Here is a little Java remake of Warcraft 1 to play while waiting for War1gus.

nice...

Here's a work in progress that's worth checking out as well, it mixes war1 and war2 stuff:

Hey this is a neat little number! Don't know how they got all the sprites out of the game files though??? I like how they've adopted the warcraft 2/wargus control system too...warcraft 1 was full manual - select a unit, press move button/press M key, then left click where you want them to go...so tedious...

I should pull my finger out and start making interface pieces/coding new lua file to emulate the original game missions...at least that's one kind of coding I CAN do. Once that's all done, it will just be a simple fact of choosing "Warcraft 1 Human/Orc Campaign", instead of Tides of Darkness/Beyond the Dark Portal Campaigns...Easy :D

You can use Wardraft with the Warcraft 1 knowledge base to export stuff, though the war1 knowledge base is not complete, the latest version lets you access the mission briefing animations of the orcs and humans sitting at the tables. The main problem is that the Warcraft 1 palettes need to be re-created with the proper RGB's at the proper palette index numbers to convert the Warcraft 1 GFX's to BMP's with the right colors, someone has already recreated the unit sprites, icons and buildings here: http://www.spriters-resource.com/pc_computer/warcraft/. That leaves the tilesets to deal with. The old Warcraft 1 map editor made by blizzard gives you access to 1 or 2 of the tilesets which you can take a screen capture of. It doesn't have the dungeon tileset though. I was once able to make a dungeon map on a forest tileset so there were dungeon creatures crossing bridges and stuff. hmmm.. I wonder if that old blizzard map editor could access the dungeon tileset by switching the data in wardraft first...

It's not ideal, but you can get the tiles from these map pictures (I put them in a 16x16 grid in GIMP and get the tiles that way).

Id like to try out the wc 1 java remake at op, however couldnt access www.b3dgs.com , for some reason it keeps giving err_connection_reset and the download links tried point towards there.

Can i have an alternate mirror, very please ?

If you are sill interested in playing Warcraft 1, war1gus (https://github.com/Wargus/war1gus) now works well, including support for campaign play and the editor for at least the forest tileset.
