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.
