Borderless window part yes, but glide settings will work regardless of that, and they improve lightning and how game looks, supersampling makes it much shaper if you upscale window size. If you use modern monitor, you most likely won't be interested in playing with 1024p tiny window, want make it bigger, without becoming blurry.

Thanks.
Yeah, I had already configured the Glide Wrapper, as I already used it with another mod so I knew what it was about. I was talking about the borderless window part.
I'm playing on a laptop, on 1920x1080. So far I've been playing on full screen with black bars, as I play only SP and don't really need to have anything else open (although I do alt+tab fairly frequently to check wiki and stuff, as I'm new to MXL).

This is what i get currently on windows 10, 1920x1080.

It is quite frustrating as i have had success with this app in the past.

Alternative Is to use AHK script. Window will not be borderless but will be enlarged and moved to exact position you want it to.
This is mine: (first 2 coordinates is X,Y position of left upper corner of window, second two numbers = resolution of window).
You need to run this scrips as admin to work. Also iirc need uncheck "keep aspect ratio" it caused problems.

The borderless window program doesnt detect anything and the drop down is empty.

also to follow up, i can accept just playing fullscreen, it's not ideal but whatever i did it for years. However do you have any issues with the game stuttering or dropping frames etc? i noticed it mainly when i just hit act 2 and i'm going around the sewers, my game freezes quite often, freezing for like half a second to a second and then catching up at hyper speed.

Pretty sure if youre killing all "the pack" since there's so many you lag due to sound.

I get alphanumerical characters on win 7 but the game does not seem to start (waited about 1 minute)
it is strange because battle net diablo works perfectly in -3dfx borderless window with the same glide settings

edit1: it seems i must not tick 'keep desktop composition' in glide but that's annoying since it makes my windows look sad

edit2: must be related to the game version somehow since i get the same issue in path of diablo
basically bnet uses 1.14 and modded versions use 1.13 which somehow messes it up
