This unofficial "patch" allows you to play Diablo II in resolutions
other than 640x480 and 800x600. It is, for the most part, completed,
but there are still a few issues that have not been worked out. The
"patch" lets you select any resolution 640x480 or higher that is
supported by your current display adapter/monitor. There are no other
changes to the game other than this.

Everything on Wine's end works fine.
What does not
What was not tested
Already had vcrun2005 installed so I cannot attest to whether or not it is needed.
Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.
This mod does not work with patch 1.13. You MUST be updated only to 1.12 for this to work. This is not a wine issue, as it ocurrs on Windows as well.
You can try doing whatever you want with the window(in a window mode, of course), but with full-screen it's not like that. After few alt+tabs, or a screen move(alt+drag) the game will no longer be at full screen - you'll be able to see the task bars, or even worse, the "window" will be lost, but the process will be on.
If you play full-screen, do not try moving the screen.
Also, when doing alt+tab on windowed mode, when you get back, the game will be freezed. Just press alt+enter, and it will get back as normal.
WARNING: Clicking on start
While playing the intro, if you click your mouse without previously being moved, you will open the trash.
Move the mouse when the "blizzard" intro comes in, and click. This happens because the mouse possition is at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
WARNING: First Run!
On the first entering in the game, you can see all the graphics glitched: the inventory, character screen, skills, the stash - it will all be a mess, items not adopted to the "background". Just change the resolution and everything will be okay!
Window managers often have the alt key bound to certain features,
especially the alt-click. This is not a wine bug. If you have problems
with the alt key in any way do not report it. Fix your window manager.
I'm not going to list steps for every one because there are too many
possibilites. Figure out yourself or ask in a help forum (here is
okay... but be warned all I use is TWM). If you are desperate, turn off
window manager managed windows in winecfg.
Go into KDE Control Center, expand Desktop, click window behavior, then
click window actions tab. You can turn off the alt-combos. If you want
to make window specific settings, click on window specific settings
under window behavior on the side.
The option to change the key binding is in System Menu -> Preferences Menu -> Windows.

Doesn't work with LoD 1.13c

Doesn't work with the latest patch LoD 1.13c under wine 1.2 (which, in turn works flawlessly).
I installed vcrun2005, but still I get the message:
"Unable to load D2MultiRes.dll"
Multires won't start
by erik on Wednesday December 9th 2009, 14:14
Installed D2 + LOD + Patch 1.11b successfully, runs smooth in DirectDraw with D2Loader-1.11b.exe (natural game.exe doesn't start, always asks for cd, even if mounted and drive settings are correct. 800x600 is cut off at the bottom though, so I could only play in 640x480 -.-).
But I can't get MultiRes to start, "wine D2MultiResGame.exe" always results in error-prompt "Unable to load D2MultiRes.dll" although its located in the same directory, no output in the shell, btw.
I've already installed winetricks vcrun2005 dotnet20 msxml6.
I'm running out of patience, ideas anyone? Help would be hugely appreciated.
