Warcraft III patch 1.24b is out! Visit to get it.

It's great to see that Blizz are still working on their old games :) Even Diablo 2 will be getting a patch soon.

The changes:


- Increased max map file size from 4 MB to 8 MB.
- Added the ability to store hashtable handles in a hashtable.
- Added GetSpellTargetX and GetSpellTargetY natives.
- Added a new base handle type "Agent" of which many types now extend from.
- Added a SaveAgentHandle native which can be used for saving most handle types.
- Added a JASS optimization dealing with global variable change events.


- Fixed a few false positives caused by the "return bug" fix.
- Fixed a crash related to hashtable reference counting.
- "Shadowing" global variables with local variables no longer is possible.
- Fixed a type conversion dealing with operators (i.e. adding a handle with an integer).

Yeah very cool, the thing I most liked is the 8 MB size for custom maps, as more models/sounds/images/etc can be imported. Benitoperezgaldos (talk) 20:45, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
8 MB for the win. I hope these changes don't make crash anything old.--Lon-ami (talk) 11:13, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
For the record, it did make a map crash. DOTALOL IconSmall ArcaneGolemMantriox/T/C 23:41, January 12, 2010 (UTC)
