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:
-Multiplayer works almost flawlessly.
-Changing profile and etc...
-A part of the campaign
-General gameplay with 20 FPS at all highest except at high with the first lane with taskset -p 1.
What does not
-Some randoms crashes at some custom mode (Catch 'n' Run) occasionally
-Crash while exiting with Windows 7 mode.
-Some settings really slows down the game, such as everything related to shaders and terrain.
What was not tested
-I haven't played the entire campaign and all the custom maps.
-I didn't installed it, I did only copied-pasted it, I don't know if installing it directly may give better performance.
I am using a GTX 570 with max performance in the Nvidia control panel, 275.09 official drivers in a RPM file, a i7 950 with HT activated, not overclocked and 6 GB of RAM DDR3 1333. I tested with 1.3.23 and for better performance, use the taskset command. First, use the ps ax|grep SC2 command. It should show where is located StarCraft II with an ID. Now just use taskset -p 1 20102 (this is only an example, use yours). I also used the registry fix below.

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
