I can verify that Starcraft is dx5-based.. I have been playing it since
_way_ before dx7 was out.. As for D2, i think it is dx7, but it can be
run in either ddraw or d3d.. IIRC, it works fine in ddraw, but the
video test fails to find a valid d3d mode, so it forces you to run in
ddraw. If we could get it to work in d3d, that would be great, but I
should also add that D2 isnt very popular anymore (due to cheating,
etc), so it isnt a big priority to me anyways, but if needed, I could
test out progress, provided I can find my original CD's..
P.S. I also have a copy of sacifice, and messiah, so if testnig is
needed with either of those, let me know and i will start submitting
bugs to the db for those..
P.P.S. I will eventually get around to testing all of the windows apps
I have and having bugs reported for each one, so I will eventually get
sc, d2, sac, and mess. reported, but i need some time to play around
with some other apps first.. Benchmarking is my #1 priority right now
(as seen by all of the benchmarking bugs on the 'zilla).
