Diablo II LOD can't find CD noob


I am running Mandriva 2006 (free) with wine and I can't seem to get Diablo II LOD to find the CD. I would like to play without the CD (or download the CD to the drive and use it from there) I have tried to copy the CD to the drive and point system.reg and user.reg to the location of the files. (as they are in wine, c:\diablo2CD) also I have tried to make sure the D:\ is the CD-ROM drive and set DiabloIICD="d:\" in system.reg and user.reg and run it from the CD. That still doesn't work.

Are you sure Diablo 2 doesn't find the CD at all?
Or that it fails the copy-protection check?
IIRC you'll get the same "helpful" message in both cases.

Ah... you want to skip the play CD.. then you'll need to hunt the warez/crackz sites for a NoCD patch. The copy protection of Diablo 2 reads from the play CD.. a lot!

I think I had to use Winver=win2k for the copy protection to read the CD correctly.

Yes lpd you are correct. I had to do the same thing for both Cedega and wine. Since your using wine you have to go into your .wine direction. It should be /home/yourloginname/.wine/, in there is a file called config, go into and look for "winver" set it to win2k. When I get home I'll send you a copy of my config file and maybe more detail on the steps needed to be taken in order to get your D2LOD running fine. Until then Good Luck!

I don't have a config file. Only system.reg user.reg and userdef.reg I do not have a config file. Also those files do not have winver= in them. Do you think wine is not setup correct?

Run wine config dont remember the exact name of the program, type wine<Tab><Tab> that should give you a list of possible programs.

Go into the application configuration and add DiabloII then set the win version to Win2K. Save.

Make a symlink in ~/.wine/dos-devices that points to the copy of the play cd, e.g.

~/.wine/dos-devices/d: -> /win/c/Diablo2CD

Just to finish up, if you set the winver in cedega to win2k u don't have to go into .wine also the video issue i was having was because it auto picked 3d-hal but in reality I needed to use 2d-hal

~/.wine/dos-devices is where your drives are. Actually it is just symlinks that point to devices in /dev or to mount points. You can create the symlink using the config program winecfg. I can't tell you exactly how to do that right now, I'm not at home, but you would click on a tab probably labled Drives, then select Add and tell winecfg it is a cdrom. Make sure you save before exiting.

<edit>Make sure the cdrom is mounted before you start DiabloII.

Run winecfg, Click on Drives tab, Click on Show Advanced button. Click Add button, select CD-ROM from the Type Pull-Down menu. Click on Browse next to path and browse to the cdrom mount point or type in the mount point for your cdrom. Click Apply

<edit>To find the mount point for your cdrom look in the /etc/fstab file.
