Did you try un-installing then re-installing your original Starcraft?



None.

This happened to my old disk a few years ago. It froze while installing the brood MPQ file. This was before I really used torrents, so I bought another CD for 5$. I would just try downloading the installer and using your CD-key.

You can make an account at www.battle.net, put in your CD key, and they will let you download SC.

Via torrent. Instead of using a key-gen, use your CD-key. A torrent would be perfectly legal in that situation.

Actually, you could just do what zany said. I didn't realize Blizzard provided it on their website.

Go to www.battle.net.
Make an account.
If/when it asks for a CD key, put it in. If it doesn't, find where you Add a Game and put it in there.
Go to Manage Game
Download Starcraft Anthology or w/e
Run the exe. It will download a file a bit over 1 gig.
Normal installation afterwards.

It's Brood War and SC combined.

NudeRaider -- I love how everyone obsesses over the topic of Prankenstein. It's a seemingly simple request with many solution, but he was asking about the most elegant one, so everyone is giving their best. Peak SEN imo :)

O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- firegraft is for making mods for starcraft, if you're trying to do stuff like that for a single map then EUD Editor is probably what you are looking for

fusiongtxo0 shouted: my computer says the download of firegraft has a virus
ya, for some reason AVs like to say it's some infected browser extension or something

fusiongtxo0 -- will firegraft allow me to make a tiger able to attack
[2022-1-20. : 5:11 pm]
NudeRaider -- that's normal for modding tools. All it means is that your virus scanner hasn't seen the file often.

fusiongtxo0 -- this is bullshit lol
