Blizzard is now recommending SCMDraft 2 to all players.
Another big victory for the SEN community!

*shouts of joy*



Quote from Matt Sherman, StarCraft Developer
SCMDRAFT is not only more robust than StarEdit, but it’s also much more user-friendly. Although SCMDRAFT is an unofficial editor for StarCraft, rest assured we work closely with Sinsanity to ensure its compatibility with the game.

Wow, and they 86d staredit.exe from the installation, too. I wonder if I should have backed up or something but the effin' Blizzard Agent updated everything without me noticing. When I looked into the STARCRAFT\ folder now it looked to me like Norton Antivirus has been let loose there: most files are gone. :)



Who am I, and why should I care?

I see you !

The editor wouldn't help without the MPQs anyhow.

I understand (I still have them in my derelict 1.16 installation, but patch_ed.mpq is gone for good now).

Good thing about the new patch: SAMASE works without any noticeable issues.
Bad thing: most AI stuff is now broken, including the stock Insane script I was using in a mission.

Everyone is expendable. The machine will continue running either way. Learned that a long time ago in the restaurants, I imagine it applies to these other companies, too. There's always someone willing to take your job

I'll see if I can work it into my schedule.

lately? They've been transforming from a passionate game studio to a major corporation that only considers business decisions like a decade ago. And they were only lucky that their business interests didn't conflict with the gamer's interests before. Merging with Activision didn't help in that regard.

Ultraviolet -- Activision, rather

O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- most common addresses have already been found and are supported, the only exception is things relating to graphics because SC:R has different (and incompatible) handling of sprites and graphics
