D2 (And Median) on Windows 8.1?

Post by Superchang on Wed Jan 22, 2014 7:15 pm

Has anyone had any luck running Diablo 2 from D2SE (and the Median mod within it) on Windows 8.1?

I've set the compatibility to Win XP SP2, and tried everything - including uninstalling and reinstalling.

Any help appreciated.

Is the disk icon in d2se red or green?
Set compatibility mode winxp sp 3
Disable desktop composition is done by right click and then clicking properties, you'll see it there Smile
Does non d2se mxl work for you?

It worked. I'd set D2:LoD to compatibility, not D2SE. Once I did that, started just fine. Thanks dude.

One last question for ya - how do I get a larger resolution using the D2SE system and glide settings within? Seems like any configuration I chose, the maximum reso I'm getting is 1280x960 or such.

You'll need multires for a bigger res won't you? I'm no expert with multires Sad never used it
