Fixed wow exe patch 7.3.0

Small update: Discussion thread of current situation has been created on the darknest patch forum found here

Greetings everyone,

As you know, a new patch for wow means a new exe is needed. However this time it seems that it might be some time before we see some new one comming. Please read the quote from JH16, and in general keep an eye out in his thread on Darknest. He is the one doing all the hard work for all of us that enjoy naughty mods for wow by providing us with the modified exe files to load our custom patches.

Original post by JH16:

Well, I think I’m a bearer of bad news, at least for the time being.

Due to the way Blizzard is going to start packing their exes, it renders disassembler programs useless to do anything with it. I would have to extract a specific file within the exe, do the edit then reinsert the file back into the exe. However at this time there isn’t any software out on the market able to do this (basically Blizzard is keeping their packing software in-house).

So until either Blizzard stops packing their exes in this manner or someone comes up with software that is able to properly extract and repack the newer exes. I won’t be able to do any edits, thus no custom data. I will though keep my eyes on OwnedCore for anything that could be useful, as should the community.

However, there might be another solution that hasn’t gotten much attention since I’ve been doing the patched exes, CASC archive manipulation. Maybe this should be the alternate way of introducing custom game data if the exes can’t be edited. I currently off-hand don’t know of any way to do this.

  • … Ok, I so don’t understand … how is what we’re doing with our character models in any way relateable to whatever the botters are doing? As I understand it, not only is the model change specifically designed not to interface with the collision system, it can’t.

  • It is the .exe or executable file. They are using the same launch platform. So Blizz has changed the functionality of WOW32 or WOW34.exe. So now the bots in the game can’t work. Since the patch works off the same executable now the patch won’t work. And that renders all sub files useless.

  • well its sad but true there must be a way around the issue hoping for the best 🙂

  • Ah german is such a wonderful Language i basicly told him that new wow.exe isnt coming anytime soon at least its impossible for now theyr protection is too good at the moment.

  • It appears like the problems been cracked. However the new mods in testing right now and it is uncertain if it will be detectable (get you banned) by bliz.

    • Yes, 7.3 has been cracked using a new launcher (Arctium WoW Client Launcher), but is still being tested whether Warden will flag it. The crack is available for those that want to try it out.

  • i know that and Florian how did you know i used it?.And also bad new it will only work on windows 10 FML i will have to update my windows 7 to 10.But piratebay is an option XD.

  • Are you going to post the fix? They’ve found one.

    • new fix only works on windows 10 no other window versions(not 7,8/8.1 or vista/xp).

    • The whole reason why I don’t post the fix that they’ve found is that right now we don’t know if warden detects it and if it does, if that’ll cause a ban on the account if it has been flagged by warden.

      As of right now I want to wait this one out to have thorough testing of it and seeing if any of the testers have been banned. It can take a while before the next banwave happens but the thing is that I don’t want to end up in a bad reputation of my site because of people being banned, so I simply want to wait this one out and not having people being mad at me, its also most safe to wait a bit yet to see if we’ll be alright by using it. It is clearly against the Terms of Use and has always been, by modifying the game client (or playing with it).

      • I appreciate that fact.Safety of accounts should always be first and like I say its stupid they even care about us.We the only ones who see the changes and if wow took time look at your clothing mods they would be offering jobs too those designers if smart.(the non nude changed clothing I love it fills a mog set out often that no where in wow you can do so otherwise without looking stupid.) Keep up the good work and anyone wanting nudity can goto imvu or second life lol til it all gets fixed.Or watch anime 😛

  • Lemme know when it’s safe for use not worth a ban.They should be paying you all for the creations and the clothes and saling it too wow players whom are 18+ like imvu second life etc. It’s innocent fun for those whom like rp.Personaly the clothes aren’t that skimpy and look very nice mixed in with our mogs I use raiding.

  • Esidien first of, thank you for really caring about the end user!
    Second don’t worry for a second, people will understand and have to live with it. Thanks to you and everyone behind the screen for the work you are doing for us. And as Candy mentioned already, it’s just some innocent fun. You’re not getting better on it (unless you count hormones as performance enhancement drugs xD)

    In short: “You guys are the best, keep doing that!”

  • Thanks for all the hard work it is much appreciated! I just wanted to check if there is any recent update? thanks so much again!!!

  • Esiden, How sad I am. When my friend first introduced me to WOW I was bored in 3 months as I figured out certain in game algorithms. Then he showed me the controversial nude patch. What a tantalizing testosterone driven train ride of T-N-A. I could not wait each day to see what outfit did what. Or the erotic expose art hunt. Oh my how many screen shots I had as searched feveroursly through the huts and houses. I hated waiting at the staging area of a dungeon or PVP battle. When I queued after your Erotic Awesomeness the time flew by and I i anticipated it more than the battles or dungeons.

    Now the mog puts us in this brain numbing fog, forever waiting your fascinating illustrating and titillating expose of eroticness.

  • Which file needs to be modified within the exe? I feel like expanding the search for a working program would be great.

  • Lets say I download and use the mod and then remove it after, can I still be banned?

    • If you use it, and their system can detect it just once, your account will be flagged. That said I don’t know for certain how safe this new method is, and therefore I can’t recommend it. It is total use at own risk.
