If the game is slow and choppy, run the d2vid test and choose the option on the top, I believe it's 2d directdraw, that fixed it for me also. The colors are a little off but not bad,

Like I said, it works perfectly for me after running the video test from the d2 folder again and choosing directdraw instead of 3d.

I'm sure there is a about a million geeks ripping windows 10 apart right now. Give it a couple weeks to a month and The flaws will start popping up on websites.

No way no how should it be choppy. Diablo and maphack were written for computers that ran at speeds that are less than 1% of a high end I7 cpu we have today.

All versions of windows always have had backwards compatibility or drivers issues. When I went from XP to windows 7, my printer stop working.

All I can say is be patient, the hardcore nerds have their glass's taped up and are at work, a new windows always gets them foaming and compatibility will be high on their list.

Also if Moogie suggestion fails, try updating your video drivers. The one you got from Microsoft is probably outdated even though you just installed it.

Running the video test at directdraw worked for highlander. It should work for you and stop the choppiness.
