Do you mean copy frame 32 on to frame 119? You should just be able to decompile the grp, copy+paste over the frame you want, and then recompile the whole thing.

I think he means in memory editing or whatever.

While on Firegraft you can choose which button to show as the action icon.

I tried to use GRPedit program to change frame 119 pic to frame 32, but all frames became darker after I used it.

and I extracted wireframe.grp from broodat as staredit has no wireframe.grp.

my current starcraft 1 version is starcraft anthology 1.16.1.

I thought I uploaded pic now I realized that I didn't upload a pic.

Here's a pic that I need to paste it to frame 119 (Unused terran Bldg)

If it comes out darker then something weird is happening. I would recommend sfgrpconv, and for wireframes specifically I would recommend not selecting one image for all frames (I don't remember the exact phrasing since I'm on my phone) so you can copy the frame without editing anything.

wireframe.grp does it based on unit id as far as I'm aware.

Uh-oh, when I pasted wireframe.grp to brooedit, the screen became dark after I run map on starcraft.exe.

In other way, I tried to use NPA version 5 to paste code to trigeditplus plugin in SCMdraft 2 0.8.1, but map crashes.

How can I put wirefram.grp into broodat without any crashes?

I attached wirefram.grp file.

That's very strange, the wirefram.grp looks perfectly valid as far as I can tell O.o

I'm not familiar with how you are using it, but when I add it to an mpq and run with mpqdraft it works fine.

If it manages to crash a map editor it is most likely not wirefram.grp since that never gets viewed. ever. in an editor. It's probably something else like an iscript or something that you added to your MPQ.

But just to be on the safe side, make sure you applied the proper pallete to wirefram.grp.

Where can I find proper pallete? I tried other palletes but images became dark for several tries.

When I added grp file to program then run it, units' wireframe images were still dark.

Ok, I get it now. the frames are colorful except 119.

How can I change its color to same as 32?

In that you are using the icons palette, you should use the wireframe palette.
