    so I'm currently in the process of trying to get the models from DoC to work.
    Ran into a problem though, I appear to be missing a texture called Mud.blp for the Orc Buildings, but I cant find this texture anywhere in the mpq. Any help?
    On another note, have you considered perhaps getting Project Revolution?

    I was also unable to find that texture. The solution I came up with was to take a screenshot in game and convert it to a .blp since it's a rather simple texture. I have not had a chance to yet, so feel free to.

    As for Project Revolution, do you have a contact for their team? Their project has been inactive for many years.

    Do you mean just take a screenshot of a mud texture and use that for the texture?
    And no I dont know anyone who worked on Project Revolution.

    Yes. Take an in game screenshot when an orc building is being built. Crop it down so only the construction base is showing. Use wc3 viewer to convert to a blp.

    The texture in question, Mud.blp, is actually in one of the sub-MPQs as it has tileset specific variations.

    Using War3 Model Editor v1.05
    1. Go to Windows -> MPQ browser -> File -> Open
    2. Open DoCWar3Patch.mpq
    3. At the bottom of the list view you will see C.mpq
    4. Export C.mpq
    5. Open C.mpq with War3 Model Editor
    6. Browse to ReplaceableTextures -> Buildings -> Horde -> Common -> Mud.blp

    No, you have to downgrade. That should be in the documentation on their forum.

    @JokeMaster - What kind of challenge?

    A newer version of which mod? If you mean DoC that is the latest version. They are working on an update as of April 23, 2012. When they release I will update this package.

    That sounds like a connection problem to the server. Either your ISP doesn't like it or you have a firewall or other security feature that is inhibiting you.
