Requirements and Installation of DotA 6.88v3 RGC

Requirements to play DotA 6.88v3 RGC:

  • Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne version 1.26a, 1.27a or 1.27b.

DotA 6.88v3 RGC Installation:

  • Download Dota 6.88v3 RGC to your computer.
  • Copy the file ‘DotA Allstars 6.88v3.w3x’ to the correct path:
    For Wc3 Patch 1.26a, 1.27a, 1.27b or older: Put it into this path: ‘c:\Program Files (x86)\Warcraft III\Maps\Download\DotA Allstars 6.88v3.w3x’

Dota Allstars 6.88v3 RGC.w3x

DotA 6.88v3 RGC known Errors & Bugs:

  • Bug 1: “The map file is too big. Please choose a different map.”
    Problem: Dota maps higher than 6.88 do not work on LAN with Wc3 Patch version 1.27, 1.26a or older. Reason: The maximum map size is 8mb but Dota 6.88v3 RGC is bigger.
    Solution: You need to use the game.dll file of your Wc3 1.26a Patch. Backup your actual game.dll first (put it somewhere). Now Download the Wc3 1.26 game.dll and copy it into your wc3 folder.
  • Bug 2: Warcraft 3 crashes or shows an error message when loading a LAN game with Wc3 Patch 1.27b.
    Problem: This map is especially for the RGC (Ranked Gaming Client).
    Solution 1: So if you want to play Dota 6.88v3 RGC on another platform or on LAN download and play any other Dota Map that is stable for LAN: DotA v6.85k Allstars.w3x
    Solution 2: Use the game.dll file from the Wc3 1.26 Patch. Important: All players have to use the same game.dll file to play on LAN. Make sure all players have the same Wc3 version. With the Warcraft 3 version switcher you can change the Patch version easily.

Important: Use the old Warcraft 3 game.dll files only for offline LAN games and not for the games, otherwise you could be banned when it is identified as a Warcraft 3 hack or cheat.
Info: The Warcraft 3 bypass map file size limit patch, will not work with this map. It will crash Warcraft 3. So just delete it if you have them (forcefixsizelimit.mix & GameDll_fix_mapsize_limit.mix)
