WWarcraft 3 Loader for PvPGN

We loading Warcraft III! =)
By
on

This software patches Warcraft III to enable connections to PvPGN servers.

Using

  1. Place both w3l.exe, w3lh.dll and wl27.dll into your Warcraft III directory.
  2. Run 'w3l.exe' when you want to connect to a PvPGN server.
  3. Run 'war3.exe' when you want to connect to battle.net.
  4. You can set delay value in file latency.txt. The proper delay value lies between 30 and 255. If wrong value is set or file is missed, delay value will be set to 100 ms. Default Blizzard's value is 250.

The included release is built with the "old" Starcraft-style hash code. It should work with existing accounts.
If you want SRP3 support you'll need to rebuild the DLL with USE_SRP3 enabled in patches.h or download *_SRP3.zip package.
If you have problem with w3l, download debug version of loader, use it and send bugreport at https://github.com/w3lh/w3l/issues
