How to [download | install | configure] JNGP
By moyack. 2016

Hello fellow members: I come here with a very quick and direct to the point tutorial about how Download, Install and Configure Jass New Gen Pack from wc3modding.info.


What is JNGP??

JNGP is the acronym for JASS NEW GENERATION PACK, which is a tool that expands the possibilities of the traditional WC3 World Editor and allow us to code and develop stuff that normally would have implied more effort or tedious work. If you want to check all the features of JNGP you can visit the current and updated link: http://wc3modding.info/4263/the-jass-newgen-pack-jngp-2-0/

Download JNGP

In order to download JNGP you have to follow this link:

This pack is compressed using the format 7z, in order to extract it you should have the 7zip installer which can be downloaded from the official site http://www.7-zip.org/
Because Google detects this tool as malware, the compression process has been modified to double compression in 7Zip. (7z packs inside a 7z pack). This increase the file a little but hopefully will override this false (and annoying) warning.

Install JNGP

Installing is as easy as 1, 2, 3. You only need to extract the package and install it where you want. I'll show you the most direct way to do it.
  • Install 7zip to open properly this package. After you've installed this software, please open 7zip and select Tools > Options... and in the system tab select all the file extensions.
  • Open in the explorer where you downloaded your JNGP compressed file.
  • Because this pack now comes in an over-compressed way, you should follow the steps in this way:

    • Select the JNGP compressed file and right click over it. You'll see the following menu:
    • Then goto to the folder "JNGP" folder where the files were extracted. Here you'll see a bunch of files with strange extensions :)
      There, you right click in the file JNGP_2XX.7z.001, and extract the file.
    • After this extraction, the final folder "JNGP_2XX" could be moved into a desired place and renamed in the way you consider convenient.


Configure JNGP
If you're in Windows 7 or the horrible vista (could it be possible?? :o ), please open the executable files as administrator.

If you see for any chance an antivirus message, do not worry. JNGP add functionality to WE by injecting in memory the additional menus, this trick is used by some virus and trojans and antivirus recognize this behavior in a preventive way. If that's your case, just add NewGen WE.exe in your antivirus White List (More info).
  • Open the JNGP folder
  • If it's the first... first... first time you start this tool, you should run the "we.bat" file. This one should be used to set for the first time (again) the JNGP files. Double click it in order to start it. You'll see a console start and then the WC3 World Editor starting. If you've updated this tool, then simply run NewGen WE.exe:

    If everything goes well, it should have opened WE with the menu extended:
  • And that's all!! Let's start modding!!!  :P

Final words

I hope this tutorial can give you a whole idea about how to start with this pack. If you have any questions or comments, please Go ahead :)

Bye!!
