The second installment of the classic Starcraft campaigns. Uses the same mod file as the previous episode, and again, credit for the mod goes to MavercK. Also thanks to Ultraling for his initial work on the Terran episode, and GnaReffotsirk and others for the amazing unit models.


  • all 10 original missions
  • original SC1 units and structures with original stats, including custom models
  • original SC1 Zerg soundtrack
  • all the dialogue, voice acting & other miscellaneous text from the original campaign

"Artistic License"

(some notable differences from the original campaign)

  • Lurkers! Because who doesn't love Lurkers?
  • Mission 5 "The Amerigo" - yep, like it or absolutely hate it, the third person "shooter" action is back
  • two difficulty levels - with a somewhat more aggressive AI than in the original, in order to provide some challenge to the average player


Links to the latest versions, by language. You will need both the maps and the mod file to play (see "How to play" below). For older versions, check the "Files" section.

How to play

  • extract the mod file (SC1BWmod) to your "Mods" folder in your Starcraft 2 install directory (NOT the folder under "My Documents")
  • extract the map pack to the "Maps" folder in your Starcraft 2 install directory (create the folder if it doesn't exist)
  • extract the Campaign Launcher & setup to the same "Maps" folder (not the campaign folder)

Campaign Launcher installation:

  • launch the Starcraft 2 editor
  • open the setup map named SCMRsetup in your Maps folder and click the "test document" button on the top right (or press ctrl+F9)
  • wait until the launcher loads and you're at the title screen, then save the game and exit the map (press esc or F10 to open the game menu)
  • find the save file (named "Starcraft - Mass Recall" by default) in (your home/documents folder)/Starcraft II/Saves/VersusAI
  • copy or move the save file to the saves folder under your account folder (your home/documents folder)/Starcraft II/Accounts/.../.../Saves/Multiplayer (for example; any of the save folders will do)
  • Done! You can now log into the appropriate account and load the save from the load game-screen. You can use this save to play each episode.

more info:

  • You can copy the save file to whatever accounts you want. For example, if you want to play offline, copy it to your guest account folder.
  • If you're unsure of the right folders or can't find the Starcraft II documents folder, log into an account of your choice in SC2, go to the load game-screen, click on a save and click the "show in folder"-button. It will take you to the appropriate saves folder.

    Therea are still error messages when you load the next mission. Additional error messages when you want to place a new zerg building. But no crash.

    Design: Do you really like the design of the Sunken colonies? It is great if you try to copy the original version. But it is really really ugly and looks broken. IMO it is ok if you just take the sunken colonies from sc2. It's still way better than a broken design.

    Just letting you people know that any future updates for the english versions of Rebel Yell & Overmind will be done after the 5th campaign is out.


    You need to have the mod file in the correct folder (see "how to play" above)


    Well, I'm sure you've redownloaded the file by now... hopefully the next version does that less.


    Won't happen in the foreseeable future, at least. Glad you appreciated my little cinematics, though.


    Hey, thanks.

    Um I can't get the .zip to open, I've tried WinRar, Jzip, 7zip, and winzip and they all say the file is either corrupted or damaged.
