Server.War2.ru / [Release] Warcraft II Widescreen / High resolution patch
« on: October 29, 2021, 05:01:11 PM »

Warcraft II Widescreen / High resolution patch

Download and extract all files into your game folder (overwrite existing files).

To configure your resolution and other settings (e.g. windowed mode) use Warcraft II Config.exe.


Please report any bugs you find in here or on discord: https://discord.com/invite/b7gttyy


Download (Tested with GOG.com, new Battle.net (January 2024) version and War2Combat): https://www.moddb.com/downloads/warcraft-ii-widescreen


Note: Linux/macOS users need to run Warcraft II Config.exe once so it can add the needed dll override.



Live Streaming

For live streaming/recording with OBS the preferred way to capture the game is now "Game Capture". It's also possible to use "Display Capture" or "Window Capture" but to make those two options working you'll need to open "dd-hd.ini" in notepad and change the line "nonexclusive=false" to "nonexclusive=true".

Full tutorial for live streaming is here: https://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,6211.0.html



Lobby map plugin

Lambchops fixed his lc.dll and lobby_map plugin to make it working with the patch, you can download it here:

The plugin will fix the laggy cursor on windows 8/10 and it also supports high refresh rate monitors, it will enable a hardware cursor that responds much quicker than the normal warcraft 2 cursor. Additionally it also allows you to customize your cursor using standard windows animated cursor files.


Note: If it doesn't work properly then you might need to update your config/ddraw first, get the latest version here: https://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,5015.0.html

Mods & Development / Plugin package
« on: April 04, 2020, 07:19:40 PM »
Here you can download all my plugins in 1 package (it's easier to update for me like this...)

Extract war2-plugins.zip into your plugin folder and that's it. If you don't have a plugin folder then install WarCombat 46 standard or full.



The following plugins are included:

HardwareCursor Plugin - Can fix the laggy cursor on Windows 8/10
Ignore Plugin - Can permanently ignore players, even after a restart of the game
PlaySound Plugin - Plays a sound of your choice on events (Game Start/Join game)
NoteBot Plugin - Fixes the incorrect "nobody can join your game" message
AutoWarLat Plugin - Enables the WarLat patch automatically on game start (Same as setting the latency to high and then to low manually)
SmoothScroll Plugin - Changes keyboard and mouse scrolling to scroll 1 cell at a time rather than 2 cells (to get a smooth scroll effect)
MMblack Plugin - Changes the mini map color of the black player to any color you like (by default = pink) without changing the units/buildings colors



Download: https://github.com/FunkyFr3sh/Warcraft-II-Plugins/releases/latest/download/war2-plugins.zip

The plugin will save whoever you've ignored into a file named "ignorelist.txt" inside of the plugins folder and will load the file automatically when you start the game. This way you only need to ignore someone once and it will stick forever (until you unignored him...).

It can also ignore messages in the pre-game lobby and in-game, you should not be able to see any messages from the ignored player at all.


To ignore someone just type "/ignore playername" as usual.

How to connect to the war2.ru server using the GOG.com version of Warcraft II


Step 1
    Make sure your game is not running, download the war2ru_gateway.bat and run it.


Step 2
    Start your game, click on "Multi Player Game" -> "Enhanced".

    Now "Select Connection Method" -> "Battle.net".

    Choose gateway "WarCraft2 Server" and click "Connect".



Note: If you fail to connect to the server then make sure you inserted your CD-Key



Optional Extras


Download Widescreen / High resolution patch
    https://forum.war2.ru/index.php?topic=6461.0


Download HolePunch patch
    By default you will need to forward port 6112 UDP in your router to be able to host games.
    If you don't know how to do that then you can also download the hole punch patch here instead.


Download Warcraft II Config program
    If your GOG.com install isn't working or there are graphical glitches (e.g. text is not being displayed properly) then download the Warcraft II Config program here.
    You can enable windowed mode via the config program or by pressing Alt+Enter while the game is running. A right-click will lock the cursor to the window in windowed mode.

Server.War2.ru / How do we improve the new player experience?
« on: March 23, 2020, 09:21:55 PM »
New players can host their own games now without port forwarding which helped a lot. But I'm wondering what else we could change to improve the new player experience?


How do new players find each others games? What if we change the default game name for new players to "For beginners only" so they will be able to find each other?

We could also write a list with hints and each time they join a game it will display a random hint?

Any other ideas?

Normally when you host a game without having your port forwarded you will receive the following message:



The message isn't correct anymore because everyone can host games now using the HolePunch patch. New players are confused and think they can't host, so I had to solve the problem...


The plugin will detect if the HolePunch patch is installed and change the message to the following one:

I'm currently playing a hardcore edition made by a fan on the main war2 installer which allows you to play classic campaigns on a very hard difficulty
it's a very enjoyable mod to be honest

This plugin will play a sound of your choice on certain events. e.g. the host just started the game or someone joined your game. It's useful in case your game is minimized and you don't want to miss the game start or you want to hear when someone joined your game.


You can replace the .wav files with any sounds you want, I got the ones that are included from here: https://www.soundjay.com/

If you only want to get notified about a game start but you don't want to get notified about someone joining a game then just delete the matching .wav files.



Filenames: JoinGame.wav, StartGame.wav, LeaveGame.wav, Message.wav, PrivateMessage.wav, GameEnd.wav, Kicked.wav

Example:
Use "JoinGame.wav" if you want the sound to play no matter if the game window got the focus or not.

Use "JoinGameNoFocus.wav" if you only want the sound to play if the game doesn't have the focus / is minimized (Make sure you don't have "JoinGame.wav" in the folder)

Use "JoinGameFocus.wav" if you only want the sound to play if the game is active and got the focus (Make sure you don't have "JoinGame.wav" in the folder)

Mods & Development / Warcraft II Config program

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

I've been working on a patch that allows you to host games without port forwarding (nor change any settings).

To be able to use it you'll have to download the wsock32.dll file below and place it into your game folder while the game is not running.

Both, the host and the player that likes to join the game will need to have the file in their game folder, it doesn't work if only one of them got the file.

Note: The patch is also included in War2Combat 46 in case you don't know how to copy a file into your game folder:
http://en.war2.ru/downloads/


Even if you've already forwarded your port and you can host games, you can still download the file (It will allow you to join games hosted by those that didn't forward the port).


It should work for around 80% of the players. It does very highly likely not work for those that often cause "conflicts" (Symmetric NAT), but you can give it a try anyways if you like.

It only works on the main .ru server, the backup server doesn't support it yet.


** Edit by mousetopher **

NOTE: after you install the file you still might see the message from "note" saying your ports aren't forwarded -- that's ok! as long as you have "HP" by your username on the status page then you're good to go :newthumbsup:
