Hmm, it might be because I only have this edition. My name is definitely 'Krazy' and then it says the character name/code thing is 647. Hopefully if it doesn't work, it will when I get the full game.
Won my first ever game of Starcraft against super easy AI
Can I only play as Terran in this edition, because I tried switching the races around but it wouldn't let me select. Other than that, the game ran really smoothly with some of the settings lowered, might even try putting some up in the future.
I think a little bit of teaching might be required though I just don't know anything about when I should be collecting gas, building which units etc.
Edit: I can only play as Terran in the starter, which sucks, Zerg looks far and away the most appealing to me. Ah well, I'll get the full game when I can after exams. Oh and by the way: Krazy - #647
65 percent through all these patches, making headway
And ahh okay, ta for the link. Well I will most likely want to play online, so I will probably pick up the full game some time. Cheers for helping me out with all this, hopefully I'll be playing my first game later on tonight (against the AI haha)
Probably closer to around half that roughly, didn't have my laptop downloading it for most of yesterday. However it is now installed, but I have to watch the lengthy application of all the patches aha.
What does the Starter Edition actually let me do? Bit worried I'll have to go through all this applying and downloading for the full game if I buy it aha. If so I might just sod this free edition and buy the game. But yeah sure I will
On second thoughts, the weekend would be the earliest I can buy the full game, so I might as well endure this horrendous downloading of patches while I wait eh.
You overestimate the power of my internet...
Aha, didn't really get my laptop on yesterday, but I'm at 85 percent now so with any luck I'll be playing my first Starcraft games later on today. Going to be hard for sure but hopefully I'll learn
Hopefully my Total War experience serves me a small amount of good aha.
Ahh okay, I see what it means now.
Well the demo is at 35 percent...slowly but surely we are getting there
The game still looks great even if people do use cheese builds/tactics/all-ins. Hopefully I can learn to scout well and counter it - plus after several years of Gears of War, I think I have learned to contain any anger towards annoying tactics
Yup, my internet is probably at snail's pace right now. I had a similar thing with TW demos though so it's no problem.
Another phrase that crops up practically everywhere on their forums is the word 'cheese' - makes me kind of concerned that people keep posting about games being boring when people just spam something. Do you find this a problem?
Oh and thanks for defining the words for me
Ahh, you share my pain as a laptop gamer then
Would you say Starcraft 2 is a balanced game at present? I went onto the official forums out of curiosity before, and there always seems to be someone saying 'X race is overpowered'. In fact I think the only race people don't complain about is Terran?
Doesn't really bother me though, I'm just going to see what it's like with the demo (if it ever downloads, it's painfully slow for some reason). Would a key unlock it instantly? Or are the keys even usable now they replaced the demo with the starter edition (that's what I read anyway) Thanks.
Ahh cool, I always appreciate a spanking off a good player so long as I learn something
Been watching X's tutorial for SC2, it has really helped me understand all the terminology, abbreviations and how the game works. I watch the pros play and it all happens so fast, it's hard to keep up sometimes. Could even be a few days to download this though mate, depends if I can keep my laptop on aha.
I have a similar thing with Total War. I downloaded the Shogun 2 demo, and turned everything down to lowest (including unit size) and it actually ran okay. However, the frame rate got murdered when you started looking at battles close up aha.
Even with Rome I turn all the environment effects down lowest/none, just because I value smooth games and unit detail over HD grass effects Probably do the same with Starcraft (which the starter edition is downloading now, but I may have to ask for a key if the download goes tits up)
