    Bad Lag? Here is a simple tip

    I run into alot of people that complain about lag and often suggest this simple solution...

    1. find your diabloII folder and open the "video test".
    2. you can skip the test. This will give you the option to run in 2d or 3d mode.
    3. select 2d mode

    You will see a HUGE difference parcticularily while dueling. Where lag can be a major factor.

    Like i said, most of you probably already know this but i thought i would share it anyways.

    If only it'd work on internet lag (ping-time). :)

    Could be useful though, but nowadays I think quite a lot of people will have a decent graphic card which can display everything at 30 fps+ without any problem.

    Then again, the most popular video cards are GF4MXs and GF2MXs so, some people do lack a bit of graphical horsepower.

    Anyone with a true GeForce3 and up (excluding MX) or a Radeon 7000 and up shouldn't have to do that as these cards are more than adaquete enough to run DII.

    What would help a lot of people out is if they didn't have so much running in the background or if Sorcs wouldn't spam spells that monsters are immune to then ***** when you raise 1 skellie...

    *Normal Hell Baal Run*
    Some-Sorc casts Meteor 10 times on Lister
    UCF-Necro raises a Skellie Warrior

    Some-Sorc: OMG!?!! Lag!?!!!111111one

    or they cast like 7meteors before the monsters even appear when they can simply wait till they see the ball shoot from baal and then cast it

    That's obvious why they do it, because the burn dmg stacks which makes for quicker kills.

    lol, I have a geforce4 4800, but due to some glitch it wont let me run in 3D mode, so I run in 2D at 75fps, and this stays no matter whats happening, everyone knows that d2 runs at 25fps right and if theres anything over a few get redrawn right?

    Yeah, the same scene will be redrawn for you 3 times if locked at 75FPS as you say you are.
