I'm thinking about installing XP mode for some old games (namely starcraft) but before I take the time, does anybody know if its possible to apply any kind of linear pixel scaling to enlarge the game graphics without LCD blur?

I know starcraft in particular works fine in 7, but I want to run it in some kind of VM that will allow me to scale the graphics up without making it blurry.

The XP mode in Win 7 does not support 3d gaming.

They released a program to change Diablo 2 resolutions. Maybe they did the same for Starcraft. Check google. You may be able to run Starcraft at your native resolution.

Somebody released a similar thing for starcraft, but since it modifies the game executable you can't play it multiplayer, which is pretty much all starcraft is good for these days.
