Download Dota ListChecker

ListChecker - This post is a handy introduction guide on how to install listchecker, but there have been many advanced queries and topic which are covered in Krkljator.CF’s comprehensive and thorough FAQ for Listchecker. Go there if you have any advanced questions on how to install and use Listchecker. Continue reading if you want the basics on how to install/use listchecker. All comments for this post will now be disabled.
Latest BNET Patch 1.22 Requires New Listchecker File (June 30th, 2008)!


With the new BNET Patch, you will no longer be able to host with LC unless you download the new listchecker file. You can Download the latest listchecker file here. Replace this file with your old pickup.listchecker.exe file.

Listchecker (a.k.a. pickup.listchecker) is a third party application that will allow you to host games on with a significant improvement in latency. Since I haven’t seen any good tutorials on how to install / setup / use Listchecker, I decided to write one to make things easier on anyone who wants to use the program. When I host with Listchecker, pings to other players usually range from 10ms to around 30ms. For the most part, the people who join my games are pleased with their pings and always compliment me on the smooth hosting and lack of delay. This tutorial will show you how to install Listchecker for either Windows XP or Vista, and how to use the basic commands. Note: You must be able to host games on normally, or else Listchecker will not work!

If you’re looking for an alternative to Listchecker or can’t get Listchecker to work, try DotA Client!

If you are having any problems installing LC, PLEASE do a search within the comments section as the same questions have been answered multiple times!

Part 1: Download the Files

First, download the ListChecker zip file.

Create a new folder, and extract the files into there. I chose to create a new folder called listchecker and placed it in the Warcraft III directory. At this point, you may want to create a shortcut to this folder on your desktop for easy access.
Part 2: Install WinPcap

If you already have WC3Banlist installed, then you most likely already have WinPcap installed. If so, you can skip Part 2, and move on to Part 3. Otherwise, download and install WinPcap.
Part 3: Configuring the pickup.listchecker.ini file

This is the most difficult part of this tutorial and needs to be completed correctly or else the program will not work. First, open the pickup.listchecker.ini file by double clicking it. You should see the following:

The following is a brief description of each field.

* bnetnetwork: this is the name of the network that you play on, i.e.,,, or
* bnetkey1: insert your Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos CD key here
* bnetkey2: insert your Warcraft III: Frozen Throne CD key here

If you do not have your CD key information readily available, learn how to extract your Warcraft CD keys.

* bnetacc: insert your username here
* bnetpass: insert your password here (if your password contains any special characters like Ø, ListChecker may not work properly. You may have to change your password to get ListChecker to work)
* war3dir: insert the directory path of Warcraft III here
* hostport: the default value is 6112. this value should not be changed unless you use a different port to host your games.

Once you have entered in all the information, save the file.
Part 4: Initializing Listchecker

Double click on the pickup.listchecker.exe file. You should see the following prompt:

Click yes.

Listchecker then goes on to encrypt the CD keys and the password in the ini file. Just press OK on all three dialog boxes.

If everything was done correctly, you should see the following screen:

Now we are ready to host a game on
Part 5a: Disable all other network cards that are not in use

This step seems to help many people in setting up Listchecker (Special thanks to John Holmes for pointing this out). You can disable your unused network cards by going to “Start” => “Control Panel” => “Network Connections”. Right click on the network cards that are inactive, and disable them. Since there is no way to configure which network card Listchecker decides to use, the next best thing to do is to disable all the network cards that are not in use.
Part 5b: For Windows Vista Users

If you use Windows Vista, you must perform these extra steps to run listchecker:

1. Right click at pickup.listchecker.exe and choose Properties
2. Click the Compatibility tab.
3. Under Privilege Level, check Run this program as an administrator.
4. Click Ok

Vista Priviledges
Part 6: Using ListChecker to host public games

Launch pickup.listchecker.exe.
Launch Warcraft III, and go to Local Area Network.

Create a game with the desired map. You will notice that pkp.listchecker will have joined your game immediately, as shown in the image below.

To host a public game on, use the following command:

/hostbnetpublic gameName

So for example, if we want to host a public game called dota 6.48b –ap USA LC HOST! we would type in /hostbnetpublic dota 6.48b –ap USA LC HOST!, as shown in the figure below.

