      International Game Master Recruitment   04/27/21

        Greetings! The Firestorm International Staff is currently looking for Game Masters! Here you can see the state of recruitment for each expansion: Oribos, our Shadowlands realm : OPENED Sethraliss, our Battle for Azeroth realm: OPENED Sylvanas & Greymane, our Legion realms: OPENED Garrosh, our Mists of Pandaria realm: OPENED  
      What is a Game Master ?

      A Game Master's role is to help players, to guide them in their journey and to make sure that everyone's stay on Firestorm is as pleasant as possible, by making sure that we all respect the rules, and each other.
      You will thus be a support for the whole international community in game, and on the forum.  
        Prerequisites: A good knowledge of WoW as a whole, but with a strong emphasize on the expansion you are applying on.  Proper english skills, including a flawless spelling and the capability to follow and answer in a voice conversation. Having a great level of patience and compassion when in contact with players! Being at least 18 years old, and mature Having a functional mic, and a valid discord account A strong will to help, and being able to listen, not just hear! Being able to organize and schedule your own time  Being available at least 10 hours a week, regularly (if you can log 10h the weekend, but not at all during the week it won't do!) Being able to work autonomously but also being comfortable talking with your team!   Will be a good addition to your resume: Having a knowledge of GM Commands (Trinity / Mangos) Having a GM experience, even on another server (if so, which one ?) Anything that you can put forward in your application, that would make us chose you over someone else!  
       
      How to apply?  
      ↓ If you think you would fit in the position, and wish to join the International GM team, please write us an email here: ↓
      »   fsrecruitmentinter@gmail.com   «
      Knowing and mastering everything isn't required! You will join a team of people with their own set of skills: diversity is a good thing!   When you send your application, the email must necessarily have: In the subject, the proper expansion tag: [BFA] / [Legion] / [MOP]  Your discord account username & tag. Example: Discord#1234 All of your Firestorm account emails Your forum account name       The more information and details you provide, the better! It shows involvement, but also helps us evaluate your potential as individual, and within the team.
      Telling us that you're motivated in two lines probably won't work out: we expect to get to know you a little bit when reading your application. To get some insight on you, your personnal experience and knowledge!

      Your application will be reviewed and we will send you an email back with our answer, usually within a week. If it gets accepted we will contact you directly on discord to proceed with a voice interview in order to get to know each other better!

       
      If you have any questions regarding the international GM position, you can send a private message to either Melfela#2038 or 'Pantoufle™#8984 on discord.
      The International staff thanks you for your interest, and hopes to hear from you soon!

      International Moderator Recruitment   04/27/21

        Greetings, The Firestorm Team is currently looking for Forum and Discord Moderators to reinforce its ranks. It is possible to apply for one of the two platforms only.     Who are we, what are our jobs? The moderators are the people mainly in charge of monitoring the Firestorm forum and the International rooms on the public Discord. They have almost no power in game and will never intervene in game (except in very exceptional cases). They monitor the forum in terms of its content, moderate, warn and sanction people who do not respect the rules. They also provide assistance to players and respond to those who encounter problems.     How to apply ? Applications should be sent to the following address: >> fsrecruitmentinter@gmail.com <<
      The subject of the email must start with the [Mod] tag.
      A minimum of information is to be provided when applying. It goes without saying that two lines to say that you are motivated will not be enough.
      We expect from you in this application an expression and development of your experiences / knowledge / personal information. If your application interests us, you will be contacted automatically by Discord or by email for a possible interview and then a test period will follow, the duration of which will depend entirely on you. Please indicate your firestorm account email as well as your nickname on the forum and that of discord so that we can look at your background and your behavior there.
      Are required in your application: Be 16 years of age or older. Impeccable spelling. Know how to use a forum correctly. A minimum of knowledge on WoW. Being able to keep your cool, have rigor, regularity and autonomy. Discord & a functional microphone to facilitate intra-staff communication. Will be a plus for your application: Relatively wide schedules. Have already been a moderator on other forums or other discords (if so, indicate which ones). And what you may find interesting to highlight.   Please indicate your nickname on the forum and that of discord so that we can look at your background and your behavior there.   The Firestorm Team thanks you for your future involvement.
      See you soon.

Guide to fixing: The CAS System was unable to initialize: ClientHandler: initialization error: failed to create storage component.

61 posts in this topic

Guide to fixing Launcher error:  The CAS System was unable to initialize: ClientHandler: initialization error: failed to create storage component.

After downloading the client uTorrent makes the folder and files readonly (to protect the integrity of the torrent contents...).
As a result when you start the client you get the infamous CAS System error:
569481f94fe0.jpg

Further keywords to aid finding this guide:
failed fetching the CDN configuration file
tact::ClientHandler::Create failed: E_NOT_AVAILABLE

To FIX this remove the readonly flag from the folder and it's contents:
Rightclick the folder, find the checkbox for the read-only flag, untick (make it empty), then press Ok / Apply.

After downloading the torrent, your trade window would not work. To prevent this issue:

delete this file:
  Interface/FrameXML/SecureCapsule.lua
delete this folder
  Interface/Addons/Blizzard_StoreUI


This fixes not being able to trade or mail gold or items to your alts, or anybody ingame. These files are not downloaded by the Launcher, and not necessary to use the client.  You find further details and explanation in the bugtracker:
https://firestorm-servers.com/en/report/see_report/40820#report_message_136386

removed Interface/Addons/Blizzard_GMChatUI, this should not be deleted

If you think your folder is reset to readonly, then consider this:

Windows did not crawl all the files to see if any has readonly flag, therefore it shows the MIXED/UNKNOWN readonly flag which is quite confusingly a big bar in Windows 10 (a smaller bar in Win 8):.

folder-read-only-unknown-win10.png.d29c52252d5a9160e5280800a572b967.png

This is NOT when readonly is SET.

To check if your files are readonly or not, open the properties of a few individual files in the data folder, there the readonly checkbox should be empty:

Kind regards,

If you have downloaded the recently released torrent which contains a zip file, then this is not an issue anymore, as the files unzipped have no readonly flag.  That was caused by the uTorrent client "protecting" the files from modification so it can seed it to downloaders.

Most probably you have a different issue, and failed to notice that the error message is different.  This topic is about the error message "failed to create storage component".
The image above shows a similar, but different error. Probably you have that "failed fetching the CDN configuration file", thats a connection issue. Keep on searching the forum or post a tech support question (this is an option for the lazies).  If you submit to tech support, be aware that "didn't work" is zero information. Submitting the screenshot and/or copying/typing your exact error message is the way to go if you expect any help.

Greetings, Dallaryen

Also, make sure your WoW folder isn't in the root folder (aka right on the disk itself). You can't easily remove Read-only rights if that's the case.

guys I've been trying for a week to fix this problem, I think if I can not fix it today I'll change the server, I think it's useless to wait any longer, the read only folder does not take me away, I tried to do a lot of things in is week but nothing, fortunately we have just played and donations have not yet done I did not play all the account, good luck to everyone I hope you solve =)

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/376808947992100867/463974179642015744/FS735.wtf

Extract the config.rar to Data folder
and copy FS735.wtf to WTF folder
after that remove the read only
from the world of warcraft folder
and execute either Firestorm-64.exe as admin or Firestorm Launcher as admin

1st  the full client cant be download!!...keep on connecting to peers!!!

2nd   the minimum client cant use this method, ii think is because the file that need to set as read-only is not been download, coz i can only find sheme but cant find data.0000

3rd   is there any way i can download full client not by torrent file, or other place? coz seems like the only chance i have left now is the full client

4th is there any other ways to solve this problem?

 

hope i can get reply soon.
