Since it seems that unit colours vary based on the computer that you're on, I'd like to conduct a quick survey. What I need is for some people to play a map for me (load up starcraft and actually "play" it) and either take a screenshot or simply tell me what colour the units are in game. At my home computer, all the units are black; but on another computer, they're a splotchy mess. I'd appreciate it if yous guys let me know what colour you're seeing.

Unit colours vary per computer? I have no idea what you are talking about, are you sure the other comp isn't just messed up itself? :|

Anyhow, I tested it and both Ghosts are black.

Haha, you sound skeptical, but it's true! Some computers just display different colours. I think it's a small percentage, but I'd like to know for sure before going further. Thanks for your input, by the way. I appreciate your help!

I was a bit skeptical yes ;). Is there any notable difference in comp. spec. between the computers who do and do not show different colours? A funky video card or driver would be a logical explanation.

Well, I've found the issue. In order to play SC at work, I installed the game on a flash drive and ran it off the drive with a no-cd crack. Apparently, that's what did it.

Okay, because I knew that tilesets can change the units, but I was almost certain that the computers wouldn't do it. Glad to see you figured it out yourself though.
