While the world waits and wonders what GOG will do after releasing WC3, there's something current owners of WC4 can do to jazz up their game. Fans with the CD version of The Price of Freedom can take advantage of an awesome patch (700 k exe) that allows both DOS and Windows editions to play the special DVD version's high quality movies. Popsicle Pete perfected the execution of this upgrade based on technology originally developed by gulikoza. It's easy to install, and all the files you need are the patch and VOB video download packs below. Even if you're not interested in enhancing your WC4 game right now, the movie zips are super fun and can be played in programs like VLC.
To streamline installation and setup, Pete's put together this exe (700 k) upgrade pack. It's designed to work with both the Windows and DOS versions. Simply run the installer and and it will prompt you to insert your CDs to install the game. At the end of the install, you will be asked if you want to open the appropriate folder to drag the DVD video packs in to.
