What do you mean client-patch file? You mean some kind of file that your friends run on their computers?

What exatcly are you patching? The only file that needs to be changed on the client side is the realmlist.wtf.

i know
here is some source-code from the Realmd.exe:
Code:
...
        ///- Check if we have the apropriate patch on the disk
        char tmp[64];
        // No buffer overflow (fixed length of arguments)
        sprintf(tmp,"./patches/%d%c%c%c%c.mpq",ch->build,ch->country[3],
            ch->country[2],ch->country[1],ch->country[0]);
...
if the wow-version is to old then send the server a patchfile to the client...
how can i create it???

not sure what to tell you on that..

I took those comments as meaning, check the client to be sure it is patched to the correct official ver. (1.12.1?) but I could be wrong.

no - he thinks because of this programcode -
that the mangos server will send the needed patch files to patch the wow client if someone tries to logon with a false / wrong or too old version.
so - similiar to the orginal server - that patches your wow client if yours too old.

but i don't have a GLUE how that works at the moment ;-)
