quite possibly the hardest game to play and master. great fun with lots of LAN memories. Enjoy youself, and pick up SC2 if your computer is good enough



cheers to leo for the link sig

Never before in the history of the world had such a mass of human beings moved and suffered Together. This was no disciplined march - it was a stampede - without order and without a goal, six million people unarmed and unprovisioned, driving headlong. It was the beginning of the rout of civilization, of the
massacre of mankind.

Yeah, some of the built-in scenarios are TOUGH!

Sonny(Protoss) and I(Terran) used to play via LAN versus computer(Zerg) a lot.

Fun to play all three factions, too. (My prefs: 1) Terran, 2) Protoss, 3) Zerg)

Ok. there is a fix for this. and its very silly but for some reason it works. Dont ask me why. On your desktop right click and open screen resolution. leave it open. Run the game as an admin and do the windows 98 compatibility run. then start the game. The menu may have some funny colors but in game should be fixed. leaving screen resolution open seems to fix it for some strange reason. this is the same fix for other older games that have this color problem. Dont ask me how it works, just be happy that it does. Happy starcrafting

2012, lol!  I still whip out Broodwar and run through the scenarios as a refresher before tackling 5-7 enemies in free-for-all mode. Or sometimes assign a computer as a Protoss ally while I do the Terran defense.  Same pixelization issues as above, but usually in-game plays fine after re-opening the game.  Now using Vista Ultimate (pirated is all that is avail in the Big Sandbox for Win upgrades).  :Chaingdog:
"May you never cheat, lie, steal, or drink....if you must cheat, cheat death..if you must lie, lie in a loved ones arms...if you must steal, steal kisses...and if you must drink, drink with us yo!"


NOTE:  I'm currently serving in various Middle East places and may go back to Afghan until further notice.  Wow, just realized how many years I've been hanging with BFM, since near the beginning!  :Chaindog:
