Z mod with Warcraft-Editor?

Post by RocketFuel » 2009-05-29, 22:14

Hi! I´m new here!
Z has been my favourite game since ... well 1996^^.

However,
I played Warcraft3 and Starcraft, too. They are great games, almost as funny as Z.
Althought Z is unbeatable.
Anyway, I started fooling around with the WC3-Editor and created a map that should be a little bit more like Z.
I am not a pro when it comes to using the WC3-Editor, but I put in some Z-Sounds and created a battlefield in which you have to win sectors instead of the original WC3-stuff.

I wondered if someone wants to try the map, or feels like developing it, too. Maybe someone has had a similar idea with the SC editor (is there an editor? :D )

Well, yeah, that´s it. :D

RocketFuel, welcome to the forum! :)
Well, you are rigth, nothing beats Z! 8)
Having said that I'd better make use of Z map Editor rather that bother with WC3-Editor.
Though Z was abandoned by Bitmap Brothers (actually they are no longer exist), I have reversed engineered most of the game internals and so that the community could produce Z-remake with support of original maps.
WinZMod - mod for playing Z with high screen resolution
ZEdMod - ZEditor mod allowing to edit single player levels
ZGFX - Utility for extracting Z graphic
ZStats - Small utility for fine-tuning unit statistics
Z-Remake - XNA project on 2D IceCream Engine

Hi Meeky,

Ok,
but I first I need my "rapid-share"-Z-exp-CD to run on my vista system....
My orginal CD cant be found anymore. My normal "z"-CD runs in the dos box.
But the editor is part of the expansion.
Damn, I bought it at least twice :x
I have to try again.
CU,...

However,
I am still working on my Z-game with the Warcraft3-Editor. It´s fun to play with the sounds and music of Z.
I try to make the units like in Z, and it is fun, but it cant reach Z, of course. Its still fun to try...^^

So If anyone wants to try it ... call me!
