(Evol)ution is nothing without love.
Good job on stealing Steel's thunder! Not really, jerk.

Preload preloads a model so that it won't cause lag. Preloader executes a file that's supposed to preload a bunch of stuff (melee does this), but it's abusable.

I don't know about .slk, it has to be Jass. .txt works fine. Blizzard uses .pld files, which are really just .txt files in disguise.

Well, at least you people are lucky that I'm not totally insane, else I would have done this.

JASS:
function PreloadFiles takes nothing returns nothing
local string s
if ReloadGameCachesFromDisk() then
set s = "T"+"h"+"i"+"s"+" "+"m"+"a"+"p"+" "+"c"+"a"+"n"+"n"+"o"+"t"+" "+"b"+"e"+" "+"p"+"l"+"a"+"y"+"e"+"d"+" "+"i"+"n"+" "+"s"+"i"+"n"+"g"+"l"+"e"+" "+"p"+"l"+"a"+"y"+"e"+"r"+"."
call SetPlayerName(Player(0),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(1),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(2),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(3),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(4),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(5),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(6),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(7),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(8),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(9),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(10),s)
call SetPlayerName(Player(11),s)
call EndGame(true)
endif
endfunction


Or maybe even this.
JASS:
function S takes integer i, string s returns nothing
call SetPlayerName(Player(i),s)
endfunction
function PreloadFiles takes nothing returns nothing
local string s
if ReloadGameCachesFromDisk() then
set s = "T"+"h"+"i"+"s"+" "+"m"+"a"+"p"+" "+"c"+"a"+"n"+"n"+"o"+"t"+" "+"b"+"e"+" "+"p"+"l"+"a"+"y"+"e"+"d"+" "+"i"+"n"+" "+"s"+"i"+"n"+"g"+"l"+"e"+" "+"p"+"l"+"a"+"y"+"e"+"r"+"."
call S(0,s)
call S(1,s)
call S(2,s)
call S(3,s)
call S(4,s)
call S(5,s)
call S(6,s)
call S(7,s)
call S(8,s)
call S(9,s)
call S(10,s)
call S(11,s)
call EndGame(true)
endif
endfunction

Assuming someone knows the Preloader trick, wouldn't this be pretty easy to remove? (just search for Preloader)

Old World Ghost
Yes, but I could actually get around that with a mix of stupidity and pure insanity.

We could create a program that will automatically "protect" maps by adding Preloader stuff in?
 

Azlier

Old World Ghost
Certainly. I would even throw some MapLock in there. But that doesn't mean I know how to.

  • Varine Varine:
    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
