Diablo II + Expansion LOD will crash in single player mode within 1 min of starting the game. This only happens after I patch it past 1.7. The expansion brings the game to vers 1.7.
AMD 6400+ 3.2 duel core
2 gigs ram
BFG Feforce 8800 GTX OC
Plextor DVD-r drive
What I've Tried:
I dug through the net all day looking for similar issues. The only thing I could find was a CTD with an error code that other people were getting, mine of course is different in the fact that it just reboots my PC. I followed all steps except for reformatting.
run virus scanner
run spyware scanner (2 different programs)
run registry scanner (3 different programs)
switched out the 8800 GTX for a Radeon 1900 XTX to check for driver issues
switched the video settings on both video cards for 2-d and 3-d
double checked sound driver
double checked video card drivers
installed/reinstalled Diablo II and expansion around 10 times
installed patches from battlenet and downloaded the stand alone patches
The latest patch is 1.12a and I've tried that quite a bit. I just can't figure out why this isn't running. The only other thing I can think of is to reformat but I would rather not. It's just a huge pain.
There doesn't seem to be an issue with not patching it, or playing online patched but I want to play offline and that is were the problem is or seems to be. I'm at a complete loss... I just cannot figure this out.
