That being said, the orignal is all but gone on the commercial servers. If you do play it, be sure to take  time and consider how much time can actually change a product under corporate direction. Its a testament to the faults and strengths.

Question to any of those who might still play retail.. I haven't played since shortly after Trammel. I know there are classic shards, but I'm not really interested in those. My question is - Did they ever give the game better resolutions besides 1024x768 in Full Screen mode? Any 16:9 / 16:10 resolutions?

the game is nothing like it was.  They now have insurable items so you can't loot them, and special armor that gives bonuses like not needing regs to cast and crap like that.  Other than the dated graphics you will not recognize the game if you played before 2001

the missing link in a chain of destruction.

All spelling and typographical errors are based soely on the fact that i just dont care. If you must point out my lack of atention to detail, please do it with a smile.
