Is a good general purpose editor, but it also requieres original Warcraft 2 datafiles, so will be better other that are portable. Also seems that those included are modified?? have you tested it?

Yes that is my server the .zip file is hosted on. I found that puddraft awhile back and put a copy of war2 data files in that zip with other map editors that can be used as plugins. This package has everything thing you need to be portable. Also works on my window 10 home!



EDIT: yes those might be the dos files after i installed a mod maybe. But work fine for the map editor. A quick google you can find the original if there is a problem.

So those files are for loading sprites into editor only?

No open puddraft it's a complete map editor. The plugins folder has 2 map editors, used for plugs. With this you can't change graphics it's not that advanced in game editing. But it's features make it the best map editor. If you want to edit graphics use WarDraft.

the easiest map maker is the standard blizzard one..quick maps! use war2exed to edit units or if u want to get into fancy editing use the more advanced dos unit editors/newer unit editors.

This map editor does all of that easycompany. It also uses the advanced unit edit as a plug in lol.

Yes you can edit the grp file and use different images that work online.

The UDTA plugin is really good, but seems changes are not working, i mod a Flying machine to allow target/attack units, but seems it doest not attack in game.

Could be the plugin system is failing due to incompatable operating system. Also I wonder if it's because it's not being ran as admin.

You can open it and use it manually if you want to use it.

i mean to dude even if you put it, it still wont :P i think just gives you the attack icon last i remember.

had a terrible time with a bship even though he shot at air, he cant damage air.some kinda something else needs changed.

if you make a custom pud ...put it in the user pud creation post keep them all together.

This map editor ownzzz we can edit the mpq and exe and the map editor can place our custom units. Man only if we can get a working method done on bnet and not dos :(

i can use war2exed to set custom units. still a good editor as it doesnt mess with the pud.

this one works also.

lets see what other goodies they overlooked  ::)

maybe dude is running into saving the map to itself.....UDAted i think needs 2 puds... one to save to, one for the edit.


---------------------------------------------------------
ok man heres what you do UDATED is kinda tricky...
1. make a pud ...save it twice map1 and map2
2.edit map1 with udated save to map2
3.open map2 with war2exed save the pud to itself then your changes are in place.

id def use puddraft to make the design, war2exed is so technical.


he may want the other unit editor u posted ...UDAatededed is like very good for tc's as it can save a profile and make all maps use the same setup.

the copter still doesnt attack :(

but what i wanna do is make a footy pop out of the dwarven building etc etc more unit boxes ...

one time way back i was screwing off had a footy with build boxes....i wonder since i can now set them as buildings if theyd pop out!! lost all my notes though :-\

What you mean method done on Bnet, online does not support custom units?
Title: Re: PudDraft : Best Map Editor!
Post by: tupac on June 06, 2016, 06:07:01 PM
There is a switch somewhere but I guarantee its not static! This switch would hold the info in which command group a unit is placed it. This what we need, I believe it's located in the exe. I also think the old war2 hax peon from tower relied on these addresses.

Well war2 dos can be modified to use some unused spots for units and commands same for bnet just need to locate where to place new files.

I use only this editor. PUDDraft is the best.
