    Greetings everyone!

    I've been away from map making for a long time and as I decided to return and finish my old projects I was a little confused and overwhelmed.
    I'm a bit confused on which map making tool I'm supposed to use.
    Trying WEX, Hive0,5 and JNGP did nothing. All of them can't properly start or giving me Error messages when starting.

    What I use:
    Windows 7 (x64), NVDIA GeForce GTX 1050, have War3 updated to latest version

    Thnx in advance!

    The standard editor seems like a good starting point ^^

    As long as I remember the standard editor was limiting on the number of doodads. Last time I was working on maps I was using JNGP but now it's not working anymore for me. I keep getting error messages when trying to launch it.

    Limits have been greatly increased a few patches ago.

    Indeed the standard WE has been updated a lot with the coming of Reforged. The third-party editors don't probably work because of the changes they've made to the game. Their plan is to make all fan-made editors obsolete as they are implementing all these bonus features themselves to the original editor. Considering we will be getting our hands on the actual "Reforged Editor" soon, I don't think there's much sense not to use the standard editor now. Third party WE won't probably be updated anymore at any point, because they are not needed anymore. That's Blizzard's plan anyway.

    They also increased the number of maximum tiles you can have in a map, which was one of the reasons people would rely on other editors.

    I can't tell anything about JASS if that's your thing though >>

    Well it seems my old map was loaded all right but cannot be saved as I have over 30.000 doodads. Shame :(

    If you downgrade to 1.29 you can run WEX.
