Okay here is an emulator installation guide for WOW! YAY
The Emulator is still very buggy but is improving all the time (i recommend it for having fun like spawning some onyxias in stormwind ^^, or chilling with some legendary items on level 60 after 10 mins playtime...)


First of all the Current Emulator is based on Game Version 1.4.2 and will only work with this version
Therefore you gotta download the following patches when ugrading from 1.0 retail
and upgrade your game

You can download all patches you need at
If you own another language version like GB download for example

When you are done upgrading download the server emulator () and install it
1. Click the ... below W*W Rooted Directory.

2. Locate your W*W directory and make sure you open the main W*W folder and not just Program Files then click Select.

3. Click Create then Click Run.

4. Then you come to another screen with the completion dialouge, uncheck all of the boxes except Account Creator and IpConfig.

5. When the account creator opens you get an error, ignore it. Create an account with the settings you like and close it.

6. Then switch over to Ip-Configurator leave the Server Name as it is and for Server Rules select what you'd like, PvE for Players vs Everyone or PvP for Players vs Players

7. For the following if you want to host for others choose step 7a or for only this computer choose step 7b.

7a. Choose the IP box for all of the sections: Http host, Rs host, Ws host and click the globe next to them all for your IP. This works for both LAN and for External Connections from the internet, the difference is is what you enter in the example.txt which I will explain later on.

7b. Choose the Host Name box for all of the sections: Http host, Rs host, Ws host and leave the name localhost.

8. Set the remainder of the settings as you'd like, a reccomendation is under game put autosave time to 30 minutes and just .save before you exit the game so it saves. Then close the Ip-Config

9. Open Example.txt and do the following.

10. For server_name= put it as you wish and leave the rest of the settings unchanged.

11. The following are the settings for ws_host= and if you want the server for just LAN read 11a if you want it for Public internet read 11b if you want it for just this computer read 11c.

11a. Set the IP the globe on IP-Config chose without the /

11b. Go to and put the IP you find there or a dns you created using or

11c. Set the IP to

12. Close example.txt and save then run keymaker.exe and for the input file type example.txt then press enter and close it.

13. Run w*wemu.exe if you don't want to be able to minimize it to the system tray or run TrayW*Wemu.exe if you want to be able to minimize to the system tray.

14. Go to your W*W folder and open R*alml* with notepad and change the realmlist to the ip you entered in your example.txt file.

This guide is from the official forums of the emu edited by me...
I had to cut out the documentary screens on installation (if you need them because you don't get it visit the emu forum [find url in emu])
