WELCOME TO THE SERVER THAT'S HERE 4 LIFE!
Since Blizzard prematurely released reforged with it being about 60% complete at best and lacking stability and many features such as clans, profiles, many other promised features and a fully functional game. I decided we needed classic WC3 back. I also missed the old bnet look, it just felt better and a nicer/bigger chat for communication etc. The new game just didn't feel like the same home we've all had for so many years.
Because of this we now have WC3-4Life and hence the name it will never die.
With this server and new bots that connect all servers around the world I'm bringing some new life back into CHF as well.
To download the WC3 client to play in this server the link options are below.
Its a pretty simple cookie cutter package to download and just move the wc3 folder to the right directory and check the Info folder for the READ ME file with 4 simple steps.
If you have any issues you can ask about it here. So far I've heard of McAfee AV blocking the wc3 files needed (because Mcafee sucks) and just needing to make an exception for them in the AV.
Also someone not able to run the .reg file because of admin permissions, if you run into this issue you can use a BNGatewayeditor program to add the server realm yourself, the info will be below for doing this.
Also if you have a black screen when first opening wc3 try pressing enter or Esc, its just the video first trying to play. If this doesn't work go into C:\Program Files (x86)\Warcraft III 1.28.5\ and delete or rename the Movies folder.
If you have any black screen issues during game it could be a video issue and you either need to install directX 11 or put -opengl at the end of your wc3 shortcut. Explained better: Here
