I’m NOT completely sure IF what I’m about to state makes complete sense; BUT:
As of Mojave, 10.14.0, OpenCL AND OpenGL WERE Deprecated. These continued in Deprecation Status in Catalina. I EXPECT that as of Big Sur 11.0.1 that NOT ONLY are these Deprecated BUT ALSO have been removed from Big Sur.
This means that as of 11.0.1, ANYTHING that requires OpenCL OR OpenGL WILL NO LONGER FUNCTION in Big Sur. Since, as of my last check, StarCraft:Remastered HEAVILY DEPENDS ON, (IF NOT REQUIRES), OpenGL to function that StarCraft:Remastered WILL NO LONGER FUNCTION under Big Sur.
Blizzard ‘MAY’ be working on a remedy via Metal Support, BUT, they ‘MAY NOT’. NO news on this has even been posted by ANY Blue Poster to clarify the situation. BUT, in their defense, Big Sur is possibly too new of a development by Apple for Blizzard to have an immediate solution, IF any solution at all.
Let’s think positively, and continue hope that Blizzard will remedy the situation and get SC:R working under Big Sur.
Also, as Blizzard has a tendency to Deprecate OS Support to the LATEST 3 MacOS Systems for running SC:R; there’s POSSIBLY good news for those STILL running High Sierra… That is, since the LATEST 3 MacOS Systems that remain utilizing OpenGL ARE High Sierra, Mojave, AND Catalina, IT IS QUITE POSSIBLE that High Sierra WILL NOT be Deprecated by Blizzard ANY TIME SOON.