Similarly, if you wanted to host a private game, you would omit the public, and it would just be:

/hostbnet dota 6.48b –ap USA LC HOST!

Listchecker will confirm that the game has been created.

If the game was not created successfully, then the information in the pickup.listchecker.ini file is incorrect or the game name you chose has already been used. Go back and check the pickup.listchecker.ini file and make sure all the information is correct, or try another game name.

Two other useful commands are:

* /refreshbnet – this refreshes the game within
* /pingclients – this copies the ping information for all current players onto the clipboard. Press control-V to paste the information onto the chat line.

em> file is incorrect or the game name you chose has already been used. Go back and check the pickup.listchecker.ini file and make sure all the information is correct, or try another game name.

Two other useful commands are:

* /refreshbnet – this refreshes the game within
* /pingclients – this copies the ping information for all current players onto the clipboard. Press control-V to paste the information onto the chat line.

Extra: Listchecker and Hamachi

Listchecker works with Hamachi as well. If you are on a Hamachi network and host a public game on using the /hostbnetpublic command, anyone on the Hamachi network can join your game. Thus, if you have other friends who don’t have a cd key, you can host a game using Listchecker and then have your friends (who don’t have CD keys) join via Hamachi!

To be more specific

1. Join desired Hamachi Network.
2. Open up pickuplistchecker.exe.
3. Open up Warcraft III.
4. Go to LAN and host a game. Use the /hostbnetpublic command.
5. Players on your Hamachi network can join the game. In addition, players on BNET will be able to join your game as well!

Other Issues, Tips, and Troubleshooting


If you are having any problems installing LC, PLEASE do a search within the comments section as the same questions have been answered multiple times!

If you are using a wireless connection (which I do not recommend) then you may have to disable all the other Network Interface Cards (NIC) through the device manager since there is no way to configure which NIC Listchecker uses (or no way that I know of).

Thanks to John Holmes for this tip!

There have been many reported problems with cracked versions and foreign versions of Warcraft III not working with Listchecker. Unfortunately, there seems to be no solution at this time. Any new information on this issue will be posted here in the future.

Windows Vista and wireless adaptors also seem to cause trouble, resulting in Winpcap from functioning properly. Any new information on this issue will be posted here in the future.

/refreshbnet is actually not required but recommended. The game actually refreshes itself every 10-15 seconds automatically. So just sit there and it will autorefresh . . . which sometimes makes the other players antsy because they are used to seeing the host close and open slots to “refresh” the game. Just inform the other players that LC automatically refreshes, although this causes some people to leave the game in disbelief.

If you attempt to use the “custom kick” hack, it will drop all players.

Download DotaHIT v0.999s3 (+ Replay Parser & Replay Finder)

DotaHIT v0.999s3 (+ Replay Parser & Replay Finder) - Hi. It's time for the 0.999s3 version release. "I'm working on a program, which would calculate various data about your hero. For example, I want my program to be able to show the actual increase in dps of your hero, if he had learned some skill that gives him bonus damage, show total spell resistance, EHP and everything else that is possible to calculate and useful to know about your hero. I do that only because i dislike (nothing personal ) other dota-oriented programs that i have seen."


Extra features:

* CustomKeys generation. You can now generate your CustomKeys.txt using the DotaHIT's user interface
* Image Extraction. With this you can extract images (hero/skill/item) from the DotA map.
* Data dump. This is useful when you want to view DotA map's database (heroes, items and abilities).
* Replay Parser. Opens replay files (*.w3g) and displays some information about the game: host, players, heroes, line-ups, chat-log, kill-log, skill/item order, wards and, if possible, kills/deaths/creeps/denies list.
* Replay Parser/Replay Finder. A tool built in replay parser that allows searching for replays that contain specific players, heroes or both.

What's new?

* Fixed Item Combining Mode bug in 6.64 that was also causing replays not to parse when map cache is enabled.
* Replay Parser: Optimized map cache storage size (x3 smaller) and load time (x2 faster). Old cache files will be automatically overwritten by new cache files.
* Replay Parser: Fixed some bugs.
* You can now use items in the inventory by left-clicking on them (for example to change Power Treads attribute bonus). Item cooldown (if there is) is not supported though.

