It's been 21 years since the first release of Diablo 2, and we, who are old enough to play it for the first time, can look forward to the remastered version on September 24th. Like other newer versions of classic games, Diablo 2: Resurrected benefits. Modern hardware, but one of the things it does is work on ultra-widescreen displays. According to Blizzard, true 21:9 support spoils the game.
Diablo 2 Technical Alpha supported a 21:9 ratio, but the trial version lowered this maximum width to 19:9. Blizzard writes that the problems became apparent in the earlier era. "For example, the AI could not sense the player and launch attacks. In addition, players with 21:9 screens were able to fight more monsters in a range beyond that of the original game."
"In the scenario where players (eg: playing in different classes) attack monsters, players with a 21:9 screen can infect enemies with this extra screen space, but the monsters didn't drag or interact, but no It can still, in the end, not record an AI hit from another distance afforded by the 21:9 screen."
This change means that anyone who sees Diablo 2: revived on a 21:9 ultrawide screen or monitor Ultra 32:9 Ultra Like Samsung's Odyssey Neo G9 you see black bars on both sides of the screen. "We continue to watch these discussions and explore possible solutions that do not change the way we play," Blizzard added.
Another key feature of Alpha Tech has been removed by Blizzard which is TCP/IP support. Compared to using the studio's servers, version 2000 allowed peer-to-peer communication in version 2000, but Blizzard "realized that this feature would cause major security issues in our game."
We understand that removing this feature is a significant barrier for talented multiplayer moderators in our community. However, our priority is to keep the game system as secure as possible for all of our players.
Blizzard confirms that multiplayer mods are still available, including the ability to tweak certain files. You'll still be able to adjust skill values, items, and more.
