Warcraft III on PTR has been updated to 1.29
Warcraft III on PTR has been updated to 1.29

DOWNLOAD Warcraft III PTR Installer

Hello my fellow blizzmodders:

Some days ago there was a new patch in the PTR installation of Warcraft III and this update brought us, after a long loooooong time, a proper justice to the WC3 community. A new HUGE update, not a lesser one with the typical few changes and tiny fixes that only affected the ladder gamers in melee maps. This patch brings to us an unexpected change to the possibilities in the WC3 engine and this time, it was clear that the community demands were at last heard.

Would this a signal about a Warcraft 3 Remastering? probably as it has been said by several sites related to games [1 & 2 examples] will be Warcraft 4 on hold?, it's now a serious possibility. But in the meantime we can say at least: REJOICE wc3 community of modders, our prays has been heard and there's more to come.

Important changes in the game: Link
  • Widescreen: The game now supports true widescreen; there's some glitches in the moment but it's expectable to have some fixes in the moment. Right now in really width screens there's a blind mouse selection part that could occur. And it has been reported issues with other video processors (Intel graphics)
  • 24 Players: What??? YES!!! now you can make a map with support to 24 players!!! something incredible to be true... and it's TRUE!!. this brings a new possibility to new ideas for maps. This of course implies new player colors to try.
  • Bug fixes: stuff related with Mac compatibility and clan creation has been addressed.

World Editor Changes: Link
  • Object limit increased to 30,000
  • Map size limit increased to 480 x 480
  • Tile set limit increased to 16
  • Max execution number increased to 1666666
  • Max food limit increased to 999
  • Max resource limit increased to 9999999
  • Array size increased from 8192 to 32768
  • Display mana bar

And some Map Pools & Balance Updates which are described here.

Soon I will open a topic to deal with the new natives, where I'll do testings to each new function added to the WC3 game engine. Stay tuned to this topic so you can share and discuss the new features.
EDIT: topic opened: http://wc3jass.com/5555/patch-1-29-new-natives-a-testing-place/

What do you think about this patch?? please tell us your feelings and expectations.


Site News & Updates / Happy new year 2018 from Blizzmod Community!!!
« on: December 31, 2017, 11:30:33 PM »
Hello my fellow Blizzmodders:

Today is that lat day of the year where is an opportunity to remember all the thing we've done so far.

Thanks God, there's new stuff in the community to stand out, and I'll try to summarize.
  • One account for all the affiliate sites: With the new implementation, all the sites that belongs to the Blizzmod community allows to use the same account to access them. So if you registered your account in wc3modding.info, this same user and password can be used in the other places (blizzmod.info, wc3jass.com, etc...)

  • Resource filtering and easier search method available: You can see in blizzmod.info, wc3modding.info and wc3jass.com offer direct access links to the resources offered in those sites. All of them allows to have a clear description about its features and they can be filtered and searched by different categories, keywords and rating.

  • Topic integration with social networks: Every topic in blizzmod.info, wc3modding.info and wc3jass.com have links to Facebook and Google+, so you can share this topics easily with your friends. All the pages show nicely in those social networks. If the topic has an image in the first post, it will be used to stand out the topic in the sharing process.

  • Wiki/ integrated to the site: This section is aimed for integration with the coding highlighting. If you check, in the jass coding you can see a link over the function name which allows you to create or view a documentation to that function.

  • Related topic / resource: This feature allows to link any topic in all the pages from the Blizzmod network with other topics. This is useful to build "packs" of resources or to keep a trace of previous topics. This improves the chances that your topic gets accessible via google search.

  • Discord Chat: And the last but not least, the chat integration with Discord, where we're keeping together the community in support and chit chat in a reliable and faster way. It's easy to join, just follow the link :D

What's coming for 2018
  • Implement a faster way to upload resources. Right now you have to do two posting editions in order to implement the resources with images and download links.
  • uploading the model resources from the backup, so we can have again the big model database from the 2012 times. That's a big task to do.
  • Improve the icon submission system. Right now it's is slow and tedious to upload icon to the site.
  • Prepare the last version of JNGP (2.0.10) according to the new changes that seems to come in new patches of WC3

With all of this, I wish to all the community a happy new year 2018, expecting that your projects and goals gets successful and we hope this site keeps being useful to the WC3 community.

Dark Iron Devoted

A model from the abandoned project War of the Three Hammers, a campaign developed initially by Camel's Hump and with the participation of an great staff of modellers, animators and skinners. This is one of the several models developed for this project.

I hope you can give a good use in your project.


The devoted ones are often younger dwarves who wish to prove themselves in battle. Even though their swords are particularly sharp, or their armor especially strong, the willpower and their courage alone may well hold of the enemy long enough for spell casters to get themselves ready.

Model and skin by camel's Hump, base model by Blizzard.

Why cheat? what's the reason of promoting this in WC3?? well, in the mapping or modding process using the World editor, it's necessary to have agile ways to test stuff, and the cheats allow this process. This cheats works only on singleplayer mode and they're blocked in online gaming, for obvious reasons.

