I had no idea...
If they would also make the multiplayer more than 1v1. That would be amazing.
I never played the game "Sex on the Beach", So I don't know whether it was pornographic or just meant to be funny or ironic or something. I honestly don't really know anything about it, I just brought it up because I thought it was relevant. I could see people trolling by bringing people in due to the title and then letting them down, but idk anything about it. Really I don't even know if it was taken down, or if the name was just changed. But it was up for several days I think, I would have thought that it would have been taken down earlier if it was really pornographic.
I do agree that would be awesome if Warcraft 1 & 2 were available for download off the blizzard site (for free or not for free), although I don't think they work on modern computers so maybe that makes it difficult to do.
Warcraft II works on Win7 with the latest patch.
It works on Windows 10 and worked before 1.27 on both win 10 and 7.
Warcraft: Orcs & Humans (1994) is a diskette and CD-ROM MS-DOS game. Warcraft II (1995) is a CD-ROM only MS-DOS game. Therefore, both should run in DOSBox.
Also, a modern cross-platform RTS game engine such as Stratagus can use the converted games' assets. But it is not the original 'Warcraft experience' anymore imho.
(more or less back on topic): Should Blizzard make these two classic DOS games freely available for download, they would still be unsupported. I also doubt such a release would attract new players / map makers / modders. They would quickly develop maps / mods for Wargus instead, but not for very long imho.
Warcraft II BNE (Battle.net Edition, 1999) is a Windows-only CD-ROM game. Latest patch is 2.02. It is my guess it does not remove the CD-Check, because Blizzard has no plans for any WCII:BNE digital download afaik (same goes with Diablo, btw).
