SCMDraft 2 not working with SC:R's latest patch

Just today, the Battlenet app made me download an update for SC:R.
Now SCMDraft 2 won't start. It says "Please select the StarCraft directory".

I find the current directory. No luck.
Thankfully, I have an older version of the game (from the old CDs) installed on the computer. So I locate that directory. Still no luck.

Now I'm lost. Can anyone help?
Thanks.

Ensure SCMDraft is unblocked.

Otherwise what specific version of SCMDraft are you using? You could try the latest version or an older version like the one in the second post.

I got it working. It seems that since the last SC update lots of people have had problems. SCMDraft has been updated a lot recently... the latest version works. It can be downloaded here:

I see you !

The latest patch removed the MPQs scmdraft used to load the game data and switched to a new file format, which is why the old versions no longer work.

I tried to post links to the newest version which has support in various locations so it could quickly be found.

Aha thank you. RIP StarEdit.

The Switch condition isn't working. In the trigger editor:
Code
Conditions:
    Switch("Switch1", Invalid switch state);


This new patch is messing so many things up.

Even trigger duplicator isn't working. Help?

[...] which is why the old versions no longer work.

I tried using Scmdraft-0.9.01 2017.08.27 OfficialRelease version and it seems to work. Also tried Scmdraft 2 on 2017.06.13 and it works too. Run application, click OK, and takes you to editor, no "Please select the StarCraft directory" error. You can edit maps, save them, go into classic trigger and trigger editor. You can even start it when SC is running, edit map, and save it. These two 2017 versions I tried seems to work.

I see you !

The old versions work if you still have the old datafiles somewhere. They will not work with a new 1.23 install.

The new version also still works with the old datafiles.

Hmm that's odd. Seems like all versions that I have works now, including the installer one (ScmDraft 2 Version 0.9.08 (Installer)). That's great!

Ah ok, I didn't see your post earlier. But still the Switch condition isn't working for the Scmdraft 2 2019.07.15 version.

They will not work with a new 1.23 install.

Wait, what do you mean by this? Because I do have the latest patch installed, Version 1.23.0.6347. I mean, I had the same problem as BaggyT before, with the new 1.23 installed, but it seems now I don't have this problem anymore.

You can manually specify the MPQs (presumably from 1.16 or 1.22) in the profile. You have to, anyway, if you're creating a profile to hook up your mod's custom files.

Yeah that i know but after updating sc remastered when i try edit profiles and and dosent pick auto detect sc version i have 4 options

sc 1.16
sc 1.22 (with new ramps)
sc 1.23 (newest)
sc mod versions

picking mode 1.16 and 1.22(with new ramps) (in 1.22 the data files MPQ's is auto choosen)if choosing these two options the profile comes with a fault saying you need to run the newest file of sc v1.23. = i cant get scmdraft running at the moment at all.

It's looking like this on my end:
