    I know its an old game, but I still break out Diablo II LOD. I noticed that all my icons for Diablo have the curcle grey out symbol. Yet Star Craft 1 seems to boot.

    I could not find any definitive info on Dfiablo qwith Lion, just OSX which I already have the patch and launcer.

    Anyone else have Diablo and Lion issues? Am I just playing too old of a game?

    any game that uses any PowerPC code needs to use Rosetta (a processor emulator) in 10.4, 10.5, and 10.6 to run... this is done automatically in the background and hidden, so most people never knew this. There is NO Rosetta for 10.7... Apple has killed off support. Any App that uses PowerPC code at all will not work in Lion.

    That said... Starcraft and Diablo 2 Windows versions all run fine on Lion using Wineskin.... even if it is a bit harder to get it set up initially.

    Where is the bootleg Rosetta emulator when you need it? ;) Seems like that's going around. Firefox stopped supporting PPC in v5 (or was it v4?)
