The map editor is built into the game and even has a manual (text document).

Hi Uberwire, welcome to Pharaoh Heaven.

Cleopatra or any version of Pharaoh except for the first (version 1.0) should have the mission editor. It would be available from the first menu, which also has choices like Play Pharaoh, visit a website, or Greatest Families.

The first version of Pharaoh (version 1.0) did not have the mission editor. If that's what you have, you can obtain the mission editor by installing the Enhancement Pack (to version 1.1 or 1.2) from our Downloads.

Greetings

I open it up and then it says that the Pharaoh folder could not be found.
Then i put it inside the game dir, it says the same thing again, but then there's an installation guide...
I select where to install it (In the pharaoh folder/game dir), then It says:

"The File D:\blah\Pharaoh\Pharaoh.exe is not a valid previous version and could not be upgraded"

I don't know which version do i have

If you don't know which version you have, load the game and load any save. Then go to the Help menu at the top and select About, it should tell you what version you have. You need at least 1.2 to get the Mission Editor, it's not available pre-1.2.

Do you have the GOG.com version of Pharaoh by any chance?

No. The mission editor came with version 1.1.

No Brugle, you are wrong. Read the patch notes, it's in 1.2.

EDIT: Checked, it's 1.2 for the English version. Since only one patch was made for non-English versions, they report 1.1. However, since the English version is what people will likely be using, the patch is for 1.2 to get the mission editor. Obviously, this is superfluous if the OP has Pharaoh Gold (Gog.com or CD copy)

I'm afraid It only shows the credits... I simply clicked on Help and About.. it was "About Pharaoh" and just the credits and no version number was there. I don't know if It is a GOG version.. , I can give you the download link of it since It's the only normal one without + Cleopatra i found.

link removed

Uberwire,

The enhancement packs stored in our Downloads are only for Pharaoh published by Sierra, and won't work for any others. I doubt that you can find an enhancement pack (either version 1.1 or version 1.2) that would work with your Pharaoh. (By the way, your Pharaoh seems to be of dubious legality, at least in the US.)

My suggestion is to buy Pharaoh/Cleopatra from GOG.com. (GOG.com frequently has some games on sale, often for at least half off. Now and then that includes Pharaoh/Cleopatra.)

Thank you all for the useful infos, I'm not going to buy it or anything and It's pretty obvious that there is no other way, so yeah, thanks...
