Variants of ASC
ASC 2.6 (on Git
master branch) is the traditional game engine, for which the campaigns have been designed. This is the best single-player experience available, and the version that is published on SourceForge.
ASC 2.8 (on Git
newattack branch) has a couple of changes to the game mechanics that were made for Project Battle Planets. These changes broke the campaigns and nobody bothered to fix them so far. For that reason, this version is recommended for participants of Project Battle Planets only.
