Diablo 2 LOD @ high-resolution and with Nezeramontias

Recommended Posts

dlf    3

Have decided to play Diablo 2 LOD again, but I want to play at the resolution this monitor supports - 1680x1050 (and yes I know that's not full HD), was curious to know if I could also play @ that resolution with Nezeramontias.I'd also like to use PlugY if @ all possible as well.

Not without exe hacks as far as I'm aware, which can get you banned from battle.net. The highest resolution supported natively is 800x600.

I have no intention of playing battlenet. Also full hd is 1920x1080 isn't it? I have a 1680x1050 resolution screen which is at lest 720 isn't it? . . . . . . .

Indeed.

Tony needs a downvote.

Torchlight might be worth a look if you want something a little more recent :)

But Torchlight isn't Diablo 2.

Like I said, if he wants something more recent, it's in the right direction >.<

It's between 1080 and 720. The former is 1920x1080, the latter is 1280?720.

I have both Torchlights, but I want to play Diablo 2 LOD with Nezermontias (and PlugY) @ a resolution (right now) of 1680x1050.

Blizzard should update the original Diablo games to support higher resolutions and widescreen functionality. They could easily make money from it.

Agreed...I bought AOE II HD and am pretty happy with it, Blizzard should also do this. These kinds of games are perfect for the integrated graphics in laptops.

The most acceptable way I found to play Diablo 2: 800x600, a Glide Wrapper and ?GPU scaling / Keep Aspect Ratio? enabled in the Catalyst Control Center.

I'd go Path of Exile... Torchlight is Toony.

You can't without hacking the executable. Just like someone has mentioned, it can get you banned.

Add widescreen support to Warcraft 3 while they are at it :D.

The programmers and designers of Diablo 1 & 2 are not with Blizzard anymore (which also explains the abysmal game design of Diablo 3), so you're not going to see any code fixes from them---unless they were to open source the game code as some other vendors have done.

Maybe people should launch a campaign for that?

Then would it be possible for someone to mod the mod (that gives Diablo 2 LOD) that gives widescreen to be supported in 1.0 (1.1?)?

Losing (some of) the programmers and designers doesn't suddenly make the source code a black box of unknowns.

Diablo 2 last got a patch in October 2011, could still be patched again, and the Battle.net ladder is still being reset.
