Releasing it on TFT is a good idea.

Last time I checked there were 1,000 RoC players online against 100,000 TFT (players online).

What? Your maps have TFT features? Yet they are .w3m? You hacking hacker you... that's just impossible. I know a way to turn If multiple functions to RoC compatible; just convert to jass. Lol.
I WANT TO KNOW YOUR TUTORIAL!

I don't think that makes sense matching of what I read from wikipedia of the definition of procrastinating.

Procrastination means that I keep telling myself "I'll do it tomorrow." and never get it done.

EDIT:
From wiki wrote:Procrastination is a behavior which is characterized by the deferment of actions or tasks to a later time.
The rest of the article is just pshycological babble. :)

I'm still new to map conversion but I'd like to help where I can.

Here's what I do:
1.) Create a new RoC map, open it in WinMPQ, delete ALL files.
2.) Create a new folder on desktop to hold files.
3.) Open .w3x map, copy the map description and loading screen information and paste it onto the .w3m maps.
4.) Open .w3x map in WinMPQ and extract ALL files into your new folder.
5.) Protect if you'd like.

I avoid TFT models because I still don't understand it.
Some TFT triggers are strictly TFT.
Hope this helps in any way.

L0K3 <-- Me ;)

P.S. 3ICE, feel free to remove/edit this post as needed.

Success.

Perfect. (But protection is a must, because maps converted in this way contain junk data which should be removed.)

You need to export the models from war3x.mpq and import them into your map with the proper path (for example instead of the default war3imported/Dragonhawk.mdx, you'd use Units/Human/Dragonhawk/Dragonhawk.mdx)

False. All triggers work in RoC, even floating texts and global weather.

It helped: I didn't have to type it :)
