How to create your own Campaign!

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

Hi. Thank you its work , or maybe.. lol. When i load the map 2 after my mission, its work but... Its say waiting for host...:nuts: Im not in battle.net! Im only in Single Player! I dont know why its say waiting for host lol i dont know what is the probleme.
 
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..
 
I have also never heard about something like that before... It sounds strange :p
 
Variable

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:

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done

  • The Helper The Helper:
    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
