Title: StarCrack Launcher Rev 53 with DEBUGGING Features Preview Download
Post by: usmc23 on March 06, 2010, 06:36:46 PM
This release is more geared towards developers than anything else.
If you are NOT a developer DO NOT use this build.
 
You MUST run SC2 in a window if you want to have debugging features from olly
enabled! If you DO NOT want debug features delete the olly folder.
 
(http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/2259/launcherrev53.png)
 
INSTALLATION:
Extract to: C:\Program Files (x86)\StarCraft II Beta\Support
Package Contains:
SC2Launcher: Front end launcher with UI.
sc2debug: Custom starcrack debugger.
StarHackDebug.dll: Code that gets injected into SC2.
 
We plan on releasing a full plugin package so you guys can make your
own C++/Lua memory patching code that will come in the next release.
When you launch SC2Launch.exe it saves a file called MapToLoad.LaunchTemp,
and than launches sc2debug.exe.  If you launch sc2debug.exe and MapToLoad.LaunchTemp
is NOT present it loads directly into the Battle.Net menu. Like wise if you just
quickly want to reload the same map with the SAME settings, you don't have to launch
SC2Launcher you can just run sc2debug.exe
 
For now the MapInfo modications are still in SC2Launch.exe.
 
To use sc2debug.exe when it loads up press the RIGHT shift key which will bring up
the command typing window.
 
Two commands that are currently supported:
readint <-- you type it in a offset it returns the int value for that offset.
printmsg <-- USE ONLY WHILE IN A GAME.  PRINTS A MESSAGE TO THE IN GAME CHAT WINDOW.
USAGE:
readint address_value_as_int, i.e. offset 0x00ABCDEF would be 11259375.
So you would type readint 11259375 and it would give a int value at this location.
printmsg message from starcrack!
 
OllyDebug can be used how ever you want it gets started RIGHT AWAY which is why the game
has to be windowed.

You all need to update your SC2 builds


This launcher probably requires a newer build that you don't have. Run SC2 from its actual executable and let it update. I had the same problem. that fixed it, which means its looking for a directory you dont have.

how can we change AI difficulties?

The AI right now most people don't find difficult so were focusing on new features(i.e. we spent four days finding out how to do race changing), so if you just replace the MPQ in the Liberty folder you can just install the AI.
 
Have you tried the newest version?

Post by: SCFan68 on March 07, 2010, 03:51:27 AM
A small change to the way this works would make it possible to play replays.


In order for replays to load without "UNABLE TO OPEN MAP", you need to have launched the map from in the cache subfolders.


If it was possible to change the source directory for maps, it could be easily fixed.  You could then put the maps into the cache\ subfolders, and point the launcher to there.  Then when you've finished, you can load the replay with Lazy Launcher, and it should replay.


EDIT: I have tested this and I can confirm.  I put the official maps into the cache folders. I created a subfolder for them called "zz" to put it at the bottom.  Anything would have worked though.  Then I launched one of the maps, from there, via LazyLauncher v2.  It did the whole "victory" thing because it was an unmodified map. But I fooled about for a minute or two, then quit.  I then loaded the replay via lazy launcher and it did play successfully.  So simply having an ability to choose the source folder would give replay ability.
Title: Re: StarCrack Launcher with Color, Race Selection, AI Slot changing, Rand Races
Post by: SCFan68 on March 07, 2010, 04:10:09 AM
Actually, I'm not 100% sure now after all.  The way these work by modifying and resaving the map file would mean a different, new source file for the replay.  It would have to be saved in the cache folders, and launched from there, and left behind with a unique name I suspect.


Oh well, just trying to help.  I'll watch the progress...


EDIT: The problem is, these launchers take the map, and recompile it with the AI changes and AI players added in, and then saves it somewhere, and launches it from there with Lazy Launch.


If it creates that temporary map file in the cache folders, it would work for replays. However, you'd need to have unique filenames each time to avoid overwriting previous maps.  This would mean that you're cache folder would quickly start to swell with new maps, at 1-2mb a piece, with each game.  So I'm not sure if there is a practical solution.


