Is there any way I can enable sound without D2 shitting itself when I’m farming large mobs?

Already tried using Glide? Alot of options in there that might improve the performance

Known problem, no fix. Hard coded nonsense that would require a complete sound rework in the engine. If I remember correctly, even Sigma will not fix this issue, unless something has happened since it was discussed and a work-around found.

If it could ease the load I hope next patch will cut some of the useless sounds that get played, like the vessels' hit ones f.e.

Suchbalance has been working on reducing this lag, if I remember correctly, he already did improve some.

Other than that, yeah, it's a known issue of the D2 engine and we can't do much about it. Maybe in the future in Sigma.
