Back up your old war2patch.mpq file and replace it with the one in there.

lol u maked it with script.bin (possible desync and drop in multiplayer because using diff file)
i will release some plugin in 3-4 days
u can more easy make it with c++ code
and not need to change old MPQ
it can load files just from folder

Can't wait to see the plugin.

As far as the dropping, the script.bin is exactly the same (just pointing to different images in the same sprite selection).  There are no event/prog changes in the files.
I've tested this many games in multiplayer with great success (not a single drop/desync).  I imagine if you are changing the event/prog lines of each single script, then yes, a desync is likely.

I have managed to make a whole new tileset that changes all warcraft 2 unit/buildings through Ed gorod's code. Plus some needed tweaks with war2patch.
It's called Sunset valley tileset (still not released)
Proof in Orc11 mission:

Human13 mission:

I haven't released just yet this plugin to easily change the stuff but please support my little channel to get more motivated to make a whole video about how to tweak all of this. https://twitch.tv/dannyldd or http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfcxs8KSkOiehS9GK9rSAKg
