    Which patch of the game are you trying to hook up? That point of data might help to say what's going wrong

    Blender 2.83 MDL/MDX importer

    @ABLAGOOD Go to the Github page of this tool, GitHub - tw1lac/Blender_WarCraft-3: 2.8x port of PavelBlend's mdx-importer. For both .mdl and .mdx, and change the branch to one of the 2.79 ones. Do also note that old Blender will only have older versions of almost all plugins, so I'd recommend...

    Quenching Mod (Latest v1.6)

    If you had legal access to ROC, that same CD-key is, servers permitting, completely usable to grant you 1.32+ access if you just link it to your account. Not too much reason to give Blizzard more money

    Retera Model Studio Reforged Hack

    The latest 0.4 is in the main thread of Retera's Model Studio last I checked. This thread should probably be locked and amended to include this, to prevent confusion. 0.5 betas are only availabe from the RMS discord server

    Reset Editor Registry

    I've never had pre-1.31 fail to open before while 1.31 could, so it could be one of the setings I've not messed with enough to cause incompatibility, if anyone encountering that issue could export their WorldEdit folder as a .reg that might be useful to narrow down to a single or a couple of keys

    Reset Editor Registry

    The only key that actually prevents pre-1.32 World editors from starting is "Tool Windows". Zero other keys have to be changed for that. For the game itself the situation is a bit different: The user data directory has to follow an outdated format only in 1.28 and only in 1.26 would you need to...

    HiveWE - World Editor 0.6

    Error 32 means the game files are in use by another program in a manner HiveWE couldn't interact with. Close Vanilla WE and the game itself before opening HiveWE 0.6

    WC3 Download Archive (1.00 - 1.31.1 + BETA & DEMO)

    Requiring cracks to play it renders the beta useless to many, not to mention it would likely be the cracks inducing more instability. I don't remember if the non-cracked version supposedly even allowed you to pick Night elf and undead. That brings me back to the message I wrote earlier, "play"...

    WC3 Download Archive (1.00 - 1.31.1 + BETA & DEMO)

    How does one go about playing that beta multiplayer? Are there any servers for it still up?

    WC3 Download Archive (1.00 - 1.31.1 + BETA & DEMO)

    Play is a strong word ;) Both the beta and the demo are very limited but this post's title correctly says you can download them, doesn't bind itself to the notion of being able to play them :p

    WC3 Download Archive (1.00 - 1.31.1 + BETA & DEMO)

    Remove it, but then let the game install it again, this time properly. Bonjour is what the game uses for LAN so not even Radmin can magically go around it :p Since 1.31.1 backup file posts are being linked, here's mine.
  13. BogdanW3

    WC3 Download Archive (1.00 - 1.31.1 + BETA & DEMO)

    Due to that error message, I can assume Bonjour was already installed, but it's currently in a broken state either due to its service being disabled or an attempt at removing it. Uninstall it completely from the "add or remove programs" if it's in there, then delete the C:\Program...

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    1.26 doesn't work only due to "video" settings registry keys, but I do not recommend even using it :p
  15. BogdanW3

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    That registry setup will not work with 1.28 due to the save games folder not matching in format (proper slashes instead of backslashes). I have 6-10 Warcraft 3 versions and, other than 1.26 in fullscreen mode, they all work
  16. BogdanW3

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    There is never a good reason to delete game files. They do not interfere with each other so deleting them is useless. Delete registry keys if you're going to an older version but that's it.

    Local files

    Local files do also work in the World Editor, which is how the old way to change terrain pathing by modifying terrain.slk works, but interacting with 3rd party hacks like JNGP is not in the scope of this tutorial.

    The file is not an MDX model! error

    The file just not being a MDX model is probably the correct diagnosis, but what it actually is is more interesting, send one of those files as an example.

    Generate Minimap from a Map File

    Both the minimap itself and the minimap preview images are stored inside the map archive. The minimap itself is war3mapMap and the preview is war3mapPreview. The minimap itself is most likely going to be a blp so you'll need to parse that, but the preview is most likely going to be tga...

    Warcraft 3 World Editor 1.31.1.12164 is crashing.

    To preserve more user settings, don't delete the whole WorldEdit folder, delete only the "Tool Windows" key inside, other keys will not cause World Editor to crash.

    Retera's Model Studio

    In 0.04, both of the things you experienced are intended: the first popup that has buttons to "Add CASC", "Add MPQ" and such is the button where you select which Warcraft 3 data to use (These will already be selected properly on first opening of the tool for most). The non-rotatable views are...

    How to: Warcraft 3 Reforged Facial Expressions

    Good tutorial, straight to the point and gives examples from the game itself. Things I have to add is that it's also possible to define one curve text inside another: ["Happy" type=lt easein=0.25 easeout=1.5 easeout=2.0 v2=0.6 v3=0.0]Welcome, Prince Arthas. The men and I are ["Angry" type=lt...

