ok one I don't understand how to load the file onto the game. meaning where do I put the W3X files at. and second how do I get the load codes for each hero since they didn't come with the download. do I have to launch it for them to generate?
|In order to start playing the first act you will need to create a game from the map OrcXA1. The game will ask you for the difficulty and you will need to type either -easy, -normal, or -hard. Difficulty can not be changed! Any player can type this kinds of commands.|
|When one of your heroes goes into a transition area, a message will show up:|
When this message appears it means that game values have been saved in one of your Warcraft III/Logs, Warcraft III/Custom Map Data or Documents/Warcraft III/Custom Map Data folder, depending on your game version. After you do this, atleast one player needs to save the game depending on the map you are currently playing (eg. If it's Durotar you save as A1Durotar) from the F10 Menu.
Depending on the zone you are going to you will need create a game from that map. The maps are:
In the first screenshot, Rexxar is shown walking into the Orgrimmar Tunnels. After we save the game as A1Durotar, we quit the game and start a new one from the map OrcXA1Tunnels.
The game asks us to load Rexxar. Any player can copy and paste the code from the file named A1DurotarToTunnels.txt, that the last level generated. Then the game will ask for the codes for the other heroes. Finally the game will ask for "Additional Data". You copy the code just like the other codes. This code saves data like quests, gold, lumber and current difficulty.
Example of the A1DurotarToTunnels.txt file (do not copy codes from here, copy from your own file)
Tip: If your codes are on the same line (usually when you use default notepad) close the text file and open it with Notepad++, Windows Wordpad or Microsoft Word.
If you want to leave Orgrimmar Tunnels to go to Durotar, you need to go to the Transition area. Save the game as A1Tunnels by using the F10 Menu. Quit the game. Create a new game from your previous load "A1Durotar". Once loaded, the game asks you to either type -loadstart in order to start loading or -cancel if you want to go back to Durotar without loading the new data. After typing -loadstart, you will be asked to type codes for Rexxar, your other heroes and Additional Data. You get them from the file A1TunnelsToDurotar.txt.
|Some aspects were change to create a bit of flavor. Gazlowe is now a hero Tinker. Nazgrel is a mini-hero called "War Seer" (from the 2P Orc Campaign), though has the old abilities (Ensnare) and can't level up or gain stats. Vol'Jin is now a Troll Berserker.|
Some easter eggs on some maps. Drek'Thar has a new ability. The Rexxar Wyvern has one of his abilities replaced.
