Importing .wavs easily

SCMDraft's .wav import tool is primitive at best, and StarEdit won't open many maps without changing shit around (team colour, unit/doodad placements, etc.). I need an efficient method of mass importing 100+ wavs at a time without compromising by using either of these two programmes (unless some older version of SCMDraft has this feature? but I doubt that is the case).

I was told to check out StarForge but haven't had any luck making it work so I don't know if that's a viable alternative. Is there a third-party tool for this?

You could create a new map in Staredit, import all the wavs, then import all the rest of your map via SC Map Importer / Exporter.

A windows XP VM might prove useful to get Starforge to work.

Not sure how far ChkDraft is in terms of adding wavs.

Not yet implemented, though I'll make a note to have multi-select and import from MPQs.

I'll try the map importer. No dice with starforge even with WinXP.

Thanks ajf

Why not just add them with an MPQ editor?

Doesn't work.

You sure about that? You should be able to add the wav's to the mpq and then in SCMDraft just add a string for each wav (which is the path of the wav in the mpq) and reference that string in your triggers. That should work, though the editors may not list the wav's in the normal way.

Messing with strings crashes SCMdraft for me most times but the bigger issue is that I don't use trigedit, I use the GUI.

Ultraviolet shouted: martosss So you've had issues with maps that were previously playable having issues with the latest patch as well? I was play testing one of my creations a couple days ago and it crashed the game, something it has never done before. Has me feeling kind of concerned about playability of custom content going forward :/
Yes, I definitely had issues with maps crashing or dropping people in the start(Zerg Special forces SE)... Also Spellsword RPG was unplayable last time I tried it a week ago. I might try it again now, seeing that the KotK map is fixed. Also there are many sniper maps that are broken. I unlocked and fixed Sniper rabbit - again the locking caused it to crash so I guess it would be playable like the KotK. but I don't know about the others. I personally feel bad about strings messing up many UMS maps currently ... and Spellsword - that RPG is epic

you kinda missed those minor details about how fundamental rights are baked into democratic systems so you actually have power to change the system (to whatever degree you wanna argue), whereas in other systems your only option is "no u", aka it's not an illusion of choice

Ultraviolet -- what are you trying to accomplish here?

sraw531 -- similar to how people farm scarabs.
[08:50 pm]
sraw531 -- was toying with the thought of trying to get a computer to continuously make nexi in the corner of the map and have triggers remove it occasionally, but I honestly don't know how to do that.

sraw531 shouted: is there a way to create using triggers a building that is under construction? (Especially protoss, for multiple reasons)
afaik this is not possible
[08:46 pm]
sraw531 -- though ~3400 units on map is also an improvement considering reavers are 11 and carriers are 9 units.

GGmano shouted: Yea see it describet as ccmu fix
I think my favorite part about ccmu fix is probably the 400 weapon limit. 100 is so low, considering 10 valks is 80 of that.

Fair enough, random crashes are always scary though :P
