When ever I try to open up SCM Draft 0.8.0, I use default or a custom profile and before it opens it gives me the TrigEdit: Something bad happened
It does this everytime unless i continuously create a new profile, and once I'm actually in, I can't click on a location, lay terrain, mess with location options, grid options, mission breifing, triggers don't save and when I try to do it SCM Draft crashes with an error report, I can't place units, or even click on a doodad in the left hand side panel. Help please? Anyone?

Idk what the latest version is. Can you put up a URL? And when will he be back, or, can he fix it?

EDIT: I've heard of an 'installable' version instead of the zip file version. Do any of you know the link to that instead?

That was fixed in like 20 minutes, that was running the backup database stress test ;)

Marine: try the version in the sticky thread, try renaming the backup database, and make sure you have at least SC 1.04 and scmdraft finds stardat.mpq and patch_rt.mpq.

Which thread?

EDIT: this URL http://www.stormcoast-fortress.net/temp/Scmdraft2-setup.rar gave me the "latest" version but I can't install it, my computer asks for a program to to open it...

That's not recent. Go back to the UMS assistance, click on the sticky labeled "Final Call for scmdraft" or similar, and use WinRar to download.

EDIT: removed some harsh comments alluding to lethargy.
In an unrelated note, setting Broodat.mpq as the default .mpq will crash scmdraft. Any reason, SI?

That URL address is the only URL in that post that connects to SCM Draft download.
Wow screw that I'm not buying winRAR for $29. Is there any other program for FREE that i can use?
Nevermind I went online and found a free version of winrar 3.80

Well, after saying that, I looked, and it appears SI's original "Final Call" topic was moved, deleted, abandoned, whatever.
That one was the one I was referring to, my bad.
WinRar will open .rar files.

EDIT: YES! Alright, thank you so much for helping me fix the problem guys. The new one works perfectly!

The majority have a free trial version. Which one was it, the first link?

ᴄʜᴇᴇsᴇ ɪᴛ!

7zip is free and will open rar files, and is actually better/faster. The UI isn't as good IMO. As it stands this looks like it's solved.

Ultraviolet -- You might even be able to turn another unused unit into a map revealer imitation with a smaller vision range so that you could have both normal map revealers and smaller map revealers. Not sure about this one though.

Ultraviolet -- youarenotworthy
youarenotworthy shouted: Does anybody know of a way to reveal just a sliver of the map? Smaller than what a map revealer would reveal? Or is there a way to block the map revealer off at a certain point? I can't use units to achieve what I'm trying to do.
Using EUDs, you can reduce the vision range of map revealers. But of course this will apply to all map revealers. They have a default vision range of 10. For some of my maps, I've been increasing their vision range to 11 and giving them detection and it works nicely. Reducing vision range should work the same.

if at the beginning of the game (as opposed to at some later time in game) is enough, just edit the fog of war layer.

Oh_Man -- Units and map revealers are only way. Unless there's some EUD solution I'm not aware of.

Oh_Man shouted: You can also use burrowed Zerg units.
The OP says he cannot use units. But if it's not units, what else? (there's a command to reveal the area in AISE, but it's only for 1.16)
