well, downloaded it, launched but it still runs in fullscreen, does it require any special settings?

Out of DxWnd, VirtualBox and Windows XP mode (from the microsoft site) which is the best? Ive read all 20 pages so far and it seems that these three things seem to have offered people the most success.
Virtual Box in paticular seems to come up fairly often but i was wondering if there was anyone who has tried all three and can provide a comparison or are they all one and the same and its a matter of personal preference?

Also with DxWnd, if you log into battlenet, does blizzard recognize it as a hack (third party programs and what not)?

If you haven't tried it yet, try UNCHECKING the "Enable Color Cycling" box by opening the Menu in-game, going to "Options", and then "Video." When I did this, my Starcraft stopped running choppily and went back to normal.

Hey, guys. I'm not sure if it'll work, for you, but... it worked, for Me. I installed IE 9, and rebooted, and... it's fixed. I hope that this works for you! Tell Me, if it does, please. Thanks, bye.

Hmmmm. NO! I like starcraft 2- But starcraft is still good. Its just like L4d and L4d2- I personally think L4d2 sucks compared to L4d.. But I love starcraft and starcraft 2.
