W3x2Lni v2.5.2

Submitted by actboy168
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
W3x2Lni is a wc3 map management tool. It helps you to manage your maps when developing or publishing.We defined 3 formats for a wc3 map, and w3x2Lni allows you to convert your maps amongst these 3 formats which are `Lni`, `Obj` and `Slk`.

> Lni
`Lni` is a VCS (like git, svn) friendly format. It looks like a directory. Most binary files in w3x will be converted into plain text files (yes! human-readable) by w3x2Lni which will also organize and categorize these text files.

> Obj
`Obj` is a wc3-readable and WE-readable format. If you want to open your map with WE, convert your map into this format.

> Slk
`Slk` is only readable by wc3 and should be used for final distribution. W3x2Lni enables multiple optimization for this format, including:

* Objects converted to slk
* Removed unreferenced objects
* Removed WE-only files
* Inlined WTS strings
* Compressed mdx
* Removed comments and unncessary white spaces in the script
* obfuscated variable and function name

W3x2Lni comes with war3 1.27.1 English data files. But it may not meet everyone's needs, you can use `w2l mpq <war3_path>` to extract data files.


For more information see the documentation.


W3x2Lni is a open source project.We welcome any pull request, e.g. improving the English text or writing English documents.

The tool works as one would expect. The UI is nice and to the point. Only thing I am missing is a back button wen you have chosen a conversion mode. You also cannot scroll horizontally when viewing the log when converting to Lni. [ATTACH] I am...

    It will now rebuild war3map.imp. So the problem is not here. Can you provide this map to me?

    I don't exactly understand how this tool is supposed to work but my experience with it is disastrous so far. upload_2018-11-23_23-55-3.png

    This is what the map ends up like after I let it through this tool. All the text and names are gone and replaced with either blank space or TRIGSTR_XXX.

    For reference I've only selected "Remove WE-only files" as an option in the tool.

    1.1c is out! | Brigand's Haven It's a strategy map and it doesn't take rocket science to work as the triggers are mindnumbingly simple.

    @Krotos have you checked the log file for errors? Also trying the 1.1c map from epicwar checking all options on convertion to slk works for me: would advice to check log file, but it could also be a bug which doesn't happen on older w3x2lni version / on the map you posted on epicwar. Hard to say without the map you tried with

    Thank you for your feedback. The log shows two errors. One is the syntax error of jass, this is because you are not using the correct data file; w3x2lni provides you with the data file of Warcraft III1.27, but this is a constant definition from 1.29. The other is the wts parsing error, this is the w3x2lni bug, I will fix it.

    I know that one of the syntax errors is the tool not recognising colour conversion to Emerald, because 1.27 and 1.28 didn't have it, but 1.29+ do. It's the rest that's currently not letting me release the map as I am unable to optimise it and protect it. I'd appreciate a quick upload of a fixed version of lni.

    Speaking of: any chance of renaming the tool in the future into something more...official / presentable? W3x2lni is such a weird name and my initial thought was that this is a highly experimental, mega-unstable tool that might just explode my maps instead of helping them.

    Haven't had the time to do so and I'd like not to be forced to inject someone else's files to get my own to work. I hope that's an understandable sentiment.

    I'll give it a try if the next version of the tool is gonna take a while to release.

    I think the name is very good. Maybe you only use the features of the optimized map, but in fact the main feature of this tool is to convert the map (w3x) and lni to each other. Optimizing the map is only a feature from 1 to 2, but lni is a feature from 0 to 1. It's very powerful, it makes a lot of things from impossible to possible.

    Fair enough. I just thought calling it something like 'Actboy's W3x2Lni Converter/Multi-purpose tool' would make it clearer what it's about from a glance.

    EDIT: Just gave it a shot and everything works right now. Cheers.
