Running 2 copies

I have 2 Diablo II's but I only have 1 Expansion set CD. I had 2 but the other one broke. I Still have 2 cd keys for the expansion. So what i am asking is how do make it that i can play without the cd?

edit

I have two computers so i dont mean running 2 copies on the same computer.
Thanks

Re: Running 2 copies

Wait for Blizzard to release Diablo II in their store. When it's available you'll be able to register the key, and then be able to download a copy of Diablo II whenever you like. Presumably it won't require a CD, as the already released SC and WC do not require a CD to play the game.

You can create an account and register your Blizzard games now, which will also enter you for a chance to be invited to a Blizzard beta. When Diablo II becomes available, you'll be able to play! :wink3:

Not for Diablo II currently or at least that's what I thought. Warcraft and Starcraft were patched so you could, but Diablo has not as far as I know. That's probably one of the reasons it hasn't been released yet in the Blizzard Store.

If that's a problem, I would just get a friend to help you or a trusted member from this forum. You could also just install Diablo, twice on one machine. The guide with this information is floating around this forum somewhere...

Well you can with one cd , as long as you have two (!) cd keys (2 exp and 2 classic).

Re: Running 2 copies

all you need is 1 CD (or even 0 CD), 2 sets of CD-Keys

regarding no CD, get some software to copy the real d2 CD into image file, then mount the image to a virtual CD-rom....

I am running 2 D2 windows with only 1 CD image in virtual rom + 2 sets of keys

Silly to go for warez and all that stuff.

Just make 2 Windows accounts, Switch User, and you can leave one guy in the game, and just go in and out with the other account.

Creating an image from an original cd and mounting it on a virtual drive to play has nothing to do with warez and afaik is legal in most cases.

To OP; I've recently put some work into a step-by-setp image creation/mounting guide for D2. I won't be posting it just yet since it's still unfinished and besides, I've yet to get a green light from the mods but I'm pretty sure they won't mind if I pm it to you. Give me a pm if you want it and I'll send it to you after making sure it's fine with the mods.

I was going to write the same thing, but take a close look at the post he was aiming at.

The poster he aims at Says he is Running 2(!) d2 windows at the same time with just the virtual cdrom.

This means loader....

Hrrrm, right you are.

My apologies to Morbid if that was what he was referring to :flowers:. I tend to skim-read when short on time(=always).
