      I would be interested in doing some play testing for FotSW this weekend if I can. What version of the game do I need to use?

        Great, thanks! It's running on the current version. So far a play tester has found his WC3 game crashing on map 1 because of a custom music file. It doesn't make mine crash though, so I'd be interested to see the outcome.

        Anyway, the campaign is also not locked, so you can disable the music or whatever as needed.

      Good news. I'm waiting for it.
      Also edited my post there.

      To fix the imported sound datas you need to delete all meta datas from the sound datas (also the preview picture of the sound datas). In order to do that you need a program to open the sound datas and remove the meta datas and the picture. In the forum thread about bugs in the patch 1.30 (you can find it with google) a user posted the links for the required program to remove the metadatas from the sound datas. He posted two links for two programs that can be used for that. You can download the programs for free. I just looked up what the programs names are...: It's "Audacity" and "Mp3tag". You can simply use google to download them free. The other game intern sound datas of Blizzard are mostly broken now and don't work in many cases. They even don't work in their own campaign. But they will fix this bug in the next patch. I wish you much success, greetings!

        Thanks so much, Zordrak!

        That might have accounted for some of my data, but a lot of these don't seem to have meta-data. I had problems with the internal Blizz sounds (like you mentioned). I suppose I'll just have to wait until the next path to fix this stuff up.

        The weirdest thing is watching the cinematics when the sounds play instantly. Everyone talks for .5 seconds and the whole things jumps ahead.

        Don't forget to remove the preview pictures from the mp3 sounds. You can use the programs i mentioned for that.

      Hey mate, I'm wondering if Flight of the Snow Witch is still in production. That trailer serves as a lot of inspiration for me. Good luck. Hope all is well.

        Absolutely. It's staled briefly while I return to America to a new job. I'm doing job training and prep now, and buying a house. Realistically, it probably won't be ready until Dec.

        I was finishing the final tweaks when the new patch came and butchered the UI and the multiboards.

      Hi Darwin, I see you are from Australia. We have got a group of older people who play war3 every night (our bot is based in australia for ping/delay related reasons). We normally play 10pm-11 pm weekdays and weekends. (Eastern AUS time, not WA time). If you are interested, whisper me on my account tulee@uswest
      If you do not have battlenet, you can still connect to our bot via eurobattle (the free one), it would just be more complicated to contact us unless you have our discord, which we use to post game names and number of people (we normally play dota1 semi competitively + other custom maps, but since we got a lot of people with families who don't have time to play new custom maps, dota1 is normally what we play the most). If you want to come along and play with us, let me know. There are not many AUS players left in war3 since boredaussie shutdown.

      Hi Darwin. I'm working on Star Wars maps for myself and I was wondering how you'd get that TIE fighter model and that AT-AT walker model. Can I still get them or they were taken out of Hive?

      You mean, you've used a a Game Cache that triggers when players Save and Load the game? I thought of that too but it seems harder to do than what came up to my mind this morning which is using invisible unis that cast either life/mana drain on them or finger of death/chain lightning. I'll see if I can do it my way first. Your way is the best I think but this trigger I'm working on has so many conditions. For instance if some items are in a said place the lightning activates between them and if they are not in said place some parts of the lightning must fall.
      Thanks for letting me know of your idea, anyways!

      Hello. How did you fix your lightning crash after loading a game? I have the same problem and I don't really know how to fix it yet. Will you please tell me?
