SCMR version 6.1 and a Retro addon now available! Change log on the download pages.

To update from version 6.0, you can simply replace the files with new ones. Your campaign data and options will not be affected. Mission saves created with previous versions will not work.

August 30th 2016

SCMR Legacy Edition is live.

Downloads - version 6.1.1






  • SCMR (Russian) (Torrent-hosted) Contains different combinations of english and russian audio/text.

For the torrent downloads, you will need a bittorrent client - if you don't have one, µTorrent is a decent one and quick to install (google "utorrent").

I would like to ask you good people to seed the files after your download is complete, for at least a little while, if at all possible. Thanks.


If you've played previous versions of Mass Recall, for a clean install it is recommended you delete any previous Mass Recall-related folders or zip archives from your Starcraft 2 root install directory, and delete or rename the SCMR.SC2Bank file in (Documents)/Starcraft II/Banks

For older versions of the mod, see the "Files" section.

How to Play

Auto install using the SCMR installer

  • place the installer and all downloaded zip archives to your Starcraft 2 install directory (the same folder where your Starcraft 2.exe is located)
  • run the installer
  • use the Mass Recall shortcut created on your desktop to start the game

If you wish to play while logged on to, you will need to take the following steps:

  • Launch Starcraft II using the launcher
  • Alt-tab to desktop
  • Launch Starcraft Mass Recall using the created shortcut

If this method does not work for you on Mac, you will still need to manually install the mod (see "manual install" below)

Manual install

Don't let the number of steps put you off, the installation part is actually very simple and should only take about 2 minutes.

  • extract the map packs (SCMRmaps)to the "Maps" folder in your Starcraft 2 install directory (create the "Maps" folder if it doesn't exist)
  • extract the mod files (SCMRmod and SCMRlocal) to the "Mods" folder in your Starcraft 2 install directory

file paths

note that you can't have both the standard SCMRmod and the retro version in the Mods folder at the same time, one will always overwrite the other

  • 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)
  • when you're at the setup screen, save the game
  • go back to the save menu, highlight the save you just created and click the "show in folder" button.
    this will minimize Starcraft 2 and open the folder containing the save file
  • move or copy the save file to the saves folder under your account
    (your documents folder)/Starcraft II/Accounts/.../.../Saves/Multiplayer (or any other subfolder)
    if you can't find this folder, login to your account, go to campaign -> load, click on a save and click the "show in folder"-button. It will take you to the folder you need to move the save file into.
  • open Starcraft 2 again and exit the setup map
  • login to your account and load the save via the campaign load menu
  • once loaded, click the "install" button
  • when you're at the title screen, save the game again. You can now use this save to launch SCMR, the setup save is not needed.

Note that you can still save and load any SCMR map, as long as you're logged in.

During any mission, typing "quit" as a chat message will take you back to the menu.


Make sure to check out the auto install and manual install video guides also linked above. The end result in these videos is the same, regardless of install method.

Also make sure you're using an up-to-date version of Starcraft 2.

Common issues:

  • Param/values/whatever: if lots of texts are like that, you may have a problem with your Mods: delete SCMRmod and SCMRlocal, and re-download them from the links below. If it is only one or two lines (say, a mission objective), report it in the comments section (in that case, please specify which language you are playing in).
  • Dependency cannot be loaded: The mods are not at the proper place. Check that you have put your mods (SCMRmod AND SCMRlocal) in the Mods folder, as on the picture below.
  • Unable to load map: Your maps are not at the proper place. Check that you have put the episode files such as "1. Rebel Yell" in a folder "Starcraft Mass Recall", itself to be placed in Maps, as on the picture above.

    What's the advantage to 'installing' with the setup map/moving a save to your account vs. just running the launcher map from the editor? Seems like an overly complicated process, just wondering why it's recommended.

    Is it possible for Arbiter's to use the new LOTV Stasis animation instead of the old one (which I think uses the frozen animations from the Zerg ice planet missions in HOTS).

    Also, for all the little nitpicks I've posted about the game, I do love the work you guys have done. Hopefully I'm just helping you all fine-tune it.

    thanks a lot to every moder. You did a really good work!

    I play the mod since a year and it is really fun. Today I wanted to play and then I saw that there is a new version of the mod. So I tried to install the german version, but there is no way to get the german cinematics. Is it possible to upload the cinematics DE zip to a file hoster? The torrent doesn't work. There is no seeder. Or does anybody know another source?

    Edit: I fond a downloadlink in the forum: link to forum There is a link to a dropbox: Dropbox - cinematics DE v6.0

    Hey guys, how do you run this mod with the 64 bit bug that's been around since Starcraft's last patch?

    I can run starcraft itself by switching it to 32 bit but this mod wont work because it seems to be trying to run the game on 64 bit, causing it to not work

    Is it joke? 1.93 GB for ru-local + on (which is blocked as piracy hosting even in Russia) + even with Seedr there are problems with download due to low amount of seeders.
    Is it so problematic to upload only SCMRLocal with low size (Cinematic Addon as along part) and on the NORMAL hosting like Google-Drive or OneDrive?

    Hello! For some reason my Battle Cruisers don't have energy, and only have 50 energy when i do the battery upgrade (that means no Yamato gun...) and other thing, the Terran Academy builds a Nuke for free?
