I wanted to know if I can put StarCraft on a USB and bring my USB stick to other computers and play StarCraft without installing it, both online and single player.

Yes, also you can use the 66kb mpq to get the game to run without using a hack.

Okay, how do I do it? What files do I need on my USB disk?

I hope you're not talking about this (NSFW): http://www.gearfuse.com/the-teeny-weeny-usb-drive/

Just install Starcraft, patch it, copy that MPQ file to it, then copy everything to the USB drive. It should all work fine and fit in a 512 usb drive.

So should I just copy and paste all the files in my StarCraft folder onto my USB disk?

Yes, it will work fine.

EDIT: Though I can't remember if it works on bnet, you might want a copy of your registry entry for battle.net just in case.

I just copied and pasted all the files, including the 2/3 hidden files onto the disk. How do I know it works? Should I just try to start StarCraft through the USB disk and log onto b.net?

You won't know if bnet works by testing it on your computer, but you can test it right now to make sure it works.

How do I get the registry file? Where is it located?

I can play it single player and get online with it when starting it through the USB disk files.

I bought one of these earlier today, only in a 4 GB model. It has U3 and lights up! :D

Start -> Run -> regedit.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Battle.net\

Right click on that folder and export it. It will make a .reg file which you need to double click on any computer you plan on running USB Starcraft on.

Okay, thanks. Will I have to install it? I just want a "plug and play" type job.

EDIT: Just look at all this cool U3 downloadable shit http://sandisk.bigfishgames.com/

Sleeping wolves wake hungry.

You don't need to install it, I do it all the time with the .mpq chuiu mentioned.

Good, because I plan on using this at School, granted the computers will not block battle.net... Stupid Norton Symantec protection. I wonder if there is a way around this gayness?

Crt+alt+delete. Run task manager, go to processes, turn off the anti-virus. Or, connect to the school's server with your own laptop.

Ctrl + alt + delete = Pop up box, asking you to log off/shut down/change password/etc... It's not really an anti-virus, its more like a big brother that blocks websites. Sadly, me going on SEN too much gained it a spot on the blocked list.

The wifi is protected. I'm sure the password is something easy.

Schools usually have a "guest" "district/highschool" username-password set. You could always create a .bat file that destroys the programs on the computer. And, as for SEN, make your own website with a proxy -- there's some open source files for it so you can view any website. If they block it, just change the name of the site.

I tried to open command prompt via a .bat file I created in Notepad and when it starts, it automatically ends the program. I don't have any idea how to make a website. Looks like I'm SOL.

Make a program that edits the reg data, battle.net shouldn't be blocked in itself. Regediting at school should be blocked since its an "administrative" priveledge. A program might be able to bypass this.

I have no idea how to program. It's almost the end of the year anyways. It would be easier for me to obtain a teachers username and password and then try to log on, because they can view some, if not all, blocked websites.

It's not a matter of if it can connect, its a matter of if you can access the command line prompt and regedit.
