Go to add and remove programs and remove garena.  Go to www.garena.com and reinstall it.

I can't see any games at all. And when I create the games people can't see them.

Oh hi, sorry for not noticing your question earlier. Did you upload your war3.exe file? You need to if you didn't. If you have, I'm not sure, but I think this is it. When you try to watch a replay on Garena TV, and you haven't uploaded your .exe, this should come up.

If you have uploaded your .exe, it will look like the above.
If you haven't there will be a blank space where the red circle is. Click the box with the white circle around it and go to C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\war3.exe, upload it, and you should be good. If that isn't the solution, I don't know. Sorry.

You need to have the saved game data to watch it.  That means you need to watch the previous part of the match on Garena TV too get that data.

That should fix it.

There is no search box for Garena TV.  Once they get old its gone I believe.

Whever I use Garena for some reason I cannot use vent unless my screen is actually on vent. What I mean is that during WC3 (that's Garena is running) or just on the Garena website, I cannot use vent. If i actually have my mouse and everything on vent i can talk. My click to talk button is Control, not sure if that matters. Any idea whats up?

Oh sorry, I don't think there is an option for that.  If there is than I don't know about it, go to Garena.com/forum and make a post there in there support section.

This is actually a Ventrilo issue—and I have the same problem. I can't use push to talk when Warcraft or Garena is loaded. In the mean time, just turn of push to talk. Once you've done this the only was you can talk is by triggering it through speaking loudly so the microphone recognizes it, or tapping on the mic to turn it on. It's pretty annoying, but it's a useful alternative until you get in fixed. To turn off push to talk, just un-check the box that says "Use Push To Talk Hotkey ( PTT Mode )", which is right above where you set your push to talk hotkey. Good luck, I hope someone knows why we can't use push to talk when Warcraft in initialized. sad.gif

Then again, The_Lone_Wolf14, changing your hotkey might work for you. Try it.

So this is probably an ignorant question, but I've only just recently heard of garena.  From what I understand is that its a program to watch/ play dota. Does this mean its becoming the new bnet, only its just for dota instead of all those other custom games? And why is it so becoming so big now?  I'm on a mac and I dont know if i should install it or just play on bnet and be fine.  Seems a lot of clans want you to have it but i dont get why.  Sorry if this is dumb too

Though Garena is very popular, I don't think Battle.Net loses a great deal of players—for instance I use Garena and Battle.Net, but that doesn't mean I always have to use Garena or have to use Battle.Net, it's just another option (also, you can play other custom games on Garena).

And why is it so becoming so big now?

Garena reaps a lot of benefits, especially for foreign players. It:
  • Reduces lag being that it is played on LAN. In some cases, Asian players can play on an American player's host without lag or delay.
  • Every time you play a game—and based on how long the game is—you earn a certain amount of experience which eventually turn into levels, which is something Battle.Net doesn't have (unless you're a league player).
  • There are "higher level rooms" that allow you to play with more experienced players. These rooms are only attainable by level, but you are not restricted to play in them—if you're content with playing in the lower level rooms because you don't think you're ready, that's fine.
  • A great deal of leagues use Garena now, and it is sometimes required.

For the most part, Garena is very fitting for foreign players, but most North Americans play on Battle.Net. It's no problem to use both Garena and Battle.Net—it's not always a bad thing to mix it up tongue.gif, but both have their ups and downs. There's no cost to download it, so maybe you should just try a few games and see how you like it.

I guess it doesn't matter. Unless I'm blind, there is no mac version of garena so I guess I have to stick to bnet

All you have to do is right click ventrillo, and there should be an option that says "run as administrator." If you run it as an administrator, you will be able to speak while on Garena or while on Garena hosted BNET. I want a cookie for solving this.
