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

The easy way around the changing of the files is to make them "read only" other then minor game changes there should be no reason to change the config or launcher cfgs. Not sure if this is working anymore though as I've not see much of a download in the last week or so since 4.0.3a. Did Blizzard actually give everyone cata already and we just need a key? or is this still working?

I have two accounts;
My main with the collectors edition ordered, and the other has the digital upgrade.

Since I play my main account far more often I keep getting set back to LK
leaving large patches when I jump over to my second.

Thank you for the addon, now I don't have to keep changing my files.

Im assuming this mod is just changing accountType to "CT" instead of "LK" in the Config.wtf and Launcher.wtf files on each log in?
