Can't unprotect a map

Hi, I was just looking to play some Hero Sanctuary, so I joined one, but found that it was BT5 (which I already had) and my download started at 50%. When I went to open the map in the editor, I found that it was named twoemp (for The War of Emperium). I unprotected it, but it still wouldn't open. The date and time the map was added to my folder was 2:45 PM Jan 2. I have no idea how the host hosted the map as Hero Sanctuary but when I host it, it's war of emperium. I can't even open it in the editor, even with unprotecting. Check it out:

My map unprotector isn't working, either. Strange...

I've found some protections require the use of two unprotectors before you can use them. Usually OSMap2 + UU2 works for me.

I order you to forgive yourself!

I unprotected it for you. It was pretty fast.

Yeah this is a very annoying hack that someone is using (targeting a lot of HS games). The best way to prevent it is to not let the DL complete and tell the host to remake.

An even better way to prevent it is by downloading the map and never having to bother with it again.

Also, you used SMC 2.5 beta 3 for that unprotection. Strings got fawked, dood. 256 strings got overwritten and deleted.

In that order? If so, I'd be surprised because OSMAP2 is known to crash more than UU2. Then again, UU2 does weird things to the strings sometimes.

Maybe? Now that I think about it I think I use UU2 first.

That didn't work on this one. For some reason, always crashes OSMAP2.

I haven't used it in the latest version of remastered, but I assume it still works. It definitely did before. It's pretty neat. Super fast & easy way to create a save/load system