(sorry for double posting this in the two different launcher threads, trying to help solve this problem, if possible, and both launchers are nearly perfect, in except for their ability to play replays)

I have a suggestion for a feature. Yes, its a bit early to ask for a new feature if the loader might not even be out of its beta test yet, but I think this would be useful to get into the loader from early on.
http://darkblizz.org/Forum2/sc2-tools/making-replays-possible-with-these-different-launchers/ (http://darkblizz.org/Forum2/sc2-tools/making-replays-possible-with-these-different-launchers/)
SCFan68 has a very good idea here. Make this new launcher take its temporary map file and add it to the cache. Well it is already a cache file :) Main problem would be figuring out how the cache actually works. Well, not really now I think about it, all that is needed is for the generated map to have a generated cache name and for it to be placed in the Battlenet/cache folder somewhere. It should even be possible to just make an obvious "STARCRACK" folder right there  ;) Or you could just call it Launcher or whatever. Should be enough just to make put the map somewhere in the cache folder. Doing this having the launched map any special place on the HD wont be necessary either.
A bonus would be if the launcher also adds the AI into the map. AIs would have to become Trigger map run though, but so far I do not think the Starcraft V6 uses more than the TriggerLibs folder for AI. Saves about 1-2 mbyte map size.
The SC2Launcher 2.0.2 launcher already uses a similar method I think. I might be completely wrong about this launcher, it might already have all these functions and I just have not figured them out yet.

It seems this launcher suffers the same mistake as in LazyLauncher 1.0

That is, it can only load the older version of the game, and can't load up the latest patch.

To fix this, go into the folder ...StarCraft II Beta\Versions and rename "Base14133" to "BACKUP_Base14133". Then make a copy of "Base14259" and rename the copy to "Base14133".

Did you read the last part of my post?.. It will work with Patch 4 as long as you follow the steps that I posted..

That's a workaround for now until StarCrack fixes the problem in their next release.

Yea, this bug made me have to reinstall Starcraft 2 Beta because it seems to have been changing the patch files or something, so I could not load replays anymore. I will wait for the next patch before I try it again.

I opened the the maps pack. It was only 2 mb smaller, and I might end up saving a bit bandwidth this way.
Btw. this mod might corrupt your SC2 install. I had to reinstall to be able to view replays again after having this one installed. Probably because mis clicking might cause corruption in the map files it uses. I would recommend waiting for next version, or at least be prepared that you might have to reinstall SC2 again.

This is NOT a front end for lazy launcher and it will work with the newest patch, ill post a new update today.  As far as replays go im going to see if I can find a work around cause you guys are right replays break with different MapInfos.

You can set slots to "human" so you can choose how many computers you want to play against, and ill add a option to set where the SC2 folder is so it doesn't have to be in the registry.

Excellent feed back, and if someone here wants to work on the graphics of the launcher we are def looking for more people just PM me on IRC.

The guy that did team selection took our stuff and figured out team selection and we can't get ahold of him, what I was hoping people would do is join our team instead off coming up with knock off launchers and adding one new feature to it : ).
 
And team selection is really glitchy for the AI atm anyway in that guys launcher.

Alright, I've looked into the Battle.net Cache folder and I'm not seeing any maps in there. So I took the Maps.zip thing linked in the first post in this thread and extracted the maps into a a folder I created called Maps in the Starcraft II Beta folder. I then tried to run the S2Launcher_Unsupported deal, but it didn't detect any maps at all. Clearly I've done something wrong (again). Any generous souls out there willing to lend a gal a hand?

Where did you put the maps? I had that issue a second ago and figured that i misplaced some of my files.

C:\Documents and Settings\user name\My Documents\StarCraft II Beta\Maps

I still do not understand this launcher, I did get it working with the starlauncher. I hope you get hold of that guy. It seems he put all the working code into his launcher. I think that is why he did not enable color selection. Now we just need team AI.
Also I do not like having several different AI, although I guess it has its uses.
I followed this guide:
http://darkblizz.org/Forum2/not-enough-pylons/how-to-view-your-own-replays-(with-full-instructions-on-how-to-install-the-game)/ (http://darkblizz.org/Forum2/not-enough-pylons/how-to-view-your-own-replays-(with-full-instructions-on-how-to-install-the-game)/)
And then I made my own guide:
http://darkblizz.org/Forum2/sc2-tools/a-chinese-launcher-for-selecting-race-color-and-observer/ (http://darkblizz.org/Forum2/sc2-tools/a-chinese-launcher-for-selecting-race-color-and-observer/)
Well and added it to their guide. I guess most people will prefer your method if they can get it working, since it is a simpler way of making all maps have AI, and since I have met a wall failing to add AI to some maps.

