iCCup TV LIVE Streaming

As many of you are aware, HLTV is a technology that allows you to watch games LIVE. That technology is being successfully used in many Half-Life and Counter-Strike events. Those game lovers are really the lucky ones since they can watch games live without downloading a lot of useless Gbytes.


Every time i watch Starcraft Youtube videos with some awesome video resolution, like 320x240, I feel as if I'm blind. Was that a Firebat or Marine? Is the caster retarded? What were the upgrades? who knows… So, i decided to make something like HLTV, just for StarCraft. It was very hard to make this idea a reality having only 30 free minutes per week. But hell! At this very moment this project changes its status from «it may work» to «it works». And thus the iCCup TV Streamer/Player is born.



Boring history lesson


A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, someone called «Lasgo» made some toolkit called named «Lasgo Broodwar TV Observer». I've never seen this project nor used it, but as far as I know this was the first time this idea manifested. This project was dropped after a Starcraft version update...


Later, the BWTV project by Ashur arrived. It was late 2004 — early 2005 if i am not mistaken. The latest version that I found at bwprogrammers contained game sprites (Ashur decided to draw sprites manually, while Lasgo's version worked with replays). As far as i know there wasn't any progress on that project either. It is a pity I never had any chance to work on it.

So what the heck is this?


To clear up some confusion, these plugins basically let you:

1. Stream your games LIVE as your playing WITHOUT the use of a screen capture program, using the methods similar to saving replays, but instead of it being saved, it is broadcasted live for people to watch as you are playing.


2. Watch the LIVE streams of other players who have broadcast their games through the «iCCup TV Streamer» Plugin. It may look like your just watching a replay, however instead of watching a saved game, you are watching it as it happens live. (With a 3 minute delay of course, so you can't use this for maphack >.>)


How does it work?


Long story short. All the player's actions are sent to some server which we call «hub», and this hub streams all the required data to all other players



How do i get it?


ATTENTION! This is public alpha/beta/gamma testing. That means there can be bugs. So use it at your own risk.


To either start streaming your games, or watch games that are being streamed, you need to download these plugins (assuming you have ChaosLauncher), or the whole ChaosLauncher with all required plugins and anti-hack (all plugins are safe with iCCup).

We suggest you to set it to «update automatically», so you don't have to update them manually.


When the project status changes to stable all of these will be incorporated into the iCCup launcher. However there will always be versions for alternate launchers, not just for iCCup.





There are two modes (Watching streamed games, and streaming your games), two plugins. Each plugin is just for 1 mode exclusively. THEY ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH EACH OTHER! Meaning you can't run both of them at the same time, one of them must be off for the other to function.


Streaming your games (Streamer)

That's simple. Just turn on the iCCup TV Streamer plugin (make sure ICCup TV Player is OFF), and the iCCup plugin for antihack and you may start playing. Any server, any mode. In 3 minutes your game will be available for those watching. The 3 minutes delay is to make this tool look different from maphack, while actually being it.


Watching streamed games (Player)

1. Turn on the iCCup TV Player plugin (make sure ICCup TV Streamer is OFF).

2. Go to Single Player -> Expansion, and choose Load Replay.

You will get a list of all available matches. Those on the very top are live. So, choose your game and watch!

*While watching streamed games you may experience some automatic pauses. This is so called buffering. There is no need to manually unpause. The plugin will automatically do it for you after it has enough data buffered to contiune playing. In the case of being retarded and having pressed the unpause button — just go to stream list and watch this game again. You can «rewind» it to the moment you left off using the standard replay features.



TODO list


In the nearest future we plan on debugging these features and adding some web-page functionallity so it can be used as a remote replay storage. It can't be done using Starcraft since it has a limitation of 255 replays per folder..


What I've done is already an achievement for me. But i am not going to stop. So, here are some things we are going to add:


  • 1st person replays
  • audio track for replays. so it feels like a real casted game
  • making it viewable through browser, without having Starcraft open


If you are interested in helping us by coding/have some code snippets — send me a private message. If you have any suggestions, feedback, bug reports, whatever. just post them at this thread



Known issues


There is only one known issue at this very moment. Sometimes the Player plugin stops playing the game correctly much like a broken replay… This is a major issue, but is very rare and almost uncatchable with 0 games in LIVE list..

