HowTo / Notes

Howto for Warcraft 3 or War3RPG (but can be used for other games as well :-))

You need to open outbound and inboundTCP and UDP port 6112... Same as on wintendo

Just install warcraft 3 + FT + newest patch (can be patched through or through patch found on Blizzard FTP server)

You need to remove or rename cinematics, because they are not working...

Official GIT / distro packages of wine does not have AcceptEX support which is needed for network warcraft 3 playing...

So you have to download wine from GIT, and patch it with a patch from this bug (due to this you can host games of course with configured firewall, forwarded ports and/or public IP): 9787

Get the patch from:


How to patch wine:
- How to use git is on wine wiki, so download the source.

git clone git:// ~/wine-git
cd ~/wine-git

- Now patch your wine with

patch -p1 < path/to/the.patch

- How to compile wine from source is in wine source README (just run ./tools/wineinstall )

So now you have working FT and you can host / join and LAN games (notice that after hosting a game you must restart w3tft before hosting another game - otherwise no-one can connect)

Now install Garena 3 (i have tried the Zip Install Version(All language) Download (For Cafe/Limited Users) - mirror 1, or Zip Install Version(All language) Download (For Cafe/Limited Users) - mirror 2 which installs and runs very fine)

You can rename the gg.smf file for disabling skin if you wish, but garena runs OK with skin now.

Run garena and log-in.

Wow! You can chat, open tunnels, join into rooms etc etc... :P
Left menu bar with games chooser is not fully visible and the bar is not resizable so you must click randomly to find your game... :-) War3 RPG is 3rd or 4th... :-))

Now open garena settings for warcraft 3 RPG and fill in:
Executable Settings: C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\war3.exe (path to your war3.exe in the wintendo way)
Game Bootstrap Parameters: -opengl(even if you have DirectDrawRenderer set to opengl in your registry)

Now if you hit Start Game your wc3:tft starts successfully. You are done! :P

GGTV works OK... Which is strange, because it is very same or similar hack IMHO as for LAN playing...

Please test garena on your linux boxes and report here AND on garena forum HERE , maybe we could talk garena developers to make garena opensourced... It would solve all problems...

Also much info you can get in Frozen Throne Appdb page

Confirming a Regression in wine 1.1.16. All commits from version 1.1.15 upto and excluding 1.1.16 worked absolutely fine. Till the time the regression is resolved, I suggest you build wine from git and compile wine-1.1.15 to run Garena.
