Apologies if this is off topic here, but I thought folks might be interested in this. I've been trying to run several old Blizzard games on Mac OS 9.2 with mixed results:
1) Warcraft 2: Battle.net Edition: No problems. Installs, connects to B.net, patches itself and runs perfectly.
2) Diablo 2 + expansion: Installs, connects to B.net, patches itself, but then cannot reconnect. Something to do with being unable to verify the client version. The single player game runs fine.
3) StarCraft + expansion: Installs but cannot connect to B.net at all. Same error as Diablo 2. No problems with (unpatched) single player game.
4) Warcraft 3 + expansion: Installs, connects to B.net, patches itself, but the wrong executable is then installed for the expansion (Frozen Throne). It appears to be the OS X version. This means the expansion can no longer be run after the update. No problems with basic WC3 (Reign of Chaos).
There might be something wrong with my setup but I doubt it. I assume Blizzard just doesn't care about the Classic OS anymore.
