    Corrected the question.
    I`m WinXP SP3 and Warcraft3 is 1.26.0.6401. In advance:
    -Going to use only 1.26-1.28 versions.
    -ONLY solo, NOT for Bnet
    So dont you forget this when replying please.

    So, i want to combine some ONLY 1.26-1.28 with, as i noticed, with some "comfortable, more features etc" editor like WEX or smth. (if there is considering below):

    1. NO codewriting programms please. For ex. native is simple in use: with hints below, easy to figure out how to make what you want, i mean mostly just "clicking" commands.

    2. Being 1.26, i wonder if it makes sense to have some 1.27-1.28 !!!. Or is it ok with it. Example:1.28 has no ingame like more tools, improvments, items etc added or it has the same as 1.26 then i dont need it.

    3. I beg of you, no complications with side programms. Only 100% working things, with NO proviso. Install, use/play.

    4. I notice WEX`likes only get updated, so would be nice to have some older ones.

    Jass New Gen Pack is your best alternative to WEX in 1.26 and the likes. Some of the newer unit natives in 1.29 are similar to BonusMod by Earth-Fury (get it in Custom Stat System by Doomlord).

    You can get the 1.5 version on this site or go to blizzmod for JNGP 2.0

    DONE with it. Thanks to pyf, i found that 1.26 is just nice.

    NOTE: i only need such WEX/JNGP likes ONLY if they somehow improve/add smth the native editor itself. im not going to code at all. Thank you

    JNGP provides modder with necessary QoL such as limit breaks. If it's only for game oriented stuff, I recall RenderEdge is a good thing to have for older patches.

    For widescreen support only, please use the widescreen fix by @ENAleksey
    [RenderEdge] Widescreen Fix

    A previous, alternate method to have 16:9 support ingame (but for 1.26a *only*) is to use the D3D8.dll file by @ZUKMAN. You may use it with third-party tweaks to hopefully improve the widescreen experience overall.
    - Ingame / cinematics screen in 16/9 for WC3 *1.26a* (thanks to ZUKMAN's dll)
    - 3D Opening Screens / Campaign Screens in 16:9
    - Animated 3D portraits in 16/9

    I personally like the animated trees by @oger-lord, from the Warcraft 3 HQ thread:
    Warcraft 3 HQ
    (there is also an archive, with reg files to easily enable/disable local files)

    I understand that terrainers will want an updated miscdata.txt file:
    For those just starting to terrain.

    To overcome the 8MB barrier for maps in 1.26a and 1.27a, please use this file by @karaulov:
    Warcraft III bypass map file size limit. [ver.6]

    For 1.26a, there is a nice Camera Hack.rar archive somewhere on the web.

    Also for 1.26a, there is a nice ManaBars.rar archive somewhere on the web.


    For replay compatibility, please use ReplayKit. The last version which works on XP is v1.22 currently, because NierenSchredder kept making a mistake afterwards when he compiles his source code
    - ReplayKit v1.28 - Browse /Old Releases at SourceForge.net
    (do not forget to download the ReplayKitPatch.mpq file as well)
    - ReplayKit - Watch replays from ALL patches without annoying map path problems
    (official thread)


    Should be a good start, to make the most out of the recent versions of Warcraft which work on Windows XP currently

    I personally consider that v1.26a is to be preferred over the 1.27.x ones for the casual XP gamer who wants to play the campaigns. All because of the ambient sounds, which were cut off since v1.27a.

    Damn You, I`m so Thankful. Very understanding of how to help noobies. You like knew i use square monitor:) I sold widescreen, my eyes just got one to the Moon one to the Mars, damn it. I will use all these links with pleasure.
    This made me sure for good that 1.26 is very fine.

    May Reaper bless you!!

    You're welcome.


    Fun fact: if one combines v1.26a with:
    - d3d8.dll (v3)
    - GameDll_fix_mapsize_limit.mix (v6)
    - Camera Hack.mixtape
    - ManaBars.mixtape
    ..., then one should get what he/she might be currently vehemently be asking for on the Battle.net forums. That is, decent non-stretched 16:9 ingame screen, no "compressed graphics", no "pillars" and no "black bars", plus adjustable camera view distance on-the-fly.


    With d3d8.dll, you will quickly notice that the cursor position does not match the clickable zone, as the distance from the center of the screen increases. Well, this issue never prevented me from beating the game.

    Should the stretching of the different cursors for the four races annoy you, you can 'counter-stretch' their MDXs by making them narrower, so that they will display with the correct aspect ratio when you are playing the game. The four files to tweak are:
    - UI\Cursor\HumanCursor.mdx
    - UI\Cursor\NightElfCursor.mdx
    - UI\Cursor\OrcCursor.mdx
    - UI\Cursor\UndeadCursor.mdx

    You can also tweak the MDXs of the logos for RoC and TFT the same way:
    - UI\Glues\MainMenu\WarCraftIIILogo\WarCraftIIILogo.mdx
    - UI\Glues\MainMenu\WarCraftIIILogo_exp\WarCraftIIILogo_exp.mdx


    For the sake of completeness:

    I`m examining every single point you have provided these days, since i`m noob/new to such things.

    Since you are using a 4:3 monitor, you may skip everything related to widescreen support.

    Please try one thing at a time, and do not hesitate to ask questions.
    I am targeting version 1.26a of the game.
