  16. @alief: i have a problem updating the patch:
    first, my warcraft patch version is v1.22a. I want to update it into v1.24b, which i've downloaded it (about 37Mb) and i downloaded the v1.24a-v1.24b (777kb) too.
    When i patched the v1.24a-v1.24b, the patch was failed. It said 'unable to patch the game.ddl' or something like that.
    My questions are:
    1. Do i need the v1.23 patch to solve this?
    (i just think that maybe we have to update the patch continously)
    2. Are the patches' size right(37mb and 777kb))?
    3. If they are the wrong one, then what size are the right one?

    Please help me, coz i really confused by this prob.. =(
    oh yeah, i'm sorry that my english is bad.