-------[ 0.999s2]-----------
* Replay Parser: Implemented map cache system (Options->Cache maps). This should greatly reduce the replay parse time. Enabled by default.
* Replay Parser: If the map path provided in the replay does not exist, the default folder is used (Maps\Download) if the map exists there.
* Replay Parser: Fixed error that prevented replays to be parsed when no map is loaded (replay map not found).
* Replay Parser: Apm now starts counting after hero pick (the result was lower in -cm).
* Replay Parser: Fixed a bug in BBCode Settings form that caused a critical error in some cases.
* Replay Parser: BBCode Settings form now properly saves the last entered value.
* Replay Parser now remembers maximized/minimized window state.
* Fixed some conditions under which Replay Parser export should display picks.
* Fixed some bugs in Replay Parser that caused parse errors.
* Detail-mode tooltip: skill tooltip now always shows ability ID (instead of research mode only)
* Detail-mode tooltip: added "allowed targets" info for abilities
* Fixed Auto-Updater from running each time you run the tool instead of as specified in settings.

1. You need to have Warcraft III installed on your pc. This is because my program uses it's datafiles. War3 installation path is determined through registry, so you don't have to specify it manually. If War3 is not installed, then my program wouldn't be able to load maps correctly.

2. Since my program is written in C#, you need to have .NET Framework 2.0 installed on your computer (see link below).

Additional file:
.Net Framework 2.0 download page (dotnetfx.exe - 22,4 mb)
Tell me if my program does not run after installing this version of framework. Btw, some programs install FW2.0 automatically in order for them to work, so you might already have it installed on your pc.


dotahit - Project Hosting on Google Code
This the old location of DotaHIT source files, when I developed it with another programmer. That didnt work out, so I moved to SourceForge now.
Still there might be some experimental versions on dotaht.googlecode and you can post your suggestions, report bugs, etc. in the "Issues" tab of the project page.
Note: if you want to download the source code from the project page, switch to "Source" tab and use the url you see (".../svn/trunk/") with some "SVN tool" (search for this in google) which will automatically download every source file found.

Download DotaHIT Replay Parser
This is a sample project of a plugin for DotaHIT Replay Parser.
It does almost the same things as the default replay export (hero bbcode and name), but now you can easily modify the source code so that it will display information as you want it without studying the full source code of DotaHIT.

DotaHIT plugins have almost full access to DotaHIT's core variables so you can extract any data you want from the replay (lanes, chatlog, killog, apm, creepstats, etc.).

Okay the reason i created this section is because currently DotaHIT development progress is slow. As you can notice, I've tried to fix that by cooperating with another programmer but it didnt work out. Personally I dont have enough motivation to spend most of my free time on DotaHIT - I always have more interesting things in mind , besides, DotaHIT already does more than enough for my needs. So, I've decided to suggest another way of speeding up DotaHIT development - paid implementation of features. That is, you pay me money and I implement the feature you would like to have in DotaHIT. It's not that I'm making DotaHIT a paid tool or smth, its just that money could be the only thing that can keep my motivation to spend free time on DotaHIT development. Here are the general rules to this:

* 1. You can suggest any feature you want. Even the most boring ones that I would never consider otherwise . As long as it doesnt screw up DotaHIT intereface, does not conflict with its other features, and is in the "spirit" of DotaHIT , its fine.
* 2. The average price for a feature will be smth like 30$. If the feature is too small and easy to code then try to suggest more features so that overall they will be worth the 30$ price. Its just that I'm lazy to code small feature for 5$, but coding six small features for 30$ total is fine. If the feature is very useful and needed for DotaHIT (only i will decide that ofc ) then i will do it for free (because I should probably have enough motivation w/o money).
* 3. Paid features can be discussed via my ICQ:194582102 (or via PM on this forum if you have troubles with that). Btw my timezone is GMT+2 and I'm usually online from 12:00 AM - 11:00 PM. I will tell you how much time will it take me to implement this feature and how much will it cost (~30$ imo for one big feature or a pack of small features). Then after all is settled, you pay me first, then i do the work (i dont know if i can trust ya ).
* 4. All the features I do for money will be available for everyone in the next DotaHIT release, meaning I will not do any "private" versions of DotaHIT. If needed I can quickly release next version so that "customer" will get a hold of his ordered feature asap
* 5. I can only use WebMoney service for online payment in my country, so make sure you have an account there.
* 6. It is possible to pay half of the price (or w/e you can) and then waiting for someone else to pay the rest. I will then make a TO-DO list of features waiting to be fully payed, so other people will decide if they want to support specific feature development. When the feature will be fully payed I'll start working. Though you risk at ending up w/o money (don't forget about commission fee for transfering money back in online payment services) and feature if noone else would support it enough.

