So here's a little something i'm working on, allows you to spend less time loading up starcraft and more time on your maps.

Setup:
    - Right click properties of zip, hit unblock, then unzip
    - Create a shortcut to ScQuickLaunch.exe, add the following arguments to the very end of the target line: -fm -zt -nl -w EXAMPLE
    - Run the shortcut and enjoy!

The Arguments:
-ke (killExplorer) kills windows explorer and restarts it when starcraft's closed
-de (ddemulate) runs StarCraft with the ddemulate command (not compatible with wmode or custom start)
-fm (fastMenus) makes menus go by faster (credit to bwapi for addresses)
-zt (zeroTimer) automatically zeros the countdown timer in game lobbies (DO NOT USE ON MULTIPLAYER)
-nl (noLat) continuously forces the LAN latency level (THIS IS CHEATING IN MULTIPLAYER (though only a great antihack program will notice))
-w (windowed) attempts to auto-run wmode via chaoslauncher
-cs (customStart) runs the batch code found in CustomStarter.bat to start starcraft (so you can run something like scloader2b)
-ps (postLoad) runs the batch code found in PostLoad.bat to do stuff right after the starcraft window opens up (load antihacks perhaps)
-rm (runMap) (NOT YET COMPLETE) runs the map given as the next argument, for later integration with Chkdraft

Let me know any errors you encounter, please make sure you hit unblock on the zip or on everything you extracted!

The fast menus are insane, as is the instant-timer. xD Can't wait for the -rm. Now finish CHKDraft. :P

EUDGen can generate detection triggers for this. :awesome:

Can the windowed mode be configured? I like to use ScLoader2b instead of Chaos Launcher.

Also, apparently I need MSVCP110.dll.

Local detection triggers :P

My windows mode is an ugly registry hack into chaos launcher, i suppose you can "configure" it by making your own Chaoslauncher.reg file" :P

But anyways, now you can put your own starcraft launching code in CustomStarter.bat and use the -cs flag, ScQuickLaunch will promptly hook on and do the rest of its magic.

Woops, recompiled statically.

Need to figure out fairly exhaustive ways of (addresses for) detecting where in the menu/game/hiscore sequence a user is; all the other components I have written (in EUPTest and the current Chkdraft plugin system).

I may have missed it in the OP, but is there a function for this to load custom .exe or .mpq components, so that we can run a mod using some of the other options (notably windowed mode)?

that's what -ps is for, can launch an exe by placing the path to it in PostLoad.bat and setting the -ps flag

Quick update: running with -w will now include EUD-Enabler, expect this program not to work with SC remastered as it was built for 1.16.

well I might have found 1 bug for them to fix - some maps load on 32 bit, but not on 64 bit game version

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?
