SharpCraft World Editor Extended Bundle

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
SharpCraft WEX Bundle v0.1.3.1
World Editor Extended is the successor to the Jass NewGen Pack. It is updated to work with the newest editor and includes the main features that JNGP had.

To use this, simply use the SharpCraft.Launcher and launch the "Warcraft III - World Editor (WEX)" profile or use the included "World Editor Extended.exe" to launch it directly.

Keep in mind that this is a work in progress. There are still several features missing. Features will be added in as time allows it and as they are requested. Some features might never return because the original developers are gone.

SharpCraft can be discussed in the hosted project subforum.

Semi-Complete Feature List
  • JassHelper, a vJASS compiler, that replaces the internal world editor compiler completely. No more crashes from bad code and many more features through vJASS.
  • Trigger Editor Syntax Highlight (TESH), a code syntax highlighter for the Trigger Editor, that makes coding in JASS/vJASS a breeze.
  • Grimoire Extensions (Grimex), a library of tools that extend the functionality of vJASS giving it the ability to create new objects(units, items, etc.) and more.
  • Increased/Removed various limits, like the number of doodads, destructables and more.
  • Object Id dialog, that allows you to manually set the object id when creating a new object. Want to make a hero peasent? Just copy the peasent, and when the dialog asks, just change the first letter to upper case, and he's ready.

Changelog
Code:
v0.1.3.1
* Updated to WE 1.29.0
* Updated TESH function database to have new natives ( thanks to @Abovegame )
* Fixed crash with ObjectDataExtractor when it couldn't locate Java, instead it will simply disable itself silently.
* Attempted to shorten paths, to avoid crash due to long path names.

v0.1.3.0
* Updated to WE 1.29.0 PTR - This is very experimental and have been done hastily. It should work with vJass/Wurst and TESH. Other features have been removed since they're now included in the vanilla editor.

* Updated to WE 1.28.5

v0.1.2.8
* Updated TESH, to fix a rare bug where it would crash the editor.
* Added WurstScript experimentally, use at your own risk. WEX will not keep the same update cycle as WurstScript, so you will have to update it manually if you encounter bugs.

v0.1.2.7
* Added fix for the File Importer.

v0.1.2.6
* Updated to WE 1.28.4
* Fixed up SharpCraft to work with new editor executable name.
* Fixed up WEX to work with new editor executable name.

v0.1.2.5
* Improved extended settings with -window and -opengl options.
* Included the option to launch with a special WEX profile. This does nothing yet, but will in the future.

v0.1.2.4
* Fixed window names for TESH so it works on all languages automatically.
* Added more no-limits features, like steep cliffs and a wider range of terrain heights.

v0.1.2.3

Approved. One of the best and most essential tools a Warcraft 3 modder can have. 5/5!
So does that mean we can just copy TESH and put it into wc3?

It should be enough to ensure the dll gets loaded on start-up. However, I don't know how JNGP/WEX managed to do this.

JNGP used custom .exe that automatically injected .dll

I'm not sure, but maybe same can be done for current .exe? Or maybe we can use JNGP's?

The lack of scripting features is simply embarrassing. If they are too lazy to implement their features, why not just use our ones that lasted for ages now.

Not directly, some additional work is neccessary. But it is possible to create an executable that loads all the TESH stuff. Would however be slower than normally, since TESH would then run in an own process.

Probably, but this is beyond my scope.

I want to ask some questions regarding to this tool. Pardon if I have done anything upseting or wrong. Is this world editor compatible with Warcraft III v1.28.5? I have heard some troubles about latest versions of the game that indeed troubles me, and thus I am unwilling to use them. Furthermore, I wish to try to begin modding once again, after all the long time. Tell me; if it is, then I will start to pick this up, if not, well it seems that my modding time has come to an end. Thanks in advance.

Sincerely,
The Emperor of Humans

If you look at the main post it says it works until version 1.29, 1.30+ is no longer supported.

Ah, is that so? Well then, maybe it is an omen for me to start the forgery of map making once again, given that this version is compatible with Warcraft III of mine. Anyways, thank you for your answer.

This only works on patches 1.26 to 1.29.

So in wake of the disaster that was brought on the community by Reforged, and as far as I know MindWorX still working for Blizzard, what now?
It looks like the promise of official WE being better than SharpCraft WEX was broken, or atleast not fulfiled at the date it was supposed to be. What do we do now? Stick to 1.29 and use this? Stick to latest pre-reforged version and use official WE? Work with Reforged WE and wait the storm out?

Hi,

Is there a way to get an older version of this tool? I have warcraft 3 ver 1.26. Whenever I compile with the latest sharpcraft editor version I get a bunch of syntex/compiler error messages. I believe it's related to the version of this tool.

It seems like JassHelper is not working when working with globals or library. Any idea how to fix this?

It would be for the best if it atleast was updated for one last time to 1.30.1/1.30.4 for 24 players, its still not changed internally as much as 1.31.1 and Reforged did. If one has a 24 player map then its impossible to downgrade anymore.
