comment How can I get Diablo II to run on Windows 7?
Can you or someone else elaborate on this solution? I've downloaded both the D2 and D2:LOD clients from Battle.net, and neither of them 'do' anything - running Installer.exe and clicking on "Play" from either does nothing at all.

Um, I played my barb tonight under patch 2.0.3.22427, and I assure you, the Bloodstained Letter most certainly is still a requirement for the Primary Sources achievement.

Fair enough. I'm bugged, except that the quest is not bugged per Blizzard. Sigh. Perhaps I'll see you on Battle.net one day and get the achievement from one of your games fbueckert...

I've seen tons of Dead Guardsmen, but from what I read elsewhere there can be either zero or one Dead Soldier per level. Are you seeing more that one Dead Soldier per level?
