Starcraft 2 "fry" graphics cards! (Quick Fix)
« on: 01. August 2010., 12:47:59 »


One of the biggest game releases of the year is Starcraft 2, the sequel to one of the biggest games of all time. However there are numerous reports of issues, one of which that can destroy your graphics card in your computer.

Adam Biessener from Game Informer had his card "fry", saying this in his attempt at live blogging the game.

"Three hours of cursing later, I'm posting this from my wife's laptop because both my graphics card and my work laptop appear to be fried."

Blizzard has told people via their technical support Website, that they are aware of the issue, and seeking to solve the problem: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/13501356

"Screens that are light on detail may make your system overheat if cooling is overall insufficient. This is because the game has nothing to do so it is primarily just working on drawing the screen very quickly."

The bug is caused when the game gets to a menu, and then the game will continually render it over and over again. This is due to the fact that the game has no frame rate lock on the menu so it continually recreates the menu until your card fries.

Luckily, a quick Fix is exactly that, a quick fix, go to the directory that you have installed Starcraft 2, and locate the "variables.txt" file. Possible directory may be this: "Documents\StarCraft II\variables.txt".

Once you are at the .txt file, add the following:

frameratecapglue=30
frameratecap=60


Hopefully Blizzard can release a patch, to rectify the issue soon, so no more people have to have a dead card on their hands.

The other thing that sucks with Starcraft 2......is no LAN support for games.

As I know, there is some rumors about LAN support for "Starcraft 2 Professional Edition": http://www.sc2blog.com/2010/06/14/starcraft-ii-professional-edition-with-lan-support/

But We'll see...   ;)

Darn...... I was hoping that Blizzard would release a LAN version.....to the general public. I'm holding off buying it until LAN is added as my main aim was to buy it so I could play it with the kids on the LAN...not across Battlenet.

There is a petition to get LAN support: http://www.petitiononline.com/LANSC2/petition.html

yeaaa... of all the old features to be carried over from the classic starcraft... Why wasn't LAN added?...


Would Hamachi be a temporary solution for the non-LAN issue?
