WidescreenRes - Final

Submitted by JakeCake
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This Tool simply changes the resolution in wc3 to the resolution you are using on your desktop and in other applications, without you having to do anything else than download and run the program. You do not have to save the file, just use Open/Run when your browser asks you what to do!

Who should use it?
This program is used for people who can't choose widescreen resolutions in-game because their video card will not allow it in wc3, like me for example!

Optimized for all versions of Windows

    Is there a difference between using this tool an changing WC3's resolution to 1920x1200 in the registry with regedit?

    Not really, but to tell people to start messing with the RegEdit is a bad idea..

    -Easier (New description & info)
    -Smaller (Less file size)
    -More compatible (It will work with framework 2.0+ insteed of 3.5+ now)
    -Fixed, it won't connect to the internet no longer, thank you for the error report "crazy_spray" :thumbs_up:

    Thanks! This is a very good tool!
    I also have a question: How does it actually work, what does it do to make it widescreen?

    hmm, what does the text in the program said, did it detect the right resolution, and do you use 64bit(even though it should not change anything, but it's not testet on 64bit)

    ok... I tested this little Prog on Win Vista 64

    Works perfectly! BUT WC:III does NOT support resolutions higher than 1152x864px (this is the highest shown in my Option window!).
    With your tool, higher res do WORK(!!) but the Grafic-Option-Menu shows a res of 640x480px!
    If you don't klick this field, all will work!!!! (clicking will set the res to one of the awailible resolutions!)

    just run the tool, and leave it like it is than!

    yeah...

    Yep, it's legal...., i've played wcIII online at Garena, B-NET. plus, it's just resolution, the only advantage on widescreen Res is that u might be able to see much more about the game terrain at once :p
