    It does its job for extracting and converting texture files (for editing)-very convenient.

    If you're playing on patch 1.30 or newer, then you'll first need to extract the mpqs using a CascViewer.

    Team colour just shows black now and some models have "see-through" textures, you can fix it by modifying the materials and extracting the team colour textures and applying them directly. Just don't save the model.
    Here's hoping for an update when Reforged releases, maybe not to edit those models, they probably will work like SC2 models.

    The texture is missing or could not be loaded. If you're playing on patch 1.30 or newer, you'll need to export the MPQ folders from the game using a CascViewer and put them inside the War3 Model Edtor folder.
