Q: What requirements of this?
A: Not much, uses < 1MB of disk space, typically < 2MB of RAM, and you can tune CPU performance by increasing the 'loop' setting in W3DR.ini. The application is stand alone and requires no libraries (other than the Microsoft C Libraries ofc, which come packaged with Windows). Basically if you can run Warcraft III, you can run W3DR =].

Q: Sometimes commands don’t work.
A: This is because of the chat detection method. Try pausing for a fraction of a second before pressing Enter. Alternatively, you can try lowering ‘loop’ in W3DR.ini.

Q: Commands don’t work at all.
A: Check the Log Window output, and see what ‘Setting bang=!’ is, the first character you type should be the last character (in this case ‘!’). You can change this setting in W3DR.ini.

Q: OMG I scanned this with virustotal.com <or insert other scanner>, and it’s infected!?
A: The program makes 0 attempts to connect to the outside world, and only attempts to change war3.exe memory, if you see other behaviour the exe is probably infected, safest bet is to download only from w3dr.com. Further to this, there is a false positive caused by certain anti-virus vendors (“W32/Heuristic-KPP!Eldorado”) which affects multiple applications of this type. What this comes down to is that if you don’t trust an application vendor, don’t use the application, Vivendi-Blizzard are doing much shadier stuff than I, imo (further).

Q: What versions of Wc3 does this work for?
A: Currently compatible for 1.24e, 1.25b, 1.26a if you are looking for DR for an older version checkout, Veetee Technology (links on the right).

Q: Does this work for RoC?
A: No idea, works fine for me with ‘-classic’, I have no real impetus to develop or test for non TFT environments though =].

Q: Does this support LAN?
A: Yes! As of 2.3.0 I’ve added support for LAN.

Q: Will Blizzard ban me for using this?
A: I strongly suspect not, the application is very polite in its modifications and only touches regions of memory necessary to making the requested changes. I’m yet to hear even a second hand report of someone being banned with it (that wasn’t using applications that Blizzard are known to ban for). That said, Blizzard are known for their zero tolerance policy and can very easily detect this and ban for it.

Q: I want feature ‘x’ added, or I’ve found a bug, how can I contact you?
A: Best bet is to post it under the latest version, alternatively you can mail me: hostmaster <at> w3dr <dot> com

    This was a race condition created in 2.3.0, please update, as this bug may potentially cause W3 to crash.

  2. Mini

    Hey Ph, there’re some issues while using the 2.3.1 one. thought you might would wanna know.
    First thing is that when DR is waiting for GAme.DLL it just stops..
    2nd problem is that “error 5″ occurs.. says
    ” Warcraft III , program now terminating”

    Hope you can change that till the next versions ^^

    As mentioned in the FAQ, this is a false positive.

    Naturally you should never run code on your PC if you feel you can’t trust the source.

    Howdy! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone. I’m trying to
    find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!

    Some states do not make it so easy to verify a CNA
    certification. Nursing aides are also given necessary
    time to focus better on their jobs and responsibilities through these training programs.
    After all, what good is training if your news skills do not
    get used.
