Valhalla Legends Forums Archive | BnetDocs Research and Discussion | Information: World of WarCraft Version "Byte"

Instead of a byte, its a DWORD for WoW, and its actually figured from the game version this time.

First, you take the game version (currently 1.6.0), remove the dots. Then, you take each number and convert it to the character (0x31 becomes 0x01, etc), and pad it with 0x00's at the beginning. Therefore, 1.6.0 becomes 00 01 06 00. 1.6.1 will be 00 01 06 01, and so on and so forth.

Incidentally, it's a "version dword" on other clients, too.  It's just not called that.

Why is this in the trash can?

Probably because it wasn't posted in the appropriate forum in the first place, so a moderator decided it was trash.
