Starcraft 2 Beta Cracked & Available for Download

TeknoGod and Darkblizz have successfully cracked Starcraft 2 beta with a working AI against computers. Teknogods team, LazyTown has plans to emulate a Battle.net server in the near future, but for now, it’s just comp stomp. There has already been several releases of the cracked beta, currently the newest version is 5, which has been made available yesterday.

    Ouch – let's hope Bobby is taking note (yes that's the 15 Million Dollar Man), I hope those with shares in Act/Blizz are getting shudders. If he/they fostered a better relationship with the gamers/players that have made the game what it is they wouldn't find themselves a target. Their greed and short-sightedness will cost them millions of dollars along with the old-timers who for nostalgia's would have been happy to pay for a game with LAN. It's just sad to watch the slide when we should be enjoying the game.

    Well done to TeknoGod and Darkblizz – Up yours Bobby!

      What the hell are you talking about? Blizzard released a closed Beta. Some got in, some didn't. Yes, it's sad for those who didn't get a key(me being one of them) but what does that have to do with this so called "sticking it to the man".

      As for the LAN, Blizzard would be idiots if they thought taking away LAN would stop the game from being pirated and played online. It will only be a matter of time before someone finds out how to host games on SCII without the need of Battle.Net. The reason they removed LAN was to stop the general populace of idiots from creating their own servers to play on without paying a cent (unless you count internet fees, which is arguable with these cheaters). Blizzard is just forcing the more determined hackers to find another way to make their own, 'thinning out the herd' so to speak and making those servers easier targets (since there will be less).

      • RageX.ca says:

        Actually we never needed Lan to make private servers without Legit keys. Just a registry edit.

        As for Internet you just need to make a traffic reroute on port that the game use to a fake server and it would work with sc2 just need pvpgn to build advanced features of bnet now.

        They already have all Blizzard games outside of WoW since a while and added Westwood online games after than some EA Games from C&C too.

        They even added a Irc Service to the server software and the server is low on cpu usage i could host around 100 users with a home pc and home cable line.

        So Lan isn't preventing anything.

    • Frozen says:

      LMAO And i want to get into Halo: Reach and Diablo 3 betas right now too! nevermind that they're in not even complete yet. Wrath of the Lich King got targeted in friends and family alpha! What does that make blizzard then? even worse? Blizzard has one of the best relationships with gamers out there and is ALWAYS taking their ideas for their products. I've been a blizzard player for 10 years at least and i'm not in the beta while people who played WoW and SC for a year are. Sure i'm mad, but i'm not blaming blizzard. it's freaken luck of the draw.

          He is correct, only uneducated computer users use McAfee or Norton security products. There are several *fantastic* alternatives available, such as NOD32, Avira(free), AVG(free), Trend Micro and many more. Feel free to do your research, but in any case, no good IT professional would suggest using either Norton of McAfee security products.

            Pros just dont use windows.

            • Demonic says:

              Keep believing that, buddy.

            • Linux ftw!! says:

              For real. Only windows regularly gets that sort of problem.

              • Hypert says:

                i'm sorry but linux is just garbage. if you're not spending your time configuring hardware then you're spending your time trying to interface and be compatible with windows and windows software, and when you get done with all that configuring you're left with an os that allows you to be able to visit websites and maybe play a game or two.

                • Jon says:

                  Linux detects and works with hardware better than Windows does. I run virtually all Linux systems. The only Windows software anybody would care about is Windows games. Anything else, you can find better software alternatives for Linux.

                  I repair a lot of computers. I've convinced some of my repeat / non-gamer customers to try Linux. I have yet to receive one negative comment from one of those people. They are also no longer repeat customers as everything works properly and is stable.

                I used windows for over 7 Years and its Good that i didnt change it.

                • Windows is Mac' says:

                  windows along with the Zune and the failbox 360 shoudl be erased from history. Pro's don't use windows.

                  • thenurandidiot says:

                    A pro can use various tools like Windows and Macs alternatively to use their advantages over the other. You're just probably an idiot.

                    • COME ON! says:

                      Come on guys. Linux has it's advantages, Mac has its advantages, and windows… sort of, but thats not the point. So what if your blind and use windows? So what if you like the glossy performance of the mac? So what if you actually know shit about computers and use linux? Windows sucks, we get it. but don't debate over it.

                  • mac is windows bitch says:

                    windows works fine. at least when i go to find something it doesn't take half a hour like at school with those macs. its like going back to using the first computer that filled the room and only played chess….

                    and iv'r been a playstation fan most of my gaming life and the 360 just looks better and easier interface. though i do miss the controller sahpe of my ps2. ps3 has to many probs

                    • Gil says:

                      man what the hell are you talking about, there are not nearly as much problems with the 360 then the ps3. So much so that microsoft covered a billlion dollar somethin warranty for the "red ring of death"…. get your facts straight

          • Mike says:

            I second this. No Real IT professional will use Norton or Mcafee. They get the job done but are ridiculous resource hogs. Only lazy sys admins would inflict that on their users.

