I'm new to Mac's, so I was surprised when I attempted to install Starcraft I got a message stating something along the lines of "Not available in Classic mode". Is there any way around this?

I found a couple Starcrafts, some for os X and some for os 9 and earlier. Check the requirements for where you got the game. If it's for classic os, which is what it sounds like, it won't work on Leopard. Tiger was the last os x that came with the classic environment.

Yeah, at the link above, scroll down until you see the link to the native installer for Mac OS X. It can install an OS X version of Starcraft for you using the original CD for OS 9. It can also install Broodwars for you in the same fashion.

I don't know how the installation will run under Leopard though. You still might need to patch the install afterwards but even then, no promises dude. :p

I just installed Leopard, and the OS X installer works. The game also installs perfectly.

As i said, the OS X native installer works and allows Starcraft to be installed on Leopard.
