How do I watch a Warcraft 2 Game?

When other people are playing a game in melee settings and you are watching the game, you pick the human race. What you want to do is allie all of the other players but do not share vision, and move to a location that is out of the way of the game. Be sure not to build. When you are the one playing and you have people watching your game, be sure to share vision with all of the watchers.

Also a nice utility for watching games is War2Observe created by xslider. It can be found in our downloads section.

How can I be banned?

Certain things we will not tolerate on this server. Abuse of our Ladder system and Hacking will result in a automatic ban from the server. If you are a user who is accusing somebody of hacking we need actual proof of the hacking by screen shots showing it and /whois (username). 

Sharing accounts is considered abuse on our ladder system. It will get your accounts reset and possible get you banned.

If you ever become to much of a problem to Users and Staff members we may decide to kick you off of the server, or at least Lock your Account. We want a user friendly enviroment to all new members. Yes we understand there will always be smack talking on this game, just be sure not to take it to far.

Why play on server.war2.ru over battle.net?

Battle.net no longer supports Warcraft II, there is no control over hacking and abuse. On server.war2.ru we have a team of admins who care about the community and do not tolerate hackers.

While battle.net servers continue to lose players while we continue to grow because of our War2Combat download that does not require a cd or cd key. We are able to provide a place to play for everyone who has lost their disc or cd key because the game is no longer sold.

Server.war2.ru has a better ladder system at war2.crystaldawn.net that automatically records all 1vs1 games and ranks players fairly instead of giving points.

Server.war2.ru makes it available to have characters in your name (~ ! @ $ ^ ) that are no longer available on battle.net.

Server.war2.ru hosts big tournaments for its players.

We care about the community and it's players and will continue to do all we can to make sure you can play the game for years to come.

War2 Freezing with Windows?
1. Download this program: http://www.nynaeve.net/?p=52
2. unzip the files to a folder.
3. Launch Dxwnd.exe
4. Select Starcraft/Diablo I/Warcraft II
5. Click the "Create Shortcut" button.
6. Browse out to your warcraft II folder and select Warcraft II BNE.exe
7. Enter a name for your shortcut. Ex: "War2Windowed" on your desktop.
8. Click save.
9. Click cancel to close dxwnd.
10. Run "War2Windowed" or whatever you named your shortcut.

It takes a little getting used to scrolling the map when in windowed mode. Because if you are like me, you just drag the mouse off the screen in the direction you want to scroll. But doing that in windowed mode pops the cursor outside of the war2 window and stops scrolling. So you either have to move the mouse to the edge of the window in the direction you want to scroll, or just use the arrow keys to scroll. There may be a way to force mouse input to stay in the war2 window, I'll have to play around with it.
