My comp just ate diablo 2 expansion...

Just as the title implies, my computer has just had my copy of diablo 2 expansion for dinner, and it is now shattered into about 50 different pieces. I guess I will be stuck to playing classic for a while, so anyone who plays classic it would be nice if you left your account name so I could add you to my friends list. Oh by the way my account name is fccgibby09. Thanks.

You've just been having a miserable time with this game lately, haven't you?! Realm downs, exploding cds ... you have my sympathy. :p

Anyway, if you're looking for some other Classic players to hook up with, check out the Classic Forum. Good luck!

this is actually known to happen. i think you can contact blizzard and they will replace your cd (i think it costs you 10 bucks). also i would suggest you get nero or alcohol120 and play off that.

(basic rundown of what those programs do: they create a file image of your CD, and then they create a "virtual CD drive". they mount this image of your d2 CD onto the virtual drive, and your computer thinks you have your d2 disk is in it. i do this, and my CDs are safely tucked away in a box :D and it eliminates annoying spinning at bad times. also as far as im aware, this is not a hack, a cheat, or illegal in any way.)

We are trying to get more ppl to play classic by creating an expansion disk shortage. Getting the IP is the easy part. Then, we mounted a virtual image of a steakbone in place of the disk in Gibby's drive controller chip. Of course, u dont believe us, and that makes it the perfect crime. :thanks:

Now what is really interesting is getting feedback from the disk drive motor. It normally is just incomprehensible gibberish :scratch:. You know, like Alex the Lion, in Madagascar, when he makes an emergency 911 phone call, the operator hears grumbling roars, obviously. But that gave us an idea :idea:, and we developed a program to translate what is actually happening when the drive ate poor Gibby's disk, no more gibberish:

"Crunch...crunch...umm...crunch...crunch...ahh...urp...delicious, I wonder what it was...".:cheesy:

So there. Welcome to Classic Gibby.

3 years, still same old disc ... But then again I dont play 24/7 :uhhuh:
Well I'm on my THIRD set of discs. I'd love to be able to say I played them until they shattered but the unfortunate truth is ...

Set 1: Left sitting on chair. Sat on chair. Crunch. I R teh 1337!

Set 2: Lent to friend so he could reinstall after losing his own discs. He then promptly lost mine. The silly turd didn't even offer to buy me replacements, since I'm Mr. Dredd Moneybags, Esq.

Where I live, LoD costs 5€, so why pay $10=8€ when I can get the it plus an additional key for a little more than half as much in 1% of the time ? For me it's just a 20 minute detour after work :)

Meh, i get 3 x LoD C.D's for £10.

Buy it in bulk for when they crash.

And bef, i barely play at all anymore.

Exams. And me and flux are setting up a clan soonish anyway. But would be nice to play with some new peeps! :p

It doesnt explode, when i open the c.d drive it kinda flops out in like 4-5 pieces.


Really sucks.
