"Diablo Patch" (playing Diablo in windowed mode!)
Hello.

This Diablo hack works excellent! You can play Diablo in windowed mode.

-> https://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comments...troducing/ (where I found it at)
--> https://diablopat.ch/download.php (the official site)

Quote:Full compatibility with modern versions of Windows
Windowed mode: Diablo now runs in a resizable window
Non-intrusive: modifies game code only in memory
Items on ground are highlighted by pressing ALT
Highlighted monster has a health bar at the top of the screen
Life and mana bulbs also display life and mana in numeric form
Spells level modifiers are displayed in spell book
Shrines effects are displayed in the text zone when highlighted
Dupe bug fixed (by the way, I've read somewhere that fixing this bug was not possible for Blizzard because it would mean rewriting a good part of the game engine... This is absolutely false. It is just a few lines of code to add).

I use it on Windows 7. Logging on to Battle.net works, but... It sometimes displays funny.
You can use ALT + C to create games and kind of 'click on thin air' to select Hell/Nightmare/Normal.

Other than that? Works great!

I don't know if it's Diablo Patch causing it or something else, but: Nova cast in the Cave levels causes lag spikes. The monster's health soars to 80,000+ then dies.

I forget which monster (as I usually avoid the cave levels).

You have to use this with Win 7? Never had issues with D1 and Win 7.

I use Win 10 now though, and this patch is literally the only way I can play D1 anymore.

Really hope the creator implements full screen mode in the next version though....

You should be able to add your own full screen toggle.

It's hooking the DirectX calls to force it into "Windowed mode" more or less.
If you're unfamiliar with DirectX: Look it up! It's rather simple to write a program with it.

DOSBox, for instance, renders between SDL, OpenGL and DirectX (all three can toggle between full screen drawing and the special 'windowed' mode drawing).
