Ok, so I have spent the entire day yesterday looking for fixes apparently a game installed directx 11 and now my diablo2 isn't working...HELP!!!! I need to refresh my characters so they don't disappear forever!

I'm getting the "error 25: a critical error has occurred while initializing direct3d"

I tried the Microsoft patches, which didn't do anything, I also tried updating my drivers, now my dxdiag says direct3d is working but now directdraw isn't!!! sigh...

Any thoughts would be welcomed.

Not a clue Eagle, sorry! I usually try to have an extra older computer around for older games for that reason! Too many incompatibilities.

I am currently looking at just taking it over to my linux partition...which means me sitting down and doing some serious thinking on what I'm doing :D not just click and play.
