Diablo 2 Crashes as I join games since screen res change

I just installed the game last night had it working fine. Today I went into settings while in game and just clicked on the video resolution 800x600 I think was defaulted, as soon as i did i crashed and now i can’t log into a game just an instant crash.

I uninstalled the game three times and it sill does the same thing.

that means that your resolution was saved. i am however unable to find where. you should be able to reduce it by running it in software mode.

Hello, I’m having the same problem, how do you run in software more?

go into your registry to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Blizzard Entertainment\Diablo II\VideoConfig and change render from 1 to 0.

i just opened the registry editor found when pressing windows button and search for it. then open HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT/ and in there there is a “RESOLUTION” rightclick and press “modify” and change from 0 to 1

seems to be different for everyone but this worked for me with windows 10, 2021-04-05
