Love This Game!

tea hunter 2017-03-11 1 point Windows version

First, I haven't been on the internet in ten years. However, I've installed hundreds of pieces of software, into the XP environment. Just not much of the modern stuff. I downloaded Diablo into a C:/Diablo directory and ran the executable. The conventional game works just fine. But the original game I have no desire to play, as it is tedious beyond measure. [I've had the Hellfire-Diablo for years but do not currently have my disks available... thus, this option.] I downloaded Hellfire, but all I get from the .zip extraction is a Hellfire.bin file - which I have no idea how to use. Suggestions?

Hi. Downloaded the file for Mac. Now what do I do to run it? When I open the file, it’s text.


Anon 2017-02-04 0 point Windows version

To play Diablo without the color problem, try to open the Resolution Screen (Right-click on screen) and leave it in the background. Many guys say, this will solve it.

If not, do the following:

Create a .bat file (just create a new text file and save it as NAME.bat later) in the game directory with the following content:
@echo off
taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
start explorer.exe

Start Diablo with that .bat file. It will simply close your explorer.exe, before the Diablo.exe will start. The explorer comes back, when you quit Diablo.

woah! i remember this game as one of my earliest gaming experiences. so much fun and got to learn about story. which inevitably made me the kind of person that needs a story driven game. so happy for this.

Loved this game. I have a problem with the video on this downloaded one, though. It installed fine, used img mount and worked fine. However, when loading blizzard logo and for the in game dash are all weird looking. It looks like old school dos vga, light blue/green/red colors. Game works fine other than the distorted and pixelated color. bad sprites? not sure whats causing this. I run win 7 and use clonedrive img mount. Also, the patches wont install either. Hoped that would help, but cant even get those to install? Anyone ran into video issue?

It works fine on Windows 10 for me, I didn't need to use any fixes. Bnet patched it for me when trying to connect.

The downloads keep stopping, I keep getting "fatal network error." Is this on my end, or y'alls? I have good enough network speed to download steam games etc I just am having issues downloading from this specific file...

Bapho 2016-10-29 1 point Windows version

This game was and is still one of the best of it's kind!
I nearly crapped my kiddie-pants back in 1997, when I first saw and played it at a friend's place ^^
Today, I play it again with the Diablo 1 HD Mod (Belzebub - Download it here: ) for a completely new experience!
New classes, new enemies, new items (including rares and sets), new quests (which were originally actually built into the game but hidden in the programming code.) So awesome! Check it out - you won't regret it :)

Any help getting this to run on OSX?

FlipTripping 2016-07-15 2 points

This game was amazing when i first played it. I'm so hype about it being free :D. Perfect to casually have going while working.

iao 2016-06-11 -7 points

First time trying any abandonware - will this run on Boxer for Mac 10?

rudolfoid 2016-05-07 1 point

The Mac OS 9 emulator found here works terrifically:

But both .sit files result in errors when they're opened in that emulator. The toast file doesn't work, and the other comes up with an error saying it needs a CD to run. If someone could fix this and supply a new file, it would be so great!

Installer Game of Games 2016-03-16 0 point

ops Now my issues is why don't you have anything on step by step instructions on how to play individual games... I downloaded the shepshaver whatever thats called and its not working... Never opens or anything I am running Bosc el capitan latest version of march 2016 so please advise what to do next.... its very important that i play this game I LOVED THIS GAME AND NEED TO FINISH THIS GAME ASAP.... it reminds me when i was back in the good old 90's and its amazing how we can preserve the games its a shame that the Operating systems keep chasing and fewer programs software whatever lets us play lesser and lesser oldie games....
any one know where I can find the Ripper for mac game?
mid 95 i think...

grimcow 2016-03-12 0 point

Hey everyone, Ive been trying to place this. Sheepshaver seemed to difficult to install and I did not have an OS disc. This one seems promising however!

I am still downloading a game to test it

spiritK 2016-02-24 1 point

coleos 2016-02-07 0 point

combofate 2015-06-01 0 point Mac version

I was trying to install Diablo on my MAC with Yosemite 10.10. It wrote me that it's unable to open install file because it's damaged. How could I fixed it?


SquizzeyMacKnutts 2015-05-14 1 point Mac version

A free emulator for Mac OS 9 that runs on all versions of Mac OS X (at least, I have never had a problem doing so) is called Sheepshaver. I believe there are Linux and Windows ports now, as well, however, I cannot vouch for their reliability of those versions. I am a huge fan of all the Diablo releases and I have not had any trouble running Diablo 1 in Sheepshaver. Get info here:

MisterKaos357 2015-03-22 -2 points Mac version

So I guess you're supposed to execute this from ~bash right?

Ian 2015-03-16 1 point Mac version

It opens as a text file on my Mac. What program should I use to open it with?

Huck24 2015-03-05 -1 point Mac version

Someone really ought to create an older Mac OS emulator...

Hawk 2015-01-30 1 point Mac version

Does anyone know how to install this? I have an OS9 emulator but I can't figure out what needs to be put in the system folder.

Tried it 2015-01-08 1 point Mac version

Doesn't work on MAC! Says "file may be incomplete"

Malserste 2015-01-04 1 point Mac version

Probably becouse it doesn't work on osx

NSMC 2014-08-15 -1 point Mac version

yea.... now i see why no one downloaded :( thy gave me two .sit files

CariME 2014-08-15 0 point Mac version

Probably because it's Mac only. I hope they get a PC version soon!
