As the title says, it's not working. The game is launched, but it just doesn't show up in the d2mr list. What could I do to possibly fix this? Running MXL trough D2SE, maybe that is the problem? But then again I had it woking with D2SE before. The thing is that my hard disk that had d2 on died, and I just re-installed in on a new one.

Help appreciated :thumb:

I tried, nothing changed. The same blank space. For some reason it's not detecting diablo 2.

Obviously you did something different when you re-installed D2. Maybe version problems, are you using 1.13c? And I know for a fact that some games/programs don't work propebly if you install them to Program Files -dir(s).

This is because d2 is not running with ddraw. Change it with the d2vidtest.exe

That shouldn't have anything to do with it..

D2MR works perfectly fine with all graphics modes, be it DDraw, D3D or Glide.

Not in my case, been running with other modes and with administrator mode on. Wouldn't show up. Changed it to ddraw, and everything was fine

At any rate running it as admin(I set it to always run as admin in the compatibility tab), ddraw changes nothing except resolution(I changed the resolution in Glide settings so that the game window isn't so small). Running 1.13c playing only on TSW. So I really have no idea on what the problem is and how to resolve it.
