at the end of map three after i pick a dragon it goes through the cinimatic that goes into a tunnle and then i am at the RoTDS main menu and there is no 4th mission available, is there a way around this bug so i might not hafta wait for the patch
Strange... it didn't happen to me. What dragon did you take? I tested them all except the blue one (for skills) and in the end chose Malgoros. he is the best especially the storm stuff. Perhaps a little overpowered. And Sand of Ages is just an AoE Cripple.
There is nothing you can do but wait for Darky to release a new update. I personally tried to fix this bug but failed. Dunno how and where he did what he did. He is responsible for all the triggers and so, I cannot mess with them.
could we try using the cgeat to pick what mission your on or dose it only work for warcraft yo i think darky28 ant coming back any more and i think there needs to be more then 2 trigger people to stop this in the futer like 1 who dose the trigers and some you who can fix the problems.
I had the same problem like you and yes I found a way to solve it.
I just opened the campaign with the normal world editor and selected map 4 (RotD04.w3x). When it was opened I switched to the trigger editor and selected "Initialization". Then I choosed the first entry and deleted the first line of the third paragraph (actions).
Then I saved everything. It should work now. Level 4 is loaded after being succesful in map 3.
Actually this isn't a good idea but it helps.
I'm also waiting for an officially patch which fixes this problem correctly.
