Q: Unable to see/join game in LAN

Make sure your firewall/antivirus is turned off or configured so that Java & Game can access the Internet.


Make sure your Game is patched to the correct game version. See: Warcraft Latest Patch


Comodo Firewall conflicts with Java! Read problem & solution.


Try restarting your computer, to reset everything, if it still does not work.


If all else fails, make a post, clearly describing the problems, what you have done, the error messages, and your current system set up, in the Help & Support forum


An example post would look like this:
"No game in LAN

I have followed all the steps in the Help pages but still cannot see the game in LAN. I have turned off my firewall, patched my Warcraft to the compatible version, restarted my computer. I am using Windows Vista, ZoneAlarm firewall, and am behind a Wireless router. When I join a game, the 'Game Connection' opens but I do not see a game in LAN. Please help! Thanks

Q: How to configure my router to host?

Before anything, it is always advisable to disable Antivirus and Firewall when playing games. Re-enable them after the games. This is because they can slowdown your gaming experience and cause problems such as the inability to host/join games.


Here's how to configure your router


1. Find out the Manufacturer, Model of your router.


2. Select the Router from this page and click "Click here to skip this advertisement..." at the TOP RIGHT to go to the instructions page. .


3. Follow the instructions, that's it!

Q: Oops! Unable to find game. Please check your ...

Make sure you chose the right Warcraft/Game version when hosting.

Also, if you are behind an antivirus/firewall or router, make sure you disable them *OR* have port forwarded the necessary ports.

Q: Unable to launch the application

When you try to join a game, and open the Game Connection (dotapod.jnlp) file, you get the following message:

First, try turning off your antivirus/firewall and see if it works. If it does, configure your antivirus/firewall to allow DotaPod/Java the necessary permissions, or turn them off whenever you are playing games. (Remember to turn them back on later!)

If the above does not work, let's investigate. Click Details.

If the More Information window displays the following error message, the problem is caused by an unsupported version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and the JRE settings that do not allow to download and install the supported version of the JRE:

The application has requested a version of the JRE (version 1.5.0+) that currently is not locally installed. Java Web Start is unable to automatically download and install the requested version. This JRE must be installed manually.

If the More Information window displays the following error message, the problem is caused by the JRE settings not allowing temporary Internet files to be saved on the computer.

Q: Top reasons to use DotaPod

Add us on Facebook!
| Join us

Follow us on Twitter!

Top Reasons to Use DotaPod

1. No download or installation required


DotaPod makes use of Java, available in most modern browser. Platform flexibility is a stalwart feature of DotaPod with all flavors of Linux, UNIX, and Windows being supported. Mac and mobile phones too.


2. Easy & Lag-free


Nothing to configure. Just connect and play at amazing speed.


3. Track your game statistics (View now)


A unique game-engine architecture allows DotA professionals to play and keep track of their skills specifically for particular heroes, with the end result being amazing performance records.


4. Shared Revenue Gaming Community


Unlike other platforms that makes you pay, we are totally free (including our source codes), and we are the first to reward users with money for playing with us. With DotaPod, you can generate income simply by participating actively. Creating games, making posts, are just some examples how you can start playing & making money.


5. High Performance and small footprint


Nearly no system requirements, and with a footprint of only 1MB to run Game Connection, your game can use even more system resources, therefore increasing smoothness and stability.


6. Open Source Freedom and 24 x 7 Support


DotaPod is built by its users and is open to all forms of contributions. Jeric T., the steward of DotaPod, looks after DP and plans its direction. Many organizations are hesitant to fully commit to open source software because they believe they can't get the type of support or professional service safety nets they currently rely on with proprietary software to ensure the overall success of their key applications. The questions of indemnification come up often as well. These worries can be put to rest with DotaPod as complete around-the-clock support as well as indemnification is available through DotaPod Network & Forums. DotaPod is not a typical open source project as all the software is owned and supported by DotaPod, and because of this, a unique cost and support model are available that provides a unique combination of open source freedom and trusted software with support.

Q: Shared Revenue Gaming Community

How does this work?


What we have done is setup a system so the ad revenue can be shared between all active members of this site.