General Questions

How to Record Dota Using Fraps

What do the options do?

Selecting "Start Fraps minimized" will hide the Fraps dialog screen when you launch the program. Fraps can still be accessed through the icon in the system tray.

Selecting "Fraps window always on top" will ensure the program window remains visible even when switching to another application. This option has no effect if Fraps has been minimized to the system tray.

If you'd like Fraps to be loaded when you turn on your machine enable the "Run Fraps when Windows starts" option.

Fraps also supports separate LCD screens on keyboards such as the Logitech® G15™. If you have a supported keyboard you will see the option to "Display status on keyboard LCD". Enabling this option will allow you to see FPS graphs and other identifiers on the keyboard while playing your games. If you have a G15 but do not see this option then you may need to install the latest G15 drivers available from Logitech's website.

Does Fraps have a performance impact on the game?

There is a small overhead associated with drawing the framerate on screen. This may vary depending on your system configuration, but should remain relatively minimal. The best way to measure it on your own system is to find a game that allows you to benchmark it and compare the results obtained with and without Fraps loaded.

When you are benchmarking the overlay is automatically disabled to provide the most accurate results.

If you are recording a movie with Fraps there can be a noticable impact on the game. This is due to all the extra work involved in saving the screen data to disk.

FPS (Frames Per Second)

How to Record Dota Using Fraps

What do the options do?

The Overlay Display Hotkey lets you assign a button that will toggle the frame rate counter between the four corners and off. To change the Hotkey, click in the box and type a new key to be assigned this function. Clicking Disable will stop the Hotkey from having any effect.

The Benchmarking Hotkey lets you assign a button that can be used to determine the average frame rate between any two points in a game. To change the Hotkey, click in the box and type a new key to be assigned this function. Clicking Disable will stop the Hotkey from having any effect.

The overlay corner indicates the region of the screen that the framerate counter will be displayed in. Choose a corner that doesn't obstruct important information in the game's display. If you select Disabled the frame rate counter will not be displayed on screen.

Selecting "Only update overlay once a second" will only change the frame rate counter once a second.

Selecting "Save frame rate to file each second" will output the frame rate once a second to the file FRAPSSEC.TXT in your Fraps directory. This option is deprecated and has been removed in Fraps 2.7.0. Use the detailed FPS statistics option to get individual CSV files for each benchmark run.

The "Stop benchmark automatically" option allows you to specify a fixed duration for the benchmark. Once the number of seconds has elapsed the benchmark will automatically stop and the results will be written to disk.

Finally, detailed benchmark statistics can also be saved to disk. These are written in standard CSV files that can be imported directly into a spreadsheet. All files are automatically named/timestamped and saved in the benchmarks subdirectory. Currently there are 3 files written for each benchmark when this option is enabled:

* FPS - Contains the frame rate value for each second of the benchmark
* frametimes - Contains the time (in milliseconds) of every frame that was rendered in the benchmark
* minmaxavg - Contains the total frame count, benchmark duration, minimum, maximum, and average frame rate values.

How can I average the framerate between two points?

While in the game press the key you assigned to the Benchmarking Hotkey. This will mark the start of where averaging is to take place. A green box is displayed to let you know that logging has begun, and then the counter is removed for maximum accuracy. When you want to end the benchmark, press the Hotkey again. The average framerate will now be displayed in a red box. Full details are also saved in the file FRAPSLOG.TXT in your Fraps folder, and into the benchmark directory if you have detailed statistics enabled.

What is the maximum framerate Fraps will show?

Fraps will show a maximum framerate of 9999 fps on screen. If you need to know precise framerates above this you must use benchmarking and find out the value from FRAPSLOG.TXT, or from the detailed statistics (if you have this option enabled).

Why doesn’t Fraps show above 30fps, 60fps, 75 fps (or any other framerate) in my game?

This can be due to several reasons.

Many games have internal limits that prevent them rendering faster than a certain framerate. In some cases this can mean they are locked at a maximum framerate of only 30fps.

