Starcraft Remastered SUPER Slow in-game (Single Player)

Just wondering if anyone else had run into this issue before. I have a relatively high-end gaming computer but Starcraft Remastered is SUPER slow in game. The menu runs super smooth, no problems. But as soon as I get into a Single Player game it takes each worker 10 seconds to get to the mineral line.

It WAS running fine for a while and then it slowly degraded and now it just runs unplayably slowly as soon as I load up a game every time.

I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it (to my SSD). Lowered the video settings, and limited the FPS to 100. Vsync on/off no difference. Drivers are up-to-date (fully uninstalled and then reinstalled). I updated Windows 10. Changed power settings for high performance. My Memory is running at %50 capacity while the game is running 8/16GB ram. My video card isn’t overheating sitting at 61 degrees C, which is normal. Done a virus scan, no issues. Running it in Compatibility Mode as Windows 7 as Administrator. My computer should run Starcraft Remastered easily but for some reason it just slows down to a snail’s pace, even in non-HD graphics Single Player mode.

It’s a 144hz Monitor using HDMI refresh rate at 59hz and I’ve tried changing this to 50hz and 60hz but hasn’t had any effect. Updated the drivers for the monitor as well.

Scan and Repair of the game shows no file errors.

I also ran a Memory Diagnostic and found no issues.

sfc /scannow shows no issues.

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth showed no issues.

I thought it’d be the Monitor doing this but now I have absolutely no idea what could make it run this slowly. If anyone else has had this issue and fixed it, that’d be a big help to know how.

Might seem simple but make sure your Game Speed under options is set to the fastest setting. Also do not set/use FPS cap as it will cause mouse latency, FPS shouldn’t be an issue regardless. (hitting - or + on keyboard will change speed in singleplayer game as well)

Errr… for some secret, never to be known by anyone ever reason… I no longer require help for this thread…

I don’t know what happened but my game speed was turned WAY down. Either i missclicked it or… That’s actually so weird, it just seemed like the game started lagging more and more over time until I couldn’t play anymore.

… Spent like 3 days trying to fix everything that wasn’t broken and nearly ended up re-installing Windows 10… o_O Ty for the help and the advice… Godamn. Ty.

Glad to see you figured it out. Could your keyboard/hotkeys be having you accidentally hitting the - (minus) key?

What do you did men? i have the same problem… :frowning:

Grammar Correction:
“What do you mean? I have the same problem!”
Also, “men” and “mean” are NOT synonymous! Please spell clearly and properly!

Lastly, no name-calling like "spelling- or grammar-Na&i or any kind of insult that hints that the person who spells or gets their grammar wrong and attacks someone whose trying to help that person is in fact, intellectually insecure, as is stated sometimes, misery loves company, if someone can’t understand what you’re talking about, it’s clearly up to you to spell words correctly and use it in its proper context and definition as well as apply proper grammar as most educated people do… and SHOULD! I know I do on a consistent basis as I went to school to freaking learn, NOT to fool around and use school as a means of getting a date or find love, sure I made friends while I was in high school, but education was still my top priority and I was one of the few who graduated with an average diploma while everyone else was stuck with a “Special Education” diploma… which is not a good thing to have! Education and Knowledge is Power, not Prom and Relationships!
