This is a modified version based on Esper's StarLauncher v0.41.

Known problems:
1. AI won't work in some maps (currently known: Blistering Sands and Scrap Station)
2. Game displays 'Replay Desync' while watching replays in some circumstances, possible reasons:
  AI mod currently selected not matches the AI mod used for the replay
  Team and/or alliance options not match

 
v1.34d
Fixed the issue regarding program launch failure due to MSVCR90.dll is missing

 
v1.34c
Fixed the bug regarding alliance settings were not loaded properly
Fixed the start location mark position


v1.34b
Fixed the bug regarding map settings were not loaded properly
Fixed the bug regarding start location selection has no effect
Added start location marks on map thumbnail (position is not very exact yet)
Enabled team and alliance options for replays (some not work replays might work if AI, team and alliance options match)
Moved log file from <GamePath>\Support\SC2Launcher.log to <LauncherPath>\SC2Launcher.log (feel free to delete the old log file)

  • Auto display player settings (type, race and color. no team) while selecting a replay file
  • SC2Ext.dll renamed to SC2Launcher.dll
v1.32 updates:

Mods\AI\My Custom AI\TriggerLibs
...

v1.11 updates:             
  • Added an option to enable/disable alliance resource shareing. (Alliance resource sharing is forcely enabled in v1.10)
v1.10 updates:             
  • All settings(Team/Race/Color/Slot) are applied in an injected DLL, no modifications to original maps.

Why does this launcher get a new thread every single time it is updated?

Maybe make sure you have the original maps? You select what maps to load, so it shouldn't matter as to the location.

i used the maps i was using from the last launcher, so it should be original, it's the syko's map pack, with loading screens, or is that not the original one?

nvm, it works now, guess first time just broken or something

Works like a charm! Thanks for the update! This is definitely my favorite launcher as of now. It's got all the colors, allows team selection, and race selection. I have everything I need! :)
