Wrath of the Lich King (Patch 3.3) loading screens

These aren't new, they are just widescreen versions of the normal loading screen. --g0urra[T҂C] 21:07, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

didn't they all went widescreen?
Outland got a phoenix, adding it back

No, those who has monitors with widescreen resolutions get these. Those who hasn't get the normal ones as far as I know. --g0urra[T҂C] 21:27, August 15, 2010 (UTC)
Shouldn't all the widescreen versions still be on the article though (I don't see them)? It seems like a valid change to record, and they do differ reasonable from the non-widescreen versions. Kirkburn  talk  contr 17:59, August 16, 2010 (UTC)
If I get it, before 3.3 everyone had a non-widescreen loading screen, but after 3.3, widescreens got widescreen loadingscreen?

Yes A'noob. :) Before patch 3.3, those loading screens weren't wide. After, they now actually show more than the original. — Surafbrov T / P / C 22:45, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Login screen

Do we really need to keep the Cataclysm Beta login screen? Which seems to be (to me) the most evident placeholder ever.

The way I see it, we exist to document, not make judgements. This login screen is temporary, but it's what's in the beta right now, and so it deserves to be in the article. - LucidFox (talk) 10:16, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Kinda feeling let down with deathwings roar on this new login screen. Emmac1990 (talk) 14:58, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

MoP New Screens

Well i was playing today til i notice Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms login screens were updated with the new Mists of pandaria logo instead of the Cataclysm logo. — Surafbrov T / P / C 00:58, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Updated screens

I've recently updated the loading screens for resolution 1280x1024. If a widescreen was available, I've used that instead at a 1920x1200. The burning crusade and vanilla loading screens are 640x512 now instead of a square 512x512. I'd recommend at least resolution 1280x1024 for future loading screens unless it's like 512x512. Any ones that was already at 1280x1024 were most likely updated because of some changes. For an example; The Cataclysm Northrend loading screen had a brightness changed from what I've uploaded. Here's what it was before my upload so you can compare them. Or maybe the image has been updated; for an example. Also some of these uplaods were done to make the size a bit smaller but the image is still the same. You can see an example here. The image that I just uploaded is a widescreen, and the original one isn't a widescreen but the widescreen one is way smaller than the original.

Creating blank login screens

To take a screenshot of a blank login sccreen:

  1. Backup your Fonts and Interface folders in the game directory.
  2. Unpack this tiny archive to your game directory.
  3. Launch WoW.exe or WoW-64.exe.

If you did everything right, the login screen should have no UI except for a blinking text cursor. Take a screenshot at the desired resolution, then restore your original Fonts and Interface folders (or, if you had no Fonts folder, delete the one unpacked from the archive).

Technical details: the game font is replaced with an invisible font, and relevant textures UI used on the loading screen are replaced with fully transparent ones. - Linneris (talk) 16:28, 8 October 2016 (UTC)

On second thought I forgot to remove the logo, I'll remake the screenshot later. - Linneris (talk) 17:16, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
I've created a repository here and will keep it up to date with each expansion. — Surafbrov T / P / C 11:20, 21 February 2020 (UTC)

Legion Broken Isles loading screen x2

Should the login screen from 7.0.3 with a blue half-Shalamayne be mentioned in the article? Either as an image in Loading_screen#Legion, or as an image in Loading_screen#Miscellaneous, or as a text mention in Loading_screen#World_Screen_Trivia.--Adûnâi (talk) 20:51, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

I reuploaded the old one as a separate file for the gallery. -- DarkTZeratul (talk) 21:46, 22 November 2016 (UTC)

Rogue order hall

Should it be mentioned that rogues are the only class that doesn't have a unique loading screen?--KIROCHI) 17:55, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

I guess it could have a sentence in the notes section of the Hall of Shadows page.--Ryon21 (talk) 18:37, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

Sorting login images

Do you think it should be sorted by Ui/non ui or by expanion or as it is now without a sections which sort them? (Yuvalal (talk) 07:56, 3 June 2020 (UTC))

I think the current order (without UI by expansion, then with UI by expansion) is fine. - Linneris (talk) 08:34, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
