    Has anyone else been experiencing these unrecoverable crashes in WarCraft III? Blizzard has something about it on their website, and steps you can do to try and correct it, but nothing seems to work.

    I have tried all the usual things like deleting the preferences in the Library file folder, and some of the other things they suggest. But what gives? It is the only application I use that OS X can not recover from.

    If anyone else has experienced this and has been able to find a solution, please help me out!

    I'm sorry in advance if this has been discussed already. I looked through the forum and didn't notice it, which I thought was weird because I'm sure I'm not the only one having this problem.

    I know it can't be my computer, because it happens on the iMac G5 Rev A that I just got rid of, my new Rev C iMac G5 and my PowerBook G4.

    Any help would be awesome!

    Oh, and I has repaired permissions several times...both using the Disk Utility is OS X and booting from the install DVD and using Disk Utility from there.

    There is another issue there, where it doesn't seem to properly repair my permissions, because as soon as it is completed, I can tell it to do it again and it will repair all of the same permissions.

    If anyone knows anything about this, that would be helpful too. They are mostly widget files that are being repaired, so I do not think this would be the cause of the constant WCIII crashes.

    It usually crashes in the middle of an online game (in battlenet)

    the only thing i can think of is to reinstall from scratch.... removing all warcraft 3 related files.(prefs) oh and when you do the updates make sure your computer does not sleep... that could effect the update.


    now i have to go play and check if mine crashes...

    also check blizzard forums.. somebody must be having the same problems as you...
