That's very strange, doesn't look like my folder at all.
Let's try this:
- Open a new folder
- Navigate to the hard drive (C:, D: etc.) where you installed WC3
- In the right corner, write 'war3.mpq' and press Enter.
This will take a while - roughly 5-30 minutes depending on how much junk you've on your hard drive - as it will scan your entire disk for the correct file. If it finds the file, which it should as the game wouldn't be able to load the game assets without the *.mpqs.
Once the file has been found, right-click on the 'war3.mpq' and press 'Open File Location', this should lead you to the correct folder where the *.mpqs are stored.
If this doesn't work, then I have no idea. Google for "war3.mpq" and try to find a direct download for them.
oh i've forgot to tell you that i recently installed this in my other pc since my pc was busted
@Arowanna What version of Wc3 are you running? You've heard, of course, that the newest released Patch (v1.30 & the hotfix) no longer have the MPQs but instead use a different file format (CASC, same as all other Blizzard products now) to hold all the files?
Oh, I haven't updated my WC3 folder since 2011, sorry. Didn't know about that. It's still patched and up to date however, so I assumed that it should be there.
Could we maybe ask for Ralle's approval to have the MPQs uploaded here on the Hive then? As I assume people will need them every now and then?
Slowly getting there
i seconded this, this may help old war3 player who wanted to get back into modelling and skinning
I'm still on 1.26 version and don't want to update it anymore XD
@chr2 set the album to public we can't see the images you've uploaded.
This is a really interesting theme and Old Gods are really one of my favorite characters from warcraft. Unfortunately, I haven't texturing or moddeling yet, but I can give a suggestion to Chen.
This is "The Ancient One" from Hearthstone, one of the Old Gods most superior minion.
the only unit i can think of is hydralisk
Maybe a mix between Naga Royal Guard and Hydralisk or something like that.
Hm.. wouldn't be better to remove those black things via Windows >> Model Editor?
would be better if i got the mpq but i go with your advise
also is purple crystalline related to old gods just like how benedictus staff?
Aww man, you used to be able to link to images from private albums... if it ain't broke why fix it?! ):
Well, I've changed it to public now so hopefully you can see the images.
I think I'm almost done with it. Needs just a bit of tweaking. Therefore, I'll make an entry post soon.
Lookin' great peeps! I'm looking for someone who can judge this one, and knows a little bit of the Old Gods.
Here is my entry.
I think we all would finish our entries in the given time.
funny to know that im trying to create same thing but on the different occasion
and not to related to benedictus but based on how benedictus look
