  • Custom games might hang if the host is reachable but the port is blocked (eg. firewalled), probably due to different TCP timeout on Windows. Only know fix right now is to kill Warcraft (wait for the timeout can take a few dozen minutes so its faster to restart Warcraft).
  • web profiles will kill Warcraft. On Windows they start the Explorer, but this does not seem to work at least on my machine.(Note: This will kill Warcraft 3 on all distros except SuSE 9.0+. Not sure why this is, also if using Gnome 2.4 plus you can use the Alt + ↹ Tab to switch back to Warcraft. While in the game you can use the ↹ Tab + Esc combo to switch to the desktop.
  • If you set the antialiasing higher than "4x, 9-tap Gaussian" with nvidia-settings program, the game will suffer from font issues like random missing letters.
  • Demo tends to crash if the -opengl is not set, and may have display errors with it set.
  • You may be unable to save your game after playing for a while. Unfortunately, there is no workaround for this, and Transgaming doesn't seem to be interested in fixing the issue.


  • To improve performance and stability on certain systems, try starting using one of the following commands. However, on most system you won't need this! OpenGL rendering works better with CrossOver Games but is not supported by Cedega. When using Cedega, always DirectX, as it is much faster, and you will encounter problems when using OpenGL.
C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\Warcraft III.exe -opengl
C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\Frozen Throne.exe -opengl
  • If using Cedega 6.x or higher, use the Battle.Net to update your game. Works flawlessly. If you receive a message like "cd-rom not found" when the game is restarting, you just need to click "ok" for the game to exit and then start it using Cedega as usual.
