Dec 6 [War III] Map Pool Replacements Greetings Warchiefs, The most common thread in regards to the new map pool is the Warcraft III vanilla maps we selected. We would love to pass the baton over to you – For each of the following maps which map would you replace it with? While we would love to add community maps – for now we want to focus on Blizzard maps. As we move forward with future map pool changes we will add community maps. 1v1 (2)MeltingValley (2)BanditRidge (4)BrokenShard 2v2 (4)TurtleRock (6)GnollWood (6)Moonglade (6)RiverOfSouls 3v3 (6)GnollWood (6)Typhoon (6)UpperKingdom (6)RuinsOfStratholme (6)HinterlandRaid (6)RiverOfSouls (6)StranglethornVale 4v4 (8)MarketSquare (8)GoldRush FFA (4)Deathrose (6)EmeraldShores (6)StranglethornVale Cheers, Classic Games TeamMatt Morris106 Dec 6
Dec 6 [War III] 1.28.6 PTR [latest update] Hail Warchiefs, Warcraft III’s PTR is up and running – and we're already updating maps based on your feedback. Our sincere gratitude for your time and energy playing and offering feedback. We're still working through your suggestions; if you haven't seen your recommendations yet, keep an eye out for our next batch of updates! Windows https://battle.net/download/getInstallerForGame?os=win&locale=enUS&version=PTR&gameProgram=WARCRAFT_3 Mac https://battle.net/download/getInstallerForGame?os=mac&locale=enUS&version=PTR&gameProgram=WARCRAFT_3 Here's what we've got for your continued testing: (2)Terenas Stand LV Added unpathable terrain to the eastern Mercenary camp, so that both sides of the map have relatively the same amount of unpathable terrain. (2)Tirisfal Glades LV Opened a path through the middle of the map. Removed the +1 cliff level for each start location Removed the -1 cliff level for the northern Murloc creep camp next the players start location, so that both the north and south camp are similar. (2)The Two Rivers LV Tightened the choke point around the northern expansion - similar to the southern position. (2)Road to Stratholme LV Swapped the Mercenary camps with the Goblin Laboratories. (4V)1V1 Flood Plains LV Added some flair to the creep camps – attempt to bring life to the those points of interest (POI’s). (4)Bridge Too Near LV Opened the center of the map. Removed the Market place and Red creep camp; Added a Tavern in its place. Added upbuildable terrain around the bridges to help prevent blocking the bridges with structures. (8)Battle Ground LV Removed the +1 cliff level from the expansion goldmine between Purple and Blue start location. Adjusted all the expansion goldmines, so that there is more room to build Town Hall equivalent and defenses. Red start location no longer has two expansion goldmines pointing its way. The expansion between Red and Pink start locations now points towards pinks location. (8)Northshire LV Tucked the Goblin Laboratory and Mercenary camp buildings and creep off the main path. Now easier to move around without engaging them. While on the PTR - the Ladder Button, Automated Tournaments, and the web profile link from your profile page have been disabled. All PTR information - [url="https://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20758576598"][/url] Again, thank you for your patience and your passion to make Warcraft III better.

