Blizzard Entertainment have released patches for their popular real-time strategy games Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its expansion, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne.
The minor patch, labeled version 1.14b, weighs in at 17 megs for the english version and almost thirty megs for the localised versions, and incorporates the following changes:
Fixed an issue with recalling control groups and quickly pressing 'TAB' to change your selected subgroup.The patch also includes balance changes for the Undead and Night Elf characters, as well as adjusting damage and reward points for Neutral Units and Heroes.
Fixed an issue with custom save games from version 1.12 (including those from Orc Act I) so Hero Agility is recognized properly. Attack speeds will now be correct when loading from a previous save game.
Fixed an issue that caused Scroll of Town Portal to always place your units to the lower right side of your town hall instead of the location you clicked.
Fixed an issue with the Skeletal Mage upgrade that prevented the Raise Dead skill from working on the corpses inside Meat Wagons.
Fixed an issue that caused a unit to permanently lose 75% of its attack speed if it was Polymorphed or Hexed while under the effects of Unholy Frenzy.
Fixed an issue with Spirit Link in which, if one of the linked units was a Troll Berserker with the Berserk ability active, all units linked with that Troll would take the increased damage penalty associated with the Berserk ability.
Fixed an issue in which, if a unit casting a channeling spell died from Mana Flare, the channeled spell would linger in the area permanently.
Fixed an issue that caused the Call to Arms command not to work if you clicked the button an EVEN number of times.
Fixed an issue with Hero and unit ability orders in which, under certain conditions, ability orders would not be dispatched properly, causing "lag" or unresponsiveness.
Fixed an issue that caused Glaive Throwers to lose damage when the Vorpal Blades upgrade was researched.
The 1.14b path is available in two forms - one file for players of the original game, and a seperate file for players who have installed the expansion set. Click on the link below to grab the file -
