Hello, Welcome to Eurobattle.net Wiki - European Warcraft III PvPGN Server.
-Warcraft III 1.28.5 (install in path that has only ASCII characters, not unicode! Especially for Turks and Br, you will have problems. No accents!)
-Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 x86 (Required by our Client)
-Windows XP SP3 or greater
-Eurobattle.net Client : Installer v9
Installing the game
Option 1 (Recommended)
Download a complete Warcraft III version 1.28.5 from our site or the mirrors
Extract the zip to the directory you want your game to be in. Note that it should not contain any non-english symbols!
Option 2 (Not recommended)
Download and run Warcraft III Installer. It will automatically download all files and install the game for you. It always installs the latest version, currently that is 1.29.
Since Eurobattle doesn't support 1.29 version yet, you will have to downgrade your game back to 1.28.5 if you choose this option
If you do not own CD-keys, you can use these in order to be able to launch the game after install (these keys are banned online but they are good enough to start the game):
Downgrade from 1.29 to 1.28.5
1. Backup your license keys (if you possess them) : copy roc.w3k and tft.w3k files into a separate folder
2. Download and extract 1.28.5 zip archive into your Warcraft III directory (make sure to backup your .w3k files before extracting!)
3. Download and install Eurobattle.net Client
4. In case you are receiving the "ijl15.dll Missing" error, you can download it here and place into your Warcraft III directory
Installing Eurobattle.net for new users or clean install
1. Install Visual C++ Redistributable 2015 x86 unless you already possess it
2. Download and run Eurobattle.net Installer v9
After install, add Eurobattle.net/gproxy.exe and Warcraft III/w3l.exe to the whitelist in your antivirus (especially Avast is notorious for removing the files silently).
For existing users
If you have eurobattle client already installed it should automatically update itself and the game on startup.
Upgrade from older versions to 1.28.5
Client should detect an autoupdate and first update itself. Upon restart it will detect an outdated W3 version and try to update the game on it's own after you agree with the dialog. Simply wait a minute or so for the client to update your game to 1.28.5. Game autoupdate should work if you have no game mods and are using english game version.
If quick update fails, client will ask you to do a full game upgrade instead. Full game upgrade downloads all essential game files and can take some time. You can either accept and wait
or use Warcraft III Installer to update instead. You can always use the setup to update your game as long as the latest version on official battle.net is 1.28.5. After you update using Warcraft III Setup make sure to run installer v9 aswell!
If you have non-english game, you should always use setup to upgrade. If eurobattle is on older game version than official, you either need to use our full game upgrade and use english version or find correct files to downgrade your game.
Updating game to 1.28.5 if everything else fails
First of all, make sure you report all bugs to our technical support so we can fix them as soon as possible. If update fails, include the file xpam.log which is found in Eurobattle.net installation folder.
Make sure to have your license keys (.w3k files) backed up!
Finally, extract the
with essential W3 game files into your W3 directory and you should be good to go.
Compile the latest version of bncsutil and vesioncheck should work without custom hashes. If you can't do that, here are the hashes:
bnet_custom_war3version = 28 bnet_custom_exeversion = 0 5 28 1 bnet_custom_exeversionhash = 201 63 116 96 bnet_custom_passwordhashtype = pvpgn
bnet_custom_war3version = 26 bnet_custom_exeversion = 1 0 26 1 bnet_custom_exeversionhash = 39 240 218 47 bnet_custom_passwordhashtype = pvpgn
