[Diablo 2] Needing help on the program. ^_^

Forums 

First and Foremost!!

I have tried looking for something like this, but apprently, it is not on here. So I am here to ask for some help, of anyone's, I used to play Diablo II: Expansion many times, but got bored and deleted it. But now I do not remember how to do anything and now I am of need of assistance from anyone.

My problem is that it keeps flashing black, or rather black lines and I can see a little bit, but not much. I remember my Ex-boyfriend used to do something to make it go smaller, making me able to play and see other things like MSN, or yahoo, or anything like that and still able to play. It was something to do with the properties, but I am not sure how to do that anymore.

If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. ^_^

Thank you.

if ur having a problem minimizing it u could hold Alt+Tab and that should minimize d2 so then u can go on msn or something then just do Alt+Tab again and u should be able to back on to d2 but i mean like have ur d2 on a window forum instead of full streen i forget too lol

That is not what I mean, I know about Alt+Tab, I mean one where I can still play Diablo 2 when I can see my screen as well. I do not remember how to do it, but I wish someone can tell me....

I think you mean the window properties? You can do this by adding a -w to the end of the shortcut link which will allow you to run diablo 2 in windowed mode.

Either window mode, or better resolution would be the key.

They have certain programs that manually window mode it for you. Shouldn't be too hard to find.

When you can see your screen but play diablo 2, i think matrix is right, it sounds like window mode... just right click on your diablo 2 short cut and add -w to the end of
( "C:\Program Files\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe" ) so that it reads
( "C:\Program Files\Diablo II\Diablo II.exe" -w )
But with out the parenthasies. If this isnt what you need then post again with a better explanation so that matrix or someone else may better help you. Because this is all i can think of.

ps. not trying to be rude.

you can do a bunch of stuff with that, for instance, you can also make a new lvl 31 char by puttin" -act5" there
