Patch 129 Warcraft 3 clean install quick guide Some folks seem to be having issues with patching to 129 as many of us used 126a for W3arena.  Here's a short guide on what worked for me. Your mileage may vary, but hopefully this is helpful for people.


Step 1 - Back up your maps/downloads and replays folder, as well as anything else you want to keep (screenshots, customkeys, etc).

Step 2 - Uninstall every version of Wc3 you have on your computer. After running uninstall, go back to c:/program files and completely delete the Warcraft III folder as well. Uninstall does not remove everything, so you will want to make sure to have a 100% clean slate.

Step 3 - If you have physical CDs, install RoC/TFT that way.  If you purchased online thru Blizzard's site, go to battle.net and log into your account, download the game client.  Blizzard should just give 1 client to install RoC and TFT.

Step 4 - Run Wc3, select gateway + login to bnet to download 129. 

Step 5 - Copy back downloads/replays/keys into the new Wc3 folder.


MOUSE ISSUES - some people (including me) have reported mouse issues with 129.  Remo has posted a possible workaround that seems to help. You make a shortcut to your Wc3 executable and add -opengl to the shortcut path.

2nd solution to mouse issues - If "-opengl" does not work, try " -graphicsapi OpenGL2"



If you want to continue to keep running w3a in a separate 126a folder, let me know and I can walk you through those steps. I have both running currently with no issues.
