Fixed chat in game - nice  :ok_hand:

When I plugged in second monitor, game keeps crashing. I can only play when there is only 1 screen or screens are duplicated

Hmm yeah... i can reproduce it, but I don't have a good solution for it yet. You can try the ddraw file I attached, It doesn't change to 640x480 when you join the lobby, that means the lobby is small but at least it doesn't crash. Will try to find a better solution for it soon!

Edit: ddraw file is now included in the main download

Looks great in the pictures.

I tried the instructions to install it and end result is that starting Warcraft flashes the screen and will not start the app. I get a popup in Windows that says Start Warcraft II before you click OK.

Uninstalled everything, reinstalled, didn't work. Created new user account. Didn't work.

The only thing at all I use that computer for is Warcraft.So I would love to press the "reset whole computer" button. But for some reason they don't make that button.

Make sure you start the game from the new Warcraft_II_HD.exe that's included in .zip, don't use the old shortcut/loader!

I just released a new test version, check the first post for the download link. https://forum.war2.ru/index.php?topic=6461.0

The build from yesterday had a bug that could crash the game sometimes, please re-download!

Using the high res on the max resolution possible, everything is well except for the edges, when i scroll to move it will freeze on the edge of the screen.. Im using dual monitors. I have the ddraw file from the post in my war2 dir. any fix for this?

Found the bug and fixed it, updated the download in the first post. Don't use the other ddraw file anymore, I included the fix now in the main download as well
