The best PUD editor, bar none! Give mages dragon breath, make bridges that both land units and sea units can cross, make caves that flying units can't enter, use the swamp terrain and all the 2x heroes, and select among nearly a hundred AI types! 

Be sure to extract with subdirectories.


Among the first things, Daniel Lemberg reverse-engineered the Warcraft II map file (*.pud) format and created the first third-party map editor, War2xEd, which could do numerous things the bundled map editor could not do, such as editing unit attributes. Although Daniel Lemberg did not make the source code for War2xEd public, he did publish the complete Warcraft II map file format, which led to a wealth of new tools. More importantly, Blizzard began to use War2xEd internally, and it influenced them to bundle a feature-rich editor with their immensely popular game StarCraft.
