Starting over?

Postby Salloc » Fri Jan 04, 2008 1:55 pm

I played WoS quite a while back but some things happened that made me forgot about finishing it up until now. Thing is, I remember almost nothing about the overall story and don't even have a good idea of where I was so I am going to be starting out again on Book 1, but when I start it up I have Hikaru and Co. with uber levels and stuff. I assume that after I finished Book 1 you are allowed to replay it with the heroes you finished it with, but I don't want to do that since I like things to be as challenging as possible.

Now I have exactly 0 experience with the world editor but I decided to dig around in the campaign files to see if there was anyway I could reset things and I got to the cache loading sections and I found a way to rig it so that it wouldn't find the old characters in the cache but then I realized I would have to edit it for every time a hero is first loaded which would take forever considering how long it takes my shabby system to save each map file. So I tried to delete the game cache entirely but I can't figure out where it is. I see that a trigger is creating a game cache named "wos1.w3v" but that file doesn't exist in my warcraft folder. I try deleting the "SorceriaBookx.w3p" files but that doesn't help.

Can anyone more knowledgeable help me with this?

Making a new profile (being that player name for singleplayer) in the Warcraft 3 profiles and then playing the campaign under that profile should be enough to start completely anew since the game caches are tied to profiles.

Next time you want to do this you can go to the bonus chapter in book too and choose new game instead of saving items and stats.
