[solved] Error Opening W2
« on: November 06, 2017, 08:46:40 AM »
Whenever I go to open w2 (even as admin) it immediately gives me an error saying "Warcraft II Battle.net Edition has stopped working"
I'm not sure how to fix this... :(
Short of uninstalling and re-installing which even then it may still not work.

Disregard: I fixed it.
Went to Properties > Ran in Windows XP service Pack 2 > Run in 256 color > lower resolution  > presto!
