My new Mac arrives, gets a gaming strike immediately.

It turns out since I was an early adopter of Diablo II, I got it before the discs were hybrid. The Mac version wasn’t ready yet. And while Blizzard offers a modern installer on their website so you can install Diablo II and its expansion on your modern Mac, it seems it has to be a hybrid disc to do the trick.

Fortunately, that installer does accept the product keys I have on my discs, which means all I need to do is get my hands on a hybrid copy. And, since they’re *my* keys, I feel entitled. My other Blizzard and Bungie games ought to work just fine, it looks like they’re all hybrids. As to some of my other software… we’ll just have to see.

    I have the Battle Chest version, I can have James mail it to you if you want.

    I love my iMac but I learned a long time ago not to waste money buying games for it at all. I had Roller Coaster 3 and it runs superslow even though my iMac is top of the line. These things are made for everything but games.

    I love my MBPro but I’ve given up gaming on the PC for consoles. The last game that I played on the PC was WoW, other than that I think you can have an equal or better experience on a console compared to a PC.

    Unless the game is exclusive to a PC. Then you’re kind of hosed.

    There’s always Bootcamp though.

    A couple of ISOs later, Diablo II is up and running, but it has trouble in OpenGL mode, for some reason. Warcraft III installed without issue using Blizzard’s downloadable native installer, but my Starcraft disc is, perplexingly, also not a hybrid. Yet another surprise from my Blizzard library.
