Question about Blizzard Entertainment Diablo 2 for Windows

1 Answer

Diablo 2 not starting

I've just installed the game and the expansion, no problems, but when I try to start my screen goes black for about 2 seconds, and then I return to my desktop and the game ins't running, or at least
ctr+alt+del --> processes says so.

I've read one or two forums, but all they could say was that I had to reinstall the game, or wait 3 hours for the game to start.
I've tried reinstalling the game, but it didn't help, and I don't see waiting three hours as a "solution".

Thanks for the help already,
Yannick.

    I have a ATI HD4850 card with the latest XP drivers (9.3) installed.

    I can even run Crysis on it...

    I did however forget to mention that I looked on the CD for the directX version the game uses, being 7.0a

    I cannot install it though, because "DirectX does not install on current operating system."

    When I try to run the game in '98/ME compatibility it says that I did not insert the disc, even if I did...

    So I downloaded the 1.12 patch, which enables playing without a CD, but now, when I try to start the game, the screen goes black, and I hear the WIndows error sound.

    When I minimize the game, there's this window:


    I hope this information helps,

    Yannick.

    Nevermind, I've solved it myself now by running the game in directdraw(2d). It works fine now!

Re: "my screen goes black for about 2 seconds, and then I return to my desktop and the game ins't running"

Test the graphic setting.

Go to Run box under start button and type in DxDiag to test your graphic card and video software acceleration.

If Direct X do not work on some format, reinstall direct x (put update direct x in google).

If the problem is the video card , reinstall video card drivers.

If it is none of the above, then there may be an issue between Diablo 2 and you graphic card.

While attempting to install Diablo 2 LoD on my Windows 8.1 laptop, I keep getting this error message: Line # 855, Unrecoverable internal error 6fe22flb Help!


Sounds like you could be having a reading error with the disc, I recommend you try another CD if possible, if not you could download the torrent online, and use your own serial key (that way it isnt illegal, and you are able to play it without the CD)

When diablo 2 is loaded the game dose not go full


If you are not playing in windowed mode, Diablo II takes control of your screen and changes it's resolution down to 800x600 or 640x480. If you are in windowed mode, there are other things on the screen, so Diablo does not have control of your resolution. Diablo II can not scale up it's window to more than 800x600. If you want the 800x600 to take up more of your screen, then set your screen to a smaller resolution.

How to install dialo2


Dear i have send some information of installing by the diablo2.
if you can read it see it and install it and enjoy.
Thanks.

Nothing easier. Just insert the first Diablo 2 cd (the installation cd, it says so right on Diablo 2 cd cover). Autorun from Diablo 2 will start. It should look like the picture below:
install.jpg
(picture with autorun with setup from Diablo 2)
You will see as in the screenshot provided above, that there are only three installation options for Diablo 2. These are:
Single Player (this is a small install, meaning 500Mb small – it will install only what is necessary for the game to run off the hard drive),
Multiplayer (the so called medium installation size: 900 Mb . Choose this option and the setup will install everything to the hard disk, all without the cinematic. For this you will be asked for the cinematics disc), and
Full (full installation at only 1.5 Giga Bytes – Installs everything you need to play the game, however you will still be asked for the CD for authentication purposes ).
Choose whatever fits for you. Enjoy Diablo 2.

My screen goes black whenever i try to start starcraft.


Right click on the game icon, select properties and select the compatibility tab. From there check the "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" box and select Windows XP (Service Pack 2). It might be good to also check "Disable visual themes" and "Disable desktop composition" Hope it helps.

Diablo,sin of war,free,download for windows vista


If your trying to find a free download, there are none. Quite basically, any free download of games that have been released on a disk would be illegal to download for free. I would recommend simply going to Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart, ect. and just go buy the Diablo box set. It comes with all the Diablo games including the Diablo 2 expansion and strategy guides. It's like $20 or $25.

Hi hank z,
Yes, you need to buy Diablo II to play Diablo II LOD, this expansion set adds things to the actual game. Some of the things this expansion has is two new classes of characters, new objects, new weapons and the option to play the game with 800x600 resolution.