Sc2.exe not found.  I tried moving the launcher executable around didn't seem to matter.  Any solution to this issue?


EDIT: Ok so I think I found the problem.  Moving the launcher in the same folder as the Sc2.exe under Versions\Base14259 (the latest) worked.  Maybe it's something specific to Windows7?

Rev 34 with team selection.
Its replay part works great. I guess there is some logic to running maps from the maps folder meant for it, and having those same maps somewhere in the cache. Made replay of the game work even with a team match. It still seems to work with the first non working teams version. The 0.41 launcher somehow got teams to not attack each other.
I guess handicaps is one of the few settings left before AI map play functionality will be complete. The color picker in this version also seems to have worked great. I hope the UI will be improved at some point though. Grey and white? Auch. Try with Battle Net colors maybe. Blue and black. But being just plain colors with no effects, maybe it would be possible to just add some Starcraft 2 picture as background for the launcher?
Just an idea. The layout of this launcher seems one of its last flaws. Or was this the launcher that got theme support at some point? If then I guess I am making something out of nothing.
Map Preview is also nice. I hope Blizzard makes it possible to save replays with a name after a game is over. I guess I am hoping they already did make that possible, I just have not looking into what is going on, on the actual Battle Net 2.

Is the teams fixed in this version? with the starlauncher your teammate will still go to your base as if to attack, yet he doesnt. The problem is he usually gets killed because all his forces are at my base doing nothing lol.

That isn't fixed yet but it will be, as far as the crash make sure you are using the original b.net map file pack on the first post of the topic : ).

on rev 34,

twilight fortress in your attached map pack is setup as 2 player only???
only loads 1 AI players.
WORST PROBLEM: Only spawns (7 in a row anyway) both players at bottom of map

trying replays (of 6.1.1 cheating ai) causes crash in sc2 in win7(no error number).  no problem loading the replay in original lazy launcher.
Title: Re: StarCrack Launcher Rev 34(TEAMS/Race/Color/Replays/Bug Fixes).
Post by: usmc23 on March 08, 2010, 11:53:01 PM
Twilight fortress is 4 players remember change the AI to HUMAN or Human to AI to add and remove AI, replays work with the OLD lazy launcher because its loading older sc2 versions, this launcher only works with the newest patch, hence only replays created with the latest patch work with the launcher : ).

Rev 35 AI Teams Fixed.

Pretty sweet. I was looking forward to a launcher with team settings (which is why i just stuck with Lazylauncher 2.0 until now). Just played a match (2v2) and it worked fairly well. A few things I noticed were that my ally liked to pile lots of units right in my mineral lines (Grrrr) and just hang out in my base. Also, the game does not end after destroying all enemy buildings so I wonder if it still considers your ally an enemy that needs to be destroyed or something. It is possible i missed an enemy building but i was pretty thorough.

Still awesome though. Thanks

If your ally is doing that, then it still isn't working properly.

In my case, I just played a game with the latest revision and it worked perfectly and through coincidence or not, they helped me destroy both enemy bases and didn't come to mine once... not even to defend... haha.

Works perfectly! colors, races, replays, teams, EVERYTHING!

What I was really surprised was when my comp ally joined forces with me to attack !!

His units was ahead of me, and he saw me following behind him, so he moved his units back to combine with my army. It was amazing!

Thank you StarCrack SOOOOO MUCH. you guys rock!

I can't get it to work. It says "Unable to load map", no matter which map I choose (after putting the maps linked in the first post into the correct folder).

