    I still play W3 dota and I wanted to make an app that will be focus only on items so new players has and easy way to memorize it, now on the server I'm playing, a few days ago a new map has come, 6.88t and it came with a lot of change, one of them are the new items, but the only problem is that i don't know how to get the new items icon from the new map. Can anybody tell me how to get those items icons? i tried to load the new map on the world editor hoping to get something but everytime I try to open the map a fatal error just appears.

    you need to use program called MPQ editor, but it will still be pain in ass to find the icons because the archive contains tons of files. it's easier to just screenshot them from game i beleave.

    is the new map actually stable, by the way?
