To get ipx network support, IPX will have to be enabled in the kernel, and you need some userspace utilities, usually called ipx-utils; and IPX must be started (there should be an initscript).
*ubuntu users can use the commands:
sudo apt-get install ipx; sudo modprobe ipx; sudo ipx_interface add -p eth0 802.2 0x12345678
(change eth0 for the name of your ethernet/wireless card)
The frame type (802.2) needs to be equal for everyone. It is recommended to use ethernet II instead of 802.2. If playing with computers with Windows, make sure their frame type is set to what you have, and not 'automatic'. It may cause issues if you forget it.
if you update the game to 1.15.2 then you can also play using UDP
There is now an official Blizzard patch for StarCraft that allows you to play without the CD.
After updating to the latest version, copy over the big "install.exe" from the CDs, and rename them "StarCraft.mpq" and "BroodWar.mpq" depending on which CD you get them from.
Using older version of Starcraft and Broodwar does not cause any trouble with the copy protection. If you've installed it and still get the "Insert Starcraft CD" message, make sure your CD-ROM drive is listed in your config - and that it's marked as a CD-rom drive, not a local hard drive. If the drive letter changed since installation time, you might have to run regedit, and manually update this registry key: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Blizzard Entertainment\StarCD" to reflect this.
If that does not work, you can still try the old method:
First, put the CD in!
If you've already installed it, great. If not, go do that.
Then, do this on the command line:
To mount this image of the CD:
sudo mkdir /media/iso0
sudo mount -o loop ~/BroodWar.iso /media/iso0
Using winecfg, add a new drive that points to /media/iso0, and give it the type CD-ROM. Finally, run StarCraft.exe in your program files and you're done! Whenever you want to mount it again, just do:
sudo mount -o loop ~/BroodWar.iso /media/iso0
When you're done and don't feel like keeping it mounted, just do:
sudo umount /media/iso0
If you have any issues still with StarCraft complaining about no CD being inserted, make sure the iso mount point you made is configured as a CD-ROM device in winecfg, and make sure you have already mounted it first!
Run the game once and it will generate ddraw.ini in the game folder. You can edit this configuration file to your preference. Example:
; restore mouse mhack=false ; smooth a graphics filter=linear renderer=opengl ; run in fullscreen windowed=falseSome Wine versions (e.g. 1.7.46 -- 1.7.47) hang completely with their native ddraw. CNC-ddraw will fix this issue as well.
