Do you really prefer squished image over regular square window?


Yes. Until I get used to it I guess.

Edit: Getting used to it. I'd much rather have 60FPS and not have my eyes hurt after 20 minutes than widescreen, after all.

It's not a huge problem to close out the error when it pops up after closing the game, but would be nice if it didn't pop up.


Set compatibility mode to Windows 7 or XP and run it with -dxnocompatmodefix option.

Honestly this was the only aspect of d2dx i dont liked but then my game started to lag and it also froze one time, i just gave up on d2dx and started using cnc ddraw again, all of a sudden i my problems got fixed and i dont have that bad square window with black bars anymore.

Is there anyway to turn off the crazy lighting change that comes with 3dfx glide? I really like the 60fps but do not like the way the lighting is super glow-y with the glide engine.

How to make the game less blurry? I did as the 1st post on page 1. It is running at 60fps alright. But the visual quality gets more blurry compared to when this D2DX is not used. The character models look not as sharp.

I did not do anything else other than pasting glid3d.dll, then adding args to the game shorcut. My screen resolution is 1080p.

Windowscaling worked this way for me...download the custom D2DX build that supports window scaling by floating-point number. Inside the original d2dx.zip file u will find d2dx-defaults.cfg. Exctract this to your D2 folder and rename it to d2dx.cfg. Edit the following line for the size of the Window (the scale# changes with desktop resolution)
>On 4k resolution(3840x2160):
[window]
scale=2.4 # range 1-3, an integer scale factor for the window

it works also with 2.5-2.6, increasing the windowsize every 0.1

>Command line options looks like this "C:\Games\Diablo II\Game.exe" -w -3dfx -dxnoresmod
>game.exe has no "compability" enabled, and no "run as admin" enabled

On 2560x1440 resolution it worked with 1.4-1.6....depends on your resolution need to test what works and what not.
