Starcraft is extremely slow now...

Post by onixiya » Sun Nov 24, 2019 3:40 am

So i recently got myself a mac (yay) and wanted to get some old windows games to play with. So, got my starcraft discs out, installed both the original and brood war, patched it up to 1.16 and now its extremely slow for some reason. The sound also cackles a lot and the screen glitches out every 10 seconds or so. I know starcraft used to work with v3 of wine on linux (haven't used wine in a long time). Apparently when it's not in full screen it's fine but i for some reason, i can't get virtual desktop to work. These are the only 2 error messsages i get so here you go

Code: Select all

0009:fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x32f310,0x00000000), stub!
002a:fixme:d3d_shader:glsl_blitter_upload_palette P8 texture loaded without a palette.
Should someone change the platnium compatibility to something like silver or maybe garbage now? 'Cus this speed isn't exactly playable

Wine-4.x has some regressions within some games, try using Wine-3.x version that as known to work for your game
