Does this give us the ability to edit reps? I hope it doesn't. ;)

Yep, it does.
I'm working on my new project -- W3G Workshop

I don't think Blizzard will be glad to hear that...

I won't give the function of changing player name, might allow changing OB's.

The mainly function should be modify chat words(used to add comments to replay/analyze the game).

Hmm I'm curious what will be Blizzard's reaction. Anyway it would be nice to remove referees chatlog in some games.

However I'm still afraid that if someone sees that you are able to make such a program, he may try to make his own version, allowing him to do more other things with reps.
I guess I should stop wondering, the time will show.

Actually this algorithm is not guessed out, but cracked from asm codes. So we'd better not put it in replay document, so that little ppl would get it to write such a program(I also think I should remove this thread later)

I definately agree with that. I will NOT include it in the replay docu (i will just remove some 'unknown' marks since we now know that it is really the checksum).
I would really appreciate if you change the thread too. I guess the people we can trust have seen it now and imho this information is more a threat to the community than a benefit.

Yep, modify the first post, Soar.

OK, completely removed it,  :P
