Micro stutter while moving

Hello. I came back to playing this game after long long time. Back then I was using 85hz crt monitor. Now I use 144hz BenQ XL2430T. I installed median xl 2017 with plugy, glide and D2SE.I have a problem no matter what settings I use either full screen, windowed, scaled resolution, locked or not fps, compatibility settings etc... each time I move and look on some other character or monster on screen while moving he stutter horribly. I don't really know how to describe it.. It is most apparent while moving left or right... Kashya for example when I move around her it looks like 5 or more sprites of her at the same time each in a little different place and little more or less transparent. It drives me crazy. Is this common issue from horrible low frame rate cap (25) and I just need to get used to it? Or is something wrong on my side? I noticed that faster I move it stutter more.

Try hosting a TCP/IP game, do you get stutters there?

First, try the most obvious thing. Update your video drivers or re-install them.

I tried both TCP/IP and drivers reinstall, nvidia control panel settings, I experimented with frame rates, different vsync settings, monitor and game hz rates, directdraw, 3d, glide... this is wast of time i think.. I would need to see game running on some other pc to be certain but I would say it is just very low framerate game is designed around. Other people must be used to it.

can you try using another video mode for D2? Direct Draw for example?

He said he tried all three, but did you you try -nosound? Performance tends to be better with it. Although your kashya example makes it unlikely.

Yes to all. I don't think it is about performance. TCP/IP play get me above 1k fps whe they are uncapped. I need to buy a laptop soon so I will check how game runs on it.
