10.4: Run Warcraft III on Intel Macs
Authored by: arnoct on Jun 30, '06 06:38:08AM

I'VE FIGURED IT OUT!!!!!!!!!!!

This explained a certain part but not all of it. IT'S QUICKTIME THAT'S THE PROBLEM! It also does this if DivX is installed. Maybe it's an incompatibility with codecs?

Anyway, I'd recommend that you'd archive all the non-default components if you have crash problems. It could be an incompatibility with the intel vs ppc (wc3 isn't universal,) but ALL the components in quicktime that aren't default, archive, and then unarchive them when you're done. I'm sure someone can whip up a shell script to do this, too, huh?

Arnoct is correct. Warcraft III uses QuickTime for the video. If you have the latest DivX codec the game will immediately crash when ran.
