It may not be possible to ask for the mod author to transfer an old version mod to current version, I wonder if I could do it myself.



None.

The only version-specific portion of mods is the grafting component. Using FireGraft to try and convert a mod from one version to another ends up with all sorts of undesirable side effects. It's probably possible to use a hex editor to update the EXE, but I found it faster to just redo the grafting.

I have no idea how to update Samase mods. If you had the original FG EXE, you could just run it through Samase again but presumably only the original author has that.

I found firegraft at "http://www.staredit.net/sc1db/file/2258/", but it says it's outdated and the site "http://www.broodwarai.com/" they suggested isn't available.



None.

Suicidal Insanity -- Were you able to enter arbitrary AIScript IDs?
[09:53 am]
Suicidal Insanity -- Its not that important, text trigedit apparently parses one of the files to verify AIScript IDs, but I dont think the code is used
[09:52 am]
Suicidal Insanity -- I know that. But if AIScript has 'multiplayer-simple' does BWScript have 'multiplayer-simple-ex' or 'multiplayr-simple'?

Pr0nogo -- aiscript has vanilla AI, bwscript has expansion AI

Suicidal Insanity -- Hmm, it doesn't store string names does it?
[11:27 pm]
Suicidal Insanity -- Does the bwscript.bin file just replace the aiscript.bin file with AIs that use BW units, or is the union of both files used by the game?
[10:15 pm]
Suicidal Insanity -- Cool, I have french unit names in my unit tree
[09:03 pm]
Suicidal Insanity -- Either that or the installer wasn't really korean
[09:02 pm]
Suicidal Insanity -- Hmm, I had an old SC 1.15 anthology installer lying around for korean starcraft, but the unit names and so on don't seem to be localized?

Suicidal Insanity -- And there are way too many threads complaining about staredit not working - why aren't they using scmdraft ;(
