The day we've all been waiting for is here! StarCraft II has launched, and most of you are probobly too busy playing to even read this post. However, we're here for the unlucky souls who bought the game only to find they can't get it to run. We've compiled a list of known issues that we will update throughout the day with known solutions. If you guys have any problems, feel free to leave them in the comments and we'll try to help out!
Q – On my Nvidia card during cutscenes, framerates drop into the single digits.
Q – Compatibility modes don't work
Known issue –
Certain screens make your hardware work pretty hard
Screens that are light on detail may make your system overheat if cooling is overall insufficient.

A temporary workaround is to go to your Documents\StarCraft II Beta\variables.txt file and add these lines:
Q – I see nothing but a black screen!
There are also reports where some security programs like Comodo firewall can cause the game to black screen
Q – Starcraft keeps crashing and I've got funny lines on my screen. How can this be with my l33t overclocked rig?!?
Q - I get a message telling me that "There is a temporary out age of Battle.net. Please try again later."
