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?
What exactely do you want? Only the mapviewer to show the edits or use them ingame?
both, if possible, but the later is most important
HELLO FROM FRANCE,
MY SON DELETED HIS patch.MPQ;
Does someone can host this patch ?
Thank you for all
Try reinstalling before you ask people to rehost a 1GB+ file?
