Mar 8 Low FPS in Windowed (Fullscreen) Mode We're aware of an OS bug where running some games in Fullscreen (Windowed) mode an cause a severe drop in FPS in-game. We anticipate this is addressed in the next OSX build. In the meantime, there are two different workarounds that may help! 1. Running the game in Fullscreen Running the game in fullscreen should not have the FPS degradation above. This does limit some functionality, such as ease of tabbing out of game without redrawing your desktop and Applications. 2. Minimize all background windows using Flash (including App) Flash applications drawn behind a Windowed (Fullscreen) application cause FPS loss. The Desktop App uses Flash elements as well, so minimizing this on launch can help. 1. Open the App > Settings. 2. On the General Tab, locate the When I launch a Game dropdown. 3. Select Close the Window 4. Click Done to finalize your changes.Glaxigrav0 Mar 8

1h Retina Fullscreen Not Acting as HiDPI I have a Retina Macbook Pro and noticed that, after a recent patch, selecting the Fullscreen Display Mode with 2880x1800 causes the game to display in 2880x1800, rather than acting as a 1440x900 screen with HiDPI. What this means is I have to move my cursor twice as far as I used to to get the same response. A workaround I have found is to do Fullscreen (Windowed), but this isn't desirable as I can't mess with the gamma settings in Fullscreen (Windowed), making the game a bit too dark. The other alternative is to simply do 1440x900 fullscreen, but this makes the game MUCH less pretty. Is there a way I can replicate the graphics I had before?MattZed1 1h
10h Mouse and keyboard not working in game I am using a MacbookPro mid 2012, I was playing just fine last night and then this morning I started playing and in both arcade and multiplayer games my mouse, keyboard, and hotkeys don't work (both external and internal). Esc does not work, but if something is selected I can use Q,W,E,R,T,Y, etc to summon/use. Also my game data was cleared for at least one arcade map (although match history still shows I played).Stunnz0 10h
2d Map Editor Bugs Dear Blizzard, I understand that you have your priorities but these bugs are just getting out of hand and a solution is needed, now. An actual update on this issue from a developer would be nice rather than just a "we are working on this issue"SSpiritual2 2d
2d Trigger Editor Seems To Be Crashing A Lot This is mostly happening to me with the trigger editor. To reproduce the crash, do the following: 1.) Create a new trigger 2.) Create a new action: Add Player To Player Group 3.) Within Add Player To Player Group, double click on "Group: (No Value)" 4.) The editor will crash I'm using the latest MacBook Pro with the touch bar on the latest version of OS X Sierra. This crash issue seems to occur primarily in the trigger editor.KubusKraft4 2d
3d Mac issues, how long Blizzard? So let me tell you my history, and I really hope that for once you actually read it. Let me start with a question, how many times do I have to adjust my gameplay, get rid of my muscle memory, and spent a considerable amount of time (which I don't have plenty of) to try to find workarounds for things that you keep breaking or just never fix? I'm a developer, and as such I'm really disappointed by the lack of QA specially when it comes to the Mac client. You've made me relearn the game more than once when you've decided my key repeat rate isn't good enough for your client to handle, I can think of at least twice this has happened. You've made switch DPI and polling speed on my mouse and adjust to it, because, again, you had to add a new Stukov commander or something. I've spent significant less time over the years learning hotkey layouts than I've had to relearn the game because of something that downright makes the game unplayable, that shouldn't have been released, and yet it was, and even then it's not fixed, even when reported. And that doesn't even begin to describe how much time I've spent and how many options I've fiddled with about the "mouse lags when holding keys" issue that's been persistent since forever. There's a bug since March related to FPS drops on windowed/windowed-fullscreen, why is this relevant? Because you made me switch to windowed back in 3.7 because you broke my mouse while holding on keys, and even without holding'em, and you broke RF, again, similar issues that a lot of people have reported on these forums. Then I found that windowed was a decent workaround (coupled with a few of the above), and I didn't experienced those FPS drops if I preloaded units before starting to play (again, another workaround) until 3.8 or 3.9 broke it again, because your client is stupid enough to use my max Retina resolution even when I've set to scaled. It used to do resolution switching when opening SC and now it doesn't anymore, now it's stuck with 2500x something which my graphic card couldn't possible handle. Even the FPS meter is so small in contrast to how big the mess is (It is a pun, except not quite, since I've attached an screenshot of it in another post). So, I'm now forced back to fullscreen with my mouse and keyboard being fishy at best, sometimes unplayable. It's infuriating what you've been doing with the updates, specially to the Mac client, and you broke every single workaround I've spent significant time finding out, when I shouldn't be having to find workarounds for broke stuff that's supposed to just work in a game I don't develop but paid for. It's really depressing and if I didn't love this game so much you'd be uninstalled since day 2 of issues. I've reported these, along with so many people on the forum, and nobody cares to respond. I wish I had the time to complain about balance, but your game is unplayable by the hour for me to have a view. How long, Blizzard?blackxored1 3d
4d MacBook Pro 2016 - Broken Resolution Hi, I've contacted support regarding this, almost 2 weeks ago. They've sent the report to the dev team - seems like the issue still persists ever since the 3.9 update. Basically - HighDPI is never recognised. Game always runs in a black 2880x1800 window (MBP 15" late 2016). If I choose a resolution from SC2, the game will be displayed in a small square. If I really want it full screen I have to play it in 2800x1800 or above (or play it in fullscreen window mode) which severally affects performance - getting 10FPS so it's unplayable. Any advice on how to fix this? Tried it on 3 different MacBook Pro's 2016's now, 2 of them on a clean install so the issue is definitely from SC2. Thanks, DanDan4 4d
5d Infinite Loading Circle in Multiplayer On SC2, I cannot enter any multiplayer games because there is a loading circle that never disappears. I tried all sorts of things based on what I read in the forums including the following: - Repair the game via options - Delete caches - Delete SC2 Folder - Delete Folder - Uninstall and reinstall NONE of the above worked...Help?

