How do you run two diablo2lod programs at once?Can anyone help me??
There is the d2gfx.dll that is needed to run two copies.
Ok. Install the game twice on your pc. You will need different cd keys for each so 4 total keys in all. You will have to rename the first d2 folder before you can install a second copy on your pc.
Then log both versions onto bnet to update the patches.
Then replace the old d2gfx.dll file in both d2 folders with the new one.
Then create a shortcut from the "Diablo II" icon in the first folder. Then create a shortcut from the "Game" icon in the second folder. The "Game" icon will be right below the "Diablo II" icon but it will not have a picture just a name.
Then to start up both copies just click on the first shortcut you created. Once that game is loaded minimize it then click on the indivisble icon to start up the second copy.
You can have two characters from the same account in a game at once but not in chat at the same time. So you will have to load one character up into a game. Then switch over and log on with the other character. If you have any questions or problems just ask.
Thanks for the help.I appreaciate it.Its working fine.
I didn't think it was possible. I thought you would get the message I always get when i accidently try to open it twice...
