Well, I am programming an editor of my own right now, and it can open ANY map SC can read. But breaking the protection would require me to fix the broken sections, and I am not going to make it an unprotector anyways ;)
BUT: I will keep an unprotecting version for myself, of course ;) It shall not become public, however.
So, if you prove me that you are trustworthy enough, you might get a copy of that private version :p
But it'll take quite some time until it works, anyways...
epidion thanks, but both maps are horribly corrupted. Only the top half is ok, for the bottom half only the doodads and resources show up, rest is null terain. And that's in scmdraft, in staredit it's fucked even worse.
