EVERY TIME I TRY TO GO INTO A GAME, THE LOADING SCREEN FREEZES. OR IN A TP OR A WP I GET FROZEN.

try running it in windowed mode as well? and definitely list some stats of your machine..

also does this problem occur in single player? if not then it's prolly an internet issue

I had the same problem 3 times or so. Haven't reinstalled yet, I 'll wait till I have the prob again. after the crash my pc says that there is something wrong with my floppy ?! :s

It can't be my computer's fault since it 2GHZ 384 ram 64 mb video etc

Just try to reinstall maybe that fixes everything

reformat your comp and reinstall d2, if that doesnt help then you either need a new cd drive or new d2 cds :xgift:
 
ok here is what i did. i reinstalled the game. then added the bad file to the mpq sector.

but now i get another error message but it all seems to be coming from the diablo 2 disks and not my comp.

this error message looks like this.

================================

Diablo 2 Error

Assertion Failure
Location : D2CMP\SRC\CelCmp.cpp, line #1379
Expression : ValidCelContext(pCelContext)

ok

======================================

what happens is that after the Blizzard North Screen is done the screen then remains all black. But if i click around i cna hear my selecting differnet realms, single player , create player, then i hear the sound of paladin armor etc...

so the stuff is back there but i don't know wtf is going on.

so my best solution for right now is to go buy another Diablo 2 Classic and Diablo 2 Lod.

anyone know how much they are together?

if i can't find a solution i won't be able to play.
 
ok here is something new.

i fixed all error messages but now. when i click on b.net west.

pick my paladin. it just sits there not doing anything. ?? is it time for a new disks?

anyone know how to fix this?

I had similar problems running D2 LOD in SP under Win98 and (especially!) WinME. Updating my drivers solved the problem in the latter case, but left every other application unstable.

IMO, your best bet is to upgrade to WinXP - I have had ZERO problems with D2 LOD when using it.

If you dont get any error (or thoses realy long cd pause where the cd roms seem to just spin without anything to be done) during installation then I highly dougth the problem is your cd.

You could also try to clean the cdrom with those special cds. I had cdrom trouble before and the cdrom cleaner fix all of trouble (for me at least).

i was thinking of reformating my harddrive and getting WIN2000 Pro.

I heard thats the best one WIN came out with.

anyways. i did another install and how i get that one message i pointed out before.

i e-mailed blizard about this . but they haven't responded.

im thinking of buying the new disks, see if it works. If it does i'll keep them, if it doesn't i'll just return them.

i heard 15$ for D2C and D2LoD? Right or wrong?

it should be approx $20 USD.
your best option is to upgrade to XP.with SP1 you wont have stability problems.just be sure that you turned off all of XP's unused services and visual bloatness.
I'm having problems and errors too but i know that my lunatic 5 year old CD-ROM drive causing it.
you got assertation errors when game tries to read from CD and couldnt complete it because you clicked somewhere else like "enter chat" "join" "ladder" etc..
 
yea but the thing is ,

i never had any problems in .09 or .08 with the game. When i got my cable motem for xmas this all started.

so i'm thinking my disks are shot. My D2C is v1.0 and my D2Lod is v.07 so i think my D2C is busted or something. iono.
but before i reformat my sheite i'm going to buy them again. see what happens.

Format install again, if that doesn't work try with another Dia cd, maybe your CD is scratched and therefor you can't always load the video clip and play the music in the game?

except that xp is at least an order of magnitude more sketchy with the big brother bs...
and 2000 pro is loads better than 98

good luck trying to return a cd key cd. Most stores wont let you return online games because they don't want to deal with stolen cd key problems.

Get windows xp dude.
