so I was googling one day and stumbled upon this:
http://gamerlimit.com/2009/08/diablo-2- ... ced-bread/
http://www.moddb.com/games/diablo-2/dow ... ersion-102


Hmm, that 800x1600 res is just up my alley...

Now, this mod aparently only works with 1.12a D2 patch and even then it's a little iffy, but maybe...*takes out hax toolbox*
Anyhoo, what's the official stand on this kind of resolution plugin ? allowed ?

another solution for changing resolutions could be Dav92's expres plugin

Anyone ever decide if this is kosher for playing on the realm with? Couldn't you just namelock a boss and exploit the shit out of their AI with that resolution?

It's akin to maphack, seeing as the AI bugs out if you target them beyond a certain range, since the game was never designed for anything over 800x600.

read on the site that you manually have to change all the buttons and shit if you use the expres, is that a lot of work or hard?

I tried it once, buttons, stats and skill tree were a mess, and game crashed when I tried to open stash.
Took it off the next second :/ cba to fix it

well, if you attack monsters that are far away and you wouldnt see normal start attacking you after you first attacked them..

well, for modders Dav92's Plugin is the best way to go for high resolutions...
but monster AI needs to be changed, to avoid exploiting the huge advantage that the higher resolution gives to ranged characters, Seltsamuel did this somehow in his Snej mod (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3602123/___.gif)...

that program that you used for MXL (multires?) doesnt change that too, so you are exploiting that too...
