Open a published map?


Active Member
Hey ScII people,

It's a time ago that I played ScII, about 5 years ago
Now I just installed it again and have a question

How do I open a map that I published 5 years ago?
It's not on my computer anymore since I uninstalled the game in the past



AKA: Demtrod
I assume you mean 5 months?

If you published it as open, you will be able to get it by searching for it on battlenet (in your editor). If you did it as a closed map, not even you will be able to open it :(

Nice you still here X-maul!! x

no, I meant 5 YEARS I uninstalled SCII
now I installed it again and want to edit 'garden defense' I created then
I cannot find it anywhere on my computer, I even downloaded the map before entering the game 'lobby'

I remember I uploaded the map as 'locked'

Is there any way I can sign in and edit this map?


And as the moon rises, we shall prepare for war
You can't sign in and edit it I don't think, but you can get the map out of the cache and extract it.

Also I guess he is technically kind of right, since SCII came out in 2010... maybe four years, but the point is null as the only relevant aspect is you don't have the original files.

    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?

    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)

    I really do not want to move to California otherwise I might consider it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah California is not anywhere you really want to live
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is why I did not take the job Blizzard offered me back in the day, there is no way I could have moved my family there on what they were offering, not even close and that was like 20 years ago
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah they wanted me on the tech support team when they did not get me they got one of the next MVPs in Dinobot
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot was one of the youngest of the MVPs tkron probably could have worked for Blizzard but he had a good job in Chicago doing business programming already
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot probably still works for Blizzard would love to reconnect with that guy
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I wonder what ever happened to Wargasm?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    This new version of Xenforo really is awesome
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Wargasm is still around. He works for the domain registrar where is kept.
