Diablo 2 Patch 1.14a releases

diablo2-d2-logoYes that’s right, the title reads Diablo 2. Blizzard has released a new patch for Diablo 2 taking the classic to version 1.14a.

It’s been a long time coming, but today we’re releasing 1.14a for Diablo II.

This update focuses on system glitches introduced by modern operating systems. In related news, you can finally retire those old Mac PowerPCs. Included with the update is a shiny new installer for OSX.

We’ve also begun working to improve our cheat-detection and hack-prevention capabilities. There’s still work to be done, but we’re making improvements every day.

There is still a large Diablo II community around the world, and we thank you for continuing to play and slay with us. This journey starts by making Diablo II run on modern platforms, but it does not end there. See you in Sanctuary, adventurers.

The patch has not appeared on the manual download page yet but keep an eye out. You can join the Diablo 2 community in out D2 forums.

  1. is the ladder going to reset witht his patch??

  2. I’m surprised people still play that game if there is a new Patch for it.

  3. At this point I can’t handle going back to D2. I’d love to play it again at some point if Blizzard could do 3 things.

    Get it to run on newer hardware without third party wrappers.

    Increase the resolution of the game (upscaling is fine, I know the assets aren’t anywhere near 1080p.

    Fix the mouse control for modern systems/resolutions.

  4. This is cool. Curious how successful they will be.

  5. Awesome news. Can we have a share stash please 🙂

  6. so they gonna wipe out all duped items and runes ? 99% of all items are not legit anyways… why would they care now all years they didnt do shit before d3 ???

  7. "Wow, it's fucking nothing"

  8. I'd probably still be playing D2 fairly regularly if they added 2 things:1) A shared stash so I don't have to muck around with mules2) Pick up gold by walking over it.

  9. Wide screen patch puleeese!

  10. Finally… I can finally play the game. YES!!!

  11. this patch doesn’t work on xp. can’t play anymore

    • no kidding — "This update focuses on system glitches introduced by modern operating systems." — XP is NOT a modern operating system — XP is dead — has been for a long time — Vista came out over 9 years ago — then Win 7, then Win 8, then win 8.1 and now Win 10

      • A market share of 11,24% in February ain't something I'd call 'being dead' … Just sayin'

        • Internet Explorer 6 had a ridiculously high market share for ages — old people who didn't know better and businesses that had custom apps for it — but most savvy people just used it to download Firefox — just because something has a decent market share doesn't mean anything

    • lol then stop living in the 80s and update your Pc lmfao

  12. Waiting on the fend bug fix since like 2000

  13. Diablo 2 is a very good game, I play it every now and then. What I would like them to add is shared stash like others have mentioned and the /players command  or something similar to work in multiplayer games. I prefer singleplayer due to the /players command since you can farm 8 player games alone if you feel like it, I would play on Bnet if the same was possible there.

  14. The Patches are now available.

  15. Whoa, nice. Hopefully we will be able to play in Windows10 on full screen and alt-tab freely.

  16. the game is destroyed, the brightness is messed up and can be adjusted, the colours are fctup and cannot be adjusted either… they also add perspective to this game!, heavy nerds must be take over it, bb d2….
    the older people that playing this game they no need perspective! kids are playing new games.. why you don’t let it alone goddamn nerds

    • Also, 1.14a destroys saves (?). Had a folder with saves (the normal one, default d2) and now I lost it ! It was available until now (updated yesterday). Now, I can't mule items in single player 🙁

      • From patch notes: "First client run will migrate saved characters to avoid issues from Windows system admin changes". You can find it in directory "Users\<user name>\Saved Games\"

  17. Great patch! Very few in-game spam bots are back and annoying mercenary bugsAct I mercenary's namehttp://i645.photobucket.com/albums/uu173/diablo2lod/Lord%20of%20Destruction/Screenshots/06%20Miscellaneous/05%20Hirelings/H005.jpg~originalAct II mercenary's namehttp://i645.photobucket.com/albums/uu173/diablo2lod/Lord%20of%20Destruction/Screenshots/06%20Miscellaneous/05%20Hirelings/H004.jpg~original

  18. I can’t find this patch. I bought the game a couple of hours ago and downloaded it through Blizzard and it gave me version 1.12a, which of course still does not work on Windows 10. If they are releasing it today, when are they releasing it, because I don’t see it anywhere.

  19. I would definitely want to go back to D2 is they get back into patching it up like the old days.

  20. With the removal of glide, d2 literally looks like sh1t now compared to d3. Blizz going for the kill.

  21. I use an old win98 desktop to play diablo2 without any problem through 1.13d. Now with 1.14a no more support for OLD system can’t play anymore. Screw blizzard.

  22. I don’t download or get it, it uploads alone through net. I was so happy that new version is here. I thought that new of D2 will not be released.But in fact I had before version 1.12. It was also great, but in this new u can reset skills which is perfect.
    I don’t wanna be bad at here but the game is not working well.The map is not loading well, and the worst is that when I save game after play it don’t save! WTF! I played a lot and it don’t save!.In my older version it wasn’t mattering. Pls fix it….

  23. So where is actually the patch?
    I can’t find it. Is it already released? Or it will be released some day in 2020?


  24. Really angry with this patch! Windows 98 won’t work anymore and I can’t even open the single player.
