Diablo II Update Removes Need For CD In Drive
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 11 comments

Blizzard Entertainment has released a new patch for Diablo II and its expansion Lord of Destruction. The update brings the game to version 1.12 and adds the action adventure game to the list of Blizzard titles now free of CD key checks. The update also fixes a problem experienced by Intel Mac owners.

More about the patch:

Downloadable Installer Support
- If all required Diablo 2 '.MPQ' files are installed on the hard drive, the game will no longer require the CD to play.

For users that originally performed a 'Full Installation' and wish to run without the CD, all '.MPQ' files should be copied from the Diablo 2 CDs to the Diablo 2 directory. Most users will only need to copy D2Music.mpq from the Diablo 2 Play CD and/or D2xMusic.mpq from the Lord of Destruction CD. Mac users will need to copy these music files and rename them to 'Diablo II Music' and 'Diablo II Expansion Music' respectively.

Anyone who did not perform a 'Full Installation' will need to re-install from CD again to ultimately play without the CD. In this case, a 'Full Installation' is required, followed by file copy step noted above.

Bug Fixes
- Fixed an incompatibility between Rosetta and OpenGL mode on Intel Mac.
The patch can be downloaded from the link listed below or directly from battle.net when signing in.
