StarCraft and StarCraft: Brood War Windows Patch
Blizzard has released a minor patch for StarCraft and StarCraft: BroodWar Windows users, updating it to v1.15.2. This patch no longer requires the CD while playing the game, but to be able to play without the CD, you need to adhere to the following:
- Make sure you have “Hide extensions for known types” unchecked under Explorer Folder Options.
- If you own only StarCraft, copy “INSTALL.EXE” from the StarCraft CD to your StarCraft folder and rename it to “StarCraft.mpq”.
- If you own StarCraft: Brood War, copy “INSTALL.EXE” from the StarCraft: Brood War CD to your StarCraft folder and rename it to “BroodWar.mpq”.
