Diablo 2 in a higher resolution? Yes its true, and yes it rocks!
Posted by Henley on Jul 26th, 2009
I really do love me some Diablo 2, so much so 2-3 times a year I'll do a massive co-op runs with my mates, and have done so ever since its release. The problem is the game is old, and my pc is well... new. Because of our humanly ways to keep making advancements in the field of computing its getting quite difficult to come back to a game who's highest resolution is 800x600. As that size be tiny yo.
Thanks to the talented skills of a modder who goes by the name Sluggy you can now play Diablo 2 in any resolution that your pc can support! This is great news as no longer will my mouse slip out of the small window and open flash, no longer will my spells refuse to cast as I accidentally click my desktop instead! Finally. It comes at a cost though as you will not be able to participate in any Battle.net multiplayer stuff which is a shame I guess but in my opinion Diablo 2 is much better with close friends at a lan hyped up on coke (the drink you fools).

It is, for the most part, completed, but there are still a few issues that have not been worked out. The "patch" lets you select any resolution 640x480 or higher that is supported by your current display adapter/monitor. There are no other changes to the game other than this.
Anyways you can download the mod from your favourite modding website ever, in the mean time enjoy the awesomeness that is these fantastic screens.
