    How do I get the MPqs to work?

    Hi, I just discovered this whole map editing thing and am trying to get a few that I downloaded to work in WoW Map Viewer. The two files I downloaded were named patch-m.mpq and patch-5.mpq. I renamed patch-m.mpq to patch.mpq and copied it into my Data folder, replacing the original mpq file. I got it to work in WoW map viewer, but lost a lot of other stuff. However, when I did the same thing with patch-5.mpq, wow map viewer crashes.

    Am I doing this right? Thanks all.

    Well -- You shouldn't have replaced it.

    In 3.* the mapviewer is unstable and therefore not fully working. He will never load any -*.MPQs. WoW will.

    I actually backed up the original patch.mpq file so no worries there. And I did manage to get wow map viewer to read one mpq file, but I understand if it doesn't work with all of them.

    If I shouldn't have replaced the original patch.mpq file, what should I have done?

    Thanks.

    Try reinstalling before you ask people to rehost a 1GB+ file?
    I don't do tutorials.
