Patch 4.0.1 News

October 12, 2010 by staff 

Patch 4.0.1, Right, there will be a final patch, you can download tonight / tomorrow. Around 100 MB once it is downloaded, the update will start which could take some time depending on various factors systems (potentially more than one hour). There are many changes obviously, not the least of which is the gateway to the infrastructure of new streaming client. It is a very good idea to make sure you’re all ready to tinker, and then schedule an installation process of long duration. And of course there is then just wait for domains to be available. :)
The background downloader is designed to minimize the amount of time users spend during the patching process. This helps players obtain the patch in smaller pieces over time instead of having the player download a single large patch when it is released. As users play the game the background downloader is automatically launched at a random interval when there are new data available. When a patch is finally released, users already have most of new data and simply download a very small quantity to be able to run the patch.
Follow the steps below to activate your background downloader!
Open your World of Warcraft folder and locate Launcher.exe.
Windows XP: Right click your WoW shortcut, click “Properties” then click “Find Target”.
Windows Vista / 7: Right click your WoW shortcut, click “Properties” then click “Open File Location”
Mac: Right click your WoW shortcut and choose “Show in Finder” or show the original ”

PC, Mac

Double-click on “Launcher.exe” to open the program. Once loaded, click the Options button in the lower left corner.

Check the “Download after exiting World of Warcraft.” You can also select “Download playing World of Warcraft.” In doing so, your background download will be complete soon, but some users may experience latency when playing.
