So when I quit wow yesterday, I did not see that the background patcher was running and thus I now have wow 3.02 which Scape does not support. Anyone know how to knock it back to 2.42?

Good question! Fortunately they have posted a guide on WoWScape for backpatching.

http://forums.scapegaming.com/index.php?showtopic=81979

WoWScape uses 2.4.3, so you'll need the patches that get you to that level.

Alternatively, just back up these folders:
C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WTF
C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons

Uninstall Warcraft, delete the C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\ folder, then reinstall Warcraft and use the patches linked above to get to 2.4.3 (quite a bit of downloading, FYI) and then copy the folders we backed up back to their original locations.

OK, so a word to the wise, turn off autopatching because when I repair after 3.01 it drops me back to 3.01 instead of 2.0 or whatever, so I have to completely reinstall everything which wont be for a few days since Im in and out and I will have to repatch everything

There was a procedure before 3.0, but now I can't seem to find a post 3.0 one. Also, I can say that I got autopatched twice now. I reinstalled the game last night while I was studying frantically for my exam today, and I had my computer patching this morning, but there is a point in the patching process where it starts downloading from the launcher instead of after opening the game, and of course while I wasnt paying attention I screwed myself again and have 3.0 . This is a pain in the ass Sad
