Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, and Legacy of the Void, including Starter Editions
Please try the Stater Edition before buying the game to make sure it works on your system (link below). It includes the first campaign (Wings of Liberty) and the Arcade (Mods)
Consider including the following in your test results:
Installing the game via downloadable client
High and ULTRA settings (with bugs, see below)
Playing the game (completed most of the side missions already)
What does not
Installing the game from DVD, even when unhide command works
There are a few bugs when the shaders are set higher than medium, those bugs are:
Raynor's hair doesn't display properly
In Lost Viking, most of the projectiles or lighting effects draw on the background, HOWEVER they draw when they're fired above an object (Protoss structure, asteroid, etc.)
Ingame the firebats flames won't draw
Occasionally you'll see a gray background instead of a space one on the bridge
What was not tested
I think the shader bugs are related to the black background on the installer. A real pity that a very few effects don't work when the shaders are cranked, because the game is absolutely beautiful with them turned up.

If using custom gamma settings or using an application that automatically changes gamma (e.g. redshift) then at specific times, your gamma setting may reset for a short time.
To fix this, open the registry editor and navigate to:
Inside the newly created "X11 Driver" add the chain value "UseXVidMode" and set it to "N".
After a Battle.net update or a crash, there are sometimes old processes left running that may interfere with your next launch. These processes can be killed before trying again:
killall -i -r '.exe'
Or you can do this manually (and more safely):
ps x #and then....kill as necessary after you got the process ID in the first column
#of course it doesn't hurt to take a look at the manual for these commands:
You can download the StarCraft II Starter Edition for free via the Battle.net Launcher, which includes the first campaign (Wings Of Liberty) and the Arcade (Mods).
Please test how / if the game works before buying it.
As of October Windows XP is no longer supported
