Tool to launch Starcraft with a map from command line

Hi,

I am looking for a way to launch Starcraft with a path to a .scm/.scx file, so that Starcraft will just load up this file and play it immediately rather than going through the start screen or map selection menu, etc.

E.g. something like: "$ starcraft.exe --map Hunters.scm --windowed=True" would launch a Starcraft process that immediately plays the Hunters.scm map in windowed mode.

This exists for Warcraft 3, so there's a good chance it's possible with Starcraft.

See this example for Warcraft 3: https://github.com/sethmachine/pyw3x/blob/master/pyw3x/wc3_runner.py

Warcraft 3 executable actually accepts CLI arguments (so no modded executable) and loads a map using the -loadfile parameter.



None.

I don't know if loading a specific map is fully functional yet, but this may be useful:

I never wrote the run map portion; I have 1.16.1 code to launch StarCraft, run a map, then kill the program entirely and repeat... but I never mapped out hiscore/create game screens and such.

I could write some code to terminate StarCraft if running and run a map automatically from there in a few hours, if that sounds useful to you.