There are no problems with the streaming plugin which we are aware of.





Big thanks to the ICCup Dev Team for ideas and support, ICCup Administrators, BRAT_OK, dOty and a lot more for testing. We really appreciate all that you've done! Also special thanks to Blizzard for giving us StarCraft — best game ever. Also, thanks to the whole StarCraft community for just being there and the support. This is part of our contribution back to the community!


Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

why do i get a msg "you need bw expansion set" when i try to watch a game?

avatar #5 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 11:02 CET

I get the same message as #5

I clicked everything correctly but when I go to load replay, it lists all the games that are watchable but I can't because of that message.

the same as #7 I watched the ZvZ the I exited starcraft and activate the steamer plug-in (after I deactivate the player plug-in) and I played 3 games and then I restarted starcraft again but with player on and steamer off and I wasn't able to watch the ZvZ or my games :(

avatar #23 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 14:37 CET

Very cool... I'm interested in the 1st person replay views you talked about... I like to watch streaming because I get to see how the player is playing, how fast they are doing things, etc., and as this is right now I don't feel like this replaces Justin.TV or Livestream like most players use. If you get a first person view thing going, though, that'll be a different story.

Regardless, great work unk! 1.gif

avatar #24 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 16:54 CET

i think this is great as a matter of streaming games for events, because this way every1 can see everything and not only what the streamer shows. This is established in WC3 for ages already (and also DotA in that concern), pretty cool for that, ofc for those who like FP better, the todo's will give you what you are looking for:)

avatar #28 DE ips.ryuzaki 24 Dec 2009 @ 16:11 CET

There are a few things you'd need to change:

First, watching streams is only possible in singleplayer mode, which sux imho, i don't know if there are major differences between watching replays in single or in multiplayer, but if its possible, just make a new folder in replays folder calles "STREAMS" or so and put the available streams there.

Secound, as morrow said, it would be nice if the streamed games were really "live", which means the replay progess bar jumps to the point where the game is recorded (or 3 minutes later), at the moment it only looks like a online replay folder where you can pick and watch replays...

thx in advance, good work

avatar #29 UNK Да придёт армагеддон 24 Dec 2009 @ 16:15 CET

1. we don't like that also, but it will stay as is. at least till stable version.

2. all games are actually live. data being appended live. It do not goes to actual position in timeline cuz we think it is user to decide whether he want to rewind it or not.

avatar #30 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 16:55 CET

yea, leave it like this, because when you are late for a game you can still see what happened, or you can just skip it all by x16 and catch up, but this way it's better, imo :o

avatar #31 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 16:11 CET

Just tested it out... had it bug a game once (TvZ, the T's marines were suddenly mostly in his base when he tried to move out, and both players jumped over 2k minerals... reloaded it, that didn't happen), and had the game crash while doing x16 speed to get to where I was when the replay bugged. Tried a 3rd time and everything went fine.

Seems great, keep up the awesome work! =D

hm, when using the chaos launcher with all the plugins you posted above I am getting disconnected form iCCup.

Which of those plugins actually work on iCCup besides the iCCup antihack and stream/player and the chaos plugin and window mode ?

avatar #37 IT stampelle 24 Dec 2009 @ 17:18 CET

It is a gigantic solution too! for obs 2 players that can't make! :D

avatar #38 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 17:19 CET

i think it's finally working!!!

thanks a ton, IcCup.

i think i must have exitted to the startup screen and had to re-enter single player a few dozen times first, but i think it's finally working.

am i gonna have to do that every time i want to watch a .rep? =\

avatar #40 ES haitike 24 Dec 2009 @ 18:14 CET

Good feature.

Its would be better if you could see this streaming-repalys inside of the server, and not only in single player.

avatar #41 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 18:59 CET

we cant watch streamed games while being on the iccup server?

And if we want to stream rite now.. our antihack will be off? because i cant select the iccup plugin.

avatar #42 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 19:29 CET

Weird bug. When i watch a replay with my friend (any replay) the replay doesn't show up right... Both people will build some scv/drone/probe then go afk ...

