This should help all those whiners who can't figure out how to do Garena. Now, if only they would fix the problems with the stream of almost every live game...

To fix the stream you simply press Alt + 1 and it should be fine.

I haven't been having that problem, only once in a while, like every month or so.  Maybe you should try reinstalling or something.

Is this for Viewing games or playing games?  I'm guessing viewing, the game is probably a reload, and you don't have the saved data.

right click the garena shortcut go to properties, compatibility tick "run in compatbility mode for" and select windows 95.

Also im glad you made this thread because there are some people that are really that stupid that they can't locate the "garena tv" button.

Every time I try to watch anything on GGTV, I get the error message "Failed to estabilsh connection to GarenaTV".

No games show up, no matter which tab I click on; it's been this way for a few days now. I'm pretty sure it's not a problem with my network, since I've been able to watch GGTV from this comp on the same exact network until just now.

I would try reinstalling it, I had that problem and that solved it.

Just go to Control Panel -> Add and Remove Programs -> Garena -> Remove

Then reinstall it, www.garena.com

Hi all,

I would just like to ask one question about garena, how safe/reliable/secure/accepted is it compared to bnet?  What are the benefits to using it (other than to play with people on that network?)  Are there any security concerns?

I am glad to see the DOTA game and community is doing so well after all these years.

Thank you for your time.

Does that mean their forums are down?

I can view games fine but the only command that works for me is "speed #" to change viewing speed.  I hate joining a game late and not being able to jump to real time w/ the time command.  any idea why the others will not work?

Yes, when people drop, teams usually leave or remake.
