Heya!

I was thinking, maybe your computer resolution doesnt fit with WC3's?
This works for me on WoW, League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth too, no idea if it does for you!

Im running Windows XP. Maybe this have an other shortcut or interface for Vista or Windows 7.

Here we go!

Click on the "Start" button.

Click on "Run".
Write there:

regedit

This will open a UI.

Go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
Click and open the "Software" folder.
Down there, at "B" part, somewhere you will see:
Blizzard Entertainment.
Here you'll see a folder called "Warcraft III". Open it, and you will see other parts of this folder.
Here, go to Video.
Almost at the bottom, you will see "reswidth" and "reshight".
My computer is 1280(Width) and 800(Hight).
Click to open one of those. 2 Options. Wanna be a man, go Hexa. Wanna be nothing, click on that one below. Type in your numbers in both of those, and start Warcraft III.
Better Graphics!

This really has nothing to do with modding/mapping/barely even WC3, it's more of a general tech help tutorial.

Why have an accurate description when you can have a less accurate one for minimal effort? :thup:

The image of the 'start' button is unnecessary. I'm sure everybody knows what it is without an image. On the other hand, an image of the final location within the registry editor would be helpful.

Also, a question to everyone who's tried this: Does this actually make any difference? I'd imagine it has the same effect as stretching a low resolution image, which is pretty much what WC3 does anyway. :rolleyes:

:confused:

Well, this tutorial is kind of useful, but it really needs to be written better.

If crazy_dead doesn't mind, I'll rewrite it.

Or if he wants to, that's obviously fine.

It fits here better than any other forum.

Leave him be. There are only some minor corrections that need to be made. I'm sure he's perfectly capable of amending them himself.

Cool. I've been wondering how to change that since I can't change it in-game, it didn't work :p

I actually use a program that does this for me, so yes I use this method (in a round about way), and the graphics are better in my opinion. Not to mention I love playing WC3 in widescreen. :p

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air

    I bitch about Xenforo sometimes but it really is full featured you just have to really know what you are doing to get the most out of it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is just not easy to fix styles and customize but it definitely can be done
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do know this - xenforo dropped the ball by not keeping the vbulletin reputation comments as a feature. The loss of the Reputation comments data when we switched to Xenforo really was the death knell for the site when it came to all the users that left. I know I missed it so much and I got way less interested in the site when that feature was gone and I run the site.
