I've found out about wargus and downloaded it a month or so ago, and I was immediately captivated by it's features. And it looked more moddable than how bne currently is too. You remember my first topic here in this forum? I've asked about changing the stats of some units globally, meaning that it would affect all the maps, including campaigns. This is literally something you can do by tweaking the ini file of wargus. That was literally what I had wanted bne had. It's amazing.
But unfortunately this is not everything I needed. I want to be able to edit the campaign maps too. Now, again I can open .sms files in the campaign folder using notepad, and I assume that it represents the physical appearance of a map, but then again, it looks something like this on notepad:
Soo, yeahh. It's almost like the machine language for a warcraft map editor lol. I could maybe somehow try to decipher it by myself, but then again... It's just way too intimidating and hard to do, plus there really isn't a guarantee that I could succeed if I tried to understand it, neither.
So what I'm asking is, is there a way to open campaign maps and change them, using an editor, and put them back to wargus campaign without messing up the triggers when it comes to Wargus/stratagus? I know that this is something we couldn't do in vanilla warcraft.
Btw, I tried copying & pasting the .smp/.sms campaign files to the custom game folder. And while I can play them just like the normal campaign with triggers, I cannot open them in wargus' built-in map editor. At first, it gives the mission briefing, as if I'm playing the mission lol. And then it just freezes when mission briefing is done. So I dunno how I could do this. Do you have an idea how to accomplish what I wanted to do?
