Interface Settings now server side?
Return to board index
I'm working on my new UI. I deleted the whole Interface, WTF, Fonts, Cache folders and started over again. At some point I wondered, that it still recognizes my chat-color settings, also what chat frames I have... After some time I realized that even the Interface settings such as showing nameplates or key bindings are still recognized... oO. Usually this would be nice, but for now I'd like to have a clean new (!) setup.
I deleted everything again, run the repair tool (reset interface & check files) three times and defragmented my disk. Still... all the settings are still there. Are they now saved on the server side or am I missing something?
EDIT1: I even searched through the registry now... there's nothing that points to the WoW config...
EDIT2: Even macros are recognized... oO
Macros definitely are server side now, as of 3.x+. As for interface settings, are you using Vista? I just recently renamed WTF to WTFD and had WoW recreate the WTF folder when I was troubleshooting an addon problem. All my settings were completely reset.
its not server side. heres what you do. delete those folders again and then double click wow.exe without using your desktop shortcut or whatever. you may have two wow installations or something, with shortcut going to a different one. best i can come up with. if you can successfully delete those files then theres no way wow is going to remember those settings.
Ok, at least the thing with the macros makes sense... but what use are the local files for then? .. They are still in the macros-cache.txt right?
As for the comment of tonys. I am certain that there is only 1 installation of WoW. I did a clean install of Win XP a few days ago especially for WoW (because I had long start times). I did SHIFT+delete the WTF & Interface folder... I don't say they addon settings were recognized but settings for the blizzuard UI were. For example: I don't show any nameplates over player or NPCs nor their names/guild/titles, chat-colors are recognized (whisper #ff0000, party #0000ff, ...), keybindings ('g' for the guild frame, ° for attack...) ...
What makes me really wondering is that a guy that uses my UI had the same settings without (!) copying the config.wtf file... oO...
It's all magic, isn't it? ;)
