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).

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.
