How to import 'Lizardman rider (outdated)'

Hello

This is an automatically generated tutorial. It will guide you through the process of importing the model Lizardman rider (outdated) of the bundle Lizardman Hunter. Please note that all the screenshots in this tutorial were made using a Macintosh, however it should be no problem to interpret what is equivalent on a Microsoft Windows or Linux machine.

Extract and Access

I am assuming that you have already downloaded the file Lizardman Hunter.zip and know where it is located on your hard drive. The file is compressed as a zip archive. Most modern operating systems allow you to unzip the archive by double clicking it and dragging out the contents to the desktop (or any other place).

When you have extracted the archive, it should look like this:

Lizardman Hunter
liz_rider13w.mdx
liz_armor.blp

Open World Editor and click Module -> Import Manager:

This is the Import Manager. From here you can add and remove custom files from your map file:

Importing liz_rider13w.mdx

Now Click the "Import File" Button:

Next select 'liz_rider13w.mdx' in the folder which you extracted from the zip archive:

Lizardman Hunter
liz_rider13w.mdx
liz_armor.blp

The file has been properly added to the map archive:

liz_rider13w.mdx
Model
181
war3mapimported/liz_rider13w.mdx

Done, you have imported the file liz_rider13w.mdx.

Importing liz_armor.blp

Now Click the "Import File" Button:

Next select 'liz_armor.blp' in the folder which you extracted from the zip archive:

Lizardman Hunter
liz_rider13w.mdx
liz_armor.blp

As you see, the field "Full Path" starts with something like "war3mapimported/". But most models do not look for their skins in that directory. The skins need to be in a specific location in order for the model to find them. Therefore, you will have to change the "Full Path" to what the model looks for. You can find the skins' paths in the readme.txt and also on this page.

liz_rider13w.mdx
Model
181
war3mapimported/liz_rider13w.mdx
liz_armor.blp
Image / Texture
55
war3mapimported/liz_armor.blp

Double-click the file liz_armor.blp:

liz_armor.blp
Image / Texture
55
war3mapimported/liz_armor.blp

Tick the box "Use Custom Path" and type in the correct path:

liz_armor.blp
Image / Texture
55
liz_armor.blp

The file has been properly added to the map archive:

liz_rider13w.mdx
Model
181
war3mapimported/liz_rider13w.mdx
liz_armor.blp
Image / Texture
55
liz_armor.blp

Done, you have imported the file liz_armor.blp.

You're done

You have now imported your model. Don't be afraid when you place the object and it appears to be a purple cube. Just close the map, re-open it and it will look fine in the World Editor.

If you did exactly as this guide told you and it did not work properly. Please make a thread in the Modeling & Animation Forum containing the following:

  • Link to the model and the tutorial
  • Precise description of what does not work
  • The map you tried to import it to (with the model imported)
And we will do what we can to help you.
