WarCraft III: World of WarCraft (Wc3:WoW) is the most accurate WoW replica mod for WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne, featuring many elements as WoW does. It is a Single Player Campaign and the WarCraft III engine does not allow Campaigns to be played online or even on LAN. Wc3:WoW is currently being developed by a group of developers who hope to become pro some day called Condemned Entertainment. Previously, the team was given the simple 'Wc3:WoW Team' title, but after realizing it wasn't a professional team title to stick with, the team name was changed. Right now, the leader of Wc3:WoW is Craka_J, who had led the project through tedious development for over 4 years.

Post news Report article RSS Feed HDR & Bloom Released

Bet you WarCraft III modders out there are craving the new HDR and Bloom effects... well, now you've got 'em!

Posted by Craka_J on Dec 17th, 2009

For a while, I've been contemplating whether I release the HDR and Bloom effects myself and publicly. Due to the holidays coming up and the amount of users who ask me for them, I've decided that maybe it's a pretty good time to release it.

Although this may seem like it is my doing, I'd say you should thank Boris Vorontsov (Develops the ENB Series) for creating this mod and also thanks goes to xilefan for giving me the files and bringing this to my attention in the first place. I, nor any other current members of the Wc3:WoW Team, do not take credit for the HDR and Bloom mod. Boris Vorontsov created it.

"Where do I get it?!"
You can download it at our website's Downloads page.

I included a Readme which gives credit, explains how to install it, how to use it in-game, and how to remove it. Please keep in mind that HDR & Bloom does not work in the World Editor. If you figure out a way to enable it in the World Editor, let me know! ;-)
Oh and we're still working on making Wc3:WoW work for 1.24, so guess you guys must continue to wait patiently for screenshots and more encouraging news. Hope you enjoy the HDR & Bloom as much as I do though!

This makes warcraft 3 look so much better, thank you! Suggestion for users: change in the enbseries.ini the bloompowerday & bloompowernight to ~30 or ~35 for better results.
