Hardest version of the Original and BroodWar Starcraft campaign, contains all 6 episodes of the campaign: Episode I: Rebel Yell, Episode II: Overmind, Episode III: The Fall, Episode IV: The Stand, Episode V: The Iron Fist, Episode VI: The Queen of Blades


  • Some maps have the feature of transform regular units into hero units, they have increase attack and defense, they are useful mostly for defense purposes

  • Attacks generated via script to balance the lack of effectiveness of the attacks by the AI

  • AI have infinite resources to balance the fact that it doesn't care much about collecting minerals, except when the AI has insane difficulty

  • Maps have a plenty of resources to balance the increase of difficulty, you don't run out of them easily

    Most of the maps use now hard, insane difficulty in the AI for challenging purposes

  • AI now have a more establish base with more units, defenses, buildings so is not easy to defeat

  • Maps have a redesign to improve the movement of units across them, defense of your base, etc

The game is indeed harder, but man the maps are large, ugly and boring.

I liked that author decided not just change AI triggers but add hero units and change map layout - bold call. Some maps look "uglier" but I like it, I care more about difficulty than aesthetics in this case. So far I like difficulty, it's not too hard and I hope it won't become impossible to beat like on Insane Edition.

Here's my walkthrough:

NudeRaider -- Dem0n
Dem0n shouted: who said you were crossing a line
NT kinda did Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet shouted: I always thought it was kind of messed up to impersonate someone without their permission, but I guess that's artistic license for you. When you get into the realm of using AI to do it.. it seems even worse to me, but I'm not sure why

Zoan -- and tbh no, this is exactly the type of thing ai should be used for. Now if you were monetizing it, I would say you should emohasize you used ai for the voicelines

Zoan -- he asked if "am I now crossing a line"

Oh_Man -- but if i want to make a LOTR map and use AI generation to give aragorn etc more voice lines am I now suddenly crossing a line? wen did we get so snowflakey

Ultraviolet -- NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: Ultraviolet absolutely. You can count me among those folks. ;) But I understand it. It's a silly name only kids find funny. However to know that and still own it that would be the manliest move in my eyes.
Yeah, I can appreciate that perspective. I've used so many handles over the years, I think I had less attachment to NerdyTerdy than some of the folks here. Just never changed my name much here cause it was expensive :P I still kind of like the NT name, but definitely prefer Ultraviolet. I think UV has been my handle for around half my life at this point O.o

NudeRaider -- So the question is will we as a society become resilient against these forms of attacks? Either by detecting or accepting? Find new ways to deal with it? I guess we will have to wait and see.

da real donwano shouted: Society is not ready for the AI power we're being given. I'll die on that hill.
"social media" is imo a much better example for "society was not ready for it". We haven't seen yet where AI will lead us. It has a lot of potential for good, but then again, so had social media. For now the only potential for abuse in AI that I see is in forgery of various kinds.

NudeRaider -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: guys what are your thoughts on AI voice cloning vs someone doing impressions. why is one moral and the other immoral? or do you think both are fair game
For me it's the intent that make the difference, not the method. If you copy someone for profit or harm, then that's immoral. If your goal is satire then all bets are off. I think people are just afraid to be deceived because AI removes skill from the equation and painting AI usage as immoral is their weak attempt to defend against it.
