Diablo 2 Resurrected feature

Diablo 2: Resurrected Patch 2.4 released, adds Legacy Graphics Emulation

Blizzard has released a brand new update for Diablo 2: Resurrected. According to the team, this latest update brings major balance tweaks and changes to almost every class. Moreover, it packs a number of AI tweaks, and adds a new Legacy Graphics Emulation option.

Legacy Graphics Emulation sports 3 different emulation options for the Legacy game graphics. The options are ‘GDI’, ‘Glide’, and ‘Resurrected’.

  • ‘GDI’ emulates the software rasterization of the original legacy game and does not apply any filtering
  • ‘Glide’ emulates the hardware-accelerated backend of the original legacy game with bilinear filtering
  • ‘Resurrected’ uses the Glide emulation with additional fixes in place to address an artifact that would occur with the original Glide rendering

The Glide Mode will undoubtedly put a smile on the face of every 3DFX fan.

Alongside these legacy options, Update 2.4 brings some performance optimizations. For instance, it optimizes particle effects on some console platforms. It also optimizes inventory quick-move actions to reduce delay. Furthermore, it adds a VFX quality option for PC players, as well as a VRAM usage bar in the settings menu.

As always, Battle.net will download this patch the next time you launch its client. You can also find its complete changelog here!
