An app for Android, called Winulator by Dan Aloni software, is being developed that lets users run Windows EXE/DLL files on ARM devices. So far, this app supports one game: Caesar III. StarCraft: Brood War patch v1.16.1 is currently in working progress and will be the next game to be supported. You can watch a short preview of the developer testing StarCraft on a tablet with full touch controls in the video below.

Google released an entertaining StarCraft-related easter egg today, for reasons unknown yet. To see it, just go to google.com and search “zerg rush”. Your search results will be attacked by a bunch of “zerglings” which will group up at the end to spell out GG.
Update: There are several sites now saying that a Google spokesperson gave out this quote:
“For n00bs who aren’t as familiar with real-time strategy games, there’s been a zerg rush on your search results page. Because there should always be time to practice your gaming skills, click on the zerg units to defend the results page and try not to get pwned. Then you can share you APM score on Google+. GLHF!”
So apparently you can kill those “zerglings” by clicking on them to get a high score and post on Google+. I read somewhere that this whole thing might have been created to be a promotion for Google+. Anyway, I think it’s pretty cool that Google made something for us StarCraft fans.

I just realized that I haven’t uploaded Monikon’s Mini StarCraft to icyHell yet. In the previous posts about this, I just linked to the creator’s webpage. However, that website is gone now, thus I will host the file here for everyone to download.
For those who don’t know about this yet, this is a very small version of StarCraft Brood War that can be put in your USB drive so you can take StarCraft wherever you go! You can even play on Battle.net if you use a valid CD-key.

So how many of you still play StarCraft on Windows 7 with the colors all messed up? To be honest, this doesn’t really matter, because once you start a match, all the colors will be fine. The colors are only weird before, and after a match.
But, if you really want to fix this color problem manually, just follow the steps below:
- Start StarCraft
- Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open Task Manager
- Find explorer.exe and click End Process
- Alt+Tab to get back into StarCraft
After you’re done playing StarCraft, you need to re-open explorer.exe:
- Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open Task Manager
- Click File > New Task
- Type “explorer” and press enter
Now how was that? Wouldn’t it be better if there was a script to close and re-open explorer.exe for you? Well, guess what? You can make one! Here’s how:
- Open Notepad
- Copy and paste these 3 lines into Notepad:
taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe "C:\Program Files\StarCraft\starcraft.exe" start explorer.exe
- Make sure that 2nd line in Notepad is where your StarCraft is located, otherwise change it
- Click File > Save As, and name the file as ColorFix.cmd.
If you are having trouble creating the ColorFix.cmd file, you may download it below:Windows 7 StarCraft Color Fix (352 B, 5531 hits)
Now you can go enjoy your StarCraft with normal colors!
