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.

    Strange, that sounds all correct. I suppose you do have things like Liberty.sc2mod in the Mods folder? Check that you don't have some stupid access restriction to the Mods folder, that message would also appear if your computer somehow couldn't read the mod file.

    Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn thought that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, dawn will come.

    Hi! I got a problem with mod. Unable to open map but...i done everything you said in guide,instructions here. All files are in place but suprising,when i want to start any mission i got Unable to open map. When i want to do the same in SC2 Editor( starting mission by it) im getting the :Dependency file missing: Mods/SC1BWmod.SC2Mod but its here.

    Path to mod file: C:/Games/Starcraft 2/Mods Path to map files: C:/Games/Starcraft 2/Maps/all the folders + Campaign launcher and setup,which i tryed to use of course,same error as the first one.

    Please respond quickly,i would like to play the campaign fast.

    Starcraft Version: 2.1 - Maybe its fault of that?

    Thank you for your kind words =) Jones and I discussed a donation button a while ago, but there is not much to say about that at the moment. Spread word of the remake to any other friends that might be interested =)

    You know...sorry to spam the comments section, but is there a donation button for you guys. I noticed that Rebel Yell has over a million downloads. If everyone gave $5, then you guys could maybe go get some pizza, buy a new PC or pay your college debt off. I'm doing my own campaign and it is super time consuming!! The amount of work that went into this is epic and you guys should have some compensation...besides the adulation of the community.

    Slay the Beast. That was an incredibly hard mission. Wow!! I had to exploit every resource and had every upgrade, but the UED would not fall. Great mission!!

    I was so bummed about the death animation of the new Overmind. Is that something that will be addressed in the new updates? I loved the cinematic scene. Although, I did not have any corsairs or a shuttle to do the deed.

    Oh...noticed some UED rines in the background taking a break (during cinematic).

    These missions are so good! I just told a friend about this whole deal. He was trying to play SC1 from his old CD (1999 was purchase date) and it wouldn't run on his PC. He was so stoked about this mod. I could tell the 13 year old boy inside was super stoked, however his wife was not happy with me! :)

    Thanks for your reply, Telenil!

    What you and the rest of the team have done is just priceless and your dedication is amazing. In saying that, I wouldn't mind you taking your time in updating the campaigns rather than rushing it.

    Kind regards, Anoobis

    Hi! I remember you now that you mention it :) Not the most constructive discussion we've had, Rasofe openly admits that he doesn't even try to be constructive.

    Release date: hard to say. My part will be complete within a week, but the others have been silent for some time and I don't know what they have left to do. Maybe two or three weeks, but no promises.

    Position of the missions: BtB and OSS will be inserted in Rebel Yell, with the option to play them or skip them once you finish the previous level. We are still unsure about R4, it will probably be alone in a new "Extra" section.

    Thank you again for the appreciation =)
