Why use this instead of the original game?

Why use this instead of the original game?
It can be run under Windows 7.

Compatibility - run in 256 colors.
Voila

It can also be run with DosBox, but it still is the old game.
With CorsixTH you can get a much bigger screen size in-game, new languages, ability to zoom in or out, make own maps easily, and more.

When I used dosbox the colours looked strange... I had to use 256 colours.

I got the same problem with the colors, even 256 colors make it look abnormal.

Another reason for using CorsixTH!

Major draw for using CorsixTH over DosBox or other emulation techniques is:

A) Resolution. Hell if they rerelease diablo II with updated display support, I would still be playing with buddies
B) Newer OS compatibility. A bit obnoxious to be opening and using emulation software just to play a classic game.
C) I am learning C at the moment and want to eventually get involved at some point, although unlikely.

Super thanks to all the dev on this project and I would love to throw some beer money your way!

You were using 256 with compatability mode, so all the more reason to use corsixth then!

I can run CTH in native mode under Linux. Try that with the original program :p
