Hey guys. Name's Matt. I've been playing Starcraft since shortly after it came out, on and off. I finally got SC 2 in 2013, liked it, but the weirdness around the custom maps and the arcade or whatever it is turned me off and I haven't touched it since. Fun game, but Starcraft 1 is where my heart is. I even bought a boxed copy off Ebay recently to replace the one that mysteriously no longer works. I have the digital version, but I like boxes and manuals and all that.

Long story short, 10 years ago, when I was a senior year in high school I built a sort of complex UMS map, it was fun, but I could never get the ending to work correctly. I'm going to try and redo it. Figure I would sign on here, download some maps, and get back into map making.

Welcome to the community! I'm sure you'll be able to sort out the ending to your map successfully this time around, and on the off-chance you run into similar issues, don't be afraid to ask us for help! It makes us feel important and not like useless old fossils.

A lot of us had problems getting into SC2; it just didn't have the same charm as the original game. But the few of us that did get into it have done some pretty cool things with its powerful editor!

Be sure you install the game using the alphanumeric digital key, rather than the numeric physical key. There's a security vulnerability in the SC1 protocol that exposes your hashed CD-key to others, and a malicious user/bot could steal your CD-key via bruteforce methods if you're using the weaker (physical) key.

I never knew about that. Do I need to reinstall the game, or it's all right to simply change the CD-key?

If you never use battle.net I don't think it's a concern.

Welcome to SEN Matt, hope you enjoy your stay. A lot of us are quietly working on stuff, so stay a while and keep your eyes peeled. If you need assistance or feedback, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks everybody! I never do multiplayer, so not too worried about the CD key. I also have the digital version, so if the disc copy doesn't work I'm not too worried.

Corbo shouted: Though those work with external plug ins; it would be like asking SI to include memory edits from FG into scmdraft xD
unfortunately they are all pretty incomplete, it seems if what i want is to be achieved it'll need to be made with whack instead of something compatible with gptp
