WoW Launcher PLUS
Version: 0.3.1
by: Bl4ckSh33p [More]
Important Note: Many features like deleting cache files for rare mob scanner-addons or creating backups of your settings are still missing in the Battle.net Launcher. If you still like WoW Launcher PLUS and want an updated version for Warlords of Draenor let me know, please. Just write a comment.


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

Thumbs up WoW 64 Bit support coming with next update

I believe the new 64 Bit WoW Client is the reason for this request. It will be added with the next update.

is 64 bit really an issue here O_o
The concept i am getting from this program is that it will be able to launch wow (or at least relavent wow launcher), Have links to websites, show server status, & deletion of a creature cache file.

I don't really see why there would be a need for a 32bit & 64bit version of this program. IMO (as in 2 versions of the program)

downloaded and installed and it a nice interface. Can't wait to see when i can auto delete that creature cache file and be able to set the watched realm to my own realm or be able to have a list of realms watched.

Any hoot marked this as a favorite so i can keep an eye on it's progress. ^_^

Question concerns of the addon

I want to try this addon but my one concern is that if this addon is clean.
When i say clean i mean that there is no key logger or any junk like that.

If i see people start to give this the thumbs up & if i see the admins give this program a thumbs up then sure i will gladly install this and run with it.

just trying to be safe but so far sounds like a dream come true information wise.
