    Blizzard announced yesterday that they've added a patch to Starcraft. Unfortunately no Universal Binary but they've fixed a few bugs and added so new features. Nothing big. I love the fact that Blizzard, even after 10 years, still patches games. They are awesome.

    I love blizzard too, I just wish they wouldn't focus on WoW so much lately. I know, it's their bread-n-butter but what about those of us that don't care to pay a monthly fee?

    Let's pump out some Universal Binaries for WarCraft 3 and StarCraft.

    Speaking of StarCraft, whatever happened to Ghost? I got so tired of seeing the same old news that I stopped checking up on it, and now it's not even there anymore. Was this project just completely scrapped? :confused:

    StarCraft Receives Another Update

    Showing a dogged commitment to what is undoubtedly one of their most successful products, Blizzard has once again released an update to its venerable RTS StarCraft. Now sitting at version 1.14, the version largely addresses various bugs and exploit fixes in a continuing effort to keep things running smoothly.

    Some of the features changes are as follows:
    • European ladder now affiliated with WGTour (http://www.wgtour.com/blizz.php). See (http://www.battle.net/scladder/) for additional information about the new European ladder.
    • Ladder games disabled for all other regions.
    • For Top vs. Bottom games, the default chat filter is now 'Chat To Allies'.
    • In-game chat messages now show the speaker's name in his/her team color.
    • Users can now use the mouse wheel to scroll chat and selection boxes in Windows 98 (or later) and Macintosh OS X.
    • Screen shots now use a time/date stamp; they are no longer limited to 100.
    • Improved version numbering system.
    • The high-color application icon from the Macintosh version is now used on PC.
    • Small corrections to the Lost Temple and Dire Straits maps.

    Direct downloads to the latest patches can be found at Blizzard's site.

    Such a shame Atari can't do the same with their Master of Orion games. Master of Orion 2 should have been carbonised, and MoO3 is so buggy it's unplayable. :(

    EDIT: However, for those that are interested. I've got round the MoO2 planet-invasion crash problem in OSX :)

    That's absolutely insane. It's hard to believe that it would just be completely abandoned. Were there any press releases or was it just quietly scrapped?

    Why did they scrap it? They were working on that game for years. I agree about Starcraft 2. That's all I want. I'm not interested in Warcraft 3 or WoW. I hope they don't make Starcraft 2 like Warcraft 3. That would ruin it for me.

    It's been almost 9 years since Starcraft was released. Since then, they've released Diablo II, Diablo II Expansion, Warcraft III, Warcraft III: Frozen Throne, World of Warcraft, and are soon to release World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. I think it's time to revisit the Starcraft realm.

    Total releases for each "realm" (including expansions)
    Warcraft - 7
    Diablo - 3
    Starcraft - 2
