For the record, I wouldn't call the New Avalon maps campaigns per se either since they're RPG style maps with an extra boss fight added on in the second map.

This is an awesome list by the way!
I'm actually in the process of playing through some of them now.

I tried out what was supposedly the best custom campaign for SC2 and it made my brain hurt.
But it did remind me of how awesome some of the old SC campaigns were!

So while I was busy being lazy as hell, looks like StratosTygo released a couple new campaigns. Civil Conflict, the latest installment in the Star Aidaris series, and the unrelated StarCraft Alternate, which uses the interesting concept of changing the race of each campaign but keeping the general story the same. Whether or not the execution is good is yet to be seen. I've added both to the list.

There appears to be less leftover .tmp files this time. That's a plus! ;)

On another note, this thread is less of a fan campaign playthroughs thread these days and more of a fan campaign listing thread. Hmm. Depending on whether or not I get around to playing through all these I might change the title. I do intend to keep this updated after finishing my playthroughs, as well. I'll consider making a secondary thread for the playthroughs, but for now I'll keep it like this till I can figure out where I'm going with it.

Once again, thanks to adamnesico, who has much more patience with archive.org than I do. More coming soon.

Dammit, somebody stole the idea that's been festering in my brain for years! :P

StarCraft: Reincarnation by deepstrasz (September 2012) has been added to the known list.

Also, the thread has been retitled and somewhat reorganized. As is probably obvious by now, the playthroughs haven't happened yet and won't for a long time, so I'm going to just title this thread what its actual purpose is.

NudeRaider over at SEN pointed out that the list has grown enough that some historically important and high quality campaigns are practically drowning in it. A best-of list was suggested, so with that said, I'd like to request anyone who has the time to list on this thread the campaigns they found most meaningful to them or historically important, and I'll arrange a list based on that. If I remember to.

Oh yeah. Damn.

I'll have to find a more permanent solution later, but here's a sendspace link for Echoes for now.

A list of the most important?
For that we have the campaign list of campaign creations. And the forums of the contests, u can feature the winners and seconds.
Well, apart of the list of this web, comes to my mind:
-The Antioch chronicles, it was featured in this web in the past ( I wasn´t, but I like to travel to the past in the wayback machine). The first good fanmade campaign, it´s said.
-Vile Egression. Some says it has the best gameplay ever done. Some requested to feature it in the main list.
- I´ve played and liked ACMD and Legacy of a Warrior (has some bugs).
Ah, there are too the samods campaigns. Some are featured here, as Flame knives and Aeon of the Hawk, believed by many to be best after Legacy of the Confederation. I´m playing Vagrants and I like it.

Sorry for replying so late, I had no internet.

Yes it did. I have no money right now to revive it so just hold on for some months (years maybe).

Hello, I was wondering if someone could help me with a problem starting some of these campaigns.

I try to run the Black Sun executable, the screen turns to black for a second or two, then I get the message "starcraft has stopped working" - in 640x480 resolution.

I can run Brood War fine [play on iccup with no problem] and also I've run the Egression campaign succesfully.

I am using Win7 64, have customised all starcraft shortcuts to set core affinity to 1, disabled visual themes and set compatibility etc., I am using a Starcraft No Install folder to run BW.

Any ideas on what could be the issue?

Tolias, we are sorry that we didn't approve your post way before. We tend to check less in the Starcraft 1 sub-forums nowadays.
