Is there a map editor that actually works?

So I have tried the default Starcraft 2 map editor and have become fairly proficient. I have a lot of great ideas I would like to implement but every time I use this program it throws out random problem which have no solution, it crashes, freezes up, and mods completely destroy the map I'm working on. After days of work I find myself inevitably having to start ALL OVER from scratch again, which brings me to my question:

I have searched far and wide for an alternative but ZERO of them seem to be working. . .as in. . .they dont even open at all. I recently found SCMDraft 2, but I get an error code right out of the gate saying it cant find the game data.

Is there ANY PROGRAM that actually works or am I stuck with the default map editor?

We can't explain the universe, just describe it; and we don't know whether our theories are true, we just know they're not wrong. >Harald Lesch

ScmDraft is for Starcraft 1: Broodwar. There are a few other editors for scbw out there but they are vastly outdated and outperformed. ScmD is still in active development, so we will be able to help you run it.

However you opened saying you used the Starcraft 2 editor which would be the Galaxy Map Editor. If that's the case you posted in the wrong forum section, but no worry, I can move it.
For SC2 there's only Galaxy Edit as far as I'm aware and it's known to be a resource hog and crash often. (fitting your description)

Oh my bad. Sorry about that. That would be great thank you.

Got someone to do a decent impersonation and then used professional audio engineers to make it sound like the original actor

IlyaSnopchenko -- Sure doesn't sound perfect... nothing is. I know it's better than my own attempts at voiceacting (but I'll have to resort to that, too; I've just been putting that off for ages).

Oh_Man -- oh right, yeh if ur trying to do additional dialogue for dead or unavailable actors then its ur only option. it still doesnt sound perfect though

IlyaSnopchenko -- I'm 99% satisfied with the results Jun3hong was able to extract from Elevenlabs for our project... but of course YMMV

IlyaSnopchenko -- It is a good solution for original characters, I guess, but if you want to visit a canon character, there's bound to be issues.

Oh_Man -- the alternative is go on voices dot com or some pay to play sites and hire some cheap talent

IlyaSnopchenko -- Mind you, it was almost impossible to get decent expressions for Zeratul, mostly because he is very much emotionless most of the time in his real voice lines. Which is understandable for story reasons, of course, but not beneficial for our purposes. :-)

IlyaSnopchenko -- I feel it's good enough, and the alternative is having nothing at all. And sometimes, in our case, Jun3hong got surprisingly good performance out of the AI. You can ask him how many attempts it took him.
