I have been in touch with the maker of Mania Poker defense about translating the map to english since it is very difficult to play in korean.
He told me that I can translate the map but he does not have an unprotected version anymore.
After trying all the map unprotectors(Osmap1&2, SMC 2.8, UU2, ect) I have been unable to unlock the map.

The map maker told me that he locked the map with Starcraft map locker project 2.0. [SMLC]

I have proof that the map maker said it is ok for me to unlock and modify this map then reprotect it.
If proof is needed let me know and I will give it.

Is there any way to unlock this map? Can I send it to someone here with the ability to do so?


Note: If this is not allowed that is fine but please let me know if it is even possible to unlock this map and im not just wasting my time.

I haven't been able to unlock any Korean maps. I don't know what they're doing to the maps, but nothing seems to work in my experience.

SMC 2.87 just crashes, same with osmap ect.

You cant even use trigger viewer or pull the scenario.chk from the file.

I managed to get a shell from a a replay converter but thats only the locations/terrain/units.
There are no triggers or custom sounds. And even then I had to open and save the file with osmap2

ᴄʜᴇᴇsᴇ ɪᴛ!

why can't you pull scenario.chk? seems like if the mpq is corrupted you wouldn't be able to play the map in starcraft.

Idk why I cant. It seems its a feature of this new map protection.
When I use winmpq to open the map it just crashes. Using mpq editor will open the file but it just shows everything as being corrupted.

If you send me the map, I have been able to open MPQ protections and may be able to help by doing it manually.

Can you upload the protected map here? I'll submit it to the author of StormLib/MPQ Editor so that he can fix his library.

Would you be willing to work on translating other korean maps for other SEN users to play? There is quite a high demand for maps to be translated, specifically some of the top tier Korean RPGs.

I'm a bit late here, but, I translate Korean maps on the regular - I go to Korea/Asia, play random maps, and if any catch my attention as being interesting/fun then I translate them and redistribute on USW. I don't do super high-quality translations but it is still better than nothing for the sake of playing maps/hosting with English players and not having to explain everything constantly during the game.

If you have a map you want me to look into translating, either --

1: Post it in our UMS Discord:
2: DM me directly on Discord (Sato#9999)

I do this for free, but it is very tedious and time consuming, so please be patient.

Lian's Struggle, Knights of the King, Boss Raid, Reason for Being, Room of Angel RPG, The Destiny of Empire, The Last Memories - any of those?

Could you perhaps post a list of the maps you have translated so far?
