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

This is a program that decodes save codes from Warcraft III screenshots. This is usefull for RPG-style maps that allow to save the character. Instead of writing down the save code, just take a screenshot and use this program to copy the save code to the clipboard.

See the http://warcraftreader.wiki.sourceforge.net/ for more informations.

The program has been updated. It is now released under the GPL.

    from what i read you have to format your map to work with this prog it dosnt read any format? would for example it work in swat? other than that it looks promissing.. it would also help if it worked auto like when u hit print screen it made a txt file with the pw in it.

    Yes, you have to add a little piece of code to your map. The way it works, it should be extremely easy to integrate it with existing saving code. It works automatically, but not the way you are describing. You simply right-click the screenshot file and choose 'Decode Warcraft III Code'. Then you just type '-load' commandin the map and paste the code.

    I know that needing to modify the map can be a problem, but the modification is really small and the benefits are worth it.

    Hmm. Its a shame you need to modify the map :S But its nice concept, and if you could move it to the next step so it could actually kinda "read" it would be awesome. But i doubt thats possible :S

    I was just thinking about a tool that does this job. Great idea and project, but changing code output style to work makes it unusuable with latest maps. Some of big rpg makers (like TBC) should take the first step then ppl will follow i think.
    Have you tried to contact with them?
