Looks like Warcraft 3 now has its own official no-cd update. Pretty cool IMO.

1.21b

"Blizzard has issued a new patch for Warcraft 3, updating the original game and Frozen Throne expansion pack to version 1.21b. The update at long last removes the game's CD check."

Just thought I'd share. May make some people's wine issues a bit easier.

Ironically, I was just playing it right now! Great game..

I am noticing the direct 3D version of the game is playing really well on wine.. I stopped using the opengl switch. Some effects even display better. For instance the pandaren hero's flame breath didn't display in opengl..but works very well in direct3D.

In fact, the game plays perfectly in wine. Shame about the world editor though!
