WoW on 2 computers?

I ‘d like to be able to play WoW on my G5 and my Powerbook. No matter what files I’ve moved over and copied I just can’t seem to get my G5 to have the same settings and interface as my Powerbook. Any ideas of what I’n not copying so that this will work?

    Most wow “prefs” are stored in the WTF folder. As long as both you machines use the same screen resolution. Both screens should look similar. There may be a “com.xxxxxxx” preference too. But I’d have to check that.

    Hmm. I just dragged my Warcraft folder and copied it from my PowerBook to my Intel Mac Mini, and that worked fine (although some of the toolbars were in the wrong place I think because of the different screen resolutions). I don’t remember changing any system preferences.

    I run WoW on 2 computers as well, my desktop PC and laptop PC. The resolutions are different, as the laptop is widescreen, but all my settings are basically the same. The only thing I have to sync is my Auctioneer .lua file ‘cuase I never want to not be able to scan because my more current .lua is on the other computer.

    When I initially moved from one computer to the other all I did was copy over the WTF folder and it seemed to work fine.

    Michael I know you are using Macs and not PCs but I dont think it can be all that different. It would help us be able to help you if you could tell us EXACTLY what settings are not transferring so we can eliminate some things.

    My problem is probably related to having WAAY to may “Extra’s” that I use to play.

    1. At least 30 addons
    2. 60 custom macro’s
    3. Custom DAB interface
    4. N52 with keybindings
    5. Logitech MX 1000 mouse with keybindings

    Then everytime I change ANYTHING I need to re copy everything over again.

    Is it really even worth it?

    I would think the macro’s and almost all of the add-ons would be fine (screen resolution notwithstanding). I can’t speak for the other stuff though.

    Well, what I end up doing is copying my preferences from my main machine (intel iMac) to my laptop (12″ PB) whenever I have to download a patch.

    I use a lot of addons, but I don’t have a tendency to change anything unless I have to upgrade them anyways.

    Is it worth it? Honestly, I’m not sure, since my desktop is much more machine than my laptop is, so it can handle more addons and more tasks than my laptop can. I personally am debating going back to the standard UI with just CTRA on my laptop, in hopes that everything will work a little smoother.

    I have four WoW-capable PCs at home and I’ve long since given up keeping them in sync. In fact, for ages I didn’t bother with add-ons at all because it was a huge PITA just keeping them up to date. Now I use a friend’s add-on set and if anything goes wrong I just ask him for a copy of his add-ons folder.
