What works

  • Campaign
  • Custom Games
  • Menus
  • LAN Play

What does not

Multiplayer menus are extremely slow to load.

Workarounds

  1. Create a clean 32 bit Wine prefix.
  2. Set the windows version to Windows 7 using winecfg.
  3. Use winetricks to install corefonts and vcrun2015.
  4. Set vcruntime104 to (native) in the libraries tab of winecfg.
  5. Install the Battle.net launcher. When logging into the launcher, you may have to use the unstyled HTML form at the bottom of the login form to log in instead of the normal fields.
  6. Install StarCraft.

Game should run normally from here.

What was not tested

Battle.NET play, couldn't find a match ;)

HowTo / Notes

Installing with the Blizzard Downloader

You will need mshtml.dll and wininet.dll from internet explorer 6SP1

I got mine using the latest version of ies4linux

Copy them to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

Use the libraries tab in winecfg to set them both to native

Downloading and installing should now work
