Unlocking a protected map (Wraith Dodge)?

Apologies if this is not the correct place to post this.

I've come across a cool map that's extremely difficult, maybe some of you have heard of it: Wraith Dodge.

It plays more like an arcade style game and haven't seen many maps quite like it. One problem I find that myself and a lot of players online are terrible at it which takes so much of the fun away from the map.

I'd like to test out an auto respawn so that it keeps players engaged and prevent them from leaving as soon as they die.

But I'm not able to open the map for editing. Attempting to open in SCMDRAFT2 gives me an error loading the map "Exception raised while loading the MPQ. The MPQ appears to be in an unsupported format."

I would attempt to remake the map but the creators have done a superb job and used some blackmagic that I'd probably never figure out..

I tried using "Unused Unprotector 2" but was no go. The file it created was much, much smaller and wouldn't open.

Don't stop till you get enough

Map unprotectors aren't officially supported here, but I think we've gotten to an era in SC's history where no one really cares if an old map is unprotected.. particularly if you respectfully leave credit to the original creator. I'd suggest googling SMC 2.88 naver, probably your best chance of getting in.

I could have a look at it if the guys over here won't have anything against it.

IlyaSnopchenko -- 1.16 does look better than SD in SCR because of the way the latter smoothes (=muddles) the graphics
