    That will be the final boss of Act 3 after the puzzle. Act 4 gonna have the main bad guy of course, but I plan to orientate it slightly different way, I'll see how it goes.

    There will be one puzzle when you must solve it as well as fight and watch out for one guy not to die, quite extreme, but it is not that hard to solve I hope.

    I have a system for anti-cheat, it may disable god mode and resources cheat, but resources anti-cheat is lacking, it can be avoided if the concept how it works is known, yet map will be open, so more motivated players might disable it, hah.

    Cheating with unlimited mana may also not help, because all mana loss is triggered and not being taken directly from spell, except for some items.

    Thanks.

    I'll take my time for sure, no rush, because of it quality suffers really much, talking from my own experience. And yeah, this spring I hope to release it. Its size gonna reach 200 MB though.

    It would not be protected. Free for all to mod, check ad do whatever they wish. This is modding community after all, not some kind of patented business. :)

    No worries, it will take me only few minutes to upload.

    I've been editing some skins for allies, these guys gonna stand as an ally in the last battle, looks big, strong and would serve well as a back up. There will be 5 of them.

    Looks epic and I expect a pretty much hard battle with them knowing you always make enjoyable battles.

    Anyways, I did notice that your avatar is the same with the Guardians, am I right?

    Haha, thanks. :ogre_hurrhurr:
    My avatar picture is from other skin edit, I have posted it some pages ago, it gonna bring up one of the last quest. Oh and I am almost done with Act 3, just few lines to record and then I'll grab a cinematic full of both, talk and action, perhaps I may even upload it on youtube, not sure yet.

    I will use JNPG once doodad limit is reached, but I still have 300 doodads to place before JNPG. I use GUI only, because I have no experience with Jass or vJass. I don't need jass, because so far I achieve everything I want with GUI only.

    JASS is a big perk obisously. However I feel like its more relaxing to use GUI. (jass got odd limits compared to modern programing languages anyway)

    it wont affect a single player map anyway unless you got a crappy computer from 1990

    You know, it's obvious that this is a single map:> Hence the doodads limit!
