Craving Diablo III? Want to try and fill the void until its release? Well for those of us who want some classic hacking & slashing action, but aren’t willing to play Diablo II in the old cruddy 800 x 600… The High Resolution (Multi-res) patch comes to the rescue.
The Multi-res patch allows you to play Diablo II in any resolution supported by your monitor, there are a few caveats but nothing that stops the awesomeness of high res Diablo.
Here is a comparison of multiple resolutions:
640 x 480
1440 x 900
This patch has been out for a while, but it doesn’t stop it from making it a fantastic way to replay Diablo II.
A small warning, do not attempt to use the patch on Battlenet, it’s for singleplayer and LAN only. You can snag the patch off Filefront, available here http://www.filefront.com/14112529/D2MultiRes-v102.zip/.
