    Graphic lag in ancients way

    I am a fan of farming Snapchip, but the big problem is that ancient's way lags the crap out of me (sorta like upper kurast and travincal). It is pretty clearly graphic lag... anyone ever encountered this problem? my last sorc died to a pack of minotaurs there, and i am pretty afraid of trying again.

    Have you tried switching your video mode from OpenGL to Software, or vise-versa? Or have you tried the D2 Glide wrapper?

    Star Menu -> All Programs -> Diablo 2 -> Video Test -> Run Test

    Once the video test is complete, you will most likely have 2 choices (Direct Draw, or Direct 3D). Choose Direct Draw, test (by playing) for a few hours.
    Run the Video Test again, and choose Direct 3D this time. Test it for a few hours in this mode also.

    Report back with your findings.
