    [GUIDE] Patching Warcraft 3 with WVS

    Warcraft Version Switcher



    Warcraft Version Swticher (WVS) is a program which can switch/change Warcraft 3 versions easily. Just select the version, and it'll take care of the rest. It can also do a few other things but those are out of context.

    In this simple guide, I'll show you how to use this software and provide links to download it (alone with "version files").


    # What are version files?
    It is a zip file containing a few warcraft 3 files which hold the version data.
    Please keep in mind that the "skirmish" maps also get changed during update. Version files usually dont contain these maps to make the file size smaller.


    Without any further ado, here are the file links:

    1. WVS (stripped) 600KB
    2. TFT Version 1.20e.zip 30MB
    3. TFT Version 1.21b.zip 30MB
    4. TFT Version 1.22a.zip 30MB
    5. TFT Version 1.23a.zip 30MB
    6. TFT Version 1.24a.zip 30MB
    7. TFT Version 1.24b.zip 30MB
    8. TFT Version 1.24c.zip 30MB
    9. TFT Version 1.24d.zip 30MB
    The links above, are Direct Download Links (DDL).
    No rapidsharecrap, no mediafire/megaupload, no linkbucks.


    I'm sure most of you guys know how to use these files.

    For those who dont know, here's a short guide with pictures.
    I will not explain everything; just the things you need to do to get the latest version (currently 1.24d).


    There are two ways.

    First one is simple.

    • Download the version file
    • Extract it over your warcraft 3 folder
    • Done!
    Second one is a little bit complex but it will allow you to easily switch between versions.

    Step 1: Download WVS


    This is the core program written by Ugge.
    Click here to download: WVS (stripped) 600KB




    Step 2: Extract WVS


    No need to install it, just extract it as shown.
    You can use windows zip extractor or winzip or winrar.

    Just open the file; drag the folder "Warcraft Version Switcher" in to your Warcraft directory.






    Step 3: Download Version File(s)


    This is the version file for 1.24d or 1.24.3.6384
    You can similarly download and add other versions in your WVS.

    Click here to download: TFT Version 1.24d.zip 30MB




    Step 4: Cut Version Files(s)


    Once you have downloaded the version file(s),
    it is time to move them into the folder "wvs" inside "Warcraft Version Switcher."

    Just "cut" as shown in here and go to step 5.






    Step 5: Paste Version Files(s)


    Now go to wvs folder (inside "Warcraft Version Switcher").
    Paste the version file(s) in there.






    Step 6: Start WVS


    Now we are ready to start the program.
    double click in the wvs.exe







    Step 6: Error?!


    If your registry keys are damaged, it is possible that WVS will not know where to find your warcraft game. It will generate an error and ask you to locate your warcraft 3 game folder.

    If you dont get any error, jump to step 9 (hooray!)







    Step 7: Show Warcraft 3 Location


    Now browse to your warcraft 3 game folder.
    Notice how the "warcraft 3" folder icon is "opened".
    You MUST select proper folder or you'll get error in step 8.






    Step 8: Confirm WVS knows where your Warcraft is located


    After you have located your warcraft 3,
    WVS will check if it can find warcraft 3 and will notify you of the situation.

    A restart of WVS is necessary.






    Step 9: Switch Version!


    All ready and set. Now you are ready to switch to any of your version files with a few clicks only!

    Switch version > Double click a version file > click Yes!






    Step 10: Confirm Everything Worked Properly!


    Now, exit WVS and run Warcraft 3 (normally or through garena or any other way you like)

    Notice the version number at the bottom right corner.






    It is
    • 1.24 for 1.24a
    • 1.24.1 for 1.24b
    • 1.24.2 for 1.24c
    • 1.24.3 for 1.24d







    Notes:

    • These WVS files are zipped by myself. They are working perfectly as 100s of people are using these already.
    • If your warcraft 3 language is different, these version files will work but some of the things might appear in English instead of your language.
    • I have no idea whether these version files will work for Mac OS or not.
    • THIS GUIDE, VERSION FILES, WVS ARE PROVIDED "AS IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.
    • WARCRAFT 3 THE FROZEN THRONE IS A COPYRIGHT OF BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT LTD.
    • YOU MAY NOT USE THESE VERSION FILES UNLESS YOU LEGALLY OWN A COPY OF WARCRAFT 3 THE FROZEN THRONE.
