    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?
