I'm thought we would start a thread about cool hidden things in the games you play.
Warcraft 2 if you typed in Disco in the expansion set it would play this really funny song-I'm a Medievil man!
In the Starcraft expansion if you are in a zerg level and you type Radio free zerg you have the overmind rap;)

OK - so it's not a game at all - but...

if you are the proud (?) owner of MS Word 98, and you've made your language preference English(US), type in:

"unable to follow directions"

Highlight the text, then go to the "Thesaurus" for a list of optional phrases to use in it's place.

One of them is:

"unable to get an erection"


:D :p :) :( :rolleyes:


...silly, really.

There were some screenshots posted at a Warcraft site. You can find a Zergling, a Hydra, and a Terran Marine hidden in the woods during a Night Elf level. I'll try to find to screenshots. I guess we know what Starcraft 2 will look like ;)

I found this statement on a Starcraft site :

if you play(or cheat) your way through warcraft 3 on hard mode you see a small 30sec. movie... marines attac some zlings and hydras and then firebats come and destroy everything left. you have to watch through the endgame credits too.

here is a pic :

Awsome!! I am on the orc levels so I still have alittle ways to go. I can't wait to see it. Star2 will be so sweet I can't wait until it comes out.
I have yet to cheat cause I don't know the codes.(DON"T TELL ME)

I have been playing the single player a lot since by Bnet does not work. I played the humans and undead already (each a night apiece.) I'm on the orcs and I must say that my favorite race is the undead, just because of their workers (just like the protoss. :D) I won't tell you any cheat codes since I don't know any myself. :D :D

Not surprising from the company where you select the word "Mexican" and use the Thesaurus and get "wetback", but thankfully less offensive.

wc3 sucks :( sc > wc3

is it just me or is wc3 a little bit difficult. I mean i played wc2 and starcraft and did fine at those. I just keep reading these people saying how incredibly easy the single player campaign is.... well im having a little trouble with it. (troubles didnt actually start until the last undead chapter)

but anyway, are these people using cheat codes to get gold faster or what? or do i just suck at it...... maybe with more practice.....

you don't suck, zed.. i do :) No, really, i breezed through wc2 and sc, too, but I'm having trouble with war3. I don't know why.. because of that, i haven't played single player in a while. Been busy with battle.net. Mostly playing custom games, but just started some ladder games. I must say... I SUCK! Ask some of the people on these boards that I have played with and they will tell you.

Anyway, my point is, you do not suck. even if you do suck, there's always someone out there that sucks more than you do... ME! :D

You know of any decent Easter Eggs? :)

I've been looking around in RtCW, but have not found any.

there are a few oddities in the Undead lvl 2... if you take ghouls or a meatwagon and knock down some trees on the left side of the map you will find some sasquaches (sp?) its kinda funny, and then there is another place that you can get to by knocking down more trees that is called the Pandaren relaxation area... it does something kewl when you get there... i have a pic but it is not on this computer, i will post it when i get back to my house.

also at the bottom of the same map to the left is a sheep with an interesting name... he is supposed to do somehting if you approach him, but i didnt see it.... also in the same map, in the human town near the bottom across the broken bridge Tichondrius is there messing witht the villagers.... kewl stuff

anybody else know any others? Im sure there are plenty of things to be found.

Heh, I remember where that is from.

It was a Blizzard April Fools joke; the then unannounced races would include a race of brutal panda warriors. :)

That's pretty funny. :)

LOL that is really funny!! I like how War3 is difficult I enjoy a good challenge in a game. The AI is really smart, and I find beating a comp in custom is hard!!

Hey Hitman what is your Bent name on War3 so we can play sometime!
I am XDarkSniperX you can find me in channel Macrumors.

Rush Limbaugh Understands in the game of Myst where when played normally one of the chracters speaks some kind of gibberish but played backwards in QuickTime it says, "Rush Limbaugh Understands"

weird.

I guess we know what political affiliation the Myst/Cyan coders are. :D
