Description:
StarCraft is a popular military science fiction real-time strategy video game.

This is statically recompiled Windows executable, that was recompiled to ARM and bundled with ARM version of wine.

Data files from original full game are required, here's how to prepare them:
1. Install the game on PC.
2. Install the expansion.
3. Apply the official 1.16.1.1 patch.
4. As instructed by the patch notes, copy some files from CDs:
- For StarCraft, copy "INSTALL.EXE" from the StarCraft CD to your StarCraft folder and rename it to "StarCraft.mpq".
- For Brood War, copy "INSTALL.EXE" from the Brood War CD to your StarCraft folder and rename it to "BroodWar.mpq".
5. Try the game on the PC without any CD inserted, if it works, you're ready to copy it to SD card.
6. Copy the whole game folder to pandora/appdata folder of SD card, and name it "starcraft". In the end you should have files like BroodWar.mpq directly in that folder.

Additional Info
Due to extensive changes to the game in later versions (OpenGL2 requirement, x86-only anti-cheat engine), only the classic 1.16.1 version is supported. This can be obtained by installing the game from CDs and then applying the patches. At the time of writing 1.16.1 patches are still available from Blizzard:

If the game doesn't start on Windows after following the instructions, make sure you disabled "hide file extensions for known file types" and check the file names again.
