what happens when patch comes? please read

Mac Technical Support
i changed some things like i found on here to do to avoid the input password everytime i opened launcher, what happens when the patch comes and i have to download it? will it still prompt me even tho i changed it to not ask for my password? because i have a mac and it would get stuck at initalizing. im just curious if ill have to change anything back or if it will still make me download it, which i think it will since its ran off the server.. just curious.
Or you can just download the patch files directly from here
1.0.4 Patch files:
http://ak.worldofwarcraft.com.edgesuite.net/d3-pod-retail/NA/8370.direct/Data_D3/PC/MPQs/base/d3-update-base-11327.MPQhttp://ak.worldofwarcraft.com.edgesuite.net/d3-pod-retail/NA/8370.direct/Data_D3/PC/MPQs/enUS/d3-update-enUS-11327.MPQhttp://ak.worldofwarcraft.com.edgesuite.net/d3-pod-retail/NA/8370.direct/Data_D3/PC/MPQs/OSX/d3-update-OSX-11327.MPQhttp://ak.worldofwarcraft.com.edgesuite.net/d3-pod-retail/NA/8370.direct/Updates/d3-0-11327-OSX-final.MPQ

put them in right folders (the folders they are in on downoad links (look at address immediately after 8370.direct/) are same as folder locations on hard drive. also note that I do not host these files, they are authentic blizzard download links for tomorrows patch (and they are up now too, if you even put them in your game folder right now in right locations, they will NOT interfere with game operation, the game is coded to just ignore patch data it's not supposed to use yet, if it's present and installed in this manner, these files won't be loaded even if present, unitl launcher is sent the go ahead to install them, upon which, it'll simply fire up, and go "oh hey, new patch, i can install these files now" then it skips download part and just installs the files. It will only need to contact patch server briefly to validate the patch files md5s
Note i don't have the non english link for locals other then that cause i didn't research it, although i bet you could easily find then renaming enUS folder and enUS file name to whatever local you want to download instead

you can always find the latest blizzard download links for MoP beta or D3 here

i'll put WoW live links on it for 5.0.4 live patch as well when it goes live.

That was just a temporary workaround for a launcher issue, if you open the game normally and enter your information, it should resolve that issue.
awesome. i just wasnt sure. but thank you. thats a load off my back
I'm still struck at the initializing after i keyed in my information.

How should i go about this matter
Hi guys,
I'm having the same problem. I tried the solution above but nothing happened.

What else can I do?
Try deleting the launcher tools and force it to reupdate. When you get prompted for the password for your admin account, please enter it and see if it helps.

Deleting the Battle.net
    1. Navigate to Macintosh HD/Users/Shared
    2. Delete the Battle.net folder
    3. Launch the Diablo III Launcher
