Having the same Big world error after the update. Unable to load the game.


My drivers are up to date.Though do I recall having read about a bug in latest Nvidia drivers?


There are lots of threads on the Big World error, and lot's of advice. Most of the responses advised to re-install WoWs, which seems the sensible thing to do.  So that is what I am doing. Will report on results soon


Attached File   DxDiag.txt   38.33K


Edit  -the re-installation worked, game loading and playing fine.

For those that are worried about re-installing the game and have slow internet speeds/capped data allowances:


Step 1.  Copy the /Updates folder from your existing game somewhere safe.

Step 2.  Uninstall the game if possible (otherwise just delete the folder).

Step 3.  Run the current installer from the portal.

Step 4.  Stop the Launcher once it starts downloading updates.

Step 5.  Copy the /Updates folder you saved into the new game directory.

Step 6.  Run the new Launcher and it will use the updates you saved rather than downloading them from scratch.
