what happens when you run it in a window?

And the skies parted. The earth trembled and the seas poured into the endless cracks of hell's mouth. Only he who remains is chosen to be the next, and only he who remains will survive the final battle.

have you tried running standard D2? does it close out? do you have a legit copy? try using the -noexit commandline command and see what that does, also, is there an error log? an error message?

basically, what have you tried and are there anymore details you can give besides "it turns black" and "it quits"

did you try running the video test?

spazoman, please edit your post instead of posting consecutive messages next time, thanks.

As for your problem, there should be a file in your D2 folder called D2YYMMDD.txt (YY=year, MM=month, DD=day). Inside, search for Assertion Failure. If you find one, post here the 10 or so lines that follow the Assertion Failure text. If there is none, chances are you have an Unhandled Exception, and in that case it will be difficult to say what causes the problem.
