According to Sean Burbidge, the StarCraft 1.04 patch kills any support under WINE. Sound appears to work perfectly, alas video is non-functional. The 1.04 patch tried out by Sean was applied to a fresh installation of StarCraft, and not to any other previously patched versions. Darn, and just when we seemed to be coming close.
On another note, I’m the new temporary updater around here. I will be helping out with the LinuxGames news this winter while others are busy visiting family and aren’t able to dedicate as much time as previously possible.
