Since it seems that unit colours vary based on the computer that you're on, I'd like to conduct a quick survey. What I need is for some people to play a map for me (load up starcraft and actually "play" it) and either take a screenshot or simply tell me what colour the units are in game. At my home computer, all the units are black; but on another computer, they're a splotchy mess. I'd appreciate it if yous guys let me know what colour you're seeing.

Unit colours vary per computer? I have no idea what you are talking about, are you sure the other comp isn't just messed up itself? :|

Anyhow, I tested it and both Ghosts are black.

Haha, you sound skeptical, but it's true! Some computers just display different colours. I think it's a small percentage, but I'd like to know for sure before going further. Thanks for your input, by the way. I appreciate your help!

I was a bit skeptical yes ;). Is there any notable difference in comp. spec. between the computers who do and do not show different colours? A funky video card or driver would be a logical explanation.

Well, I've found the issue. In order to play SC at work, I installed the game on a flash drive and ran it off the drive with a no-cd crack. Apparently, that's what did it.

Okay, because I knew that tilesets can change the units, but I was almost certain that the computers wouldn't do it. Glad to see you figured it out yourself though.

lil-Inferno -- That's legit the only other map trailer I can think of, also by Tux

lil-Inferno -- A&O Saga?

youarenotworthy -- The trailer in question uses that exact music I linked. In fact, it's the main reason I remember it at all, because originally I was thinking it was a Matrix map, but I think it only used that music and that's why i thought that.

youarenotworthy -- Thanks NudeRaider, I found that, it's not it.

the music is not exactly the same, so I'm not sure if it's another piece entirely or just another version but maybe this is it? this would be the trailer to Tuxedo-Templar's Rush map.

youarenotworthy -- Thanks lil-inferno... I'm not sure if it was tuxedo templar. I remember his stuff being good too, but I can't find the trailer the guy made. I might be mistaken about his name. Either way, thanks. I'm gonna give up on trying to find it XD