Besides, this launcher has
- Hardcoded map path (C:\Users.... I HATE putting anything on the C: drive, as it gets wiped by next windows reinstall)
- Hardcoded game path (Other launchers let you choose the version to launch and have an option of "Latest")
- No AI choice option
- Doesn't work with maps containing 5 or more players
- No "Show FPS" etc. options

I hope you'll fix these in a future release, until then I'm using other launchers that work.

ok, it seems like this launcher permanently alters your maps, so make sure you have a backup copy of all your maps, cuz this launcher changes them..

there's also a few bugs.. the team functions don't work properly on certain maps.

Here are a few suggestions:

- under "Player controller", add a slot for observer.
- not sure if it's true that the launcher alters maps permanently, but a fix for that would be nice.

v35,

setting 3 players to human still loads 3 AIs
deleting the text in player slots 3 and 4 still loads 3 AIs
someone said they played a 1v2, but I have no idea how they might have accomplished that.
Implementing a disabled option would be clearest.

Were the ones that came up with Race Selection among others first that the other launchers took from us, so with out StarCrack you wouldn't have AI or Race selection : ).
 
Anyway as far as the crashing, can you elerberate more on how and why it crashes? Example is your game 100% up to date?  Is your cache clean(alot of other launchers trash the cache folder).
 
To play a 1v2 map change one of the AI alots to Human, ill look into the 6 player maps sense alot of people want that.
 
I don't see the point in choosing AI versions, just use Turds 6.1 A.I. which you can download from here.  Well make it so you can choose between cheatin and a few other things.

Hello guys,
i dont know what i do wrong - but im still getting the sc2 crash and message out of memory.
I've the latest version of sc2. I've downloaded the maps and put in the right directory.
C:\Documents and Settings\kreed\"Documents"\StarCraft II Beta\Maps and your launcher sees the maps.
"Documents" means my documents in russian, i've got russian version of win xp. (maybe that's the problem, russian literals in path ? ).

Can you help me please ;)

Thanks!
Best regards,

I wondered about this as well now.. After the other launcher and it's map changing, I keep a close eye on my map files now. And I noticed that when I play with this launcher now, the file.date stamp changes on the map I used. However, I didn't investigate further to see if it's actually changed, or was just time/date stamp change.

This is a bucketful of fail for me because as per the directions:



<<Copy all of your maps from the
c:\users\<yourname>\AppData\Local\Blizzard Entertainment\Battle.net\cache
to:
C:\Users\<yourname>\Documents\StarCraft II Beta\Maps>>


Well, my maps are not in that file, and the Starcraft II beta client is not in the file stated above. Does this mean I have to re-install the game and create that file path file so that your program will work with it?


There are no teams, when I select teams, it just starts as a normal FFA

Post by: LebK on March 09, 2010, 12:41:51 PM
@ Servitor you need to have your maps here,
C:\Users\<yourname>\Documents\StarCraft II Beta\Maps
 
If you don't have the maps download the mappack from here
http://darkblizz.org/Forum2/ai-scripts/starcraft-2-beta-offline-ai-maps/ (http://darkblizz.org/Forum2/ai-scripts/starcraft-2-beta-offline-ai-maps/)
 
Delete any file with (2x or above) these are maps that were scripted with AI. It is pretty useless now with this launcher, but they have the original load screen which I think is cool.
 
Make sure in Player Controller you select AI. Then make sure in Team selection that you put the AI's on the desired teams.
 
The path that was stated is the default path that Starcraft 2 beta is installed into for Windows English versions. If your copy is not installed there then either you changed it or you have a different langauage version of windows. If so, it is still in the same spot but just in whatever language windows is in. If you are using an English version just uninstall and reinstall the game and do the stated instructions.
 
Hope that is helpfull.

Russian version cause alot of problems I dont have a Russian OS version so I can't test it, if you are getting errors MAKE SURE you are using the original SC2 maps found on the first topic.  If teams don't work for you than DOWNLOAD THE MAPS that are in the first post : ).

Maps already scripted for AI probley will NOT work sense alot of people made some really hacky implementations.  The launcher will automatically modify virgin maps to add in A.I.

Your right I need to change the readme sense you dont have to copy the maps from the cache anymore download them from the first post.

ok after messing around a bit more with this launcher, here's what I've found out:

1. Kula's Ravine map does NOT work properly on this launcher in Team Mode. All other maps work fine in 2v2 & 1v3 modes.

2. The settings of the launcher doesn't change unless I exit and restart it. So for example, if I play a 2v2 game, then afterwards I decide to play a 1v3 game, I would have to exit the launcher and restart it for it to work in 1v3 mode.

