WoWLinuxTools are a set of tools for playing World of Warcraft on Linux.

Main Project is WoWLinuxSettings, which allows you to edit your Graphic/Sound Options for WoW (which is currently not possible in Wine), but also things like WoWUIAddOnSettings for installing/de/activating UI Modifications etc...

It is not yet finished, this is just a very early UI-preview :)

Please Tell me what you think so far and if/how i can improve it :)

I have been running WoW on Linux (suse 10 w/kde) for over a year now, and about 6 months ago a mod popped up on one of the modding sites that finally allowed us to change the video settings from the Video Settings menu. Which up till then was the only menu we couldn't touch from in game. All the other menus (sound, interfce, and keybindings) worked like any windows/mac system.

The mods name is AppltToForehead. You might check it out and see if it could be of any help to you in completing this wonderful project.

I hope to see a fully functional (or nearly) application soon, as I would definitly put it to use and let the other linux users know of it.

Kudoos to you!

I already know this mod and its not really complete... you cant change anything...

also you cant set the maximum distance higher then the ingame-slider, but the engine supports a higher value (if you PC does ;) )

there are a lot of settings you cant do ingame...

you cant set the sound-buffer size. or switch to opengl/d3d...

Ok, I was assuming your mod was something different then. I was referring to the abilities of the settings menus that Blizzard offers to Windows users. Of these, we have been unable to change the video settings without being kicked out of the game.

If your engine will allow us to do more than the default settings menus, then I applaud your effort and look forward to utilizing it. Let me know if I you need a beta tester. I'd be willing to assist.

Hello,

nice UI but which language you suppose for implementation?

Another thing: What is the file format of the WoW Settings File? XML? Or something custom?

I will do German and English (because im German)... if somebody provides me/us with translations i/we will include them.

Config.wtf is a simple text file ( WTF = WarcraftTextFile ). You can also edit in kate or any other text editor, if you want :)

Yes, I meant Programming Language ;-) I would suggest Python! Unfortunately I don't play WoW yet, so I cannot help you directly. But there are a lot of parsers for Python and String / File - Handling is very easy! Have a look and try it :-)

i dont know python... :D

but the tool is pretty simple, just read the values from the textfile and/or write new values :)

ok post something like an irc channel were we can meet to coordinate development, and maybe we could register a sourceforge space. This way we could use sourceforge's ressources (like svn ^^) for this project.
A project called WoWLinuxTools for examples were we could centralized all kind of projects like : addons installer, KWoWSettings of course and many other ideas that we could have !

Just an idea of course :)

I'll do the Spanish translation. But I'll don't have time until July.

¿This client is compatible with official WoW servers?
