that would be the only way, otherwise 800x600 is the highest resolution, in fact before Xpac the highest resolution was only 640x480 (popular back when 14 or 15 inch monitors were the standard, lol).

I doubt that there is way to increase the resolution past 800x600, but I guess it's possible, since screens are getting bigger and wider by the day.

this is how i believe you do it ( it's been a while forgive me ) . On you shortcut that *should* be on the desktop.... right click it and select properties for that icon. There should be a target area that has your d2 directory etc..... all you do is add a space and " -w" after that target file and it should play your game in window mode.

Edit: i just checked this and what i stated is the correct method.

Is there any way to make it bigger than 800 x 600 pixels, on my desktop (1600 x 1200 or so) its teeny tiny Thanks.

Right click on its desktop icon and add -w in the "target" field with a space before that, so it contains something like

"C:\Program Files\Diablo\DIABLO II.exe" -w

with the quotes !!

The window will be of a fixed size, its contents being 800x600. If the window loses the input focus, it will minimize which is a little annoying.

Another useful parameter is -skiptobnet which will let the game skip the intros etc. and automatically present the Battle Net login prompt.

I tried the -w but the game does not come up in a window.

This is how you add the commands:
1. Enter Ms Dos console. (it's in your Accessories section on the start menu)
2. cd\blizzard\diablo ii (or wherever your diablo 2 folder is located)
3. edit d2.bat
When in editor, input this line;
start diablo ii.exe -w (or whatever your d2 is launched by)
4. save & exit Ms Dos console
5. in explorer, start the d2.bat file
