I wanted to try the multiplayer today, but the problem is: Battle.Net is a mess. As soon as I enter BNET, it's simply impossible to distinguish a single word - but strangely, the rest of the interface looks fine. Does anybody have the same problem?
The text is rendered on top of the graphics by Windows using Times New Roman, so if there are any issues with that on your system then that would be the issue. On top of that Diablo does a poor job of communicating where to render things.
Where you looking to play with friends or strangers?
The point was to play with strangers, and try the multiplayer aspect of the game which totally eluded me back in the days.
I have no idea with Windows would fail to display Times New Roman - I'm a writer, so Windows fonts certainly wasn't the aera where I was expecting to find problems.
