anyone already checked it?
Is their gateway the same as for diablo?
I try to connect:
connect-forever.classic.blizzard.com
using combat.

It offers to update my war2, and update not working...

hackers have just evolved. they're using methods that .ru isnt able to detect. its still going on.

just get so good that even someone hacking doesn't have an advantage

It's a gateway from their diablo. I still have no their war2, so i just suppose they use the same server, but i'm not sure, so i ask, maybe somebody knows...

i got the  iso but idk, im afraid i may get banned.
At least for diablo there were no any protections and bans.
Would be very interesting to look to that iso if you can share it somewhere!

Got it on war2!
I installed original war2, patched it to 2.0.2.1 and joined to that server!
Not so good news to use, combat is based on 2.0.2.0, and i had not plans to move to 2.0.2.1...
Also, it wrote "connection is so poor", but maybe the problem is related to virtual host i used to start it...
Copied to main computer, joined, and here's it!

Is there a legal GOG server you're trying to connect or what?
And how good is HIGH-RES for 24" — 27" displays in a new client?

Anyway, I got the feeling this is good news.
Title: Re: warcraft II now available on gog
Post by: iL on March 28, 2019, 02:30:38 PM
Well, we have to adapt our server to them:
1. they use gateway list version 2000
We use 1001. That means we have to update our version to 2000, otherwise they will overwrite our list every time your join there.
2. they allow to join war2 version 2.0.2.1 only. That's unpleasant for combat, that is based on 2.0.2.0.
That means we have to change combat to 2.0.2.1 or it will not be able to join their server.

Need to think about that...

yes, i'm trying to connect to GOG server from their server for diablo. I still have no their war2, so i just think it will use the same server...

And how good is HIGH-RES for 24" — 27" displays in a new client?

Anyway, I got the feeling this is good news.
No idea, but we are going to release our own high-res implementation, that will be definitely better than theirs.
Also they will be cross-compatible: to use theirs for us and ours for them.

I got it, you're connecting to their server using our War2Ru client.

I checked all torrent trackers I usually use and so far couldn't find the GOG version of WC2, but it will be there for sure.

LOL, I also checked our previous GOG topic here and its all (4/5 pages) about that BabyShark-2Pac-toxic-trashtalk situation, just a few posts about GOG itself.

iL, can I buy War2 from gog, and then use a gateway editor to add war2.ru, and then use both?  Or will 2.0.2.1 be incompatible with .ru?

You have to port forward!!!! Also weird the text box is all fucked up!

Sure, you can!
You also can download it for free and use with no legal cd-key.

And yes, you also can use GOG war2 to play on our server.

But not i'm thinking how to make combat based on GOG war2. Need to make combat compatible with GOG!

Now the problem is they use 2.0.2.1, that is not compatible with our tools: warvideo, warlatency, zawarlat, war2observe, not sure about war2insight.
Maybe several more utilities.
Title: Re: warcraft II now available on gog
Post by: tupac on March 28, 2019, 04:09:17 PM
I see

If you use the old bnet classic the color fix will make war2 think it's a virus that modified war2... that why the text box is all broken. The sad thing is you have to port forward or you will get the udp poor packets 6112 message.

That's why you cant use the new direct draw on official servers. They would need to update the server end.




UPDATE:


So it throws us in random channels by country a numbers so it will be a bitch to find our community.

You assume and blame me for too much. We are worried about you.

Bottom line is

1. If GOG is successful (I'll give them 6 months) war2usa.com will be closing.

2. I'm sure il and me will receive letters to shutdown before legal action against us.

3. Delete that link it's illegal to host or post and against rules. No torrents or serials. Why pirate and make gog lose money when they are tied with blizzard and trying to revive old games that's just childish!

4. You need to open ports regardless just to join or host!

5. The ddraw for bnet is broken and the new hacked ddraws break the checksum and won't work on official servers. Let's hope they update bnet soon.

6. We need to come up with a channel for our old community or we will be thrown in channel randomly based or numbers and countries.

Nope maybe the gateway issues are conflicting I'm working on that now. I was able to connect to server.war2.ru and war2usa with gog war2. I broke the syntax at the moment and only server.war2.ru shows up LOL!

Seems they had our ideas in mind they use ipxwrapper also.

No upnp support so now you cant play at all if you dont port forward.
 
Be back later with an update.

Sounds like it sucks so far.  Potentially unstable server disconnecting users, no upnp so hosting there is worse than on ru. ddraw is worse as well, and they're unlikely to ever have any anti-hack/other utilities.  Not sure if they'll do anything at all in the way of moderation?

Best case seems to be our client can be upgraded to be compatible to the gog server, which would give us more people to play with, if there's going to be people buying War2 from them... but since I never had heard of gog before this, not sure what kind of influx of users we should expect.
Title: Re: warcraft II now available on gog
Post by: iL on March 28, 2019, 05:42:43 PM
It's quite possible to use War2PLoader with 2.0.2.1.
For uPNP and noCD.
It will not fix any bugs with warlat, zwarlat and so on.
Antihack should not work too. I think so.

Just checked: at least it doesn't crash war2. Should work. I have no uPNP on my router o check, but should work.

well gog is u buy the game u keep,you dont need the server like say steam and at a 90% market share blizzard maybe trying to make a competition to steam.

u could make a client side anti..both users have the program on they cant hack..and if it doesnt match = drop

You place this in your gog war2 folder for me it is.
C:\program files (x86)\gog galaxy\games\warcraft ii bne\

Attached is the new .cmd file you can right click and compare the differences if you want. I've added server.war2.ru, gog, war2usa. Only bug I have ran into is if you exit battle.net to the server menu the original gateways are there but works for now.




