I entered my key to gog client and this key is already used
Did you enter your key using gog utility KeyChanger.exe?
Old cdkey changers will not work with gog client. Same as with lastest Combat 4.4.2.

AVG antivirus HATES 4.4


Yeah, you're getting a bit more red on virustotal.

At first glance, I'd guess that it's VirtualProtectEx. It has no purpose other than messing with the memory protection of another process, which will probaly cause heuristic results.

If you work from the inside you can just use VirtualProtect which won't be anywhere near as suspicious.

That method will NOT work with Combat 4.4.2 and GOG!
That will change the cd-key inside MPQ-archives, but GOG's version looks to the registry instead.

Thanks for your idea, i'll try that!

That's sad, but i have no idea how that can happen. I didn't add any new code to loader, i just removed some code, so that's strange. I'll try to update loader as soon as possible...

Also looks like you are no longer using libcurl ... i think?  Maybe you no longer have to distribute the .dll

Actually no, the noCDloader uses virtualprotectex and it only gets 2r on virustotal ... so idk ???

-- edit --


and the one engine that says v4.3 is "unsafe" doesn't detect v4.4 at all while 12 others do .... just shows you what garbage heuristic resluts are  ::)

also the nocdloader is not needed wih the 4.4 client. :)
it already has the byte at 0x28E17 set to 0x00 so the nocdloader is doing nothing

You look into the table of functions used by loader? I don't remember exactly, but should be so.
I plan to restore antihack and other functionality based of new ideas, so... no i didn't remove a libcturl yet.

also the nocdloader is not needed wih the 4.4 client. :)
Yes, it was just lazy to remove the nocd loader this moment, i'm not sure how the project wil evolve in near future...
Maybe nocd will be required again soon.
I hate the idea to use gog exe modified by gog, i'd prefer clean 2021 or 2020, but there would not be ways to use gog cdkeys then.

just shows you what garbage heuristic resluts are
Yes, but the main question here is how to bypass that heuristic. That's the most important thing to distribute combat.
I'll try to make some tests when i'll be on place...

For sure. We need to know what is causing it, so then we can work out how to bypass it. Suggest making lots of dummy .exe and test them.

Take out one part ... build and test .... take out the next part .... build and test etc. Until you know what is causing the alert, then we can get sneaky about it ;)

Well, checked gog forum: https://www.gog.com/forum/warcraft_ii_battlenet_edition
Many requests about different languages.
And no any requests about any languages here.
So, i removed all the 4.3 full versions and uploaded 4.4 full versions.
Will not work with existing war2insight, warvideo, war2observe, but will be compatible with GOG server, that is much more important for full version!
Feel free to play full versions compatible with GOG on: English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish!

That's the wrong link.  All it does is link to a file list of about 100 files that tells the user nothing about what to download.  It need ONE big button that says "Download Latest Version" and it needs to link to the ENGLISH 44 Standard version since that is what 99% of all users will want.  It's less maint for you and more clear to users what needs to be downloaded when you have current_version type download links.  The rest of them are for the VERY FEW users that use non-english hotkeys/test (and iL is in that category,  you are indeed a part of the minority) and if they are using those,  they will already know that they need to DL the correct language.

This is the correct link btw:  ftp://ftp.war2.ru/war2/War2Combat44_en.exe

Agree, but i'd recommend english 44 full version instead.
More 400Mb is nothing for most people, but they will have full game, with all videos, music and speeches.

Still going to make a beatiful download page when i have enough time, right after fixing loader false-positives i think...
