SharpCraft World Editor Extended Bundle

Submitted by MindWorX
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 (Text):

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.

v0.1.2.8
* Updated TESH, to fix a rare bug where it would crash the editor.

* 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.

    It won't. We will have to wait for blizzard's official Editior.

    Does anyone know what to do when I accidentally updated to 1.30 and now my WEX is broken and official editor can't open my map?
    I've tried looking for some patch files and did a clean install of WC3 and tried to patch it, but only thing I'm finding is the blizzard autopatch setups, and also some Garena oriented 1.29 PTR which doesn't work with WEX anyway :/

    It will be cool to implement some features from JNGP (for example cjass support, because it's a very important language for mapmakers from CIS; it's a standrard of making up powerful systems like vJass). I want this suggestion to be heard.

    I would like to know the same, any way to down-patch or install the game in a different directory on 1.28/9?

    Seems like the only option since Mindworx decided to screw over all the people using his tool by disabling it and then giving a non-functioning replacement. It's a shame. I greatly doubt the World Editor will ever be brought to the standards of this tool. Last time I trust anything he writes; maybe it's finally time to look at some alternate WC3 scripting language.

    I
    I'm trying, but didn't menage it yet, also it's not really mindworx's fault.
    My friend has 1.29 still installed, I guess it's the only way to get it at the moment, get it from someone that still has it installed.

    Even though this does not work with 1.30, WEX was the go-to editor for the last patches, and deserves every 5 stars it can get.

    It is mindworx's fault...
    He joined Blizzard, disabled his tool, and told us to use broken world editor.
    I suppose this was his reason for making the tool all along, to be able to use it to get a job at Blizzard?

    WEX will never work again. There will probably never be a working vjass editor for 1.30. You can either downpatch or consider wc3 mapmaking dead now.

    (edit)
    I should have 1.28 or 1.29 on my laptop. Do you know how you could transfer it over?

    First of all, work on SharpCraft started at 2009 (or 2007? nevermind), so if the master plan was to get into blizzard that is one hack of a sideways path.

    Second, the regular world editor works with vJASS now, as you can easily check for yourself, so it's good to confirm you didn't actually try 1.30 before saying that. It's probably thanks to him and Kam (and the general community contact) that got vJASS in the vanilla editor.

    Lastly, this tool got me, probably most of this community (heck probably even you) another year or so of additional editing power after JNPG coughed it's last breath and died, which is obviously Vexorian's fault and his plan all along, which deserves the 5-stars.

    Based WEX with wc3 @ 1.29
    -Objectmerger does not work
    -The Object editor does not show the raw field ids of objects (JNGP showed these), which are necessary to create object merger commands

    Otherwise great tool.

    I mean.. yes, it is technically his fault for disabling his tool.
    But it is also his tool, so.. also his fault for making it relevant for some time.

    That said, the current standard editor covers most of our needs. Emphasis on most.

    Good old fashioned notepad and you have the jass manual to look up natives in. It's as horrible as it sounds, trust me.

    I don't know what they were thinking with the script editor in vanilla, it's so bad you can't use it for anything else than copy pasting code and hoping it will compile when you run. Ctrl-z doesn't revert the last text you wrote but the whole trigger, the font is horrible, it doesn't have text highligts, or suggest code when you write, indenting your code moves it half the view for each tab, and this is only the beginning of whats wrong with it.

    And to add to the plights, when i copy code from notepad I get the beginning distroted so for example library becomes "ᜈ퓠ᒆary" T_T

    Yeah, I know... I also know how it is to work with a notepad and a natives page open to see the natives (that's how ai scripting is done ><). Obviously the text editor in vanilla can't stay, and I'm fairly confident it won't stay. The vanilla editor can now compile vJASS (not sure about zinc, macros and whatnot), which is an obvious step towards the modding community and existing maps. Seeing as there is already some existing tool to use as base, I don't think that display setting will stay for long.

    It's rather Blizzard fault for rushing the 1.30 update so fast to the point that some marginal percentage of the modding population is losing their minds. MindWorX now follows their instructions and is not responsable for forcing a game update. Pretty sure Blizzard told him to stop updating the informal tool (this) so he could rather channel his efforts on upgrading the formal world editor. Because what's the point of scattering your efforts? Just try to think that you're a corporation.
    Corporations work on schedules very mechanically (maybe too mechanically), so maybe the schedule caught them of guard, but even on that case they must release what they got. MindWorX works for Blizzard since May 28 and the poll to get the prefered language ended on June 14 (two months ago). So what we're experiencing is the result of just ~2 months of work (probably a little more). Stop thinking that there is some kind of international complot to mess with people.

    You could redress the lack of syntax highlight with the installation of Notepad++ plus the importation of the vJass language. Pretty sure there is a very convenient tutorial on this exact matter. It's not a real solution but atleast it's something.

    That's rather a distorted view of the future. True, WEX will probably never work again but I'm pretty positive that the default editor will be replacing WEX as the new standard editor soon (how many more patches, we don't know). Supporting vjass in the vanilla editor is just their initial step.

    not even having ctrl+z functionality is pretty brutal, i just lost a shitload of progress because i saved after i unknowingly deleted something
    what's wrong with continuing support with WEX until the vanilla editor reaches parity?

    WEX and it continued support are and always were personal, free time project, and his current day job is working on wc3 as a part of the classic games team. This raises 2 possibilities:

    1. Asking his dev team manager/boss for time to keep WEX support or change the intended development process so WEX would work. I don't know much about Blizzard's inner policy with these things, but I'd be very surprised if they'd let something like that fly.

    2. Getting back from his everyday job working on wc3 and the editor, to do about the same thing during his free time. That's a fantastic, surefire way to achieve burnout from work and losing all love to the game.

    Having WEX not work sucks, no need to tell that to anyone. But try to remember that there is a person behind this tool, and those are his options.

    Hey guys, since Blizzard can't do anything right, and since I am not coding in notepad, here is how to get WEX up and working!

    1: Download patch 1.28.5 here: Warden (don't worry about other downloads, just wc3 1.28.5)
    2: Unzip anywhere, I put it in the same spot as other wc3
    3: Start WEX and configure to point to the World Editor in that instance

    you now have a proper vjass editor.
    ---
    You're right: i don't blame him, then...

    However IMO, this shows the importance of software being open source. It should not be up to one person whether or not to kill a significant piece of software in use by much of the community and maybe this makes me a little hesitant to use non OS software from now on.

    Apparently, installing warcraft III in Program Files (x86) can really fu** the launching of both JNGP and Sharpcraft, in any version, what`s the best place to install warcraft so?

    Do you intend to make a version for the 1.30 of Warcraft?