I tried it with the normal iccup launcher and it went find, but when that is on then it doesn't work (i tried with TV streamer on only)

Sorry for the bug... Thanks you for the great stuff :D

PM me if you didn't understand (weak english i know :) )


avatar #43 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 20:23 CET

#57. Reload chaos put the plugin on all plugins selected besides w-mode and tv streamer. make sure tv player is on. and reload sc. if it doesnt work. keep reloading sc untill u can get in a live game.

Works very well btw. Thanks iccup for this its amazing ^^

avatar #44 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 20:42 CET

Sometimes i get the error where it says this replay is only available for the expansion set. Its sometimes though. And when it happens all we have to do atm is close sc and exit chaoslauncher. Reload everything and keep trying.

Hopefully this bug will be fixed in future patches for this.

avatar #45 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 21:04 CET

Thanks everyone for the responses.

I'll try to fix the "expansion set" bug tonight.

PS: the plugins create log-file in the folder in which they are located - icctv.log (streamer) and icctvp.log (player).

Please look at the logs when you have troubles with ICCup TV and post as much information as you can.

Thank you.

avatar #46 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 21:19 CET

doesnt work , failed. more time to fix thanks 1.gif im excited !

avatar #47 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 21:25 CET

I have been having the same problem as most people, with the whole "Replay is meant for different scenerio, blah blah"

I fixed it for me, and i think this may be the same problem for most people. First i do not use a CD anymore for my starcraft games so do that first.

Windows Users:

- Make sure you have "Hide extensions for known types" unchecked. To do this please use the following steps:

- Click Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Windows Explorer

- Click on Tools -> Folder options (Windows Vista users may have to press the Alt key to see the tools option at the top of the window)

- Click on the View Tab In the list, look for the "Hide extensions for known file types" option, and make sure that it is unchecked.

- Click OK to save the changes.

- Now you will need to copy some files from the Game CDs

- If you own only StarCraft, copy "INSTALL.EXE" from the StarCraft CD to your StarCraft folder and rename it to "StarCraft.mpq".

- If you own StarCraft: Brood War, copy "INSTALL.EXE" from the StarCraft: Brood War CD to your StarCraft folder and rename it to "BroodWar.mpq". If you wish to play the StarCraft original missions then please copy and rename the install file from the original StarCraft CD as well, as listed directly above.

Mac users:

- If you own only StarCraft, copy "StarCraft Archive" from the StarCraft CD to your StarCraft/StarCraft Files/ folder.

- If you own StarCraft: Brood War, copy "Brood War Archive" from the StarCraft: Brood War CD to your StarCraft/StarCraft Files/ folder. If you wish to play the StarCraft original missions then please copy the Starcraft Archive file from the original StarCraft CD as well, as listed directly above.

The problem that i had, was i did the CD patch for just the expansion, meaning i copied the install.exe from the broodwar cd only, and not from the original cd. I made the .mpq from the original cd and put it in my starcraft folder and there u go, no more scenerio problems.

avatar #48 SK toriak 24 Dec 2009 @ 21:36 CET

Make sure you have chacked ICCup TV Player and unchecked ICCup TV Streamer.

avatar #53 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 22:38 CET

Nice work!!

It would be great if the replay bar was hidden, that way we wouldnt't know how much time is left of the game.

BTW, what happens to this replay bar if the game streamed isn't over yet (while watching it) or do replays only upload once the game has ended?

avatar #54 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 23:00 CET

if the game isn't finished, you will never know until the end:)

avatar #55 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 23:19 CET

LOL a lot of people streming atm :D

avatar #57 IT stampelle 24 Dec 2009 @ 23:19 CET

I have turned off all chaos plugin apart "APMAlert" "Iccup tv player" and "repfix". Now it work perfectly, without any bugs.

Maybe also the plugin "ICCup"(AH) make some bugs with ICCup tv?

avatar #58 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 23:21 CET

this is no real time live streaming it has a delay...

it would be better idea to add autoupload for replays from users to iccup. and way easier to code.

whats the difference between watching a replay that was played 15 minutes ago, and a game that is being played live with a delay that of even 10 minutes ????

if you think im saying bs just speed up to 2X your replay while watching it and you can travel in future :D or not ?

makes no sence at all ...