Dec 6 [War III] New Map Pool Greetings, Classic Games is excited to announce Warcraft III PTR will be live in the coming days. Focus will be on new map pools. The China Joy show match on the updated Terenes Stand between Fly and 120 was the debut of the types of improvements we can't wait to share. The new map pools will be a mixture of three things – must haves from the current pools, classic maps from older pools, and new ladder version maps. The ladder version maps (LV), are original maps that have undergone significant improvements. Below is an overview of our objectives and specific lists of changes by pool. So take some time to read up on the new LV maps in the coming days so you will be well prepared when the PTR goes live: General Improvements & Gameplay Objectives Balanced creep camp difficulty progression from early to late game Balanced creep drop tables for better item progression from early game to late game Item diversity: Varied Level 1 though 6 charged items and Level 1 through 6 permanent items Balanced all start locations: total amount and starting distance from lumber, equal amount of spacing, equal size choke points, et cetera Balanced expansion distance from start locations Decluttered points of interest to reduce visual competition during gameplay Retextured map surfaces for better visual clarity - both on screen and mini-map Minimized the size of trees and doodads that obstructed player view of points of interest Added cliff lines or deep water to edges of the map - removing hard edges (aesthetic choice for immersion) Properly placed trees and doodads on the pathing grid: full-cell Medium Grid to half-cell Medium Grid alternate Removed the rolling shoreline waves from rolling hills to remove the noise the waves created - remains for cliff shores List of 1 v 1 maps 1 v 1 Map Pool (New) List of 2 v 2 maps 2 v 2 Map Pool (New) List of 3 v 3 maps 3 v 3 Map Pool (New) List of 4 v 4 maps 4 v 4 Map Pool (New) List of FFA maps FFA Map Pool (New) Thanks, Matt Morris – Lead Designer of Classic GamesMatt Morris83 Dec 6
Feb 8, 2014 Welcome to the Classic Games General Forum! Greetings, Classic Gamers! We're extremely pleased to present you with this new, modern forum for the discussion of Blizzard's classic games! In the coming months we'll be shutting down the ancient, classic battle.net forums and migrating their traffic to this new location. We still have some work ahead of us, particularly in updating links that are scattered across our websites, so pardon the construction dust. What games are meant to be discussed in this forum? Classic games! If the game you want to discuss is Warcraft III or older, then you're in the right place. If you're wanting to discuss a current title, please use the links below instead: - World of Warcraft - Hearthstone - Diablo III - Heroes of the Storm - Starcraft II If you're looking for help with an issue that prevents you from playing a classic game, please check out the neighboring Support Forum. These forums are here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss ideas, give game play advice, role-play, and converse about any other aspects of Blizzard's games with other players. Community forums are at their best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you conduct yourself in a civilized manner when participating in these forums. The guidelines and rules listed below explain what behavior is expected of you and what behavior you can expect from other community members. Note that the following guidelines are not exhaustive, and may not address all manner of offensive behavior. As such, the forum moderators shall have full discretion to address any behavior that they feel is inappropriate. Also, suspension or banishment from the game will always result in the same in regard to forum access. Your access to these forums is a “privilege,” and not a “right.” Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to suspend your access to these forums at any time for reasons that include, but are not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines. We reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case by case basis. The action we take may be more lenient or more severe than those listed under each category. Code of Conduct: http://us.battle.net/en/community/conduct Please use the search function at the top of the page to find information on a topic before you post a question. Everyone will appreciate it. Additional Forum Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (http://us.battle.net/en/community/conduct), there are some common courtesy guidelines we ask you please follow. While these do technically fall within the Code of Conduct, they’re intended to clarify specific cases that may be confusing. General Discussion Forums are for discussion of topics directly related to each game The word general can be somewhat misleading, but any General Discussion forum is for threads about the game itself. If you wish to discuss other topics whether it’s polling for real-life statistics, or asking what someone listens to while playing, please post in our Off-Topic Forum. Please note that this includes comparisons with other games. Do not post in all capital letters, use excessive punctuation, etc. This practice is used to draw attention to a post. