****ONLINE PLAY NO LONGER WORKS****
****YOU WILL NEED A CD KEY****
If you are running OSX and having trouble getting classic mode working these are the files you need to get it working. https://www.macintoshrepository.org/2467-mac-os-9-2-2-system-folders
If you use the OSX Installer included on this page it will allow you to install in OSX Natively. This will allow you to use the update files (also included) to update to v1.16.1 which among many bug fixes also allows you to copy the "Starcraft Archive" and "Brood War Archive" files from the discs into the "Starcraft Files" folder which will allow you to play the game without a disc mounted.
OSX_Installer NOTE: When using the OSX installer choosing to install Brood War actually installs both the Base Game and Brood War.
Update NOTE: You do not need both update folders. "StarCraft v1161 OSX" is used just for the BASE GAME. If you installed Brood War then you will only need "Brood War v1161 OSX"
Online Play NOTE: Unfortunately you can not connect to Battle.net using v1.16.1 Since Blizzard released "Starcraft Anthology" they have patched to v1.18 which can only be installed via the "Starcraft Anthology" Installer which I'm pretty sure will only work with intel based macs.
CD KEY NOTE: You can find one easily on google, and since you can't play online anyway you won't have to worry about someone else using it.
Emulating this? It should run fine under: SheepShaver
