help joining a free WOW server.
« on: January 11, 2008, 08:00:45 AM »
Im trying to get onto a free server or whatever, done all the install shit for the game, got WoW control panel. when I open it I get this message.

anyway I go ahead and follow these directions.
Quote
Connecting to a private server
1. Run World of Warcraft Control Panel.exe.
2. Click "Options".
3. Select "Version Panel".
3. Click "Search", browse to where you installed World of Warcraft and select WoW.exe
4. In the drop-down box, select 1.4.0.
5. Click "Add information".
6. Click "Close Version Panel".
7. Select "Public List".
8. In the drop-down box that says "All Versions", select "1.4.0".
9. Find a server you'd like to connect to (I reccommend "Funtime Phsyiciatric Ward", where I play), and single left-click it.
10. Click the button "Create an Account" in the bottom left.
11. Fill out a username/password (You must use Internet Explorer for this).
12. Back in the server browser, click "Play".
I get to #4 and i see this.

anyone know whats up?

from what I remember, that server list control panel won't work very well, you want to look at something like this: http://www.wowstatus.net/serverlist.php and go through that list, look for one that meets your needs, you'll click on their link and follow through with the process, you'll probably have to join their forum to see the directions for gettin to their private server, but after all of that, you'll basically have a new shortcut to download and such, and bam you'll be on in the end! :D

I have no doubt that Adam is up to no good and shouldn't be helped. ;)

also, make sure that whatever server you choose to sign up with, you download the proper update that it asks for
