So this January I got Windows 8 by my friend and I am loving it.
When i try to open up a map, It always go to a black screen when I try to load up a map. I tried everything about the compatibility of it and I get nothing. Any ideas?

When I had 8, I didn't have this problem. In fact, it even fixed the discoloration problem 7 had. I haven't played since, but I'd try upgrading to windows 8.1.

I'll have to download BroodWar again and see for myself. Are you running the packaged version from Battle.net or are you running the client from the CDs?

I'm running the ICCUP version of it. But I don't play online since Bnet UI is blarg.

Unfortunately, I've never used the launcher at all, and don't know how it works so I can't really help you there.

Oh okay. Well it does work in Windowed mode, but it kinda annoys me to play in Windowed mode.

tl;dr your priorities are not better than mine
