Modification to vanilla Diablo/Hellfire.
Based on Hellfire but you need only DIABDAT.MPQ from original Diablo to play in this mod.
1. Singleplayer (works perfectly).
2. Menu (have issues, more in additional comments).
What does not
Nothing, except game in menu oftenly crash with my specific settings.
What was not tested
I don't use any hacks to run Diablo: The Hell. I found way how to use game menu without hacked ddraw.dll and other tricks. When Compiz effects enabled (not cube desktop, just compiz) menu visible (it's Appearance/Visual Effects/Normal for Ubuntu). But with enabled Compiz game oftenly crashes in menu. To prevent immediate crash when single player mode selected I open "Credits", then "Credits" again and only after this weird manipulations I can open single player mode without crash. If game loaded but we see black screen -- use alt+tab and alt+tab once more. It's like magic, but it works.

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.
