    Can I ask what you mean by "Only compatible with Reforged and no other version" means?

    You referring to 1.32, or Reforged itself?

    If Reforged itself, does this mean you are using some kind of doodad or model that does not have an equivalent in classic Wc3? (I do not quite understand what it means by a map can only be played with Reforged).

    It requires reforged to be played as it's only using most of it's HD assets + newly added implementations that won't function on normal WC3 versions.

    If it is just HD assets, then it can be played on classic, unless I am mistaken? Only a few models do not have classic equivalents, like some doodads from the campaign, especially city doodads.

    And what implementations are you referring to? Classic + Reforged are the same in terms of world editor features.

    Edit: It is possible to force Reforged by making it a requirement in the options setting of World Editor, but I am guessing you were not referring to that.

    Maps are uploaded separately, this is ch. 1 for instance.

    This is as to provide co-oop experience.

    Hopefully grouped in one thread.

    By the way, you're still advertising the Dark Below in your signature.

    From looking at the "Preview Trigger" function, there seems to not be a save/load system.
    Can I recommend you using this one:
    Save System for Matt/Russian | HIVE
    Really easy to use, just need to import it then set the spells to the corresponding trigger, and it is finished. For missions where the 2nd hero changes from one hero to another, you can still use the system, but the previous mission's second hero can just be used to load the items from the previous mission, then you can move the items in his/her inventory out of that previous hero and delete it.

    Version 1.1 announced on 17/2/2020 check above!

    Also thanks @tulee I'll be certain to implement it as soon as possible in this chapter's newer versions and all upcoming chapters in the future!

    - EDIT [19/2/2020]: Changed the map's category to RPG from Campaign as it's illegal to name a single map posted as a campaign and I intend to post every chapter separately.

    I think Co-Op already serves the map type quite well :D

    Anyway, a nitpick from the video (since I don't have Reforged): why you prefer to use Arthas slash animation instead of the new stab animation? Just curious.

    Version 1.3 now up!
    - Check the new full vid!
    - Remember to send me your gameplay replays and I'll gladly post them as a made vid to promote your work!

    @Daffa , reforged new anims also come with special imported sounds that you can view if you open the map yourself via the editor.
    Making these anims align together is quite difficult as per limited testing capabilities overall within WC3 Reforged in it's current state.

    Can I ask why you are uploading separately?

    I know thespoon got away with doing it since he was the pioneer of coop campaigns, but there is no good reason to not bundle them together (even Spoon did this with his recent Reforged update). The campaign tag is important since the people who play these kinds of maps are the ones who search through the campaign tag maps.

    Yea, I know you did. I wrote about the campaign tag since before you mentioned you intended to upload separately, you used the campaign tag. That was only to reinforce the idea that bundling together is better than separate maps floating around.

    Hello, deepstrasz I'm very surprised that you don't need/appreciate related maps uploaded separetely.

    From what I know to my slightest knowledge I do believe that my maps don't fall under that category for several reasons:
    1)The maps truly bear the name "Revenge of Mal'Ganis" as a name but in the end they're all seperate maps, there's only like 1-2 maps were Mal'Ganis is featured and the other maps feature other character combinations aka: Sylvanas & Kel'Thuzad, Barean Westwind & Baelgun..etc.
    2)All of these maps have their unique voice-acting, 3 difficulty modes + time-limit, promotional videos, and overall guides in addition that the sole reason for their separate uploads is due to them being 2 player maps like co-op which I put thoroughly in their category and as I removed the campaign tag.
    3)Not all of these maps are the same genre, this is merely dungeon crawler/RP themed.. next one is strategy based depending on macro-map/survival defending your basecamp.
    4)There are almost many maps uploaded on hive that are related to each other and most famous version of them are the 2P+ version of Blizz's original campaign which is basically copying Blizz's work and nobody even bothered to comment on such a topic but instead on the map's quality/bugs/glitches/gameplay errors which I am inconceivably shocked a map reviewer of your seasoned skill would let it slide of your knowledge this way.

    Either ways I'll contact staff through staff contact about this issue to make sure and regardless of their judgement I'll be fully entitled to it.

    Maps that are uploaded and are related:
    - All of TheSpoon's 2P maps. And many other versions of Blizz's campaign. (I do not intend to spark anything against the maps creator I'm just asking innocently)
    - Soul Reaver's chapter maps. (I do not intend to spark anything against the maps creator I'm just asking innocently)
    - All Books of Arkain uploaded on several campaign pages instead of one bundle and one unifying description (I do not intend to spark anything against the maps creator I'm just asking innocently)

    However, if the situation is so dire I'll gladly call it off and wait till the whole map(s) completion and gladly remove this map if it contradicts hive's rules.
