Batch Export And Print Script/Tool stopped working in 10.2

Hi all. I have been using below script/tool for a very long time and have gotten used to how easy it was for me to take 100+ maps, click 2 things and come back to beautifully exported or printed dataset. My tool has stopped immediately after we upgraded to 10.2 from 10.0. I am sure it is something as silly as missing a squigly line somewhere. It seems that every release of arcmap is followed by some minor change. Initially with VB to Py I had to source all scripts to make them work and now my main stopped working. Any thoughts/comments would be appreciated. Thank you.

Batch Export and Print
  This script takes MXD files
  and exports all the maps as selected
