Starcraft Broodwar does work on wine/winex

OtisLinux ..

(Throughout this post I assume you are user root)
Armm sorry out of habit I used ~ where I shouldn't. That "~" symbol when you use it in a console window in a command like i.e cd ~/.wine is like saying take me in the directory .wine which is located in my HOME directory 'as root: cd /root/.wine' 'as someUser:cd /home/someUser/.wine'...but it doesn't work that way when used on the wines config file..

So the problem resides in wine configuration file /root/.wine/config .

In normal case the C drive should point to either directory:
/root/.wine/c_drive
or
/root/.wine/c

You simply have to change to where your drive C is pointing at in /root/.wine/config
[Drive C]
"Path" = "/root/.wine/c_drive"
"Type" = "hd"

or

[Drive C]
"Path" = "/root/.wine/c"
"Type" = "hd"

depending on how you have named the fake C directory

- Check if the right path of the cdrom mountpoint is declared correctly in wines config file

[Drive D]
"Path" = "/mnt/cdrom" <--- I think this is the default mountpoint for many distros
"Type" = "cdrom"
"Device" = "/dev/cdrom" <--- Maybe this should need change as well

- Also, you have to mount the cd in the cdrom device before trying to install starcraft !!

If non of them is the case feel free to ask };) just give more details of the problem. Btw I think they removed the system.ini file on the latest wine version....it is probably created on the fly

-- OtisLinux --

Starcraft plays at 640x480 so that's the screen resolution that you actually need. If the game do start but the mouse can move outside the game!! then before running "wine starcraft.exe" try to run "wineserver" in a console window.
Check the [x11drv] section of your config file to be similar to this:

"AllocSystemColors" = "100"
"PrivateColorMap" = "N"
"PerfectGraphics" = "N"
"Managed" = "Y"
"UseDGA" = "N"
"UseXVidMode" = "Y"
"UseXRandR" = "Y"
"UseTakeFocus" = "Y"
"DXGrab" = "Y"

If the Gnome toolbar is cached on the games screen, I would suggest you to try another Windows Manager than Gnome as I have noticed that it causes errors like the ones you have just mentioned and most important Gnome does not allow Battlenet Connections!.. maybe WindowMaker/Blaclbox/KDE .. On a linux box you can switch resolutions using the sequence "Ctrl+Alt+-" or "Ctrl+Alt++"

I hope this helps,
GL
