Diablo 1

General Discussion
can you play diablo 1 in mac? i miss that game. pure awesome. :3
I haven't played it in awhile, but the last time I installed it a year or so ago, I don't recall having to do anything other than run it in a window (which looked pretty silly on my huge desktop). I wish I could remember if I tweaked anything to get it to run. It's been too long. Perhaps running it in WinXP SP3 Compatibility mode?

In a very round-a-bout way since there is no Classic Mode in Mac OS X 10.6 and higher.... Sheepshaver is one way (it emulates a PowerPC system where you can run up to Mac OS 9.0.4). Another way is using CrossOver (which slaps a GUI over Wine and has automated installation routines for a variety of software including D1 and D2). I myself have D1 (as well as a couple of other older Windows games like Blade Runner and a few of the later Wizardry titles) setup in a VMware virtual machine running Windows XP.

I still have my old multiplayer characters and last played it after the open beta weekend. Movement speed is a drag but the atmosphere and music are still incredible after all these years.

Just don't cheat.


The dupe glitch was just too real. lmao
I had the same troubles on windows 7 but i got windows 10 and D1 runs fine, except when I exit the game it thinks the game crashed....
Diablo 1 is, was, and will be the best Diablo game. Best music and best atmosphere by a mile. There are a couple good gameplay mods as well.

Don't even bother with the broken original, I'd recommend playing the Diablo HD MOD.

Oh, and nice necro bump. :-P
