    Hi,

    I've been playing Warcraft III and there's this annoying little program called banlist, where people can find out what country you are in. Are there any programs that can prevent this program from detecting which country I am coming from?

    Thanks.

    I have played WC3 for many years and have never heard of a way, if there is it would be news to me. You just need to find the right games where they don't check.

    This program is created to make an effort at keeping your Warcraft III custom games (for example DotA) free of notorious leavers. Thereby it offers a local database (to which you can add people yourself) to alert you when a "leaver" joins your game or someone you've kept some information about.

    Sounds like they are trying to ban bad people.

    Do you wish to find a program because many dota hosts say US/CA only? If so, tough luck, banlist keeps a iq database, the command /fromall takes the ips of every player except the one using banlist, compare it to the database, and tells where you are from, a proxy would probably work, but I don't think its worth spending that much trouble for.

    It's not a problem because my ISP gives me a different IP when I log in. The problem comes cuz I just find it annoying that some noobs misuse the banlist option.