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask that you refrain from using sensational tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic is frowned on Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Posting IBL, IBTL, or its variants constitutes spamming We appreciate that our posters understand the Code of Conduct to the point where they can call whether or not a thread is in violation; however, saying “In before the lock” does not contribute to a constructive community and it does fall under spamming. If you wish to acknowledge a post that violates policy, please report it instead by using the biohazard symbol. Do not bump posts Bumping is posting any non-information for the purpose of raising a thread to the top of the list. Bumping a post is considered spamming and contributes nothing constructive to the discussion. Your thread will be seen; there is no need to continually bump it to the top of the list. Petition posts are frowned on This is a discussion forum. Petition threads do not contain much discussion, instead a petition is usually page after page of /signed. It isn’t constructive. If you have an issue with the game, please discuss it in a civil fashion. There are other places on the Internet to form online petitions. Do not post about locked or deleted threads Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. We lock before we post on a locked thread to stop the violation in question as soon as possible, so if you have yet to see a comment by a member of the community team on a locked thread, please wait for it and do not post on the subject. If you do have questions regarding forum moderation, please use the appropriate contact e-mail. If you have a post to report or a sticky to request, use the report option under the "Thumb's Down" button or email wowreportedpost@blizzard.com Please do not post linking to threads you feel should be moderated or stickied. By using the methods we have in place, we can moderate more efficiently. Game on!Kaltonis0 Feb 8, 2014
2d [All] Classic Chat API Alpha v1 [Edit: 05/20] Chat Channels are a defining aspect of the legacy Battle.net experience. Modernization efforts have or will limit functions the community has created over the years. That's not acceptable, so Classic Games is excited to debut our official Chat API Alpha. Mark 1 of CAPI is now available for testing on the PTR. This first iteration allows for interactive bots. With your help and support we will expand the feature set over time. Specific Changes & Improvements Ability to chat and whisper across all classic games A valid legacy account with registered email is required to register a bot - see instructions below for more details Only one bot per Op or Clan channel Known Only USWest is enabled How To CAPI specifications and registration instructions: https://d8un0y0mnd29o.cloudfront.net/public/Chat+Bot+API+Alpha+v1.pdf Test web app and stub server: https://d8un0y0mnd29o.cloudfront.net/public/Chat+Bot+Demo+Alpha+v1.zip Edit: V2 is available with Ban/UnBan/Kick https://d8un0y0mnd29o.cloudfront.net/public/Chat+Bot+API+Alpha+v2.pdf Will be some downtime as i update the server today (05/20) and will send invites as soon as it is all ready for USWest, USEast, EURMark Chandler194 2d
Nov 23 [D2] Account Closures Greetings Adventurers, As Classic Games continues to evolve our monitoring and safeguards to fight hacking in Diablo II, we are discovering how widespread the adoption of *alternative tactics and strategies* have become regarding keys, accounts, gear, and gameplay. We have also enjoyed constructive discussion with a representative body of the community. They've advocated for leniency; the argument being that the absence of punishment was a sign of condoning said behaviors. Here is where we've landed: Protect Your Adventurers Register Key(s) to a Blizzard account: https://www.battle.net/account/creation/tos.html Ensure your Diablo II install is using said registered Key Ensure your Diablo II account has an up-to-date email address Remove third party programs that may *enhance* Diablo IIReduce Risk To Your Adventurers Do not buy keys from a third party Do not buy 16 digit keys - If you currently have 16 digit keys, you should convert to 26 digit keys through Battle.net Do not re-use keys already purchased from a third party Do not use proxy networks Do not use web hosts Do not share Keys or use Keys that have been made publicly available Do not share accounts: possible reprisals for violations will envelop both party's shared accounts Do not buy accounts or leveling services: such accounts are at high risk of being closed without warningAlso, keep in mind that anyone behind your network, or if your ISP shares your IP address (as in more than one persons are given the same IP address), gets restricted from battle.net, you will suffer the penalties along with them. This is the unfortunate disadvantage of using a shared IP address. Also, keep track of siblings and other people with access to your computer and/or network who play on Battle.net, as they can get you restricted as well. Sincerely, Classic GamesMatthew Cederquist199 Nov 23
Mar 12, 2016 [D2] Installers, Stand Alone Patches, and Update Troubleshooting Installers If you already own Diablo II, 1.14b installers for Mac and PC can be found here: https://us.battle.net/account/management/download/?show=classic Stand Alone Patches If you already have an older version of the game installed and are having trouble patching, go here for the stand alone patch: https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/classic-game-patches Troubleshooting What if I am receiving errors attempting to patch or cannot complete patching? We recommend downloading and reinstalling with the new installers: https://us.battle.net/account/management/download/?show=classic What if I don't see installers on the page you linked? If you don't own the game, you will not see them there. Go here to purchase: http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/games/d2/ Is there a Mac patch? No, the changes we had to make from legacy OSX to 10.10 and 10.11 support were too great, there is no Mac patch, only the install linked above. My screen is off center when the game loads on Mac. We're working to fix this display issue, but in the meantime if you hit CMD + M twice on load, the game with center properly. My FPS seem low on PC, is there any type of workaround? Running in windowed mode will remove the FPS constraint. Right click on the game's shortcut and go to Properties. In the target line, add -w after the ". It should look similar to this: ...\Diablo II.exe" -w Gatekeeper is blocking my download. Apple has a very good way to unblock trusted sites that Gatekeeper is stopping here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202491Classic0 Mar 12, 2016

