Forums: Index Other Warcraft games Can anyone help with a Warcraft 3 problem?

Gentlepeople of WowWiki, I have a problem with a few of my WC3 maps. They seem to be glitched in some way, they can be viewed in the world editor, and seen by opening folders, but in the actual game they seem to dissapear. Help? IconSmall ArcaneGolemMantriox/T/C 01:17, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Are these maps official or fan-created?Dakovski (talk) 05:25, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
The map files may be outdated; I've ran into the same problem myself. Downloading newer versions of the maps may help. --User:Gourra/Sig2 05:42, 8 May 2009 (UTC)
There seems to be some dangerous problem with custom Warcraft III maps. Read this article: (talk) 05:59, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

I have the answer. It's just because... the map names are too long. Yeah.

I discovered that because I organize maps in folders, and in the deepest folders I couldn't read some maps.

If you have them at custom folders, change the names to shorters ones. If not, change the map name.
