    I tested it, it works. You should improve the description, make it more understandable and professional. Fix the grammar also. +Reputation :)

    Thank you for making this.

    Indeed, the installation instructions are too short and confusing for an inexperienced user.

    I've updated the installation guide, now better?

    If not, offer your own version, I'm not really good at english language :)

    Is there any difference between those two files by the way? 1 MB and 8 MB?

    I really recommend people to you this one, I will request a moderator to delete my uploaded. This one doesn't need any replacing and is very compact and simple.

    I play Warcraft 1.26a and I don't remember what restrictions on the size were in old versions. (I didn't install old versions of Warcraft)

    1 Mb sets the maximum size in 1 Mb, or 8 Mb for restriction on 8 Mb.



    If the limitation on all versions of Warcraft is 8MB, I can delete file ...1mb.mix.

    I think that previously before some patch it was 4 MB, now it is 8 MB. There never was 1 MB.

    1.24 rised the limit from 4MB to 8MB.

    Raichu you should alter the check so that
    if size > 4MB return 4MB
    So you have only one file for all versions of wc3.

    Also the installation is not clear. It can't be enough to copy it in the wc3 folder, right?
    What is a .mix file type?
    Do you need this? If yes you do not mention it directly, which you should.

    One more concern would be that this interferes on a global level in Windows, right? So not only other calls coming from wc3 will use this but everything on Windows calling it..

    I am very inexperienced in .dll stuff, so please correct my mistakes or confirm my assumptions.

    You can see from the screenshot that Warcraft will think that there is no "w3x and w3m" files larger than 8 MB.

    .flt .mix .m3d .asi - is DLL files that are are automatically loaded via mss http://www.radgametools.com/jp/mssgames.htm

    To install just move the file to folder with Warcraft III


    I added a readme.txt file in the archive. And bypassing limit for 1.23 and below.

    Yes it is that simple. Just move the .mix file to the game folder and it will work for that user only.

    It was 1.24 not 1.23. :)

    Good thing to remove the limit, bad thing to get through d3scene and something like "shouldn't be detected".
    It is a HACKING community which I highly disapprove. And I suppose hive does not approve them as well.
    Maybe get some neutral website for it?

    This is not a hack, it contains no viruses. Its a mix file just as he said, .mix files load as additional .dll.

    I'm not saying that it is a virus.
    But when you make any modification to the original files its a hack, no? lol. Not saying that this hack is bad.
    Anyway. All I wanted to point out is that D3Scene is not a good website to advertise here.

    I really appreciate the work put into this because I really was searching for a long time to bypass the map limit.

    I don't advertize anything.
    This is not a hack (does not affect gameplay)
    Game files don't change, only the GetFileSize function in Kernel32.dll is intercepted.

    Inside your readme:

    Maybe change it to a more non-hacking friendly website, or only let Extreme Injector in it?

    You dont have to do any of the useless advanced stuff. If you want to remove the limit, simply put the .mix file to main folder of War3.

    I tired it on Garena. It is indeed not recognized as hack. However, when people (random people, not those who have this also installed) finish downloading my 11mb map, they get autokicked.

    Still a great tool tho, but (as expected) all parties have to have it in order for it to work.
