SCMR version 6.2.1 - a small bug-fix update to SCMRmod - is out.


With that, SCMR is done for the foreseeable future. To anyone wondering why our team hasn't done X or has left in a bug - ultimately it comes down to a simple truth: time is limited. We're a small team with varying levels of involvement and none of us are actively involved in this project all the time. Right now we're at a point where we need to step away from it and regroup.


It's likely we'll come back later at some point and maybe do some more playtesting, watch some playthroughs, gather all the feedback and go over all the remaining issues and things we feel should be improved more thoroughly. No promises though.


A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the project in some way (it's a long list which I'm not going to write here, just read the credits) and thanks to all the players for the massive amounts of feedback and continued interest in this project. That's what's been keeping us going for years.

SCMR version 6.2 now available! Change log on the download pages.

Updated files: SCMRmod, SCMR Map Pack 1/2 & 2/2, SCMRlocal, Retro addon. You will need the updated SCMRlocal for version 6.2, currently only available in English. Updates for other languages coming soon.


To update from 6.0 or newer: simply replace files. Your campaign data and options will not be affected. Mission saves created with previous versions will not work.

NOTE that if you have the cinematics addon already installed and you wish to use it, DO NOT replace "SCMRcinematics" with the file included in Map Pack 1/2. This is a placeholder file required only if cinematics addon is not used.


As of version 6.2, the "SCMR Cinematic Player" file in your Starcraft Mass Recall root directory is no longer in use and can be deleted.


Downloads - version 6.2.1


  • SCMRlocal (English) (REQUIRED) Note: contains localized text and subtitles for chinese, french, german, korean, russian and spanish languages. Corresponding language should be selected in your Starcraft II client.
  • Cinema Addon (English) v6.2.1 (optional)








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.