Placed it in the correct directory.

Yet while it goes to the loading screen, after a while I get the out of memory error. Ive read the whole post and cannot find a solution... Please help!

Goto: c:\users\namr\AppData\Local\Blizzard Entertainment\ and rename the battle.net folder to something else.
 
6 player maps and map folder picking will be in rev 40 tonight.

Is anyone else having "Out of memory" errors when using this?
I've tried it with the maps uploaded on OP, tried with 1v1, 1v3, 2v2, tried it with and without AI, and even reinstalled SC2 to no avail.
I keep getting the "Out of memory" crashes. (oh yeah, fully updated too)

Any suggestions? Or anyone experiencing the same?

You need to have installed the virgin map pack found on the first topic.  Im going to upload rev 40 which will let you set your own map paths.
yes, i did that, thats what i meant by "tried it with the maps uploaded on the OP" (original post)

========= Revision 40 =========
Adding a loading screen/custom loading screen support.

BETA SUPPORT: For 6 player maps, race selection works on player 5 but not player 6.
         Allies are bugged for 6 player maps, may or may not work.
Added Custom Maps Folder
To go back to the old maps folder method, delete custompath.path in your launcher
directory.

You can selection your own maps folder and it works fine.  AI Selection I see as a pointless feature cause you should be using the latest AI no matter what.

I can make some suggestions layout for you later. If you can make the screens SC2 but I think it would be better to leave the screen layout as simple as possible (like google how much simpler the better). During the weekdays I can assure you. But at the end of this week I can. If you like me to add here and send me or pass a reference so I can talk with you on messenger or any application to talk and I will pass the image on the new model or layout. Today I will fall asleep. Have a great night. Thanks for everything.

1. Replays vs AI do not work, which makes the "select map folder location" feature useless on this launcher. It was more useful in Valkyrie's launcher, because the replays actually worked in his launcher.

2. AI selection needs some work. I need to switch between 2 different AI's. StarCrack AI for playing, and Original Blizzard AI for watching replays of other people. (In Valkyrie's launcher, it lets you switch between 2 different AI's, which is very convenient).

It appears that all the maps have the fifth and sixth players disabled (greyed out) so i am not sure if that is me doing something stupid (or not doing something smart) or if its just being buggy or if i just misunderstood and it is not as supported as i thought it was. Also, just as a note, Blistering sands is not in the map pack thing.

I havent tried it yet, but as long as the maps are in both the MAPS folder under documents, and in the battlenet cache folder, then replays seems to work just fine. I am playing with sYk0s AI mappack, and all but Shakuras Plateau is working. Although I need to do some more testing. I had some problems with the "Shakuras Plateau" map as well as a few others when trying to make a mappack with built in AI. Most the others were two player maps though.
 
Btw, why are the choices for these maps only AI or human? Disabled is missing for some reason. What did that last bye do? :) I do not mind referee and observer not being added, rather useless choices really.

Post by: gyorokpeter on March 10, 2010, 04:39:10 AM
Still not working, it says "Unable to open map" even with the "virgin" maps.
Now the interface won't even fit into 1280*800 resolution, at least on Windows 7. Maybe packing things closer together would help.

About AI selection: you don't have to care about elevation. If someone is dumb enough to install SC2 into C:\Program Files, then let him do his penance by clicking "Run as administrator" every time.

However, I think fixing "Unable to open map" should be your first priority. It's surely not my fault that it doesn't work, since the other launchers work as expected.

Hello, good morning. In the listbox I do not need to inform the number "1) AI. I think the layout would be much better if it were simple resources development tool. Remember for those who use the functionality is better than a good image with many errors. But anyway, if you want after I get the pictures and make some mounts for you, but like I said all I have time even to do this over the weekend. The moment was what gave to do. A feature that you could implement is when you change the color to change the caption of the number of the color of the player, I think it would be interesting, but not necessarily mandatory. Still with that error screen becomes too large. Thank you and have a Great Day.

strangely, the replays work fine for me now.. They weren't working earlier this morning.

