Gratz on such a successful mod btw. I'm hoping Blizz gives you a call any day now to make you the official 'Make colours betterer' there.
Thank you kind sir.
Unfortunately It just doesn't work on macs due to this mpq editor thing. It used to work with macs before blizz changed it, but now it involves editing an existing mpq. There is a way to get around it, and that's to take an mpq from the pc version and replace your mac mpq with that one. I believe that SHOULD work.
I've tried uploading my mpq multiple times for mac users to just download and replace their mpqs with mine, but no matter what I always get upload errors. Sendspace especially. But if you have a pc or a friend that has a pc, you can try installing the mod on the pc version of sc2(USE MANUAL INSTALL JUST IN CASE). THEN if it's successfully installed(test to make sure it works), then take the mpq file enUS.SC2Assets that's inside your StarcraftII/Mods/Liberty.SC2Mod and put it in a usb or something. Then take that to your mac and replace that mpq with the modified one.
I've never tried this, and I don't think I've heard of anyone who's tried it, but I would think it would work lol. Just a thought. I've really tried uploading it to sendspace many times and I just keep getting errors, and the file is too big for mediafire, so I just gave up :/
If someone else could try uploading their mpq, that might also help.
Also keep in mind that when a new patch for SC2 is released, a reinstall MIGHT be required in order to patch the game. This is always a risk when modifying the mpqs. I've been forced to reinstall for some patches despite having backups. Not a big deal really.
I've actually just showed this to a friend who is colourblind; he says that the greater contrast is actually really helpful for him, though he still is sticking with colours he can actually see, hehe. Thank you so much for the mod!
Thanks for the mod. It's really nice. I only installed the baneling textures, as I just love that 'glowing' look!!!! But I (must) play with team colours on, and unfortunately the banes are super bright. Would anyone be able to upload a somewhat toned down glowing baneling .dds file?

That's like saying using a razer mouse is cheating over someone with a standard mouse because he doesn't have the advantage of a really good mouse.
A Razer mouse gives no advantage compared to another mouse, its more personal favour(Also it doesnt change the game). My point is your not playing the same game with the same rules as your oppenent.
A good mouse will give an advantage because you can have a higher sensitivity without skipping pixels, letting you be both accurate and faster.
And its still marginal and still misses the point I made. Also a faster mouse is not healthy for your wrist and a slower mouse is more accurate because you have to move it more obviously. Even when you skip a pixel you get used to it when you practice and you wont miss a drone because you missed a pixel(because its only a pixel u nu?). But you will miss banelings when they arent neon banelings.
