Fresh install last night, played for a few hours and I went to log in today and the game is stuck on "checking versions"
anyone have any ideas for a fix?
Nobody can log in. Unless there's something I'm missing, it appears there's an issue with the gateway itself, which would means it's completely up to GoG to fix it, if they even bother to. I highly doubt they have any staff who are regularly checking in on it.
The old gateways for the cd-rom copy (US West/East, Europe, Asia) still accept the Diablo 1 client, so you can log into those if you have the original copy of the game.
