Well i recently had my computer wiped [ many reasons ]

So i reinstalled warcraft 3 RoC every map works fine

Install TFT and i cannot save / open / edit TFT Maps

As i look at the TFT maps it has a white blank page icon next to it

and when i try to download maps i cannot save them in WE because there is no menu for WE

...
Ive reinstalled about 4 times and all the same

Any one else experienced this problem?

Not sure why you're opening the file with Firefox..

t looks very weird, though. Never heard of it before.
The only thing I can think of is that your WE is not installed / updated properly, since (from your screenshot) it seems your computer cannot find a proper program to open the map with.

What does the 'Open with:' say?
-Can you choose 'World Editor' from a list, there?

Did you try opening the World Editor and then open the map from there?

may it be that your TFT CD is somehow damaged?
Hmmm no because i own it digitally heres some shots of how the maps look

SS's
Warcraft 3 RoC


How TFT maps look


I normally click save map then i choose WE but since in installed i can only open Normal war3 maps not TFT maps

And the same for saving the maps
i can save normal war3 maps
But i can only open the TFT maps in Warcraft 3 itself [ the test bit ]

Try to rename the file...like If your file is called: Aceharth Kick Demo,try instead Aceharth Kick Demo.w3m...

You should also do a scan for spyware and adware and remove them and then try another reinstall.

Have you really installed TFT? It looks to me like file extensions didn't get registered. Try reinstalling it, and don't forget to install the latest patch.

When you install a program which uses specific extensions for the files it uses, the program registers to Windows which program will open these files with those extensions. In your case, you installed War3, and it uses maps which have .w3m extension. War3 registered to Windows that WE opens these maps. TFT added a new kind of maps with extension .w3x and it should also register to Windows that WE opens these maps. It's either something wrong with your Windows, TFT or you really have a virus or something.

Really weird. :nuts:

Idk how likely that is, it would only affect gamepley if it was damaged before installation, after that, the game sets itself up to run without the disc.

You could try this:
Right-click on a TFT map->Open With->Choose or browse for World Editor.exe
Does it work now? What does it say, if it doesn't work?

Have you tried opening a map from the very WE? File->Open :)

Like Exide suggested

You can always run it as a raw program, but I'm afraid that would go a bit advanced, and may not be supported to talk about here.

    Is the school system in your country similar to Chinese school system? I could never imagine being a teacher in a Chinese school, what's expected of students and teachers is just so different from what I'd be looking for as a teacher
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    A Levels is based on the UK syllabus offered internationally. So the syllabus is similar throughout different countries, taught in english.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I can't speak or write or read much chinese... Too difficult....... Which also makes my life here in china a lil difficult.
  • jonas jonas:
    Oh, I see. I thought Chinese version of A-levels :D
  • jonas jonas:
    I've been using the translate app a lot on my phone. take a photo, translate. take another photo, translate again :D
  • jonas jonas:
    it also has voice translation, my colleagues sometimes use that
  • jonas jonas:
    You came during the 0 covid policy right? How'd you get through quarantine? Did you have some help with the apps and green codes?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    If you have any Chinese you need help with, let me know.

  • vypur85 vypur85:
    @jonas Those were the things I did too. Translate app and VPN are always the most important things to have to survive. Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yea I came last year. I was quarantined for about 30 days. Fml. The first day of my quarantine was the eve of Chinese new year last year. Fml again... Lol.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    @tom_mai78101 IIRC you're from Taiwan right.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I thought China had cracked down on having any foreign teachers?
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    Yeah I've heard of the news before. My school is still actively hiring foreign teachers. Not sure how things work now.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah it is hard to get reliable information about that kind of stuff
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but you are doing it so it is still doable
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I think it doesn't affect existing foreign teachers. Then again, its still weird that my school is hiring.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Happy Monday people hope everyone has a fantastic week!

    Happy Monday?! That's a contradiction.
