At first I thought this is caused by GDI DirectDraw renderer, but changing to opengl did not help. Also, it is just the same when you configure Diablo to use Direct3D renderer. Does anybody has any idea where can I look for the source of this problem? Warming up the CPU just for fun isn't that cool after all ;) Cheers.
Run starcraft in its own X session at 640x480 and 8 bit color and you
will get better performance.
