in game wow settings

3 posts in this topic

For Pwnboxer, I have 2 WoW directories:

 

#1   Has graphics set to HIGH.  This is my main account.

 

#2   Has everything set to LOW.  These are my alt accounts.

 

You can use 1 WoW account by using the graphics option inside Pwnboxer.  Set main to high, alts to LOW.  But beforehand, go into WoW without pwnboxer and set all settings to LOW.

 

I have Pwnboxer set up to have the main 100/100 for FPS min/max, and for the alts I have it set to 20/20 FPS with sound disabled.

 

 

Depending on your CPU, you might want to bind your main game to 1/2 of your CPUs, and have your ALTs all share the other 1/2 CPUs (set inside Pwnboxer).

 

For Dimmdrive, it depends on what you're doing and where you're leveling.  Essentially, these are the important areas:  WTF folder, and inside the data folder, these MPQs:  world, texture, model, interface, itemtexture  and then the expansions of what you're doing, based on how much RAM you have for Dimmdrive available.

 

That's it!

With IS Boxer I made a pair of mapped keys.

One was 'High' Settings.

The other was 'Low' Settings.

 

I attached both to my Window Swap mapped key.

With High Settings running for my Window: Current.

And Low Settings running for my Window: All Without Current.

 

Then, no matter what window/slot/character I am on, that character has the benefits of higher graphics.

And each of the other characters has lower graphics to reduce the strain on the system.
