    Yeah, I know, it's an old game. However, I still like it and play it. So I just wanted to know if I could install the game on a new iMac and that it would run properly. I know the requirements are more then sufficient for the game, but I heard something about it not running for some reason...I might probably be wrong but I just wanted to know for sure. Also, my disk for the game is the very first version, 1.0. But with the patches I guess it doesn't really matter.

    i have played D2 on my intel iMac.
    it has been a while so forgive me if i am wrong.
    i think the only issue was choosing video to be software rendering over openGL. openGL doesnt work well for many people so choose software rendering.

    There's a bug which prevents OpenGL in the game from working in full-screen mode on Intel Macs. I think it works in windowed mode. Blizzard said they were going to fix that bug but I don't believe they have yet.

    No, you don't pay a monthly fee. You do pay for the game though, but it isn't expensive. I think the Battle Chest, which contains Diablo, Diablo II and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction (the expansion) is around 30$...might be lower, not sure. Also, there's still quite a lot of people playing the game.

    I just hope I can run it somehow...
