LOVE this Mod! But, what about Res?

It's been so many years that I've been waiting for something like this to take on Diablo 2 LOD.
There's so much awesome content, so many cool stuff, great balance and just amazing.
Thank you so much for working on this for us, and thanks for the community for supporting this!

So, since I never heard of this or any other mod before, I just heard about MultiRes when I heard about this mod. I saw the vids and it looks amazing!
Sad this is, I just arrived and MXL no longer supports MultiRes.
My question is, will there be any kind of support for high resolution than the default?
I really love the mod, it's making Diablo 2 feels so awesome, interesting and fun to play again... But can't argue that higher resolution makes everything feels so much better..

I heard in a (somewhat old) video that the devs will probably implement their own resolution in the mod, whats going on with that?

Btw, I am playing in SP and I had no problems what so ever with the installation with the help of the great guides here.

Thank you once again and have a great day :)

the problem with multires is that you got an insane advantage to everyone who does not use it. The game, as well as its AI was designed with 800x600 in mind. Thats why we can currently only dream of having a higher resolution

@RollsRoyce: Is there a way to increase AI's range to highest?

So why not just enable it in SP (Like it was until the recent update if I am not mistaken..)?
Also, it doesn't have to be at the highest resolution available. Can just add lightly higher resolution, just to make it feel better..

Higher res is said to come with sigma.

In case you're wondering when that is: no one knows.

To my understanding it could take years.. Why not just enable it for us SP players? It gives a whole different experience..

I don‘t even want to imagine how imba/cheaty it would be to use multires on a throwsin. I mean... she can hit anything 2 screens away already. But being able to see where some demons are just standing around is really just too much. No, it‘s good that multires is deactivated.

And imagine how far you could teleport...

Go play snej mod, which has a higher resolution build into the core. This game is at least balanced around this resolution. Or play a previous version of mxl where it was still possible to use multires.

Its not that the compatibility was disabled but more like it got broken when the new core was launched. Seeing how it is cheat-ish type tool, we were more than happy to not look into why it is no longer compatible and left it unsupported.

I can imagine how cheat-ish it could be with very high resolution, but isn't it possible(fairly easily) to adjust the mod fairness with like 1280x720 or something close to it?
As far as I see it, doing it can boost the gameplay experience by so much..

Any resolution over 800x600 would give a big advantage to the player bcz they will be able to see monsters before monsters can see the character hence enabling snipering them and moving on. For now the only way to get a bigger window is either play full screen or use glide video settings to stretch the window(this would decrease quality depending on how much u stretch the window). Additionally, multires is a thrird-party software so we cant do any changes to it without spending a considerable amount of time on it which we obviously do not want to.
