You don't, unfortunately. The Battle.net desktop application does not have any support for what Blizzard refer to as "legacy games". This means that Diablo 2 and the Lord of Destruction expansion (amongst many others) are not available for installation or management through the Battle.net desktop application and can only be installed by logging ...

It's a map ban process. This occurs in many games. I'm not aware on the specifics of Starcraft; but if it works like other competitive games, it is part of the map choosing process. In the map choosing process, there is generally a ban phase, followed by a picking phase. First, both sides will choose maps that they do not want to play. Then, after that, ...

The term is actually "Ee Han Timing". It is Korean in origin. From liquipedia: Ee han timing stands for a timing in the game where you have to do damage. For example 2 hatch mutalisks. By doing this build you are (usually) behind economic wise. Therefore you have to do damage or else you will be significantly behind. It is an ee han timing moment. ...

According to IMBD, Tiffany Hayes is the voice actress for the Adjustant in SC1. Furthermore, Tiffany Hayes has voiced acted for other games, all by Blizzard. Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne Diablo II as Charsi

Yes. Most famously, a player played against SlayerS BoxeR in a showmatch in Brood War at the Blizzard World Wide Invitational tourney in January of 2004. Boxer was blindfolded for the first three minutes, after which he played normally. The player's name was Min Seok and he played Zerg. I'm not sure if there are other players. He utilized the game sounds ...

While I couldn't find any official mentions of it, I found multiple images, eBay listings, and forum threads suggesting the existence of a non-US collector's edition. This forum post has photos of the contents of the aforementioned collector's edition.

At a guess, Archons are immune to both abilities as being purely mental beings. They are not mechanical (unlike Reavers and Probes), but they are not biological anymore either. Here's what Blizzard has to say (Starcraft II but should be the same as the original in this aspect): Although their abilities are already impressive, High Templar and Dark ...

Starcraft 1 (Or legacy Starcraft) does not have a Battle.net registration included to play on local. As Frank said, we are not lawyer, so we won't answer legal questions. However, you can play with the same CD-KEY on two different computers in multiplayer via LAN (TCP-IP). For the installation issue, you just have to download it once, install on both ...

This isn't answering your question directly, but on the CD case for the original Starcraft (should be the first disc) there should be a 13 digit cd key. If you try downloading the Starcraft installer from Blizzard, you wont require the discs to play the game. You will be able to launch them straight from your desktop. However, that game requires a 26 digit ...

The Downside of Turtling is that while you're building up such pretty defenses the Enemy is being left alone by you so that they can buildup everything they want and go kill the other players. So that means they're asking for top-tech-tier stuff to be shoved down their throat. Terran Strategy: Build 5 Battlecruisers and 3 Science Vessels. Do the reactor ...

I would use corsairs. Use their disruption web either on his bunkers/siege tanks or on his turrets. If you get enough turrets down you could get fliers in the main part of his base which he will not be expecting.

The AI gets stuck because it can't find a spot to place his spawning pool. IIRC, too many minerals or doodads near the hatchery can cause Zerg AI's building placement algorithm to fail. Unfortunately, I don't remember how I know this.

You can't during the default campaign but there are modded campaigns out there that are built as brood war maps (common one to look for would be the coop mod) in those ones using the all technology cheat should enable brood war units. Alternately you could extract the maps yourself and just load them up as a brood war map (using map settings). Here are two ...

There is an old reddit post The place for Brood War AI was http://broodwarai.com/ but that site is currently down. The Brood War AI scripts can still be found at: http://www.entropyzero.org/BroodwarAI.html http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/brood-war/46293-bw-ai-project-gosu-update The other possibility is using a BWAPI bot. These bots are a lot ...

That limit is in place due to the limitations of the game engine (and the requirement to run acceptably on weaker computers). Therefore it is impossible to remove this limit at all. For further information look here.

Blizzard has released Starcraft 1 for free. If you download that version (you'll probably need to login into your blizzard account in order to do so), you'll be allowed to login into battle net without any problems.

It seems that there's a tool called Oblivion that raises the limit to 255 units; should be enough given the supply limits. It also introduces other sensible changes (like automatic mining), but I'm not sure if those can be enabled/disabled individually.

All special abilities (like Psionic Storm) hit under the cloud, as well as ranged splash damage (such as indirect siege tank fire) and of course melee attackers. Blizzard's Starcraft Compendium is a great resource for questions like these.

Strictly judging by the outlined part, the higher grounds have to be on left side, because if it wasn't, you wouldn't be able to see those rocks.

I have a project that attempts to improve the default AI by better emulating the current human metagame: https://github.com/jncraton/BWMetaAI This project seeks to create an AI that provides a unique experience in each game while closely mirroring builds and unit compositions used by humans today. This provides a much stronger learning experience for new ...

I am assuming you're on Windows for this. You're looking at a 3-step process, based on what I can find on the official forums: Uninstall the game. Delete the registry key specified below (using regedit) Reinstall the game. If you've deleted the registry key, you should be prompted for the language by the installer. The registry key you should delete is ...

There seems to be an exception for the Spawn Broodling ability against this type of unit: Spawn Broodling affects all ground units with the exception of: Probes Reavers Archons Dark Archons The page later goes on and states: Broodlings are rarely seen in Zerg vs. Protoss since the most expensive Protoss ground units are immune to the spell (i.e. Reavers, ...

Unfortunately, it is not possible to assign more than 10 control groups in Starcraft.

For at least the early and mid game you should set a location hotkey to each base. Quickly jump back to base regularly with the hotkey to select all your workers and right click on resources. The workers should rally to a place next to the base, but sadly for zergs you have no choice but to rally at the same place with all your attacking units. In the very ...

If you have problems after installing NVIDIA driver update, go into the 3D options and turn if the setting called DPS in under the global tab. I found this solution on the battle.net forum.

Well, after many failed attempts and hours of gaming, I found a team who found a solution. The solution is indeed OUTSIDE this room. The hints given in those 3 by 3 squares of grass and water are for another room. There are two switches located later in the game which deactivate those flag barriers. However, the problem we had getting to those said rooms ...
