    Hey guys,
    You've helped me before, and hopefully will have some insight for me again.

    I just got the StarCraft Battle Chest and didn't realize until I loaded the cd that it will only run on a Power PC Mac. Can anyone help me, or did I just waste a few bucks?

    Thanks,
    Doc

    Blizzard released an update that made it work on SL, but I don't think they've released one to make it work on Lion. I'm not sure they can either... Lion doesn't support Rosetta anymore, which is how SC could run on SL.

    Sorry, you've wasted a few bucks.

    Apple dropped Rosetta from Lion so you can't run Power PC apps.
