F.A.Q. of patch 1.29.0

Postby Unitil » Mon Apr 16, 2018 4:22 am

Welcome to the F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions) for patch 1.29.0, released earlier in the week by Blizzard. We have received a large number of questions since the new patch, and have gathered a large number of answers for some of those said questions below.

If the below answers did not help, please create a Technical Support request, so we can assist you further with your question/problem. Alternatively, you can reach us on our Discord.

Eurobattle.net F.A.Q.
Q: Is ENT Compatible with Eurobattle.net? /// I keep getting kicked after the map downloads, what is the problem?
A: Cross-patch hosting does not appear to be functional at this point in time. This is mainly due to the differences between the 1.29.0 and 1.28.5 patches. It is currently not possible to join games from Eurobattle.net without being kicked. They have noted that they will eventually be moving to the 1.29.x patches, however, they have not specified any date regarding this.

ENT Connect F.A.Q.
Q: I'm unable to see games listed under 'LAN' in my WC3 game, how can I fix this?
A: Please see our WIKI with regards to patch/game requirements, and a setup/troubleshooting guide.

Q: The square icon is green, and I can join games, however, I'm always kicked after downloading the map.
How can I fix this?
A: Due to the differences between the 1.29.0 patch and 1.27a/1.27b patches, it is currently not possible to join ENT Games via ENT Connect. There is no ETA on if/when this will be fixed.

General F.A.Q.
Q: Does GProxy work with the most recent patch?
A: GProxy++ by Varlock has been updated with support for the 1.29.x patches. Please visit our wiki for details.
ENT Connect does not work with the 1.29.x patched bots. You will be kicked upon map download.
H3rmit has noted that he will be working on an update for GProxy DLL in the next coming days, however, no ETA on when it will be released.

Q: Is ELO currently bugged? I did not receive any ELO for winning X game
A: Stat tracking is not functioning properly, and this is mainly due to the 1.29 patch. We are looking at resolving this issue on all bots, however, no ETA on when this will be resolved.

Q: I've experienced X bug in Y game, when will it be fixed?
A: There are a number of bugs that were introduced with the 1.29.0 patch. This ranges from not being able to sell items, to the scoreboard not displaying properly, to being unable to see the mini-map. We expect a large number of bugs to be fixed with the 1.29.1 patch, scheduled for release early in the week. Bugs persisting past 1.29.1 should be report to the developer for patching.

1.29.1 patch notes: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20762097153

Q: My download is stuck at ~X%, how can I fix this? /// My installation/update does not work
A: Refer to one of the following posts.
Post Patch Can't Run Fix : https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20762097041
Mac - Download stuck at ~69% : https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20757325828
Wins - Download stuck at ~65% : https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20762296111

Q: Why is the game not full screen? How do I fix this?
A: The game has full widescreen support, however, the in-game menu/loading screens have an added black bar on either side of the screen. This was intended! The in-game is full widescreen support without any stretching.

I will refer to a post made by a developer.
Pete Stilwell wrote:The interface wasn't designed to work with modern aspect ratios. To maintain functionality - and not ship a stretched version of the game we all love - the pillar box has been applied in menus.

If you play some games, you'll see widescreen support in all its glory.


Q: I'm experiencing issues where my mouse does not line up with the highlighted menu button, or the in-game button.
A: This is a known issue, and will likely need to be patched on Blizzards end.

There have been a few posts regarding this already, and all revolve around playing in windowed mode.
  1. Edit the alias properties used to launch your Warcraft III client
    1. Locate the alias used to launch your Warcraft III client
      • If the shortcut is in your start menu, right click and click "More" then "File Location"
    2. Right-click the alias, and click "Properties"
    3. Complete the following:

      Code: Select all

      1. Add the following to the end of the target " -window"
      Example:// "C:\Program Files (x86)\Warcraft III\Warcraft III.exe" -window
      ***There is a space between " and -window
      This will launch your game in windowed mode

      2. Change "Run:" dropdown menu to reflect "Maximized"
      This option is your choice, however, it will launch your game in "Maximized" mode.
      If you experience problems with this, simple change this back to "Normal window"
    4. Click "Apply" and launch your game.
      • If you opted for both changes to your alias, your game should launch in windowed mode, and will be maximized to your full screen. This is minus the window border, and the task bar.
  2. Change to windowed mode, without editing your alias
    1. Open your Warcraft III client
    2. Hit Alt+Enter on your keyboard
      • This will change your client to windowed mode
    3. If you want your window Maximized, click the middle of the three upper right buttons.
Q: Will ENT Gaming support 24 player maps? /// How come I cannot join my 24 player map?
A: At this point in time, Ghost is hardcoded in multiple areas for 12 player games. For this to change, we will need to refactor the code as necessary, to support >12 player maps.
GHost changes in patch 1.29
There is no ETA announced for if/when this will be resolved.

Q: I keep getting kicked at 99% download, how can I fix this?
A: Dependent on your situation, you could be either trying to connect via Eurobattle.net or ENT Connect. Please see the respective sections for those platforms above.

If you're still experiencing this issue, beyond the two mentioned platforms, please let us know by posting a Technical Support request on the forum.

Updates regarding this F.A.Q. topic will be noted below.

Code: Select all

GProxy++ by Varlock has been updated with support for 1.29.x patches. See our wiki for details.
