About SayDigitalUpgrade

Keeps your "accounttype" updated to enable the Launcher to download Cataclysm data files as it becomes available. The "accounttype" is reset on each login and this mod keeps it updated to Cataclysm - thus making your game client "Cataclysm ready" (sounds like my HD-ready TV!).

Mainly for players without a digitally upgraded Cataclysm account presently, but would like to download all the Cataclysm data files currently permitted by the Launcher. It is also likely more data files (such as Cinematics) would be made available as the release date approaches, hence keeping the "accounttype" actively updated to Cataclysm after each login would be a good idea; until your account is finally upgraded to Cataclysm.

It'll also enable the Launcher to download future Cataclysm content patches with a non-Cataclysm enabled account as it becomes available.

You'll need to log into the World of Warcraft game client with this mod enabled in order to enable the Launcher to start the download of Cataclysm data on it's next run after you exit the game. The data will download while you have the Launcher open.

notes: this mod doesn't actually "say" anything, I simply wanted to continue using the "Say" prefix for my mods. But in any case, lets just say you want to be "Cataclysm ready"... I know I do!

btw: this mod does not upgrade your account to Cataclysm, it simply makes your game client "Cataclysm ready" when used with the Launcher

    This worked beautifully. Once my Cataclysm expansion arrived all I had to do was register it on and log into WoW. I didn't have to wait for the download since everything was already there.

    I looked at the other addon's you have, but I don't need any of them at this time, but keep up the good work.

    Is this only for US games or can EU use it too?

    Incase anyone was wondering if Blizzard allowed this, Blizzard agree with users doing this, so no worries about breaking the ToS!

    Sala71, this is not an account hack in the way you are suggesting with your double post.

    The .lua code is:

    local accounttype = GetCVar("accounttype")

    if (accounttype == "LK"
    or accounttype == "BC"
    or accounttype == "CL"
    or accounttype == "RT"
    or accounttype == "ST")
    DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Cataclysm data files download enabled")

    It is not hacking your account. It is triggering the Cataclysm download by telling Blizzard you are CT (cataclysm user) instead of LK (lich king user) etc.

    Why do this?

    So on the release day, you don't have to wait all day for the download, it'll be there on your system ready to update.
