2.0.5 patch notes

2.0.5 seems to have rolled out again, this time with fewer problems (I'm now on and playing, anyway). I doubt very many of you are reading from work (unless you're in Europe, I suppose), but here are the rather boring patch notes:

World of Warcraft Client Patch 2.0.5 (01/14/2007)

  • Increased the maximum number of realms that can be listed in the Realm List.
  • Updated the Terms of Use.
  • Created an option to disable UI Acceleration for users of select video cards experiencing graphical corruption of the User Interface. To utilize this option, enter the following line to the Config.wtf file, located in the WTF subfolder of the game:

      Set UIFaster "x"

      Where x equals:

        0 - This turns off all UI acceleration
        1 - For Internal Use Only - DO NOT USE!
        2 - Enables partial UI acceleration only.
        3 - Enables all UI acceleration.

      Example:

      Set UIFaster "2"

      Note: For users experiencing graphical corruption of the User Interface, it is recommended to try option 2 in order to correct the problem. If this does not solve the issue, then use option 0 to disable all UI Accleration.

Patch 2.0.5 Issues


Apparently patch 2.0.5 came out overnight last night or early this morning. A lot of users are getting an "Unable to validate game version" error (pictured above) along with a myriad of other connection problems. The official forums are also down, or so slow as to be effectively down. I'm going to guess that perhaps your game version is fine and this will sort itself out in the next few hours as the patch gets distributed.

Thanks to everyone for submitting this as a topic suggestion, there's too many of you to credit directly.

UPDATE 10:54 from the in-game Breaking News:
"The 2.0.5 client-side patch has caused issues with our authentication system. These issues can cause players to be suddenly disconnected from the game, as well as prevent them from logging in to the game. We are working to resolve this issue as soon as possible and will provide you with updates as soon as they are available."

UPDATE 11:30
The realms are accessible, or at least mine is. The forums are also back online and usable.
