    Pls help me!! i have installed warcraft 3 and then frozen throne. the game got no problem going into the starting page where u choose 'battlenet', ' single player' etc.. however, when i try to create a game the screen will freeze. cant even press alt-ctrl-del. have to manuel restart.

    my laptop specs are:
    macbook, 4gb ram, 2.4ghz processor, gma x3100, using bootcamp 2.0 to run window xp professional.

    is the freezing due to the graphic card cannot support the game?? because the starting screen where "blizzard" word comes out is like very grainy.

    someone pls help!!!

    You have a firewall blocking connections. Once you fix your firewall, the freezing will stop.

    Also, if you run in a window, a popup message may be displayed behind. To do this, select properties on a shortcut to Frozen Throne and enclose the target field with quotes eg. "c:\program files\warcraft iii\frozen throne.exe" and add a space then -w to look like this
    "c:\program files\warcraft iii\frozen throne.exe" -w

    Have you tried running the game in OSX and seeing if your symptoms cure themselves?

    Are you sure that your CD is Windows only? All Warcraft 3 CDs that I'm aware of are hybrid Mac/PC (mine certainly is).

    There were a small batch of Warcraft III CD's pressed without the Macintosh partition, I know this because I was unlucky enough to buy one!! A quick email to UK Blizzard support and I soon had the correct CD.

    So it was simply a mistake, or they intentionally made a batch of Windows-only CDs?

    Is it ok if I use a non-commercial version of warcraft to install on my MAC's Windows...
    I use a key gen to get CD key... and I dont play on also, just for my own entertainment only.
    But why it is crash... the game is too expensive to buy when you don't really need an original CD key to lay on
    please help... I love dota:(

    I just had an idea. Navigate to your Warcraft directory, go into Maps->Download select all the maps and move them out. If one of these maps is corrupted, Warcraft may crash/lockup while loading the preview. If that helps, add the maps in a few at a time to try and find the culprit.

    Problem is it not even go inside the folder yet... even I just fresh install (no extra maps), can't even go in single play mode...
    I think something to do with the Bootcamp Dual Boot method. Maybe when got time, I will reinstall dual boot but let the Window handle the boot then the driver for all of the device will better, I think! hopefully that day is soon.:apple: is GREAT, but BootCamp is not... lol:D
    But I still :(

    Could it be from a lack of access to the folders/files? What if you try installing to your home folder (or desktop) just to make sure the permissions are correct?

    I try to copy whole warcraft folder, of my friend which is play perfectly on all of my friends PC (not MAC OS). I put it on the desktop, turn the firewall, as the way above there. But still same thing happen, go in the game smoothly, but crash on CREATE GAME.... I think MAC not for game already!:eek:
