Diablo II - WinXP issue


OSNN One Post Wonder
I just had the urge to play Diablo II which i played (but never finished) on my older PC (win98) so after the process of finding the CDs and removing the dust from their covers i happily put the install disc into my cd-drive and up pops up the autorun menu.
i hit install and set the directory and all that mombo-jumbo it began installing. now thats done reboot time then *drums plz* i double click on the game and the game wont load i just get a black screen. i tried changing the compatibility of the game to both win98 and win95 but of no use.

Any ideas?

PS: i just got an idea of using bootmagic and install win98 on a partition or something (no clue yet how to do that) and install diablo there, would that probably help?
oh and i tried the game on my brothers pc also winxp but same issue

sorry for the long post thanks

Have you tried patching the game to the latest version? That might be worth a shot.

Installing 98 and running it on that would also do the trick but it's a very long way round!


Woah.. I'm still here?
