How to install and update Total RP 3

Total RP 3 is available for download on Curse. There are two ways to install and update Total RP 3. The first and easy one is to use the Curse Client, a desktop application that will manage your add-ons folder for you. Curse has recently updated their app and it works great on Windows and now on macOS too, but if you don't want to use the Curse Client you can install and update your add-ons manually

Using Curse Client

Curse is one of the main repository of add-ons. They offer a free desktop app they call the Curse Client that you can download on this page.

Using the Curse Client requires a free Curse account (you can register here).

Once authenticated, the Client will scan for existing add-ons on your installation. If it finds updates, they will be indicated by an update button. All you have to do is click this button to update the add-on.

Once the Curse Client is installed, you can use it to install new add-ons for you, either by browsing the built in repository of add-ons.

When launching World of Warcraft, make sure that Total RP 3 and its modules are in the list of add-ons found by World of Warcraft by clicking on the add-ons button in the lower left corner.
