Will Snow Leopard run Diablo 2 with this Mac?:

Mac Product Guide: 13-inch MacBook/2.4GHz (black) | Macworld

I haven't changed any of the specs on it.
Will it run?

According to the Snow Leopard compatibility list, Diablo 2 is compatible:

So, my drivers and integrated gfx card won't stop the game from opening? I mean, I was always able to download it, but I could never open it. It quits unexpectedly, and people say this is because of the drivers from Leopard or something along those lines.

Be careful with your terminology! In your original post you were concerned about Snow Leopard compatibility (OS 10.6)...now in your post above you mentioned "Leopard" (OS 10.5).

Beyond this...I don't really understand what you're talking about above.

Your original question was about was Diablo 2 compatible with OS 10.6. That question was already answered...Diablo 2 is compatible with Snow Leopard according to the Snow Leopard compatibility list.

I'm saying, does the OS determine whether or not you can play the game? I'm on Leopard at the moment, and it won't even open the game after it's installed.
People have said that the AppleIntelGMAX3100 drivers are the reason Diablo 2 won't open with Leopard.

Does Snow Leopard use different drivers?

I want to know whether or not my gfx card is the problem, or if my OS is.

Edit:
I'm on Leopard right now, and I want to know why D2 is going to run on Snow Leopard, but not Leopard.

I have Diablo 2 installed on one of my computers that's running OS 10.5 Leopard...and Diablo 2 runs just fine...no problems!

I don't know why Diablo 2 is not running on your computer with 10.5 installed.

As far as 10.6...the Snow Leopard compatibility list says that Diablo 2 is compatible with OS 10.6.

So the bottom line is...Diablo 2 is compatible with both OS 10.5 & 10.6.

Good luck,

- Nick

Edit: Remember...Diablo 2 is a game that was first released around the 1999-2000 timeframe. To be able to run a almost 10 year old game on the newest or much newer Macintosh hardware may be expecting alot! Something to consider.

On your Leopard OS, are you using the AppleIntelGMAX3100 drivers?

No...the computer I'm running OS 10.5 on does not have X3100 graphics hardware.

Like I said: 10 year-old game + newer hardware = sometimes a bad combination

Well, if I buy Snow Leopard, am I going to be using the same drivers as I am now?

If so, what hardware upgrade would I need to get drivers that would work with applications now, and Diablo 2?

I've tried using those drivers. I followed a guide on how to install them and put them into place and such.

However, when I went to reboot my Mac with those drivers, my Mac froze at the white screen.

Do you have any idea on how to get those working?
