There is a buildt-in MPQ Browser that allows you to browse any MPQ archive, which also includes Warcraft 3 map files (.w3m and .w3x). The MPQ Browser has been optimized for speed and is very fast to load and use. The Browser is customizable so you can add/remove your own icons and filters.

    This application has failed to start because d3dx9_35.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem..

    I never posted here, even though I am using this tool for years.

    While I mostly model in notepad++, this tool helped me a great deal with my work, be it by showing me possible flags for particle emitters or by "explaining" me things I did not understand. And, of course, by testing most things without using the WE.

    When you know all the bugs, like it doesn't convert correctly when you have certain material settings or it doesn't show the tail of particle emitters and whatsoever, this is a really useful tool, maybe the most important for my work with WC3.

    Thanks, Magos!

    many people posting in this thread suffer from heavy reading disorder
    you appear to be one of them
    http://www.hiveworkshop.com/posts/1784002/

    and someone will ask it again and is to stupid to read it on the previous pages:

    WORKS ON WINDOWS 7

    IF YOU GET AN ERROR YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD d3dx9_35.dll AND PUT IT IN THE SAME FOLDER


    placing the dll in the system32 folder should work, too
    if you got other dll missing errors download them as well
    if it still does not work make sure you downloaded directx already
