    Hey guys,
    So I've been playing this game for many years now and it has always worked fine for me. Up until today, I was watching a replay and there was a bug, in that as buildings were building.. there was no image to show them... only a health bar. If somebody built a building it would build, I just couldn't see it. No images appear. Sorry if that's confusing. Anyways, so I decided to just re-install it all together since deleting the preferences didn't work. I've installed the game 3 times now today, and everytime I run the game it never gets to the menu screen. The screen goes black, pauses for a bit then unexpectedly quits. EVERYTIME. I don't know how to fix it and I'm very frustrated. I followed the install and uninstall instructions in the read me file.

    Any help? :( :( :(

    Is the replay version the same as your WC3? WC3 just recently had an update so if the replay is older than say a month or 2 old it may be incompatible.

    Sorry guys, problem solved.

    I had to delete 2 DivX component files in my Library/Quicktime folder.

    Glad it works now! :D
    Blizzard should mention that in the Read Me files from now on.
