Some of you might have seen this post before, but I am uploading it again since the download link is dead. This will be my last upload of Starcraft Brood War Crack until I get around to uploading Starcraft II.
I wanted to make this for various reasons, primarily because the practicalities of getting a physical DVD with an installer and everything else can be quite annoying and time consuming. There are also some people that don’t have an internet connection, for various reasons. I am not claiming this is the best way to get the game, but if you are willing to put up with an installation procedure, then you can have it here. I would like to thank all the people who put in work on various tools and sources for this.
This was also made at the time when I had no idea how to play Starcraft, so I can’t provide help to anybody if you aren’t interested in playing multiplayer. I heard it has a great campaign though, so go check that out!
This version of Starcraft is meant for Windows 98/ME/2000/XP. It will NOT work on Vista or Windows 7. If you find a fix for it, let me know and I’ll add it here! Be warned: There may be some side effects and glitches with this method. Use at your own risk!
This crack does not work for StarCraft:Broodwar. It will only work on the original Starcraft.
There is a newer version of this article here: “Starcraft 1 Original Brood War NO-CD cracker [ultimate] [V2]”
To use this, you must first download and install WinRAR. You can get it here: http://www.rarlab.com/ or search google for it. I recommend that you get the WinRAR self extracting archive version because it makes everything a whole lot easier to do, trust me. Once you’ve downloaded WinRAR, run it and extract the files from the . rar file to wherever you like (preferably a folder you can remember). Now, double click on “install.bat”. The files should self extract and make a new folder called Starcraft NO-CD. Go to the Starcraft NO-CD folder and install it like you would any other program (make sure u chose the correct path).
If this worked for you and it didn’t crash, then I have included an updated version of Starcraft that will not crash. If you updated from a previous version of this crack then just replace all your files with these ones. This updated version will also work if you already have the original one installed.
