I answered Ragner in Russian, let me give you a translation of my answer here, albeit with a slight delay:

About cheaters and cheating in the Warcraft II community

Regarding yesterday's revelations from our players:

1. Cheating in any online game is unacceptable - thereby destroying the entire atmosphere of trust between players and the healthy spirit of competition.
Cheaters are the reason why many online games lose popularity.
For example, this is the main reason why our English-speaking comrades do not want to meet newcomers and throw people with new nicknames out of their games. They prefer to play thousands of games with those they have known for a long time, instead of allowing someone new to join, thinking that he might turn out to be a cheater and break the game.
We, as the community administration, are worried and would like to change this situation, but this is not in our power: it is the players' choice to play with whoever they want.

2. Every player understands: cheating is deception.
But the forbidden fruit is sweet. I'm tempted to try it. After all, no one will know, most likely, if everything is done carefully. But one person will know for sure: the person who decided to “try.” Conscience is such a thing, it will gnaw. Today, once you outwitted the others, even if only “for testing”, “as an experiment”, you experienced a feeling of your own superiority. But then for the rest of your life you have to live with this, look these people in the eyes, even virtually. And you can’t talk about this with anyone, or open your soul - after all, they will immediately judge you, reject you, stop playing with you, and stop considering you an honest person. And my conscience gnaws! And it will gnaw and destroy for the rest of its life. Or until the truth comes out.
And think before you “try” - is it worth it to conduct such “experiments”?

3. Still, admitting to deception is much better for the person himself than keeping it to himself. Guilt greatly destroys the psyche and sometimes the body. And for what? Hide from other people and destroy yourself? Is it worth it? Yes, by making such confessions, you inevitably lose your reputation in front of others, and this is the price to pay. But the main thing is that you restore your reputation to yourself! You remove a stone from your soul. The main thing is that you understand that you definitely won’t do anything like that in the future, and you become better. Of course, you lose faith from others, but it will be restored over time, the main thing is faith in yourself!
We will not take any measures from the administration:
- firstly, if you confessed yourself, it’s much better than being “caught by the hand,”
- secondly, and this follows from the first, if you confessed, most likely you will no longer want to take the dubious path,
- thirdly, retribution still comes in the form of loss of trust of other people. But this is the price you have to pay to clear your conscience. And this retribution is ultimately necessary for the person himself in order to cleanse himself. But this is beyond the competence of project administrators.

I urge everyone who has something to confess to do so. Experiencing the consequences in the form of judging other people will be much better for the person himself than constantly experiencing pangs of conscience. However, of course, this is everyone’s personal choice.

Support Requests / Re: Too many password tries on
« on: February 09, 2024, 09:10:27 AM »

I play from time to time. I was trying to remember my password and I did too many tries it boot me out of I would create a new account because I don't care about that account, but I can't even entry menu.

And I didn't read any error message, so, how long I will be banned or do I have to do something?

Thank you!
Yes, hackers trying to bruteforce passwords from time to time, so we have to make some simple protection system against them.
pvpgn and war2 doesn't know about password bruteforcing, so there's no any messageboxes included.

Ban should expire itself in 12 hours or something like that...

maybe something changed on your ISP side?
Many internet providers began to move their ip's to gray zone.
You can check your real ip using any "check my ip" services...

10 / - new mirror for
« on: August 15, 2023, 05:45:51 PM »
Just hosted the mirror for old ftp service.

It's not "ftp", it's http and https.
Both works the same way:

Now contains the same files as, but have different location: - location - Russia. - location - Atlanta, GA.

Please, check that and let me know which one works faster (or maybe some more troubles will appear?)

to be able to view smurf accounts.
I'd say looks like a very bad idea as for me.
If someone will look and know how it works, that will mean everybody will know how it works. And how to bypass it then.

12 / WarCraft 2 - THE MIST TURNS RED - New custom campaign
« on: August 01, 2023, 04:18:36 AM »
Several months of hard and secret work resulted in the creation of one of the most advanced additional campaigns for Warcraft 2!
The latest technologies and developments were involved, various previously unseen game mechanics were introduced.

The War2ru team has once again raised the bet on the quality and level with which new campaigns should be released!

In addition to the ordinary missions (oh, no, they are not ordinary at all!), in which the AI has become MUCH smarter and stronger,
for the first time in the history of Warcraft 2, we have done pre-game TUTORIAL, in the format of a small mission (in the best traditions of newer strategies, for example, Warcraft 3).

During the training, you will be able to appreciate the new control mechanics, new unit abilities, new icons and sprites.

Also, the campaign provides TWO difficulties of the game!

But that's not all! During the game you will be surprised more than once.

But this, we are sure, will not prevent you from passing our campaign.

You might even be able to find our secrets and Easter eggs, who knows?..
Of course, the campaign has a simple but fascinating stand-alone storyline that will keep you entertained:

The king of the country of Lakitor, one of the kingdoms of the Old World, has received disturbing news about the severance of ties with a distant but rich Colony in the New World.
There are rumors that recently local Orc tribes in the colonized lands began to behave suspiciously actively.
Now a significant part of the country's budget is cut off from the kingdom. And, unfortunately, there is still a long and hard war with the neighboring country of Dorlanes. The king faces a difficult choice: either the continuation of the war, or an attempt to return the Colony.
King Lakhar III makes a choice.

So what, warrior? Stop resting!
It's time to show what you really stand for!
May the Holy Light protect you!


Any wishes, suggestions, comments are welcomed!

Just checked logs:
Account "Lightbringer-" have been probably hacked and used for some unauthorized activity.

That's why i just checked the list of admins and removed old ones from the list.
Please, let me know if someone should have some access permissions and loose them.

14 / Re: AI improved sprites res
« on: March 03, 2023, 04:46:34 PM »
Nice job!
I think that would be possible to do something with that improved sprites!

Probably could be very usefull to do the same for warcraft 1 sprites. We have a WinWar project, the whole 100% compatible code of warcraft: Orcs & Humans:,5635.0.html

Could be great to make it Full HD. Though Zelya said about ugly upscale. But if you will be able to make it beautiful, maybe he will be glad to increase the resolution.
As i remember, the main problem was related to no one who can make good sprites.
Maybe you can try to do something? Though Zelya is not so active here now...

15 / Re: Deleted Names Issue
« on: February 15, 2023, 02:28:23 AM »
@iL are names being stored on the cache or server itself? I was thinking up to this point they were being inserted into a database table.
Not sure about these troubles.
Yes, there's a cache, theres also a database.
Is something happens with DB, names being updated in cache.
Some names could be easily stored in cache only or in DB in inconsistent state.
At least everything should work fine now with DB.
