Starcraft on Linux?

i was just wondering if anyone here has tackled that problem yet. Right now i have starcraft and brood war installed on linux mint 15 and it works fairly well for me but with a few issues. for one, the screen does this wierd thing where the last column of pixels on the right side is repeated until the end of the screen. isn't anything that ruins it for me but i just can't figure out why this happens. the resolution of the game was fine running it in ubuntu 12.04. not only that but the maximum vertical resolution for my screen is 600 which is the same as starcraft (800x600 right?)

other than that my only attempts at online play have only been when i was running ubuntu and they failed miserably. as it stands right now i think linux mint will be able to play online if i can only figure out how to set that up, and i would really like to fix that resolution issue.



None.

sc's resolution is 640x480. so the vertical resolution is 480 pixels.

Wormer shouted: or the guide (http://www.starcraftai.com/wiki/CHK_Format#.22UNIT.22_-_Placed_Units) is wrong there and it should be u8[27] ?
you may as well say it's 8bytes + padding
