I think GOG is not allowed to make core changes in the game, they just adds some external features to play in new Windows versions and so on. But the game remain the same. For instance, in some versions of their games, the just use DOSBox to run them... on modern systems, and as you know, something so simple can be done by anyone by just reading some internet guides!

By saying this, i mean the surely wont change the way the game is presented/packed, with mpq files, etc. Every tool we have to explore War2 will mostly work! ^-^ And thats why i think it'd be possible to make a War2Combat version, from the upcoming War2GOG files, and even a better version using a mix of the better files from each version, taking advantege of quality audio and movie, etc.

I also tried the Diablo 1.09 ddraw with War2Combat and wrote about in other thread (i copy below):

The Diablo (GOG) ddraw worked with War2Combat!! You even can configure the resolution with a little tool included in the Diablo folder.

All i did was copy from the folder \Diablo\dx the following files:

ddraw.dll
dxcfg.exe
dxcfg.ini

With dxcfg.exe you can change resolution and other things, War2 work with no lag, is cool!!!


It also worked in "Windows Mode" too with that ddraw :D

t the ddraw in war2 folder with .exe mpq etc...start war2,hit ~ in the game to bring up menu.

Did that but the game didn't start at all, i received a message saying the ddraw was not ok or was missing (tried using Windows 10). I think we should work around with the new Diablo (GOG) ddraw, maybe it's already corrected ;)

EDIT: the Diablo (GOG) ddraw worked with War2Combat!! You even can configure the resolution with a little tool included in the Diablo folder.

All i did was copy from the folder \Diablo\dx the following files:

ddraw.dll
dxcfg.exe
dxcfg.ini

A Warcraft 2 Remastered mode with Battle.net edition would be much more cooler.

I think we can say goodbye to that idea, now that Blizzard have join forces with GOG. War2 is like a classic and aparently will never have an HD version o rerelease like War3 :(

Wow, that would be great! It also says GOG worked with Blizzard for some enhacements to the game, really nice if the do the same with War2 :thumbsup:

Wooooooowwwwwww

Q: Are other classic Blizzard games coming to GOG.COM?
A: Yes! We have announced that we’re partnering with GOG.COM to release Warcraft: Orcs and Humans and Warcraft II. We’ll reveal more information at a later date.

Just courious, why are you trying to edit the fonts? To translate perhaps?  ???

Ah! Great! I thought the campaing error was OK because they were already included natively in the game. Good you fixed that!
