As a newbie Σ-player and "rare" (https://forum.median-xl.com/viewtopic.php?p=61076#p61076) owner of widescreen (16:9) display, I was confused of black borders at left and right sides.
The deeeeepest search showed that developers don't care that it looks ugly, so I did what I could to keep my esthetic feelings in safety
I found Diablo II works perfect with ReShade. Therefore, in addition to forming my own preset, I used the
Layer.fxshader with photoshopped placeholder (collage of multiple parts of Diablo III pre-releases & actual screenshots to be consistent with Σ 1.2 GUI). Also – because of expanding viewport – I added new overlayed panel figures.
So, there is some...
- 1st version -
- o Before (ReShade is fully disabled):
- o After (with some other shaders):
- o The perfect remastering made by duysir0:
- 2nd version -
Is made in 4 different color schemes:
- 1. "Classic" banners [▮▮] for brave wanderers
2. "Heroic" banners [▮▮] for valiant paladins
3. Completely gray [▮▮]
4. "Monochromatic" banners [▮▮]
Layer.fxonly is turned on:

► Where it is
1. Download and install ReShade.
2. To enable this overlay, (re)place the "layer.png" file* into "reshade-shaders\Textures" directory (it creates by ReShade installer in your Diablo II folder).
3. After that, edit your "DefaultPreset.ini" by changing variable
[Layer.fx]section; set value
1.2**. Make sure there is the

* Make sure the file has the exact name "layer.png". If not, rename it.
** My display has 1920×1080 screen resolution; in other cases the scale factor may be different, I actually didn't experiment with that.
- o ReShade:
- o Download ReShade 4.3.0 (installing with selection "OpenGL" as rendering API)
o Old preset (used on my first attempt)
o 2nd decorator (full package with all 4 variants + preset settings)
Have a good game!
