Recording Utilities

War2BNE Insight - 1.04 - (539 kb)
Author: ngk~laalaa
Another very cool replay program that lets use record multiplay games on The big advantage of this program over Djinn's WarVideo, is that the file sizes are comparable to the replay features of Warcraft 3 and Starcraft. However, it is a little more complicated to setup and so I have dedicated an entire page to it right here. There is also alot more information on the Official Page. If you have any replays that you would like to send it, please feel free.

WarVideo - (32 kb)
Author: DjinnKahn
This program lets you record your War2 games. All you have to do be running War2, alt tab out, and select "start recording" on the program. After you are done playing, click the "stop recording" button, and then save it as whatever name you want. It saves it as a dk2 file which you can only run by using this program. Each minute of gameplay is about 1 Megabyte in size. This is a very cool program, and another great piece of work brought to us by DjinnKahn.
Update: This is the new version of warvideo that keeps track of players stats DURING the game. Download the zip file and make sure that the 3 .bmp files are in the same directory as warvideo.exe .

Battle.Net Utilities

War Latency - (20 kb)
Author: DjinnKahn
This program fixes the very poor latency setting on Battle.Net. Run this program, and you can finally play with a much better pkt setting, much like playing on Kali or the Zone.

Unit Checker - (136 kb)
Author: Gothic Horror
Unit checker is a quick way of checking what values have been modified on any map. Just load whatever pud you want to check into the program, and will tell all the values that have been modified. The program also includes a thorough help file for any additional questions you may have. A great program for finding 'fixed' maps.

Saveview - (40 kb)
Author: DjinnKahn
Another amazing program that lets you take a saved game from (a .mlt file), select a specific player from the game, and save it to a single player game from that players viewpoint. The program can be used to see other players resource levels, and building placements. This will detect players who use the upgrade hack to get more than 2 sword or shield upgrades.

War2 Extra Speed! - (20 kb)
Author: DjinnKahn
Alright you fastest players, it's time to learn why fastest actually does take less skill than slower speeds. This cool program let's change the speed of the game, up to 17x faster than the fastest speed setting. You do this by running War2, and then alt tabbing out, and running this program. You have to have the game speed set on either even slower, or slowest, depending on which option you pick. Then the game will play at the default of 13 times as fast, or the number you type in yourself. This program must be running by everyone in the game, in order for it to work. And your game MUST be hosted on even slower or slowest, depending on which option you are going to try. If you want to test it out, you can use this in single player too. Good luck beating 1 computer now you skill-less freaks :). Muhahahaha.

This program let's you change the way the game works. You can edit who gathers resources, what units attack with, as well as how the computer AI builds up. I haven't played around with it too much so I can't help you that much. Just give it a try. It's not too difficult.
