How to use/Make PATCH.mix

Hello!

Welcome to the Patch.mix tutorial. This tutorial will teach you how to use your own patch.mix and how it works.

Note: You can name the patch any way you want, it doesn't require any indication in script or anywhere, it will read it as long as it has .mix in the end ;)

Blank mix file will be uploaded down below, so you can download and practice on it! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask them!


1) To begin with, you must know that .mix is. .mix is a "MPQ" file that has lower priority than a map or inside files, however it can be used as maps extension, thus you can't overwrite files in the map, but you can add them if they are not present in the map.

2) In order to explain you how the map works I'll use my own map as an example.

3) So on the screenshot you can see my map and an empty .mix file (350 kb is used as a header and so war3 would read it)

4) Now let's see the Sound files in my map. As you see they are in the core of my map. The full path to one of the sounds will be. Sounds\Characters\Akame\AkameQ.mp3. The rest are the same.

Posted Image

5) Now let's export the sounds and delete the folder from the map.

Posted Image

6) As you see there is no folder in my map anymore, so now we can move on to the next step.

Posted Image

7) Open up the blank .mix file. As you see there is nothing inside, but don't worry that's how it should be ;)

Posted Image

8) Add your folder in the same way as it was in your map, so as you see on screenshot it's in the core of the .mix file. Warcraft 3 will read mix patch as if it's a MPQ, so sounds that are called by trigger in the map, will work. You should consider .mix as a continuation of your map, as it goes along with it!

Posted Image

9) As you see now, size of .mix file increased and it stores the files in it. Now you just need to put it where your warcraft 3.exe or MPQ files are and it will work!

You can put anything you like in mix, but the core files of map (Actually even them, but it will lag as hell) Basically you can put anything you want in it from the map.

It doesn't take much to understand it, maybe its over simplicity is what makes it "hard"? :)

Well it's not hard, however I forgot to mention that you need to track your listfile. Or every time make a new patch.mix, will add this tomorrow.

All it takes is download it and put into a warcraft 3 core file. But yes without it models won't display :)

@Bandit well you can just put non-needed files (Like sounds and LS Texture) in it to save a lot of space making it optional and keep putting the model in the map till it's full

Too cool! So when did people discover .mix files? I never heard about them back in my day. Is it something Blizzard added in a recent patch? Either way this sounds like this could have solved all my problems back in the day. *sigh*

Either way this means I could make maps with infinite stuff now so long as I have everyone who plays with me download the mix file too. :thumbs-up:

Back in that days chinese tool to modify game.dll was used.

Mix file was created by some guy, I don't remember his name, but yes you can add as much stuff as you want into mix :)
