Hello.I need help on a problem with Scm Draft 2.0 and it's "Save As" feature.I've been using Scm Draft for quite a while now,and i always used "Save As" because using the save shortcut can make a map corrupt,but one day i used this "Save As" feature and it said "Something Bad Has Happened".Scm Draft crashed and never saved the map.This isn't a map problem because it did the same thing for every map i try to "Save As".I can't use any other save method except for "Save As" or Scm Draft will crash."Save As" only crashes Scm Draft when i try to overwrite a map.I CAN use "Save As" to save my maps w/out Scm Draft crashing but i have to delete the current map I'm trying to save over -OR- save it as a completely different name.I don't know if when i saved a map as a Raw Starcraft Map (*.chk) had anything to do with this problem.Yes I have the NON-Corrupt version of Scm Draft.I can live with this problem but it gets really annoying.Please Help.

I didn't answer at first because I have no idea what could be causing this. But since nobody else seems to be able to help I'll give you some pointers.

My guess is you're using Win7? Because there have been several smaller issues been reported regarding scmdraft and win7.
Possibly it has something to do with the way win7 handles files and program's access to it. I don't possess win7, so I can't give you detailed information but there's a security feature that prevents programs from writing/changing files on your hdd.
Maybe try to deactivate this.

Otherwise use win7 pro or better and run scmdraft in a virtual win xp 32 bit environment.

Try deleting the backup database. I turned it off altogether because it would get unreasonably huge and start crashing my maps... the file should be in the scmdraft installation folder.

Yeah about that...for some reason every time i exit ScmDraft it's gives me that error "Something Bad Has Happened" and when i tell it NOT to save a diagnostic file it saves in my recycling bin :|
And Yes I have the option "Enable Back-Up" turned off as well
And i am using Windows XP Professional BTW

O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- iirc the last byte in the TRIG is for more flags or something

Wormer -- also, when I wear cartoon it turns off the dynamic lighting and doesn't turn it on when I switch back, maybe that kind of incompatibilities were the problem

Wormer shouted: Pr0nogo THAT why it's impossible to switch that skin on the fly
My guess is GPU memory constraints

Suicidal Insanity -- I think its 27 and padding

Wormer shouted: or the guide ( is wrong there and it should be u8[27] ?

Wormer -- anybody knows why chk format has a list of 27 player group IDs (, but TRIG section uses an array of 28 elements => suppose the last byte is padding as well?
[08:57 pm]
Wormer -- but it's actually possible to switch between cartoon and classic skin which is cool
[08:52 pm]
Wormer -- Pr0nogo
Pr0nogo shouted: they coded a new system in for it
THAT why it's impossible to switch that skin on the fly
[08:51 pm]
Pr0nogo -- i don't remember if it was because the old system was limited to only 2, or they didn't know how to increase it, or what
