Uninstalling Beta Question

Monsterous

In the Shadows, Lurking.
If i uninstall the Beta from my computer, will it also remove the Editor, or any custom maps you have stored/created?

Any help appreciated :3

What else would you expect after you uninstall? :rolleyes: I'd love to hear your tall tale.

As for maps, after I did my uninstallation, I did not see any of my maps. Unless, I'm looking at the wrong folder.

If you go through the uninstall procedure it will remove everything to do with Sc2 Beta aslong as it is stored in the directory where you installed the Beta.

So in other words, all data including the beta that is found in the Sc2beta folder on you're computer will be deleted, Including the Editor.

Having said that, if you move the maps that you want to keep, into another folder, say a folder stored on you're desktop. Then when you remove the beta, you're maps will still be left in the folder in the desktop.

Hope this helped.

That's what I'm doing, I have my maps in a separate folder, but I pre-ordered online so I don't expect to get the game until friday or so. But even still, move your maps to a separate folder and then uninstall.


I actually have an uninstall question as well. I have a Mac, and as you may or may not know, Macs do not have a set uninstall program like windows does. Instead I have to drag stuff to the trash, but this could leave some unwanted files if they're in a folder somewhere else on my computer. So does anyone know if there are files that save elsewhere that I need to get rid of to complete the uninstall? I know about the replays being saved under documents, but are there any other than that?

You'll have to contact Blizzard employees about that. StarCraft II Technical Support forum is gone.

    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day
  • S songbird:
    Glad to see some interest in the IS3 NUON reprint. :)

  • The Helper The Helper:
    Thank you Carl for making that happen that just might be the spark we need.
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm confused and amazed that NUON and TWV's news postings are the things still active.
  • Varine Varine:
    Or Tom Mai, not TWV
  • Varine Varine:
    Whatever happened to Cheshire? Or Firecat, whatever his real name was?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've been using both claritin and fexofenadine or something like that recently alternately and that's been kinda working, I don't feel like my face is going to explode at least. Eyes are still itchy as fuck though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I dunno, haven't seen Firecat in a long while now.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, we have new file attachment size limits now.
  • Varine Varine:
    Are they bigger?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, new max size limit is 64 MB, to accommodate NUON-Dome emulation.
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I ever ran into a file size problem before. What was it before?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've had file type issues before I think, but I haven't uploaded anything since like 2010.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    alot smaller than that basically barely anything and it would have been different then 2010 because of the forum upgrade
  • Varine Varine:
    lol I forgot this used to look different
  • Varine Varine:
    It's by far the brightest webpage I regularly visit, the first thing I usually do is try to figure out dark mode.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    If you invert the colors, The Helper Forums looks amazing
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    It still has that blue theme at the top
  • Ghan Ghan:
    There's no particular hard limit to attachments. "Something reasonable" is preferred to "a size large enough to fill up the server disk"
  • B Badmanhop (Andy):
    I would be interested to.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Feel free to contribute to NUON.
