    Some neat trick for that graphic bug in old games is closing explore with taskmanager. And starting the game than with the option "File - new task".

    Nice Game, but the Audio of video-sequences seem to be unfinished.

    Out of curiosity, which solution did you use, and what is your OS?

    Well this is somewhat disappointing. I remember getting extremely hyped when I watched the original trailer decades ago, it looked much darker and more serious, and the final product is very light-hearted. But better late than never I guess...

    I don't think so. By the way, are you going to do a let's play on Youtube on it?

    To those wondering about why Blizzard cares about an 18 year old game enough to remove it:

    A company must make noticeable consistent efforts to protect IP or they may eventually lose their rights to it. This is across all industries. In this case I highly doubt it is a decision out of greed, or an indication that they are going to develop the game further. An example of this is how everyone calls tissues kleenex because Kleenex brand did not make sufficient efforts to distinguish the two and protect it's trademark. While Blizzard failing to protect this old game is hardly going to jeopardize their franchise rights courts look for consistency. Here are some common examples.

    As far as graphics goes of course this game would be better with modern graphics. I think it is a shame that some people ignore games because of outdated graphics. For instance Morrowind has one of the most developed story-lines I've ever played and I highly recommend it, but even with mods it will still appear out of date. The Warcraft III campaign is outstanding, as is the AoE II campaign.

    Who cares. If they're not going to release the game, why keep it off the hands of fans? They could at least make a deal. Say, you buy Warcraft III or something in the next year(s) and you also get Warcraft Adventures. I don't know... there are possibilities.

    I would love to hope they have some plans for releasing it publicly. Just seems such a shame.

    The game was cancelled for a reason, what company would like others to play or use their unfinished or cancelled products? Impressions are everything. Warcraft Adventures download link was taken down because it was leaked without permission or consent of Blizzard, that's why it got copyright infringement.

    Does it matter? As long as they don't lose anything but even maybe feed the fans. What, you think nobody would play Warcraft anymore if they don't like Warcraft Adventures? More than that, what can people do with that game? Can they exploit it somehow? I doubt it'd be different than any pirated game. Bottom line is, illegal or not, a cancelled game had a chance to spark something good up.
    Please, Blizzard is beyond that. It's so understandable, that an unfinished game cannot be considered a company's true image.
    That's true. They didn't even try giving hope either.
