One solution to play StarCraft (1998) on a modern computer is through the Strategy Game Emulator called 'Stratagus'. It is a free cross-platform real-time strategy gaming engine, which you can use to play StarCraft (1998). Here's how you can do it: 1. Download and install Stratagus. You can potentially find the latest version on GitHub or through other platforms. 2. Copy your original StarCraft data files (located on your StarCraft CD or in the installed directory) to the directory of the Stratagus game engine. Rename the StarCraft data files so they match the datasets expected by the Stratagus game engine. 3. Run the game using Stratagus and ensure your system meets the minimum specifications to run the game smoothly. Remember to comply with all copyright regulations when using old game files. Alternatively, Blizzard (the company that developed StarCraft) has released a remastered version of StarCraft, updated to run on modern systems and with enhanced visuals. You can purchase and download it off and it'll run smoothly on most recent computers without any extra tweaking. Always remember to check the game's requirements against your PC's specifications before installing to avoid any issues.
