  • Fixed bug where window would not appear.

Download

1.8.3.0
  • Updated for 1.24.
  • Removed NIC drop down box.

Thanks for the update! :)

I emailed you about the account. It is on US West and account and password are all in lower case.

If you're still have problems, have you tried reinstalling warcraft 3?

Otherwise maybe you got banned somehow? Like for dr while testing it? Have you tried making an account on a different realm/server, or installing warcraft with different cd keys?(unless you only have one copy of each like me) Or restarting your router to get a different ip address(yeah that doesn't always work)?

I'd post in the battle.net blizz tech support forums if you haven't, the do seem to respond to people asking if they're banned, but they don't always give the specifics why.

Btw clicking "options" in the menu after right clicking on w3dr's sys tray icon does nothing. Well a taskbar comes up for the program then disappears once you've clicked on it. I'm on windows xp 32 bit.

Today we salute you, Mr Creator of Delay Reducer.

Thanks to you, we can play Dota with virtually no lag. Everyone is able to KS with 100% perfection. Killstealing heroes, Killstealing creeps, and yes, lasthitting a teammate's neutrals too.

(Look at my e-peen)

Who cares about List Checker? With DR, we don't have to log out of Bnet like faggots. We don't have to /f l just to see who's online. We just double click that BoT icon, and away we go, like a pro.

Ladies choir: (i ain't no faggot)

DC isn't an option. VCK isn't an option. Ghost++ is way too complicated for us nubs to even be an option.

(Don't wanna look nooby)

So crack open an ice cold BudLight, Mr. VeeTee,
and know that us closet DR users,
do secretly appreciate you.

I was not banned, just had some Warcraft problems, reinstalling fixed it.

Does this work for 1.24b?

Ryan said...

I've found that if I have DR running when I start WC3, attempting to connect to battle.net will crash the game. I was able to run DR after logging on to battle.net, but I have not tested if it works ingame.

superman said...

doesnt work with 1.24b. program starts while logged into bnet. if you create a game and start it, the delay will be locked to 250ms

Anonymous said...

Hi this DR works like normal, however i find that when u create a game the dr resets back to 250 so i hv to keep re-enabling it every time the game loads(map like dota finishes loading) or ppl will say DR???? which is really annoying

Anonymous said...

Pls fix the reset problem

Hey, before the 1.24, 1.8.3.0 was working fine here, but now the same error I had in 1.8.2.0 came again.

Couldn not change in game delay value (998)

What should I do?

Victor said...

First of all , thanks for this wonderful aplication...

I'm using Vista x64 and since those new battle.net behaviours against tird party programs applied in the 1.24.x patches, i can't use w3dr anymore...

Here's what happen: I start WC3 in admin mode then start w3dr in admin mode too, but when I launch Battle.net I get a Memory acesse violation error from WC3...

thanks man....

Anonymous said...

my dr crashed my computer zzz then i had to delate it :(

NoThlnG said...

Really, please upload it to 2 sources (mediafire maybe)

I really hate to wait 400 seconds for program less than 100 kb.

The_Risen_One said...

Yo, VT, I never had the chance to thank you for this awesome software, however two things are bothering me.

Whenever I disconnect from Battle.net (frequent) with W3DR running, I presume to hit B (to relog onto Battle.net), and it crashes, every time. I can e-mail you the error, not sure what your e-mail is though.

Also, I've always wondered, does this program merely just set the latency, or does it magically handle the way packets work? I've always had better playability with W3DR at 40 ms than VCK at 75 ms.

You can message me on Battle.net (this name) if I don't check back, I might forget.

Zyl said...

This seems to work fine. You start the program, start WC3, go into LAN or battle.net, start a game, Alt+Tab, right-click the programs icon in the task bar and set the value into a field in the dropdown box to something lower like 85 which appears to be common.

LAN default is 100 ms.
Battle.net default is 250 ms.

However, just as The_Risen_One is stating above, WC3 will crash when you are trying to go to the login screen again after leaving battle.net once while the software was running.

You will have to restart the program or deal with the crash.

I don't play custom game (user hosting) on battle.net but Ladder game ( blizzard server hosting ), does this help?

this sucks :( i keep disconnecting ever time i remake a game

Anonymous said...

Hi VT! First at all GJ making this useful tool. Now I have a question.

When I have hosted one game, and finish this, the next time that Im going to host the game crashes with a memory error?

Some solution?

VT, we love your programs, we love the dr u made, it's the best one out there. We all are coming in here everyday wishing oneday we can get an update with it for new patch.
If I find out there's new patch for dr one day morning, that day is clearly having a lucky start.=)

DBX_5 said...

Seems you have to restart DR every time you want to host again and you cant start it till you have created the game other wise it crashes the game, is there a fix for this or will there be a new release which will fix that ?

Anonymous said...

nah he stopped updating his software cos he plays HoN now (heroes of newerth)

thats so gay

Csanád said...

Dear developer!

Patch 1.24e came out and if I run W3DR and then try to start a quick game Warcraft 3 crashes! Using delay reducer is legal right? If yes, please fix this I enjoyed matches without huge delay :)

Anonymous said...

how about release source code?

Mynthaster said...

Create an new DR pls if you start an game and write !dr xx you get an error but when you do it from desktop you get an error later but not after the game :S

Anonymous said...

it doesnt matter when i start my DR at any random time from adding a friend to banning someone with B-list wc3 still gives me and error and my game crash's only started doing this since the new patch - i think this is blizzards thoughts, a random guy makes something better than us! so lets update and fuck them all! they did the same thing with world of warcaft with a mod that allowed you to zone out of instances faster they updated within a few days and this mod was BANABLE by use and they updated to stop people from using it.. i think they have done the same here. and with VT no longer updating i think the days of DR are over unless some software engineer's step up!

Anonymous said...

I am having the same problem

GODLIKEONE said...

Hi VT,


I love DR. But I am forced to use VCK instead and BL becuase DR crashes my game normally at the end of a match, when I get a whisper or sometimes when I click to last hit a creep randomly.

Sometimes its good and just at the end of the match which is annoying but I can deal with it.

The problem is I just had 5 games consecutively where it crashed within 3 min of game start its really annoying.


Can you do an update or explain to me why it is doing this.

Yours is definitely the ALPHA DELAY REDUCER program but the crashing makes it a fail program.

Cheers GODLIKEONE
