IRVINE, Calif. - June 06, 2005 - Blizzard Entertainment® today announced that World of Warcraft®, its massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), has officially launched in China. Players in China can now download the game, create accounts and experience the epic adventure of the Warcraft® series in an immersive and continually evolving online environment. The commercial launch of World of Warcraft follows a highly successful open beta period in China during which the game reached a peak concurrency - the total number of subscribers playing simultaneously - of more than 500,000 players.

"It has always been a goal at Blizzard to become a major developer and publisher for the Chinese gaming market," said Mike Morhaime, president and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment. "We feel that China offers a huge and eager audience and it is poised to become the next great region in gaming. We are simply thrilled to be bringing World of Warcraft to this great country. With fully localized content, a regional network infrastructure, and local, around-the-clock customer support, we believe that World of Warcraft will provide Chinese gamers with an unparalleled game experience."

To provide players with an incomparable level of service, Blizzard Entertainment has partnered with local publisher The9, who it believes to be the most talented MMO operator in China. The9 will help operate and manage World of Warcraft in China, including all aspects of support. The9's dedicated team, composed entirely of Chinese management and staff, will serve as an integral part of the game's development and customer service efforts. They will assist in the synchronization of content updates, the delivery of player feedback to the developers, and will help ensure accurate localization to keep the game relevant and tailored to Chinese gamers. Furthermore, this local team will offer 24-hour support year around, with direct game master (GM) support and local call-center representatives dedicated to helping players with questions regarding gameplay and/or technical issues.

To deliver top-notch customer support and maintain a safe and secure service, Blizzard and The9 have implemented an authorization CD-key system for the official launch of World of Warcraft. This system will help protect the game from malicious hack programs that could otherwise affect players' enjoyment of the game.

Only players who have purchased an authorized CD key will be able to activate their accounts and enter the game. Each CD key costs 30 Yuan/RMB and can be purchased with a World of Warcraft Points Card. Point Cards also cost 30 Yuan/RMB and can be used at a rate of 9 points per hour (0.45 Yuan/hour) to play World of Warcraft.

#include <alloc.h>

#include <stdlib.h>



void *malloc(int size);


说明:malloc 向系统申请分配指定size个字节的内存空间。返回类型是 void* 类型。void* 表示未确定类型的指针。C,C++规定,void* 类型可以强制转换为任何其它类型的指针。


从函数声明上可以看出。malloc new 至少有两个不同: new 返回指定类型的指针,并且可以自动计算所需要大小。比如:


int *p;


p = new int; //返回类型为int* 类型(整数型指针),分配大小为 sizeof(int);



int* parr;


parr = new int [100];  //返回类型为 int* 类型(整数型指针),分配大小为 sizeof(int) * 100;


malloc 则必须由我们计算要字节数,并且在返回后强行转换为实际类型的指针。


int* p;


p = (int *)  malloc (sizeof(int));


第一、malloc 函数返回的是 void * 类型,如果你写成:p = malloc (sizeof(int)); 则程序无法通过编译,报错:“不能将 void* 赋值给 int * 类型变量”。所以必须通过 (int *) 来将强制转换。

第二、函数的实参为 sizeof(int) ,用于指明一个整型数据需要的大小。如果你写成:


int* p = (int *) malloc (1);



malloc 也可以达到 new [] 的效果,申请出一段连续的内存,方法无非是指定你所需要内存大小。




int* p = (int *) malloc ( sizeof(int) * 100 ); //分配可以放得下100个整数的内存空间。


另外有一点不能直接看出的区别是,malloc 只管分配内存,并不能对所得的内存进行初始化,所以得到的一片新内存中,其值将是随机的。