This site serves advertisements on different parts of the site, in the upper right area as well as inline when viewing a thread. We use Google AdSense to automatically serve relevant ads for the content on the page. Google pays AdSense publishers on a per click basis as well as per impression.


If a user has an AdSense account, they have the ability to credit their account with the ads served on games they create, threads they start or participate in.


If you have any questions about it, please visit this thread.


Why are you doing this?


A community is nothing without the users. So I figure why not let the users make a little money on games and threads they participate in.


Furthermore, by doing so, I'm hoping to encourage quality games and posts, so the community can build and sustain itself.


What are the restrictions?


* You must have an AdSense account through Google.


* You must have at least 25 games created and played *OR* 50 total posts within the forum to participate (once you reach that level, the ads displayed from that point forward are retroactively applied to all the threads you started or participated in).


* For games & threads you start, your AdSense publisher ID will be used 50% of the time when the game or thread is viewed.


* Your AdSense publisher ID will be used 50% of the time when the thread is viewed by post (and you made the post).


Is this allowed by Google?


DP's makers have gone over the AdSense terms and conditions a few times (both the Overview and the legal version), and are not able to find anything to suggest that it's not allowed. I've done the same and found nothing. But if you know (or believe) otherwise, I would like to hear from you.


How do I set it up?


You will need to go to your User control panel. Within there, you will find an option to enter your AdSense Publisher ID (this starts with pub- and is within the HTML Google generates for you in your account). You can optionally specify a Slot ID (also found in the HTML codes, the google_ad_slot value) if you wish as well.


Once you have a Google AdSense Publisher ID on your account and you have made more than 25 games *OR* 50 posts on the site, any game/thread you participate in has a chance to show ads that credit your AdSense account.


I'm worried about you having my AdSense Client ID.


The only info we need for it is info that is publicly available if you look at the source of any page that has your AdSense ads.


If you are still worried about it then the best thing to do is not participate.


How long will you be doing this?


While I can't guarantee it will run forever, there are no plans to stop it at any point.


But we do retain the right to halt the program or make adjustments to it as necessary if it's not working out in it's current form for whatever reason.


I look at the HTML source on posts I've made and I never see my AdSense Client ID.


The system will never display your own AdSense Client ID to you (as long as you are logged in).


This is to prevent people from unknowingly violating the Adsense terms and conditions (specifically the part about clicking your own ads).

Q: Shared-revenue Organization

Frequently people ask why DotaPod is not a non-profit. There are several advantages to the for-profit shared-revenue organization structure to that of a non-profit.

  • - Our experience with Zion/ showed us that financial stability guarantees the project's survival. DotaPod is not subject to the whims of a bad fund raising climate. We will always be here.

  • - Freedom from funding constraints, changes in the tax code, and interference from large donors.

  • - Ability to plow profits back into the site. DotaPod's profits are used to finance the participating developers, engineering expenses, site redesign costs, back office administration, and other projects which could not easily be accomplished through volunteers alone. (See: User Profits & Developer Profits)

  • - Profit for DotaPod's founder and steward, Jeric T. While some may wish that Jeric received no financial compensation for DotaPod, profitability assures that Jeric will remain as DotaPod's steward and will be financially as well as emotionally motivated to help DotaPod accomplish its mission.

  • - Ability to finance community meetups. Every year DotaPod financially sponsors DotaPodians to travel to one location and meet face to face. Such meetings strengthen our community and increase our ability to collaborate.

  • - Ability to donate to charities and non-profits.

  • - Ability to serve as a role model. If DotaPod succeeds at becoming a significantly sized profitable company, it will influence other businesses and entrepreneurs to follow our lead. More similar organizations would be good for the world.

Q: Why does DOTAPOD look like Quake Live?

DOTAPOD 2.0 IS Quake Live! No I'm kidding. DOTAPOD was built because I wanted an easy way to play games, without having to download & install anything - all within a browser, and work on Windows & Mac. I managed to do that. Soon, Quake Live came out, and we shared the same vision - to build a gaming platform IN a browser. I loved it!

DOTAPOD is built during my freetime, and I do not have enough to work on the design. So until someone comes along to help, it would look like that. (Actually it's temporary, it will change)

Q: Why does DOTAPOD say 'Welcome to Zion'?

I loved the 1997 cult movie, The Matrix. And most importantly, I believe in God.
