Edit:

1. Reinstall D2 (install it everywhere but not in "c:/program files")
2. Download and install patch 1.13c (do not connect to battlenet)
3. Install MXL Launcher
4. Run D2VidTest as an admin and with Win Xp sp3 compatybility
5. Run Launcher as an admin, wait till it download files
6. Play the game

So I just reinstalled. It installed 1.14 directly from the installer. There's no option to select any different version. I'm gonna have to pirate an older version just to play this mod, aren't I?

The launcher works with any version of d2. Do what he said (omit step 2) and see if it works.

Nope, just provides a launcher screen after it's done installing and the play button does nothing. Attempting to run it directly only causes it to give me an error telling me to insert the cd for storm.dll. I'll just see if I can procure an older version and install through that.

Sounds like you didn't run d2vidtest and select a video mode.
