What do you mean? As in play the Protoss/Zerg Campaign? Because the campaign is only the Terran storyline. The next storyline will be that of the zerg, and it'll be released with an expansion I think, called Heart of the Swarm. The expansion doesn't effect multiplayer [as in nothing about multi player will change, so you can still play multiplayer without buying xpac], but you can't play the continued storyline.

Are you sure it doesn't effect multiplayer?

Broodwars added new units and completely changed how Starcraft 1 was played.

I hope they don't add new units because then I won't have any reason to buy it .... Unless they ad LAN support with it...

I am loving the SP. It has been taking up most of my gaming time since release and I am only about halfway through. The final prophecy mission is epic!

I have come across a little tidbit which may interest some of you. This may be old news to some of you, but I was not aware of it. I knew there were SC2 issues with overheating, but all I heard of it in the past was faulty nvidia drivers. Well I came across this small fix that caps the framerate in the menus (30 fps) and ingame (60 fps). Now my card no longer site at 100% load no matter where I am. It is basically just a frame limiter so you aren't pumping out unnecessary 900 fps during loading/menus. Your graphics card may thank me. You can edit the values to your own liking, these work well for me.

Place the values below in:

Just bought it, installing it now. Hopefully I won't regret this.
post #227 of 25318
Having never played SC1, and the last RTS I've played being the first C&C, I didn't know what to expect. I played about 2 hours on a guest pass last night. I'm thoroughly impressed with the attention to detail and the polish put into everything from the voice acting to the menus.

It reeks of quality, I'm excited to finish the campaign and pound on people in MP.

I don't understand how the install is taking an hour or more for people, unless they are actually talking about the 6.6gb digital download. I installed in literally less than 10 minutes. Probably more like 5.

I just turn on Vsync. Seems to work well enough for me.

You have a RAID 0 Took me maybe 6-8 minutes on my ancient non-SSD hard drive.

Installation only took about 10 mins for me as well. And I just have regular non SSD drives.

Does anybody have a spare guest/trial pass? XD I'm a big fan of CNC but never played Starcraft.