Another possibility is that you have Vsync enabled. Vsync is used to synchronise the output of your graphics card with the display of your monitor. When your graphics card has finished rendering the next frame it waits for the monitor to finish displaying the current one before switching to the new one. This means that the maximum framerate you can obtain will be equal to the refresh rate of your monitor (which is usually 60hz, 75hz, 85hz, or 100hz).

If you disable Vsync then your graphics card will continuously render without waiting for the last frame to be displayed in its entirety. With fast graphics cards this means that your monitor may switch to a new frame halfway down the screen. This effect is known as tearing as there appears to be a visible line separating two different halves. Due to this, you should generally leave Vsync enabled except when benchmarking.

Screen Capture Questions

How to Record Dota Using Fraps

What do the options do?

You can select the folder where Fraps will store all screenshots in. By default this folder is the same as the directory you installed Fraps into, but you can customise it to save anywhere on your disk. Click the Change button to select a new folder, or the View button to show the current contents of the folder.

The Screen Capture Hotkey lets you assign a button that will take a screenshot of the game screen. To change the Hotkey, click in the box and type a new key to be assigned this function. Clicking Disable will stop the Hotkey from having any effect.

Screenshots can be saved in Windows Bitmap (BMP), JPEG (JPG), Portable Network Graphics (PNG), or Targa (TGA) format.

Selecting "Include frame rate overlay on screenshots" will include the Fraps frame rate counter on your screenshots. If the frame rate overlay is disabled, no counter will be saved on your screenshots.

What is the maximum resolution supported by the screen capture?

Screenshots can be taken in games running at resolutions up to 2560x1600.

Video Capture Questions

How to Record Dota Using Fraps

What do the options do?

You can select the folder where Fraps will store all movies in. By default this folder is the same as the directory you installed Fraps into, but you can customise it to save anywhere on your disk. Click the Change button to select a new folder, or the View button to show the current contents of the folder.

The Video Capture Hotkey lets you assign a button that will record movies of the game. To change the Hotkey, click in the box and type a new key to be assigned this function. Clicking Disable will stop the Hotkey from having any effect.

Choosing Half-size will store the movie at half the resolution of the game screen. Full-size will store the movie at the same resolution as the game screen.

You can choose the frame rate of the output movie from 25fps, 30fps, 50fps, 60fps, or a custom value up to 100fps. Higher values result in smoother playback but will increase the file size. Some video editing programs will treat movies recorded at 25fps as PAL, and those captured at 29.97/30fps as NTSC.

Selecting "Record Sound" will save the game audio along with the video. You can disable this option if you are planning to add your own sound to the video.

When you select "Detect best sound input" Fraps will determine the best input to record the game sound on. If you choose "Use Windows input" the default Windows recording input will be used. The Windows input may not capture all of the game sounds, so you should generally let Fraps detect the input unless you want to capture sound from an external source.

How do I record a movie while running a game?

First select the target framerate for the movie, which indicates how many frames will be included in the movie each second. You can currently choose from 25, 30, 50 or 60 fps.

In the game press the Video Capture Hotkey (F9) when you want to start recording. While recording the frame rate counter will turn red. When you want to end your movie, press the button again to stop recording. You will now find the movie saved in your default folder.

What is the maximum resolution supported by Half/Full-size video capture?

The maximum resolution for full-size and half-size capture is currently 2560x1600.

Why is the AVI movie generated by Fraps so big? How can I reduce the size?

The filesize is big because there isn’t enough time to encode the movie while the game is running. The movie frames are slightly compressed, but still require a large amount of disk space due to the high resolutions. Once you have finished capturing you should convert the saved AVI into one of the popular compressed movie formats such as mpeg or divx. Recommended programs for doing this are tmpgenc (Tsunami Mpeg Encoder), and VirtualDub.

Using VirtualDub is quite easy. To create a compressed version of the AVI follow these steps:

  • Start VirtualDub
  • Select File->Open and choose the AVI in the Fraps directory you wish to compress.
  • Select Video->Compression and choose the codec you wish to compress with (usually divx)
  • Select File->Save As AVI and specify a filename for the new AVI.

If you have Windows XP you can also use Windows Movie Maker to compress the video files. If you use Windows Movie Maker it's recommended that you keep your Fraps video files at 800x600 or under.

