Help and Resources

Please refer to the answers below before posting questions.

Installation

1. Download the campaign ZIP file onto your computer. (DOWNLOAD button near the top of the page)
2. Unzip the file and extract its contents into "Maps/Download" in your Warcraft 3 folder.

Unzipping files can vary depending on your operating system (Windows, Mac, etc), but it should involve something like this:
1. Right click on .zip file that you want to unzip and click on "Extract All".
2. In the "Extract Compressed (Zipped) Folders" dialog, enter a folder path where you want files to be extracted.Once done, click on "Extract" button to start the extraction.

Once the map files have been extracted into your Warcraft 3 folder, you will be able to play the Scourge Campaign as a Custom Game for each individual map. (Battle-net play is currently being investigated)


Save/Load Hero Code

How does it work?
Each time you complete a mission, a Hero save code is automatically saved in a text file on both player's computers. At the beginning of the next map, this code can be used to recover your Heroes by doing the following (only one player needs to do this):
a. Minimize the current game (Alt+Tab).
b. Open "CustomMapData\{CHAPTER NAME}.txt" in your Warcraft III folder.
c. Copy (Ctrl+C) the "load xxxx-xx..." text in the text file. Do not close the file, as doing so will make the code not copy over prior to Warcraft 3 versions 1.28.
d. Go back into Warcraft 3 and paste (Ctrl+V) the code into chat and press ENTER.


Which player will have the save file?
The text file containing the Hero save code will save on both player's computers unless one player dropped out during the mission.

Where is my Warcraft 3 folder?
This will depend on your version of Warcraft 3:
Prior to 1.28 -> Either on your C drive or the location in which you installed Warcraft 3. An example path could be "C/Program Files/Warcraft 3"
1.28 and beyond -> Located in your Documents folder


Copying the text code into Warcraft 3 chat doesn't work. What should I do?
If the code does not appear in chat after pressing Ctrl+V, this is because you closed the text file before pasting the code into Warcraft 3.
If the code you copied into Warcraft 3 results in an error message, this could be either the code was modified or you are attempting to load the save code for the wrong map.
If the code you copied and entered into chat does not do anything, this is most likely a bug and should be reported to either Turnro or Ljarvisone.


Differences from Existing Co-op Campaigns

- Maps have been worked on while keeping true to their original versions
- Improved save/load system. Players no longer have to remember and type long tedious codes! Instead, the game will automatically store codes in a text file that can be copied and pasted straight into chat
- Players get one main hero in each mission, with bases automatically shared between them. Earlier 2-player campaigns had players control separate bases, requiring huge balance changes and altering the original feel of the maps
- Maps can be played solo, especially if one player drops out of the game. This gives the other player the choice of either leaving or continue on to win the mission for the team :)
- New heroes fit the story of the campaign and do not feel poorly added

Hello! I'm the author of the Sentinel campaign for the 2 player hosted project. I've just finished playing the entirety of your work. I am most satisfied with the quality of your work. I encountered very few problems, I think your additions are neat...

    The "CustomMapdata" folder is only created once you complete a map.

    If you have the latest patch, The file path should look something like this: Documents\Warcraft III\CustomMapData
    Otherwise it might look more like this one: C:\Program Files(x86)\Warcraft III\CustomMapData

    Try typing "CustomMapData" into your computers search bar and if that doesn't work then sent a screenshot to me.

    Also which patch are you using?

    Can you play this campaign alone from the beginning? Maybe playing it controlling both bases? and btw, thanks for making this Turno, i'm a big fan of your work. Thank you very much.

    Yes, you can still play the maps by yourself. There is no 2 player requirement like with TheSpoon's campaigns.

    Hello!

    I'm the author of the Sentinel campaign for the 2 player hosted project.
    I've just finished playing the entirety of your work.

    I am most satisfied with the quality of your work. I encountered very few problems, I think your additions are neat - I loved both the sachets and the legendary items - and the save-load code is very easy to use.
    I was first skeptical of the "archon-mode" approach, but it worked rather well. Perhaps even more so than the two seperate armies. I played with a friend who doesn't like macro-management and instead likes to focus on just one hero and this setup worked very well for us.

    I did not get to play the Anub'arak part of Chapter 7c, but my friend tells me it was great.

    On a minor note, a small quip at a thing I did not like: the custom heroes you created, Falric and the Banshee. Their ladder abilities were rather mundane and boring. The Banshee firing Frost Arrows was outright visually displeasing. I would gladly create some flashier abilities that are more fun to use for them, if you want.

    Overall, the quality of your work is more than worthy of the two player campaign quality that TheSpoon and I tried to establish and while TheSpoon doesn't visit these forums much anymore, I would personally love to have your campaign included in the official download thread of the two player campaign.

    Just say if you are okay with it and I'll put the link in the proper place. Of course, there is no pressure either.

    Hi McQvaBlood,

    Glad to hear you enjoyed playing the co-op version of the Scourge Campaign. You are right about the spells for Falric and the Banshee, and would be interested in revising their spells for a future update.

    Ljarvisone and I are happy to have the campaign included on the 2-player official download forum :)

    Very well.
    I have added your campaign to the download page, the update page and made a sticky thread on the forum.

    Although no promises on this subject, but I will contant a resource moderator to also try to move the acceptance process along so that your campaign doesn't have the nasty pending tag.

    Once again, great work on all of this.

    "Players get one main hero in each mission, with bases automatically shared between them. Earlier 2-player campaigns had players control separate bases, requiring huge balance changes and altering the original feel of the maps"

    Gotta say, this seems like an excellent compromise for a coop campaign, mine implements shared control and bases without adding an extra hero for the second player. I agree keeping the original feel to the campaign is important.

    Great job!

    It is a finished campaign. Ljarvisone and I may improve a few things in the future (such as the new hero spells), but there is nothing that needs urgent work at the moment.

    I haven't really played the missions yet, but I have some questions and ideas.

    Questions:
    -Is there any way to bypass turn the QWER hotkeys into ZXCV? because I play with grid hotkeys usually, but the map replaces them. So when I press Q it orders a move command and when I press Z nothing happens. Is there a way other than going in the maps and manually changing the abilities?
    -Do the Sachets save at the end of the mission?

    Ideas:
    I think I think custom heroes should not have abilities already used in campaign like Death and Decay. But using Tinker, Alchemist, Firelord abilities and Big Bad Voodoo (The ability that Rokhan doesn't have) is ok. Tinker Cluster Rockets (reskinned as evil spirits) would be ok. You should also give Sharlindra the Sylvanas Banshee Skin as the custom one looks strange. As for voices I think Falric should have Default Lich/Death Knight, and not Kel'Thuzad voice, and Sharlindra should have the Default Dark Ranger voice so it's not just like any other banshee. And change her class so it's not exacly like the name of a unit. Also a basic ability for her could be Possession, which hides her from the game and teleports her to the target until the target dies and she is unhidden. While possessing she is invulnerable and does not gain any mana/health. Since you only use her for one mission, I don't think she needs an ult. Also give Falric the Kel'Thuzad Necromancer icon. The fan made one looks bad.

    Answer to your Questions:
    - I am currently not aware of anyway to bypassing the hotkeys but I will check with Turnro about it and see if we cant come up with anything.
    - Yes the Sachets save in the code in the same way the heroes inventory does. You just have to manually copy & paste the code.

    About your Ideas:
    We do plan to revisit the Custom heroes spells in a future update, Particularly Sharlindra. Tinker Cluster reskinned, Falric as default Lich/deathKnight and Sharlindra as Default Dark Ranger voice, I like all these ideas and will discuss them by Turnro.
