    Diablo 2 LOD CD-Key

    My friend has diablo2 and LOD and we would like to play via battle.net with eachother. Is it possible if I buy myself own copy of LOD and install it over my friends Diablo2 or do I need to buy them both? Thanks!

    You have to have two seperate copies (or CD keys) of each title - Diablo II and LoD

    You will need both games, as the installing requires 2 cd keys, one Classic and one LOD.

    another reason you can't install over your friends D2 is that only one cd key set can be in use at one time on a comp, if your friend is logged in and you try to log on with his, you get a cd key is in use by message.

    Best bet is to buy the battle chest and install yours on your comp, and have his copy on his comp.

    This is not entirely correct or more the point doesn’t read to well.

    You can install as many CD key’s as you wish onto a computer as long as they are installed on separate Drives or separate Drive Partitions. However without a third party program you can’t RUN multiple copies on one computer.

    Now B.net looks at your CD key Set to see if any of it is currently in use when you log on. If you Friend is logged on B.net has both his Classic key and his LOD key as logged on so when you try to log on you will get a message that the CD key is in use by “your friend†and will prevent you from logging on.

    So as AE suggests get the Battle Chest so you have both games then the 2 of you can play all you wish.
