PUD_SCS==================================================== PUD_SCS -- `Starting Conditions Set' by (c) Vladi Belperchinov-Shabanski "Cade" 1998 ==================================================== WHAT IS IT?: --------------- PUD_SCS is tool for setting up starting conditions of a PUD file(s) from the command line. It allows to (re)define starting amount of gold,lumber,oil for all players, gold amount in all mines and oil in all oil patches. With PUD_SCS You can also change terrain type (`swamp' terrain supported as well). To avoid version mismatch this tool allows to change (back) PUD version number (if WarCraft doesn't show the PUD in the file box). USAGE: --------------- General usage is: `PUD_SCS options pud_file(s)' To see usage and options descriptions run PUD_SCS *without* command line parameters. If You have problems with PUD_SCS call the author. (see address below) EXAMPLES: --------------- Change all mines to 300000 gold: PUD_SCS -i300000 *.pud Change start gold/lumber/oil to 2000/1000/2000: PUD_SCS -g2000 -l1000 -o2000 dim_wet.pud Change terrain to `swamp' but keep old version of the PUD file: PUD_SCS -t3 -v11 norun*.pud
PUD_CFG==================================================== PUD_CFG -- `PUD Configuration Load/Save' by (c) Vladi Belperchinov-Shabanski "Cade" 1998 ==================================================== WHAT IS IT?: --------------- PUD_CFG is tool for extracting and replacing PUD configuration to/from a text file including restrictions, starting conditions, terrain, version, descriptions, units properties & flags, upgrade properties and more... With PUD_CFG You can easy create configuration which can be applied any time to any pud file with just one command. USAGE: --------------- General usage is: PUD_CFG pudfile.pud cfg.txt command where `command' is: -- `get' ( extract PUD configuration to the cfg.txt text file ) -- `put' ( replace PUD configuration from the cfg.txt text file ) The common usage is to invoke `get' command, edit cfg.txt file and then invoke `put' command. However You should not create cfg.txt file from the scratch! When edit cfg.txt file always consult with `pudspec.txt' file that is included in the package. If You have problems w. using PUD_CFG contact the author (see address below)
WARNING: If You got message: `No DPMI host' you
have to download CWSDPMI.ZIP from
and put CWSDPMI.EXE somewhere in your path or in the
current directory.However if the problem still exist
These are some of my favourite PUDs. All of them are for
multiplayer mode and are tested in real battle impacts :).
(PUD directory details can be found
Some of these are fixed `built-in' PUDs from the WarCraft II. Others are
WarMaker based (see links below).
And the rest are `handmade' by me.