              Any so called virus scanning software is completely pointless. The drain they put on a system over the long run is not worth any benefit you could potentially glean from picking up a virus.

              So rather then bog down my systems with overpriced hardly capable monitoring software that tends to cause continuous problems with various applications I have finally pushed my company toward a Windows 7 environment with nothing more then Windows defender and kick butt firewalls. Life has never been better…

                I'm a little confused as to what is considered a 'ridiculous resource hog'. Norton AV 2010 for example uses only 10mb of system memory at most. If that is asking too much of your system I would probably be recommending an upgrade or a new PC.

                    dude. when the newest release of photoshop came out, something arond 100,000 MAC USERS downloaded a torrent for it. suprise, it was a virus. a virus that all the MAC USERS were completely unprepared for because "macs dont get viruses".

                      No it did not happen. What did though, a Windows user who is too incompetent to use a mac, decided to spread lies. This happens about as often as a Windows user getting a virus.

              • RageX.ca says:

                if your in lan or at a dedi datacenter you usually just remote scan the files from a dedi station for that.

                Best course to be safe is have remote client which do heavy scanning every once in a while and one small client to do ressource scan when loading new files.

                Outside of that Windows Defender did save me once but is not yet a complete solution. And windows firewall is eww i could connect to internet on a app even thought i didn't set it to approve the connection, while it's been asked you can continue.

  3. Animus says:

    I just got this working today. I did however get my copy and necessary files to crack it from hellmakers.com. These were different but similar files and guess what I did not get any viruses from it. It does work and if I do get a virus I don't care. Ive wait 12 years for this f*ckin game.

  4. eXtine says:

    I must admit I'm surprised to see this up here. Its news, and under reported under ground news, but Directions? You guys aren't fearing for your Ass-et's?

  5. a faggot says:

    I downloaded this, I don't give a shit. I didn't get into Beta anyway so it doesn't matter what I do now. I'm still gonna drop cash money on this day one of release

  6. HowToPirate101 says:

    You are basically instructing people on how to go about pirating software. Why would any respectable site publish this?

  7. shade says:

    Interested to know if this works or not? post comments.

  8. robots says:

    gay bots, i'll pass

  9. ImDisappoint says:

    Really? I'm torn between hating Activision and loving Blizzard, but this is getting lamer by the day. I officially hate pirates, as of today.

    • Animus says:

      you're a tool. I bet you love paying taxes too right?

      • WTF says:

        Love paying taxes? Where do you think tax dollars go? I don't know what country you're from. No one loves paying taxes, but the world around you is completely subsidized. Education, the roads, etc. Everyone contributes, so everyone benefits.

        How is piracy like avoiding taxes? How do you think Blizzard is able to pay their staff? We buy the game.

        Have some standards.

        • FreeSCV says:

          I'm going to buy the game ANYWAYS.

          Nothing wrong with playing it on MY schedule instead of theirs. Taxes are for wasting. Sure a good 20% are used on things we need. Schools, Hospitals, etc.

          Most is blown on bailouts and junk though.

          Nothing wrong /w pirates. They are the swarm.

          It'd just be better if this bs wasn't needed and Blizzard understood gamers/pirates/people better. The feedback they could collect is faster then ANY awesome game programmer could singly do.

          • srsly? says:

            Swarm? That's your defense, that enough people are bold enough to do something behind internet anonymity? Locusts swarm; people are supposed to be intelligent enough to have societies.

            • Hobomedic says:

              o.0 I think your getting a little to worked up over this. Its a cracked Beta, unless im mistaken Blizzard was giving away beta keys not charging for them? Blizzard is not losing any money by some people playing the FREE Beta version of their game. Now if this were the real thing then i could see your cause for concern, but its not… and quite frankly you probably dont have to worry about that because Blizzard will no doubt prevent you from playing Online at the minimum.

              PS: Intelligent people do swarm. The internet is a society like it or not… and Oddly enough I would have to say it probably took some smart people to crack this… Otherwise you would have done it yourself.

              • Hobomedic says:

                Not to mention pretty much everyone downloading this will probably buy 1 if not more sets of the game… despite the no doubt high price tag.

                • PackedFist says:

                  yeah man, this game is gonna be awesome. I cant wait to pick up a copy, blizzards never disappointed me, and its been a few years in the making. Hope they keep all the sweet protoss units and building, i cant survive for long with those fleshy units XD

                  • LBK_1975 says:

                    You obviously haven't been around long enough to be dissapointed by Activison/Blizzard.

                    For those of us who bought Starcraft game and played it all those years ago have been waiting for the follow up, only to be jerked around on a chain by a compnay who no longer wants to make quality games – they just want money. The reports I am reading suggest that the beta is falling short of the hype and that it's just another clone…. without LAN it can't be as big.

