Just so no one is disappointed after going to the effort, here's the feature list for stargus.

Features

* All of the Terran units have been added although not all of the features work yet
* All of the Zerg units have been added although not all of the features work yet
* Some of the Protoss units have been added
* Sounds and music work
* In-game menus are mostly finished
* More complex Computer AI
* Tilesets flags have been added although not all of the flags work yet

* Campaigns do not work
* Videos do not work
* Zerg larva + creep have not been added
* Most of Protoss units have not been added
* Protoss Shields have not been added
* Spells do not work

* In-game console needs some work (unit portraits, etc)
I think they may have forgotten to update that with the biannual update this summer, but it's still not complete.

Edit (2010/3/8): After consultation with the original poster of this thread, i have decided to post the instructions in the wiki. This is to reflect my desire to keep the useful information he shared, while respecting his weariness of the thankless hordes of children and other immature individuals hounding him for help with getting it to work. Here are the instructions. I am not supporting this; don't contact me to ask for help. Don't contact the original poster to ask for help. You can see this as a DIY project if you like.

Good luck, have fun!

I hope he really means the video since stargus is not getting updates pretty soon... I've been watching it for a while now and development is pretty slow...

Keep an eye on the news at the upstream project site. There was one release this summer and a bunch in 2007. I'm not sure how many commits are going into the source tree, but i think not many.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/stargus/

It's hard to get people to rally around a dev project that will always require users to extract their commercially-purchased content to be able to play.

Gotta give credit to the OP for going to the effort to make a video and prepare installation instructions for a game he's never played. Hehe psst...you gotta build an extractor before you can harvest vespene.
