"The version of StarCraft II required to play this game is unavailable."

I can't play a mission that I paid for with Wings of Liberty? I'm just trying to play the Echoes of the Future mission. Which I could have played not more than a week ago. With the game I bought. I'm confused.

Also, on a Mac.

I believe he's talking about this stupid little message that pops up when you start the game in OFFLINE mode with no internet connection. I too need the offline mode as I don't always have a connection. Here's a screenshot of the message: http://i.imgur.com/7puPX.jpg

I am getting the same thing. for three different missions. They are the Thor, ?, Siege tank missions. Here is a screen shot of the error message. It occurs after the cinema scenes before the mission is loaded. http://i.imgur.com/nQaA1.png

Thanks.

Can you try this and see if it helps?

Repairing StarCraft II
    1. Navigate to /Applications/StarCraft II/Battle.net
    2. Delete the Battle.net.MPQ file
    3. Launch StarCraft II

This will force the game to see it is missing data and self repair.

Thank You! That fixed the problem. I launched, pressed play, and then downloaded the missing files.

You're in the wrong folder. That screenshot shows your documents folder.

You have to have an internet connection to repair. What happens when I want to play offline because I am travelling, don't have a connection, and it won't let me play? This is unacceptable. For such a "high quality" game and "reputable" company, these kinds of things really shouldn't be happening. If I pay $50 for a game, I would expect to be able to play that game anytime and anywhere I want to. I think I will just stick with Steam for all my games. They have never let me down since they first came up.

This is a known issue. It will be addressed in a future update.

If you're busy trying to fix it the hard way, I feel like this could easily be hot-fixed with a simple script that when the little error dialog pops up, a second button is there next to "OK" called "REPAIR" or something, that just restarts the game and deletes the MPQ.

EDIT:
Also, to the gentlemen with the entitled attitudes, I would recommend you exercise more care and empathy in your dealings with people.

i have the same exact problem. I implement the fix and it only works for a set amount of time. i.e.. i fixed it last night was able to play offline for a while with no problems (played several levels) then today i have to delete the file again and repair again. Please issue a sustainable resolution.
