heroes III map editor wont open map

Postby happyashellas » Sep 3 2013, 15:03

I cannot open a map in the editor as it gives the message box saying:
Invalid file type 6015583, current version 28
Is there a way to change the version number or am I doing something stupid?

Wake of gods editor brings up the same message, in fact it doesn't even show in the list of maps for some reason. I have heroes III complete on one drive and wake of gods on another. I just copied the file from one maps directory to the other. Does this shed any more light on things, or confuse things further. Any help greatly appreciated.

Then the map probably has uncommon size, like 18x18 or 242x242, this can be done using different programs then need special editor patch to preview. What is map's name?

Map editor patch may help you.

If he can't open the map, Grayface patch is useless. Some time ago someone posted in HC a patch which changed the sizes of maps generated, but can't recall where.

It was just an extra large map that I made a few years ago, and can't for the life of me find a back up copy ( I know, I know ). Don't understand what happened to the original as it hasn't "been" anywhere.
Looks like back to the drawing board maybe..........
