Common Problems

  • Warcraft III is not loading my save files
  • Error: The Map File referenced by the save game is different from the map file on your hard drive.

Campaign saves can only be loaded as long as the related map version hasn't been modified. If the map file was modified in the most recent patch, saves prior to that date will not work. 

If your save is from the current patch and your Operative System is Windows: 

  1. Check your Windows user has permissions to write on the Documents folder. Otherwise, try creating a new administrator account to resolve permissions issues.
  2. Check if OneDrive is preventing Battle.net Games from accessing or modifying files in your Documents folder and unsync your Documents folder from OneDrive.
