WoW (Retail) Weapon Model Retro-Porting

Hello everyone,

I'm pretty new in the retro-porting process. I gathered informations to retro port a weapon model into my TrinityCore (WOTLK) 3.3.5a.

My medias :

I overwritted the ItemDisplayInfo.dbc into my "dbc" directory (TrinityCore server) to match the MPQ's one.  (Edited line : 31302)

The M2 file was converted with https://github.com/MaxtorCoder/MultiConverter.

At the end of the process and cache deleted, nothing change in game.

 

Any advice or help would be appreciated ! Thank you for your time !

Friendly, Classic.

@Alastor Strix'Efuartus,

My goal is to replace an existing entry from the ItemDisplayInfo.dbc with a new M2 model.

So the existing item from my DB which using this display entry will be automatically updated.

 

Just overwrite the model of an item with BFA/Legion/WoD/Cata model (if it's easier to understand)

@Alastor Strix'Efuartus,

The axe M2 model is already converted with the Converter tool (Quoted in my first message).

That's why I don't understand the issue here 😅

@Alastor Strix'Efuartus,

First of all, thank you for your time and for the answer 😉 !

If I understand well, I should edit the MD21 chunk with 010 Editor, then convert the M2 file with Converter tool ?

In this case, do I need to check everytime this header for each M2 file ?
