View Full Version : Starcraft on Vista

Is there a program I need to download to play starcraft on Vista? I get to mission nine of the terran campaign and the game fritzes out when I win, so I'm wondering if it's the OS or a bad install.

Possibly a bad install, but have you tried playing around with the compatibility settings? Changing the compatibility to WinXP usually fixes most problems I have with running older games on Vista.

It could also be that maybe the OP torrented the game and the download was corrupted? A common problem when you pirate games. Most of the time they work great, but sometimes there's things missing.
I once downloaded a copy of Starcraft that had no background music or voices. Maybe they were removed intentionally to make for a smaller file size, but meh.

Not pirated. Must just be a bad install. I'll go ahead and fix that sometime during the week. I usually only play it when I'm doing my laundry, so it's not a huge deal or anything.