This launcher seems to be Extremely buggy and very sensitive to fatal errors.

Anyways.. Everything is working fine for me now, except for the Kula's Ravine map.

I would still like a feature to switch between my custom AI & the original blizzard AI, just so I can watch replays downloaded from other websites.

Good work so far StarCrack.

Thank you so much, this should be put in the OP.


My only complaints with this launcher:
1) No Starcraft 2 version select. I want to be sure it's launching the correct version.
2) Teams are still a bit buggy, some maps aren't working anymore due to it. Kulas Ravine is the one that comes to mind.
3) The color selection is lacking, can we actually see the colors instead of names? Where's black?

Other than that everything seem good. Thanks for your work.

Post by: gyorokpeter on March 10, 2010, 07:38:04 AM
Finally I have found out how to work this thing. Even though it says unable to open map, the launcher permanently modifies the map file, and this anti-feature comes in handy as you can then run the modified map using LazyLaunch.

So in short, set up the players, press launch, quit after the unable to open map message, and run the map with LazyLaunch and enjoy.

If you get SC2 not found that means your not patched, haha I already see the other launchers taking some of our features.  We will work on the UI today and see if we can get the replays working 100%.
 
If you are using Windows XP SP3 and getting a "Open Map Error" try using the "Set Map Path" feature.

Has anyone actually beat the shared bases map? Everytime I do it my AI teammate is terrible, and we end up just getting rushed by 2 AI forces (About 20-30 units). I have a force up enough to handle 1 1/2 of a force not 2. At this point my AI has maybe 3 units. Not much I do in terms of tier 2, as I only get one gas mine.

I've lasted maybe 6 minutes at most, the first rush always gets me or weakens me enough that the 2nd rush (that happens 30 seconds later!) kills me off. I'm not exactly sure how the other team is getting so many guys so fast. Was the map edited to give the AI more money or something?

I have no problems beating v6.1.1 in 1vs1... Infact, i've won the last 10 or so matches against the AI in 1vs1. But this seems impossible.

srsly guys, whats the intention of the uglyness of this app?
why do you tell in readme to copy mapfiles and stuff whilst giving ability to chose mapdir?
(which option ridiculously needs a restart of the app and doesn't even work properly! WTF?)
the gray background is much more then ugly and gives my eyes some bleeding while my cursors just hidden somewhere on the screen. ever heard of windows themes and stuff?

I just tried your launcher and must say, it will never be my choice if you wont change the whole damn thing.

sorry for those who can't stand bad critics. i'm disappointed.

If you are using Windows XP SP3 and getting a "Open Map Error" try using the "Set Map Path" feature.

I'm getting the "Open Map Error" on Windows 7, both with the default map path and custom one. The modified maps work in LazyLaunch, however the teams don't work that way and give an error message:
Code: [Select]
Trigger Error in
'gt_MeleeInitialization_Func':
Parameter out of bounds in
'PlayerGetAlliance' (value: 10, min:
Passive, max: 9)

Can you please change the layout a bit? as it is it is far too tall for someone with a small screen (1280x800) and maybe move some of the extra spaces? This launcher is the biggest size, while other launchers with similar or more features tend to be much smaller and use their space much more efficiently.

We are revamping the UI out right now, if you are using LazyLauncher at this point thats kinda stupid, to fix the problem with "Unable to Open Map" it is because your users directory is on another hard drive than SC2, you need to run with the Launcher with admin rights.
 
You will also need to create a C:\Users\<yourname>\AppData\Local\Blizzard Entertainment\Battle.net\Cache folder.
 
If you are using NON-ENGLISH charectors in your user directory path make a new user and run the launcher from that user.

Is anyone else having "Out of memory" errors when using this?
I've tried it with the maps uploaded on OP, tried with 1v1, 1v3, 2v2, tried it with and without AI, and even reinstalled SC2 to no avail.
I keep getting the "Out of memory" crashes. (oh yeah, fully updated too)

Any suggestions? Or anyone experiencing the same?

You need to have installed the virgin map pack found on the first topic.  Im going to upload rev 40 which will let you set your own map paths.


