ah right, it's a completely different installation, pretty obvious and I dunno why I hadn't thought of that
in that case, can you please look up the registry key for the beta install path? run regedit.exe (type regedit into the start menu in vista/7 or into start->run in XP) and it's pretty self-explanatory, just don't change anything
for the normal SC2 one it's
Code: Select all
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Blizzard Entertainment\StarCraft II Retail\InstallPath
(in 64-bit Windows add "Wow6432Node\" between SOFTWARE\ and Blizzard Entertainment). I'm guessing the beta just has something like Beta instead of Retail but I'm not in the beta so can't test it myself
edit: wait if it's a separate install I guess that means it reads stuff from its own maps folder (ie. "...\StarCraft II 2012 Beta\maps" instead of "...\StarCraft II\maps")? the location doesn't matter at all when you launch the "first" map but it has to be in the exe's maps subfolder for the "select next campaign map" (or whatever it's called) trigger to work properly, do you think I should make it search for campaign.xml files in the beta maps folder as well then?
