Well basically I found out a fix to the color bug in Diablo 1. If you are running Windows 7 like myself, just goto your task manager and end explorer.exe, then through the task manager, browse your C drive and find the folder where you installed Diablo 1, and run Diablo.exe. your game should be fine and have no color issues whatsoever. if you want to get your desktop explorer back just run explorer.exe again after you exit the game.
also I have my Diablo.exe to run as administrator so be sure to do that so you can connect to battle.net and download the latest patch.
but yeah I am still down for Diablo 1 online so let me know if you are able to play the game fine and we can start killing old school Diablo
after reading Book of Cain and generally just being hyped by the release of DIablo 3, I'm deciding to play through the last 2 games starting with D1. i'd rather play online with others than single player. if you are interested please reply!
