Using BW Tech in SC original maps help

To be precise, I found a weird bug while trying to give the Restoration spell to the Queen. To do this, I moved the research button to the Queen's Nest, the use-spell button to the Queen (replacing the position occupied by the Parasite button), and changed the requirements as needed in FireGraft. Now, everything works fine in Brood War mode...however, when I am in vanilla StarCraft mode, three things happen:

(1) After I research the tech once, the research button is still there. I can research it again, and again, and again...WTF this is not an upgrade, I checked that
(2) No matter how many times I "research" Restoration, my Queens cannot use it (the button is greyed out, as though it hasn't been researched)
(3) The funny thing is, I modified the original Zerg AI script to research Restoration...which it does, over and over and over!

Apparently this is a problem only within original mode, because everything works as intented while in Brood War mode. Is there a way to circumvent this?

TLDR: Is there a way to use Restoration, tech research and all, in vanilla StarCraft?

Since restoration is a brood war spell, I assume vanilla maps won't reference it correctly, because technically they have no idea what the fuck it is. So I would think you can't.

Well dang I guess. Thanks for telling me this, though!

NudeRaider shouted: FaRTy1billion I'm wondering: Does extended anything (like place extended units for supply) count as euds (i'd guess no)? Do these overflows still work?
I'm pretty sure all extended units and extended players were fixed