5d Mouse Lag when holding down Keys. Need help! This just started happening recently. Might of been with new macOS Sierra update. When I hold down a key on my keyboard like "z" to make Zerglings, my mouse lags ridiculously. It "stutter-steps" when I try moving it. I don't get why this just started happening. Never had a problem with it before. Any ideas what could be happening? It's making it impossible to queue up move commands. Only happens in Starcraft.

5d CMD + F5 Hotkey Issues There's already been a topic on this, but with no solution thus far. I'm using a Macbook Air, with all of my hotkeys working except one. My CMD+F5 Hotkey that I'm trying to use to set a camera will not save at all. If I set it in the middle of the game, it'll work throughout the game until it ends, but as soon as we go back into the main menu, it'll just unbind it self. If I bind it again, the problem persists again the game. Has anyone ever been able to fix this?Cresteen0 5d
6d Stuck on "Updating Agent" (Mac) So I just reinstalled the firmware on my Mac and was trying to get the client. It's been sitting there like that for at least half an hour and no luck.

Jan 12 Weird graphic bug on Covert Ops Hi, I'm using a late 2012 iMac with an i7 3.1ghz, 16GB ram, GT 650M. I'm running MacOS 10.12.2. SC2 LOTV runs quite well to be honest, but I have a glitch with the Nova Covert Ops cut scenes. In all the cut scenes, most character, especially Nova, look like they are surrounded by jello. It's like there is some transparent layer on their skin. It's a bit ugly and distracting. Gameplay is fine. It's inly in the cut scenes. It's nothing dramatic, and I hoped a patch would fix it but... no such luck. I've played with setting (guessed it was probably a texture or lightning/shadows issue) but to no avail. Any clue? Thanks!Manu0 Jan 12
Jan 12 How to play offline. Well, we finally got internet out here where I'm deployed and it took me 3 days to download, patch, and update but I'm finally able to play SCII. However, the internet connection in the DFAC isn't as great as the one in my room and I'd like something to do between meals and during serving hours. I'm trying to play offline but it says it can't let me do that because all the information isn't downloaded from the server yet, but when the launcher... launches, it's says my game is up to date. I noticed that the campaign missions 'stream' data when I start them, does this have anything to do with that? I can get online just fine, it's the offline play that I'm going for. Thanks and cheers.Cheddar27 Jan 12

