I'm using my MacBook from 2017 and runs Ventura 13.6.1.

I downloaded the latest version I think. The one in your first post.

Really thank you! Even if it doesn't work big thx to all of you guys for making this game available :)



@JcNoob4Eva  I could never reproduce your bug, but I updated the download now with the latest files, maybe it'll work now

Other updates:
Comes now with latest widescreen patch
Changed widescreen resolution to a 16:10 one (960x608)
Window size is now bigger (Option+Return to enable)
Fixed issues with the map preview in game room (it wasn't working sometimes)

Updated with some feature requests by lesnik

Does now support the old gdi ddraw.dll (must be named ddraw_legacy.dll) and must set LegacyGDI=Yes in the .ini
Changed the main menu url and gateways to use the newer domains
added the missing UI textures x_lft0.bmp.png / x_lft1.bmp.png

so i have the lobby map files, yet i see no map preview in the lobby =[
how do i fix?

Did you manage to get this working Chayliss?

He told me on discord that he fixed it


Added new dedithering shader "jinc2-dedither.glsl" (enable it if your fog of war is looking weird)

Added new textures for resolutions up to 4k (Thanks to Kipp!)

Added updated version of MMblack plugin (changes black to pink on minimap)

The game can now load .png files directly (no more conversion required) - see Data folder

Added new resolutions: 1280x800, 1120x480, 1024x768

use HD version u can set any res settings

Instructions unclear, penis stuck in toaster

HD version AKA widescreen patch:

Thank you! I figured it out. I have to pick certain game modes. Melee works.

Is there any way to make my client run in 4:3 in fullscreen? I checked the configuration program, and maintain aspect ratio is checked, but it still runs in widescreen. Thanks so much for replying. Your server is awesome, and has been a favorite of mine for many years.

You can use the HD/widescreen patch to get true widescreen without stretching. If you prefer to stick to 4:3 then you'll have to check your graphic driver settings, there's a option somewhere on how it's supposed to behave when the aspect ratio of a game doesn't match your monitors aspect ratio.

The aspect ratio setting in warcraft 2 config does only work incase upscaling (or borderless) is enabled


Added the official "global" server to the server list

Added a new patch that allows you to join games without port forwarding on the official server

Added a new patch that changes the closed port warning message on the official server from:
 - You will be able to chat but will not be able to play games.
 - You will be able to join games but will not be able to create your own.

The new bnet version does have multiplayer support, they only got a bug currently. They forgot to add the global server to the registry, that's why you see the old non-working servers in the list. If you add the registry key manually it'll work. (if you got the GOG version installed, it'll work too)

The Create/join buttons are disabled if your port isn't forwarded, but this isn't a bug (it was always like this on bnet). You can just install the widescreen patch and both buttons will be unlocked (even without having the port forwarded).

Also, some good news about their new release: The official bnet server DOES NOT require a legit cd-key anymore. They've removed the cd-key check. That means, everyone who buys their game gets the same dummy cd-key set into the registry. The server is pretty much free to use now, multiple users can now connect using the same cd-key at the same time (there is no more "cd-key is in use by XYZ" message)

Super! I installed it. It works, but can't connect to multiplayer. Single player I can game, but when I try to connect to the server the app closes. I don't know anything about computers so ye...

are you using the latest version and not the "old version"?

What version of macos do you have?

Hello, Im new here and trying to get this game working. I need help with lag issues. I ran the software Fois gave here earlier and I get symmetric even I just installed expressVPN and I have new version of the game. My internet sucks overal (15-30mbps) but is it enough for war2 and does it affect on the text that Fois test gives?

As long as you get the "symmetric" result it will not work, you'll have to try some other VPN's until you found one that's working.

You can update your renderer, the one from GOG got all kinds of issues:

get this:

Extract into game folder, make sure you overwrite all files when it asks. Run the classic version. Configure your renderer via cnc-ddraw config.exe

I can join now , i think i solved it up !
thanks fois :)

Nice, so you're using ExpressVPN now?

BTW, we just tested it with some guys on discord and works if you got the premium plan, but it does not work if you got the unlimited free plan anymore. So if you want to keep using, you'll have to pay for it now.

Download Port Test:

Here are all possible test results (will make it easier to test without my help):



FullCone - Best result

OpenInternet - Best result

SymmetricUdpFirewall - Good result (Requires hole punch patch)

RestrictedCone - Good result (Requires hole punch patch)

PortRestrictedCone - Good result (Requires hole punch patch)



UdpBlocked = All connections were blocked, the test failed (Usually happens if blocked by firewall or your ISP/VPN blocked the test port)

Symmetric = Worst possible test result, will cause a lot of conflicts/lag (You can only play with those that forwarded the port, so mostly 2 player games only)


Free VPN's that DO NOT work with warcraft 2


Hotspot Shield (Does work, but only if you pay - "unlimited free" version will lag/conflict)

About the test we did in-game:

I can see that you're connected through (netherlands server), so that part is working fine. However your connection is still "Symmetric" and that's why it doesn't work.

Now I'm wondering, did you always had to use It looks to me like there's a problem with their setup, they may have done some changes that is causing the conflicts now. Maybe we'll have to try a few other VPN's and find one that doesn't have the "Symmetric" Net Type.

I updated the tool again (added some more logging in case of "Symmetric" Net Type)


I'm also getting "Symmetric" now with enabled. So it's confirmed, VPN can't be used with War2 anymore.

Does it work without HD patch? If that's the case then it's probably just a firewall issue. HD patch is using a different .exe, so that means you'll need to allow it in your firewall again

Also, make sure you never run the test tool and the game at the same time, both use the same port and are interfering with each other.
