    though i haven't used it with other players mainly cuz im on bnet and no bot uses this mod, but works great to surpass the limit :D

    THE LIMIT DOES NOT EXIST

    I don't think you have to do all that. The only thing that I did was put the GameDll_fix_mapsize_limit_v4.mix file into my Warcraf III directory and it worked. wc3 runs it auto

    But if it doesn't work with the first method then put it in a folder. If the auto method doesn't work.

    I found a small mistake in the code, is case sensitive! (file extension must be .w3x with case sensitive)

    Or use method 2. (Put in a folder with the game any file with the name "forcefixsizelimit").

    you should ask blizzard to include it in warcraft 3 through a patch so that everybody can use it. if it autokicks anybody that joins without it it does cause issues.

    I have a little problem with this patch. When map have more than 8MB it auto kick me when i reach 100% (it download 8MB and no more). 2nd problem is that i cant join map 8MB+ from ENT when i saw some players do that. Whats the reason? I need older ver.? I play from b.net, and one of player which recommend me this patch do that too, and he can play at ent 8MB+.

    Have you modified your Warcraft installation? What is your ping? What kind of map are you trying to play? If you can't download it via Battle.Net then do it manually.

    Did you install this bypasser correctly? And lastly, what is your War3 ver? Carefully read the installation instructions. Is the map extension ".w3x" ???
