So I downloaded starcraft 1 from, because that's where I bought it, but when I go to play on, it tells me that was unable to identify my application version and that I may have a virus. Now I know I don't have a virus, so how can I make this work?

I just changed the options in wine to automatically capture the mouse in fullscreen windows (on) and allow the window manager to decorate the windows (on) allow the window manager to control the window (off) emulate a virtual desktop (off) and instead of not connecting to battle net it just shows a black screen with the white writing, anyone know how to fix that? – user115710 Dec 20 '12 at 0:09

That might help. Go down the page to the multiplayer how to.
