Run Warcraft III in WideScreen!

Can someone please attach some screenshots of how the game looks on a wide screen when it's stretched and how it looks on a regular screen, and then one screenshot of how it looks with the settings in the guide applied please. I am thinking of buying a new pc and I'm in a dilema of weather I should get a 4:3 or a wide screen - and Warcraft (DotA) will play a good part in the decision.

The problem is: It depends on the monitor's size.

So its hard to see what it may look like.

Yea, but what I mean is, everyone here that tried id confirms that it does not stretch the 4:3 display into 16:9 or 16:10, but instead it uses a widescreen resolution and adds a bit of more visible area on the sides - right?

Yes, its not a stretch setting. It's actually a resolution setting and widens the overall image. So yes, playing DOTA in widescreen will produce more to see. I find it looks much better on a monitor that can do 1680 x 1050 seeing as that is the "high-def" resolution of 16:10 monitors.

Hey guys, I'm trying to install it but when I run the exe and I try to install Net Framework it says it can't open the filetype .application...

Any ideas?

You can get the .Net framework the windows updates. You just need to get the custom updates instead of the express ones. The included .Net framework with the .exe is just to make sure you have it.

Try that and see how it goes. If not, just try running regedit and changing the settings without installing the .Net framework.

You can download .NET Framework from Microsoft's site.

Or if you have Visual Studio, it comes with it.

Got it now, but the image is stretched... what did I do wrong?
I thought the "additional" pixels in width would be filled up with additional landscape and stuff. But instead the previous image is just streched in width... that sucks... What did i do wrong? Or did I just missunderstood what this tool does?

OMG, sorry, forgot this thread completely, I have this much more updated version, the old one is totaly crap, after my opinion

Here you go, this will do everything you need, just click "Ok" :patriot:

-> Download the .zip attacment
-> Extract the .exe file (only one)
-> Run the file
-> Click "Ok" to the dialog and your set :D

Sorry for not posting this earlier :acclaim

I just downloaded this under the impression that the in-game graphics would not be stretched. Sadly, this is not the case. The game still looks horrid on my 16:9 widescreen. But for what it's worth, your program is very easy to use...it just...doesn't fix the stretch issue.

Hi Jake, I just downloaded your program and it works!! WC3 is fully 1680X1050 resolution and my dual monitor doesn't get distorted anymore

Thank you so much!