Why do I get a source format error when I try to compress with DIVX?

Divx6 places restrictions on the video resolution for many of its profiles and this may cause an error when handling large Fraps videos. In Virtualdub you can go to the Divx codec configuration screen and set it to use the "Unconstrained Profile". This will allow you to encode movies of any resolution and won't generate the source format error.

How do I stop the frame rate counter being saved on my movies?

The frame rate counter shouldn't be saved on your movies. What you may be seeing is Fraps showing the frame rate of your media player. Try exiting Fraps before playing your videos and you should see clean images. If this doesn't help you can disable the frame rate counter before recording by pressing the Overlay Display hotkey.

When I view the movie I saved the video skips and the sound crackles. What's wrong?

Your media player may be having trouble keeping up with the large amount of data Fraps has written to disk. Fraps is optimised for processing large amounts of data, but many players are not. If they can't read the data fast enough skips in the video and audio may be present.

Keep in mind the raw data saved to disk should be fine. If you encode the video into a compressed format you will likely end up with a video file that plays perfectly due to the greatly reduced file size.

You can also lower the movie frame rate or use a lower resolution to reduce the data saved to the hard disk.

How can I adjust the volume of the sound that is recorded?

You must configure the volume through the "Sounds and Audio Devices" item in the Control Panel. Use the following steps:

  • Click on the Control Panel and select Sounds And Audio.
  • Click on the Audio tab.
  • Find the Sound Recording device and click Volume.
  • Adjust the volume for the Input that Fraps is recording from. This is usually named "What U Hear", "Record Master", or "Stereo Mixer".

If you can't see the correct Input on screen you may need to enable it by clicking on Properties in the menu and ensuring all Inputs have a check beside their name.

Where can I find the custom Fraps FPS1 codec?

The Fraps codec (FPS1) is put on the system when you install Fraps. If you've reinstalled Windows you will also need to reinstall Fraps in order to play back your movies.

Please keep in mind that if you want to give your raw footage to another person they will also need to have Fraps installed.

How to install Dota Theme Manager

Dota Theme Manager Installation Guide

Since many people have problems installing the Dota Theme Manager, I advise you to follow the installation guide. Here are the steps on how to install dota theme.

1. Download the newest and the latest version of the Dota Theme Manager
2. Unpack the file in your warcraft folder - in most cases C:\Program Files\Warcraft III.
3. DO NOT move or rename any of the files you unpacked. The path must be: "\Warcraft III\DTMV4\"4. If you want it on your desktop, create a shortcut of the exe file.
5. Make sure both your WC3 and your World Editor are closed!
6. Go!

The Dota Theme Manager uses the following paths for the files:

Warcraft III Folder\DTMV4
-this is the folder you should see when you open your WC3 folder.

Note: Within this folder, you should have the following folders as shown below:

Warcraft III Folder\DTMV4\DTMV4.exe
-the application itself. Use this executable to start the Dota Theme Manager.

Warcraft III Folder\DTMV4\Data
-the Data-Folder, containing all necessary data the DTM needs to work.
Note: Don't change anything here!

How to install Dota

Here are the step-by-step procedures on how to install dota. If you are looking to learn the game, visit On this install guide, we will cover the following:

  • Installing Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos
  • Installing Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne Expansion
  • Updating the Patch
  • Downloading the Latest Map for DotA
  • Playing Online
  • Playing Against Computer


Installing Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos

First, place the CD in your CD drive. Open My Computer (if you're using Windows), click on the icon of the CD, and install it.

Step 1
* Click "Install Warcraft III" when the Warcraft III Setup opens.

Follow the instructions given afterwards. Accept the Terms of Agreement, after reading it definitely, and proceed to the next page.

Step 2
* Enter your name and unique CD Key. I'll be entering an example name and my own CD Key as an example, but I covered it for privacy. I didn't cover the "example" name, of course. Click OK.

The CD Key can be only be legally found at the box of your Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos.

Step 3
* Enter the installation directory. It's best to leave it as it is. Click OK.

Step 4
* Installation will now begin. It will take several seconds, so wait a while. After a few minutes, it should be done.

Step 5
* After successfully installing, it will prompt you to place a desktop shortcut. Not necessary, because you'll be playing Frozen Throne, not this.


