Modification to vanilla Diablo/Hellfire.
Based on Hellfire but you need only DIABDAT.MPQ from original Diablo to play in this mod.
Everything after the menu screen (the base game works great!)
What does not
The main menu is bugged.
To resolve the bugged main menu you can wiggle the mouse around to redraw a local region around the cursor. A big headache during character creation.
Changing the display resolution in a virtual desktop can partially mitigate the problem too - but can also make it worse if you choose a bad resolution.
What was not tested
Haven't gone start-to-finish in the game. But I've played ~10 hours.

I found a way how to use game start menu without hacked ddraw.dll. Usually it shows black screen and you can't do anything if you don't know menu of this game. You need to enable Compositing in Metacity. To do this in Ububntu you can use Ubuntu Tweak tool (http://ubuntu-tweak.com/downloads). At least it works for me with ATI Catalyst driver. Menu will be glitchy but should work. Also you can try to enable Compiz instead but in this case menu may be very unstable and crash game in various cases.
This method must work for original Diablo game too.
If it doesn't help then try to use suggestions for Diablo 1.0x.
