- How to publish custom maps on the public server of StarCraft II -
- This tutorial has been made for the Patch 13 users -

Quote
1) Open Galaxy Editor
2) File -> Preferences -> Battle.net
3) Replace host to: "us-beta.logon.battle.net" (without the quotes)
4) Your account is the email you use to log into http://www.battle.net/
5) "OK"
6) Open your map (finished product please?)
7) Map -> Game Variants -> Add
8) Add an icon (any) and fill all fields
9) -> Game Type: Category = Other, Mode = Other
10) Still under "Game Type": fill the 4 fields with something different than the default values you'll see (you can also edit the "Attributes" to customize properly your game)
11) "OK"
12) File -> Publish, press "Log In..."
13) Again, your account is the email used to connect on http://www.battle.net/ (or StarCraft II's beta)
14) "OK" (make sure you have selected all the desired options)
15) Connect on Battle.net
16) Multi player -> Custom games -> Create a game
17) "My Published" (in the little scroll-list)
18) Select your map + press "Create game"
19) Change the "Category" for the other choice than "Other" ("Mode" should auto-change)
20) Press "Open to public", situated to the right of "Game lobby"

There you go! =D
The 7th step (in red) is different for a Melee map. Simply press "Generate Defaults" (right under "Add") and select the 'default', you want for your map.
Some people say that you -have- to set your map to 'Unlocked' in order to publish it properly.

You may have to leave your map unlocked as well for the above to work.



None.

Well, my map got stolen during the very first moments of maps being published (stolen in the sense that the guy published the map without telling he's not author :P).

Btw, Yoshi, are you sure we -must- have the map Unlocked?

I'm not. When was following a tutorial on battle.net forums, the guy said you did. I never tried locking it because as you know I think locking maps is a terrible idea for the map making community as a whole.

I merely suggested it as a "if the above doesn't work, you can try this as well".

I made the Game Mode as private but unlocked. I Can't change it to public while hosting a game why?

A map my friend wants to publish says that the name isn't available no matter what I put in. I've set it to unlocked, public. What do?

You probably either want it to be "None" or "Public" and use the Party feature to host it privately. ;o

It's probably the word-filter (censor). Try to look for words like "suck", etc.
And by "name", do you mean the map's name? If so, try to look if it is already being used.

Moose shouted: martosss IIRC, the plan was to go 64-bit only eventually so they're interested in differences between the versions
well I might have found 1 bug for them to fix - some maps load on 32 bit, but not on 64 bit game version

sraw531 shouted: I'm pretty sure you would move the building away at some point. When you do so, you can give it to someone else. I was thinking nexi because its possible you could encourage the computer to expand to a specific spot
you can’t move buildings afaik

Moose -- martosss
martosss shouted: jjf28 OK, I have 1 more question - are you using 32 bit SC:R or 64 bit ? In game settings there's an option to switch to 32, is it checked? I just tried hosting the map with 64-bit SC:R and it failed... I ticked the option to use 32 bit SC:R => it worked and map was hosted. So I guess the issue still exists for 64 bit SC:R ? I also tried calling a friend and he couldn't see the map when he entered the lobby. Weird, I might have to report this to Blizzard?
