    It seems like it would probably work with the Mac version too. Just download D2DX, put glide3x.dll in your Diablo II folder, and add -3dfx to your PlugY.ini file after Param= so it looks like Param=-3dfx.

    Hey no problem, so that file is here: https://github.com/bolrog/d2dx/releases look for the d2dx.zip. Unpack the contents in your D2 folder or your plugy mod folder if your playing plugy.

  • -w -nofixaspect will change your screen to remove black bars on the sides of your game window.

    The issue with this is it's not true widescreen, as you said. It just stretches 4:3 to 16:9. To get true widescreen you'd need to run resolution mods such as this one: https://github.com/bolrog/d2dx/releases

    I use this one (it works with PlugY and d2 1.14d). There were a few tricks that I had to do to make it work (place files in Plugy folder, remove -w -noaspect and other things I think). The only thing is that I can't make it work in windowed mode without my Monitor blinking every time (like it changes sources): https://github.com/bolrog/d2dx

    I'd like to change my answer to D2DX as others have suggested. It's amazing. Unlocks FPS, widescreen, windowed borderless, it looks amazing. I feel like I'm now playing D2R with retro graphics toggled.
