Updating warcraft 3 Wivescams
Blizzard's old RTSes could be readying for a invasion.

The 1.26a patch isn't anything particularly special, being a simple incremental patch with a few minor gameplay balance tweaks, but it does address a disconnection issue that some Mac OS players reported with the previous versions.

The suggestion is, learned via a question from a fan at Blizzcon, that Blizzrd may well be working to get the classic Warcraft and Warcraft II to run on modern machines.

You can verify the version number of the game at the bottom right hand corner of the main menu when you start up the game.Can I really not play Warcraft III, or is there a solution to this?In addition to this bug there's a message about missing CD-ROM in the drive.If you've recently installed or reinstalled the game, or your version of the game is far behind the current version, you will need to download and install the full Universal patch.Changes in 1.26 include:• Hex will no longer provide a speed boost to a Hero if cast at the end of Metamorphosis or Chemical Rage effects.• Reverted the 1.25b fix, "Hex will no longer extend the duration of Metamorphosis."• Fixed an issue where some Mac patches could lead to disconnections during games.
Our entire guild and all my friends are now using it.
