we wanted to use the Alpha Star matches to create new visualizations to compare how a human plays and how the AI plays.
We started out figuring out how sc2reader works by using a random ladder game.
I later found out that only standard ladder games seem to be fully supported.
I am quite competent in python, and with a high level overview of what is required to get sc2reader to open the alpha star matches, I would be willing to undertake the work and make our visualization project available for the community.
I really hope I can get some help with this otherwise we will have to take regular replays and it won't be as interesting.