Jan 8 Custom Maps Won't Show or Download When I go to the Custom Games section, and look for open games or try to browse maps and create my own, I'm stuck with the spinning recticle in the center of my screen. Maps don't load on screen. Yesterday they were loading but when I would try to create a game, my screen would show that I was downloading the map, but it never finished (I had friends in my group who downloaded the map in 5-10 seconds). So far, I've used the Terminal Flush, deleted my cache, and last night I uninstalled and reinstalled the game. Still no luck. Please let me know what I can do to fix this issue. It seems like a server connectivity issue of some kind, but I have no firewalls or anything that I can imagine would be causing this problem. Thanks! EDIT: I also just remembered that watching Replays does not work either (I experience the same loading issue that I described above - the rest of my group would load a replay and watch it while I remained stuck in menus with a "Downloading..." status). EDIT 2: I can now no longer see matchmaking of any kind. Only thing that works is campaign... Please help!!AaronRodgers23 Jan 8

Jan 1 Razer Naga unable to bind control groups I have a Razer Naga 2012, and a Logitech G510 keyboard. When I'm in game the game doesn't recognize Control+1, and that's 1 on the side of the mouse. It works if I use the number row across the top but not if it's pressed from the m ouse. However I'm able to click any of the numbers after the control group has been made and the game recognizes the button press, but still unable to control and click on the numbers of the mouse to add more units. I believe it's the game since I used the macro keys on the left of the keyboard and assigned it the same button Control and any number on the mouse. I go in game and press that from the keyboard which is the exact same keystroke and mouse button and it works. 1. Control with any number on mouse doesn't work together when in this game 2. If macro'd to the keyboard it works Razer support says it's not the mouse neither since it works if the button combination is used to the keyboard. As well I can do the control with any number on the mouse in Warhammer Dawn of War 2 with no problems. So the issue is for sure Starcraft 2.ZERGonCREEP6 Jan 1

Dec 29 OS X 10.12.2, SC2 3.9.1, Mouse Tackpad lag Ever since updating to OS X 10.12.2, the second SC2 is loaded (note not the app), the trackpad lags. The cursor moves extremely slowly. If one loads up System Preferences, Trackpad, and then changes or even simply taps on the Tracking Speed cursor, normal functionality returns. This does not apply to external mouses, everything works perfectly fine with those. Nor does normal functionality return upon closing the SC2 application. The trackpad will continue to experience the issue until one taps the Tracking Speed cursor in system preferences. Is this a known issue? I suspect it might be an OS X bug since loading the Razer Synapse Software also causes the exact same problem, in case that helps.Veritas0 Dec 29
Dec 29 3.9.1 Gestures and Keyboard Shortcuts Broken I'm currently running I'm also running OS X 10.12.2 I don't know if it was the latest SC2 update or the latest OS X update, but my Mouse Gestures, like for example 4 finger swipe to see Mission Control or change Desktops, are no longer working when the SC2 is in full screen mode. Keyboard shortcuts and F keys are also not working. In the options of SC2 I do not have the Disable OS Keyboard Shortcuts enabled (though I tried toggling it on and off to fix the issue with no success). Is anyone else having this problem? Is this a known issue? In Windowed mode everything works normal, however the performance on my laptop is unsatisfactory so I'm forced to playing in Fullscreen mode.Veritas0 Dec 29
Dec 27 StarCraft II freezes at loading screen Hello, as of recently (last month or two) when I boot up starcraft it gets stuck at the loading the screen, the one with Jim Raynor looking at me. If it is in windowed mode, I can force quit it, but if I am in fullscreen I need to restart my computer. Once I restart my computer it works fine, but I have to do this every time I want to play Starcraft. Do you know how I can fix this?Jon15 Dec 27
Dec 26 Editor Really Broken in 3.8 I want to cross-post the thread from Editor Discussion here: . As of 3.8, the editor crashes when you edit any placed doodads or triggers, meaning it's just not usable.

