So I downloaded the CW2Editor from the site linked from this board, but the .zip file I got (CW2Editor-0439) doesn't have any install or exe files, so I cant use the editor!
Can someone please direct me to an actual version?

File here isn't zip, it's adobe air installer file. https://knucklecracker.com/creeperworld2/mapeditor.php

Can you confirm zip you got was from there?

Well, then you must have done something wrong on the download. On the site, it's a .air file.



When I download it, it wants to be saved as a .air file.

Of relevance is thios on the download page:

After you download the map editor, just double-click to install it. The editor requires Adobe AIR, but you will already have this installed since you already have the game installed.

overwrite the suggested .zip with .air.

.air is actually a .zip with all the files the AIR installer needs.

It's a .zip folder, not file.

I'm not pranking you, unless someone is also pranking me. I click on the link, I get a .zip folder, which when uncompressed doesn't have an .exe or .air file.

rename it to .air. Regardless of whether it is a folder or a file. (and incidentally, you called it a file in your first post. )

I think - and I can't be sure, not having done it - that it will, somehow. If that is the case, then K75's instructions were quite clear. If not, then I'm also at a loss.
