    Cool fix action for the original Starcraft to run it on Windows 7

    I haven't played the original Starcraft in a long time.. so after I installed it in Windows 7 the game showed up like the colors were all dithered, almost like 256. I tried all of the "compatibility mode" settings in Windows 7 but no go.

    I then tried this simple fix and it worked! Just keep the Windows 7 Monitor resolution window open before you start StarCraft and it will play perfectly. Pretty awesome fix..

    Another way is to use the Chaos launcher, which allows you to run it in a window.
