That's not how the extractor works. If you put the assets.bin in the editor folder and run the resourcextractor.exe, you'll see the extrator run for a with that black screen then it'll disappear and extract the whole assets.bin which is default. If you want to extract .hwm files, you can try making a shortcut of the ResourceExtractor.exe . Put whatever .hwm compiled maps inside your editor folder, then right click your shortcut.

Where it says Target, at the end of it, put map campaign.hwm

I used this example for the campaign. You can use whatever .hwm files you want but replace the campaign.hwm with whatever .hwm file you are using.

I attached 2 images below to show you how it works.

Just change the campaign.hwm part with whatever map you're trying to use and make sure it's inside the editor folder too.

Phantom is also quite right.  Your extractor should work but you'll have to follow either one of the two methods.

Oh okay i got it, thank you guys so very much i really do appreciate the help.

FYI this is like the easiest way to do it

I'm having trouble with the lighting, as whenever I change the lighting nothing happens, the background stays black and anything I place are red pixels, no matter what I do to change the lighting it still stays the exact same colors, please help I've tried fixing it but nothing works  :'(

Creative Workshop I downloaded a map, XXX.hwm.
