Help / Map Cache Files
August 25, 2011, 05:31:46 PM
I'm trying to create a portable LAN version of SC2 to play from a flash drive/portable hard drive. So far, the game runs beautifully by just copying and pasting the files from C:\Program Files\StarCraft II. This works fine on most computers.

However, I've run into a problem with the map cache, which SC2 stores here
C:\ProgramData\Blizzard Entertainment\\Cache for vista/7 or here
C:\Users\YOUR NAME\AppData\Local\Blizzard Entertainment\\Cache in XP. The problem is that the computers I am trying to run the game on have this directory (and the entire C drive for that matter) blocked off, which means no file creating/modification privileges.

Is there any way to make the game look for the map cache in another directory, such as its own? Ideally, there should be a way to edit one of the program files (probably SC2.exe) to have it look for Cache\ in the game directory.

I was reading on a blog, and a user had to say this about the whole SC2 LAN thing from China:

"1)this is a heavy modification that needs to be done from chinese to something like english version its not an actuall english crack! just modification of mpq files that try to make it look like English!(even the developer never said ok to darkblizz users with what they did)

also this will need extra knowledge from people to do and above all, most of us dont want to scrue our installation maybe because its also legel, just to try a lan mode. when something clean and english will be available that is not altering gamefiles or has at least a restore process, then we can talk about it.

2)and most important reason, all non chinese users should know that the 90% of stolen data and spam are comming from chincese related software!
we cant be anything but extreamly suspicious when using a closed, mysterious so called "server.exe" file, about what it does! i am not saying it doesn't work in this tw version, ok it does but with what cost? how sure can you be when its not open source? (starcrack team was the best with it's emulator project), what else is gothering and transmitting too? maybe your real account?your visa data? how can you be sure 100% its not a sleeping trojan that will wake and start manimulating your system and data!????
when some people like the Chinese developers have such a "reputation" on "stealing and cyberattack" and when lan for sc2 is all that most of the users want, its pretty damn sure that will find a LOT of positional VICTIMS!

a simple antivirus search will not prove anything!
its very easy to gather system information and open backdoors and no antivirus will ever detect it, because its a damn normal software!

none knows this chinese "developer" he never talked to anybody in english about this, he has no previous record of other successful software and proven reliability to trust him, he doest "cooperate" with anyone trust worthy, so its very risky and i think users should not be exposed. you wanna play with your data and system, do it with your own risk!"

Are we taking this project for granted, or are we too quick to think this program is evil? I just want to make sure that as long as I am having fun with SC2 LAN, some other guy on the other end of the world isn't trying to have fun by draining my resources, personal resources that is.  ;D
SC2 Tools / AI vs. AI utility
June 21, 2010, 11:40:36 PM
I was not sure if I should post this here, or in the AI dev. section.

I am currently interested in pitting various AI's against each other, to see how they would react towards one another, and which would come out as victor.

Is there a program or utility that could be used for such a thing?
(I searched through the forums using the search feature, but found no solid results)

Does anyone know where I could find such a program, or could you point me in the right direction?
