- Fixed a bug that would kick the Mac out of Battle.net chat at random (usually short) intervals.
Starcraft for Mac OS X requires Mac OS X, version 10.1 or later.
- Starcraft for Mac OS X should be installed on a hard drive that is formatted as Mac OS Extended. To find out how your hard drive is formatted, select your hard drive in the Finder and choose "Show Info" from the File menu.
- For the best color quality, it is recommended that you run Mac OS X's Display Calibrator Assistant. You can find it by choosing Displays in System Prefs. Select the Color tab and click the Calibrate button. Then follow the on-screen instructions to calibrate your display.
- Networking over IPX, Appletalk, Serial and Direct Modem-Modem is not available in Starcraft for Mac OS X.
- UDP Networking added. You can now play on your local TCP/IP based local network by choosing "Local Area Network (UDP/IP)" in the Multiplayer options screen. An upcoming release of the Classic Mac and Windows versions will also support this feature, allowing LAN play between these three versions.
- If the computer goes to sleep while you're in the battle.net chat screen, you may get disconnected from Battle.net. If this happens simply disconnect and then reconnect to Battle.net.
- If music is turned off in the game, you may notice occasional pauses while the CD-ROM drive spins up. You may want to leave music turned on to avoid this.
- Please do not lock any of the files in the Starcraft folder. This will prevent you from being able to connect to Battle.net.
- If you have any problems installing Starcraft in Mac OS X's Classic environment, download StarCraft_Installer_1.05-b.sit from ftp://ftp.blizzard.com/pub/StarCraft/patches/StarCraft_Installer_1.05-B.sit. Run this program with the StarCraft CD in your CD-ROM drive. Should that fail, restart into Mac OS 9 and install from there.
