All of the following are known issues that we are hope to have corrected in a future patch:
- Starting more than 1 wow.exe simultaneously will cause the applications to deadlock
- If you are multi-boxing, do not use a batch file or other method to launch multiple game clients at once
- Resizing the game client when run in a window can cause bodies of water to not display
- Using voice chat, recording a voice sample then immediately changing the Microphone setting can cause a crash
Additional known issues:
- Error 132 when attempting to start the game using WoW.exe
- There is no way to disable Full Screen Glow via the Video Options menu
- This is a permanent change
- You can disable this feature using an in-game console command and restarting the game
- /console ffxGlow 0
- Sound effects may be delayed from their actions. A lot of these seem to be from odd configurations. Try the following:
- If you're using Windows XP, make sure your sound acceleration is set to full under the dxdiag utility.
- If you're using a Realtek onboard, please update your drivers from http://www.realtek.com.tw
- If you're using a Creative sound card, please update your drivers from http://support.creative.com
- Please make sure you're not using the in-game sound options' Use Hardware checkbox, especially if you're on Windows Vista or Windows 7.
- Try using a lower number of sound channels in the game's sound options.
- Some cinematic are not available using the online installer. These will stream to your game folder at a future date.
