How to run Warcraft 3 in widescreen

The World of Warcraft hasn't consumed every orc-loving gamer in the world yet, and a look around the brilliant Warcraft Freaks website prooves that the same can be said for the Warcraft community. Not everyone has been turned into a WoW slave. Warcraft III is still massive, and hopefully (just like the Dreamcast) it will refuse to die. Whatsmore, the Warcraft Freaks, being all freaky and stuff, have managed to find a way to run Warcraft III in widescreen.

The operation of course involves tweaking the registry (back it up first) in the most simple of ways. Locate HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Blizzard Entertainment > Warcraft III > Video, right click on it, go the Change> Select "Decimal"> Fill in new value way and input your desired resolution (resheight/reswidth). Easy, isn't it? And it'll make them annoying black lines go away. In case you got confused though, click here for a step-by-step guide.
