    Game won't start

    First off I'm new to Diablo 2, I used to dabble in Diablo one but today I decided to get the second. After I install the game, and try to open it, a black screen comes up and has a little white line like this "l" at the top left of the screen, and then it doesn't progress, any ideas?

    try running diablo in window mode. This little bar most often means there is some trouble with fullscreen mode.
    To run in window mode:
    -rightclick on diablo shortcut
    -chooose properties
    -add after a space -w to the field called target
    -close window/save changes
    -restart diablo

    Mostly likely video issue like they say, but you could also try installing the latest patch manually instead of waiting to pick it up off battlenet.

    It was just a matter of running it in 2d, thanks for all of the replys though!

    You just necroed a 4-year old thread, with a "useless" youtube video and with your first post.

    I wouldn't say it was "useless", I'd say it was useless. Also I can't even read the video description. I hate it when people can't be arsed to type properly :coffee:
