Just copy it into the game folder, then run it to configure you rendering settings.

Cool idea. Looks nice.  :thumbsup:

Sorry I can't test it because my wc2 box is an oldskool XP32, and the config needs .NET, but it should be very useful for people using new OS.

its gooder to hax hard and NEVER get caught!

Yeah on XP you'll have to install .NET 2.0 manually, on vista/7/8/10 you don't have to do anything though.

You can get it here if needed http://download.microsoft.com/download/5/6/7/567758a3-759e-473e-bf8f-52154438565a/dotnetfx.exe

Make sure you don't have the game running, otherwise it can't replace the ddraw.dll cause the game is using it

Updated with a few new display modes for upscaling.
OpenGL / Direct3D 9 will now detect when a player joins battle.net and automatically switch to windowed mode while battle.net is open (it will switch back to fullscreen when you join a game).
Tooltips were added in English and Russian (translated by iL)

Did it crash with all 4 renderers? (GDI/OpenGL/Direct3D9/DirectDraw)

Make sure you don't have any compatibility modes enabled for Warcraft II BNE.exe, some of them can cause crashes

I dont know, i try every renders but i finally decide to play with the original one.

And on almost every early games it make me crash.

I desinstall my war2 and install a new one without it and now it work fine again.

Maybe its only me too, better wait for others comments.

Updated! Fixed some bugs related to alt+tab and alt+enter (alt key was sticking sometimes after you returned to the window)

Update: OpenGL and Direct3D9 renderer will now show a popup and ask if you really want to exit the game if you hit the X button to close the game in windowed mode

Note: Make sure you open the config program and select your renderer again, then press ok (Otherwise it won't update the ddraw)

Update: Fixed a bug with the OpenGL and Direct3D renderers where sometimes the game would randomly minimize or switch to windowed mode after pressing Esc or Enter.

Note: Make sure you open the config program and select your renderer again, then press ok (Otherwise it won't update the ddraw)

Update: Fixed a bug with multi monitor setups where the cursor wasn't locked to the primary screen anymore after alt+tab

Note: Make sure you open the config program and select your renderer again, then press ok (Otherwise it won't update the ddraw)

Update:

Added a new .ini setting "SingleProcAffinity=Yes" for the GDI renderer, this should help to avoid crashes with 3rd party utils (e.g. old war2observe)
