    Would you make petition to Blizzard to release Alpha mpq and prebeta mpq? As many people know prebeta and alpha looked much better then final product? I don't believe they haven't got it. Blizzard still has those files, because as we saw at some videos the engine in alpha was scraped for making of World of Warcraft. So has anyone tried and what was answer?

    Old (alpha and beta) .blp files can't be opened in new programs, I tried it with beta .blp files. So no resources can be used actually.

    Weren't there blp programs back then? There can still be found or they are now abandon ware? Still maybe there is way but we would have to ask someone who is really good with image formats.

    Heh, forgot entirely about that. Anyhow, I'd prefer if you didn't use that one any more as I don't really care any longer.

    We should open new one. As we saw many of those icons were used in WoW. As well some which were never released to public.

    Textures

    As I already wrote in "Welcome to Warcraft", the textures in the beta mpq are in blp0 format, there is a converter for these, just go to "Welcome to Warcraft" and download the attachment

    I'm sure there's someone out there who has kept the alpha.

    I'm sure nobody (other than blizzard employees) has ever gotten their hands on the alpha... The beta's downloadable on a few sites, but the alpha is not.

    Also: Total: 181
    Epic fail. Doubt a new petition will have more success. And it's not as if blizzard actually cares about them anyway?

    Actualy, I think Blizzard doesn't cares about it.

    However, I saw an old thread by NearbyHermit , where he was trying to find beta models, textures and MPQs. He said someguy had it, tried to contact him, but, no sucess.

    What about some gaming magazines or sites? Those always get a preview or a playable demo of the game, in this case alpha. And as far as i remember there is video where prebeta beta is being played in public.

    It was a blizzcon/e3 event, so yeah those things aren't really released to the public, and it wouldn't matter anyway as most of the things that were in the RPS/Alpha Warcraft were recycled and revamped for WoW
