    Yeah. I just figured it out, but now I am working on how to get it from old WC3 files, because my WC3 is updated to 1.30 version and itself has been removed MPQ files I think. I guess I have to download from old WC3 CD key I have it in my closest on computer without online preventing from having 1.30 version that trying to remove MPQ files? So I can find war3.mpq and war3x.mpq from old WC3 files?

    This program was always serving me very well. But, on my new computer, it's manifesting the error about splatdata.txt and doesn't work. After after trial and failure method I was able to run this program, but then again, it came out I can't open any file.
    I had to download another program, it is working and seems better (but it's much more newer, so this is understandable).


    My rating is 3/5. If not about the matter sometimes people have issue running it, it would be probably 5/5.

    Check if the filters are blocking every file from showing up.

    Did you try to select the MPQ manually ?
    In the MPQ Browser : File > « Open MPQ Archive » and find your MPQ.
    If that doesn't work/you already tried, is your MPQ legit ? (If you downloaded one that you found on the internet because you didn't save your MPQs after updating War3, it might be corrupted)

    I've tried that, and yes I have the real Warcraft 3. I don't know what is happening.

    Have you tried using a different MPQ editor to see if it has the same problem? Otherwise, make sure that neither Worldedit or Warcraft III are running in the background before opening the MPQ.

    When using « Save as » you have to manually write the extension of the file manually (.mdx or .mdl).

    @(Battleships) Speed: based on Tamplier777's post (which is three entries above yours), please guess what the answer to your question may be.

    pyf Okay. Well, for War3.mpq... it still from old WC3. I was wondering where can I find new War3.mpq for Reforged? I have CascViewer. It just that I cannot find "War3.mpq" for Reforged.

    Because War3 doesn't use MPQ anymore. With CascView : Game Storage > Select Warcraft III
    If you want to use War3 Model Editor, you'll have to find the MPQs online.
