Wc3 Image Viewer

During Wc3's development Blizzard had created a huge amount of content for the game but the map editor is very good at hiding it. This map tries to enable one to explore the icons/images (.blp files) part of that content. Because of the need to add a transparent 1 pixel border (in order for an image to be shown "properly" by the CreateImage native), the map needs to import the images, even though they are all stored in the game files.

PS: you can use the "cz <height>" to adjust the camera's height

    This tool can help out a lot of users in finding out hidden game files within the main game. However, that reason alone is not sufficient for approval or update.

    For all intents and purposes, one which I have deduced, this would best suit the Lab as a finding or discovery, and not a resource.

    This does not follow the following Spell Submission Rules:

    The reasons behind the following rules being broken are stated herein
    Reasons

    • uses cJASS
    • No API listed (Only Multiboard is listed)
    • No API -> ambiguous instance-ability traits
    • Concept behind the resource does not fit the properties of a resource.

    Useful tool for development. Really accelerates the search for fitting Icons. Thanks for sharing!
