Patch 2.04

    SO YEAH HERE IT COMES TOMORROW!!!.

    Quote from Taintedwisp: Go

    In a few days, we’ll begin patching StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty to version 2.0.4, which will bring a number of new features to the game—features that all players can then immediately begin enjoying together.

    Wings of Liberty 2.0.4 includes:

    An all-new user interface with new menu screens.

    The launch of in-game Clans and Groups.

    New Replay features, such as Watch with Others and Take Command.

    A multitude of Editor improvements.

    New matchmaking options: Training Mode, Vs. AI Mode, and Unranked Play.

    Players Near You, so you can find other StarCraft II players on your local network.

    New customizable Observer UI.

    Other enhancements coming with patch 2.0.4 include a revised help section, new game privacy options, new group sounds, and language selection (in some regions).

    All of the above improvements will also be included in StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. When the expansion is released on March 12, players who upgrade will be among the first to experience the new campaign, new multiplayer units, enhancements to existing units, the new leveling system, new multiplayer maps, new tilesets, and new rewards such as skins, dances, portraits, and decals.

    The background download for Wings of Liberty patch 2.0.4 was activated on February 9. We strongly encourage all players to leave the launcher running for an extended period of time at some point over the next few days to ensure that you’re ready to play when the patch goes live.//

    gonna be nice because it'll mean models exported with startools should work with WoL.
    gonna be not so nice because i know SC2BW has issues on hots client =/
    guess i had to fix them eventually.

    It's not the first long maintenance they do... this pay still not be the new patch, besides, there was never info when such patch would be added to WoL, only that it would be added. It will be very useful for the Editor - I still use WoL editor, will wait for HotS release to get to the new editor even though I have Hots beta.

    What do you think will be brought to the editor? I hope for some more triggers or better made data where you don't load all the needless stuff, can barely load when too many numbers and fields. OR ofc 'Search' window for theText Editor? - That would be about time..

    While it is fine for the Editor, I don't see a reason to play Melee, they never touched Zergcraft ala Infestor there..

    Nah This is it :P. They said a few days 4 days ago :P. Everything is pointing to this being it :D

    And HoTS DID change Infestor its no longer what the zerg army is based around :P.

    Protoss Got a great new type of unit compositions SKytoss, and Terran has viable mech.

    As far as I know, they're basically patching us to the heart of the swarm editor. So all (or at least mostof ) the HotS editor features should be coming our way as of....tomorow :D Patch Notes Link.

    Also, general reminder. Last time a big patch was issued, people lost their sc2 mods folders. Blizzard likely fixed the issue, but it's always better to keep backups of anything you might need!

    Well actually I KNOW there are a few new things that weren't in the beta, Such as a trigger to force player options. such as simple command card.

    Load Simon's Relocalizer 2.0.0: http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=357860

    Put it into your WoL installation folder, start it and switch to the advanced tab. There you need to enter "enSG" which is important to make the launcher actually load the patch.

    Problems I noticed that have been fixed from hots beta 2.0.3:
    - my text preview is not bugged anymore (buggy in hots beta)
    - data module shows tooltips on win8
    - dialog labels can have an "automatic" color now which makes it use its text tag colors (like in WoL 1.5.4). Other color options enforce that color in the whole label overriding color tags within the text.

    TODO to fix your maps from hots beta to 2.0.4:
    - Set every label's color from white to automatic

    General A new preload Info dialog has been added for defining game data, asset files, and banks to be preloaded in-game. This is accessible from the Map/Mod menus in all modules.

    So we now get to choose what gets preloaded. O.O Fuck yes

    Method to fix the dialog item label color that is now enforced.
    Before the patch, the default setting was "White", so all your labels are now "White" after the patch instead of using the color you wanted it to give via text tags.
    To revert to their old behavior, you need to chose the "automatic" option as their color.

    But this does not appear in the color presets in the replace value window which means that you need to use the custom script that you can see in the picture as a new value. This value is the actual value of the preset.
    This is the easiest method I found to fix the problem in everyone's map. I just didn't want to fix the 177 dialog label creates by hand. ;)

    But you can't use "replace all" as this would make all images in your map turn to be black because they have a color setting, too.
    You need to find each "Create Label" action and replace it there by pressing the "Find" button until you find a label which you fix by pressing the "replace" button.

    I mean, no reason to play melee in WoL, HotS will do for sure, along with mapmaking.

    Wow, good call. I almost forgot how I got it wiped out, and was gonna forget doing it again. Are the maps safe?
