Sweet! I was wondering how to make a campaign and all that cool stuff. :D Great job with this! :thup: +rep!

Let the game begin...
Something you should add to the tutorial. If the map is bigger than 4MB then it won't work using the campaign editor. You can attach the map, add it to a button and save properly. But when you enter wc3, and press that button that will start your map you will just come back to the same screen. Have tested around both with new maps and my own campaign map. Would be nice if someone proved me wrong though.

In order to test that I would need some campaign that's over 4MB large. :p
I guess importing a song would do the trick..
I'll try it out when I got the time.

I doubt that.
Afaik, 4mb is only the battle.net limit.

Maybe it was something you imported which was the cause of this.

On another note, Everything you import should be imported into the campaign file, not the map :p

Yep, I had the same problem, but as Romek said, you're maps shouldn't include any imports, only the campaign file. You'll have to reassign all references to these filles in your map though.

Actually. You don't need to import everything that is used in your campaign into the campaign itself. -You can import certain stuff into the maps as well.
Such as Loading Screens and models and icons which are only used in that specific map.

I've never heard of anything like that before. :confused:
You should probably start a thread about it, and maybe upload your campaign, so that we can have a look at it..

> You should add how to stop a cinematic from appearing your second time-about.
It's too specific and basic.

Great Guide. Definately helped me, but what I'm still stuck on and cant seem to figure out is, how to save items the hero is carrying?

It was a long time since I used Wc3 World Editor, but if I remember correctly the items and abilities are automatically saved. When you save and Load the Hero.

This was a good guide.
I seriously want to be a map maker, +rep.
This taught me how to make a campaign map, seeing as I wanted to make one.

P.S: +rep :thup:
