[RELEASE] MoP/Cata/LK Item Gear Set For TBC 2.4.3
« on: April 14, 2015, 07:00:22 am »
Not all the weapon/helmet/shoulder models work and may crash the game client. Best to do a preview rather than trying to equip it on your character., I've not tested everything yet because there's a few thousand new dispalys and that'd take too long for one man to do alone.

So I'm sharing this for people that may want new displays in their TBC game but also for some people to help me find problematic m2 files.

Download Link:
http://mmfilez.tk/tbc_item_3xto548/NewI ... distro.rar


^ direct link, use a Download Manager like Flashget ( http://www.flashget.com/index_en.html ) to download it.
My internet kept disconnecting so I couldn't upload it to somewhere else like mega, so I ended up torrenting it to the vps instead.

For anyone that would like a copy of my Cata/MoP M2 to TBC converter, go here:



Instructions on how to use the files in this Archive:
1.) Put the MPQ file into your Data folder where your common.MPQ and patch.MPQ's reside.
2.) Place the WowMe.exe into the folder where your Wow.exe reside, you will need to use this to load the patch without being met with a file corruption error.
3.) The SQL File is to be ran inside of your World Database where your Item_Template resides, Make sure you execute the script with "Abort on Error" disabled, or whatever it may be called in your SQL DB Manager of choice, because there's a good chance I have a duplicate in the SQL file somewhere.
4.) Place the Item.dbc and ItemDisplayInfo.dbc files into your Emulator Core's dbc folder, MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR ORIGINAL FILES!!!, This needed to be done on OregonCore, I do not know if it's required for other Emulators.
5.) After you've done all of that, restart your World/Realm server and launch the WowMe.exe to go into the game. from within you should be able to add yourself items using the normal Retail Item Id's of a given Item, Like my favorite sword, Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps, ID#77191

--Have Fun!!

Contact me via Twitter if you have any questions, Twitter's like email to me, I check it very frequently.

Just wanted to say thanks so much for this. I don't have the time right now to watch any of your tutorials, but once summer comes, hopefully I'll try some of these things on my own. Your works are amamzing. If you still plan on playing around with the BC client, you could try porting Northend to BC (or even Vanilla). Would be amazing to see WOTLK Burning Crusade or Vanilla style.

Thanks for dropping by man!, hope my videos don't confuse you too much since my methods aren't for everyone.  At the moment I'm taking a break from TBC and earlier porting to take care of other business. I've not got a clue where to download a complete 1.12 client, found a lot of things where you have to update to 1.12 but that bit makes me lose interest in bothering with it.

No, The M2 file type from TBC is (no sarcasm here) Drastically different from the way how M2 files are set up in LK and onwards.  Kind of a big reason why there has been so little things on new objects down porting to TBC. I had to make my own converter to do this and it's not perfect, not everything works, but it did take me about 9-10 days to put together, worked on it off and on, released conversion script came out to be around 800 Macro Commands.

That said, for LK there are already tools and documentation for doing what you want, why not take the time to look into that stuff? start with simple m2 conversions, learn how to make your own dbc files and how to get that rolling.  I spent 10 days on the above Release with having to remake a couple of things from complete scratch, what says you can't spend 10 days yourself doing research and just doing something for yourself? Especially there are already so many tools and guides related to what you want.

Be patient with yourself, everyone wants everything RIGHT NOW.... but it doesn't work that way most of the time, especially if you are new to it, you gotta take it one step at a time, so just do one item first, then try another, then another, and after you get tired of doing them one by one, you will get desperate and actually look for or make a method for doing a whole lot at once instead.  Creativity usually comes when desperation is all that's left :D

Usually I'd say I'd make a hint video on it but said hint video would probably be a few hours long and it's not something I wish to do again anytime soon.

Your videos are great and to anyone that wants to learn, if they have the wish to learn (and the right mindset) they will , no matter how much they understand what you're doing in your videos. Plus, you can pause the videos  every minute and slowly watch what is happening and learn that way too.  I remember once giving you a link to a 1.12.1 full zipped client from here : https://drive.google.com/uc?id=0ByPTNLd ... t=download this link is actually from a private server, I'll leave their ''downloads'' page too in case you are wondering : https://valkyrie-wow.org/start . The first link is the one I linked you a moment ago. Anyway, thanks for replying, make sure you get plenty of rest cause I heard from your videos how much time consuming all of this is.  If you ever consider toying around with it, either combining all wow continents into previous versions of wow or improving the old graphics of wow by adding new wmos and .m2s  and textures from newer versions, that'd be great. That's something I'll try to do this summer by myself.

I managed to port some weapon models to vanilla using a tbc > vanilla tool but wasn't able to get textures working.

Yeah XD my method for re-creating a bc client m2 file using data from the Cata>LK m2/skin files isn't proper. Conversion is the Wrong term here since I'm not merely switching off and on some hex bytes, it pretty much takes various bits and pieces of data from the source M2 and Skin file and rearranging them to re-create a file that passes under the 243 client......for the most part XD... (minus thousands of crashes hahahaha)

:lol: I hadn't thought about trying to make a file that would be suitable for other people's tools to read out heh.... The file's aren't proper by any means but it met the end goal well enough for the most part XD.

Download link is broken, and there seem to be nothing else like this available out there.
Does anyone still have it and could re-upload?
