    Starcraft 1 & Windows 8 BEAUTIFUL


    Just thought I'd let people know that those of you who had issues running Starcraft 1 on Windows 7, it seems to run absolutely perfectly in Windows 8 without all the issues and workarounds.

    Just had to share.

    Thank you for your time and enjoy the internet.

    I tried SCI and the graphics are fine, no need to apply a reg key here but I have no sound which is a bit unfortunate.

    A friend of mine has the same issue with his sound drivers, so I'm offering to lend him a sound card I have lying around... Dunno if it will work in 8 but I introduced him to 8 so I might as well help him out

    I was originally just using the generic drivers that come by default but when I installed the actual Windows 7 x86 realtek drivers it didn't fix it either so I'm not sure. I might have a Sound Blaster Live! card I can use but all the other sound cards I have are really old I don't know if they even have native XP drivers.

    I found a solution If you download the iccup launcher iCCup — Files / Anti-Hack_Launcherr

    And run starcraft using the launcher the sound will work , no need for a separate sound card or vm for broodwar then.

    you need to configure your video card to scale broodwar to full screen instead of displaying it in actual size of 640x480.

    I have no idea what video card you have so I can't tell you what the setting is but just look for the intel/amd/nvidia graphics applet in the control panel and find something to do with scaling to full screen but keeping the aspect ratio

    Thanks for your quick reply.
    I am using the acer w510 tablet PC running a built in graphic card on intel z2760 processor. And the intel graphic software doesn't have any options for scaling. And I have tried to run it with windows XP compatibility mode and still no hope... ((
