Starcraft: Mass Recall

 

Starcraft: Mass Recall is a project that recreates the classic Starcraft and Brood War gameplay as well as the entire single-player campaigns within the Starcraft 2 engine.  Mass Recall contains 68 maps, 59 from the original Brood War game, 3 that were hidden or deleted on various Starcraft supports, and 6 from the 1998 demo campaign.

 

This mod can be used with any Starcraft 2 version, including the free Starter edition.

Latest News:

June 22nd, 2018:

  • We're hard at work working on a new version of the SCMR mod and the SCMR project itself.  This new update is going to be the most complete version yet of being able to achieve its goal of Remaking Starcraft 1 within the Starcraft 2 engine.  Currently, the project updates will feature:
    • All new background artwork and story videos direct from Starcraft: Remaster
    • Enhanced quality cinematics and music from Starcraft: Remaster
    • An all-new redesigned mission briefing that closely resembles Starcraft: Remaster's designs
    • A brand new Multiplayer SCMR mod designed to be utilized in brand new classic Starcraft multiplayer maps under the SC2 Custom Battle.Net multiplayer melee gameplay!  Test your SCMR skills against your friends, enemy AI, or both as you play in classic multiplayer maps such as Blood Bath and Lost Temple with the full updates of Mass Recall! (Requires sign-in to Battle.Net.  There is no possibility of local LAN play in SC2)
    • More classic Starcraft audio is re-introduced, including classic Starcraft building, ability, and weapon sound effects.  For even more immersive classic Starcraft audio to your gameplay, take a whirl at the Audio toggle options whereby players can pick and choose their favorite classic voiceovers for units across all three races.
    • A brand new Model toggle system, whereby players can choose between inspired classic Brood War versions of their favorite units in each race or retain the default Starcraft 2 models.  Want the original Queen's Nest model?  Citadel of Adun model?  Academy model?  Or do you just want the classic Photon Cannon and Robotics Facility model?  Pick and choose your favorites!
    • Brand new unit and portrait models by default for many key units and heroes, such as the all new Tassadar and Raszagal unit and portraits.   Even Aldaris gets a portrait model upgrade!
    • A 4th level of difficulty: Brutal.  For those players who want the ultimate difficulty challenge.
    • All new advanced AI for enemies, improving their skill at casting abilities, as well as allowing them greater randomness and flexibility in sending attack waves against you.  No two replays will be exactly alike for a more unique gameplay!
    • New special "extra" hero abilities! (if selected)
    • Improved various ability visual effects and their models
    • ....and more!

Stay tuned for news of more updates and a release!

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

     

  • Auto install video guide by DeltronLive

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

  • Launch Starcraft II using the battle.net 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

    Manual install video guide by Jayborino

  • 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.


Troubleshooting

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.
