There's a lot of alpha sprites and stuff on this site that might be usable in stargus:

I remember when those graphics were all that we knew about the upcoming Starcraft.

For years I thought it would be cool to get my hands on that alpha version.

Still do.

Were those processed from screenshots?
I can't believe I hadn't thought of that before.
Well done.

Mostly from one screenshot, but a few of the tiles were from another screenshot which had a different color tint, so those few tiles had to be adjusted to sort of match the other screenshot, only it wasn't done perfectly, some tiles were also mirrored and maybe shouldn't have been. It wasn't a serious attempt. The purple cloudy stuff near the bottom ought to have transparent where there is black, because units were supposed to move under it rather than over it, but I'm not sure if that's possible in stargus:

There might also be a few more cloudy tiles and starfield tiles salvageable from the screenshots which are not represented in the tiles image, and some of the cloudy tiles can probably still be mirrored as well.

It's disappointing that the images were JPG's. If anyone has a better scan of the old warcraft 1 alpha shots than the ones posted here:
http://forums.stratagus.miniature-railw ... f=9&t=3371 , then perhaps those could be processed as well.

I have one Starcraft alpha screenshot which is not "jpegized":

This is the one from which I got the icons I posted in the other thread.
