I know this is probably silly to be trying but is there a way to possibly run Diablo II LOD on Mac OS X 10 without dismantling my current operating system? Someone said I could use "Rosetta" but so far that has proven unsuccessful. I have a 2.4GHz MacBook with OS X version 10.5.8. I know there are other games I could play instead but I already paid for my copy... thanks!

You shouldn't have to do anything since the original diabolo 2 worked on mac out of the box. I'm not sure if osx has a 'compatibility mode' as vista and 7 do, however if osx cannot run it and you have a mac with an intel chipset, ie, dual core or better, then you can use bootcamp to install xp/vista/7 and run it through that. I use my macbook pro to play coall of duty waw and it works fine.

Go to battle.net, enter your CD-keys and download the OSX installer. The installer on the CD won't work but once you register your CD key, you can download one that will.

Hey guys I just wanted to let you know that despite the fact that I am able to get the patches and OSX native installers (which worked successfully) the game is still unable to run because it turns out my specific model of macbook has a graphics card that doesn't support the game (GMA X3100 - used in the early 2008 Macbook models) because it doesn't support 250color. I heard that blizzard is currently working on a patch for this, but until then I guess I will have to find another game... thanks for the help!

Hey,

Have you found a solution yet? I have 10.5.8 too, and it wont run, keeps quitting. I don't really understand what the problem is: is it because our version of OS X is too recent? I have installed D2 LOD and put patches on i but it keeps saying "the application has quit". I'm fed up...

If you got any news, plz respond,

see ya,

If you have the same macbook as me, which you probably do, it's your graphics card, so there's not really anything that can be done right now. If you wanna see what card you have, go to the apple on the bar and select "about this mac." then hit "more info," then in the left hand column go to "graphics/displays." if it says, "GMA X3100" next to "chipset model," then that means you've got the card that can't run diablo because it doesn't support 250color option. As far as I can tell our operating system has nothing to do with it. Blizzard is working on a patch, but until that is complete we just get to sit here and remind ourselves why we decided to get a mac and not a PC. If you want to check on the status of the patch, it seems to be getting covered here: http://forums.battle.net/thread.html?topicId=1449829384...
