[HELP] Is a Widescreen Loading screen possible?
« on: September 20, 2017, 04:30:20 pm »
I have set up a map to have a legion loading screen, but the problem is that the legion loading screen is in widescreen, and i was wondering if there was a way to have the 3.3.5 client to display a widescreen loading screen?

https://wowdev.wiki/DB/LoadingScreens Lists the last column as cata+, so I guess not.

Incorrect. Wide loading screens are supported on 3.3.5a. Go to LoadingScreens.dbc and set last field to 1. Note that wide version of your loading screen needs to have correct name. For example:
In DBC is:
3, Kalimdor, Interface\Glues\LoadingScreens\LoadScreenKalimdor.blp, 1

In actual MPQs are 2 BLPs:
Interface\Glues\LoadingScreens\LoadScreenKalimdor.blp
Interface\Glues\LoadingScreens\LoadScreenKalimdorWide.blp

So just make sure that naming in correct, in case it was changed later (afaik it was not).
