Patch 1.23.1[edit]

Release: 2019-09-24[2]

Features and Improvements[edit]

  • Players may now select their preferred color in unranked multiplayer games. Additionally, we’ve extended the available color palette.
  • Worker counts have been added to the Replay UI.
  • Additional voice lines for game start and game end have been added to the “Voices of Legend” announcer packs.
  • Players in unranked multiplayer games must now choose a race before a game can start. This should help folks that get stuck with a race they didn’t intend to play, and hopefully result with fewer people immediately leaving games.
  • Players will now re-join their previously used chat channel when logging back into Battle.net. This change was made for the folks that would prefer not to view/engage in default chat channels.

Note: Players can re-join the default chat channel via the channel list - the first entry will always be the default channel.

Other[edit]

  • String limits have been updated for map makers
  • Arbitrary RGB color selection for map makers
  • Minor bug fixes

Additionally, please note that we will be updating the Battle.net desktop APP to execute the 64bit version of SCR by default in the coming weeks. (32-bit will remain as an option for Windows users).

Additional notes[edit]

  • SCR is now 64-bit compatible. An opt-in option is now available in the Battle.net application. We’d very much appreciate you guys giving this a go as it will become the only option available on Mac later this year.
  • Input update from PTR - Keyboard commands will now work when the mouse is held down.
  • Voices of Legend announcers have been updated with better stereo sound.
  • StarEdit is no longer included with StarCraft: Remastered. We recommend using SCMDraft 2.
  • SCMDraft 2 offers extended tileset doodads that we do not support in Cartooned. Because of this, some player made maps will not be fully skinned.
