    now, i searched atleast 5-6 pages under 'Diablo Crash' because i didn't feel like asking the same **** thats been said before, but alas, i still couldn't find any help. i just got my video to work, and now when im in a game with other people, for some reason, it just crashes. if im alone in a game though it works fine. any ideas? solutions? thanks alot. and sorry if this has been asked before.:D

    edit: i was just in korea for a month and all the computers they have at their places run without using cd's (diablo included). can i do this on a mac?

    Well I can't speak from experience totally since I'm running PPC, and thus don't have any risk of incompatibility due to rosetta etc., but do make sure you've got everything updated on your computer, and from what I understand you're supposed to run diablo in Software rendering, though I assume you've already done that.

    I can help w/ the no CD thing, though. Assuming you purchased a copy of the game, just create a disc image of the CD using disk utility, and mount that disc image any time you want to play. It might go without saying but don't share this disc image file with anyone else, because at that point you're breaking the law.

    Set it to use software rendering instead of opengl; that fixes it for me.

    If you haven't already, install any patches you may be missing. Or do what
    Catfish_Man said.

    I was planning on firing up D2 later today, and I have a similar setup to you. I'll let you know how it works for me.
