I don't really know if this is the correct thread but...
Whenever I'm in multiplayer mode for Local Area Network support, whenever I try to change the game mode, StarCraft crashes...



None.

It shouldn't crash, obviously. Is this on the latest patch? If not, upgrade to the latest patch and try again.

If you continue to have problems, backup your maps folder and reinstall SC. This should hopefully fix the issue.

My version is at 16.1. That's the latest version, isn't it?



None.

Yes it is; if you try to connect to Battle.net on an older patch, it will try to update you automatically, anyway.

Sounds like you should try reinstalling.

I haven't really reinstalled before so how do I go about doing that?
By the way, is it possible that the modding that I did many times on the computer cause that to happen?



None.

Go to the Starcraft folder in your start menu and click on "Uninstall Starcraft" (or go to My Computer and click Uninstall Programs [for Windows 7]), and then just reinstall it through the disc. If you don't have your disc/cd key but registered your key online, just go to battle.net and download the game through that. You probably have some corrupted file that will get fixed once you reinstall.

Wait, I fixed it. I just changed the name for the StarCraft executable to "starcraft" and not anything else.



None.

That *should* not fix anything unless you're using 3rd party programs. Can you definitely connect the renaming to a stable experience and can you reproduce that always when you name it to whatever it was before it crashes?

The game mode I had on initially was KBK Singles, probably that third party program only recognised "starcraft" as the name. So when I clicked on it, it would be unable to load and crashes. That's what I think.



None.

If you don't have your disc/cd key ...
... Use this: http://www.staredit.net/files/2414/

Also you can just delete starcraft.exe to cause the installer to think you don't have it installed.

NudeRaider shouted: NudeRaider Background: In music this has caused a loudness war, over the past decades where artists amplified their works more and more to sound more prominent than others. In this context it's actually perceived negative, because while for the untrained listener this creates a more effectful (because louder) piece, it actually destroys the finer details artists used to play very quietly. But because the latter is only appreciated by music enthusiasts with good stereo equipment, the former targets a larger audience and thus has proven more commercially successful.
yeah this happens in all media now, sc2's sfx compared to sc1's is a good example of loudness war. also commercials/youtube ads being way louder than the content you're watching

Uniformly lifting the wave form can only do so much (you noticed that you hit a ceiliing pretty early) but if you use a method that amplifies quiet component more than loud components the resulting perceived loudness will go up much quicker without hitting distortion.
