    At the bottom, a small mod to fix the numbers 5 and 6 in the Diablo II game font.

    Am I the only one that was driven crazy by this issue? I remember I'd always wonder why shields would give 26% block chance and crap like that, until I realized I wasn't just seeing 6, I was also seeing 5's that looked like 6's...

    I don't remember I had any issue.
    Maybe I really thought they were a 6, and played all along like it was. I didn't care and didn't prevent me completing the game.
    I was more crazy by the forced 800*600 D:

    I went a whole run of the game (normal only) without seeing a single 5, so I was pretty perplexed...

    oh, that looks very nice in HD :D
    the UI is very small lol, but I used keyboard shortcut most of the time.

    800X600 is fine on the old aspect ratio monitors, these days on the wide screen monitors its painful :(

    I would still be playing Diablo II but it looks like crap on my monitor, so love that game. I hope Diablo III gets better after an expansion and some patches...

    I went into my GPU settings (CCC) and told it to scale while keeping the aspect ratio, so D2's not all squashed when I'm fullscreening it.

    The black bars I can just pretend don't exist...

    I hated it at first, but got used to it after a while. The lack of inventory space irked me more than the font, and back then there weren't any mods available.
