Export mini-map Cataclysm to Wotlk ?

Hello, i'm trying to import the Cataclysm interface to Wotlk but i never did any modding before... 

I'm trying first to import the mini-map from Cataclysm to Wotlk.
I tried to open MPQ files on Cataclysm data, i found some blp files in MINIMAP folder located in local-enUS.MPQ and i replaced them in the same mpq file in Wotlk.

But it doesn't work, the mini-map is exactly the same and i don't have this window with multiple select 1635423376-172196.jpg (194×354) (noelshack.com)

I tried also to do the same with the minimap lua and xml located in the framexml folder but i got an xml error after launching the game


Do you think it's possible to do that ?  Or i could never play with a modern client UI with this old expansion ? :(

Hi. There's a DBC file which makes sure the game has a minimap associated with a game (world/continent) map, and which also makes sure that the game shows the player position-indicating cursor on the right spot. I explained the way this works on WotLK hopefully in big enough detail here:

Now, you still might have to face issues with exploration. Unfortunately, I never toyed with that, but I hope this should at least give you some entry to the following steps required. Best of luck!
