it seems like keeping the compatibility with wc3 classic is a huge problem. wouldnt it be better for the whole project to drop compatibility (except for the option to import old maps)?
almost all wc3 fans are gonna get reforged anyway, sooo down the line, say 12 months or something, the whole fuzz about having classic and reforged crossplay possible will be kinda irrelevant and we’re stuck with lots of complicated issues.
you clearly put alot of effort into making it possible, but still it seems to be extremely hard and prone to bugs and limitations.
maybe it is time to evaluate the situation anew? i certainly wouldnt be mad about “reforged only”, as aoe 2 definitive also isnt compatible with the old version, but makes up for it with lots of improvements.
id imagine coping with the engine would be easier, if you wouldnt have to support two games simultaniously.
should we report errors with maps in the forums (+ download link at e.g. epicwar)? can we have embedded pictures enabled in the beta forums please? its such a hassle to do the stuff with links. thanks
love the progress you guys do! keep it up
