alright
so
i went to a convenience store
and i bought
four things
and i added up the prices in my head so i would know how much to pay
and it came out to 7.11
and then went i went to the register
i saw that the clerk had pressed the multiplication key instead of the addition key when calculating the price
and i was about to say something
but
lo and behold
the answer came out to the same thing
what were the prices of the four items?

I tried and tried and could not solve 7.11 = abcd = a + b + c + d. Does anyone want to take a stab at this challenge?

Hint:
711 can be factored into 3*3*79

Thanks for spending five seconds on a calculator to provide that information.

Oh yeah, that was my bad that wasn't even helpful. I just glanced at the problem and didn't actually solve it, I just assumed the answer would have something to do with the factors of 711. :D

jjf28 shouted: the map is playable on both 1.16.1 and SC:R, this would just be straight up unprotecting
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?
