    This no longer works unless you hardly find solution to fix it while it gives you big problems as the stupid dll error appears and if you're using win10 after you download the dll file and put it into the right folder in C:\System32 or similar(I don't know the exact name for 64bit) another stupid error appears and I can't use it. Not worth to deal with such problem

    Doesn't appear to work with version 1.29, since War3patch.mpq has been removed. Might be solvable by copying it from an old installation into the new folder.

    The texture is missing or has a different path.

    It still works in wc3 but it is difficult to view the model in War3ModelEditor.
    I sometime use War3ModelEditor for making icon for unit and some ability.

    ok guys so you know that latest patch 1.30 made this:

    "war3.mpq, war3x.mpq, etc. have been migrated into a CASC filesystem"

    so yeah magos model editor now can't find the mpq file and all it shows is black textures...please fix :grin:

    If you have saved a copy of an earlier version of Wc3, just use those MPQs (find them in your filesystem & put them somewhere safely tucked away so they don't get updated into oblivion).

    If you don't... You may be able to find them elsewhere, or from someone else. There's also some Version Switchers/Legacy Installers being talked about here recently you may find useful.

    In moments like this you've to wonder why there isn't a Github with the model editor and mdlvis data ,_,.
