Warcraft 3 Res Problem

This has been asked but not resolvedfor someone else i belive.


My resolution is 1440 x 900 which of course is not availble by default with wc3. However, vista and xp have a solution which is using the regsitry editor to change the hieght and width (you can read about it here Running Warcraft 3 in Widescreen at FreakyGaming). However, in windows 7...that option isnt there. In fact there isnt even a Video folder in the WC3 Registry.

Anyone have a fix for this? All i have in the registry for WC3 are the following keys (folders):

It must be streched because it's not game navive resolution...
Game has only 4:3 acept ratio... Your monitor is probably widescreen (acept ratio 16:10 or 16:9)

In any case of manipulating the resolutions, u cant change the aspect ratio. The game runs ONLY in 4:3. If u set your widescreen resolution, u will get the stretched image only.

World of Warcraft graphical problem?
Like every other minute, World of Warcraft freezes for a good 10-20 seconds then my screen goes black and then goes to my desktop then resumes back to WoW. This makes WoW pretty much unplayable. I have the latest drivers.
