Hex will no longer provide a speed boost to a Hero if cast at the end of Metamorphosis or Chemical Rage effects.
Reverted the 1.25b fix, "Hex will no longer extend the duration of Metamorphosis."
Fixed an issue where some Mac patches could lead to disconnections during Battle.net games.

What's with these updates for all of a sudden, and still I didn't notice any flaws yet to my Warcraft III from the updates so yeah.

I'm again having the problem where I can't run the updater without first reinstalling WC3. Never had the problem before 1.25b. Ah well, no WC3 for me until they release the standalone...

Maybe they've decided they like the Warcraft III community again?

I doubt that. They've probably remembered that SC2 modding sucks so they're trying to keep WC3 afloat.

Macs were having a bunch of disconnects when playing, so they fixed that with this patch.

Well I'm glad, that I have Windows 7 then. LOL...
Well anyway don't see any flaws yet for Warcraft III, but still happy that they are making patches for it. :3

I hope that they'll make an update which boosts the capabilities of wc3 and the WE without sacrificing anything... ^_^

Good job on the random patching Blizzard.
They still forgot to patch out the loophack and the security flaw.

Nothing special again... this should have been 1.25b, not 1.26.. and what's with no dangerous exploit thing fixing?

Hmm, maybe they'll do 1.27 soon, and add something new to the game.

They couldn't have thrown in some simple editor changes as well?

Another stupid patch.
This should be minor, at least 1.25c or something.
Why they released a such major version with minor updates?
And lol, looks like 1.27 coming fast.

Moin moin -_-

A simple question: Is Blizzard stupid? =O

For real, they made a patch, to fix stuff from the last patch? And how this continue? 1.26b to fix issues of 1.26?

Hmm anyway, for now I will stay on 1.24e, because it's the most played version on Garena, since Battle.Net sux since bot hosting is the trend.

Well, nevermind, I got it to work; I think my maps folder was too big. The patch worked after I moved everything out.

Wow! that was so fast! like Speed Stack fast! I guess Blizzard is still reminding us that Warcraft III was there best priority game ever, which reminds me, how come they made 2 patches about the game's abilities but didn't apply any new updates for the World Editor? even though they don't support that program and all, I hope they can add little tweeks for it :cgrin:

EDIT:

you don't need to play all patches, it only depends on how you play the game or new maps.
I still use 1.24E because that is the only patch that is stable in my country and no one plays melee maps anymore, only special maps and additional programming stuff.

Now, seeing that someone can't update WC3, I thought I'd post the way I solved it.

First, try to run as administrator.

You probably transferred WC3 with a flash drive or such if you have this error, now, you did not inform your computer that you had something installed in your folder, as it originally was in another folder at the computer you installed it on.

There are several solutions:

Move the Wc3 folder to the place where it was on the computer you transferred it from (Make sure the folders are with the same names) .

Or

Go to this site and do what it says: InstallPath (http://maged.lordaeron.org/WC3InstallPath.php)

IMO these new updates are pretty much useless, mostly to keep the melee game play more balanced whilst hardly adding fixes and updates to the editor.

:as::as: Many thank for your help...I just started map editor ... I think if Blizzard created a tool to convert map version, then things will be easier ... I think so

there's no need for map version conversion since maps are usually playable on higher versions...

Few more things to know:

- You won't be able to join to game (hosted with this patch) with earlier version of wc3.

Notes:

If you only have Reign of Chaos installed, you will only need to download and run the Reign of Chaos Patch. If you have the Frozen Throne expansion pack installed as well, you will only need the Frozen Throne patch.

If your game is already patched to version 1.25b, you will only have to install the upgrade patch version 1.25b to 1.26a. You can verify what version your game is by starting it up and looking at the bottom right hand corner. If you recently installed/reinstalled the game or have not patched the game in some time, you will want to download and install the Full 1.26a Universal Patch.

If you are looking for older version patches please visit the Blizzard FTP site (http://ftp.blizzard.com/pub/).

Reign of Chaos Patch:

Hmm, maybe they'll do 1.27 soon, and add something new to the game.

You guys are begging for your own pop system aren't you? During an interview Blizzard stated they may change up starcraft and warcraft battle nets to fit the new theme. Cant recall what it was, but I fear a popularity system is coming for wc3. If anything, the idea is to leash DoTA. Cheers, popularity systems for all!

I've downloaded it already, and I have to say somehow it makes my ladder experience slightly better(:
Also, once Blizzard releases the next patch (If it increases the file size limit), every single person on every server (Hamachi, Battle.Net, Garena, etc.) will definitely update it.

As far as I know, BattleNet 2.0 is working fine for WoW players and will be fine for D3 where there is only 1 game to play.

Battlenet 2.0 in SC2 is fine, with 1 exception. It needs a "Waiting for Players" list and thats all. Baiscally a list where it shows all games where there are players wanting to play yet not enough players for a full house. Further more the list should be in reverse popularity order and shuffled to a degree (as the games being played can be joined and found via the popularity list). This would make it perfect as anyone who wants to try something else and let games fill easilly.
