Nov 27 how to play offline I want to launch SC2 in offline mode to play with AI or campaign or to test some build orders but when i push "RUN" button at the app i see error message: "You need to download 100% data". How can i do it. I try to contact support with that problem. They tell me to disable "autonomous mode" at Internet Explorer. And to delete "" and "Blizzard Entertainment" folders at "C:\ProgramData". I did it but the result is the same as before. Game needs 100% data to launch offline. What i need to do to be able to run the game in offline mode? Thanks for answers.MYMOTHER4 Nov 27

Nov 27 Into the Void Near the end of the epilogue mission "Into the Void" my game crashed/locked up. On continue campaign during next play session I'm unable to click the minimap or use some hotkeys like (a). It appears to have loaded/resumed right about where I left off before the crash. Not sure if there's an auto log generated that would assist finding the cause. May be related to Nvidia optimization settings. Was a bit too much for my old gtx 560ti and I had toned them down in game but didn't restart cause I was too immersed in the mission. Otherwise, I love this expansion. Thank you so much!zAneTsu2 Nov 27

Nov 26 Sound issue When I launch starcraft it causes my entire computers audio to become distorted. Like its coming through a fish-tank. Its exactly the same thing that happens when I am getting a skype call, all the audio becomes distant and background while the call is ringing. Then once I pick up or decline the audio goes back to normal. But with starcraft its just as soon as I launch the game, the game's audio, and my computer, is distorted. Not sure if I am missing something in the settings. Running Windows 8.1smurf0 Nov 26
Nov 26 Help with computer lag when playing So ive been playing star craft off and on casually since Star craft 1 the first installment and all the way till now, in the last year ive upgraded my computer. So here is my issue, When im in game i get really low frames, be it 1vs1, AI or other players, or Co-op after a certain amount of units are on the field. I've defragged, Disk clean up, and ran my anti-virus and malware fighter, cleared Cache's and stopped running programs in the background and only having Curse Voice, and star craft open. Still my frame rate will drop to about 10 or less frames, and in some games all the way down to 3 frames a second, I've also changed settings from ultra down to medium and then low, still same results. My friend has only one version better graphics card then me but he gets 40 frames a second stably through out everything. My PC spec's are Motherboard: Gigabyte 970A-DS3P Processor: AMD FX(tm)-8320 Eight-core Processor Ram: Kingston HyperX FURY 1866MHz DDR3 32GB Graphic's Card: Nvidia GeFroce GTX 960 2gb ram OS: Windows 10 Home Hard Drive: 2TB Toshiba If anyone has any idea's that would help me run my game better so i can improve as a player that would be great.Ashiera0 Nov 26

Nov 26 No sound in-game! Hi guys. I just bought the trilogy digital deluxe edition yesterday and spent all day trying to figure out why I have no sound in the game. I dont have an issue with sound anywhere else including with other games but I have no sound in app or the game itself. I looked everywhere and messed with the sound settings, even reinstalled the game and it still does it. I cant play this without sound so If I cant find a fix how do I go about getting a refund? Thanks for your help. Here are my specs: OS: Windows 7 Ultimate - 64 bit CPU: AMD FX-6300 Ram: 24 gb GPU: XFX Radeon RX 480 8GB 750 w psuWrecklessD1 Nov 26

Nov 25 Language of the game Why does the promotional screen have news in Korean? Even the rating warning msg is in Korean. I downloaded and installed the English version of the game and yet it still shows Korean. Why? This is really stupid. Once I change the region, shouldn't it only show the language that I have set it for? Diablo 3 and other games do not have this issue. Furthermore, Why can't I select what screen to display the game? For all the other games (Overwatch, Diablo 3, HOS), I could change the game to windowed and move it along and make full screen to play it on the specific monitor I want. But SC2? No you can't. It just brings the game to the primary monitor. What the hack?IILILITHII0 Nov 25
Nov 25 3440x1440 support for single player campaign? Hey guys, Finally got around to picking up the last part of the campaign, and after installing and starting it seems 3440x1440 on my Predator monitor isn't supported? A quick search found a couple of old posts saying it wasn't supported, is this still the case, or is there a fix floating around somewhere? I have no interest in online play, pvp or otherwise, and if able would like to finish out the last part of the story in the best resolution possible. Thanks. :)Zurt0 Nov 25
Nov 25 Nova Covert Ops Hotkey Bindings Hey Everyone, I use a non-QWERTY keyboard (Dvorak) and a non standard key binding layout (TheCore). Normally this doesn't pose any issues, but I can't find the binding for Nova's new abilities in Covert Ops anywhere. I even opened the key binding file to look, which is what I had to do for some abilities in co-op. I didn't see it there either. Does anyone know how I can rebind Nova's abilities like "Break Neck"? They're basically useless where they are now.DuMaiKe5 Nov 25
Nov 25 Attempting to Reconnect does not reconnect Attempting to reconnect screen does not actually attempt to reconnect, it straight up drops the user in certain cases. I have seen this screen across multiple games, not once has it ever actually reconnected me. The only option is to hit the Surrender button. However, for my opponents, they are always given 40 seconds. I am never given 40 seconds to reconnect.Merakai11 Nov 25

Nov 25 Issue with trying to Run as Admin I've been trying to get Starcraft 2 to run with administrative privileges, but I'm running into a problem. I went into the following folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\Starcraft II\Versions\Base48258 From there, I tried changing the properties of the SC2.exe file so it runs as an administrator. Unfortunately, when I press Play in the client, it gives me an Error 5:740, saying "An error occurred starting Starcraft II. Please try again." This sounds fishy. Any ideas?darkdill0 Nov 25

