I formated my PC and Draft doesn't want to work anymore. Even redownloaded it. Fatal error: failed loading primary mpq (stardat.mpq)

Yea I know I have to reinstall SC or something. But I didn't after last format and it worked, don't remember how though. You see, my SC is seriously cracked so I can play on and stuff, I don't know if I can crack it again this good. Did it long time ago. There must be a way around. :D

I wanted to PM SI, but his inbox is always full you know.

You need to reinstall SC. No way around it. All editors need to read stardat.mpq, broodat.mpq, and patch_rt.mpq, or they don't know anything about what units exist in SC or so on.

Under edit profile you can manualy set your stardat.mpq, broodat.mpq, and patch_rt.mpq.

Yea, I just found that out! I just had to enter the SC folder location. I knew I could avoid reinstalling. :D Thanks!

IMO the correct solution is:

Go buy a legitimate copy of the game and stop ripping Blizzard off.

Ripping Blizzard off? You kidding me? They couldn't care less since WoW is out. I rather donate the money to SEN, which I did.

We can't explain the universe, just describe it; and we don't know whether our theories are true, we just know they're not wrong. >Harald Lesch

Although your problem is already solved I wanted to let you know that there's reg keys and patchers findable with google that add the necessary installation information of sc into the registry so you don't need to reinstall.

i meant in sc

Pr0nogo -- a scattered army also reaches the enemy much sooner than a few control groups in a conga line

Pr0nogo -- in sc2 units collide into one another, in war3 formations are permanently on

Pr0nogo -- scattering your army gives way better damage absorption for one, especially vs aoe

Pr0nogo -- bwapi's been around for years

NudeRaider -- since when does BWAPI exist?

Pr0nogo shouted: war3 and sc2 give you no precision
not sure what'S that supposed to mean... I mean sure can push each other, but how is the alternative - scattering your army all over the map at choke points - any better?
[06:16 am]
NudeRaider -- or to go around areas, scout bases and so on.

NudeRaider -- I mostly use it to repair stuff without having to check it all the time

lol. Yes. But units make a short pause on each waypoint, making it not particularly useful to get somewhere faster.
