    • Step 7.a. Insert the UserID you received from Sethzer. (http://realmplayers.com:5555/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=15)
    • Step 7.b. Press Validate and wait.
    • Step 7.c. If your UserID was not valid make sure you typed/copied it correctly. If you cant get it to validate press "Skip" and contact Dilatazu.
    • Step 7.d. The UserID can also be configured at a later stage by going into the VF_WoWLauncher Menu File->Settings.
  • Step 8. You are now done with the installation. Some configurations can be done from the Menu File->Settings.

Features:

Launch multiple clients with different configurations easily
  • In the Launcher you can easily create config profiles such as different resolutions to let you easily launch a "bank alt" WoW with the lowest resolution etc.
  • Configurations are easily chosen from a dropdownlist in the main window.
Play any of the supported private server realms easily
  • In the Launcher you can easily change what realm you want to connect to using a dropdownlist. Current supported realms are: Emerald Dream, Warsong, Al'Akir, Rebirth and Archangel(TBC)
Option to clear WDB
  • If wanted the Launcher clears the WDB folder when wow is started.
Easily find out about the latest feenix forum news
  • In the Launcher you can get a fast sneakpeek of the latest posts done to the "1.12.1 Changelogs" and "News and Announcements"/"Information and Releases"/"Server Updates" wow-one subforums. Forum posts are refreshed every hour and sorted by date, old posts can be hidden to further improve the visible impact a new post will have when you start the Launcher.
VF_RealmPlayers and VF_RaidStats uploading
  • The Launcher is direct replacement for the old VF_RealmPlayersUploader application used to upload VF_RealmPlayers data. If you have the addon installed and a UserID configured the data will automatically be uploaded after WoW is closed, just like it worked using the old WoWAndRPUploader shortcut.
  • The Launcher also automatically uploads any raids recorded using VF_RaidStats. Note that if you do not have VF_RealmPlayers or VF_RaidStats addon installed or no UserID configured, nothing will get uploaded.
Easily update your favourite addons to the latest versions
  • As an example updates to the addon VF_RealmPlayers and VF_RaidStats can easily be installed by clicking a button on an update notification.
  • The addon updating framework is generic and can be used for any addons. Contact me if you are an addon developer and want your newest versions to easily be distributed using this system.
VF_WoWLauncher can be updated easily
  • If any new updates exist to the VF_WoWLauncher you will be asked if you want to update. If you chose to update it will download the latest version and install it for you. When done with the update you will be able to use the latest new features.
Addon Manager(Added in Launcher version 1.1.6.53)
  • Easily manage the addons you have installed using the Addon Manager. You get a clear list of what addons you have installed and what characters it is enabled/disabled on.
  • Addons can be reinstalled or uninstalled with the click of a button.
  • Easily disable or enable any addon for any character.

Changelog
Changelog can be found here


[Edit]: Fixed link to information about Data Contribution and also changed so it says to contact Sethzer instead for UserID.

Hey,

Would this by chance be available in a different file format? Trying to install on a mac, and wine isn't able to run.
