Locale file listing
I'm in the process of updating my sound file listing and have come across a little bit of a wrinkle.
I want to download the non-enUS locale files so I can double check if they have any sound files not in the enUS MPQ files.
I have download URLs for the enUS ones so I planned just to change the enUS part to whichever locale I needed to download (eg enUS -> deDE for the german locale)
Now I based which files needed to be downloaded from the URL you can construct from the wow.mfil file :
Now this is where it gets confusing. That file has a number of files listed that aren't currently used. EG OldWorld.MPQ that was causing patching issues a while ago.
So consequently the mfil file is listing files that I don't have in live.
So here is my request to you guys :
I need people to upload which locale they have installed as well as a listing of both the Data folder and the locale folder inside the Data folder.
When you open your Data folder you'll see a 4 character named folder that will be named one of the following :
deDE: German (Germany)
enGB: English (United Kingdom) - enGB clients return enUS
enUS: English (United States)
esES: Spanish (Spain)
esMX: Spanish (Mexico)
frFR: French (France)
koKR: Korean (Korea)
ptBR: Portuguese (Brazil)
ruRU: Russian (Russia) - UI AddOn
zhCN: Chinese (Simplified, PRC)
zhTW: Chinese (Traditional, Taiwan)
Don't worry about not being an addon author or anything. Just go to your wow folder , open the Data folder and take a screenshot or listing. Then open the 4 character locale folder and take a screenshot of that as well.
Once you have these screenshots (or pastebin listing) post URLs of where you've uploaded it here as well as what 4 character locale folder you found inside your Data folder.
tuba_man on Apple test labs : "I imagine a brushed-aluminum room with a floor made of keyboards, each one plugged into a different test box somewhere. Someone is tasked with tossing a box full of cats (all wearing turtlenecks) into this room. If none of the systems catch fire within 30 minutes, testing is complete. Someone else must remove the cats. All have iPods." (
