Came across this slide deck authored by blizz employee:
http://0xeb.net/wp-content/uploads/2018 ... ulator.pdf

I know this may not be the appropriate subforum (article is about SC) but I enjoyed the read and learned a thing or two, figured I'd share.

It's pretty cool that they actually cared about supporting these old unofficial maps.

Cool, just read through that whole thing. Thought it was really fascinating! It's kind of funny that they didn't have the old source code anymore so he had to reverse engineer the Starcraft exe himself. lol

They had the source code, just not debug symbols for the released version of 1.16.1, the version these maps were written to support.

He ended up building a "very close" binary from source + messing with compiler options.
