After I've upgraded to 10.5, I'm getting the following error after more than an hour of playing online through battlenet: "Another application is using a needed game port. Quit other applications and try again." Quitting Warcraft and reentering fixes the problem for another few hours..

Anyone who has seen this problem, or has a solution?

I have just gotten this problem myself.  I have installed Warcraft 3 + TFT + patch to 1.21b.  I got my (brand new) Macbook two days ago, upgraded to 4gigs of ram, and have installed xcode and a wikipedia widget.  That's it---now you know my entire system configuration.

I was playing DotA version 6.51 on Bnet over wireless, and I did have safari opened in the background.  The first time that I got the port problems Warcraft hung permanently when I tried to quit (so that I didn't know how to get out other than to reboot).  I've just gotten the port problem again and after this post I will try to quit Warcraft.  Wish me luck.

I've included as much info as I can in the hopes that we can find something in common.  Like the previous post, I would love to hear of a solution.

Update:
After posting I switched back to WC3, which had been minimized.  The program was dead without me having tried to quit, but I was able to force quit without issue.

You seem to be having the exact same problems that I have. The quitting problem (Seen that on several machines over the years, and noone else but me seems to have them...) and the ports problem.

If its of any coincidence, I usually also only play DotA. I'll try to see if that has anything to do with it. Note, im also only playing on wireless.

Regarding your quit-crash-issue, a force quit *always* works for me!

I have contacted Blizzard, Apple, Quest ( My ISP ) and and even Actionec ( the manufacturer of my modem ) I have no router I am using wireless. Representatives from apple told

me it is definitely not a network problem because I can connect to battle.net. Blizzard was not helpful at all :angry: , mac support will only correspond via emai :angry: l, and they

told me they could

not help me because there were not enough people calling in to say they have this problem :bleedingeyes: . I have forwarded my ports, but that did not work either. When I looked

into the software

issue and checked whether any other ports were ACTUALLY being used by other application in my activity monitor there weren't :( . All I see in common is that some of us are using

wireless. But I was told that should not matter, by apple and blizzard. All i can say is that The Tech support people haven't figured it out. I have also tried deleteing registry files,

reinstalling, and looking for patches. failures. HELP! :bleedingeyes:

Okay, I'll try to send an email to Blizzard to see if they can start looking into this problem.. I'm having quite a few issues with Warcraft 3, but I also play it a lot.. 8)

Haven't got a fix unfortunately. But I was just wondering, are you running Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.4?

:angry:
This issue only exists with OS X10.5.
Using 10.4 there are NO port conflicts using wireless or cat5 cabling.
As of this week I have upgraded to 10.5 and while it is a beautiful OS this small (large?) issue is pissing me off! I get to play 1 game of DOTA and then I have to force quit Frozen Throne and restart it in order to play another game.

Frozen Throne needs an overhaul as well to make it Intel native. My Macbook Pro (Core Duo not 2 Duo) overheats and burns my palms each time I play!!!  :blink:

And Blizzard and Apple are refusing to acknowledge this problem????

Just hope Starcraft 2 is worthwhile- can't play Starcraft any more due to all the hacking!

W3:TFT *is* a universal binary! But I agree, it needs some serious CPU fixing.. O_o My MBP is starting to shop artifacts on the screen, due to overheating after playing a few hours of Warcraft... Hilarious.

I havent had that crash, but I did have another non-realated one yesterday. And I just mailed Blizzard to tell them their crash application doesn't work, but they didn't seem interested in it.. So I emailed them again, and now im waiting for a response. :)

Pixeltoy, I've especially been having that problem of late with Foots vs Grunts games, and those are by far my favorite game types so its incredibly frustrating!

I've also been having the problem with 'another application using a needed game port' or whatever it is.  Thain - please keep us posted if there's anything they tell you about.  If there's an address I should email them at as well (the whole 'squeaky wheel gets the grease' thing) then I will.

Well, you can try at macsupport@blizzard.com - But the last time I wrote them on the problem they just gave me the usual "Try reinstalling the software" - Duh, I've seen it on 3 different machines!

Hi everyone, first post etc etc.

I, too, have had some trouble with the latest WC3 patch. I'm running Leopard on a Macbook 2.0 Ghz C2D, and since about a week ago, I've been getting kernel panics while playing the game. Curiously enough though, it only happens while playing DotA. After about 1-1,5 hrs, the game crashes and I get the usual "You must restart your computer" kernel panic screen.

I have also come across the "port in use" bug, although not as frequently as some of you are describing. In addition to this, I've also gotten "fatal error" crashes.

Any suggestions as to how to fix this? I have of course tried reinstalling WC3 (haven't gotten around to a full Leopard reinstall yet, but seriously.. all that for an error that should be very easy to fix?) It is also obviously WC3 related since I have never gotten a kernel panic before last week, and only WC3 triggers it. At first I thought it could be due to overheating, but I've been playing WC3 on this machine for over a year without experiencing this.. until now. :(

Any input is welcome and encouraged.

Sounds strange that you are getting KPs, because I've always found War3 extremely stable (Apart from above mentioned issues), and DotA is also stable at the moment. I would actually assume that you have some flawed RAM?

In either case, could you post the first of a KP crashlog?

I immediately thought of faulty hardware, but since the KPs only occur during WC3/DotA, I find this a bit strange. I have no trouble running several other memory-intensive applications, even at the same time.

In any case, I'll keep the info from the KP screen next time one occurs, and post the results here.

And thanks for answering my post, by the way. :)

Looks like its related to either a hardware mouse, or your logitech driver.

Yeah, just noticed the bit about "Logitech" in the KP log, and when I think about it, my mouse is somewhat faulty, as it stops working for a few secs once in a while. How odd, something like that can actually crash a computer, haha. I'll try replacing it and see what happens. :)
