      So, I see that The Hive Workshop is now giving the thumbs up to links leading to GameCopyWorld?...
      When will this *insanity* finally end?!

      Personally, any site name change (be it real or implied) like Hive:Underground or Hive2Scene (note: its old version, fyi) does not appeal to me.

      Blizzard *must* be strongly and *positively* encouraged to make only a few more full standalone versions of WC3 (incl. those from the 1.28.0 -> 1.31.1 era) available for download/installation for everyone, in any supported language and for any supported OS, preferably without a Battle.net account and at no charge, for those who want any of them. Ideally for everybody, Blizzard themselves would have fixed those few versions, so they do not interfere in any way with v1.32.8 >

      The Hive Workshop *can* and *should* be the positive force to make it happen, and instead we are indulging ourselves in *THAT?!*

        FeelsGoodMan: "A "test" would be silly from Blizzard's point of view."
        I do not think so. Maybe they are indecisive about something, and they are overcautious.

        I agree with you that v1.32 was released in an incomplete state. I personally think the Classic Team was themselves dissatisfied with the product that shipped, and I am even wondering if the release of 1.27a could not be some kind of act of rebellion. Hey, why not?

        A full 1.31 version directly available from Blizzard would spare you the trouble of spreading it yourself.
        ;D

        (cont'd)

        Having previous versions of the game allows for other possibilities. For example, with 1.27 combined with ReplayKit one can use replay archives. Unless of course 1.31 is still compatible with such replays?

        It has been known since a long time that by saving a map to, say, 1.31, compatibility may not be guaranteed with previous versions. It is up to anybody to decide how compatible they want their maps to be.

        Personally, I am waiting for 1.32 to get debloated, for those like me who did not pay for any 3D assets. Also, bringing back DX9 compatibility could help immensely many people, as not everybody wants to buy new hardware in order to run a video game, especially from version to version. It may be one of the reasons some prefer older versions of the game as well. Hey after all, one of the reasons which made WC3 a success in 2002 was its below than average system requirements by 2002 standards...

        So, you want progression on the same primitive foundation.
        You have 1.27. Why force them to keep compatibility for newer versions as well? Does any sane company do that? One thing is preserving like with GoG releases that might get some fix updates now and then and another to constantly patch and ensure the newest version would work on 286s.

        Yeah, that is very fit imho.

        I also like the fact that the hero that will rise amidst the chaos is also a loving father (cf the 2nd video). All in all, very appropriate and maybe up to the point imho.

        Anyone can do it to anyone. Funnily enough I don't recall anyone ever doing it to me. You can enable 2-factor on your account though if you're worried. I have it enabled on mine. It's required for all admins if they want to use the Admin CP.

      Hey man, would you please make the search engine allow the selection of the year without needing to frantically press the left/right arrows on the calendar?
      Also, you can't choose a temporal range to search in and you always get the newest posts first and if you want to go back, you can only go 10 pages at a time and have to click on the show older results after each 10 pages :\

      Things haven't been so well the past few weeks. RSI issues have caught up with me, so I aim to keep my computer related hobbies to a minimum until I get better... It's really frustrating but I am not resting on laurels. I do exercises given by my a physiotherapist and try to be more aware of my posture... But it's hard.

        Thanks Togra. You are always so thoughtful. Suffering for this for 12 years on and off, I have a quite comfortable setup. I don't have split keyboard or vertical mouse because my issues reside with my neck and forward head posture, not wrist problems... yet. Thanks anyway though.

      Hi, how're you doing? I hope, good, real good!

      "From narrow provinces
      of fish and bread and tea,
      home of the long tides
      where the bay leaves the sea
      twice a day and takes
      the herrings long rides,

      where if the river
      enters or retreats
      in a wall of brown foam
      depends on if it meets
      the bay coming in,

      Ralle, is the icons from Hive usable for educational games?

        I recently asked him a question regarding the usage of icons in video games and he replied:
        "If you aren't making any money, I think it's pretty safe to do so. Just remember to give credit. Otherwise, you'll have to be careful about the WC3 border on the icons (it belongs to Blizzard) but you might also want to check with the authors." - Ralle, The Moose

        You are very welcome.
        Yes, the border is the problem and also you need permission from the author of the icons if you want to make money from that game.
