    Variation 2:
    Total Commander + MPQ plugin (download separately)
    Install plugin MPQ plugin (Copy to folder \Total commander\Plugins\wcx\MPQ\ )
    Configuration - Options - Packer - Configure packer extension WCXs - Write in the upper right corner "mpq" - New type - Choose the path to the plugin "MPQ plugin" - OK
    Do the same for w3x w3m w3n

    Select the desired w3x w3m w3n mpq files
    Alt+F9 (unpack)
    Choose where to unpack
    Mask for unpacking - war3map.j;war3map.w3i;war3map.wts;war3mapMap.blp;war3mapPreview.tga
    Check option "Unpack each archive to a separate subdir (name of the archive)"

    Variation 3:
    MPQExtractor Kanma/MPQExtractor
    No compiled release

    Batch unpack all files from mpq:
    Variation 1 not suitable, WinMPQ decompresses only one file
    Variation 2 unpack mask *.*
    Variation 3 not compiled in exe

    war3mapMap.blp can be batch converted to png via the BLP Lab program BLP Lab v0.5.0
