"Unrecoverable internal error 6f8e88ba" prevents Diablo 2 from running

Post by golloth on Sat Nov 29, 2014 8:26 pm

Hi folks,
I'm out of ideas here on how to fix this problem. I think I've tried everything. When I go to open Diablo 2 (through PlugY or not through PlugY, and with Median XL or not with Median XL installed) this error crashes the game before it even really starts. It's version 1.13C. I can run LoD pre 1.13C, and LoD 1.13D works. Of course I want to use 1.13C so that Median XL will run... therefore Blizzard won't help because their solution is to upgrade to 1.13D. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium and AMD Radeon HD 7570 graphics card.

Things I've tried, all resulting in the same error:
-Using the D2VidTst.exe to select 2D option
-Running with Glide3-to-OpenGL
-Right click Diablo II folder > Properties > Security tab > gave Full Control to all users
-Right click Diablo II shortcut and .exe > Compatibility > chose Run in compatibility mode for XP sp3, Run in 256 colors, Disable desktop composition, Run as admin
-Running D2 off of Blizzard's downloaded no-CD version of the game (then backdating to 1.13C), running D2 off of a CD, running D2 off of images created via Daemon Tools Lite.
-Prior to running patch, I reinstalled D2/LoD and then replaced all files in Diablo II directory with my friend's v1.13C files to try and simulate the patch

I think the problem starts when I upgraded to 1.13 C. Each time I try, that particular update deletes Game.exe in my Diablo II folder then complains when it's missing. Even though I replace it with a backup copy, I'm afraid that Game.exe being deleted is a symptom of the update not running properly. Maybe if there is a way to manually update D2 to 1.13C?

Any other ideas... please help!

Did you try to use D2SE it fixed one problem for me i couldn't get on realm and with D2SE when you install it it got all the core files of all the patches.How i downgraded from 1.13d to 1.13c.Someone can correct me if im wrong but im pretty sure the patch should detect game.exe but shouldn't overwrite it with a new one.
Only thing i can think of that would remove it are a virus program altho that is highly unlikely.

This disappering game.exe seems to be an issue with some antiviruses / blizzard's digital diablo installer. Try disabling AV and doing a clean install of D2 from the original 4xCD version and then updating to 1.13c

Disabling antivirus worked! Thanks much Smile Game.exe was no longer deleted. I was using Avast AV. I had done the Avast Shield Control option and turned off shields. However when I turned them back on, Game.exe was deleted, and even after copying it back into the D2 folder, I got the same error. Apparently Avast won't let me run D2... How dare it not be compatible with this 15 year old game Razz

Yeah avast is shit, tbh since you're on win7 you can get rid of that piece of crap and just get the MS security essentials. Free, good and updated daily.

This problem with most anti virus are that they don't recognize a file thus mark it as a virus aka game cracks etc.But it's funny that it read your .exe wrong im running avast.i ran kapasky/Nod 32/avg and never had that problem -_-.

We'll most of my stuff are Legit so if i ever get this problem i'll sue the living shyt out of avast xD