Yeah, so.. i dont have that folder and i'm still getting this error... reinstalled , deleted all folders having to do anything with sc2 *everywhere*, installed the virgin map pack, patched starcraft to beta 4.. using  rev 40 launcher...

So far, I've installed starcraft and patched it to patch 4 (the latest one currently).

I downloaded your virign map pack (The original battle net maps i Assume).

Placed it in the correct directory.

Yet while it goes to the loading screen, after a while I get the out of memory error. Ive read the whole post and cannot find a solution... Please help!

 
Goto: c:\users\namr\AppData\Local\Blizzard Entertainment\ and rename the battle.net folder to something else.
 
6 player maps and map folder picking will be in rev 40 tonight.




Yeah, so.. i dont have that .bnet folder to rename and i'm still getting this error... reinstalled , deleted all folders having to do anything with sc2 *everywhere*, installed the virgin map pack, patched starcraft to beta 4.. using  rev 40 launcher...


Any ideas? Anyone?


K, so i renamed

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Blizzard Entertainment\battle.net to  something else, and i still crash with the out of memory error..

am i missing something?? is there any other fix for this?

Novice maps are basically "easier versions" of the maps. Rocks and watch towers are conveniently placed so that both players have a strategic advantage against rushing and the like.

@Topic: I don't know if this has been mentioned, but any chance on making the splash screen optional? It sucks if your maps have loading images integrated...  :(

Novice maps are the same for the most part, except that the opening/ramp leading into your base will be rocked off.  It's designed to keep people from rushing.  You'd have to break out of your own base, and break into the other base.. that will take alot of extra time. 
I don't endorse this style of play. I just wanted to get the original, full 14 maps out there for those who wanted them.

possible bug?: I am fully patched up, am using the latest version of the launcher, and am using all the official maps as well as the Starcrack AI. The launcher works fine, and the game works fine, and when the game starts the bots work fine but it doesn't create a base for me! In a 2v2 game I'm the spectator, and in a 1v1 game it just ends immediately because I assume the human player is never created.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I really want to try this out. If I'm being an idiot somehow please have mercy.  :-[

Thanks for the tool guys. If I come to use this regularly I may well donate. All the best.

lol i will have to agree in some point!
i really dont get the point of this button, does nothing new! no race selction no game settings nothing, even worst its like been 2 weeks back with the random launche of the game.


what would really be a step farward would be to have an internal Button like this ne that brings you Directly to Create Game Screen with selectable maps races, EVERYTHING like in b.net bu only offline ;-)


that would be progress indeed!
the current demonstration is dissapointing imho. :-[

Adding Combo Boxes, List boxes and such into a SWF that will load up in SC2 isnt that difficult.  The problem is SC2 doesn't support WRITING out anydata from the flash files, so your injected code would have no idea whats going on the UI.  Writing data TO the injected code was a pain in the ass : ).

Were not teasing anyone just more of motivation so people will join our team(we have already got a couple cause of this vid).

Disappointing! I can't chose spawn point locations for players 5 and 6, but now we have this weird thing that really can't do anything the other launcher never did? I mean, it's not like you get to skip the loading or save any time...


Mainly...Why integrated UI? The feature is USELESS! It just causes more hassle than it's worth.

so you are actually try to do what i said before? an internal launcer? that will be able to write outside the sc2.exe like current launcher and then load a map for gaming?

Unless it actually gives more features than "you now have a flashier menu in starcraft," there's no use in it. Unless it makes us able to restart our starcraft games with different settings and NOT have to go through the loading again, we might as well use an external launcher/loader with an easy to code gui.

Plus, it's not running the latest version. I've patched to version 0.8.0.14593, but the launcher doesn't run it at that. The factory still costs   200/100.

+1

Launcher v44 isn't running the latest version of SC2... the factory is 200 instead of 150. 

The easiest way to tell is to start a game using Terran, and immediately click the build menu manually to build a factory.  You obv won't have enough minerals/gas to build it, but if you hover over the factory in the build GUI, it'll tell you how much it costs.

Update pls?!  ;D   I don't use all the other launchers because they're riddled with issues - this is the only one I've been using but I'd like to use it with the latest build!  Thanks...
