Modders bring original Star Craft and Brood War to StarCract 2 #StarCraft2 #modding


PC Gamer has the story:

Quote:
If you can't wait to get your hands on StarCraft 2: Legacy of the void, here's something that might tide you over. Modders have ported over the entirety of the original StarCraft campaign, and Brood War, into StarCraft 2. You'll need the Heart of the Swarm expansion, though if you're interested enough to go back and play the oldies I'd wager that you already own it.

You can find the download here, with a quick guide for how to install it.

The 'StarCraft: Mass Recall' mod even adds 3 maps that were 'hidden or deleted' from the main game, and 6 from the demo campaign that came out back in '98. I've never played either of them, but if they're anything like as good as the campaigns in their modern incarnations then they're worth a look.
Modding FTW.

Ahhh, back when Blizzard's stories weren't awful shit that actively made me care less about their games despite solid and varied gameplay.

I'm a sucker for Blizzard, all the fun I ever wanted without the pain of trying to make OG Starcraft run on my pc.

Thats pretty awesome. Big Starcraft fan and the fact that LOTV and Fallout 4 come out the same day is going to break me... So much awesome

I played what must have been an earlier version of this mod a few years ago. Back in the original Starcraft days, I got pretty good at that game, to the point where the single player campaign levels weren't really much of a challenge. As soon as I got past the first couple of tutorial levels in the SC2 conversion, holy balls I got clock cleaned. The AI in starcraft 2 is just far superior.

So, not only are you going to get improved graphics here, but it'll be a nasty challenge.

Wow, that's pretty cool! I need to give the base game in SC2 another go.

We made it through Starcraft II and I'm part of the way into the expansion pack. I think my Son must have beat the final mission in the first part of the game, because I know I was getting my clock cleaned when I was playing it.

Yeah, some of the missions beat my butt. I'm not a Platinum Player.
