Hello there!

As a GM I often come across users asking for a more detailed guide on how to install patches and fixes, especially the two most important ones on Remorse, the "Druid "C" Fix", and the "Remorse Custom Patch"
So, here is a step by step guide on how to install the two files.


Installing WinRar

The two fixes are both .rar files, which means they need to be extracted to work properly. To extract these files, we use a program called WinRar. Before you download WinRar, you must figure out if your computer runs on a 64-bit system or a 32-bit one.

To do this, go to your control panel:


Then, go to "System and Security"


And then to "System"


Now you are going to check if your computer runs on a 32- or 64-bit system, mine is 64, as shown on the picture.


Time to download WinRar!

Now that you have established if you have a 32- or 64-bit system, you are going to download WinRar.

WinRar for a 64-bit system: http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR-64-bit/3000-2250_4-10965579.html

WinRar for a 32-bit system: http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR-32-bit/3000-2250_4-10007677.html

Click the green "Download Now" button<

Congratulations, you now have WinRar, just open it and you'll be ready to extract the two patches!

Downloading and installing the "Barber and Druid C Fix"

Alright, you're going to start by downloading the fix. You can find the download link to the fix here: http://eternal-wow.com/forum/download/file.php?id=68818

You should be able to click the file, and it should open in WinRar, like this:


You are going to extract this file to your WoW-directory. Many peoples WoW-directories are in different locations, an easy way to find it is by searching for "Wow.exe" and then right clicking it and choosing "Open File location" Like this:


Be aware, if you play normal WoW too, you want to make sure that you are going to the WoW folder that you play Eternal-WoW from. And now you simply drag the file from WinRar to your Wow-Directory, like this:


Congratulations! You have now installed the fix! From now on, this is the file you will open when you want to play WoW

The Remorse Custom Patch!

We are now going to install the remorse custom patch, it's actually very similar to the fix you just installed! Once again, we are going to download it, here is the link

For US versions of the client: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fgt89smfr4aregb/patch-4.rar

When you've downloaded it, you're going to open it with WinRar again, just like with the fix.


So, this patch is going to be extracted into the "Data Folder" in your WoW directory. So I hope you kept your WoW-directory open from installing the fix, because you're now going to go to the "Data" folder:


Once again, we are going to drag and drop the file from WinRar to the directory:


That's it!

You have now installed both the fix and the patch, woo! Remember, when you start WoW now, you're going to click the "WowDruidBarberPatch" file.

I hope this helped some of you confused souls.
