      I assume you play War of the Ring. How did you get it to run? Even with a patch I got from moddb, it still won't launch.
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Myself I got it to run through compatibility mode
        - Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
        - Administrator mode (so the game can write save-files)

        Oddly enough after the first few launches it didn't need the compatibility mode enabled.
        I'm running it on Windows 10

        No luck. Maybe it's a windows 8 thing? I can't find anything about it online either. They always redirect me to war in the north.

      Hey, can I have the permission to edit your models? I only want to change the crest on the gondor troops shields ( I need a hammer ).
      Maybe you can do it yourself, if it's not that hard.
      Sorry for bothering.

      Hey Dave, I noticed in a thread a bit ago you were having problems with MiscData.txt and steep slopes in the new World Editor. I'm in the same boat. Have you been able to figure out how to get things working since then?
      Thanks.
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I have figured it out, but not in a satisfying way

        - Create a folder called "UI" (no quotations) in C > Program Files (x86) > Warcraft III

        - Paste the modified MiscData.txt in that folder

        For some reason, when I got the Wc3 update, it didn't work.
        When I took it out and put it back in, it did.

        I think the WC3 updates scratch out the custom line in the Regedit that allows WC3 to read 3rd party code

      Okie-dokie, Ralle has un-deleted my models, so the next few days will be spent updating the descriptions to credit the authors of the base skins - God I hope Blizzard fixes the editor soon ;_;

      Hi, Herrdave, what are you working next, the Bunch 'o Yankees or the Haradrim forces? :)
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Lately I've reworked all of the Rohan units (improved texture, better hair, and pauldrons on Theoden)

        I've been avoiding working on the Gondorian Knight because-- it's a boring model that makes me sad xD

        Mostly I've been waiting around for Blizzard to fix the World Editor, or at least re-break it so I can use my sharp cliffs again - been using that time playing GTA V: Online, LotrO, and Medieval II: Total War

        I /want/ to work on the Haradrim, but I need to crack out some concept art for the culture and armour first - also I need to decide if I'm going to use custom textures for their faces (given that there are like-- no black people in Warcraft by default x_x) or if I'm going to use the Bandit's face, like the existing Haradrim models here

        I think I've seen at least one in-game texture that looks somewhat black? Or at least darker than most other faces in W3, and I believe it's the campaign screen human footman, though I'm not sure if it really looks good. I think there was one model that used that face on a warrior with an open helmet, don't remember how was it called nor how it really looked like.

        @HerrDave - Have you ever come up to the idea of using multiple or single skin from the skin repository? I am really super sure that there a plenty of faces and armor textures you can use there. Well if omniskin isn't in the table anymore, maybe this... combo skins or multi-skins can help you.

        The culture of Haradrims are like Medieval Middle East with bandity themes. I even saw your list of planned haradrims somewhere deep in one of your profile comments.

      Hello! So I've noticed that you have some pretty sweet Warhammer Fantasy models done by you, mainly Empire (Reikland, Brettonia, etc). But I would like to ask you something and if you don't mind leave a suggestion or two. So I see you are a big fan of the Warhammer theme and War of the Ring, so here is the first suggestion, did you ever thought in give some love to the Ruinous Powers (Chaos) and Beastmen (Chaos aswell), I would like to see some well known units by fans an people that are all about Warhammer Fantasy units made by your hand (Daemons, Warriors, etc). And there's the second suggestion, have a chat with Gluma maybe you could work in something Warhammer related together. By the way HerrDave, I'm a big fan of your work! Keep it up! Take care dude!

        I'm interested in making more Chaos Knights, that's for sure - but when it comes to lighter armoured or even bestial monsters (Barbarians/Beastmen), that's where my skill dries up

        I'll be making Chaos Knights, Archaon, possibly Throgg, and I'll be rounding off the Empire with some basic swordsmen

        I tried my hand at the greenskins, but I can't make them look right ;_;

      Helloooooo!
      I feel sorry for you. Please, try do not have any stress. A "little vacation" will be very useful and pretty good for you.
      Thank you for revive some "dead games" and bring than to Warcraft III.
      Unfortunally, this website do not allow upload rips.
      Its sad and bad, of course, but is the law. We must follow that, because Is to a just cause.

      You works are so incredible! You have a great talent!
      Please,restore your mana in a Fountain. You are too tired, boy..

      I will pray for you!
      Good night!

        I've been talking directly with Ralle on Discord over the last two days

        Due to timezone differences, I only get about 30 minutes to talk to him before he has to sleep, or I do

        Solutions are being discussed, and according to him I do not have as many enemies in the Staff as I think I do

        (Still don't know who is with/against me)

        The good news - it's being talked about.
        The bad news - I'm not part of the full conversation.

        Glad they are in the talks and I will be gladder if they make a rightful and fair, decision. Well you are talking to the owner, I do hope things will get well since you two are having good conversaton bout this.

        Well, who the hell would want an enemy with a good modeller anyway? I presume they could be just trolls or miserable people who love to bash and criticize rather than make models to supply the hive.

        Yeah, like drones, who do nothing in the hive but buzz buzz buzz 'against' others. Well, people like me, will have no reason to be an enemy to people like you, Gluma, and some great modellers out here. People should love their suppliers on hive and keep them warm. :)

        @Battleborn stop this destructive paranoia against our staff. This has not happened before and it's all in the site's interest we solve it as legal as possible. We've not been approving ripped content for a long period of times except as resources in maps. It's much easier to take down maps if the site gets complaints from original authors than whole resources threads from various authors.
        For rips, or in this case, partial rips, there are other means of uploading which can be done here on the site, mind you.
