No. It is not a driver glitch. Diablo 2 is 17 year old game
1.Left click Diablo 2 shortcut> Properties> compatibility; then put on windows Xp (service pack 2), check Disable video composition APPLY
Then (this is the important part) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Go to Start>All programs>Diablo2>Video Test
after you run the video test it will work
2.Or Right click on the desktop, go to personalize and switch to the "Windows Classic" theme. This fixes the color for D2 as well
3.Or play it in windowed mode
Nope didn't work, even on the PC build for my little brother.
WIN7 - 64 bit
Core 2 Quad Q9300
XFX RX480 8gb edition RS
(2)2gb DDR2 Ram sticks
EVGA 600w PSU bronze
1 Sata HD
1 Sata dvd-cd rom drive
Does same thing on video test, doesn't display anything but goes blank black screen, then designates Direct3d as preferred settings. This is what happens if run it in Direct3d(1st picture)
Did everything you mentioned still pixelates(DirectDraw video, 2nd pic). Minus Window mode(CAN'T FIGURE OUT, HOW TO)).
Ok figured out how to go Window mode and it worked. no more pixel distortion problems.(If your run them like i do, External HD. right click .exe file, make shortcut)
Kinda sucks that you can't be in full screen mode though.
Here's the steps:
Right click your Diablo 2 shortcut, go to properties, and in the "Target:" field you should see something like
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe"
to the end of that (after the quotes and with a space between) so it looks like
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe" -w
I will install D2 on my second PC in next two days and try to force it working on win7 and AMD GPU in full screen. I love this game too
