Developed by Blizzard following the sucessful WarCraft series, Starcraft is undoubtably one of the most innovative and popular RTS games to hit the market. Introducing for the first time three races all completly unique yet perfectly balanced, this made for some fantastic gameplay with zergling rushes, to siege tank massacres. With starcraft having such a cult following there are bountiful mods available from simplistic character changes to new scenarios, and challenges to face. The fact that Starcraft has been game of the year sums up just how good this game is, so crank it up if you are not already playing it!

Description

A Homeworld Skin for the common Battle.Net chat interface. Currently it does not support pop-up boxes, the game outside of Battle.Net or statistic screens, but everything else is pretty much in working order. No installation necessary, and the Starcraft install will not be affected. I actually created this a year or two ago, but since it doesn't look like I'll ever be resuming work on it, I'm releasing it in case anyone wants a slightly cleaner look to the interface, or is just a fan of Homeworld. Future iterations, should there be any, will provide a complete skin of all facets of the interface, not limited to in-game command boxes. Note - This is a self-loading .exe. Due to the way the program works, some anti viruses will label it as a trojan because of the way the program handles Starcraft memory. All you need to do to use it is double click the .exe and direct it to your Starcraft .exe.


Update 1 - I fixed an issue with the header that surrounds the Blizzard advertisements. I don't know if the original .exe I uploaded was corrupted or whether a patch change caused this, but it should look much better now.

Update 2- I rebuilt the mod using the Starcraft injector bundled with DatEdit 1.5, making it compatible with Windows 7 and patch 1.61.1. Not tested on x64 systems, but it should work.
