Deathstar is a map deprotector used to defeat map protection used in some legacy Custom Edition maps prior to tag extraction.


Download the latest release ZIP file, e.g., and unzip it to find deathstar.exe. Deathstar is a command-line program so you need to run it from a command prompt:

deathstar --deprotect <map> [maps...] # Deprotect map at path.
deathstar --zteam <map> # Only remove zteam protection.
deathstar --name <map> [maps...] # Rename all tags to generic names.
deathstar --preview <map> # Removes zteam protection without saving map.
