Warning errors during play

Archived from groups: alt.games.diablo2 (More info?)

While fighting the Ancients on hell level with my Assassin, I
consistently get warning errors (the game stops completely, a dialog
opens in windows, I can click "OK" and continue...) It's on an XP SP2
machine with the 1.10 patch.

The dialog reads


Warning
Location : D2Game\Ai\AiThink.cpp, line #18694
Expression : !StatsGetState (hUnit, UNIT_STATE_UNINTERRUPTABLE)


This also has occured a few other times on Hell, around the times when I
cast Cloak of Shadows and Death Sentries around Blood Hawk trees (or
whatever the generator things are called).

For now, ancients is unplayable due to this thing... It's the same
problem on my other PC.

It happens in net play (TCP/IP) AND single player.

Any ideas? Google only showed one hit so far, but only confirms I'm not
alone:

    I was getting similar activity for a while. Took my machine to a tech and he
    loaded drivers for it... Drivers weren't upto date. My new machine began
    having it's own problems, screen blacked out but game continued, turned out
    to be Graphix or Video Card conflicting with the game. Upgraded the card and
    fixed the problem.

    Both my cards are modern (GeForce FX -- both have 128MB RAM) and the
    drivers are the latest from NVIDIA. NVIDIA even has a profile for Diablo
    II. I've tried with or without this profile being active and it still
    gives the warnings. I tried deactivating "Perspective" in Diablo, and it
    still gives the warnings. I suppose I can try it with DirectDraw (2D)
    rather than Direct3D.

    What I find strange is that in only happens with the Ancients and/or
    Blood Hawk nests. Further play on the Ancients last night (finally beat
    them with my Tiger Strike/Death Sentry Assassin, she is weak with them
    on Hell level), shows that casting Cloak of Shadows isn't the problem.

    A few times during the near-hour episode the Warning message appeared
    when I hadn't cast CoS. However, I did notice that the "distant" view
    from Arreat of the ground below (when you move to the left) causes a
    noticeable pause when it appears on the screen... Graphics drivers do
    seem to be suspicious, if a timing error is what's causing the Warning
    message.

    Doesn't seem to matter -- warning dialogs still pop up and the game
    freezes. I checked that I *do* have the latest NVIDIA drivers.
