Warcraft 3 Patch Switcher

Do you have a portable copy of Warcraft 3 and the Frozen Throne? Maybe for whatever reason, you need to switch your current patch from 1.26e to a lower version number for a map to work properly.

Did you know there is a way to switch the patch of the game on the fly?  There is a program called Warcraft Version Switcher that can be used to aide with this request.  See the two tutorial links below to get started.

Ghost One Warcraft 3 Hosting Bot – Configuration Through Pictures

Revisions:

8-7-10: Initial Release.


I will keep this short. The GhostOne bot is a bot that people can use to host LAN games onto Bnet or Eurobattle.net or any other service.  What this means is that you can turn on this bot, and people from your LAN or virtual LAN (Hamachi, Tunngle) can join the LAN game and the same game will be hosted on Battle.net!  Now Battle.net and your LAN gamers can play against each other!

I have a tutorial about this and you can watch it at the end of this post.

The problem I have is that people watch the tutorial, but they are still getting confused (why?). In an effort to help out with the troubleshooting, I have included a collection of pictures below that are important to the configuration of GhostOne bot. Verify your configuration against mine, and hopefully that should fix your issues.

Note: If there is anything important, I will point it out specifically for the picture above.

[How To] Play Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne LAN Online Free Using Tunngle (Forget Hamachi & Garena)

Revisions:

1-11-10:  Initial release.

1-12-10:  Added my youtube video.


Foreword: There is nothing illegal about playing Warcraft 3 LAN online bypassing the Battle.net servers. I have a legit game, and I play on Tunngle with friends time to time. If you are a Hamachi user, I suggest you switch to Tunngle. There are more people and its easier to host!


I love DOTA. I love it so much that I play it when I am sick of playing other games. With that said, someone had requested a Tunngle tutorial on how to play this game online, so here is the tutorial. If you want to play DOTA online with me and the others, add my Tunngle username: Versatile.

Tutorial:

1) First of all, make sure you have the latest game update. You can get the latest Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne update here.

2) Download and install Tunngle. Make an account. Sign in. If you are having trouble signing into Tunngle, then you need to port forward UDP 11155 for your computer. Don’t know how to port forward? See my video below:

3) Go to the Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne network. Or the Dota Network. To get there, you need to login to Tunngle. Then do Community -> Networks -> Browser -> Strategy -> Forward (Press 4 times) -> Double click on the Warcraft 3 network.
