    Unhappy Need help.

    "Warcraft III was unable to initialize DirectX. Please ensure you have DirectX 8.1 or newer installed and that your display drivers are current."



    I get this message everytime i start war3 and yes its a cracked version... don't really understand whats wrong with it but i think that the Easiest Windowed program in the Maple thread could have caused some problems. The game did work for quite awhile until one day it decided to do this so anyone got any ideas of whats wrong?

    Looks like you'll have to buy it... Is your graphics card updated ? or is it a internal gfx card?

    yeah graphics cards has all the latest drivers the time it happened was about the time easiest window stopped working which changes your direct X so i'm guessing its that O_O but nothing seems to solve the problems even replacing the files that easiest window changes didn't work... or maybe that made my problem worse