                    They have removed Hotkeys and dumbed the gameplay down, perhaps ACTI/Blizzard will pick their act up but I doubt it. It's looks like they will be aiming at the kiddie market, and I will tell you right now my nephews and nieces will NOT have the game installed to play with perverts on the net. Hell, I wont be rewarding any gaming company who refuses to listen to their fans and takes steps backwards.

                    without LAN it simply wont have the lstaying power of the origional which is a shame because some money-hungry accountant has killed what could have been great!

  10. shade says:

    why disappointed, can you guys be more specific in your posts? Does this work or not?

  11. asfawf says:

    the Turdburglers AI V5 file is no longer on mediafile reupload?

  12. drugstore says:

    Im have a SC2 beta key and the only AI available right now is 'Very Easy'. It's pretty lame, the only fun to be had is against other players even though they just roflstomp my face in because i havent played the original in 8 years.

    So this really just goes to show that no matter what developers do to delay piracy can and will be cracked.

  13. Arun says:

    To all the idiots talking about piracy: this is a BETA version of the game. This is not the full game. Beta versions are usually released to the public anyway.

    • WTF says:

      Idiots talking about piracy because it's in beta? Remember the Alpha for HL2 that was leaked? That's called piracy…regardless of level of development.

      Your logic doesn't make sense…everyone here talking about piracy is getting the thumbs down…

      • Arun says:

        Let me repeat: this is not the full game. This is not even remotely close to the full game. It has no story. No multiplayer. It allows you to play a few maps against the AI.

        If I were Blizzard I would've allowed this leak to happen since, if anything, it will generate more hype and more interest in the final product.

  14. ZergGotRushed says:

    For all still wondering this works and has actually been out since late Feb. I have a beta kay but still waiting on blizzar's 'next wave' of invites to play some ladder games. Despite already knowing that the actual release WILL get hacked at some point I'm STILL going to pay for this game when its released. I like a lot of people have been waiting over 10yrs to play this. and its that good.

  15. nellyconway says:

    I think Blizzard's approach to DRM is basically limited to the fact that you can't use battle.net without a legitimate copy.

    Personally, I think it's a pretty effective strategy. Especially since SC2 doesn't have LAN, and battle.net is the best part of it.

  16. sandro says:

    does it work on a mac?

  17. TheAristocrat says:

    I see a cease and desist order in your future.

    Works perfectly

    the original AI is really really stupid

    but its awesome

    thanks alot

    I downloaded and now when i try and install it asks me to insert disc 1. what do i do?

  21. tayga says:

    well i downloaded the beta and updated it and it launched fine with a bit of flickering, changed a few settings click on the thing to create an account witch minimizes the game i max the game again to quit but the flickering started to happen like between game and desktop until i was able to quit and now launching it crashes once the loading bar is full after a few sec… BAM the beta sucks. i deleted the stuff under C:Users*account name*DocumentsStarCraft II Beta made no difference same with rebooting not ahure if i should apply those files? might as well give it a shot

  22. Ryan says:

    Can someone help me with this? I have downloaded all the files but don't know where to place them. Whenever I try running the Lazylaunch app, sc2 beta app runs, but them says "unable to launch game"

  23. Pete says:

    It works, but the loading bar and the game both blink constantly…?

  24. roboclove says:

    This is legit. Works perfectly on my humble Vostro 1500 notebook with 2.2BHGZ Core 2 Duo with 2GB Ram and NVIDIA. Sweet.

    Hey, how were these maps made? I wanna start making my own.

  27. Fedaykin says:

    I have to admit, I was a little skeptical at first but this is amazing!! If my internet wasn't being dumb and not letting me download the AI enabled maps it would be perfect, but still just playing with the factions is like the coolest thing ever. I've been waiting on this game for 8 years I think now?

  28. GQKKE says:

    When i try to load a map with launcher, i get a crash upon start, it just says "windows launcher stopped working", what can the problem be?

  29. Jose says:

    I been playing since last night. the crack beta is legit. only single players at the moment. you can only play with an AI pack. all races are playable, are units and techs are available.

  30. Chris says:

    I am having trouble installing the beta client. After downloading to my desktop, and running the executable, I continue through to the panel where you select which folder the game will be installed to. I allow it to create the default folder "StarCraft II Beta" in my programs folder. After selecting Ok, I receive an error message:

    "The file "4/StarCraft II Beta" could not be found. IF this problem persists, please contact Blizzard Technical Support. (IsAbsolutePath/path is not absolute)"

    Does anyone know how to fix this? I am running an up to date version of Windows Vista (I know it sucks). I have tried creating a folder under the name it says it could not find, but I recieve the same error message but the folder name that could not be found now has several unsual characters in place of 4/ at the start of Starcraft.

    I could really use some help!! Or direct me to a site which addresses this. I have searched Google, and spent about an hour researching this, so please don't belittle me for not doing any work to solve this myself.