    I believe I misclicked and never looked back to rectify this, it works for most of the things it tries to do.

    War3 Model Editor

    The tool will look for a Warcraft 3 installation first by using registry, reading from HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Blizzard Entertainment\Warcraft III\InstallPath. If it doesn't get files from there or can't read it, it will try to search the current folder.

    Retera Model Studio Reforged Hack

    @Dr Super Good At the expense of probably sounding overkill, could you instead have conditional logic connected to the .build.info or product.db? Or maybe require user to specify whether they want to use the old or new verification and then RMS can be required to deduce on its own?

    Retera Model Studio Reforged Hack

    @Dr Super Good Is there a version of JCASC that allows both old and new TVFS formats or is the new one not intended to work with for example 1.31.1?

    Retera Model Studio Reforged Hack

    @Svopyr Do not use this version anymore, use the download from the official post as it had been updated to support the latest 1.32 almost as soon as it came out (1.32.10 causes the error you have in old versions and the latest download in the official post fixes this).

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    First off, if you were ever able to install from the site, the keys are present in your games section: https://account.blizzard.com/games, which will allow you to just get the cd-keys needed. Second off, Battle.net does not work because it only ever accepts the latest version, I do not think...

    There has to be a space before -graphicsapi, like with any other argument you'd send to an application

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    I don't remember the current state in 1.32.10.X but you can still use the opengl one at least afaik, but probably not the direct3d versions older than 11
  34. BogdanW3

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    This is the 1.31.1 patch files thread so I provided arguments accordingly. The graphicsapi arguments you listed are also mostly correct but if I remember correctly it's not graphicsapi OpenGL2 but just graphicsapi OpenGL for opengl in 1.31, you can also get the arguments changes from 1.31+ in...

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    For the newer versions (1.29+), there are multiple ways to change the windowmode: specifying arguments when launching the game: for 1.31+ -windowmode windowed, -windowmode windowedfullscreen, or -windowmode fullscreen, pressing alt+enter (only switches between windowed and windowedfullscreen)...

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    It's better that that Battle.net is disabled because you won't accidentally update to 1.32 which defeats the purpose of these backup files, and the Bonjour installation message is fully unconnected to the Battle.net - you should install Bonjour because that's just the system 1.30+ uses for Local...

    Retera's Model Studio

    Magos's War3ModelEditor hasn't been updated in years, so it can't support HD, or even v1000 SD, models. The first thing you can try is to delete RMS and get the latest version (this error should be fixed in one of the builds). In case that doesn't work, try making the folder...

    Ladik's MPQ Editor

    W3M and W3X used to have just a smallest bit of data before the MPQ part before (just like you can have an image before a zip file, a lot of tech-ish videos about it) but after 1.32 they are completely identical.

    Ladik's MPQ Editor

    All maps, both Blizzard's and user-made, are only playable when in the w3m or w3x archives, both of which are MPQs. User data has been moved out of the main game folder way back in 1.28 because what up to 1.27 did is bad practice and requires more permissions to be granted to the game. As for...

    Ladik's MPQ Editor

    Maps are still MPQs, Custom campaigns were and will probably still be MPQ files. Blizzard launcher itself still uses MPQs. Even if none of the previous statements were true, old Warcraft 3 versions would still warrant having a good MPQ editor.

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    About the language fix being downloaded as an MP3 file, blame Google. It thinks it's an audio file so you will have to manually rename it so that its extension is .reg (it's almost certainly something else at the moment)

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    You could always get all the Blizzard's maps, even campaign ones, out of the game using MPQ Editor up to 1.29.2 and CASC viewer after 1.30.0

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    I probably missed both the post and the person you're helping, but registry won't interfere between versions, not ever for the game itself and not until 1.32 for the World Editor. I regularly run 1.31.1 then 1.26 to test things and I never have to change registry for that

    Patch 1.31.1 Backup Files

    For real LAN, router should not be involved unless it's blocking local communication between devices, which is rare but also a possible option. For fake LAN like Hamachi or Radmin (and possibly GameRanger), make sure both that you have forwarded the correct ports and that you don't have...

    HiveWE - World Editor 0.6

    Is your Warcraft 3 version correct for the current version of HiveWE? 0.6 works on 1.31, so if you plan to use it with 1.32, you'd have to build it yourself from the sourcecode on Github. It's not too hard to do and you will also get newer features like an almost-complete Object Editor

    Import guide is outdated

    This thread is about the "How to import this model" auto-generated page below every model file. Every external texture the model uses will have all the data generated correctly (thanks for fixing that) but the images generated are not applicable to the 1.32 World Editor. This has already...

    Frustrating Sound Bug - Sound Files not working on certain units.

    I'll bring over what I've discovered on this topic for now in the form of a link to the thread that's referenced in the original post. Unit Sound Sets not working for certain models I still think it's caused by soundsets for units with FAFX requiring the FAFX to be present as I haven't seen...
