Does your legit version have the acid launcher?
Maybe try the twilight forum under technical

two responses on TG forums.


AFAIK the latest update version available is 1.25b, and we're still using 1.24e on Twilight PvPGN.

Unfortunately you will have to run 2 copies of Warcraft III, or at the very least 2 copies of the files that are different.

The files that are different between the versions are:
game.dll
Storm.dll
w3l.exe
w3lh.dll
war3.exe
War3Patch.mpq
World Editor.exe

You should be able to write a batchfile (.bat) that would allow you to toggle between the 2 copies.


The 1.26 patch is out, and yes you will need the old files. The failsafe 1.24e patch should be able to revert your war3 version to the one needed. You can either run a version switcher or you will have to have 2 copies, the former being less tedious.

Basically, on your "fake" folder (which is still legit if you own the game), use the failsafe patch and play on twilight with it.

For your "legit" folder, leave as is if you wish to play international (though you WILL lag)
