    I don't see Diablo I mentioned anywhere there, but the wikipedia mentions this about playing Diablo I in shareware:

    "Diablo normally requires the original CD to play, however also included on the disk is a shareware version of the software that could be played without the CD called "Diablo Spawn". This version of the game could be used to join multiplayer games hosted by someone with the "Full" install, but was not playable in single-player mode."

    Make sure you have the full version of Diablo1 installed and not shareware.

    Thanks for the reply, here is a little more info. I borrowed diablo 1 from a friend and played it for a while to see if I would like it. I really enjoyed the game and had no problems with it. I gave the game back to my friend and ordered the battle chest which comes with diablo 1. I somehow uninstalled diablo 1 and when I got the battle chest I reinstalled it and tried to play diablo 1 that is when I ran into this problem.

    I had been playing the full version before because it worked fine. But I uninstalled it accidentally and when I reinstalled it is when I ran into this problem. Thanks