Edit: run as admin!

Here are the forums. All kinds of complaints. I included one of my own.

I really don't understand how anyone can charge $$$ for the type of product they're releasing.

Played 5 games with some really good & some really new people. My stats are 0-5 by now lol.

HOSTED A FEW GAMES for the first time since 2014, when I had white static IP for free.

Saw only 1 drop when Swift joined, no lags at all.


(I used those torrent GOG version & some public blacklisted key)

Stop complaining about the 10.00. They are raising development money! We all cried for updated war2. This is how a project is funded!

All of you people who have worked so hard fixing/patching/upgrading/modifying this game for the last 9+ years should start sending some e-mails to get some of these issues fixed!

https://support.gog.com/hc/en-us/articles/360020536394-Warcraft-2-Battle-net-Edition

GOG is the future of War2 ... but they got no clue what to do because they haven't been doing it as long as some of you have. Help them so we can have a strong community again.

I paid it.. it was more a "LOOK AT WHAT I EXPECT!" type post. I am extremely surprised they released this without figuring this stuff out. How do you sell a "damaged" product to someone?

just a new server. with the potential to have a MUCH larger community.

similar to zone in the sense that zone hosted multiple games.

if they do their fking job.. it's not unrealistic to imagine there could be hundreds (if not thousands) or users logged on at any given time playing war2
Title: Re: warcraft II now available on gog

Hopefully they release some patches in the coming weeks.
Title: Re: warcraft II now available on gog
Post by: maciek on March 28, 2019, 07:11:06 PM
Let's sum up:
Gog server requires cd key they didn't send although I bought their game.
You need to forward ports to be able to even join game.
At this moment it is hardly possible to play at Gog server.

Research how you have to find your cd key on GoG. They provided you one, you have to go to library. Go to warcraft 2, and go into more/serial keys
Title: Re: warcraft II now available on gog
Post by: baRa on March 28, 2019, 07:17:03 PM
I've read all 6 pages of this thread and still don't fully understand. I need to buy the game all over again?( haven't had the disc and key since ru came out)
Title: Re: warcraft II now available on gog
Post by: tk[as] on March 28, 2019, 07:19:38 PM
so i did get on. had to uninstall .ru and re-install gog.

yes. you pay $10 for war2. then join their server... as far as i can tell once you get all of that figured out, the text you type in the lobby is the only really fucking shitty thing.. it gets all fucked up when you're trying to type.

Yes this is another let down for me making it so hard to find out how to connect to the multiplayer. If they had this and the chat ready then things would really be nice! Seems like a lot of newbies are logging in and already getting their ports figured out.

it seems like they're only newbs to the game.. not gaming itself. which is cool.

That's because they are using almost the same ddraw.dll as the original war2. The hacked ddraws we have been using will break the original battle.net servers, until those are updated to accept, you would get a error message (virus) and disconnected. It also seems the old useast and west server won't allow the gog version on. This explains the ss's above. If you ran the "Add servers  .cmd posted above" UPDATE FIX! only if you want other servers then gog. This fix makes it so if you connect then exit you can rejoin gog and not bug out to the useast, uswest, server lists that error out. Once you connect to GOG server they will rewrite the server list to only have GOG server. So you will have to run the directplay.cmd file again as ADMIN make sure war2 is closed when changing your servers.

UPDATE: use gog war2 with your favorite server.[/font][/size]You place this in your gog war2 folder for me it is.C:\program files (x86)\gog galaxy\games\warcraft ii bne\[/size]Attached is the new .cmd file you can right click and compare the differences if you want.

YOU  WILL HAVE TO RE-RUN THIS EVERY TIME YOU OPEN WAR2 OR CONNECT TO GOG SERVER.






I got my CD key by going to my account and found it. When you installed war2 if you didn't run through it. It would of stated visit your account to get your cdkey for multiplayer.







EDIT:


There is two versions on war2 you can run at the loader screen. I would say single player has the new ddraw.dll and changes. The multiplayer didn't get worked on much yet LOL!

sio far most obvious problems are typing in lobby, and have to reset resources every time u host
Title: Re: warcraft II now available on gog
Post by: tupac on March 28, 2019, 08:10:32 PM
It looks like single player war2 uses xdraw.dll and the online version uses ddraw.dll.

So i copied the GOG xdraw.dll and renamed it ddraw.dll also copied dxcfg.exe, dxcfg.ini and pasted into the combat folder. Seems their ddraw is having the old issues we where having bnet text boxes where on a black screen and not lined up with the graphics, icons, words. So they have 2 ddraws total.. Pretty cool though changing preferences but not worth the crappy look and i guess the other ddraw.dll is what gog multiplayer uses with the broken text when typing.

For anyone logging in the Global Server right now we are meeting up in channel Classic Games.

Ran into prob around 50 newbies so far tonight and more people are starting to log in faster. By the weekend I expect to see a lot!

Have you ever heard of a thing called "Microsoft Windows" ;)

And that server have strange config:
/con not working,
/games not working...

AFAIK these never worked on bnet either, they are pvpgn commands.

Are they using pvpgn? If it's an official lisenced version would they be using an unlisenced server? IDK.

Is that work if you use war2combat 4.4 for our server?
If yes, i'd say some troubles on GOG server. If no, some troubles in combat or routing...

Just got disced from GoG server, no idea why. And returned back now...

Hm, did you use IPV6 address from your ISP?
Also, how your war2 worked on our server then? That's very interesting solution...

Yeah, I think i used IPV6 since i got this router 10 years, they switch it and I didnt know they did it, I used to play only w2, newer games hadnt got problem with host
 I got host on gog server so im sure i got host in rus server
