    Patch 1.28 is here and for the first time in 12? years I was on the game list again. I'm not sure what the future holds for Makemehost and ENTgaming or hosting in general. We will see how those services respond and what Blizzard does in the future. With Starcraft Remastered announced a Warcraft 3 Remastered is likely as well and some of this could be setting the stage for that. Hopefully Blizzard can implement both cross realm games and some way of viewing the game list outside the client (mirroring MMH's functionality basically).

    The Blizzard Post:
    "Howdy,
    We'll be releasing version 1.28 of Warcraft III tomorrow at 2pm PDT. Expected downtime is two hours. Patch notes:
    Specific Changes & Improvements

    • Improved installation and patching performance

    I don't even care what the patches are at this point, I just like downloading new WC3 patches.

    The closing of that thread was a tragic loss for popcorn vendors everywhere (and before I could get off work too).

    I'm looking forward to whatever they have planned, hopefully it wont be too bumpy of a ride.

    Turn off fixed aspect ratio when you're done.

    Yeah I did. Bit confused why they made that the standard.

    A lot of bots don't work at the moment, they probably still have to patch them.

    The new patch broke NewGen JASS, Vexorian's Optimizer and a couple of other tools I use for editing, which effectively cripples my work on LTA's latest version. Bummer.

    I'll have to wait until new versions of NewGen and Optimizer come out because I'm currently unable to work.

    I know that Hannibal got his stuff back up and running, I'd contact him to see how.

    The file would load but not save due to limits. I'm waiting for a response on the hive. Fortunately I didn't update my laptop so I can edit on there but QQ.

    If he knows how to get things working again, he should probably tell everyone.

    EDIT: How did you get it to load?

    Well I downloaded WEX but it still says that the map exceeds the limits when I go to save. Currently waiting on a response to see if I need to do something to enable no limits on WEX.

    Edit: vex's optimizer is down as krotos mentioned but if I can get the WEX issue resolved and its not a dead end I'll happily post what to do! We might have to wait for Vex to release but at least we can keep mapping.

    I reinstalled WC3 and went back to 1.27b, so far it appears my map works fine in 1.28, but much more testing needs to be done.

    Anyway, what that means is I will edit my map in 1.27b and play it online on 1.28. I just wish I had a second computer to edit the map.

    Looks like I should just push out a quick Greece version then before updating WC3.

    How do you use different patches on the same PC, are you just reinstalling and patching 1.27b when you edit?

    Vexorian's Optimizer is broke too. :(

    This update is terrible. However, can anyone tell me how to restore the right size of the letters? They are tiny now, lul.
