StarCraft® II

After 1.5.1 patch, will not run at all

I installed the 1.5.1 patch, now SC2 won't open. At all. I get a black screen for a few minutes, then it crashes and the blizzard error report thing opens. I had a similar issue with 1.5 but it fixed itself after a reinstall. No dice this time - even after a full reinstallation it didn't work.

Also, SC2 won't install on a Windows XP installation running through Parallels.

And, for some reason SC2 will only run on low graphics settings even though my computer should be able to handle much better than it.

This is really sucky since I was trying to finish up the single player campaign and now I can't even get into it.

I am running a MacBook Pro, the most recent model - 2.6ghz intel core i7, 8 GB ram 1600 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB, running 10.7.4.

Another MacBook Pro user here with very similar issues. At this time I can only run the game in low graphics settings and even then I get only about 14fps, even in menus. Cutscenes are laughably jerky and animations are more like teleportations.

Prior to this patch my system typically got between 30 and 45 fps on medium graphics settings.

Technically, the game is actually running for me, but it runs so poorly the experience is quite un-fun.
