    Yes. If you run it in software mode it's actually not too horrible, but forget about RAVE. Not sure about OpenGL or anything else. Also, I could not get onto Battle.net in Classic. Not sure if this is fixed in 10.0.2 or not, I haven't tried it.

    My advice: Save yourself the hassle and reboot into OS 9 to play D2. Hopefully Blizzard will Carbonize the thing at some point, but I am not holding my breath for that to happen any time soon.

    If you have a multi-processor G4 with any of the nVidia cards, then OS X classic is the way to go, OpenGL should be fine (I think). If you have a single processor and/or a different graphics card then boot in OS 9.
