HowTo / Notes

see the instructions for Diablo to make this work
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-------------

[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
