All things GHost++ / Best VPS Provider for GHost++
« Last post by vranked on January 03, 2019, 10:31:08 am »
I made a quick guide on choosing the best VPS provider to run GHost++:

Basically, you want a VPS that is reliable, fast, but also offers low-latency connectivity to your players. I've tried out a ton of VPS providers and most of them are garbage, but I've identified the top ones and listed them along with the locations in which they are available in the buying guide.

I've also written several reviews of various VPS providers, and ranked the top ten best VPS providers, at

Hope you enjoy!

im being told it is not possible, even if you would manage to get players from both patches into the lobby it would cause a desync loading into the game. Guess we have to wait for the servers to update to 1.29
All things GHost++ / Running both 1.29 patch (officials) and 1.28 (private servers)?
« Last post by e0x on August 01, 2018, 11:42:05 am »

is it possible to host on official servers (patch 1.29) and private servers (1.28) at the same time?

I saw your code at:

but the players just get kicked after/while downloading the map.

Is there something I´m missing or is it just not possible?

Announcements / 1.29 Patch
« Last post by uakf.b on April 16, 2018, 05:14:52 pm »
I updated for the 1.29 patch. There's a note in the README about the patch:

For 1.29, put Warcraft III.exe in the bot_war3path. You may name it Warcraft III.exe or warcraft.exe.

war3.exe, game.dll, and storm.dll are no longer needed.

Also, use War3x.mpq instead of War3Patch.mpq. (Actually, it is recommended that you extract common.j and blizzard.j yourself and put them in bot_mapcfgpath, since the new MPQ file is very large. Make sure to also exclude War3x.mpq from bot_war3path so that the host bot does not attempt to read the archive.)

It was an issue with battlenet itself.
Announcements / Status of GHost++: January 2018

In the past, GHost++ was developed on Google Code. However, GHost++ is no longer maintained. Moreover, as Google has taken Google Code offline, there is no longer any official repository.

Nevertheless, GHost++ remains widely used for hosting Warcraft III games, and there are no major known bugs.

Here are two recommended options to obtain GHost++:

* The latest release of GHost++, plus minor stability improvements:
* Aura, a fork of GHost++ with a modernized framework but many features stripped out:

The first option has the full set features from GHost++. If you do not need these features, though, the second option is still maintained by the author as of January 2018.

To compile the first option on Ubuntu 16.04 (these steps should work on any recent Debian/Ubuntu release, but I can only guarantee that it works on Ubuntu 16.04):

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install -y git libboost-all-dev build-essential libgmp-dev zlib1g-dev libbz2-dev libmysql++-dev
git clone
cd ghostpp
cd bncsutil/src/bncsutil/
make && sudo make install
cd ../../../StormLib/stormlib/
make && sudo make install
cd ../../ghost
Announcements / More downtime
« Last post by uakf.b on January 12, 2018, 09:31:51 pm » has been offline for several months because I had to cancel the dedicated server that the VM hosting this website was on. I did not migrate it as the activity here was low, but it looks like there are still people using GHost++ who may find the information on this website useful. Thus, will remain online indefinitely.

I have got 3 bots that autohost, and another one which doesn't autohost, everything on one computer. Sadly for some reason, all bot reply in channel aren't shown 80% of the time, but sometimes they are:

when you do !map or !load or ?trigger, the bot doesn't say anything BUT you can clearly see in the botlog that he answered sommething, that wasn't displayed in the chat for some reason.

Could it be port conflics or blizzard bugs?
I need help on this, annoying to do !map xxx and no reply.

(when you do "!pub xxx" the game is ALWAYS created, but 80%of the tie you can't see the message "creating game XXX by XXX")

cdkey no muted, player no squelched

Possible you can run Launcher&Reconnect in WINE, but bot in linux, and set server addr in bot as local WINE addr. (But i don't know how to works WINE )
