W3DR 1.7.0.2

Reduce Warcraft III's Battle.net delay of 250ms and LANs 100ms to any value you wish.

1.7.0.2
  • Prevented messages from being sent when you're not the host and you change your own delay. Hosts were tricked into thinking that their delay was being changed by other players.
  • Errors are now additionally logged to a file.
Download

1.7.0.1
  • Fixed minimizing issues.
  • Fixed a problem with DR not being able to detect Warcraft if it was opened after DR was opened.
  • Updated Latvian translation.
Download

1.7.0.0
  • Switched to WinPcap for chat scanning, DR is alot faster now (WinPcap is now required).
  • Added a GUI to handle settings.
  • Added some new languages.

VT said...

What error? I cant fix it if i dont even know what it is...

Linards said...

Check mail, VT ;)

1.7.0.1 GIVING ERROR TOO!!!!

AuliX said...

Hey mate, Frodo there. I want to update the translation but I don't remember the forum adress.

Thanks in advance.

AVT said...

Hey VT,

Might I ask why DR needs Vista admin access? I have WinPCap set to start on startup, so it shouldn't need Admin rights for that.

VT said...

AuliX just email me it

AVT, DR needs to access Warcraft 3.

@everybody else, I cant fix it unless you tell me what the error is.

The error is simple for me, once I started the game after 10 secondes the game freeze and I see everybody lagging, the game close after 1 minute like if i've been kick from the other players...

If you need more details just ask or i can meet you on bnet

Thanks for all
Last versions were VERY USEFULL

Juheur can you please email me.

ok i dont have .net fw 2 lol that must be it..

VT said...

Did you choose your network card?

Anonymous said...

I just played a game with .net fw2 and still the same thing and yes i chose my network card. atleast this time i got to turn dr off to continue playiing lol.

Anonymous said...

Also when I do choose my network card it says an instance is already running not sure if that helps but only sometimes it says that, other times dr restarts once i choose network card. thx for the help!
-waRz.

VT said...

Its suppose to restart automatically.

Im not sure why its popping up automatically though.

Anonymous said...

just playd 2 games seems to be ok so far now, weird. ill keep u posted anyway if it stuffs up again.
-waRz.

Anonymous said...

working awesome now! no probs anymore, only happened once since i got the .net framework 2!

MrFiendishBat said...

Have similar problem as everyone else. I choose NIC but it pops up randomly and then the game laggs like mad (unplayable) and then the game just ends.

Will try the older version to see if it's only this one having problems.

And I got the latest WinCap and all.

Anonymous said...

It is "working" for me except I still get t/o to a person who pings in LC as around 50-100 ms. Please fix this.

rusty said...

Things that I think should not happen:

When DR is open, if you alt-tab, if you select DR, the network card option window opens.

If you click [X] in the network card option window, it will close DR completely.

VT said...

@Rusty;

If the form is open and you switch to DR, it will show the form. Minimize it if you dont want to see it.

If you close it it will close DR because it isnt an option box, it is DR.

VT said...

MrFiendishBat can you please email me describing your problem?

Hi, I am using wifi network, and my network card doesnt appear on dr list...
I am using intel (R)Pro/wireless 3945ABG network. In the list apears:
-Realtek RTL 8139/810x Family fast ethernet
-Microsoft
-Ms tunner interface driver.
Thx

mike said...

Hey,

I think that the language files are not save in the proper format.

I had to re-save the french.lang in UTF-8 to enable accent in the software popups :-)

VT said...

Ok thanks mike.

jesus so you have a wireless network card inside your computer? Or do you plug yourself into the wireless router?

If its the latter you need to choose Realtek, maybe even microsoft (which could also be your wireless card).

het this version of dr makes me spike...
although everyone else is fine.
any suggestions?

Anonymous said...

-waRz.

TempesT| said...

Well you're obviously doing something wrong cause nothing like that ever happens to me.

