Modification to vanilla Diablo/Hellfire.
Based on Hellfire but you need only DIABDAT.MPQ from original Diablo to play in this mod.
What does not
Everything. Crashes before intro movie loads. err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x1503a188 "?" wait timed out in thread 002b, blocked by 0027, retrying (60 sec) ... ad infinitum
What was not tested
If you're using ulatency or the latest fork of it, disable it before trying to run. Will cause your current session to hang, forcing you to reboot or CTRL-ALT-F2 and kill the TH.exe process by hand.

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.