Nov 24 Wings of Liberty disappeared! Hi! I have been playing Starcraft 2 Wings of Liberty - Standard Edition (WOL) and Heart of Swarm since last year. I first installed Wings of liberty back in July 2015, when I received the pack, and Heart of the swarm about 5 months later. About 2 months back, I went back to playing Wings of Liberty again from the start, but the system asked me to buy WOL after the 4th mission. It also does not allow me to play multiplayer game. I tried entering the WOL Key I had used originally, but it says the key is already entered in the Blizzard code. I am stuck and not able to continue. (Weird- I can only play 1vAI and training matches) Can you please assist in enabling WOL on my account again. Let me know if you need any info. Help! I sincerely need your support. Thanks! -LegoBoy 4/8/2016LegoBoy4 Nov 24

Nov 24 Game keeps randomly freezing. Have to ctrl-alt-delete to fix So i haven't played SC2 much since HOTS came out and i just yesterday bought LOTV since its on sale for black friday and now im having this random freezing issue. It first started where the game would crash and say "application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware", so i updated the nvidia graphics driver and now the game just randomly freezes but VERY often. To fix it i have to ctrl-alt-delete out of the game, then just fire it back up from the task bar and voila it's magically working again. However it wont last long, sometimes it will go a few minutes before doing it again, sometimes as quick as 10 seconds. I haven't tried multiplayer yet since im currently doing the LOTV campaign but ive noticed this doesn't happen during any cutscene, only during actual gameplay. Does anyone have a fix for this or know whats going on? Specs: i7-3770k NVIDIA 460GTX 16GB DDR3 Windows 10 Pro with a fresh installJohnnyV0 Nov 24
Nov 24 Core out of memory (new details) I know this is a pretty long withstanding issue since HotS came out, but with LotV there's been a few more pieces of information in the error log. Previously it just said "Core: out of memory" with the same generic error code, but now there's a few more pieces of information in the latest crash: "The instruction 0x581f5f62 referenced memory at (some invalid mem) ..." The instruction specified might offer some insight on why / how the error is produced. Hopefully we'll get this fixed eventually. Some basic context- happens after 1v1 laddering for an extended period of time.XiaoXiao2 Nov 24

Nov 24 The game says I used cheats Hey guys! Two days ago I was playing WoL campaing without any issues. Yesterday I bought HotS and LotV from the store and I logged in to continue the campaign but right when I started it, the game said that the achievements are disabled because of cheat using. Any idea what might have cause this? I never used any cheat code in this game.Skalh0 Nov 24
Nov 24 Flashing Screen I am currently running a win7-32bit w/ nvidia 7600GT graphics. I haven't played in a month or so. I signed in & got the update.

The loading screen for the game itself doesn't, but everything from the login thru into a game itself is constantly blinking... I have tried updating drivers for video card & rolling them back to other versions... nothing helps. No other games seem to have this problem. Any ideas?Christo15 Nov 24

Nov 23 Game crash The game will crash at seemingly random intervals, doesn't matter what mode I'm playing. The game will freeze while all audio continues playing in the background. The game screen will also look torn, as if it had been cut and then glued back together but miss-aligned. Then the screen will go black. If Alt+tab is attempted desktop will be displayed on screen but the SC2 cursor will still be visible and no interaction with other windows will be possible (I.e: clicking does nothing).

Nov 23 Invisible mouse pointer My mouse pointer is invisible but I can know where it is when I roll over a block . I cannot play any games because I can't precisely select anything. I have uninstalled and reinstalled "Swarm" twice without fixing it. Have restored computer to a date when pointer was visible. Have changed resolution and deleted pointer trails. This is the only game I play and would purchase "Legacy" if I thought I could overcome the invisible pointer; but I don't want to waste my money on a game that may not work. I don't know how to fix this...JayGee1 Nov 23
Nov 23 Question regarding CPU vs Graphics Card I'm currently using a Core i3 CPU with only 4 GB of RAM, but have an AMD Radeon R7 200 series graphics card. I've been using very low graphics settings for a while to try and free up some FPS, but if my processor is bad, does it really matter? My computer is over 5 years old, so yes I'm planning to eventually replace it. It's just a matter of money.darkdill1 Nov 23
Nov 23 Blizzard please, Increase publishable capacity Hi, I`m making the mod and map which depend on the mod. I`m interested in changing texture in model. So my mod`s volume becomes 110mb over and will be more heavy volume. And that mod will be not able to publish maybe, if the mod`s volume is 320mb over. Therefore I suggest to increase account`s publishable capacity. I wanna have more publishable capacity about 1gb to make exciting map.Casena0 Nov 23

Nov 22 Surrender forced after finishing Coop mission Play a Coop mission. Successfully completed, and after the final message comes saying that the mission was completed, I get a "Surrender" box in the middle of the screen. I'm forced to click it or I am locked up and nothing happens. No scores reported, and I'm not getting credit. Happens for any hero I play, and has been happening for the past week or so. Game play is no problem at all. Just kills the session when it goes to report the score. Very frustrating.NomAnor0 Nov 22
Nov 22 Authentication Key I got the game 5 years ago when it came out. Since then I have forgotten my battlenet account and had to create a new one recently.

When I authenticate on battlenet it says that the code has been used, yes, yes it has... am I doomed to buying a new game?SnowBonez5 Nov 22
