PyMS is a StarCraft modding suite writting using the Python programming language (so PyMS source version requires Python 2.5+ installed, the EXE version doesn't), meaning it will work for Mac users and Windows users alike (actually it will run on most OS's if it matters). PyMS contains 13 programs to edit various StarCraft files:
  • AI Scripts
  • GRP Files
  • All DAT Files
  • Palette Files
  • TBL Files
  • GOT Files
  • LO? Files
  • TRG Files
  • iscript BIN Files
  • FNT Files
  • Tileset files
  • PCX Files
  • MPQ Files
Currently the programs are all considered Beta, but should be stable. Each program includes a comprehensive command line interface, and a GUI. More editors are planned like a Special Palette editor, but the current programs are a higher priority at the moment. Currently the documentation is lacking, currently only having help on the command line interface, but it has good information on some of the programs. Most programs are straight forward and designed after other modding programs, so they should be easy to figure out and get used to. Also note that all testing is done on Windows XP with Python 2.5, so its possible but unlikely that things wont work outside of those conditions. If you have problems just post here or on the PyMS forums.

Very nice. :)

One thing that I am really interested in:

In PyGOT there is an option that lets you enable cheat codes. Can this work in Multiplayer?



If anything cool is ever going on Skype me up under the name "blarghle"

No. It's just a copy of GameTemplate.exe in python, from what I can see.

Yeah it is based on GameTemplate.exe. Do you happen to know who made GameTemplate? Was it you Farty?

It was Blizzard, as far as I know. When it came about it was said that it was found in a German SC patch or something... All the files that came with it were German, so I fixed that. :P

In the version info it says "GameTemplate MFC Application"... "MFC" = ?
It's copyright is 1997, so that seems believable.
I thought I remembered seeing a name somewhere on it...

Yeah. There is an About dialog, a "New" Dialog, and a disabled, invisible "Generate List File" button.
Ooh! I found the about dialog! Right-click it in the taskbar.

Lol nice Farty. I've never seen a program with the "About" option in the taskbar popup menu, how did you figure that out? Luck?

I remembered seing it before, so I was right-clicking all over. :P

Sleeping wolves wake hungry.

Simply brilliant.

As far as I've tested, there are no bugs that i've noticed enough to care.

An iscript editor wouldn't go amiss, though =)

Keep it up.

An IScript editor is next on my list. Thanks for the testing! I would love to hear of even the smallest problems if you remember any though.

You're AIGUI editor gives me constant errors that a section is unused or isn't called when I've called it numerous times throughout the script. The scripts work perfectly ingame, its just that your debugger is buggy :P.

The AI scripts I import into the AI file with pyAI. Also, your AI editor corrupts files like... 50% of the time.


However, that's not to say that your editor isn't good -- its a great editor -- I'd just like to see some things fixed :P

I was asking if you could post the script either with PM or here. I have had a complaint about labels being said to not be used but obviously are, and thought I had fixed it, but noone has ever had a problem with corruption that wasn't just a stupid mistake on my end (no actual corruption occured). So please send me the script which gives incorrect warnings, and any bin files that have been "corrupted" by the editor, and i'll fix it, without them, theres not much I can do.
