I want to know if the ROC version world editor (WE) can be upgraded to TFT version WE. Since I read some posts about the bugs that appeared when saving maps like w3x to w3m or vice versa, I was wondering if the WE is able to countertackle the bugs that cause this problem. I could say, the bugs are from the TFT version, so why not install it into the ROC version, so it could use the models from the TFT?

In order to support this: search for "w3x to w3m" in the search forum, and look it up. Darg said something about modeled files extracted into w3m files could change it to w3x files. But i'm not 100% clear, around 70% or so.


Back to topic, anyone could tell me, is great. :D

isnt
w3x - Maps that are using TFT stuff like the trigger editor, TFT units, ant etc..
w3m - Maps that are not using anything related to TFT

And I want to try my hand at creating maps in the limited environment of the RoC editor, but I don't know how to degrade the TFT editor.. any ideas?

You want to degrade? :confused:
Why?

I thought upgrading ROC versions would satisfy anybody.

Trust me, the Tft editor is limited enough...

It's just that Blizzard decided to "forget" to remove some of the Tft-only stuff from the Roc editor, forcing it to be a w3x (tft map) file as soon as you save. It's just a way to try to get you to buy the expansion.
If you have the Tft expansion, just install it and get the latest patch by going on to b.net (as if to sign in, and it will say it's downloading files). And that's it. Really just a few things changed from editor to editor, and it's less of a new editor and just the Roc editor with a few new things like Tft models and some new trigger stuff.

TFT editor is oh so much better than the RoC one. You can import stuff into your map with the TFT only import manager and still have it be RoC compatible. Also, you can use most (everything I have tried has worked, but I havent tried them all) TFT trigger functions in RoC maps as long as you just convert the functions to custom text when your done and before you save.

Degrading the editor is easy, I believe you just need to delete one file from your WC directory, and it should go back to RoC editor, or so I read once.

lol, I do that every day; I only have ROC. Just a suggestion, don't get too attached to be able to make custom spells or use JASS :p

Anyway:

What do u mean? Do you want the TFT editor without actually buying the expansion?

You could always just buy TFT and get the full benifit rather than trying to figure out how to do this by becoming an uber limewire pirate.

I don't want an uber pirated TFT editor!


All I ask was: CAN IT BE UPGRADED?

Answer it first, then comment it.

Blizzard makes you buy TFT to get a decent WE. That's just the way they handle their products. They want money, so they make the RoC editor crap, then make a better one that you can get for another $50. (And then they only sell the WC3 battlechest in Alaska, so I have to buy it all for $60 and have 2 copies of roc! Yay! :nuts: )

No. You cannot 'upgrade' to TFT editor. You CAN download a pirate version of TFT online, but that's stealing and is very against the law and very stupid, and those generally prohibit you from playing on RoC as well, because of the CD key thing, and since this subject isn't supported on TH, I'm gonna shut up now. :rolleyes:

Okay, okay, okay. I just ask can it be upgraded, I didn't say I want it so bad that you have to say a lot of things. I know piracy is against the law. Just asking. Sheeh! :rolleyes:


Edit: Tonks, could you help me out here ?

Yes, but not legally.
You'd just need to copy over the new .mpqs and worldedit.exe.

Ooo! Now you let it lose, will anyone else make a comment?

Unless you write it in a hidden form.
What I meant was, if there is a way to upgraded the WE, is a good start on this thread. :D

Not about piracy! Not about illegal stuff! :D

You can't have the TFT editor if you don't have TFT and don't want to become a pirate. Period. Question answered. Period.

generally the answer is no...even if you do manage to upgrade the editor only...how do you intend to play/test your map?
just buy tft if you want to use the tft editor. its simple like that.

question answered, no need to keep this open.

  • The Helper The Helper:
    The bots will show up as users online in the forum software but they do not show up in my stats tracking. I am sure there are bots in the stats but the way alot of the bots treat the site do not show up on the stats
  • Varine Varine:
    I want to build a filtration system for my 3d printer, and that shit is so much more complicated than I thought it would be
  • Varine Varine:
    Apparently ABS emits styrene particulates which can be like .2 micrometers, which idk if the VOC detectors I have can even catch that
  • Varine Varine:
    Anyway I need to get some of those sensors and two air pressure sensors installed before an after the filters, which I need to figure out how to calculate the necessary pressure for and I have yet to find anything that tells me how to actually do that, just the cfm ratings
  • Varine Varine:
    And then I have to set up an arduino board to read those sensors, which I also don't know very much about but I have a whole bunch of crash course things for that
  • Varine Varine:
    These sensors are also a lot more than I thought they would be. Like 5 to 10 each, idk why but I assumed they would be like 2 dollars
  • Varine Varine:
    Another issue I'm learning is that a lot of the air quality sensors don't work at very high ambient temperatures. I'm planning on heating this enclosure to like 60C or so, and that's the upper limit of their functionality
  • Varine Varine:
    Although I don't know if I need to actually actively heat it or just let the plate and hotend bring the ambient temp to whatever it will, but even then I need to figure out an exfiltration for hot air. I think I kind of know what to do but it's still fucking confusing
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Maybe you could find some of that information from AC tech - like how they detect freon and such
  • Varine Varine:
    That's mostly what I've been looking at
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I'm dealing with quite the same pressures though, at the very least its a significantly smaller system. For the time being I'm just going to put together a quick scrubby box though and hope it works good enough to not make my house toxic
  • Varine Varine:
    I mean I don't use this enough to pose any significant danger I don't think, but I would still rather not be throwing styrene all over the air

    I do know this - xenforo dropped the ball by not keeping the vbulletin reputation comments as a feature. The loss of the Reputation comments data when we switched to Xenforo really was the death knell for the site when it came to all the users that left. I know I missed it so much and I got way less interested in the site when that feature was gone and I run the site.
