The color depth is 16 or 32 bit? I hope that it isnt 256!
If its at least 16 bit, we can add units with awesome gfx.

Back to putting the thread on its tracks

Looking again at the D2 screenshots, IMHO the problem with the graphics come from the units sprites : they look pixellated even from somewhat afar, as if the bitmaps were quite (too) small...

To get a better aspect they should be doubled in pixel size...But this involves redoing the 500+ units sprites !
Unless the gfx are moddable (in external common format files) to allow fans to do them I don't expect Illwinter to be able to do it quickly ... but maybe I'm wrong (who am I to doubt ) ?
