great way to use the modelviewer, but i keep getting an error message, "Fatal Error: Could not load your World of Warcraft Data folder (error 3)." When using stable version of modelviewer. When i use unstable version of Modelviewer i get (Error 2). Any ideas on how to fix this?

Apparently I missed this. I haven't been as active in the WMV lately. But I want to find out if there is a way to get 7.2.5 still in English, an archive somewhere perhaps pls? Thanks. :-)

I notice on 7.3.5 that when I try to export the .OBJ models from WMV and try to save as a .DAE file in Blender, it is now not possible to correctly re-texture the models, so Blizzard has changed something, I definitely need an older pre 7.3 release. I only use this for personal projects but I'm hoping I can still find a pre 7.3 version in English. -- Unless a version is in the works to address these kinds of texturing and rendering issues for 7.3.5's WMV viewer?