Demon Tunneler (Red)
By Moyack

This is my first customized model, developed to teach how to use re-UWRaping technique to create new kind of models changing its skin with another one.

Based in the easter egg model Sammy!, this model comes in two versions: Purple and red. It uses all ingame textures and with this we can ensure it works properly in any map.

Enjoy :D

Warcraft III News / WC3 - New map pool system: PTR 1.29 is coming!!!
« on: August 03, 2017, 08:25:42 AM »

Related Topics or Resources

Hello my fellow Blizzmodders:

In the coming patch is appearing the new balances in some maps, starting with a map called Therenas Stand, a classic and nice melee map. For this I'll let you a nice video from Back2Warcraft.


With the coming PTR, you can now test a new pool system. I can give you an explanation, but Blizzard itself does the job better than me :P

Let's read from Blizzard itself!!!


Classic Games is excited to announce Warcraft III PTR will be live in the coming days. Focus will be on new map pools. The China Joy show match on the updated Terenes Stand between Fly and 120 was the debut of the types of improvements we can't wait to share.

The new map pools will be a mixture of three things – must haves from the current pools, classic maps from older pools, and new ladder version maps. The ladder version maps (LV), are original maps that have undergone significant improvements.

Below is an overview of our objectives and specific lists of changes by pool. So take some time to read up on the new LV maps in the coming days so you will be well prepared when the PTR goes live:

General Improvements & Gameplay Objectives

    Balanced creep camp difficulty progression from early to late game
    Balanced creep drop tables for better item progression from early game to late game
    Item diversity: Varied Level 1 though 6 charged items and Level 1 through 6 permanent items
    Balanced all start locations: total amount and starting distance from lumber, equal amount of spacing, equal size choke points, et cetera
    Balanced expansion distance from start locations
    Decluttered points of interest to reduce visual competition during gameplay
    Retextured map surfaces for better visual clarity - both on screen and mini-map
    Minimized the size of trees and doodads that obstructed player view of points of interest
    Added cliff lines or deep water to edges of the map - removing hard edges (aesthetic choice for immersion)
    Properly placed trees and doodads on the pathing grid: full-cell Medium Grid to half-cell Medium Grid alternate
    Removed the rolling shoreline waves from rolling hills to remove the noise the waves created - remains for cliff shores

List of 1 v 1 maps

    1 v 1 Map Pool (New)

List of 2 v 2 maps

Warcraft III News / WC3 Patch 1.28.5 is now live
« on: July 06, 2017, 07:27:36 PM »

Related Topics or Resources

Hello again my dear Blizzmodders!!!

Today, Blizzard offers to the community a new patch with some bug fixes needed so desperately, at least in terms of the modding community.

Hail Warchiefs,

Patch 1.28.5 is live. Our focus is on shoring up the last few significant 1.28 issues:

Bug Fixes

    File paths and user names think more globally in game and World Editor
    World Editor properly imports custom assets again
    Switching between Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne no longer causes a crash

Classic Games

Among all the changes made in this patch, there's one that is very important for modding and is the restoration of the import functionality. Now you can add again custom models, skins and other WC3 resources. Let's hop e they don't keep fixing one thing by screwing up two. According to the few posts from the community, it seems the patching way in this game is moving (at last) in the right direction.

As always, the screen shot for evidence :)

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.

  • New installers available for PC and Mac
Ok, great...
  • 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.
  • Toggle added to main menu to switch between Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne
Something great :)
  • 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.


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).

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:
Quote from: Matt Morris, Developer
May 11

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.



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.



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...

Warcraft III News / Patch 1.28.2, fixing more stuff... great :D

Hello Blizzmodders!!

Today has arrived a new patch, with new fixes with unclear description, but... who cares, it's WC3 being updated!!!


Bug Fixes

    Wetlands map added back to the map pool data
    Raise Dead ability no longer desyncs players in a game between Windows and OSX
    WorldEdit’s Test Map function will write unsaved maps to %APPDATA%\Temp
    Aspect ratio checkbox available in Polish again
    Fixed a crash on Mac when displaying the CD Key dialog in the Russian, Polish, Korean, Traditional Chinese, or Simplified Chinese

Known Issues

    If the error, “Something went wrong...” while patching occurs, run “Warcraft III Launcher.exe” within the installation directory to complete the update
    During XP installation, if the error, “Cannot validate version” occurs, run “Warcraft III Launcher.exe” within the installation directory to complete the update
    Tabbing out of the game doesn’t mute game sounds
    The Mac client is having some problems playing audio files that will be addressed in a future patch

Hello fellow Blizzmodders:

WC3 definitely has a new patch, fixing a previous one which brought to the modding community confusion and chaos.

Hmm, now that I'm thinking, I didn't post anything about the previous patch.... sorry. Pathc 1.28, for the few people that didnt' get noticed about this change, was the first attempt to upgrade the game into the current blizzard patch system, in which you can have full or partial updates in the file structure of the game. This brought to us some inconveniences, among them, the failure of JNGP in working properly on this.

