You can't open the maps made on 1.31 using the older World Editor.
Older World Editor doesn't read all latest maps because the older map will now contains all features that are present on 1.31's WE such as improved JASS.
Same thing goes for Reforged.

no its not made, its from 1.20+ version, then i opened it on 1.31 and accidentally 'saved' it instead of save as

so there's no way reverting that back?

How do you change the file type? base on the photo, these 2 are one, but can be opened in 1.31 ver, i need to know if it can by using tools whatsever in the hopes to revert my old map in 1.27 ver

Try this
You should ask Drake53 for more downgrade versions.

Given the description, as far as I am aware the only difference (and what is shown in the error screenshot) would be war3map.w3i.
I made a small downgrader for someone that asked - not many features or any fancy options, but I believe it should make this openable in old patches.
If it fixes the map information file and some other file becomes the new reason it won't open, post it here and I'll probably add it.

I'll post here for future reference - you saved your map with Reforged (1.32), not 1.31. I am not sure why you thought it's 1.31 🤔
As it says, my code currently doesn't support Reforged triggers, so I guess first run it in the map adapter to do 1.32->1.31 and then in my code for 1.31->1.27 or whatever? sounds somewhat sketchy, but might work.
