Warcraft 2 Expansion Set

  • Incompatibility problem with old saved games is fixed
  • Expansion Heroes and the Draenor tileset are now available in the Map Editor, but are only usable in v1.33. Older versions of Warcraft II will use the "wasteland" tileset in place of the Draenor tileset, but cannot open PUDs that use the new Legendary Heroes.

  • Attempt to randomize team colors
Fixes
  • EXORCISM SPELL - In the original version there were problems casting this spell near the top of the map. This has been fixed.
  • COLOR RANDOMIZATION - In multi-player games, team colors are now randomized in addition to the starting locations. All players must be using v1.2 or higher for the randomization to be enabled.
  • CHEATFIX - In versions before v1.4 players can change unit types in memory (for example changing a peasant to a wizard), and then cast spells using the changed unit. Network packets are now completely validated for invalid actions to prevent these occurrences.

Warcraft II v1.23 • Warcraft II update (coincides with Expansion Pack release) (11/01/96)

Bug fixes in 1.23 • Fix to “Sound cutting off” problem. • Reworked CD-ROM code to be compatible with just about every single CD-ROM drive. Also works if you have more than 1 CD-ROM drive plugged in. • Fixed LC 575 play-through problem. • Fixed “bad char in vsprintf xx” error. • Fixed zone choosing on networks with a large number of zones (more than 64 zones). • Now Text-to-Speech works independantly of Speech Recognition being loaded. • Now warns when you save a game on a full hard disk (would just silently fail to save in previous versions), and also warns on other disk-related errors. • Fix to saved games that was causing loaded games to behave improperly • Now imports scrap when application starts up (copy, start Warcraft, then paste into IP field works).

New features in 1.23 • Added Copy and Paste to all Text entry, to better enter TCP/IP addresses from IRC connections, and to give Mac Users the edge in “Cheat Code Wars” • Auto-eject of the wrong CD if you forgot to put the Warcraft CD in. • Puts up abort/retry file dialog if error reading from CD-ROM (the app would just quit in earlier versions). • Switches faster between Warcraft and other apps. • Can quit from more places in the game (in movies, from the mission objectives dialog, and from the victory/defeat screen). • Allows FKEYs to work during the game (ie screen capture). • Allows Custom PUDs to be stored in subfolders within the “Custom PUDs” folder.
