Tool Information
StarCraft: Brood War 1.16.1
Current Version:

APMAlert is a BWL plugin whose primary feature is the real-time display of APM in-game.


  • Shows your APM ingame
  • Shows an ingame timer
  • Shows the current time in-game
  • For observers and in replays, it displays the APM of all players or of the currently selected player (toggleable)
  • Alerts you if your APM falls below a configurable threshold.

How it works[edit]

The APM for a certain time is calculated using an exponential decay of older actions with a fixed decay parameter of about one minute.