Anonymous said...

I downloaded 1.7.0.2 but I can't get the in game commands to work, I type them in, but nothing happens I have to minimize the game and change it manualy each time. I have both .net framework 2 and that WinPcap. Any ideas?

VT said...

Nothing was changed with the commands. Type the command, wait -.5s then press enter.

BLKRDR said...

Great job, VT, awesome update. Nice work on adding a GUI.

Hi again, I have default network card inside computer.
Have I to choose microsoft?
Another error I have is when I start w3dr when warcraft is not started, it closes automatically a few secs after I click to the small icon on toolbar.
Sorry of my english.
Thx

Anonymous said...

Why does 1.7.0.2 seem to use so much CPU? I'm on an E8400 c2d and it hogs at least 50% of the CPU and my stock heatsink takes a beating. For others it completely lags them, I have 2 friends who try host with the new DR with P4 HT 3.6ghz and they both lag alot due to the high CPU usage. Hopefully we get a fix in the next update while I use the older version :D

VT said...

Yeah there's a bug somewhere.

Anonymous said...

My options window keeps popping up, and when I minimise it, it goes to the bottom left corner. Doesnt really do anything, but its a bug, I guess. My DR still works normally, just that its in the way :<

-peyn- said...

this version of DR is good though some have lag problems..same as the HOST!(ME!)..wth..how come it's very spiky when i host a game using this DR..?i try to download other 1.7 versions but i can't..damn that media fire..hope the problem in this latest version will be fixed soon..more powers VT..

Anonymous said...

hey yeah i got an older version is starting to play up but it dosnt let me download this ver. is there another website i can dl it from?

Anonymous said...

Latest version has some serious CPU problems. I have a dual-core e4300, but it still uses 50% of my total CPU resources, even AFTER warcraft 3 is closed.

raniere said...

for me tooo....
my w3 starts lagging....them I close the w3dr and open it again....
later it will give you problem again

Anonymous said...

me too.

DR using 50% of my cpu all the time. even when the game is not running. it lag so badly, i'm always cursed by the players :(

which version to revert to for best result?

Anonymous said...

to concede with what jesus said, my wifi card is not listed there too. It's an Aztech Wireless USB adapter. What were listed; MS Tunnel Interface Driver, Marvell Yukon Ethernet Controller (this is my pci ethernet card), Microsoft, and Microsoft.

Note that Microsoft appears twice in the list. What does "Microsoft" means?

Anonymous said...

yea seem to lag during the game and the NIC pops up. and yea jsut the same as everyoneelse.

Anonymous said...

first of all, i'd like to say i love your programs and appreciate the work you put into them...

But ever since i switched to 1.7.0.2 from 1.6.x series, i have had problems.
It seems to use ALOT of memory, i've had my computer crashing while playing warcraft (blue screen then reboot), and also sometimes DR crashes itself.

This version seems very buggy compared to 1.6.x series - unfortunately i dont have any logs of these problems to post but hopefully you can figure out something.

Thanks

Winpcap is installed

the latest 1702 download gives u a 0kb file. the previous version seems to dl ok.

MikeyG said...

Hey there,

I downloaded your new version but when i double click on it to start it up it comes up with an error. it says " it cant initialze propler press ok to terminate, i have wincap even tho it doesnt need it anymore i uninstall wincap aswell same thing, i downloaded older version and they the same thing aswell

Anonymous said...

problem solvers for most stuff=

1)vista need better Winpcap then it come with-download it.

2)make it run on administrator (go to properties and click box that says it)

now my speacil problem
i got dial-up, and like jesus, it wont dectect any working NIC's. i totally know what the right NIC i use is from my control panel but is there a way to MAKE WINPCAP or BANLIST to manually recognize it-cus the detect only find the non-in-use highspeed NICs it seems.

i beleive banlist ENTIRELY disregarded checking for a dial-up connection sense its a minority connection lol >:( kill
