    This extension package features a zipped folder that aims to enhance the game with dozens of new assets and audio files.

    This package is only compatible to Gaias Retaliation version 1.2C or higher.


    Features:
    • Voice acted quest dialogues (currently about 50% of the quests)
    • Custom Music (Special thanks to Jumbo)


    Installation:
    1. Download the extension folder here: (Mirror #1)
    2. Extract it with the decompression tool of your choice (for example 7-Zip)
    3. Drop the "GaiasRetaliation" folder into CustomMapData of your Warcraft III directory (merge if the folder already exists)
    4. If you already have local file support enabled; you can skip all remaining instructions
    5. When running a windows machine; go back to your desktop and enter "regedit" into the file search bar
    6. execute "regedit.exe".
    7. In the registry editor, unfold "HKEY_CURRENT_USER".
    8. unfold "SOFTWARE" -> "Blizzard Entertainment" -> "Warcraft III"
    9. Make sure the "Warcraft III" unfold is selected; a list of files will appear on the right side
    10. Right-click on the space and select Create - DWORD (32 bit)
    11. Enter Name As: "Allow Local Files"
    12. And Value As: 00000001

    The game will now automaticly recognize the existance of this folder and adapt automaticly, no matter if you play in Singleplayer or Multiplayer (or Bnet). No further setup is required.

    Note: This package will have no effect on other maps or the Warcraft III game itself. It will only load from within a Gaias Retaliation game.

    Congratulations, you are now one of the cool kids!

    Download link now available for this. However, I had to remove the highres textures component due to technical problems.
    I hope I will eventually find a solution to fix this.

    It's still worth it for the voice acting, custom music and intro!

    Yea, just finished watching it too. Damn great! The voice acting on the intro could use a little work. The acting is good by itself, but needs some effect in my opinion. Maybe some reverb is in order to make it sound more epic. I think looking at the intro for Warcraft 1 & 2 would be a good idea. The narration there is similar, but has a more polished and epic feel to the narrator. The artwork itself is impressive and I am honored to be mentioned in the credits :).

    Updated the map to 1.2B(2), fixing a desync issue with the extension pack.

    oh, Im playing with Kamina atm. Whats your game name name? We are on Europe. By the way Zwieb, noticed that the pitch on the soundtrack is off =/

    EDIT: We want to play with you. Can you please tell us the game name? :) As I said, we are on Europe so hosting bot or telling us which server you are on would be appreciated. I cant join West atm due to some hacker idiot stealing my serial key and using it there.

    The music is currently not working as intended, due to a wrong version being uploaded to the pack. It was the old version with changed music pitches. I advice anyone who wants to use the music aspect of the extension to download the newest version of the Music Addon from its own thread and use those files to overwrite the Extension pack ones.

    Why dont you add an "EnableLocalFiles.reg" with:
    A double klick on that file would replace steps 4-12.

    I don't know... it's a certain habit of mine... I don't like stuff that does... stuff without my knowing. Editing the registry manually gives you a bit more understanding of the matter and add a bit of trustworthyness as you know how to revert the change again if you wished to.

    The download link for the map extension no longer works at the moment. When I tried it I received this following error. Is there any other place that would be more convenient for downloading you can place this at that wont cut people off for downloading it if too many people try to get it?

    Muzzel is negotiating with Ralle for increased pastebin storage. :)
    Until then, maybe people can mirror the zip on other platforms?

    PS: you gotta admit that error page is cute, though. :p
