    I saw Warcraft III Advanced Video Settings Configurator, but it doesn't work for me. Any other ideas?(registry is wrong too)

    Not sure WC3 game engine was designed to work at anything but 60 FPS. When I last tried it caused the game to perform very badly (sub 30 FPS). Actual game state updates every 0.03 second, at least for unit facing.

    I just reinstalled W3, and it's performing very badly for me now, it's lower than 30 fps now I think.

    Use regedit to delete the WC3 video settings. Next time the game is started it resets the video settings to default. From the main menu set the visual quality to maximum as it often defaults to low.

    There is something known as Google... Seeing how this is pretty common knowledge.

    WC3C has a post that mentions where the settings are.
