I hope this is the right place to put this, but nowhere else seemed right.

Okay, so I know about deleting the war3map.wtg file in MPQ2K to hide triggers, but people can still open the map in WE. Are there any other files I can delete using the MPQ2K to make the map more protected (not openable by the average person)? Also, I noticed that after I tested the version which I deleted the war3map.wtg from it ran much smoother than the original. Are there any other files I can delete to improve the game play?

I'm on a mac.

Just throwing these out there: Vexorian's Map Optimizer and the Widgetizer.

Not sure if they work on a mac but give it a shot, I'd say if neither work try for Heavy Locker (bit older). Those are the only three I've heard of.

They all can be found either in the tools section here or on wc3campaigns.

I guess I can't do this because I use a macintosh computer, right? I did try it on my windows, though. . .

My map crashed both the optimizer and widgetizer, something about having a huge amount of custom strings, but I dont really care about that. What I do care about is that I can't delete the optimizer. It says it's in use all the time. . . control-alt-delete, restarting, nothing works. Thats why I hate using my windows computer: I really have no experience with how to deal with it, and now I have a program that I can't seem delete.
