Installation Bug: if you get this issue, please download the following dll inside the WC3 folder. This happens because they're missing in your OS.

Warcraft III News / WC3 Patch 1.28.4 is running now.
« on: June 20, 2017, 10:33:43 AM »
Warcraft III has been updated to version 1.28.4

Hello Blizzmodders!!

The thing with Warcraft is getting better and better. It was a rare calm and no updates (except the one linked in the related topics section), but this seems to have a good reason: A new patch with some new features.


Source: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20756885804#post-1

Now, let's analyze the post:

We'll be patching to 1.28.3 at 2PM PDT on June 20th.

The patch focuses on distribution and installation in the continuing effort to promote stability and improve Warcraft III’s pipeline. These changes fix myriad issues introduced from the migration to the modern game launcher.

Specific Changes & Improvements

  • Game turn rate adjusted to match LAN settings of 12 turns per second
Ok, Nothing to explain, but the part of the LAN part could be related with this GOOD news, from Back2Warcraft:


The big news is the Battle.net server is now moving at 100ms, compared to the slow 250ms. This is something that was a big issue in terms of playability. 10 points for Blizzard.

Quote
  • New installers available for PC and Mac
Ok, great...
Quote
  • Consolidated Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne into one game executable and one World Editor
YEAHHHH!!! A real solutions in terms of simplification. Definity +20 points for Blizzard.
Quote
  • Toggle added to main menu to switch between Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne
Something great :)
Quote
  • Added memory to relaunch the game version that was closed during the prior play session
??? I don't get it this. I'll check it later.

Bug Fixes

  • File paths containing non-Latin characters will now function normally
  • Entering windowed fullscreen will no longer minimize the game
  • Data that escaped the Polish mopaq was found and convinced it is necessary for an optimal gameplay experience


Known Issue

  • Consolidating to one executable breaks existing game shortcuts
Well, something to expect. We're glad to see the improvements applied to the game, and hopefully, this game will rise from the oblivion. What's next?? it seems with this patch there's enough foundations to get a content update in an easy way.

I'll be glad to hear your comments.

HUGSSS!!!!

Update: Blizzard seems to be updating now to 1.28.4. Bug fixes about some installation issues have been fixed (Source: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20756885804?page=6#post-101).

Hi:

I've done some research about your needs, and I feel that you have to give me some introduction into the topic of hard WC3 melee playing.

I'm really interested in helping you but I would need some basic guidance from your part :)

I have not dealt properly in the part of catching the EXE functionality, but we could get an alternative solution to you needs.

Hello Blizzmoders:

Things are coming faster than I thought, and it seems that patch 1.29 is coming faster and faster. And this can be proof by the news provided by Blizzard staff:
Quote from: Matt Morris, Developer
Our plan is to set up a PTR for Warcraft III, so that we can get early feedback from the community about our changes, and then make the appropriate fixes.

And this is the possible outcome of this announcement:

Hello,

Classic Games has been working hard on Warcraft III. The 1.28 patch didn’t hit all the marks we hold ourselves to. We’ve been making a lot of changes behind the scenes to make future work faster and more reliable.
So things are moving in the "right" direction.... hummm... ok :)

Patching and installation, CD keys, data migration, missing files from MPQs, usernames and file paths with UTF-8 characters, screen modes, order ID’s broke popular non-blizzard maps, and Mac specific issues were fallout from those improvements. We are working hard to address all the issues that you’ve brought to our attention. We appreciate your patience and involvement.
Patience, definitelyis what this community has built in all this years... no problem whatsoever  :D

Improving these classic codebases comes with its share of hazards, and we’re glad to partner with you on the endeavor. The better you communicate needs, wants, or bugs for the game, the more effective we will be at building a better Warcraft III.
It seems that we have to keep in touch with them, and this is showing a real interest, or trusting, in the community creativity skills... isn't it?

As we move forward, there will be quality of life game improvements, editor updates, new map pools, balance tweaks, and more. The recent patch was an important step in paving the way for the bigger ticket items that you all want. Please continue to give us constructive feedback, let us know where we missed, and what you want us to do!

Thank you,

Matt Morris
Lead Designer, Classic Games
Then it's mandatory to keep sticky into Blizzard forums or probably on Hive so they can keep a real feedback from the WC3 community. We'll try to keep up to date this news from Blizzard.

What improvements could be added to the current game? Share with us your opinions.

HUGGS!!!!

Blizzard Modding is now BLIZZMOD, OFFICIALLY!!!


Hello my fellow Blizzmoders!!!!

Today I had (at last!!) time to put some work in an idea I've been working since the last year: a new domain, shorter and easy to remind to the community. The outcome is that Blizzardmodding.info will now redirect to its shortened version, blizzmod.info. Secondly, with this domain upgrade, I've updated the site to the latest version of SMF (2.0.14), which brings more security stability and improved performance with an actual and future support to HTTPS and PHP7.

All the settings have been done in terms to do a permanent redirect (301) to the new domain, and this means that your current bookmarks to your site will move into the correct site. Anyways, we recommend you to update your links to the new domain. If you find some pages not loading or any possible issue with this site, feel free to post them here.

HUGSS!!!

Hello Blizzmodders!!

I was wandering into the deep sea of videos called YouTube, and I found a video interview with Pete Stilwell, senior producer of Classic games @Blizzard Entertainment. In this video he talks about the future of the classic games and he mentioned our beloved Warcraft 3. This patching system which is being implemented in WC3 (1.28.X for the people who's still coming to the latest WC3 news) seems to have a clear target: the possibility of better visuals and new game features.

It seems that good news are arising from Blizzard and the game itself is taking a good position, at least in terms of recognizing the WC3 modding / mapping community.

Here it is: the part where he mention WC3...


Original video from Yahoo Esports


What do you think about this interview? please share the news with your friends :)

HUGS!!!
