A number of Mac and Windows users are reporting issues with the Mac and/or Windows versions of WarCraft III, which they say has been updated with the newest version of the game.
The problems, reported by the Mac users, include a crash on startup that occurs during the game’s initial launch, a “broken” graphics app that causes the game to appear gray, and a bug in which the game crashes when attempting to save a game.
Users who are experiencing problems with WarCraft II are also reporting issues, including a bug that prevents the game from opening properly on some Macs.
“WarCraft III was updated to version 2.8 on Monday and is still stuck in the loading screen after launching,” one user, named “jr”, told PCGamesN.
“I am able to load a game but then the game doesn’t load and the game won’t restart.
There are no fixes.
I am still unable to load games because I have a corrupted version of Warcraft II.”
Another user, known only as “jb”, shared similar symptoms.
“When I started WarCraft 3, it didn’t crash.
I restarted it and the bug fixed it.
Now when I start the game, it does crash.
But it doesn’t fix itself.
I just can’t load WarCraft 2 because it crashes on startup,” he wrote.
“This seems to be a bug with the game.”
WarCraft I and II are still free to download, though, and Mac and Linux users can install them on their machines.
WarCraft V, which came out earlier this year, was originally released in 2013 for the Mac, but has since been made available for the Windows platform.
“Mac and Windows players are experiencing issues with Warcraft III,” a WarCraft log posted by the Steam Mac page says.
“We have a bug affecting the Mac version of Battle.net and we will work to fix it ASAP.”
A version of Windows that’s available to download is also reported to be crashing, though the Mac players claim that it has been fixed by updating the game and re-installing the game files.
It’s unclear if WarCraft IV will be affected by the problems in WarCraft, but it’s not clear if it will be available for download either.
It also remains unclear if the fixes listed above will help alleviate the problem.
