    @Kacpa2 : I wanted to demonstrate that widescreen resolutions do not necessarily give the player an unfair advantage by showing more terrain. In fact, if one looks closely, using the D3D8 dll by @ZUKMAN actually leads to showing *less* terrain. For the record, this also leads to minor visual annoyances when watching the campaigns' cutscenes / interludes, because the top and bottom of the display become slightly cropped. Therefore, the heads of some characters on some cinematics are half-chopped in the process.

    The 4:3 screenshot is in 800x600, because it is the minimum resolution the game was playable at in 2002 on a CRT monitor. In 640x480 the text is simply not legible, because of one of the main fonts Blizzard chose to display text / dialogue. For the record, it is my belief that 800x600 is the resolution Blizzard had in mind when they were first developing the game in 1998.

    I agree that 1280x768 is not 16:9; a resolution of 1280x720 is. But on my laptop, 1280x768 allows to make full use of the display. A true 16:9 resolution leaves very small black bars on top and bottom of my screen.

    Your laptop display is probably an old 16:10.

    Blizzard made a, for hero based maps, significant change:
    Cooldowns of Spels from items are now stored on the item and Unit, previously it was on the unit only -> no more handing over active items to use it multiple times.
    The chooseable Game-Version option has no effect on this.
    it affects melee and custom maps.
    Old: Some maps like DotA did alot of stuff (code + Object Editor) to avioid this multiple usage, which is not needed anymore.
    Edit: Some maps like DotA did alot of stuff (code + Object Editor) to avioid this multiple usage. This extra work would now not be needed anymore.

    Are you saying the per item cooldown already existed in 1.27? Or that a new feature did not exist back in 1.27?

    The new patches are required to run WC3 properly on Windows 10 and newer Mac OS versions.

    Or you can use 1.28 which uses D3D9 natively.

    All Blizzard games run on Mac. Be it Diablo III, StarCraft II, Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch or World of Warcraft.

    The updates work fine, at least for the English locale. Furthermore this site only offers support for people using the latest version of Warcraft III.

    Try putting it in Documents -> Warcraft III -> Campaigns. If that folder isn't there, make one and it should work.

    Go with your anger to Blizz official forums with actual arguments, so you can be of some use.
