ScmDraft 2 - Alternative starcraft map editor


#60

It works! Thanks a lot!:+1:t3:


#61

If you can reproduce the original error I would be interested in the cause. I suspect it has to do with the compression setting you are selecting, perhaps the wav compression code from '97 doesn’t like some modern sound files?


#62

As I’ve documented here: http://pr0nogo.wikidot.com/rs-misc

Starcraft can use 8-bit audio but it won’t be compressed. The game works best with the following configurations:
Mono 32000hz
Stereo 22050hz

This likely changed with the remaster, but may be relevant if the offending audio files were in a “nonstandard” format.

After recent patch in starcraft, SCM2 is not working. Plx check it


#65

I have - the latest patch deleted a required file, I have sent details to blizzard in order to get that change reverted, but it is 3 AM in LA so it may not be done before monday.

As a work around you can use the MPQs from the staredit download and point scmdraft at those, until it is fixed.

EDIT: This is what the profile should look like, with the path changed to match: http://www.stormcoast-fortress.net/Irregularies/Images/WorkaroundProfile.png


#66

It still won’t open certain maps. Thanks though for this workaround.


#67

Scmdraft cannot open protected maps, but should be able to open anything staredit can.


#68

The map I tried to open is not protected. I never protected this map.

It’s called Diplomacy or War East (version 025) and I uploaded it to Gamemaps and Staredit.

The error code I get is

Could not load a selected map
(hr=0x80070057)


#69

I can open the version available on staredit just fine.


#70

but Scmdraft 2 cannot open it using the MPQ’s of Staredit.


#71

It can - that is the configuration I am using. Make sure you are using all four MPQs, and that they are in the correct order.


#72

Oh wow! Thank you so much! Saved my life


#73

I have uploaded a temporary build that works around the issue in the latest patch here. Use this until the game is fixed.


#74

Not much, but I donated to SCM Draft. Thank you for maintaining your program over the years.

Loved the program ever since I started using it. I can see improvements as time goes by. Love it.

It’s so good even blizzard is letting you take the reigns on the map making editor lol.

Sadly I was too little to show my support or donate before, but now I can!

Thank you again. (Please don’t disappear.)


#75

Everyone give the guy who made SCMdraft a round of applause, and a monetary donation. This guy has done great work, I’m very impressed. Blizzard is lucky to be associated with him.


#76

Yeah, he’s done awesome work! It’s just a shame that Blizzard screws up his fixes for SCMDraft every time they release a new patch.


#77

Thanks, I appreciate it =)


#78

Any chance you can make protected maps load? It’s really hard to reach, download an unprotector (and many of them don’t work vs. specific map) and unprotect every map individually.


#79

I’ve never found a map I couldn’t unprotect using OSMAP2, maybe it’ll help you out. https://mega.nz/#F!a8xkwILB!iGeoIM12wrk5bY9sqqWuFw

I will echo the sentiment though. Map protection is pointless and only stifles the growth of mappers who don’t know how to breach it. At least showing a specific error saying ‘map is protected’ would be nice, but not sure if that is technically possible.
