StarCraft II Launcher
« on: March 01, 2010, 05:28:55 PM »


StarCraft II Launcher is a that let's you select a map, a modification and some player settings and it can then magically start the game with that map, modification and settings applied.

To play a map, simply download a map (it doesn't need any AI changes or stuff) from a site like http://www.nibbits.com/sc2/maps/. The Team StarCrack AI 6.1.1 is included in the package as an modification.

Download version 2.3.1:

Ah, bummer, you got my hopes all up that you found a way to select race and team, until I read your bottom sentence. :(

Is there anyway to mark the file as safe so avast doesn't detect it everytime?

hey there. can you help me solve my problem?

ive got:
-set of 'clean' maps downloaded directly from http://www.nibbits.com/sc2/maps/
-5.5 no chtn ai from http://darkblizz.org/Forum2/ai-scripts/starcrack-ai-official-thread/

what have ive done:
-moved the 'clean' maps to ...\SC2Launcher2.0\Maps\
-using http://www.zezula.net/en/mpq/download.html ive extracted TriggerLibs into ...\SC2Launcher2.0\Mods\StarCrack AI 5.5 (no ai cheating)\

now the problem.
when i try to run some of not moded maps downloaded from nibbits i get this error:


tho when i am using any of modded ones such like those two: http://darkblizz.org/Forum2/ai-scripts/5-6-player-hacked-ai-maps/new/?topicseen#new i can run them good without problems, game starts ai loads and your interface allows to manipulate number of AIs on map



summing up:
your loader seems to have problems loading/modding those maps with such errors:
(those are downloaded from nibbits maps with filenames changed from checksums to normal)

(2) Desert Oasis Novice.s2ma
(2) Desert Oasis.s2ma
(4) Shakuras Plateau Novice.s2ma
(4) Shakuras Plateau.s2ma


(2) Steppes of War Novice.s2ma
(2) Steppes of War.s2ma
(4) Lost Temple.s2ma


hope this will help =)

EDIT:
also using http://www.dependencywalker.com/ ive found this:

This has been my favourite so far.
However, i find it strange that this launcher was able to display map info long before other launchers got released with similar functions.
Also strange that this launcher is able to load AI onto maps that hadn't been "hacked". Others still require 33+ maps while this launcher manages everything with only 9.
Strangest of all is that no-one has commented on this fact.
 
No problems, only when i turned FPS counter on
the game got very choppy from the beginning.

The best launcher for me because you can load any map in spectate mode (fully with Computers) to check progress of AI scripts. :D
Nicely done!

I'm using XP and don't have any problem. Try with compatibility mode for launcher if you have Vista/7 (Properties on file -> Compatibility tab -> check Run this program in compatibility mode for - Windows XP -> OK).

Another cool thing is that you can set Disabled for slots and you'll have how many Computers do you want on. Lovin' it!  :D

still not working =( same errors. maybe ill redownload those ones :> lol that would be uncool

-

well thats why i use this loader. no need to gather all map modifications. all ive got to have is few 'base' maps and mod them. hope there will be 3.0 with alot more features :P

EDIT:
nope redownloading maps did not helped.
i have problems with maps mentioned in my earlier post downloaded from:
http://www.nibbits.com/sc2/maps/browse/?p=&sort=date&order=asc&
from those first on the list, added Feb 19, 2010 only

Sorry, I didn's read your post... you told about manipulating number of AI too :P
I have Windows 7 in dual boot and I tested first 2 maps from your link: (2) Blistering Sands Novice and (4) Shakuras Plateau (both Feb 19), I used StarCrack 5.5 with TriggerLibs extracted, I set only 2 Computers on Shakuras Plateau and is working. If you have 7 (not Vista), maby you'll need a fresh install...
