StarCraft Remastered gets its first round of bug fixes in latest patch

Well, you have to expect a few bugs in a game with this many Zerg in it, right?

StarCraft Remastered has been live for a week or so and it’s getting its first patch, patch 1.20.1, fixing some bugs that have afflicted the wildly popular remaster of a beloved classic.

Some of the issues were less bugs and more consequences of the remaster — the Zerg burrow holes being harder to see on the new, high-resolution dark tilesets springs to mind. But the options reverting to default bug is something I’ve seen in so many games I’m not surprised it happened in StarCraft Remastered. Similarly, having issues with the game not starting in HD isn’t a huge surprise. While graphical bugs were almost a certainty with a project like this, it’s good to see that fixed. I’m hoping they get the matchmaking known issue fixed sooner rather than later, because that’s the heart of StarCraft for a lot of players and it needs to be working properly.

For a complete list of changes and fixes, we have the patch notes reproduced below.
