I finally got the STARCRACFT BATTLE CHESS and Im wondering if it's alright to install this baby on 3 computers?

Im not planning to go online but I dont want to install this on 10000000000 PCs. I just want to play on 3 different PCs (family desktop, my personal laptop and my sis's laptop and my brother's laptop to make it 4 PCs)

I cant find the info but is there an Anti-Piracy like limited to install or something?

PS: Am I qualified for StarCraft 2 Beta Test?

I'll post some pics after I download Ubuntu via torrent

Yeah, you no longer need the CD to play as long as you update to the latest patch. However, you still have 1 CD-key only so that means you will not be able to play LAN with your other computers that used the same key to install. You can bypass this by downloading a keygen or finding a random key online; they will work for single player and LAN but not on Battle.net.

To find out if you were accepted into the beta, just log-in here: https://us.battle.net/login/login.xml?ref=h...xml&app=bam

Starcraft is a really old game, there's no way in hell it has DRM.

So I can install it to 4 PCs?

I know I only allowed to use 1 key for online and Battle Net.

Thank you so much

lol you mean starcraft battle chest? well if want the multiple copies to plan LAN or w/e, then go to iccup.com and dl it there. it is the largest private server (and it's not illegal, its allowed by blizzard).

also, if you wanna be eligible for the starcraft 2 beta, go on battle.net and submit an entry. you might be randomly chosen.

EVERYONE can now use the original unaltered versions of StarCraft and WarCraft 3, even pirates. SC requires that you copy two big fat mpq files off the CDs into the game folder after applying the patch, read the patch log to see which ones. After that the only difference between the originals and pirateds is that you can't play on battle.net.
