Guides on emulating older games

The story focuses on the activities of the three species in a part of the Milky Way known as the Koprulu Sector. Millennia before any of the events of the games, a species known as the Xel'Naga genetically engineered the Protoss and later the Zerg in attempts to create pure beings. These experiments backfire and the Xel'Naga are largely destroyed by the Zerg.[6] Centuries before the beginning of StarCraft in 2499, the hardline international government of Earth, the United Earth Directorate (UED), commissions a colonization program as part of a solution to overpopulation. However, the computers automating the colony ships malfunction, propelling the Terran colonists far off course to the edge of Protoss space. Out of contact with Earth, they form various factions to maintain their interests. Intrigued by the behavior and mentality of the Terrans, the Protoss remain hidden to examine the humans, while protecting them from other threats without their knowledge. However, the Zerg target the Terrans for assimilation to harness their psionic potential, forcing the Protoss to destroy tainted Terran colonies to contain the Zerg infestation.

StarCraft begins just days after the first of these attacks, where the predominant Terran government, the Confederacy of Man, falls into a state of panic as it comes under attack by both the Zerg and the Protoss, in addition to increasing rebel activity led by Arcturus Mengsk against its rule. The Confederacy eventually succumbs to Mengsk's rebels when they use Confederate technology to lure the Zerg into attacking the Confederate capital, Tarsonis. In the consequent power vacuum, Mengsk crowns himself emperor of a new Terran Dominion. However, during the assault on Tarsonis, Mengsk allows the Zerg to capture and infest his psychic second-in-command, Sarah Kerrigan. This betrayal prompts Mengsk's other commander, Jim Raynor, to desert him with a small army. Having retreated with Kerrigan to their primary hive clusters, the Zerg are assaulted by Protoss forces commanded by Tassadar and the dark templar Zeratul. Through assassinating a Zerg cerebrate, Zeratul inadvertently allows the Overmind to learn the location of the Protoss homeworld, Aiur. The Overmind quickly launches an invasion to assimilate the Protoss and gain genetic perfection. Pursued by his own people as a heretic for siding with the dark templar, Tassadar returns with Zeratul to Aiur and with the assistance of Raynor and the templar Fenix, Tassadar launches an attack on the Overmind and ultimately sacrifices himself to kill the creature.

If anyone has a pre-2007 revision of the Battle Chest, please upload it.

At least, we have Classic versions (not BC) here.

Assuming the photos of the discs are the same as the ones that were uploaded, this is likely a 2007+ revision of the Battle Chest due to it mentioning Windows Vista on the front of the CD; and therefore this copy being OS X-only makes sense as Classic support was virtually non-existent by then.

If you look at the MobyGames cover page, there are different versions of the Battle Chest starting in 1999. (notice the slightly different ESRB rating designs compared to this page's) Early versions of the Battle Chest should probably support Classic.

If anyone has a pre-2007 revision of the Battle Chest, please upload it.

Doesn't this work with all the way back to SSW 7 PPC?

Edit: I checked for that in the manual and considered correcting that accordingly in this page. It's Mac OS 7.6 and higher PPC. But is there a difference in this release that would make it OS X only? And especially requires something as high as 10.3.9? Seems unlikely.

To fix the multiple disk problem:

1. Create a new folder put all the files from disk 1 and 2 inside (Installer Tome.mpq, Installer Tome 2.mpq, StarCraft (OS X).app, /Images/, etc...)
2. Use Disk Utility (or Toast) to create a new image .dmg from the folder you created in step 1.
3. Then mount the new image and install with no more installation disk change problems.

Instead of this one, try installing from this page. Download & use the installers for Mac OS X, beginning with StarCraft, then if you want, with Brood War.

Does not work. Blizzard installers need the discs sequentially in the same drive.

Now what I can do is to backup the whole installed (and patched) StarCraft folder onto an external HDD. (?)

Mount both images simultaneously?

Is there any way to swap .toast images during installation?
I would be very good not to use real discs for setup and save DVD drive.

Now, this game is free & can be downloaded directly on Blizzard's website :

However, I have not tested the compatibility yet...

[EDIT] It seems that it requires Yosemite at least. More infos on this page :

Fortunatly, we have this page for olds machines. Smile

Starcraft and Brood war in os x will play without CD inserted in the computer. The both CD has archives. Just copy the archives from both CD. You had to put Brood war & Starcraft archive in Starcraft Files folder. The game will play without CD in os x only but mac os 9 the game will ask for CD.
Brood War Archive is 545.4 MB of hard drive.
Starcraft archive is 578.8 MB of hard drive.
I found this on Blizzard website.