Sorry for hating this, im actually loving it .... is a great idea and congratulations for your job dude ! Is just that you probably spent a lot of job in something that could be solved with so much less effort...

In other words ... you killed the fly with a bazooka ..

still good job

avatar #60 IT stampelle 24 Dec 2009 @ 23:43 CET

Well so why watch stream games on tl? Haren't stream with delay too? Is a difference between live (or semi-live) and replays. I can watch my 2 firewalled friends chatting with msn, just like I was in the game. Tourneys can be watched semi-live with a lot of intresting feautures of e chaos-replay (apm etc).

avatar #61 IT stampelle 24 Dec 2009 @ 23:45 CET

To avoid "map hack" issue, maybe will be possible to enable the vision of only the streamer player. :P

avatar #62 n-a 24 Dec 2009 @ 23:59 CET

There will be trusted casters in future. They will stream with a 30 seconds delay and their streams will be highlighted within a stream list. This will also solve an issue when some important game can be lost. Such important games will be streamed by trusted casters so it should be no problem to find such game in a list.

avatar #63 IT stampelle 24 Dec 2009 @ 23:45 CET

To avoid "map hack" issue, maybe will be possible to enable the vision of only the streamer player. :P

avatar #64 US ejaculator 24 Dec 2009 @ 23:57 CET

This is my solution to the map hack issue. Simply when you join a game, have it stated that the game is going to be streamed. If you don't like it (don't want to be streamed or are afraid of abuse) you can simply leave and join a different game. I don't think most people will care.

avatar #65 n-a 25 Dec 2009 @ 00:02 CET

Yes, this is in todo list. After game started every player will receive a message that game is being streamed.

avatar #75 n-a 25 Dec 2009 @ 11:10 CET

Your computer is being loaded as you're playing with one more observer player, so you should not have any high load issues.

Yes, you can stream 24/7, but as far as this is still a development phase we will reboot hub-server from time to time. Sorry for that.

You can use it while watching a stream, but if you want to stream you own game and have anti-hack enabled you should turn APM Live off.

There are no lags if you have an internet connection which allows you to play fine without lags.

Yes you can. Using ChaosLauncher with ICCup plugin instead of ICCup Launcher.

Just select "ICCup 1.16.1" instead of "StarCraft 1.16.1" in the drop down.

So this is like when you watch pro-matches on youtube, they sometimes show players live actions, this plug-in will do the same except all the way through whole match correct?

avatar #103 n-a 27 Dec 2009 @ 14:50 CET

Not yet, but 1st person mode its in our todo list. For now its like you're watching a replay except the game is live.

So you watch a game which is being played right now and has not been finished yet.

avatar #104 NZ Yongbit_Toss 28 Dec 2009 @ 03:16 CET

Ah! Oky Doky! got it! thanks! ^^*

avatar #105 CA Yellow_Banana 27 Dec 2009 @ 21:13 CET

I only see MY replays, not any of the streaming ones. And i enabled only Iccup TV Player, i also switched it to iccup mode with Anti Hack on. Why can't i see the streaming games? Someone care to help me ?

avatar #106 n-a 27 Dec 2009 @ 23:45 CET

The plugins has been updates. Famous player bug which has been mentioned in the news should be fixed.

avatar #107 CA Yellow_Banana 28 Dec 2009 @ 00:42 CET

Thanks alot Python Max, i can now watch. 1.gif

avatar #108 CN Orange_cc 28 Dec 2009 @ 03:50 CET

It's really cool!! Looking forward to the new version.

avatar #109 n-a 28 Dec 2009 @ 13:35 CET

OMFG! Very nice, thx a lot

avatar #110 n-a 28 Dec 2009 @ 14:45 CET

Works perfectly, flawless. Great job :)

avatar #111 n-a 29 Dec 2009 @ 10:34 CET

- i can't view more than 255 replays in the folder

- antivir finds a trojan in wmode.bwl. there were no issues with the old chaoslauncher - did you change sth?

avatar #112 n-a 29 Dec 2009 @ 11:27 CET

StarCraft does not support more than 255 replays. We're thinking of some hierarchy structure based on folders "live", "today", "yesterday", "this week" etc, but its not implemented yet.

