About NPCScan Cache Remover

* With the changes made in Warlords of Draenor, the process this script provides is no longer needed. I'm leaving it up for now until Warlords releases. If you know of other games or tasks this script could be used in, feel free to rip it off and use it there. Thanks for all the downloads! It's pretty neat to think there were so many folks out there that were able to use this to save themselves some time.

NPCScan Cache Remover is a .bat file that will delete your creature cache file. It runs checks to determine 32 or 64 bit clients, then checks to see if WoW is already running. It checks and reports at each step what it has found and will tell you whether or not it has cleared the cache.

There's a new file posted as beta under Other Downloads that should work alongside the new Battle Net app. If you haven't launched WoW yet, run the wow.bat file and it will clear the cache. If you're in game and need to clear the cache, exit the game, run the wow.bat file, then hit the Play button in the app.

Repackaged to a .zip file.

    ive changed my setting to this but it still doesnt work can you help me with it

    set wowdir="C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft - this is where my WoW is Stored
    set wow_process64="Wow-64.exe"
    set wow_process32="Wow.exe"
    set creature_file=%wowdir%Cache\WDB\enGB\creaturecache.wdb" - This is because i live in the Uk
    set launcher_file=%wowdir%Wow-64.exe" - this is what you said would make it start up automatically

    looks like you're missing the \ at the end of the set wowdir line.  It should read:

    set wowdir="C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\

    Without the trailing slash, it will try to run C:\Users\Public\Games\World of WarcraftWow-64.exe, which doesn't exist.

    I can't managed to make it work eve after I changed these lines :

    set wowdir="C:\Jeux\World of Warcraft
    set wow_process64="Wow-64.exe"
    set wow_process32="Wow.exe"
    set creature_file=%wowdir%Cache\WDB\enGB\creaturecache.wdb"
    set launcher_file=%wowdir%World of Warcraft Launcher.exe"

    If you're in C:\Jeux then I'm guessing you're French, Canadian or both. In that case, you'll want to change the line:

    set creature_file=%wowdir%Cache\WDB\enGB\creaturecache.wdb"


    set creature_file=%wowdir%Cache\WDB\frFR\creaturecache.wdb"

    If that still doesn't work, then go to your C:\Jeux\World of Warcraft\cache\WDB directory and find the four letter language localization you're using and make it match that line.

    my wow isnt in the program folder is C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns.... how could i go about getting this to work for me?

  • #20

    You need to find where it's putting your creaturecache.wdb file, then point it there.  If your Addons folder is at C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns, then you should be able to make it work by opening the file in Notepad and editing the set wowdir= line to read:

    set wowdir="C:\Users\Public\Games\World of Warcraft\

    The .bat file you have doesn't remove my cache due to me having my WoW folder just in my c: drive, I don't have it stored in my program files because doing so causes problems with WoW itself and with others. Is there a way to edit the .bat so that I can get it to work for me?

  • #17

    Yes, just open it up with Notepad.  Edit the line in between the REM comments that begins "set wowdir:"

    REM Variable block below.  Change to match your settings if you get an error.

    set wowdir="Change this path"




    REM End variable block.  You should not need to change anything below this line.

    Thank you very much! It works well and will def be used daily from me

    I was about to write a .bat file to do this very thing when I decided to check here first. Thank you!

    Not sure what's up with comments, but my posts are disappearing.  To do what you're asking, poisonrei, if you open the wow.bat file with notepad, you can edit line 10 as follows:

    For 32-bit, change

    set launcher_file=%wowdir%World of Warcraft Launcher.exe"


    set launcher_file=%wowdir%Wow.exe"

    For 64-bit, change

    set launcher_file=%wowdir%World of Warcraft Launcher.exe"


    set launcher_file=%wowdir%Wow-64.exe"

    Thank you, I appreciate the response. :D

    Is there a way to make it launch WoW without the launcher? I currently use shortcuts that skip the launcher altogether and go right into the game and I don't like having to take that extra step to do the launcher.
