There's currently a bug which doesn't allow to save or load your progress during the mission. It is affecting all 1.22+ custom campaigns which utilize modding. Fix will be available as soon as possible. Other features should also work fine.
UPD: Well, maybe the game itself will not work at all as well. Thanks to another "small" update for R.

Heymen. It is time for a new update, and, as i promised, it brings you the last campaign of Alternate primary series - The Lord of Fire.
Of course, this doesn't mean the end of support for Brood War Alternate. I will continue releasing patches and fixes, and, at some point in the future, will expand the story even further in co-op episodes, which will be placed before, after and alongside the main events of the campaign, providing new gameplay experience with even more custom tech trees for various factions, as well as showing the events which were poorly covered or only mentioned in the six main episodes. Unlike certain development company, i care about that sort of stuff.
Anyway, this is all about the future, but allow me to introduce you the present - list of changes for the new Brood War Alternate update:
  • Global - A new episode - The Lord of Fire - has now been released. The enemies from distant core regions of the galaxy are now in total control over the Koprulu sector, and there's almost no one capable of opposing them. Even with all what's left of the Protoss, Zerg and Terran armies combined, the battle will be very, very far from easy.
  • Global - Fixed a bug which caused AI scripts sometimes fail after player loaded a save.
  • Global - Implemented Remastered Framework which fixes misalignments of various HD sprites.
  • Global - Minor changes to all Protoss dialogue lines.
  • Global - Short tooltips added for all Primal units and buildings.
  • Global - Improved Primal Zerg Regeneration rate.
  • Global - Updated readme.
  • Protoss 08 - Added a Warp Gate which now acts as a start point for periodic attacks. Similar mechanic will be represented in several Lord of Fire missions.
  • xTerran 4 - Increased Green AI difficulty.
  • xTerran 7 - Norad II is now capable of using Yamato Gun.
  • xZerg 1 - Briefing dialogue lines changed.
  • xZerg 3 - AI attack & defense patters changed.

Just to clarify: The current mission set is single player only, but later you will add several coop maps here and there that complement the single player campaign. Right?

So... do I dare challenge the xTerran 8 map again?

Looking forward to more updates.

Well presumably it works as intended now. Hard to say since i have only a very remote idea of what could cause the issue, but several tests on my part confirmed that it should work.
Not like you missed much there anyway.

Just one question about the 2nd protoss mission in lord of the fire. WHat the hell is this? How i am supposed to clear out bilions of wardens without reavers or other tech???? This map is not possible to complete.... And what is the point of spore cannon if i CANT rescue them?



None.

The most heavily fortified planet in the Koprulu sector.

My testers so far proved otherwise. In fact, they consider it the easiest map in Lord of Fire (excluding micro missions).

Those are Primal ground-to-space defenses which were had to be shut down for Protoss to be able to land. Don't serve gameplay purposes.

Hey guys.
Apparently, Alternate has managed to inspire someone into making a fan mission called Reincarnation, which is basically an alternate version of Ressurection IV, made by someone known as Alexey Tabakov.
It is not intended to work with BWAlternate mod file, so if you decide to play it, you should launch it like a normal Remastered campaign/UMS map, using default 1.2+ client.

Reincarnation can be downloaded here.

Some screenshots of the map:

payne -- It's interesting to see that I used to be so active that I still have 1.45 posts per day as a statistic on my profile.

payne -- Eventually, I did a trip in Europe too, but ended up hurting my back, which brought me back to Montreal and now I'm finishing a Bachelor in Computer Science this very semester. Leaving again for some travels in Europe in 2 weeks.
[08:12 pm]
payne -- It was a 2 years and 2 days long trip. From Montreal to Alaska, back to Montreal (to drop swap some gear that I had taken for Alaska), back to BC, down to Panama. I -did- end up taking a plane from Panama because I had encountered boats willing to give me lifts, but not to Columbia, so after 2 weeks I decided it was time to move on. Landed in Columbia by plane, and continued hitchhiking down to Argentina, and then back up to Ecuador. Then -again- I ended up taking a plane from Ecuador to New York because after 2 years, I was getting tired of it. Hitchhiked north from New York, but cops ended up giving me such a hard time I had to buy a bus ticket to get back to Montreal. :P
