PostSubject: auto cache/wdb cleaner   Sun Oct 14, 2007 6:39 pm

i found this from a guy named moujin, been using it myself and it works great

Before submitting reports for bugs, please make sure your cache folder
is clean prior to the bug report. Old data is still stored in your
client after you play.

This is located where you installed the game, normally in C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Cache. There should be a folder named WDB
there that you can delete. This will cause no harm to the client as it
only deletes cached items, NPCs, etc., and will rebuild itself the next
time you log into the game.

It can get to be a pain in the butt
to have to keep doing this. This, my friends, will make your life a
hundred times easier! Read below!




Automated Cache Cleaner
This
little gem cleans out the Cache folder automatically every time you
start up your client. It's something I've used for a while now, and
have decided to post this here for everyone to use. Please follow these
steps carefully as I am not responsible for anything that goes wrong to
your computer!

This works for all language versions of WoW! So as long as you install it correctly, everything should work fine.

This
guide is meant for people of all technical levels. I wrote this guide
as simple as I could so everyone that doesn't understand English can do
it very easily.


Step 1
Download this file. Extract it, and you should see a file called "wdb_cleaner.bat". Drop that into where you have installed the game (normally in C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\). Proceed to Step 2 if you need a guide.

For those that are more computer savvy, make a .bat file with this inside of it.

CODE
@echo off
echo y | rd /s "Cache"
start "" WoW.exe
exit


I trust that if you know what it does, then you can figure it out from there. If you don't know, then proceed to Step 2.


Step 2
Go to your shorcut for World of Warcraft on your desktop. Right-click it and select Properties.

You should see the following window:


(The colored highlights are there for reference, so don't panic.)


Step 3
Now where you see the Target: field (highlighted in red), make sure you type out what it says in the box. The default should be Launcher.exe or WoW.exe. Replace that with wdb_cleaner.bat after the last "\" and before the end quotation. Just look at the picture as a reference in case you're confused.


Step 4
Now in the Start in: field (highlighted in blue),
make sure you point it to the main directory of where you have
installed the game. The default directory is what it says in the
screenshot above.


Step 5
Now to change the icon. You will no doubtedly get this error message. Just click "OK".

And then click the "Browse" button (the green button pictured below).



Navigate to where you installed the game (normally in C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\), and select WoW.exe. Then click Open. See below.



You should now see the WoW icon in the only window that's open.



Highlight it and just click "OK" at the bottom, then click "OK" again on the Properties window.


Now
you're all done! Just use this shortcut to launch the game now and it
will automatically clean your cache folder every time you start the
game.



Hope this guide was useful to you.
