Fatal Error: Could not find any locale from your World of Warcraft folder

Post by Cestrelle » Sat Mar 24, 2018 6:11 pm

Hello everybody,

I currently play WoW Legion Version 7.1.5 (23420), however I wasn´t entirely sure which Version of the WMV is the corresponding one for my game, so I tried out all available versions between WoD 0.8.5 (from 2016) and the 0.9.0.beta8 (from 2018). The result was unfortunately always the same, no matter if installed via the default path or manually: Fatal Error: Could not find any locale from your World of Warcraft Folder

I did some research in the data folders and figured out, that my game lacks a file called ".build.info". Manually creating an empty ".build.info"-file leads to another error due to the corresponding content missing. But at least the file is found and opened by the System - even if it´s empty :)
Apparently this missing file has no influence on the game itself. It works just fine without any deficiancies.

The following log is taken from the 0.9.0.beta8 Version (without the manually created ".build.info"-file):

Is it possible to somehow get access to this file-info?
Thanks in advance for your support!

at the bottom it says "FirestormLegion" im guessing you are running a private server client which might have something to do with your problem. Download retail WoW, you can make an account free trial

Hello again,

I followed your advice and downloaded the retail WoW currently available from Blizzard and it worked.
Looks like I will have to keep two games on my PC right now - or at least save the data folders.

Thanks a lot for the quick reply!

Fatal Error: Could not load your World of Warcraft Data folder (error 2)

Post by Cestrelle » Sun Mar 25, 2018 4:14 pm

Update: When I first loaded my new WoW it all appeared to be working just fine, however some models weren´t shown at all or lacked texture. A few minutes later the WMV crashed. When I tried to restart it gave me the following message: Fatal Error: Could not load your World of Warcraft Data folder (error 2)
