BlackLoginScreen

Version: 30000.1
by: Mera [More]

MAC Users: See noble8's comment here for a client crash workaround on MAC systems

Not an addon just 2 empty files (mainly useful for an addon author that could launch/leave the client several times in a day, the default one is cool for a few days then overdose..)(UI_MainMenu_Northrend.M2 & WotLK_main_title.mp3) to lighten the client, it completely removes the background and music at the login prompt, so you don't have the annoying drake spamming your screen and I notice increase in the application launch speed here because of my computer a bit old now

1) Extract the files in your Wow root folder usually c:\Program Files\World of Warcraft for XP and C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\ for Vista
2) Make sure the extractor also extracted them with the full directories it's important to respect the packed paths to nullify the default movie and music files

There are ways, all of them violate the ToS and can be detected by Blizz.

Apparently not.

Crashes the 3.2 PTR client. Maybe along the same lines as what happened with the 3.1 PTR where it'll work fine once it goes live, even so, any ideas on what causes it to happen? It'd be nice if it worked for the PTR client as well.

The exact error:

Code:
ERROR #0 (0x85100000) Assertion Failure
Program: C:\World of Warcraft Public Test\Wow.exe
File: .\AsyncFileRead.cpp
Line: 426
Expr: object->size
Great little hack btw. The default login screen is such a ridiculous resource hog for what it does, I'm amazed they continue to use it knowing the kind of hardware some people run on.

firstly thank you noble8 for sharing this. I will link to your post instead of releasing another build for now
Secondly I have just installed in late 3.1 and as chaud said this is perfectly working so I mark it 3.1 ready.

Mac Fix

As stated a zero byte file: UI_MainMenu_Northrend.M2, crashes on mac's.
How about making it not zero byte but say 4 byte?

I got it to work on my mac by doing the simplest of things;

1) Open up the file; UI_MainMenu_Northrend.M2, in text edit.
2) Typed on the first line, "nothing here", write anything.
3) Save the file
4) it is no longer 0 byte, now 4 byte. Yay Mac's.

Install it as normal \\wow\\interface\\GLUES\\MODELS\\.. etc

And there is your fix, who said mac's cant right click