No, we changed nothing, moreover we cant change wmode, its provided by it's author.

You can easily remove this file if you don't need window mode feature.

avatar #113 CN Just_so_Nemo 29 Dec 2009 @ 17:08 CET

this is unbelievable,i like ICCUP,no ICCUP,no STARCRAFT.

avatar #114 n-a 15 Apr 2011 @ 00:31 CET

I still have the "NETWORK CONNECTION FAILURE.re" message all the time... Can anyone help me?

The log file says "[14.04.2011 19:28:26] ICCup TV Player loaded [14.04.2011 19:28:35] Exception while receiving broadcasts: Failed to connect to the remote host"

avatar #115 US theSILENThoppe 19 Jul 2012 @ 03:03 CET

does this still work?

avatar #116 n-a 29 Dec 2009 @ 17:15 CET

seems i dont understand it. where is that live feature every single "stream" ends with "gg" of one player. these games are all already played

avatar #117 RU up7 27 Apr 2011 @ 19:39 CET

Есть варик, сыграть на стриме?

avatar #119 n-a 29 Dec 2009 @ 19:43 CET

Well, most of them are finished. The live ones are on top of the list.

avatar #120 CN Orange_cc 30 Dec 2009 @ 05:08 CET

I don't figure out what's the difference between watching a replay file and using this plugin. I think 1st person view probably help.

avatar #121 US gulati 01 Sep 2011 @ 04:26 CET

i know its been over a year since this has been commented on, but i still have the network connection failure pop-up, with the expansion set required issue. any fix to this? O,O

avatar #122 n-a 30 Dec 2009 @ 10:02 CET

Same as #64

Again, its live.

What the difference between watching a recorded football match and live broadcast?

avatar #123 CN Orange_cc 31 Dec 2009 @ 00:24 CET

It's awesome. But the 3 min delay and mixture of finished and on-going games in the list make things not so exciting.

Looking forward to point 1 and 3 in your Todo list.

Again, thanks for hard work. Thanks iCCUP.

avatar #124 n-a 30 Dec 2009 @ 12:26 CET

i love you

avatar #125 n-a 30 Dec 2009 @ 13:40 CET

awesome! 10.gif

avatar #126 DE Taly 30 Dec 2009 @ 20:27 CET

<3 you ICCup

avatar #127 n-a 31 Dec 2009 @ 08:58 CET

the ICCup plugin on my chaos launcher doesn't work. it has a red X next to it. I have automatic updates on... The tv player at least works fine though.

avatar #128 n-a 31 Dec 2009 @ 09:40 CET

See #124

avatar #129 n-a 31 Dec 2009 @ 11:36 CET

alright thanks, that helped. I hope we will be able to use other chaoslauncher plugins in the future too, such as APM alert.

avatar #130 n-a 05 Jan 2010 @ 17:12 CET

You can use anything you want with Player. But use anti-hack only with Streamer (and ChaosPlugin sure) when streaming from ICCup server.

avatar #131 n-a 31 Dec 2009 @ 12:49 CET

Excellent excellent job Python. I remember using Lasgos tool and also eagerly awaiting Ashur to finish his BWTV program. I'm so happy the dream has finally been realized. You are a real hero. Thank you so much!!!

This is a huge breakthrough for Starcraft.

avatar #132 n-a 31 Dec 2009 @ 19:07 CET


avatar #133 n-a 31 Dec 2009 @ 20:38 CET

cant wait to stream my games

avatar #134 n-a 01 Jan 2010 @ 18:24 CET

downloaded the chaos link and did everything correctly, but when I go to "Load Replays" it only reveals MY replays, not any ones being streamed. :(

I noticed two previous answers which did little to remedy the issue.

FPrep please~! 9.gif

avatar #136 n-a 03 Jan 2010 @ 02:52 CET

OMG! You guys rule! It works!

Maaan... you've made me believe in human kind again.