Dec 26 Install/Update problems after using VPN I'm seeing a "waiting on another installation or update" and I'm unable to play the game. This started after I was away from home and using a VPN service to connect to my home network. I forgot to turn it off before I started up Starcraft. It was taking too long to do an update so I realized it and turned off the VPN. Now, it won't seem to finish the update unless I connect the VPN again. I've tried the following: 1. Reboot 2. Flush dns by the killall mDNSResponder 3. Reinstall the B.Net Agent manually 4. Reinstall B.Net altogether (this only worked when the VPN was on) 5. Reinstall SC2 (this only worked when the VPN was on) After #5 I eventually got a "Your installation is damaged" error. After this I tried to repair but got stuck in "waiting on another installation or update" again. I'm not sure what to do to get this working.George1 Dec 26

Dec 20 Right click not working when moving units I normally play on windows but installed Starcraft on my MacBook Pro. I've gone into preferences for the system and enable right clicking for the mouse. I've confirmed that right click works outside on Starcraft. In the game I click on a unit like my SCV and right click a resource node and it doesn't move. So I can't order units to move or attack. Everything else seems to work fine. I can use the trackpad to issue the command but that is not going to work for anything competitive. Troubleshooting I've done so far: Used multiple mice to make sure it's not a hardware issue turned on right click in the system preferences>Trackpad settings Verified right clicking is working outside of Starcraft. I can right click files I rebuilt the files through the launcher I uninstalled and reinstalled the software Thanks in advance for any suggestions you feel like sharingAskarius1 Dec 20
Dec 20 Mac Implementation Can I ask about some of implementation details? Did you update sc2 to use Metal API? If no, will you plan to do it? People on the web suggest to play via bootcamp to have higher fps with higher visual settings. Is it true that with bootcamp sc2 runs faster on Mac? If yes, what's the reason of that? Do you natively support Mac or there is some kind of hack(s) in Mac implementation? Probably, I asked some details that cannot be disclosured; I would appreciate any general idea answers.blinx3 Dec 20

