This may be a stupid question but what engine is Starcraft built on?



None.

If you're thinking of something like Unreal Engine or something, it's not made with any engine like that. It is loosely based on WarCraft 2, but that is all in-house.

Math + Physics + StarCraft = Zoan

What programming language is SC built on? My friend thought it was built on something that started with a t, I think. I can't remember exactly what he thought it might've been though lol.

Note I know nothing about programming and might sound like a total idiot asking this if this question doesn't make any sense.

Cartography Artisan

I think it was built with C++, using direct X for windows graphics, they used a number of existing data types such as MoPaQ and smk. Was ported to Mac using carbon and reprogrammed graphics and networking code - Heinermann would know better/more specifics.

MPQ is also in-house. It just carried over from WarCraft. SMK (videos), WAV (sounds), and PCX (used for backgrounds and color tables) are probably the only non-in-house formats used (there are a few others, but their usage is very limited).

I will spit on your graves, Blizzard fuckheads.
can't blame individuals for getting out of the business when it no longer served them, be grateful for the good they gave, not bitter for what was eventually lost
