Patch 1.23.5 Notes

i have the same problem x.x

I have played StarCraft since the beginning, and this is utterly pathetic. I really want the old StarCraft back. NOW with this “NEW” Patch(which was supposed to have absolutely nothing to do with me since I am on Windows) has completely broken my game play ability. I literally cannot play now b/c the FPS is below 100. The prior patch I had 200-300 FPS, now I cannot even play, this is really upsetting…

There should be a server for people who just want to play the Old StarCraft, remastered has been a failure.

Updated to…
Still crashing at the loading screen with OSX High Sierra and Radeon Pro 555X, except this time when booting it shows the non-Remastered loading screen instead of the starcraft remastered one. You can look at the report ID 0F2650A3-BCC2-48FC-AB5B-FB44632D53AD.

The FPS seems to be back to normal, for some reason (probably my GPU) I get better performance in SD mode, I will most likely be getting a new computer soon.

EDIT : Sorry for posting in such a manner, I was intoxicated and irate. -_-

This is the least professional screw ups I’ve seen in a long time. I wasn’t even playing online I was simply enjoying a campaign that I have played yearly since the launch of Starcraft and now my MUCH better computer can’t play the game because you guys have completely incompetent programmers…

The game STILL crashes on launch for Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6. Are you EVEN TESTING on this system!!! Because each time you post the patch you act like you’ve solved the problem and it doesn’t work. It’s as if you are making your fans do the bug testing for you… Please just revert to before 1.23.5 for mac users, I don’t want to play online even I just want to enjoy the campaign. I’ve been waiting WEEEKS for this fix and each time I see a patch I get excited an then disappointed by your COMPLETE UTTER INCOMPETENCE.

And don’t give me “Programming is hard” I’m a software developer myself and we actually have a QA department!


They need to let us pick the version that we run. This “mandatory and automatic update to the latest version” model of patching is ridiculous. I’m sick of having no control over software on my devices.

It’s a disappointment but with the latest patch is worst than before. Still unplayable, about 15 fps max.


There are stale games in join list from 2+ patches ago. Games that are coming up on 3 weeks (+?) old.


I still cannot play SC:R with this patch, even with updates. Game lags ~20 FPS… rediculous

Stale games are gone now.
But now games are phasing in and out of existence (gray then not gray), regardless of their actual status.
This was also a bug, from a few patches ago.

07/27/2020 and still unable to launch SCR on Windows 10, AMD Ryzen 7 2700X eight-core processor (all updates), DELL Inspiron 5676. I’ve tried ALL of the suggested trouble shooting. Patiently waiting to be able to play. Pls address this. SCII plays but I like SCR better.

Stale games are back

I use a PC with an AMD Ryzen 7 processor and the game won’t launch. AMD has a bug report tool that I suggest everyone with an AMD processor utilizes. Hopefully if Blizzard can’t figure it out then maybe AMD can. Note: The game plays on my laptop which has an intel processor. Personally I can’t stand playing games on a laptop. The game just will not launch on my PC.

Update 7/29/2020

We’ve just released Hotfix Patch which addresses the following:

  • Fixed a crash occurring while watching the cinematics on certain graphics cards.

  • Added graphics driver detection that prompts the player when they need to be updated. Note** For the best SCR experience, we highly encourage all players to make sure they are running the latest graphics drivers. For additional information please visit:

  • Fixed an issue with replays involving AI participants, however, replays from July 9th, 2019 - April 7th with AI participants, 2020 may not playback correctly.

Hi, After patch, my SC: BW Remastered crashes after 5 minutes, or if i join a game. The game exits with no error, and brings me back to desktop.

Do you need tech info on my device?

Yep, please send us an email at

How does that detection prompt work? Is there any particular command to run it?

Forcing to update the graphics drivers is not a good feature.I updated mine following the steps on and I’m still getting the same error now though I’ve installed whatever was available on Intel … But now I can’t play at all or even open the game. I had no complaints with my experience on SCR but now with this mandatory update I do…


Same here. It says "The installed version of your graphics driver is old and will prevent Starcraft: Remastered from running properly…Visit for information on how to upgrade your graphics driver.”

I have been playing for the past few months without any issue. Playing the original version not remastered and it says that… What is wrong??
