Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Any of you guys got some StarCraft alphas or betas? Maybe even StarCraft 2?

The only one I know of is the late beta that was leaked one or two years ago...

Anybody got any download links to the really old stuff... Although anything would be nice.

I dont think anyone even have them, it's 10 years ago.
Maybe blizzard still has them on their 10 year old collection.

SC2 is not going to leak for a while. It's under VERY heavy security.

Not to mention Blizzard is made of only 12 developers. I doubt such a small team would leak anything.

Blizzard never leak anything peroid, even if they do, it would be a minor leak. Unlike microsoft, having employee stealing code everyday.

To my understanding there was a leak and I remember back on OSBA that people were talking about how their torrent download was stuck @ ~60%...

Its out there, I am just wondering if anybody has it.

It was the same build as in the link posted above (I just noticed the link in the instruction page above is broken). I still have it, I can upload it if you want.

Technically, it wasn't leaked. It was an open (at least to Blizzard associates) beta.

That build is from about 6 months prior to the official release, and isn't too different. It only works with Battle.net (that's why you have to run your own server to make it work), and most of the units are the same as the retail. There are some differences, though. The Wraith, for example, doesn't cloak at all, and you have to develop its missiles in order to make it fire on air targets.

I wish I could get the Warcraft II based alpha.

YEah, that starcraft beta was a beta test. I believe cds were mailed out with that build on it. All blizzard betas, such as WoW betas that leaked are open/close betas, not leaks.

Here is a good site about the Starcraft Betas and Alphas.
Do yourself a favour and spend some time on it =)
