Un-openable map

New postby Fasolace on Wed Nov 17, 2010 5:57 pm

Hi I have this map here which suddenly crashes WE as soon as it finishes loading and gives the message: "worldedit121.exe has stopped working".
I have tried everything that came to my mind but I just cant open it.
The most important parts is the Terrain and Dooded data.
If you can recover these somehow I would be very glad.
Here is the map:

That map looks like an RPG template.
Credits say it was made by Ginjis, but has no contact info or website listed.
If the map was intentionally protected, I will not deprotect it without the author's permission.
But it doesn't appear to be protected, more like corrupted.

Anyway, how can I get hold of the map's author?

I am Ginjis. :p
I have different usernames for different accounts and stuff etc.
Anyways back to topic, it's not a RPG template, it's a dungeon map.
If you don't believe me send me(Ginjis) a message at wc3c or hiveworkshop.

Oh and btw, it's not protected, so deprotecting it won't work. As I said above it just crashes WE.

Good enough. I'll save your terrain and doodads.
First I need an empty map with the exact same size though. Do you remember what dimensions you used?
I hope you didn't edit the map bounds, that makes it harder to save terrain.
Figured it out, 128x128.

Uh-oh: war3map.doo is totaled and I don't know how to restore it. Here is the terrain and everything else though:

Thanks for the help.

I replaced the original war3map.doo from the original map to a copy of the restored map and it crashed again. So it must have been something with the doodads I guess. O.o

Maybe too much overlapping doodads or a few bytes missing from war3map.doo.
I think there are tools for editing that .doo file. You could use them to try and save most of your doodads. Chances are, only one or two are damaged.
