    I'd certainly consider it. I'm also looking at jumping to Unity though; especially given all the bugs. My campaign is being play tested on 1.31 or whatever, but I can't imagine the bugs I'll have to deal with when I update to Reforged.

    Interesting. I did the reverse; the capital ships stayed still and the players controlled the fighters. Anyway, if you want a bunch of Star Wars models I have a ton saved in my Battle for Tatooine map. Let me know; I can get you an unprotected version.

    Hi Dave! I saw in your post a reference to a Star Wars map you were developing that had space combat in it. I made one earlier (Battle for Tatooine) that made use of some star wars models and combat. I was wondering if you have publicized anything about your map? I'd love to get a look at...

    [Campaign] Flight of the Snow Witch

    Thanks, Tulee! The cover art is mostly by PD. Breeding-Black. She's amazing; did a bunch of work for the RPG Talislanta. The campaign is pretty large at this point. It's done though; going through playtesting now. There are some bugs with custom music (they work on my computer, but not...

    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...

    Simple fix for SpiritLinkTarget

    Hello! In the latest series of patches, Blizzard apparently moved an internal model causing JetFangInferno's haste.mdx model to not work (see his upload here: SpiritLinkTarget) The problem is that the model references GenericGlow2_mip1 but this was renamed to GenericGlow2.blp in the latest...

    Could someone please unlock my Map Development post?

    Hi there, Deepstrasz has magically fixed a crippling bug in my campaign, and I now have a version ready to playtest. I'd like to put a call out for play-testers on my Map Development thread found here: [Campaign] - Flight of the Snow Witch As can be seen, my problem is the "Thread Status...

    [General] Icons appear scrambled in my campaign - but fix when I reload

    Good news: there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with my map. The glitchy shadows and texture-swapping appears on other maps too, so the problem is either with my WC3 program or my computer or some interaction. I suppose I could try a reinstall and so on to see if it fixes the issue. My...

    [General] Icons appear scrambled in my campaign - but fix when I reload

    I was using x86 -64. Since you recommended that, I changed to just x86. So far it's been much improved. I may have seen one scrambled icon...maybe I just used the other version. It's much improved though. I do still have an issue with shadows or something. During cinematics I sometimes...

    SpiritLinkTarget

    I'm having trouble getting this working in the new Editor. I had it in my campaign for years without trouble, but now it doesn't show up. I made a test map and attached it to the overhead of a paladin, and I couldn't see it there either. Can anyone confirm that this still works? EDIT: The...

    [General] Icons appear scrambled in my campaign - but fix when I reload

    Update: The icons are not being scrambled, but rather some textures are being substituted for other textures. Textures that are being overwritten so far include: - weapon and armor icons - item icons (i.e. those in the Hero's inventory) - custom aura attached to a unit - the death textures...

    [General] Icons appear scrambled in my campaign - but fix when I reload

    I've recently updated my campaign so I can edit it in the newest version of the editor (thanks Deepstrasz!). I have a bug that shows up sometimes. Basically, certain textures in the game sometimes appear fuzzy or scrambled. Once it was a custom aura attached to a hero unit (it looked like a...

    It wasn't working in my map, and didn't work in a custom test map either. EDIT: My bad! I think I had an older version of it in my campaign. The newer one works. Sorry! + rep

    How to get access to the patch 1.30.4 editor?

    Wow, you guys work fast, thanks so much! I am now able to open the campaign file at least, but unfortunately I can't seem to open any of the maps in the campaign to edit them! When I try to edit any of the maps it says: "Unable to load file '7KTest.w3x" and "Main map file could not be...

    How to get access to the patch 1.30.4 editor?

    The new patch has destroyed my campaign. It won't even open in the new editor. I posted this on the patch discussion, but no one else seems to be having the problem, so I don't anticipate a rapid fix. I figure the best way to keep working on it is to get the 1.30.4 Editor. I tried dowloading...

    Patch 1.31.1 Live Update

    The new patch prevents me loading my campaign at all. The WE just crashes. Weirdly, the campaign does play but I can't edit it at all. Just to be clear: 1. If I open WC3 and click Single Player, then Custom Campaign, etc., I can start the campaign and play it. 2. If I open WC3 World Editor...

    Public Test Realm 1.31.1

    Public Test Realm 1.31.1

    My campaigns (both the corrupted and uncorrupted backups) won't open. I get this error: B1A8E629-9603-485A-A2AE-322226DFEE83 I could open the dwarf campaign though. Should I panic yet? EDIT: I should point out that the campaign plays. I can play the campaign, but I can't open it in the...

    Patch 1.31 announced

    I have. It was really challenging, and lags like crazy on a busy map... but I managed to make a mini-game where the water you are sailing in slowly drains away (i.e. I raise the ground up over the water line so it looks like the water is draining). You can see it here in my trailer: EDIT...

    Free Movie Maker program

    The new patch has removed my ability to edit my maps, so I want to get to work on a new trailer for my campaign based on videos I've already recorded. Can anyone recommend a free movie maker program? I used to use Microsoft's Movie Maker, which worked fine, but it does not appear free...

    Patch 1.31 announced

    Make a copy of your map. Then open it, look at the data. Then save it, and look around the data again. I've found that the act of saving the file is what scrambled my campaign. Of course...I saved it, so now it's saved scrambled.

    Patch 1.31 announced

    Very weird. I checked my backup files (which were only a couple days old) and they all work fine. I'm wondering if I screwed it up by downloading the new patch while my editor was open. Remixer, was your map open when you downloaded the new one? I tried restarting my computer...no luck, it's...

    Patch 1.31 announced

    ***WARNING*** Make backups of your maps before you save them! Saving under the new patch may scramble your Object Data strings. The new patch has butchered the campaign data in my campaign. For example, it erased all the proper names of one hero. A bunch of strings are misplaced, e.g. one...

    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...

    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.

    Warcraft III - Patch 1.29.1

    I've discovered a bug/feature of the new patch that is going to be a big problem for me. I'm running version: 1.29.19160. I'm using a custom UI that worked fine before, but now looks like this: Note that the bricks are not part of the custom UI of course. The custom UI is there in its...

    [General] Making an item not for sale until 5 minutes after building built

    Sorry, Chaosium, I should have been more clear. The replenish interval was set at 5 minutes. It works - in that when I buy all the items it will replenish at that rate.

    [General] Making an item not for sale until 5 minutes after building built

    I have a merchant building that earns a profit for the player. I made an item called "recover profits" which - when purchased, gives the player 50 gold. Here's what I want: the merchant building should accrue this item every 5 minutes up to a maximum of 5. In other words, if you build the...

    my map crashes after saving

    Do you ever use the action that says "Pan as necessary to <point>"? You can go to your object editor and look at "functions" tab. See if you use that action and change it. If it's crashing in multiple player but not single player, that sounds like it might be a de-synch. That can happen with...

    my map crashes after saving

    There is a trigger that can create a lightning effect. If you were using it, you would know it. So let's rule that one out. My question is this...when does the game crash? Does it crash when you save it? Does it crash when you load the game? Does it crash while you are playing but only...

    my map crashes after saving

    The only time I noticed a crash-only-after-save bug was when I was working with custom lightning (set via triggers). Are you using lightning effects? I don't mean spells like chain lightning, I mean triggers that create a lightning effect. On second thought, I believe I had problems with a...

    [General] Ambient background music in campaign loading screen

    The campaign editor allows me to play a sound file for "Ambient Sound" during the campaign loading screen. I put a music file there, and the music plays fine. The problem is that some Blizzard background music is also playing (maybe the human music; I'm not sure). Is there a way to get only...