Dec 18 Cursor The cursor for my mouse is not showing up in game. How can this be fixed?loupenical3 Dec 18
Dec 17 Cursor moves/disappears when drag-scrolling With Patch 3.6, the cursor doesn't stay in its place when the scroll-wheel-button for drag-scrolling is clicked. When I click and immediately release the scroll wheel button on the 3D world (terrain, units, or buildings), the cursor reappears closer to the top-left corner of the screen. Both the new X and Y positions appear to be about 2/3 of their original values. Repeated clicking will move the cursor closer to the top-left in smaller and smaller increments. This behavior also occurs during actual drag-scrolling. The 3D world scrolls as expected, but the mouse cursor reappears closer to the top-left of the screen. If the cursor started out very close to the top-left of the screen, it will sometimes remain invisible after the scroll-wheel-button is released. I can still use the mouse to select units and buildings, or even click the command card, but the cursor is invisible. The cursor will only reappear if I move the mouse and then middle-click on the 3D world. When the cursor is invisible, drag-scrolling can sometimes result in abrupt, unexpected changes in camera location. This latter behavior is intermittent and difficult to reproduce. The above behavior occurs in both Fullscreen and Windowed-Fullscreen. In Windowed mode, the mouse cursor moves vertically (not diagonally) when the scroll-wheel-button is clicked. Sometimes it moves up, sometimes it moves down. Tested in-game on Versus A.I. and Ranked, drag scroll speed at 65%, inverted. Observed with mouse scroll and mouse sensitivity turned both on and off. Observed with Logitech MX500, G400s and G5 mice. MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2011) 2.5 GHz Intel Core i7 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Mac OS X Yosemite (10.10.5) Thanks! Hope someone can figure out this bug soon.Philip2 Dec 17
Dec 17 Editor still broken in Patch 3.9 Hey all, As some of you may know the Galaxy Editor has been broken ever since the release of the final chapter of Nova Convert Ops. A recent blue post indicated that this is indeed a bug and will be fixed in a future patch but it is still broken in the current patch. I'm really disappointed in Blizzard that they are putting Mac users behind schedule just because more people use Windows.SSpiritual1 Dec 17
Dec 16 lots of tooltips missing A lot of the unit tooltips are missing since 3.9. It just shows a greened out box where, for example, a zergling would have been. anyone else have a similar issue and know a fix?Nugletking1 Dec 16
Dec 14 Resolution switching since patch 3.9 What's the reason why the resolution switching was changed in patch 3.9? Before the patch, I could switch resolutions from 1920x1200 to 1280x800 (same aspect ratio) without issue. The game simply became slightly blurrier and pixelated, but it was good enough to play. Now the mouse cursor becomes too fast, so I have to go into system preferences and tune down the tracking speed. The problem is that with a lower tracking speed, the mouse acceleration curve is now different, since the two are linked on Mac OS X. It makes it difficult to adjust when switching resolutions, which I have to do because the game runs too slow at native resolution (especially co-op), but the menus are difficult to read at 1280x800 upscaled, especially in the chat windows (it was better before the font was changed in patch 3.0). If there isn't a good reason for this, please change it back. It was working just fine before.hawk0 Dec 14
Dec 10 Bug with "Add to Control Group" and modifier Apologies if this belong in the Mac sub-forum; however, it appears to be more of a bug than a Mac technical issue. General Description: After assigning a unit to a control group when using “Add to control group and steal” or “Add to control group,” the game does not recognize that the modifier is no longer pressed on the keyboard. Specific Description: I use TheCore keybindings for SC2, so my modifier for “Add to control group and steal” is Ctrl. When I add units to a control group using “Add to group and steal,” the game behaves as if I am still holding my Ctrl key down. For example, after adding a probe to a control group at the start of a game using "Add to control group and steal", if I execute no other actions with the keyboard, the next time I left click a probe it will select all probes in the mineral line (this happens irrespective of how long I wait to click the second probe). Mouse actions do not cancel this effect (i.e., I can click on my nexus between clicking on probes at will still Ctrl+click the probes), but keyboard actions do (i.e., if I press any hotkey I can then click normally). Steps: 1) Play a 1v1 match (as any race--I did test Terran and Zerg). 2) Add worker to control group using “Add to control group” or “Add to control group and steal.” 3) Left click on another worker. 4) All workers in the mineral line are now selected. Any mouse action performed—-until a new keyboard action is performed--behaves as if Ctrl is held. Further details: -This does not happen for “Create control group and steal” or “Create control group,” only for “Add to control group (and steal).” -The same effect happens regardless of the modifier I used, except for the Command key on the Mac. I tested the Standard hotkey layout (using Shift instead of Control), and the effect remained. However, when I selected “Use Command instead of Control for Hotkeys” in the options menu, the effect does not occur when using Command as the modifier. -Upon attempting to edit the hotkey(s) for “Add to control group (and steal),” the hotkey editor also believes that the control key is still pressed down and it leaves me unable to edit hotkeys for “Add to control group (and steal).” Taken together, the last two notes are why I was unsure which sub-form to submit this to. Since the issue shows up in the hotkey editor, that indicated to me that it was a bug somewhere deeper, but since the Command modifier worked it's probably a Mac specific issue. As a final note, the effect is SC2 specific. It does not happen in other games (i.e. WC3 or Dota 2). I ruled out some sort of hardware issue because of this. Also, this didn't happen on 3.7, but I wasn't playing frequently enough at launch of 3.8 to know if it started at 3.8 or at the recent small balance patch.iciclE0 Dec 10
Dec 9 Detected incorrect Video Card I just got my new iMac 27" i7 3,5 GHz (16 GB RAM) and with the upgrade NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4096 MB (+ 3GB SSD/HD drive) My problem is that for some reason SC2 detects my buildin Intel Iris pro graphics card and NOT the NVIDIA. Ill also tryede the SystemCheck and it also only sees the Intel Iris Pro (known issue by Blizzard) The suggested setting in StarCraft under "Options - Graphics" is Medium on both Textures and Graphics. My old system was a iMac 2009 and the suggested settings for this was High. Does anyone know how to force StarCraft to detect and use my NVIDIA graphics card?

Dec 9 Editor Crashes, El Capitan, p.3.8.0 I have iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014). OS X, El Capitan 10.11.6 (15G1108) If I'm going to menu Map and trying to select almost any menu item (for example Map Info), Editor crashes. If I'm trying to open some object properties, for example double click on Mineral or Gas, editor crashes. I sent like 10 crash reports to Blizzard during the last week. It looks like one issue, just widespread.zoonman1 Dec 9
Dec 7 Problems with 10.12 and Mac Pro with GTX 970 I have been running a Mac Pro with an Nvidia GTX 970 and the latest Mac OS for over a year and have been playing SC2 wonderfully, but since updating to macOS Sierra 10.12, I haven't been able to get to load. It bounces like it's loading but then crashes. Since others are running it fine, it makes me suspect it is my GPU that is giving the game problems. Has anyone else (especially the Mac Pro-PC GPU crowd) had any problems?Galactic3 Dec 7
