In singleplayer movies are played when you meet Lazarus and when you defeat Über Diablo.

To get XP from Diablo, you must save after he dies, but before the movie starts.

Skipping game movies[edit | edit source]

You can use one of the following ways to skip a in game movie:

  • As soon as it starts, press Alt-Tab. This will bring you out to your Windows desktop. Now either press Alt-Tab again until you get back to Diablo, or click on Diablo on the Task Bar.
  • Rename (or move) the file 'Smackw32.dll' found in the game folder. It is the file that plays the movies in the game. It will also result in that you will not be able to see the introduction movies.
  • Run CableCat's downsize-diabdat.bat. This will remove the movies from the data file.


Diablo: The Hell is a free modification of Diablo: Hellfire. It features many minor improvements and bug fixes, which combined greatly enhances the players experience over the original game. If you are thinking about replaying the original Diablo, try Diablo: The Hell instead. Start by reading the getting started guide.
