This is regarding war3 reforged:

Hello, I really enjoyed this map many nights on the old warcraft. Me and my friend wanted to play it, but each time we try to play it together one of us disconects.. is either the host or the other one. We tried on multiple version.. same thing, after the loading screen finishes.. one of us gets disconnected. Any fix?

@maddeem If you try to build the credit shop at a spot where the ground is not suitable to build on, the shop will of course not construct, but you still lose the 1 credit. in the newest version.

EDIT:
Also using the "build paved ground" ability can desynch at times.
Artillery Cannon can not be selected again once deselected, also it has no model?

patch 1.27a only supports version 1.31 and lower I believe. That might be the issue

I wish you atleast take some time to read the information of the map, it says.

Current means it will only work at patch 1.32.1+. 1.27 is super old get off that patch.

Your only way to play this map in older versions of the game is to ask the author for an old version of the map that's compatible in your game or browse the older version of the map in epicwar (if it exist).

How do you deal with boss level vision? No matter what I do or try the boss at lvl 10 keeps burrowing into base and i lose. Very frustrating. Any tips would be nice

Have your builder near the place it will attack, all vision is lowered at boss 10, make sure you don't have any "fake spots" where it thinks it can get into the base, but is actually blocked..
e.g don't build too close to rocks where units can run past.

If you don't have vision over the boss it will burrow into your base

I'm having the same issue as Jeanie. Sometimes it auto loads, sometimes it doesnt, but when it does sometimes it loads the wrong number of credits. When it auto loads with the wrong number of credits I'm unable to manually load in my most up-to-date code.

An update: We've been having a lot of fun playing this map again. However, there is a strange bug.

Of us four friends, one of us the autoload works and the other three it doesn't work. We all play Mineralz together and saved at the same time, so we have the same code.

3 of us played last night on maybe(?) a different version of the map on battlenet. We all are having problems with the code.

Today I hosted the map and played with a fourth friend. After getting to night 16 we all died and saved. When we loaded the next game, only 1 of us had the credit and the record of reaching night 16. The rest of us had no credit and couldn't load the code manually.

I checked in the CustomMapData>Mineralz>Screenname>PlayerData.txt and we had identical text files.

Any idea on how to fix this or what is causing the problem? Why does it work for only 1 of us when we all saved at the same time?

My version of Warcraft is 1.32.9.16589.
My version of the map is Mineralz 1.55(c)Prot.w3x

Thank you so much. I really love this map and can't wait to start building up my credit account :D
Possibly fixed the saving and loading of codes by making the system significantly more robust. ( Checks for multiple load files and player names. It will also attempt to check codes without the battlenet handle id of the player for future compatibility)

Try it out and let me know how it goes :)

Thank you so much for the update!

I've played 2 games so far. The first game I won and got 3 credits. However, 1 player desynced out of the 3 of us early in the game. Second game loaded perfectly with 3 credits and night 20. My one teammate desynced when I built the credit shop though.

Will post again after more data is collected.

UPDATE:

Played again. Successfully loaded my 3 credits and 20 nights. This time when building credit shop it exited me to the defeat screen. The other player showed that I had desynced.

Okay, fixed. It will also tell you what code it is loading from + credits & nights loaded.

Played 2 games. First one we died like noobs on lvl 10 but loading worked without desync. Second game we won and everything worked perfect. What an awesome game!!! Thank you so much maddeem!!!

UPDATE: Played several more games. One time we had a fatal error but I think that was just a wc3 reforged thing...Map has been working like a charm. We're having so much fun! Thanks maddeem!!! :D

Are some zergs supposed to survive and attack during day? I ask this because it just happened this one time, very unexpected.
Perhaps you could take a look at this replay @maddeem
Yes! If they are standing on creep, they are immune to the effects of sunlight. If you do not kill them overnight, they turn mutate and become much stronger the following night.
