Here's a change that enables you to install the free version from battle.net. If you are running ubuntu you will need to install ttf-mscorefonts-installer to get battle.net launcher to work properly.

I managed to install sc:bw 1.18.8 using wine 2.11 staging (32bit). It also seems to run flawlessly under this version (including battle.net). Maybe reflect this change in a new installscript.

Furthermore sc:bw is now freeware, so the script could go and download the installer from battle.net. Furthermore from version 1.18 on, any wine version before 1.9-staging doesn't work anymore to actually run the game.

After installation of Starcraft and Starcraft patch 1.15.2 (tried with and without the latter) the installation of `Starcraft BroadWar` fails with `wine` error `Internal errors - invalid paramters received`.

I was experiencing the same issue. Here's how I worked around it (confirmed working in 1.9.18):

1. Make sure that "Emulate a virtual desktop" is selected in your Wine settings for your Starcraft wine prefix
2. From the Wine configuration screen in POL, select "Command prompt"
3. When the virtual desktop opens with a command prompt, navigate to you Brood War CD by typing D: (replace D: with whichever drive letter your disc or image is mounted to)
4. enter "start setup.exe" at the prompt. The Starcraft: Brood War installer application should run.
5. Install Brood War as normal
6. Once the installer finishes running, I recommend launching the game and applying the most recent patch (1.16.1) by hitting the Multiplayer option at the main screen and allowing the Bnet updater to run and patch the game. You will now be able to play Starcraft and Starcraft: Brood War with no CD perfectly.