55m Closed (8) Documented Proof of Infraction Hello I have been banned on 5 accounts as follows: Sethwmson sethwmson2 venichi *I was botting/using MH as it the how the game of Diablo was played prior to this update. After these accounts received a closed (8). I have since created 2 clean accounts(not older then 24hrs) with a fresh diablo 2 download from the Bnet site. sevenichi (hardcore East) moister (Softcore East) These accounts have now been closed (8) as well. No botting, no MH, no loader nothing but original d2. Why are the secondary accounts being banned and why does it take 10-24 hours to determine a ban? I have not broken the agreement or anything with these 2 accounts. I need answers, not a blanket statement; I want solid proof I have broken any agreement. If you cannot provide detailed specific proof how are you determining a broken system vs an accurate ban?Davinci13 55m

5h Account Closed My account for my current home I'm renting is closed. I'm moving for my new job and just bought a sweet new house! So excited, not d2 related but w/e. PS: This ladder is great, reminds me of 1.10. Most people still don't have enigma and it's fun watching groups of under powered heroes try to slay stuff that used to be trivial due to cheats. KEEP UP THE WORK BLIZZ!blizzfanboy8 5h
6h D2 is a hobby... This is a shout out to all of the anti-bot snowflakes, I love reading all of the comments from anti-botters. Their fragile snowflake cries act as reminders that some peeps take gaming to an unhealthy level. Anyway, thanks for the entertainment. Hope to continue saving comments made by the snowflakes of this and of many forums. These act as reminders of what D2 play has devolved to. Blizzard must have a lot of patience to have to respond to all of their snowflake cries. Have fun and see you on the ladder, cattleprodcattleprod55 6h

Lately I get big slow downs and getting auto logged out and back in (at the sign in part) but this time now it wont let me in Im getting the make sure your connected to the internet message thing (like at the reset on the 12th) Just wanted to make sure it wasn't just on my end.

9h D2 Discord - This might help some players. **NOTE: This is not an attempt to replace any of the forums you're currently using! Just adding another, to make it slightly easier for Some. By now, we have spread all over the web, in many different forums, adding one shouldnt hurt. Trying to bring some life into d2, with a global discord, where ppl can communicate, arrange gameplays, duels, magic finding, exp running, walkthroughs/speedruns. (This is for all Realms: East,West,Eu and Asia! Everyone is welcomed!) https://discord.gg/3nvkSeW It's still the first day of the discord, so give it a little time and patience! One day, we'll have enough players to communicate with, to keep the game alive, for forever. ^_^ Well, not really forever, but for as long as we have the motivation! Here are some guidelines: *Please do not discuss any 3rd program/hack! *Toxicity is not welcomed! *If you have a problem with another player, please contact a Moderator through Direct message! *If you notice suspicious behaviour, please contact a Moderator through Direct message! *People might get Kicked, or even Banned, depending on their attitude! *Bans will not get revoked! So please behave as well as you possibly can! So what can we do around here: Chat with other Diablo players, discuss items, drops, builds. Find other players you can Speedrun/Walkthrough with! Trade item for item, without having to look ingame for hours. I will try make this discord reach the whole diablo 2 community, and one day... One day, we'll get gud.Yiup14 9h

