Went ahead and just updated the logo to say Cataclysm, if you don't want it and want to display the Wrath logo for now, just delete the "\World of Warcraft\Interface\Glues\Common\Glues-WoW-WotLKLogo.blp" file.

Keep the Cata logo or no?

OMG I would love you forever if you did it and just PM'd me personally.

It's drove me nuts for far tooo long! Of everything they do, the simplest thing they have yet to implement. Lord knows we have ALL bitched time and time again in every forum we can find.

I plan to bring this up at the Dev talk at BlizzCon *GRIN*

I'm not so bothered by them not implementing it what bothers me is that, they allow you to customize everything, except the login part of the game easily. Why? No reason I can think of, the game self generates from a virtual library if no override is found, so why disable the overrides?

It's such a minor change, but I agree that it does look aesthetically better.

Now, get to work on that sortable character list.

It drives me up the wall that I can sort them. Heh.

You realize he changes the images and not any lua/xml files. Changing those is impossible because they are being signed using a ".sig" file, any changing of the GlueXML files (any FrameXML/Addons for that mater) will be blocked, the game won't load them at all.

If you wish to have a sort function you would have to crack the generation of the .sig file (someone did that but stopped around tbc). Point is if you can sign the edited file you can fool the game to load your file. Again, it's a huge "if" :P and ofc it's against TOU

Basically what vlad said. I am able to get the game to load sometimes with different things.

But overwriting the XML/lua is getting harder and harder thanks to Blizzard. Theres a few work arounds that I don't understand why they are working but work and iv'e just been trying to figure out why the work before I release them and violate a rule I'm not aware of.

(No cracking or editing of the .mpq files)

GlueXML has access to far more powerful (and abusable) API functions, and it would probably take Blizzard a lot of effort to secure that code. Off the top of my head, the login screen has access to account details and a function to open a URL in your browser. Even if the URL function was protected and overrides were treated as insecure addon code, I doubt Blizzard would want to risk that combination.
