    i recently updated to patch 1.30.2 and the campaigns folder is gone so i can't play custom campaign, most of the instruction i read tell me that i should just make a folder with "Campaigns" in the Warcraft III directory as name but doesn't work.
    i have tried typing "campaign/Campaign/Campaigns/campaigns" also don't work

    what should i do?

    First, you should read/search the forums. Second you should find out that the campaigns folder is now under (where your operating system is installed) C:\users\Username\Documents\Warcraft III\Campaigns.

    You can install the game to any directory you want. But starting with v1.28, some of the data of WC3 is now to be found elsewhere. This allows to circumvent file/directory permission issues with modern OSes. It is also part of the best practices in programming since the 2000s.

    As others have said, some things are now stored in the Documents folder since patch 1.28. I'm using patch 1.29 and I'm also having problems with custom campaigns since I don't see another Campaigns folder in there; if I create a new one and place campaigns in it, none of them show when I start the game. All custom campaigns that I once had are gone; even the standard Exodus of the Horde campaign (aka DemoCampaign.w3n) can no longer be found inside the old Campaigns folder (or anywhere else for that matter).

    Did anyone test if custom campaigns work on the newest patch?

    They work on all newer patches even on 1.29. I did a fresh reinstall of the OS and I recreated the folder after re-registering my CD-Keys.

    DemoCampaign.w3n used to be unavailable at some point on some installations of the game...

    Thanks for the info, guys; it works now. Hmm... I could've sworn that it didn't work when I tried it recently.