Installing Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne

You just installed Reign of Chaos. Take its CD out, place the TFT CD, and let's install The Frozen Throne.

Step 1
* Click "Install Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne" when the Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne Setup opens.

Again, accept the terms of Agreement, after reading it. This will lead you to the CD Key page.

Step 2
* Enter your CD Key. Click OK.

The CD Key can be only be legally found at the box of your Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.

Step 3
* Wait for the installation to finish successfully. Grab a Pepsi now, and drink up.

Step 4
* Now this time, you'd want to create a desktop shortcut. Click Yes.


Updating The Patch

Let's now update our patch to the latest one.

Updating the patch is very necessary. To get the latest patch, go to Frozen Throne Patch Download

You need to the download the full patch because you're starting from the very beginning. The patch version can be seen at the bottom-right corner of the opening menu when you start the game.

Once you have downloaded your patch, it's time to install it.

Step 1
* Open the patch you downloaded. It will do it's job after. When it's done, click OK. Uncheck the box if you want.

Note: When the patch starts installing, the screen will turn black. Then it will install by itself. After it's done, the screen will go back to normal.

The good thing about patch 1.22a, is that you don't need a CD to play the game (it has actually been this way since 1.21b).

Congratulations! You now have the latest patch for DotA. It is 1.22a as of now. Refer to the changelog made by this update for more info.


Downloading the Latest Dota Map

To get the latest Dota map, go to Dota latest release and stable map

Step 1
* Go here and download the latest map.

Step 2
* If you're using Mozilla FireFox, choose to Save the File. You can't open it.

Step 3
* Transfer the file to your Warcraft directory. Default directory is: C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\Maps\Download

The default directory is very important. Any tampering with it will have effects on Garena and downloading from Warcraft, especially when playing with others.

Congratulations! You now have the latest map for DotA. It is 6.57b as of now.

Playing DotA

You can now play DotA.

But you have to adjust a few things as well. That's where Options comes into the picture. Click Options on the Main Menu (4th button from the top).

Step 1
* Adjust your VIDEO Settings.

GAMMA: Brightens or darkens up a screen.
RESOLUTION: I find the 1024x768x16 Resolution fitting for my monitor. If you have a bigger monitor, select a bigger resolution. A bigger resolution means a more detailed screen.
MODEL DETAIL: Defines how detailed model units can be.
ANIMATION QUALITY: Enhances animation, i.e. attacks and some effects.
TEXTURE QUALITY: Improves the overall texture, from the menus, the terrain and the models. Medium allows you to read the loadscreen.
PARTICLES: Enhances detail of other objects and doodads.
LIGHTS: Sets how light affects everything.
UNIT SHADOWS: This must be on to ensure good gameplay.
OCCLUSION: Determines how an object can be hidden by other objects. Best set to On. This also allows -weather effects.
SPELL DETAIL: This must be set to High at all times, for me. If it is set to Low, you will find it hard to notice when spells are around.

Step 2
* Set your GAMEPLAY Settings.

The only things needed to tamper with here are:

MOUSE SCROLL: How sensitive do you want your cursor to be?
KEYBOARD SCROLL: Same here, but with the keyboard.
ALWAYS SHOW HEALTH BARS: As of 1.22a, health bars can now be permanent.
AUTOMATICALLY SAVE REPLAYS: This feature automatically saves replays inside your replays folder.

Step 3
* Configure your SOUND Settings. Do what you want here.

Step 4
* Now just go online and join a dota game!

The gold that the leaver is carrying is also frozen until the hero is either unlocked or swapped.

Scroll of Town Portal
- Reworked mechanics

- The casting time system for scroll teleports are now dynamic.
Whenever a hero teleports to an area, it causes any other teleports to that area to be delayed with extra time based on the number of heroes that teleported or are teleporting there. Each teleport leaves has memory lasts about 20 seconds for that location.

This does not affect teleports to the fountain area (it accounts for rough areas around shop area as well).

Example: First hero teleports to his tower, he takes the usual 3 seconds casting time. Then lets say the 3 other heroes teleport right after. The second one that telports after the original has a 5 second teleport time. Then 6 seconds, 7, etc.

- Teleport location effect no longer lies to the enemies about the landing spot

- Enemies now see the colors of the teleporting heroes

- Increases max range on where you can choose teleport near a building from 350 to 525