16h [D2] PSA - I Still SandBox Dear Fellow Nephalem, I have and continue to use Sandboxie as it is a simple VM ware. I have never been banned from Classic Battle.net on any game for any reason. Here are some things that can/will get you banned though: - Using CD-Keys purchased from a website on the cheap (they are stolen). - Using a "loader". You simply can't use any software that alters Diablo II in any way. I recommend deleting anything related to a bot/loader/maphack and avoiding those websites/people who use them. - Don't use proxies. You can be at a friend's house, hotel or other areas and be safe. - Keep in mind you don't instantly get banned for cheats. If you cheated last season on an account, then used that same account for this ladder you're still bannable for the previous offense. - There's lots more reasons for getting banned, here are some common reasons/codes: The following are codes and explanations for why Blizzard closes your battle.net account(s). (0) Offensive account name (1) Advertising an inappropriate website Inappropriate websites may include sites that promote or provide game hacks, programs with embedded virus code, ****ography, or other destructive or intrusive materials that are not appropriate on Battle.net. (2) Spamming in a channel Please be advised that Blizzard Entertainment has an aggressive stance against any account that is used to spam a Battle.net chat channel. Spamming a Battle.net channel disrupts the normal flow of dialogue in the chat room and violates the Battle.net Terms of Use Agreement and/or End User License Agreement of the game. (3)Stealing other player’s passwords (4) Attempting to obtain CD-Keys Please be advised that Blizzard Entertainment has an aggressive, zero-tolerance stance against any account being used by someone to obtain or steal CD-Keys or to con or trick users into giving out their CD-Keys on Battle.net. This offense violates the Battle.net Terms of Use Agreement and/or End User License Agreement of the game. (5) Harassment of other users Please be advised that Blizzard Entertainment does not support or condone the use of any account to harass or threaten other users on Battle.net. This offense violates the Battle.net Terms of Use Agreement and/or End User License Agreement of the game. Harassment may result in the closure of the account or even the temporary or permanent banning of the associated CD-Key. (6) Inappropriate use of a bot Blizzard Entertainment does not tolerate bots spamming chat channels or the use of bots to congest channels, which disrupts the normal flow of dialogue. This directly violates the Battle.net Terms of Use Agreement and/or End User License Agreement of the game. (7) Offensive or racist comments While Battle.net is a mature environment, we will close accounts that are used to violate the Battle.net Terms of Use Agreement and/or End User License Agreement of the game. We firmly believe that Battle.net's strength lies in its community, and racist or extremely offensive comments are not tolerated. (8) This account was detected using a third-party program (hack) with one of our games on Battle.net. This account is now permanently banned Any third-party program that is designed to affect the way the user interacts with Battle.net is considered a hack program. This includes seemingly harmless third-party utilities that work with the game to provide functions that were not included by the game designers. While many of these utilities might not have been created to disrupt the balance of the game, they alter the original design of the program. The detection of any such program by Battle.net may result in the closure of the user's account or even the temporary or permanent banning of the associated CD-Key. (9) Impersonating a Blizzard representative Please be advised that Blizzard Entertainment has an aggressive, zero-tolerance stance against any account used in an attempt to impersonate a Blizzard or Battle.net representative. This offense violates the Battle.net Terms of Use Agreement and/or End User License Agreement of the game. (10)Inappropriate Activities (such as lossbotting, forum abuse, etc)blizzfanboy21 16h

16h No Ballance in Overwatch I understand making some characters easier to play, but in my opinion you shouldn't make characters weaker and call them harder to play, I used to main junkrat until I noticed how strong he is compared to other character. 1) lets compare junkrat to doomfist, doomfist's lasers are only good when very close and still need high skill and great aim to successfully kill with, while junkrat has op 100+ bombs that bounce off of walls for longer aim and lucky shots, junkrat can use his bombs from almost everywhere and still kill. 2) doomfist's powers are very weak, his uppercut and seismic slam barely damage, unless you jump from very high to use the seismic slam and is still easily avoided because of its slow speed, junkrats mine is quick and very strong, and his trap is in some cases unavoidable (also very strong) the only thing I left out is doomfist's punch because its hard to aim with, needs to charge up to really damage, and if missed with, will leave you in the middle of the enemy team helpless. 3) junkrat can kill from basically anywhere, while doomfist has to get up close and most likely die. there are still tons of things I haven't mentioned and these aren't the only characters with a big difference in strength, I only mentioned them because they are my most played, and it really hurts me to see this unfairness of how some characters cant be beat and some characters were only made so blizzard could say "here, we made a character so shut up", and then justifying it with weakening a character a bit and saying "its balanced now" while it doesn't really change much and they will be buffed back in the future. I know you cant really change doomfist into a long range death machine but at least higher his damage/range a bit or lower his cooldowns so his moves could be more than escape methods because we already used the fist and are in enemy territory. please take consideration into future characters. also, moira is just a healing symetra, that wasn't original at all and disappoints me, she literally has her beam and death ballDude14441 16h

