Instead of continuing a long thread, I thought I'd make a fresh one. <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Jedsia: Be careful hacking those, you can damage your video card. Blizzard has released 1.03c patch that should fix the ATI issues. I'd try that now, before going in and taking any chances with ResEdit. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE> I had hacked the preference file in August. (Purchased D2 in July, started playing piecemeal in September ) From what I gather in reading posts on Blizzard's web site, MacWorld, MacCentral, MacGamersLedge, and perhaps others, this patch works if ATI updates their drivers ... and people say that's unlikely since ATI is concentrating on getting Radeon out to market. In any event, I was very disappointed when after downloading the patch and choosing to rescan my monitor, D2 reverted to Software Mode. I'm glad I had a copy of the preference file with RAVE Mode. ------------------ That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.
