    From the Diablo 2 Start Menu folder, run the video test program again and select Software Video Mode. Then try the game again.

    D2 can run in either 3d or 2d. 2d is better.

    Small amount of active members, ridiculously large amount of inactive users. We're a friendly community for games. Small is fun, and after the next patch releases we are gona organize fun games with different rules and things, like each member of the party makes a different kind of character, or all make the same. Fun stuff.

    Heh, we have lots of international users. Just as long as we understand what you're saying, it's ok. (In other words, don't communicate with us in your native language. ;) )

    Go to your Start Menu. When it's open, go in the Programs Folder and then into the Diablo 2 folder, then select the Video Test. When the Video Test menu appears, select the option that's the closest to the top; it should be called "Software" in Dutch, or something similiar.

    Most of our members are american and canadian, with some overseas memebers.

    If you end up on UsEast realm, I can help you get some starter gear, if you got the expansion as well.

    After you get cable, something we could try is Microsoft's NetMeeting. It allows someone else to see and work with your desktop. One of us could try to adjust the settings to get it to work for you.
