WoW Launcher PLUS
Version: 0.3.1
by: Bl4ckSh33p [More]
WoW Launcher PLUS (WoWL+) is the successor of "WoW Manager". Its purpose is to replace the default WoW Launcher and give you some additional features.

Now supports 32- and 64-Bit Live- and PTR-Clients!

Current features:
- View the latest News from the original Launcher or use a custom Homepage
- Open your Guildpage with a single click
- Create backups of your important WoW related files
- Launch your favorite Voice Chat Application with a single click
- Check the Status of your favorite WoW Realms from five regions
- Delete cache files on startup (useful for addons which track rare mobs via cachefiles)
- Launch WoW immediately after launching WoWL+
Additional "Tools" in the Menu on top:
- Visit popular WoW Websites (more to come!)
- Launch the original Launcher and the Repair Tool

Installation:
Just download the .zip file and extract it into a new folder. To launch WoWL+ doubleclick on WoWL+.exe or create a new shortcut for it.
IMPORTANT NOTE: WoWL+ does not change any WoW Files. It is a separate application.

Updating from a previous version:
Just unzip the new file in the same folder and overwrite all files. All settings (stored in "Settings.ini") should be preserved.

Known Issues:
- None

Feedback, Suggestions and Bug Reports:
- WoWL+ on Facebook (get the latest news and updates here)
- Feedback Thread
- Suggest a new Feature
- Report a Bug

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since AMS (the app I use to create WoWL+ and my other tools) is no longer available for free I need to get the full version to continue development. If you like WoWL+ or my other tools you can help me with a small donation via Pledgie. Every Donation is very much appreciated!

Re: done?

Hi. It's not "done" completely. But the new Blizzard Launcher is a nice piece of software.
Maybe I can modify/add some things for Warlods of Draenor. Suggestions and feature requests are always welcome.

My launcher can't access the WoW Update Servers but if you launch WoW and a patch is needed it will automatically start the download. So you won't miss it when you use WoWL+.

Error from Blizzard Newspage

Thanks for the report.
The error is not from WoW Launcher PLUS itself. I have never heard of serving-sys or used it. It is caused by the Launcher Newspage from Blizzard.
I can't fix it right now but I will take a look at it and try to fix it soon.

Like this overall, especially for the creature cache nuking.

Thank you for your suggestions! I did not have much time to work on it lately because I am moving to another town next month. But I will continue to work on it soon!

Sadly, IndigoRose discontinued the free "Personal Edition" of the app I use to create WoWL+. I can't get the latest update with some bugfixes for the runtime until I mange to collect about 300 US$ / ~ 250 to buy it.

Glad you like it.
I will consider this for the next big update. But I did not have much time to work on new features lately. I hope I can start to work on the next update soon.
