You'll need to insert the AI map into Warcraft III. Your Warcraft is most likely installed on your C drive. So the common place to put the AI map into is the following.
If this is not the case, select the correct path where you do have your Warcraft installed.
Right Click the map and make sure it's not blocked by your firewall.
After this start up your Warcraft III: Frozen Throne. Make sure you have it patched to 1.24e (188.8.131.5287) which is shown in the bottom-right-corner of the main screen.
Proceed by clicking on "Local Area Network".
Proceed with picking a name, and press the "Create Game" Button
- Make sure the game speed is set to Fast.
- Select the AI-Map in the list.
- Proceed with the "Create Game" Button

Proceed by using the "Start Game" button.
The blue player should type -ap (All Pick) or any other possible mode you would like to play in the first 15 seconds. After that you have 1:45 for picking all
