Greetings Diablo 2 LOD enthusiasts . . . I'm experiencing severe lag (from 5 to 8 seconds when descending/entering areas other than the open areas in D2LOD, such as The Forgotten Tower, the Jail levels, etc. The problem is if there are demons waiting at the bottom of the stairs I get killed before I get to move. In other words, while the lag is occurring, I'm stuck and the demons attack and kill me.
I've never had this happen before and wonder if it is server lag.
BTW, I have a great cable connection and have played D2LOD on this computer before with no problem. Oh, and if I open a portal on those levels the program locks up and I have to force it to quit. My platform is an Mac book pro, OS 10.6.8.