23h I dont understand acted by blizzard (8) Blocks are not valid to those who play honestly Users who have been honest players are throwing sacred weekends on the floor. Is this really the best Blizzard company that America's best game can show? Our old Diablo II minority users in South Korea are very disappointed this time. If Blizzard is giving up propaganda in Korea and enjoying the outside world, this case will be enough. But if you are accompanied by a little recognition and improvementof your irrational principles, we will understand. I am sure that it will be necessary to restore honest and correct users who are unjust. Without malice, you are under the pretext of being for us. All the Korean users agree that the tyranny of abuse of power should be stopped at this point. It will be expressed in any way. I regret it. To the executives저스틴비버1 23h

1d Fun start after 4 years off Just sharing the story of joy my two boys and I have had (even after that shaky reset) since coming back after my 4 years off with D3. We decided to run 3 pallys this time around to start this season, figuring that the aura stacks would make up for not having any form of teleport. Two offensive and one defensive pally is what we landed on, and loaded our mercs up to do most of the heavy lifting for us in the early stages. We didn't need to worry too much about an insight as I ran Meditation, or an infinity as my youngest ran Conviction We've picked up just enough runes to cobble together a few pairs of spirits and an insight, and just made it to Hell level. I even managed to find a +40 res pally shield when we were clearing out the hole in A1. All in all, a great fun start after spending so much time away. See you all in SanctuaryDtwoJade2 1d

1d Please Help about payment method. Can I use VISA Gift Card to buy or add fund on my Blizzard Account? If I can how? Because I do not have credit card and there is no available Blizzard Gift Card in my region that i can buy, even online. So, this is my only option to shop on Blizzard. If only Blizzard allows us to pay on Convenience Store, that would be more easy to shop and comfortable like any other game client like Steam or OriginEpicName1 1d
1d [DII] The Sound of Gabriel Igniting Other Angels In the 1995 movie The Prophesy, Archangel Gabriel, played by the one and only Christopher Walken, ignites killed angels with a kiss of his finger. The sound of the ignition is very much an everyday part of D2 LoD. I think the developers of Diablo were inspired a lot by this movie (Gabriel is searching for a corrupt soul stone). Although the sound in the movie happens when he kisses his finger and points it at the corpses, the sound in this video is dubbed over with music, but reused seconds after the music stops. Who can guess the sound from this quick clip? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2FytKckpmsBearTribe0 1d

1d Widescreen? Just yesterday when I was playing, I had no problems the game spanned my 1920x1080 screen with no distortion and no black bars on the sides. I was having a crashing issue and found a solution by completly removing D2 from my computer and redownloading it from Blizzard.net. But now after doing that, There are black bars on the sides of the screen and everything is squished together, Is there a way to fix this? -BobTheBaconator2 1d

1d Come Blizzard and proof that im using hacks LOL sorry but you are wrong blizzard acc: xtyna char: xtyna eu softcore ladder something has implemented blizzard in its anti-cheaters system that is affecting legitimate players, and here is the proof, I have been a victim of this you say. My account is closed with a sorceress level 60-70 and without any valuable item in it, after doing a break of 8-10h with the game I find that my account is closed LOL Last week I bought the game, cd-key and downloaded the official installer. Keys are registered on my account, and account are registered on my mail Of course ticket support is open and I'm waiting for a reply from a GM, because there must be something in the detection system that is wrong, I am scared for having bought this game and receive my account closed in 24h I do not have any files related to illegal third party programs on my hard drive and nothing like that. the installation is clean and I have only played a few hours to reach hell I have also been reading about how can blizz close accounts for other uses and not just for 3rd programs, like for share account or sell names, use the skills through the scroll-mouse or anything like that described in TOS But i don't use anything... just a clean d2 installation and playing 100% legit.... can you proof that im using hacks or anything? no, cause i don't use nothing return my account or refund my money ... pleasextyn30 1d
1d Unable to Connect Hi, I'm unable to connect to the Europe server of battle.net. I was wondering if this is something on the server side or my side, because I have messed around with the registry keys and ended up deleting them all because I thought I messed something up. I reinstalled after that and it still isn't working. Is the server down? Or do I need to do something specific to make the game work again?Garr3 1d
