Hey, i recently was asked by a friend to help him edit his map.
So he sent me his map and i opened it in editor, made the changes and saved it.

But then started the problems.

I was unable to create the game???


I went into LAN games-Create game-Create
Then it went back to the LAN game finder.

Have in mind the version that he sent me (that i diden't edit) works to create but as soon as i save it with my world editor it wont start.


Any1 got a clue what to do? pls help

Yes. It can be because the map is to big ( in kilobytes ). I think the limits of the map is around 5000-6500 KB (5-6.5 MB) If the map is to big, this actually happens. Try to avoid importing custom musics, like those who are like 3 minutes and is 3 MB big. That takes alot of memory in the map.
Hopes this works. Otherwise, my only idea of causing this is that either he, or you, have the latest version of the Warcraft 3 and the other one have an older. Or vise-versa.

Hmm okay, the map aint to big only around 800 KB, and i think we are both on the latest version.

Maybe because it was created using another version of warcraft and then we updated after is was made.

But that basically says that we are unable to edit the map at all?

Well, The map can be opened and edited by the editor if the map still is saved as a older version of WE (World Editor). But then when you save it again, it should match you'r warcraft 3 version, unless you haven't updated it before you tested the map. Could you send me the map. I could check if it works. You have my 100% word that i whont pusblish, edit or say that it's my map. You maybe just need to save it with the latest version of B.net. I have it. Try to update you wc3 throught bnet if you don't already have done it.

Here's my mail. [email protected]

Remember. You have my word.

Pretty sure he is using an older version of WE.

Happened to alot of old maps, infact nearly half the maps I had stopped working after one patch. No idea that caused this, but I'm sure someone on here does.

Either way maybe you could dig up something on google to check what caused these maps to stop working.

It was patch 1.24 btw.

Some quotes from it are "the changes that were made to warcraft 3 to fix some security issues with the game on battle.net"

Well if this problem remains for some people. They should really visit b.net´s support forum.

EDIT: I can't either test the map. As where i see the problem, it is that the creator of the map have exceed the limit of Trees/Destructibles. 9061 placed Trees/Destructibles of 6144 allowed. The creator should remove some Trees/Destructibles.

No i couldn't. Check the EDIT in my recent post.
I think also that the creator of the map is using JNGP, or other inject softwares for World Editor. In that case, i can't test the map. As what i see. Theres alot of JASS work in only one trigger. He should also use more triggers instead of SICKNESS much of JASS code in one trigger. Cause i think that's above the limit but i dont know a shit about JASS so i can't tell ya.

hmm okay, im using JASS aswell, the map saves just as any other map so idk what the problem might be. Maybe i should wait for someone with more knowledge in JASS to reply ^^

Thanks anyway

The map doesn't save as it should. Delete the trigger that's includes all the JASS and then try to save. I think it's something in the code that makes the map to be able to save the map with more than the limit of Trees/Destructibles and when to test the map, the JASS code haven't been started yet because the JASS code starts when the Map starts. So then the WE whon't let the map start because it have overflooded limited number of Trees/Destructibles.

So what i think you should try to do is to either, remove some Trees/Destructibles or try to use JNGP for the map to see if it works with that.

aaha lol ive got a feeling this "map" is an unprotected map. i could be wrong but

What happens is when u unprotected the map with this specific tool "I'm not going to say what tool" it takes every trigger in the map converts it into 1 big jass trigger then when you try to save or edit the map it will either do the following

1) unable to compile and cause syntax errors

or

2) compile fine but unable to host on war3

like i said i could be wrong :D just seems like it!

Ok i tried to tweak the settings abit and reading the instalation progress for JNGP and tried to save again and i recived syntax errors... :/ im soooooo lost

Bottom Line. Even if 2 different warcraft 3 versions were the case it would tell you, "This map was saved with an older version" and you can save over it and fix the problem.

If he used any other tools new newgen, You can clearly tell.

the only other thing i can think of is this sounds allot like an unprotected map.

Haha now i see that to. It's an unprotected map. It is written in the top, unprotected with "#####"

##### = Name of the software ;)
 

Draceus

New Member
lol yeh now i also see that xD

I asked him and he said he wanted to make some changes to this map and wanted my help.

But i guess it cant be done on an unprotected map?

Well that sucks ^^

I had a feeling it was unprotected:D Sorry. We don't support that here!

Thats the beuty of that tool. Unless you redo all the triggers and there could be errers in the acaul mpq files unless u fix all that yourself the tool is good to just learn from the map or look at sounds and custom models and icons

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?

    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.

    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
