All the movies are loaded from the CDs... and I think the TREs all have the same filenames. I don't think you can play it from the hard drive.

Well, actually, I think you can play it from the drive. You have to copy the MOVIES.TRE file (I think that's what it's called) to your WC3 directory, and you'll have some trouble going from disc to disc since they all use that file name, but I believe it can be done. Experiment and tell us what you come up with.

Well, I guess you're stuck with the CD, then.

Tell me, are you running the game from DOS or from windows?

I think do do this you'd have to do some fancy byte surgery. WC3.con, isn't that supposed to be dictated by your install? If so overwriting it will lose your config, would it not?

That sounds about right.
As for moving from CD to CD - save very very often, someday, it'll say "Insert CD 2" and you will have to somehow copy the .TREs from there to your HD.
