Holy Moly Guacamole I am stoked to see this! Thank you so much @leeviathan!!
I have been reborn to want to "Play" (rather than code ElvUI backport all the time) TBC again now with this final piece of the missing puzzle. Thank you thank you!

PS: This is or isn't compatible with Bambay's mods?

Thank you so much for this Mod :) made my BC experience so much more enjoyable!
I seem to have FPS drops/ Stutters sometimes with this mod, cant figure out when it happens seems random but pretty often.
If i remove the mod all is fine (this is the only mod i'm using).

running 2.4.3 BC, Tauren Female character.

did anyone else report similar problems?

thank you again for your Mod <3 love it

oh and im getting like 120 FPS baseline in BC so i dont think/hope its not a hardware issue. i'm also running Legion fine on this PC

I seem to have FPS drops/ Stutters sometimes with this mod, cant figure out when it happens seems random but pretty often.

Thanks for the report, I'll have to investigate. I had similar issues myself, but figured it was because my computer is very old and stuttery anyway.

UPDATE: Something about the BC client itself seems to not jive with any patched-in character model (works fine with creature models). The stuttering thing even happens with the original low-poly character models ported down from WotLK or up from Classic, or even just switching M2s from the very same client; just renaming DraeneiFemale.m2 to BloodElfMale.m2 and placing it in the Character/BloodElf/Male/ directory causes the same hiccup to occur when the client loads BloodElfMale.m2. In fact, changing even 1-bit of superficial information in the hex code of any patched-in character .M2 file will cause the issue. Maybe it's a residual effect from anti-cheat mechanics?

UPDATE 2: Of course I'd figure out a solution 10 minutes after posting questions in every forum I could find. My solution, or hacky work-around, was to change the location of the character models from "Character\..." to "Creature\..." and update the CreatureModelData.DBC file to reflect this.

Thank you leeviathan :) I have played with the updated Patch for about a week and had no issues with stutter at all! works beautifully <3

I made a "race swap" based on your Patch and following this guide (got no experience with this stuff what so ever, im a 3d artist and not at all good with tecnical stuff.) https://www.ownedcore.com/forums/world-of-warcraft/world-of-warcraft-model-editing/wow-me-tools-guides/39999-guide-changing-only-player-characters.html

 Everything is still running and looking great after my "swap" :) super happy with my game!

have a great day and thank you again for your work

May I ask why you need WoWMe to run those? Cant client read the MPQ file as in vanilla or WotLK ?

Others have done it, but I don't know how to make the client read custom patches without WoWMe in TBC.
