Want An Extra 25+ FPS From Your 2003 Toaster?

Recommended Posts

This guide is tailored to those who are playing vanilla on a toaster or calculator like me #2003. These are custom very-low settings. I went from 13fps to 51fps. Over the next few days I am going to do some tweaking and see if I can make the game look sexier with out losing a shit load of FPS.


Step 1: Creating The Short Cut

  1. Create a shortcut to WoW.exe. You do this by right clicking on WoW.exe in your World of Warcraft directory and selecting "Create Shortcut"
  2. Right-click the newly-created shortcut and select "Properties". This will open the Properties window.
  3. In the "Target" field, add a space after the last quotation mark followed by -console. Hit "Apply" and close out of the properties window.
  4. Open World of Warcraft using the shortcut.
  5. To open the developer console, press the tilde key. It looks like ~ and is located to the left of the 1 and above the Tab key on a US keyboard layout

Step 2: The Console Commands + Numbers

After pressing ~ (console key) copy and paste each setting one at a time, & press enter.

I got alot of this info from nost forum thanks to shadow lurker how ever his was aimed towards making it look amazing.. where as mine is the opposite.. I'm also a big believer in if you find something good share it with the world!
