I also get these exceptions from time to time. Usually when I am in lobby and try to enter chat the game would crash with that error. It usually happens when my connection is lagged. Sometimes it crashes that way and when I reenter game, music is disabled so I have to enable it again.

There is also a topic about it on bnet.

I too have been having alot of problems since yesterday. I've reinstalled the game now so we'll see how long it takes for another bug or crash to present itself. Yes it is very laggy even after reinstall. Overall i've lost probably 15 hours of gametime with the crashes and rollbacks, resulting in quests, items and levels gone. At this rate i'm doomed to be stuck in normal, one more instance and i'll simply have to uninstall til blizz fixes these new bugs.

Sorry to rant so much, but i've been spending my two days off playing and expected to be in hell by now. :(

I had the same problem a while ago.

Random crashes and it crashed EVERY time I went to maggot's level 3 :rant:

It turned out one of my RAM blocks where faulty..

This is just to tell you that it might not be your diablo which is "causing" the error.

I'm getting the same problem, but dont you dare e-mail blizzard about this. I did, and they accused me of using "maphack, which is a thrid-party program, and you should remove it right away!" Funny, I dont and never had mh...anyways, I hope they fix this soon. I'm getting the problem more and more, and if its not that stupid Diablo II Error, I just get disconnected every 30 seconds in the game. I turned off my firewall and antivirus, same problem.

Help us out guys. :thumbsup:

try and defragment the drive containing the d2 folder, it might be a jam in the directory or something

and if all else fails, format! =P

I have found that this happens only when i copy and paste a game name to join while waiting or talking etc.
Yes that happens to me also. C/P game name, try to enter game, c0000005 error and I have to force-close d2.

this happens tome when im in a game
it stopped for a while
but it keeps doing it again now, and its really annoying
i spent like 30 minutes trying to get to the countess
finally get to lvl 5 and it crashes again.
i already reinstalled earlier too
i dont wanna do it again because downloading the patch takes me like 2 hours
