Thank you very much! Kerrigan finally looks normal on the load screen, and all menus are looking back to the original!I made two small changes to your batch file:1: I used %~dp0% which is the batch file's current filepath, used to find starcraft.exe easier.2: By running 'start explorer.exe' instead of 'explorer.exe', you don't have to close the command prompt windows after exiting the game.Simplified Step 4: .BAT Solution1. Create new text file (right click > new > text document). Name it whatever.txt.2. Rename it to "RunStarcraft.bat". MAKE SURE you are changing the filetype to .bat (if you don't see the .txt while renaming, you need to Show File Extensions Windows).3. Right click it > Edit. Copy and paste the following four lines into it:taskkill /f /IM explorer.exe%~dp0%\Starcraft.exestart explorer.exeexitPlace "RunStarcraft.bat" wherever your Starcraft.exe file is (in the game's folder), and run it. Problem solved, for me on Win7x64.
OMG I have always wanted to play and I thought Id google how to play SC1 again since after xp it never worked right. The compatabilty mode has never worked for me. The batch file killing explorer works like a freakin miracle. Super stoked ty!
