I am running StarCraft on virtual machine, and have it set to run on 640*480 and 256 colors, but when the game runs, its shrink to this tiny square. How can I get it to run in full screen? Thanks!

24" iMac + 13" MacBook Pro + 16GB White iPhone 3G = iMBroke!

Starcraft can only run in 640x480 as it was designed that way. The MacBook has a widescreen, so you're going to get borders.

I can run StarCraft fullscreen on my MacBook Pro, but I can only run Diablo II on Window Mode.

I have a macbook pro 17" and when I run in full screen I get black bars on the side. Do you have black bars on the side?

I haven't played that game in a long time but I thought there was a setting where you could choose your screen width and resolution.
