    Diablo 2 lod crashing all the time

    Im running Diablo 2 Lod, 1.10 in windows xp, and ever since i wiped my computer clean and reinstalled everything Diablo 2 keeps crashing on battlenet, with and "unhandled exception error" or something like that.

    This was never a problem when i played 1.09
    but i remember back then i had a nice little program or cfg file or something that allowed me to play the game without diablo needing to read from the CD except when starting up the game, this speeded up my playing alot, alas i have not been able to find anything similar since the new 1.10 patch

    wondering if any of you have a confirmed link to something similar, or any other experience with frequent game crashing that might help me out.


    Im playing on a 2ghz hp laptop with a decent graphic card, and i played 1.09 just fine, so i think its either problems with reading the game cd or some driver failure, but what do i know?

    plz help :scratch: :scratch:

    Not sure if this helps but, I experience this problem when norton auto scans in the background or when i take the cd out. Hasn't happened in a while though, I try to keep the comp defraged and updated as much as possible.

    I don't have exactly what you're talking about but you can basically burn your CD onto your hard drive therefore not having to read from the CD at all. Granted, this takes away like 700 MBs of free space on your HD.

    I have a laptop with similar specs to yours. I might try loading DIILoD on there and see if similar things happen on a TCP/IP line (I can't log on to Bnet; it has no modem. Don't ask).

    if your not playing in window mode its hard to know what is causing it.... as when d2 crashes a pop up comes but u have to alt tab at the same time or it will completely freeze your comp... play in window mode and see if an error comes up... i sometimes get an d2 exception message or soemthing that causes the game to close.. go to shortcut properties and go to the part that linkes to the exe file and outside the " add a -w to make it play in a window

    I went onto the battl.net site and it has to do with your video drivers.
