StarCraft Patch 1.161 Released

A new patch for Blizzard's nearly 11-year-old RTS StarCraft is now available on FileShack in both regular StarCraft and Brood War expansion form.

The 1.161 update resolves a bug that was introduced with the last patch, speeds up palette cycling and adds the option to enable CPU throttling at your own discretion.

    Feature Changes
    • In-game Speed Options menu now has a "Enable CPU Throttling" checkbox. Enabling this option will allow StarCraft to consume fewer CPU cycles. By default this option is off.
    Bug Fixes
    • Fixed an issue with the reply feature where any character followed by a "r " was being treated as a reply.
    • Removed an unnecessary delay when processing palette cycling updates.
    • Lessened the imposed delay in the CPU Throttling feature.

      Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.
