Blizzard Entertainment is proud to roll out patch 1.4.3 for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty players, with a special focus on the Macintosh platform where the update delivers a number of important bug fixes.
“StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty patch 1.4.3 is now live!”, Blizzard has announced. “This patch features several bug fixes, as well as balance changes for the protoss and terran races. Be sure to check out the full patch notes below to learn all about the latest changes.”
The General list of changes reveals that APM values displayed on the Leader Board are now calculated by counting every click and command that has been issued by the player. On the EPM side, values are now calculated by counting only actual commands issued by the player (Effective Actions Per Minute).
Finally, Zerg Larvae are now displayed in the unit panel of the Leader Board, these being just a few of the noteworthy changes affecting both Mac, and Windows customers.
On Mac OS X in particular, StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty 1.4.3 fixes an issue where the cursor would disappear when using the middle mouse button, as well as a problem that caused performance to drop significantly during large battles.
Players also reported an issue that was causing certain mod maps to crash after loading, and Blizz says this is also fixed in 1.4.3. Last, but not least, the Reduce Mouse Lag option now works properly on Macintosh hardware, according to the release notes.
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty 1.4.3 requires an Intel-based processor clocked at 2.6 GHz or higher, 2GB of RAM, 12 GB of hard disk space (for the base game and the patch), NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT or ATI Radeon HD X1600 1024 x 720 video card or better, and a broadband Internet connection.
