can't play starcraft lan.

I am running starcraft in lan and everything works perfectly except lan with others. From what I read this is possible, I just havn't been able to figure out why It's not working on my own. We are using UDP on a non network switch. I use wicd. If that matters at all.

What version of wine are you using, mate?


Try installing version 1.3.19-2, here's a perl script that I just finished writing/testing that will download, install, and do everything for yall all easy-like.

#!/usr/bin/env perl
use warnings;

$result = `mkdir -p "2i/wine/"`;
print $result."\n";

chomp($arch = `uname -m`);
if ( $arch eq 'i686' )
{
    $repo = "community";
}
elsif ( $arch eq 'x86_64' )
{
    $repo = "multilib";
}
else
{
    die "Error[0]: could not determine system architecture!!\n";
}

    system("cd \"2i/wine/\" && wget http://arm.konnichi.com/2011/05/10/$repo/os/$arch/wine-1.3.19-2-$arch.pkg.tar.xz && sudo pacman -U wine-1.3.19-2-$arch.pkg.tar.xz && cd ../.. && rm -R -f \"2i\"");

save it as 'get-starcraft-wine.plx' and run it thusly

$ perl get-starcraft-wine.plx

Don't worry about arch, the script solves for whatever arch you are running.
