W3DR Instructions


Errors while trying to start the application?
Then you need .Net Version 2 Framework and WinPcap.

Changing Delay
Right click the icon in the task bar.
Enter your desired value into the text box and press Enter.
If the text box is disabled it means the program cannot find Warcraft III.

Switch Languages
Right click the icon in the task bar.
Click Options then click on the desired language from the drop down menu.

Change NICs
Right click the icon in the task bar.
Click Options then click on the your primary NIC from the drop down menu.

In game Commands
To use in game commands type the command then wait ~0.5s then press enter. A sound will be played to indicate the command was detected. Depending on the command, another sound may be played to indicate the command has finished processing.

Checking delay

Usable by players and host (in the game lobby and whilst in the game).

Changing delay
!dr 70

Use /drlp to get the last results (it will be put in the clipboard)

Country checks
Use /drlc to get the last results (it will be put in the clipboard)

  • You dont have to remake the game if you forget to open W3DR, you can just open it while in game and change the latency.
  • You dont have to have W3DR open the whole game. Change it once and all future games will be delay free (until you close Warcraft).
  • This is only for the host, if the host is not using W3DR then you will have delay, if the host is using W3DR then all players will have reduced delay (even if players dont have W3DR).
  • Players using GGC, LC, Hamachi and LAN can reduce delay using W3DR.
  • Vista users need admin privileges.
  • My ping method uses the same method as ping.exe (32 bytes), for reference; banlist uses 18 bytes so my pings will probably be a little bit higher. Times out at 1000ms.
  • If you only use English and dont want the Language menu to appear or dont want the language folder then just delete the Language folder in your W3DR directory.
  • It might be a good idea to put [DR] in the title of your games so others will know they are joining a delay free game, it also allows players who only join delay free games to easily identify games.
    eg. [dr] ap pros, banlisted, USA

You can just have all the files in the one folder. W3AR and W3DK use the same functions.dll.


It will be fixed in the next version, stay tuned.

Trigun said...

Hey, DR is an Ace program but when i try to run it now for some reason it says 'Please identify your network interface card' and in the box next to NIC it is blank, i do not understand how to fix this, and have had the problem with every version of DR2 since yesterday

Anonymous said...

Hello, what is the recommended values for and lan and hamachi games? I don't understand why somebody use 80 and somebody 110. Why not simply use always 250?

Anonymous said...

cause 250 is higher and less means better!

I downloaded 1.8.2, and I can start the application and change the delay values, but somehow cant access the options at all... in-game, nothing happens too when I type !DR of anything.

I have winpcap and microsoft NET2. whats wrong?

Anonymous said...

I cannot access the options at all, only if i open two delay reducers it will it let me change the language but it does not give any options in the language spot. Also same problem as person above me in which it does not let me do /drc or /drip.

I also have winpcap and NET2 installed.

Please help me, Ty

Hey VT, thx 4 ur DR
Btw, I want 2 ask u somehin about my error. When I run W3DR and right click on W3DR icon on taskbar, the NIC and language selection is empty ! So, I can't user the DR

Can u tell me what's the problem and how to fix it ? Thx very much VT =)

Anonymous said...

Hey, thanks for the program. I love it now that I switched from another program due to the recent Warden changes.

However, I use Windows 7 x64 (build 7100) and although the program itself works as well as the right clicking, but the options menu never completely opens. It says a window is open on the taskbar but doesn't really open.

It would be cool if you could update the program to be compatible.

Thanks in advance.

JaeWon said...

Hey, I recently downloaded DR, but whenever I turn it on to change the ping using the icon on the taskbar, there is an error message that says, "Could not access W3 (5)." When I try to exit this error message, so does the icon. Help!? I did download the .NET thingie.

CryTeX said...

Hey VT, your DR works fine, there is no delay. But there is one thing thats a litle bit strange to me. Everytime I host a game in
(DotA, Platform Escape, etc.),with DR, its like playing in Slowmotion.(No Delay) I don't know why its like this, so I do hope that you can give me an answer.

BTW: My computer DO NOT suck, and my internet connection DO NOT suck either.

Hey I got a simular problem with net valu(NET-1)and the game.dll. I got An other program that works in the simular way! It Is called Dota client, it also has a Delay Reducer built in it. The dota client Is mostly USed in Dota League: have some info about the latest version:

- Robust Anti-hack Client/Server System for Warcraft III Custom Games
- Complete DotA-based Statistical Tracking (Kills, Deaths, Creep Kills, Denies, Assists, APM, etc)
- Advanced Custom Game Latency Reduction Controller for both and LAN Games
- Warcraft III Automation
- Useful Misc features such as Window Locking and Countdown elimination

I have no idea If it works on other games than dota(it probably does)

Here is a link to the webpage:

Hope This Helps :)

Add me to friends on wc3 OR PM me on wc3 account "The_War_dragon"(northerend) if u have any questions.

I will try to answer them :)

VT said...

have some info about the latest version:

Correct me if im wrong but DC hasnt been updated since 1.21.

By the way, i deleted your other advertising post. There's no reason for you to advertise DC on the W3DK page. That's just illogical.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for updating this version.
It finally works after downloading from serveral websites.

I really enjoy using [W3DR] and it makes my games popular to join.

Thanks a lot

Anonymous said...

Well, Can I ask a question... What does !dr exactly does.. If it reduces the delay.. What is this use of the value? On another word Why to write a desired value? What does it exactly does.. And what does delay reduce means.. Does it mean that it reduces the delay which players suffers if they are from different countries? Or it is something else.. If it is what does it exactly mean.. Thanks in advance.
