Self-fix for JNGP on Patch 1.28

    The reason JNGP does not work out of the box on patch 1.28 is that the CD keys have been removed from the MPQ files. So, when the world editor can't find the TFT cd key it assumes you only have ROC installed and loads that editor instead.

    To fix this you must:
    1. Download font.zip and extract the "roc.font" folder and rename it to "font".
    2. Go to your 1.28 installation folder, and open "War3.mpq" with a MPQ Editor.
    3. Import the "font" folder that you extracted earlier to the root of the MPQ and close it.
    4. Repeat for the "tft.font" folder and "War3x.mpq"..
    This will load up the TFT editor when launching JNGP.

    I edited the thread title from 'Hotfix' to 'Self-fix' to avoid confusion because the term hotfix is being used to refer to Blizzard fixing the issues for 1.28. Anyhow, great thread for the meantime if anyone needs to use JNGP in 1.28 right now. Note that the self-fix may or may not be necessary anymore depending on a fix that could come from Blizzard.

    Those contain your CD key, so make sure you don't mind sharing it to the public.

    From what they say in forums it broke all version switcher software, probably will stay like it at first for v1.28, but maybe you can make a clean install, and then try to pach it manualy with patch files from 1.27.

    Someone who can use a cd key changer to change their CD key to a banned one, then they can upload their font folder.

    I remembered I still had a 1.27 install on my old notebook and used the font files from that one. Seemed to have worked. Thanks!

    Do you have a recommended procedure for creating a downgraded copy of wc3 so I can get my 1.27b fonts file from it? I already patched my main install.

    Did you explore your Shadow Copies with ShadowExplorer, in the hopes your main MPQs are still on your HDD?

    I got the files from an old install on another PC, worked perfectly.

    Nevermind I am getting the error when testing map.

    Can't there be a simple fix without all the two game copy nonsense?

    Edit: Can you upload those Font files here?

    You could download 1.27b installer from b.net and use banned keys, maybe.

    Sadly I can't, too late for that. I have reverted back to 1.26 patch, where everything was normal. 1.28 is too unstable at the moment and I can't work on my maps using it.