With this patch, they solved an indirect issue with the orderID in the object editor, this could cause that custom maps could fail or bug in the game.

Now what's the future of JNGP? well, the only way to get it working is to update the system from scratch, Grimoire is old and with this new regular upgrade tendency we have to think in new ways to achieve our improvements adapting them to the new features offered by Blizzard.

I'll be working on the new version of JNGP, but the progress is very slow. I just want to get this working properly and when I get something stable enough, I'll offer the new tool to the public. Thanks for understanding.

In the meanwhile, let's see the information.

And, I took the risk to offer an introductory video about how to upgrade to this mess called upgrading WC3 to patch 1.28. You will hear my terrific voice and all (including my impressions about the patch). Please bear with my bad English.



Site News & Updates / Happy New Year 2017 From Blizzmod!!!
« on: December 31, 2016, 10:50:55 PM »

Hello my fellow Blizzmoders:

I wish to send you a huge wishes and expecting that your projects in the upcoming 2017 will be successful. I hope the best to happen in your life for all of you.

This year in Warcraft III has been a little bit odd, more or less good for us. Appearing a new patch (2 times) in this year is proving that Blizzard Entertainment is thinking in the WC3 community and it has been a great push to continue or advance in new map projects. The big change in the possibility to play larger maps in file size (~128MB) opens possibilities to new ideas.

But the latest patch (1.27b) put us into a new challenge in terms of advanced modding using JNGP, because now the update comes with new features in the editor, something not seen since a long time. I'm working in overcoming this, with the risk of changing the way JNGP always has worked on. It's probably we have to lose some features (USMWE) temporally in order to adapt it into the new conditions offered in the game.

I'll do a last update of JNGP in order to make it functional with the latest patch, but a harder work is being done in order to adapt the current techniques into a more efficient and flexible tool than JNGP itself. Please just stay tuned.

    Blizzard has made it again!!! Warcraft III Patch 1.27b is now live!!!

    Hello my fellow Blizzmodders:

    Blizzard Entertainment is really decided to change the perspectives with Warcraft III, this year we faced the arrival of patch 1.27 after several, several.... and several years without thinking in this community. And now, some months ago we have a new patch in the process. Now we need to say: WOOOWW.

    It's great that Blizzard is thinking in us, and the new features were not clear at the beginning of the upgrade process in the BNet servers, but now, they have clarified some of them:

    • Specific Changes & Improvements: Not totally clear... simple phrase that implies the obvious...

    • Bug fixes and General Maintenance: more obviousness.... more blabla....

    • Raised file size limit from 8mb to 128mb: That's a big, big great thing!!!!! For a very long time, one of the most desired wishes in WC3 mapping and modding community was the override of this limitation. In 2003 with the still bipping modems connections thinking in maps bigger than 8MB was a considerable and necessary limitation, but now with LAN connections this thing became into a restriction for greater ideas. This will definitely open opportunities to bigger map projects and raise the development in this platform into a new paradigm. Well done Blizzard  :) !!!

    • Added Script Verify to World Editor: WHAT!!!!!!! let's read again.... WHAAAAAT!!!!!! Yes and definitely yes: they are thinking in jassers (I still can't believe it), they've implemented something like a native PJASS to the editor to check script errors, YAY!!!!..... but... it's a shame it comes too late, and the worst thing is that it only checks the written code in triggers instead of the compiled code. This for vJASSERS is again... USELESS. Nice try Blizzard, we recognize your effort  ;D

      Hmmm, shiny and sparky button...

      But it could help to GUIers to understand JASS in a vanilla way.... hmmm...

    • Custom blp files will no longer crash on Mac: Well, this is something nice to hear from the development team behind WC3, this annoying bug in MAC limited these Apple guys to play custom maps with customs BLPs, crashing the game experience. For this, we just have to say thanks BLizzard  ;)

    With this we have to recognize the interest in Blizzard in retake an audience which have been loyal to WC3, a community which has waited for a long time to be heard and this wait is bringing a a good outcome. Big hugs to the WC3 community!!!

    The 1.27b patch and JNGP.

    Now, what's the coming evolution in the Warcraft III gaming community, I feel the development could arise again, showing new opportunities to old ideas gone for the map size limitations. This brings a new hope and fuel the mapping tradition behind WC3. About JNGP, now I have to put work again to check any incompatibilities or bugs for the new patch. If you find something, please report it in the official thread and help bring the opportunity to make great maps (literally) again!!

    Now let's hear your thoughts about this nice moment. Don't forget to share :)

    "JNGP 2.0.9"
    Fellow WC3 modders & mappers:

    It's an honor to announce the release of the new version of JNGP: 2.0.9. With this new pack, I've added the most recent mods for WE and other features that will help you in the mapping process.

    Among the main features added in this version, we can find the new WC3 patcher, which allows to set your WC3 installation in any version different from 1.27, this is needed to allow multiplayer emulation to work properly.

    Some tools has been updated to the latest version:

    With this new updates and features, I hope the community continue in this funny hobby and I'm really expectating that you enjoy this new pack.

    As always... BIG HUGSSS!!!!!
