    hey guys, i was running sc-bw, but the macbook was using close to full cpu usage, is this normal ? i mean sc is a very old game, it shouldnt use that much resources.

    n also i have 2gb ram.

    Starcraft sends idle commands constantly. So on a dual CPU machine it generally uses 50%. On a single CPU machine it uses 100%.

    This is true even on Windows.
