    It might also be an issue with your Anti-virus or firewall. Hard to say at this point.

    Can anyone upload the zip file somewhere else? Even a Google Drive... I can't access the file from mediafire, every time it starts downloading it goes good for 15 minutes then network error, and I've downloaded plenty of other stuff today so it's either not on my end or its some issue specific with mediafire.

    I really would love to have this.

    Oh and when this happens gameranger crashes as well, but only if and when I try to download this, strangest thing in the world.

    Hi all.

    I am also having the same problem as Cylian.

    I am using Windows 7. I have the latest Gaias map and I just downloaded the extension pack. I am sure that I followed all of the instructions in downloading the extension pack. However, I can't see the cinematic and I can't see the option to see it after choosing a new hero. I play Gaias on Battle.net by myself. My version of WC3 ROC and TFT is the digital copy that I purchased from the Blizzard Online Store. It has the latest patch and I'm able to run Gaias smoothly.

    I am not familiar with all of this coding and extracting of files, but I am very sure that I did this correct. I am able to play custom sounds and music within the files from the extension pack. I would appreciate any feedback or some type of advice in getting it to work. I love this game and it would be awesome to experience the new, great things the extension pack has to offer. :)

    Here is a screenshot of the directory and regedit:

    Thank you!

    Again: the cinematic can only be watched with 4 or less players in the game, due to some technical limitations.

    I have an idea on how to change this, but this will come in a future update.

    I tested it on single player, local area network, and Battle.net and it didn't work. I usually play by myself so that shouldn't be the problem.

    This is planned for a future update to the extension package (along with new music, of course), although only available for the hero skins.

    I've found a method to localize the hero textures without desyncs and still have the (double resolution) raw files of the hero skins that Daenar7 made for me. These can and will be included as soon as I have the time for a new extension package release.

    Sometimes when someone has extension ppl get stuck on load. Loading takes like several minutes and u can't move after that. Last time we had waited for 13 minutes and it hasn't became playable.
    Anyway very good job, I love that custom music and dialogs.

    This is due to synchronizing.
    Will be gone in the next update, as I found a different solution to the problem, that doesn't require synchronizing.

    Same shit happened but no one now had extension. Can it happen cuz of syncing even w/o plugin?

    How many players were in the game? That's the only thing that matters. The syncing only happens up until 4 players, when the syncing time (at reasonable ping rates) will be rather shot. Beyond that, no syncing happens anymore.

    There were 3 players (including me), 1 got crash or desync at start, I don't remember. Well, we had small (I think) ping and it was quite long.

    I'm willing to bet that this had nothing to do with the syncing then.

    Every time tere is someone with expansion and we r playing on Gaiashostbot we get extreme delay for 15-20 mins n then I decide to leave cause it doesnt seems to fix itself...we r talking bout 1 movement command being done by the hero after 2-5 mins of waiting... waiting for load to complete after 5-10 mins.However such prob doesnt happen in MMH games

    Not true, by the way u played with me having extension and sometimes it was OK, we played with other guys extensions and it was also OK. And last time we got shit no one had extension. Well at least I didn't have and I don't think that guy having a graphics crash had.
