Updates Needed?

It is evident that BNETDocs Redux is old and requires a little more updated information.

Some packets remain "Research required" and others remain even undocumented but known. If you know of a packet that needs more information added to it, or of any packet(s) that are not added to the documentation, please contact Jailout2000 at ValHalla Legends. He can help get it sorted out.

When you contact him, make sure you provide information such as your username, a website linking to the information if possible (proof of your information), and your own input on the packet if you have any. This will make it possible for him to compile all the data and post it up to the packet's documentation page.

BNETDocs is still alive and, well, not so active. By helping update the documentation, perhaps it can become an active place once more. Due to the vast knowledge and accuracy, it is impossible for one person to update it all by them self.

BNETDocs Continues

Just wanted to let ya'all know the BNETDocs domain was expiring on Oct 31, so I've gone ahead and renewed the domain. So BNETDocs will continue to exist. Not much news to many of you, but there were some who were inquiring due to lack of updates on the BNETDocs core itself.

I realize that I've been slow in updating, and I apologize. It hasn't been quite easy since I've been quite busy (I work 50 hours a week at my job as tech support for a telecommunications company, recent acquisition of, and also started up my own corporation in marketing). But rest assured, work has most definitely NOT stopped on BNETDocs v2-- it is my goal to release BNETDocs v2 BEFORE Blizzard releases v2!

Just an update as to whats happening with BNLS

Most of you, if you use BNLS, should know that ValHalla Legends stopped hosting BNLS long ago. And now with JBLS going offline also, we are forced to depend on our own servers, or other peoples servers that we may not trust.

There is a large list of servers available at the BNLS Checker website. You can use this large list to find one that works for you. This list provides online/offline counts, percentage of uptime, owner, and even where it is located.

Another list, but is not updated as much as the above, can be found at this website.

New WarCraft III Patch

There is a new patch available for WarCraft III Reign of Chaos and WarCraft III The Frozen Throne.

   fixing unsafe type casting.
   - Hash Table - Save Item Handle
   - Hash Table - Save Unit Handle
   - ...
   - Hash Table - Load Item Handle
   - Hash Table - Load Unit Handle
   - ...
   - Hash Table - Get Handle ID

   execute arbitrary code in maps.
- Fixed the JASS unsafe type casting exploit ("return bug").
- Fixed several World Editor crashes.

As a result of this, there is also a new VerByte for both WAR3 and W3XP.

WarCraft III Warden Update

WarCraft III, as of April 14th, 2009, has an updated warden system. Most bots these days don't know how to handle the warden packet correctly, or don't know how to handle it at all.

Here is a log received from FooLOps 1.9.9 logged on as JailBot@Lordaeron:

00000000  ff 5e 29 00 40 b8 fe b2  42 60 35 d6 c1 64 87 0e  |.^).@...B`5..d..|
00000010  77 4e 88 ef f4 27 b9 33  d1 9e 19 c4 2e 84 84 cc  |wN...'.3........|
00000020  da dc 94 e3 4f 46 9d cf  5a                       |....OF..Z|

This is affected for the latest WarCraft III patch 1.23. All bots that do not automatically know how to handle this will be disconnected after 2 minutes, just like if they were using StarCraft or Brood War.

This will render most clans without bots for a while, so hang tight.

In conclusion to this, I have updated this website by posting this news post and updating SID_WARDEN's "Used By" to include WarCraft III and The Frozen Throne.
