10.4: Run Warcraft III on Intel Macs
Authored by: gil on Jun 20, '06 08:12:35AM

Nice, I'd like to run Warcraft III on my Intel mac too, but unfortunately it crashes.
While this hint might help some, it has no effect on my situation since I don't have the LiveType component :(

Perhaps I'll just install it in Boot Camp...

Have you checked your console.log? That's where I found out that this component was messing up Warcraft III.

I also don't have the LiveType component, and WC3 won't even run on my MBP. It will run fine BootCamped, though.
I'm thinking now that perhaps WC3 won't run because I've stripped PPC code? I could reinstall OSX to check, but that's not likely to happen anytime soon...

Yes, that's probably the reason. If you want to run Rosetta apps, you need PPC or Universal versions of all the libraries, components and plugins they load.

10.4: Run Warcraft III on Intel Macs

This could interest some: I had the same crashing problem, but on a PowerBook G4. It turns out that the culprit was the latest version of DivX codec, istalled by the package downloaded from divx.com.
Once I removed the DivX framework from my library, everything worked fine.

Thanks for this hint. This also cures my Warcraft III installation.
