Warcraft 3 Item Creator v3.0.4

Submitted by PatruX
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
This tool originates from here

Creates professional and symmetric tooltips, perfect if you have a lot of items that needs to have the same apperance, but you don't want to spend hours of perfecting the tooltips manually. Easy to use, and highly customizable.

Screenshot of the tool in action can be found here.

For everyone having Vista and problems with "RIGHTX32.OCX" try the following:
http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/f478/warcraft-3-item-creater-registering-118743/

If that fails try this:

# Download RICHTX32.OCX.

# Copy the new version to the WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 directory on your C: drive

# Using your mouse, click on the "Start" button and then click on "Run".

# Type the following command to register this library file (You must have adminitrator rights):

regsvr32 \windows\system32\RICHTX32.OCX

# You should see a message saying "DllRegisterServer ... succeeded"

# You can also try to run the program as an "XP Application" (Right Click->Properties->Compatibility)

    Wait a sec.... does the n in |n| in the preview mean warcraft will create something similar to ENTER??

    Because I have been out of my mind trying to constantly line up all of the texts in the tooltips without using ENTER

    [Does "some text"|n"somemore text" =

    "some text"
    "somemore text"

    Rather than doing it like this:

    "some text" (enough spaces to make a new line) "somemore text"]


    EDIT


    About my post before, wow I didn't even realize what this does ><, all it does is compiles your text into a big mess of text that WC can read, and then you post the text into it manually

    Ok, nvm about the units mod, THIS IS AWESOME I LOVE YOU

    It appears you figured it out, but just in case, you are correct.
    |n = {enter}
    |r = {end of color}
    |c[6 digits of hex] = color

    Yes, it does.
    And you also can use Ctrl+Enter.

    Back to topic:
    This tool can automatically fill the lines of an unit on World Editor? I can't figure its funcionality.

    It works like this: You add in various details of an item. Then it builds a pre-color coded (and formated) tooltip for you. Then you can paste the output into your tooltip-extended.

    Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
    I've actually been thinking of doing something like this for a v3.0, but since I've been rather busy lately I haven't got around to do this yet. But my goal is to do this whenever I get some time over.

    Also, the tool you posted a few replys below looks awesome. Something similar to that was also planned for v3.0 ;)

    Just a quick note, I hate complex interfaces with phrases I do not normally use

    An extremely useful little addition to it would be like a little line-by-line editor, you choose a color (or pick it from 255, 255, 255), and then type the lines text, hit enter, and it is displayed in the output

    Really simple thing, I am too lazy to do it at the moment, I will probably do it later for myself, but yeah that could be a really nice addition, if somebody wants to jump a little out of the format you had already provided

    Offtopic - I don't see how green could be blues enemy???

    Offtopic - Hmm, I suppose wisdom is a blue thing, and instinct is a green thing, but I'm not sure those are opposites, instinct is kind of doing something without thought, and wisdom is deep thought, so I guess they would be opposites.... but is that enough to be enemies???

    I can see aggression vs. wisdom/holding back (red vs. blue) easily

    That's a very brief explanation on what it does.

    Edit: Quote made a bit more clear.

    kk thnx for that. I am already seeing that its a little bit more useful than before, though I could have used the warcraft 3 model editor and access the text coloring program within it. but then again, I wouldnt get the same shade everytime. so thnx

    Ahh, good old VB6. It took me about 5 minutes to figure out how to properly register richtx32.ocx on my new vista. If anyone else has this problem, pm me and I'll walk you through the simple process.

    Good update, I've been using this recently for my map.
