Simple QoL optimization guide for WC3 1.29 and onward

Recommended Posts

1. Copy over your Main WC3 map folder into your Doc's WC3, then be sure to delete your Main WC3 map folder.

What it does: prevents your computer from confusing the map load paths which will force you into downloading copies of maps you already have stored.
Indepth explanation: New WC3 uses virtual file system where it'll pull the folders from Documents path. If you have 2 map paths, system will ignore both folder and would assume to download copy of the map even if you have the map in the folder path.


2. Create a shortcut of your WC3, under its properties append "-nativefullscr" onto the target path, in WC3 under Video, select a 4:3 screen ratio.
4:3 ratios: 640×480, 800×600, 960×720, 1024×768, 1280×960, 1400×1050, 1440×1080 , 1600×1200, 1856×1392, 1920×1440, and 2048×1536.

What it does: positions your WC3 UI so there is no gaps on left and right side of the screen
Indepth explanation: The new UI for 16:9 ratio forcefully alters game style as one would not be able to easily pan the screen during the game as there is introduced dead space on the side as well now having to accurately position mouse over minimap in order to pan to a particular area of the overworld.
