About the map
[​IMG]
[​IMG] EmberCraft is a total conversion isometric ARPG. It is heavily influenced by the infamous Torchlight 2 and Diablo 3 as inspiration for the dark atmosphere but takes place in an entirely new world with custom plot and storyline. The map will focus on enjoyable monster massacre and challenging & amazing boss fights. It revolves around a powerful random content generation system (for item stats, dungeon, shop, etc), to always deliver new experience on each go, and to provide incredible amount of item variations (6,000+ and counting).

We are aware the map still has a lot to work on. We are highly responsive and considerate toward user feedback. So keep feeding us suggestions, criticisms, and bug reports and help us to shape the world of EmberCraft!

Storyline

The world was once a peaceful place. That's until bizarre unidentified beasts began to invade and wreak havoc everywhere. They seemingly appear out of nowhere, as if they came from other reality. After years of calamity with no resolution, a mysterious figure came to us and offered a solution. He claimed to be able to facilitate teleportation across multiple realms. We then called him The Mercenary, for a reason. He avouched that the very same phenomenon is also occurring in other worlds simultaneously and asked for cooperation to resolve the nodus. He then told us everything, about the Netherflame and The False Goddess, the root of this chaos... [​IMG]
[​IMG]
Verraje, the false goddess, is a self-proclaimed deity who desires chaos and total destruction. To achieve her ambition, she created the Netherflame, undying dark flame, to disrupt the balance in nature by uncontrollably producing vicious monsters all across the multiverse, creating endless conflicts, with the ultimate goal to wipe out all kind of life form and send everything back to nothingness. After years of struggle, we finally found a way to reach the celestial palace and we started numerous clashes with the goddess. But many strong heroes have fallen under her otherworldly might...

But it was not all in vain. We noticed that the beasts stopped appearing when we were clashing against the goddess. We then speculate that the Netherflame, the once thought eternal and infinite, can be extinguished by defeating the goddess...
[​IMG] [​IMG]
[​IMG] Being aware of the struggle, the goddess started to gave birth to some of the most frightening beasts in existence from her own flesh and blood. They guard every gateway to the sacred palace. Since then, no one has ever managed to reach the palace. Those guardian beasts are frighteningly powerful. But we, yet again, speculate that for her to achieve such feat, it must have weakened her in some way. This can be our chance to defeat her and put an end to this centuries-long calamity.

We have lost many times and many lives. But we can not afford to give up after all the sacrifice of our ancestors and many great heroes. We need the bravest warriors like you to continue our struggle and keep fighting in the front line. Our fate, our world's fate, now lies in your hands, warrior.

    The things you made with this map are simply amazing, I can't wait for the polished version! I really hope you won't get discouraged by the enormousness of this project. Keep up the great work with this masterpiece of wc3 RPG's!

    Thanks for the comment and support!
    I won't be discouraged by its size or anything else. But still, this is just a hobby project that I will work on once in a while when I have time for it. :)

    Embercraft is back in development! For the next update I will start to make the interiors for buildings. I will also focus to add plenty of item variations for the knight & archer class for up to level 25. I also expect to add skills for the knight's 3rd sub-class and for all archer sub-classes as well. Stay tuned!


    Edit:
    I just uploaded new screenshots. And the thread got bumped ._.

    I downloaded it, when I tried to start it in patch 1.29 it didn't work, there were no player slots, when I try to choose another map then EmberCraft, it shows the other map's player slots, I tried running it on an older version, it started normally.
    EDIT: after it started, I chose a knight, but I couldn't move, tried f1 and still nothing.

    Did you read the instruction? You must calibrate your number keys first (by typing "-c", then just follow further instructions). ;)
    Thanks for the information!


    EDIT:
    Just to avoid confusion, @everyone: the map has not been updated yet. The thread just got bumped after I uploaded new screenshots. That was my bad.

    So when can we expect a Mage/Necromancer type of character? I want to have a huge army to follow me around and killing things.

    Making this takes some of my precious times. But just to display some activity and to show that the project still progresses rapidly, here is a video showcasing a new ability for the Dark Knight, named Spectral Vortex.


    Next update is scheduled at 5th May, or maybe 6th. And it will be a massive update! So stay tuned!

    Not currently, due to the use of memory hack. In the next update I will try to remove mouse tracking (memory hack) and use native wc3 control instead and see what people think about that. I'm also kinda tired of clueless people badmouthing and calling this map a hack, whereas only 0,1% part of this map requires hack. It's time to prove that this map was made possible by me, not memory hack. Sorry if I talk too much.

    New version is up!
    This is one of the biggest update so far. Includes tons of improvements, new contents, bug fixes, etc etc. Find the full list in the main post.

    One thing I want to underline is that now the map doesn't use memory hack by default. But I will also provide another version of the map so called "Combat Enhanced (CE)" version which still retains the mouse tracker system. This means that the default version of the map is now compatible with patch 1.29 and all other patches.

    Anyway, it was a very long run. Enjoy!

    When saving - saved is displayed.

    However, "load" still does not work.

    It still comes out as an empty slot.

    That's strange. If it's printed then the whole saving operation runs successfully. Would you be so kind to test the save/load system using this version: EmberCraft v0.8.225 - Warcraft 3 Maps - Epic War.com It was expected to work on 1.28 but didn't work for earlier patches. Maybe I messed something after that update.
