This was really great but since the "Before the Storm" patch and "The Burning Crusade" it doesn't work at all. I get a message that the World of Warcraft folder is invalid

Very cool program - Let's you explore all kinds of secret and under development areas without private servers, hacks, or questionable use of game mechanics.


Uncheck the "Use Patch" box to make the program load instantly (or without the 3-5 minute delay anyway). Honestly, I have no idea what the Blizzard patches do, seeing as how a patched game should already have the latest files. Perhaps it lets you use the program with just a patch and not the full game, but I haven't tested that so it remains just a theory.

In any case, it makes booting the program up a lot faster.

Very cool (that it works at all) but not a very friendly implementation.

Took 3 minutes to load (on a PowerMac G5 2Ghz) and shows no progress indication during this time. Crashed a couple times. Controls are also a bit odd and the UI almost isn't.

Still, it does work and you can see things that don't exist yet, like the Caverns of Time.

It takes a long time to load once you have clicked on the Start button (got the beachball too). But after a few minutes the viewer finally appears.

Would be nice if I could get it to launch. I locate WoW in my Applications folder, then I activate WoWmapview. It promply seizes up and I end up with a spinning beachball, and have to force quit.

This was the case on both an iMac G5 and a MacBook Pro.
