    I installed Starcraft 2 on my M1 Mac. Initially it would not launch so I ran BattleNet as follows:
    • Windows 7 Compatibility Mode
    • Run as Administrator
    In the Starcraft 2 game settings:
    • Launch 32-bit client (instead of 64-bit)
    After this I could launch the game.
    The problem is that the in-game cursor can leave the game window or screen. This is a problem in Parallels because the window bar is at the top of the screen and the Mac launcher is at the bottom.
    This means that it is very difficult to scroll the game screen up and down (even in fullscreen mode). The mouse moves out of the game screen area into the Parallels Window bar above and triggers the Mac launcher below.
    This makes the game unplayable.
    If there was a way to capture the game cursor in the game screen that would resolve the issue.
