why is it that warcraft and the world editor won't open any custom maps? they are all in w3x format and are not read by these programs how do i open downloaded maps?
W3x means: this is an eXpansion map, which means you need 'The Frozen Throne'
Do you have it?
That may not be the only problem :D if you download a map and just click on the map... it will never open. You have to put it to c://.../warcraft3/maps. (you will make this mistake if youre a total n00b, but if you didi this then dont mind my post :) )
btw, please post a reply if you still need help, OR if you found the answer.
