HOWTO: Disable Loading Screen Tips

UI and Macro
As a long-time player, the Loading Screen Tips aren't something I'm interested in seeing every time I log in or change characters.

It appears that with Mists of Pandaria, we've lost the checkbox to disable the Tips. If you had them disabled previously, they will stay that way.. but if you reinstall WoW or delete your game settings, you'll need to manually disable them.

Simply open <WoW folder>\WTF\ and add this line to the bottom:

SET showGameTips "0"

(Make sure WoW isn't running when you make this change, as it will be overwritten when the game exits.)
Thanks a million, it works!
Did they really disable this from working in today's patch? It's not working for me anymore. =/

Yeah, it's not that old and the thread is completely relevant. Anyway, same issue here.
