    I'm probably one of the few here who doesn't know how to play Starcraft. Maybe it's time to learn?

    Download time.

    question, in windows, when you select a unit and then right click the mouse into a mineral i.e SCV, what's the counterpart of that move in mac?

    thank you in advance :)

    edit to add....the command key and then click on the mouse is the one i'm looking for

    Might be "G" for Gather. You can identify the hotkey from the text of the button for gathering resources on the lower right box.

    This game is the reason why I am now working in the national university of Oman. 8 years ago, after playing almost 24 hours straight finishing all missions, I decided to take a rest and search for academic job vacancy and the rest is history.

    Yes, it brings back the memories and the child on me.

    Note:
    I am now playing while listening to a research presentation in a research forum. (y)

    There is no cow level! Haha

    Guys, any idea how big the whole download would be? Only had a glimpse of the installer for about 3mb or so.

    so I have a PC somewhere and decided to install starcraft on it....

    I keep getting this annoying error "unable to initialize OpenGL" and then the game doesn't open.

    anyone who encountered this and was able to solve it on their windows laptop? it's working well on an Imac.

    thanks in advance :)
