Added changelog for previous update v3 from 3 April

Internal Hotfix v3 (03 April '19)
- added French language support;
- added workaround for DEP issues on some machines;
- removed Administrator flags from Launcher.

There is no critical bugs with game. Just use admin rights, and set video dfriver to "Keep aspect ratio". Then choose proper settings in Launcher. E.g. 1920x1080 is lowest then 1600x1200.

Remember, that normally no one soft install compatibility options. Only users must do it and only if needed. Ofc "administrator right" on game link file is required option. Remove DPI scaling (may be named different on different build of Windows) and any other comp-ty from all other bat\com\exe etc. files in any games folders from GOG installers and Galaxy. Only some games required DPI scaling comp-ty and only on current Windows 10 builds (cause it work better than in all prev. Win's)
If you run game from another software (Steam, GOG Galaxy, or some tools like DxWnd) - set admin rights only on them. Users on Windows XP-7 must also set *disable themes\menu themes\DWM* in Compatibility tab of link file on any games, same as "admin".

Its be better if GOG set that *disable themes* by installers, cause that not available in Windows 8\10 but still can be enabled in Registry.

Unfortunately, no. Any GOG staff have blue nicknames. Like on Blizzard forums. :) Some moderators probably have\not have that blue names...
And like on blizz, all topics with blue posts labeled by special symbol.

Right on. Glad they are doing patches thanks for keeping us updated. Hope it does not take too long to get the text fixed.
It would be great if you could add the full Humans and Orcs soundtracks to the game. The B.net version of the soundtracks is missing huge amounts of each of them.

It's probably legal issues holding that back, but you might contact Support and let them know you do have a copy.
GOG should replace the music in the Battle.net edition with a rip of the music from the original Warcraft 2 since the Battle.net edition contains several tracks that have been shortened to save space. Having such great tracks cut short is not very satisfying. Warcraft 2 is 50 % music, 5 % graphics, 15% sound and 30% gameplay to me :)

Similar for me. I'd put it at 40% music, 20% graphics, 15% sound, 25% gameplay. But without the music, all the other aspects are greatly diminished in their appeal factor. The music bolsters the rest and gives life to it.

Warcraft II has one of the greatest soundtracks ever in gaming history. To have the game be available but without the full, non-glitchy soundtrack is a tragedy and travesty, and an injustice to PC gaming history.
