My new Mac arrives, gets a gaming strike immediately.
So my first experience with trying to play one of my Windows games on my new iMac was met with an immediate *splat* sound. 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.Tags: blizzard, diablo, Mac
