Generate Code: All packets

Packet Information

Message ID:0x5C
Direction:Client -> Server (Sent)
Used By:Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne
Format:(DWORD) Product ID
Remarks:When logging onto WAR3, while having W3XP installed on your system; the client sends two CDKey hashes in SID_AUTH_CHECK and uses 'W3XP' as the Product Id in SID_AUTH_INFO. After a successful SID_AUTH_CHECK, the client then sends this packet with the Product ID set to 'WAR3' to make the switch from expansion to non-expansion.

In experimenting I've found:
(client I identified as in SID_AUTH_INFO) -> (client I sent in SID_SWITCHPRODUCT) = (result):
W3XP -> WAR3 = intended result, using WAR3 in channel.
Non-WarCraft III -> anything = short ipban.
W3XP -> non-WarCraft III = kick.
WAR3 -> non-WarCraft III = kick.
W3XP -> W3XP = passes, but obviously does nothing.
WAR3 -> WAR3 = passes, but obviously does nothing.
WAR3 -> W3XP = passes, but does nothing (using WAR3 in channel).
