    Native full screen is what we currently have for full screen: the screen redraws to match the picked resolution, and alt-tab is kind of slow to change.

    Windowed-fullscreen is more like a big window with no borders. So a window that covers the whole screen, which is not the same thing.

    Well, at least now I don't have to create a direct access to play in windowed mode

    It didn't work on 1.27b, they returned it so it's going to work on future patches as well. Which is a good thing.

    This patch was quite interesting actually, but some people have good points too. Considering how long it took for this patch, we could've actually expected more. But anyway, since they have fixed their patching system, then I assume they will make progress much more rapidly from now on. I will take aside the disappointment and keep my hopes up for now.

    PSA: patching system have NOTHING to do with patching (writing changes, applying fixes) itself. It's just how files get replaced.

    I can't see adding the hotkeys for inventory... Is it so hard to implement?

    So you say. Others, in positions of authority, tell us that it has a lot to do with patching.

    Let's ignore all the hype & opinions & hyperbole & focus on this one simple element: do you believe that a more robust patching system (i.e. one akin to what many modern games have, rather than the existing/previous one from 2001) to be beneficial to the game being patched? Do you accept that certain/many 'back-end' changes must be made before (m)any 'front-end', desired changes are?

    Yep, you are a bit too soon to be disappointed. Let's wait for their next patch (1.29 or maybe 1.30) and see if they actually make any significant change. If not, then it can probably mean they are just toying with us. Since I think they have no more reason not to work on those desired changes (we are such hungry modders aren't we? :grin:).

    Are you developer? I dont care about 'authority' who have no idea what they're talking about.
    Well, how do things change for ya if you're patching game? Before: fix a line, test, it works. Not: fix a line, test, it works. IT ONLY CHANGES THE WAY UPDATE GET ONLINE, not updating process ffs. Is it hard to understand?

    Seriously now. What is the point of just making false-hoods like this? There's literally no proof on this.

    DracoL1ch, as I've said before, if you don't like the patch, don't download it. Hell, you could even try to not even be bothered by it. You don't even use battle.net and you said that you're only interested in DotA for online play. So you don't even have to be affected by it that much. We're not stopping you from leaving, nor are we forcing you to stay. We're not forcing you to like the patch either. But seriously, quit dicking around. You were already temp banned for harassing other users. And while you haven't got that far yet, this behavior often leads to it.

    You can sulk or protest all you want, but this is Hive. Yes, we have connection to Blizzard, but if you want to protest Blizzard, do it at their place.

    Wow. Where's your proof it ANYHOW helps to PATCH the game in terms of DEVELOPMENT? Tell me, enlighten me. I know this kitchen, I learned this stuff hard way, and I also well know about marketing boolsheet. So go on, give your proffs.

    E: ya know, it's impossible task for you anyway. So just explain, with words, how.

    Well you're the one trying to prove us wrong with no evidence. But whatever you say.

    Statement from a Blizzard employee, Brad on the PSA thread. I also reposted it here. Kam, PurgeandFire, and Ralle all have signed NDAs with Blizzard. If you want some detailed visual evidence, go get an arrangement with Blizzard or something. I doubt they'll want to share the code with you to prove how the patching system works in detail. I hope this answers your question, and you can get the courage to agree to disagree.

    And where is your proof that it won't, dear?

    Stop being a sour bitch. I understand the point of having an attitude, or a point of having an opinion. I, for one, am well known for having both of those in any given moment.

    But, one's to be a QQing kid which doesn't want to comprehend or at least try to step out, and another thing's to be fully passive aggressive not towards just the thing that's currently going on, aka the patch, but towards other users as well.

    You can be mad all you want at Blizzard and I kindly suggest you to express your concerns directly towards them, instead of spilling your rage on top of other normal users who, may I notice, didn't even ask for "a piece of you". Trouble is, when you lend one too many pieces of you, you tend to get left with none.

    Tl;dr: Just stop, will you? Nobody quite cares.

    They fixed something they broke themselves.
    It is not praiseworthy.

    If this was a minor side note in a frequently patched game - no problem. But when it is the -only- feature I remotely care about in the patch, I have a problem.

    Blizzard take notes, this is how a patch should look:

    So far I can see both of you caring, so I shall continue.

    I have proofs - statement "patching improved" doesnt affect coding itself. You know, if only blizzard populated with retards who calls "development, source code refactoring, optimizations" with "patching" - that's only explanation you can get along with.

    Meanwhile you're callikng for "authority" of blizzard (who has no authority in terms of truth-speaking (check patches history for any of his words - did it become true)) and some community members whoare binded with DNA. Wait a second, how common-sense "patching process improved" can be DNA'd ? Isn't it so common? You just instantly assumed it helps in development, and I wanna know how you get it. If it's not common knowledge, then it's even more bullshit, because, ya know, it's retarded to put a line which noone will understand in PSA.

    You know it's okay to express your opinions here, but have you ever heard of using a civil tone? You have zero reason and authority to be calling anyone retarded. Not that you care, but I would generally take the time to read your rants, but when its carried with a juvenile tone, I stop reading. I can't imagine a company like Blizzard taking us seriously when we have posts like that here.

    Anyway, while all the impatient folks moan about things that haven't been implemented, I'll come back with party hats and cupcakes once Blizzard implements multi-screen support for the editor.

    I said "if". It's Camp who tries to set up things like Blizzards are retarded or even I am, using tone he calls 'authority'. You guys probably forgot that this company made nothing yet which could save wc3.

    mutli-screen seems to be a fucking luxury. Just imagine they didn't even implement part of NewGen features while broke the fuck of compatibility

    True that they haven't really done anything for the WC modding community, but you'd be a fool to think that WC3 is the Classic Team's primary focus. Just keep doing you Draco, and when they break something else like the command buttons, make a post in the Patch Discussion as you have always been. I appreciate the amount of work you have done for this modding community, and I would be upset to see you go because of anger.

    Oh yeah, they did say that Starcraft would be their focus for a good while.
    Pretty sure they more or less confirmed that they would look at other games 2018~
