HowTo / Notes

HOWTO: IPX Multiplayer
To get ipx network support, IPX will have to be enabled in the kernel, and you need some userspace utilities, usually called ipx-utils; and IPX must be started (there should be an initscript).

 *ubuntu users can use the commands:

sudo apt-get install ipx; sudo modprobe ipx; sudo ipx_interface add -p eth0 802.2 0x12345678

(change eth0 for the name of your ethernet/wireless card)

The frame type (802.2) needs to be equal for everyone. It is recommended to use ethernet II instead of 802.2. If playing with computers with Windows, make sure their frame type is set to what you have, and not 'automatic'. It may cause issues if you forget it.
HOWTO: Use Hellfire without the CD.

First, put the Diablo CD in! If you've already installed it, great. If not, go do that. Then, do this on the command line:

note: this dosnt need to be done for the hellfire CD

dd if=/dev/cdrom of=~/Diablo.iso

To mount this image of the CD:
sudo mkdir /media/iso0
sudo mount -o loop ~/Diablo.iso /media/iso0

Using winecfg, add a new drive that points to /media/iso0, and give it the type CD-ROM. Finally, run Diablo.exe in your program files and you're done! Whenever you want to mount it again, just do:
sudo mount -o loop ~/Diablo.iso /media/iso0

When you're done and don't feel like keeping it mounted, just do:
sudo umount /media/iso0

If you have any issues still with Diablo complaining about no CD being inserted, make sure the iso mount point you made is configured as a CD-ROM device in winecfg, and make sure you have already mounted it first!

~/wine/dosdevices should contain: (D being the drive letter of the iso image)

d\: (link to /media/iso0)

d\:\: (link to ~/Diablo.iso)

HOWTO: Fixing blank menus

Follow the instruction which is available at:

DirectDraw Mode

You must have DirectDrawRenderer in the registry set to "gdi" (which is the default) for Diablo to work. If you have changed it to "opengl" at any point then the game will crash after the Blizzard logos.

 for your convenience here is a reg file that will change it for you:

-------------start DDrawRender.reg-------------

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\Diablo.exe\Direct3D] "DirectDrawRenderer"="gdi"

--------------end DDrawRender.reg--------------

just copy the date NOT including the dashed lines to DDrawRender.reg and then use

wine regedit DDrawRender.reg

to add it to the registry
