    I can't use JASS at all, then I basically don't know if what I'm asking is possible.

    Wouldn't it be nice if using JASS we make a TFT melee map which works in ROC? I mean, is it possible to make a working TFT melee map using JASS and the world editor of ROC?
    If so, we should, for those poor guys who can't afford the expansion.

    It would be nice even if we succeed in making a rough version of the expansion...

    I don't think that it should be that hard at all. Just copy/paste all of the units (or make new ones). It sould be easy to make identical. Blizzard might object. . . (lol)

    The part of it could be done but it would take ages and it wouldn't be a fun game to play. I suggest you to forget about this idea for the sake of your sanity.

    Too true. If they are cheap/poor. . . I think that there is nothing we can do to help them without making ourselves cheap/poor.

    It was a neat idea though.

    I'm sure, if they have enough money for a computer, they can buy TFT for 15 dollars in a bargain bin, and if not, there are other ways of getting things like that. My point is, this is pointless.

    Importing Unit Model Using Reign of Chaos

    First read the thread... it's posted very long ago when I was a complete noob (notice my signature). You know that there's noticed the WinMPQ browser (download it from Tools section). So you'll need to create your TFT map, or take already existing one, and then create an empty RoC map (you can create TXT file and change its name extension to .. erhm.. pff.. w3m (I got it!)). Then you open any TFT map with WinMPQ and drag all files from there into your RoC map. The only problem is that you can't use TFT models in Reign of Chaos, but it's very easy to solve: you open the War3.mpq with WinMPQ and find the model name you need, then you drag that model, import into your TFT map before you enchant the RoC map, then set the some unit's model to that imported file. GL

    And no tricks with the outminding JASS!!
