BREAKING NEWS: OCTOBER 7, 2015 - Patch 3.0 - The END of Sc2gears.

StarCraft II's Patch 3.0 rendered Sc2gears' parsing engine incapable of doing its work. In short: Sc2gears can no longer parse replays since Patch 3.0.

No further updates will be released for Sc2gears, only Scelight will be maintained. Visit the Scelight home page and start using it.

✞ R.I.P. Sc2gears! Lived 5 years, 6 months and 5 days! (April 2, 2010 - October 7, 2015)

May God bless You All.

Just download the zip file and extract it to anywhere you like. You're done.

It is advised not to put Sc2gears in special folders like "C:\Program Files" or "C:\Windows" where normal users do not have write access therefore Sc2gears would not be able to save settings and replay sources and lists.

On MAC OS-X you can start Sc2gears by double clicking on the file "Sc2gears-os-x-command".

Note that on Linux and MAC OS-X you (might) have to set executable permission on the starter script. Open a console/terminal, navigate to the Sc2gears folder where you extracted it, and execute the following command:

Linux: "chmod +x"
OS-X: "chmod +x Sc2gears-os-x.command"

It only has to be done once. After that you can start Sc2gears with the following command:

Windows: double click on the "Sc2gears.exe"
OS-X: "./Sc2gears-os-x.command"

Update from an older release

Sc2gears contains an automated self-updater. It should notify you on startup if a new version is available (if you didn't disable it). Just press the "Update" button when it pops up. You can force an update check in the Help menu. The self-updater will delete/overwrite files that are part of Sc2gears, and it will keep your lists, settings, logs (they are saved in the "User Content" folder) and other custom files in the Sc2gears folder.

If the self-updater doesn't work for you, just download manually the latest release, extract it to anywhere, and optionally copy the "User Content" folder from the old version to keep all your settings and logs.
