So there is no way to currently beat the map then? I also lose when someone gets near that area.... And do you know if the source of the crash is a trigger or just the buildings themselves somehow messing up the game's programming? I love this game and really hope the map maker fixes the problem. I added both map makers to my friends' list so I could try to ask them, but have yet to see either online.
I honestly have no idea why the tech reactor buildings cause the crash. I checked all of the triggering involved in the map (both the GUI and the galaxy code) and couldn't find any evidence of code intended to intentionally cause a crash. I think it might be related to how tech reactors work and the fact that they are overlapping their pathing in close proximity to other buildings, but I'm still not sure why the crash happens.
It is possible to avoid crashing somehow, as others have stated they have beaten the game. It seems like the tech reactors cause the bug, but what actually triggers the crash is moving into the area above them. So if you stay below and kill them first, you might be able to avoid a crash, although this is just theoretical and not tested.
I could fix the bug and publish the fixed version, but it wouldn't receive the popularity of the previous version, and I don't want to look like I'm trying to steal the map.
Just redo it, give credit to the two people who remade the map for StarCraft 2 and just put your name down for bug fixes. No one would call you a thief...and if they did they obviously don't belong on the computer in the first place so who cares?
