Starcraft 2: Tool – AIO Launcher, Cache, & Maps for patch 13

Created by Vernam7 • All credit to original authors and testers.

SC2ALLin1 is an automated tool that makes possible for you to play Starcraft 2 beta offline, without cd-keys etc, load matches in skirmish battles, and watch replays. It doesn’t mess with the original game files, nor to allow you play WAN, nor download updates normaly through the original Starcraft II shortcut (unless you are a legit beta player)! This is the perfect tool, for players who wish to play Starcraft II, who are not in beta. It’s a very easy UI no need to copy paste files arround. Install Starcraft 2 beta, download the latest cache files, and then this tool, and you are ready to go!

This post contains maps, All-In-One Launcher, and patch 13 cache files.
