Opening a WTF file

Ok i recently tried to open my world of warcraft realmlist file but it says i cannot because its either corrupted, or i dont have the support to convert it or its in use.

Its a WTF file if that helps, can anyone help me out here? I think i need to find the original program it was made in.

Help me please :bounce:

  1. It says its either damage or on an unsupported format
  2. LOL

    reminds me of the .porn files i send when you cant sent .EXE :)
  3. thats HILARIOUS, did anyone set you up?
    edit: since you don't seem to realise, wtf stands for what the fu ck
  4. I've seen these files somewhere before never did anything for me
  5. Actually, WOW does use WTF files, but I have no idea of what you're trying to do in the first place.
  6. You can open the WTF files with Notepad or wordpad they are just text files
  7. i concur they are standard text files - i open mine all the time
  8. wtf?
  9. Wow uses wtf files. One of them you can (or even have to) delete if you get problems with the game.
  10. LOL a wtf file?
  11. WTF is also stands for something extremely sexy!
    WTF
  12. I've read from somewhere it was a beer ad for "Where's The Foster"
    or something like that. :D
  13. WTF to that youtube XD
  14. The file "realmlist.wtf" contains information that is used by the World of Warcraft game to get the servers in which it connects to & the update servers address also. The only reason to edit this file is to play on free private servers in which there are many of online now days. You can open this file with just about any text editor program. The WTF has nothing to do with its online meaning its an actual file extension used only for the purpose of storing the games server & updates connection information.

    The default file text is as follows:

    set realmlist us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com
    set patchlist us.version.worldofwarcraft.com

    When you play on a private server you just delete both lines & place the servers address in that you wish to play on & of course you must first have an account on their server to connect as well.

    Example Fake Server:

    set realmlist www.TonyFordz.net

    The above is what your private servers text would look like but I used my home page address instead & I don't run private servers so it will not do anything for you as its just an example. Where "www.TonyFordz.net" is you would replace it with the private servers address.

    Hope this helps,
    Tony

    I know this is a long time ago (2007) but you seem to know a bit or alot xd
    ive got Wow-LK and i want to go on a free sever i did before, but in the WTF folder theres a wtf file that says Config.wtf and its got this in it:
    SET locale "enGB"
    SET realmList "world of warcraft server( i edited this but i forget the previous thing that was here)"
    SET coresDetected "2"
    SET hwDetect "0"
    SET gxColorBits "24"
    SET gxDepthBits "24"
    SET gxResolution "1024x768"
    SET gxRefresh "60"
    SET gxMultisampleQuality "0.000000"
    SET gxFixLag "0"
    SET videoOptionsVersion "1"
    SET movie "0"
    SET Gamma "1.000000"
    SET readTOS "1"
    SET readEULA "1"
    SET readTerminationWithoutNotice "1"
    SET showToolsUI "1"
    SET Sound_OutputDriverName "System Default"
    SET Sound_MusicVolume "0.40000000596046"
    SET Sound_AmbienceVolume "0.60000002384186"
    SET farclip "777.000000"
    SET specular "1"
    SET particleDensity "1.000000"
    SET groundEffectDensity "24"
    theres also a realmlist.wtf file in in Data\enGB folder so i deleted the config file or edited, did the two things, and the file in the enGB folder but when i try to login in to the sever i want it says wrong username bla bla...
    when i close the game the Config file is there again but the other file i put there is still there or sometimes not.
    any ideas?
    thanks
  18. Hey there,

    Sorry I am not able to keep up with every place I post online lol because there are just so many sites its a shame that you cant just sign up once online & that be your login information net wide...

    On a note for the WTF settings I know that this information has changed as WoW has tried to keep people from making changes to the server connection file but honestly I do not play this game anymore but I setup a server about 1 years ago which was under the newer wtf file settings which you have show here...

    I will reinstall the game in a few days then come back here to make a simple guide for you since things have changed since I last played...
  19. what program do u need to have to open a wtf file
  20. whats it called
  21. pls reply nquikly
  22. A WTF file is a file for the game WoW.
  23. what does WTF in WoW really means? Why not ask your game mates for answers, you can do it buddy!

    Goodluck on your WTF
  24. As already stated WTF files are associated with the game World of Warcraft, and is an acronym for WoW Text File. It can be opened by any text editing program, my personal favorite is TextPad (freeware) as it allows you to show line numbers in the editor.
  25. Do the following,

    Right click

    Properties

    where it says "Open with" change that to Textpad or something of that nature

    OK

    Apply

    Then simply double click it and it will come up where you asked it to :na:
  26. better it helps
