    Not really much of an update, i'm surprised it was enough to merit a patch really, oh well.

    You forgot to add that they've fixed all the lame WE bugs, and added several new natives based on player feedback.

    Of course they didn't. Seriously, I actually thought this patch might have been useful at first. I'm actually surprised this patch failed to perform a service to DotA.

    The new patch is bugged!!!

    1. After I installed it and join battle.net game crashes :(
    2cond start it didnĀ“t crashes but it laggs now
    3third start now without laggs

    2. FIXES:

    Quote:
    - Fixed an exploit where an altered custom map would be seen identical to
    the original custom map.

    The biggest (bug) problem. Now after the patch i looked in my warcraft 3 downloads(not the blizzard download folder! Takes later an important role!) folder and ca. 50% of my maps are not shown. Omg are the deleted? No!

    Answer: Quote: Fixed an exploit where an altered custom map would be seen identical to the original custom map.
    This means translated that f.ex. if you have 3 10 Hero Siege maps in your folder that 2 of them will not shown because they start with the same words. :(

    But you can fix this problem easily if you take all your custom maps from your f.ex. your downloads folder or another kind of self-created wc 3 folder with wc 3 custom maps in the download folder of blizzard(You get the download folder auto. if you have ever played an custom map). In this folder all maps include with the same starting letters are all shown!

    GL & HF with your new patch

    Not really worth the update IMO. I think they compiled this in 5 minutes just to keep WC3 alive over there.

    Oh boy! Did we wait so long to get a banner ad system? As Khaine suggested, the map fix is completely useless. I don't have an Intel Mac so I don't really care whether it's supported or no :p. Honestly, why should we apply it?

    Not such a huge update, I thought. But hey, at least they're still working on it ;).

    {EDIT}
    Yeah, the WE exe was fucked up for me too. I had to use my old worldedit.exe which you should have saved :p

    I just wish this game became open-source. Why not? Eventually nobody'll be using it and it'd be a great template for indie games.
