    I agree with MogulKahn and Warseeker. If players intends to ruin their campaign experience, they should use cheats, Turnro. Since the situation is that complicated, I would recommend you to enable cheats. Who likes going back to previous chapter(s) only because of items, anyway? :)

    Sorry, I understand that I didn't explain myself properly.

    The problem is not to do with the map traveling itself. That part works perfectly. I was more referring to cheat disabling while in the sub-maps, since losing these maps and restarting through the menu would only bring the player back to the beginning of the sub-map rather than the start of the chapter. This bug would allow players to complete the sub-maps multiple times, stacking up on the same powerful items they can find.

    I have prevented this issue by allowing cheats to be used in the sub-maps. After reading the comments so far, this seems to be the best solution for now.

    Well, if you think that enable cheats will be wise for the player, then do it, But I'm not so sure about that,
    Why would anybody to use cheats in the progress of the sub-maps (That will ruin the exp campaign)
    Btw, I'm not sure what kind of Warcraft 3 cheats are you reffering to, I don't see how this would work?

    Edit : I got it, For example, instead of restarting the whole maps from the begining, you could go through cheats (Ex : Whosyourdaddy Cheat), since the maps are already being played before, but honestly turnro, only campaign maker do so, instead of repeating the game while testing
    Personally, This is the second time I played your campaign (Malfurion's Quest) the original and the last update, and I have no problem restarting from zero, yeah why? That's will give me more experience/ Strategy
    To understand how the AI of ennemies works, maybe finding some hidden items you didn't notice them the first time you've played this campaign (Specialy if you update the previous maps)
    So, for me disable those cheats or not it's still a problem (They are some people whom don't like to wast their time, even if it's the first they play the campaign or the difficulty level is too hard for them)
    Anyway, let it the same, It's people decision

    I totally agree with MogulKhan/Warseeker/Lazarator : allowing cheats as a (temporary?) solution.

    So the cheats will be allowed in hard mode , right ? Are you going to change some of the artefacts to balance or something ?

    I had a better idea! Since you want to disable cheats, how about this idea :

    When u update this campaign and add more chapter, what about if u could just make those new chapters Visible for the player (Inside Campaign Editor) not all, ex : the last chapter was for example 4 , in this new update, make chapter 5 visible (boutton) instead of restarting from the begining of the game,
    Don't worry, the Game-Cache works perfectly (If it's not deleted by the user inside the save folder) now the player can normaly continue the progress, same items he already have.
    For me that's a better solution, and now you can disable cheats if you want if you're using this idea....

    Hi Warseeker,

    I've actually answered this question through your profile, but I'll re-answer it here since it is something other people will benefit from.

    When the new update comes out, you will be able to skip to the new chapters by typing in specific cheat codes in the first chapter. These cheat codes will be different from the previous update of Malfurion's Quest, and will be available once the update comes out. This action also unlocks the previous chapters, depending on the story you wish to skip to.

    Automatically making these maps visible in the loading screen doesn't seem right for this campaign, as it would make it extremely confusing to those who have never played Malfurion's Quest before.

    Hi guys,

    Really sorry, but I still need one more day to finalize the update before releasing it onto Hive. Will keep you informed once it is done.

    Merry Christmas everyone! The new update for Malfurion's Quest is available, which includes 5 new maps and several bug fixes.

    For those who wish to skip to the new content, read the instructions below:

    Chapter skip codes

    1. Enter the campaign as per usual and play Chapter 1 - A Destiny Unravels
    2. Once in, press enter and type one of the following codes:
    "sentinel 13" (this will skip to Chapter 4 of the Sentinel storyline)
    "highborne 12" (this will skip to Chapter 4 Part 1 of the Highborne storyline)

    NOTE: Typing these codes will also unlock all existing maps before it in the loading screen, depending on which story line you choose to skip to.


    When you download the new version of Malfurion's Quest, it is highly recommended that you DO NOT change the name of the file. Doing so may cause the map traveling feature in Chapter 5 of the Sentinel story to no longer work.

    Finally, this update is a great way to end the year and I look forward to continue to working on Malfurion's Quest into the new year :)

    Hey Turnru I'm having a problem in the new Sentinals chapter
    SPOILERS
    When I find Jarod and enter the temple I have found only 8 out of 10, I used iseedeadpeople and killed everything, nothing found.

    So can you check if they are indeed 10? Are they all inside or some outside?
