BETA: Diablo II - X3100 graphics update 1.12

25-Nov-2008

README for "Diablo II BETA-for-X3100 (Carbon)"

This is a beta release of Diablo II (Carbon) for Mac OS X, which should run correctly on machines with the Intel 965 / GMX 3100 chipset, under all versions of Leopard OS.

As you may know, support for 256-color display mode was removed from the X3100 drivers in mid 2008 and this made Diablo II incompatible. This beta has new code which addresses that conflict.

If you have a machine that is currently running Diablo II correctly, this build will have no additional value for you, and you should continue using your existing copy as-is.

Since this release is a beta edition and has not been made into a finalized patch, please note these issues and limitations.

a) do not replace your existing Diablo II (Carbon) with this application. Just drop this BETA application as-is into your Diablo II folder and run it instead of the original. You will need the original still in place when the patch ships.

b) the BETA version should be able to support single player mode, but due to its pre-release form will not sign on to battle.net, or be able to patch itself. LAN play has not been fully tested and may work correctly for you, but may have bugs - please keep in mind that this is beta software and we would appreciate any feedback that you have.

c) when the next Diablo II patch is released, you can delete the BETA version, then run the original version and it will be patched.

Comments, questions or bug reports should be directed to macsupport@blizzard.com.

Works great! Just a bug here and there but nothing I cant work around. Diablo 2 has always been one of my favorite games. My biggest problem is there is no bnet, but this patch is much appreciated.

Come on the beta patch has been out for almost a year now, and there hasn't been any updates for the problem or a new beta patch!!!
 
Mac Games Rating Mark S. (8/10/2009 - version 1.12)
Worked fine until I updated to 10.5.8. Now it quits every time I try to launch the application. I'll be glad when this will be fixed as I love this game!
 
Mac Games Rating Deos (7/14/2009 - version 1.12)
It works, but when switching from full-screen to windowed and back to full-screen (before it fully switches the display resolutions), it gave me the usual crash message (Application quit unexpectedly). Also, it seems like the expansion characters have different latencies than the normal characters, as well as high display lag while other applications are running (namely iTunes). Other than that, love it, and can't wait to get back on B.net.

Is there an email list or something that I can get on so i'll know when the next patch comes out?
