Re: How to change Charge-up skills of Assassin?

Frozen orb and meteor are composed of multiple missile.

The way it works is within missiles.txt
A missile can produce another missile(s) on several conditions depending on it's settings.

Re: How to change Charge-up skills of Assassin?

1. Requires some heavy code editing
2. Simpler txt - clone that skill and change the missile it produces.
3. You'd need to use code edition to remove the charge removal.
4 and 5 requires code.

Re: Designing engaging items.

Actually I find D3 design to be better - less wasted time on inventory management.

By tweaking item drops you can remove irrelevant stuff. D2 interesting item features, as you point out, make sense in the context of the ladder.

Its bad. Damage is already supposed to lead to higher magic find, as you kill faster.

Re: Nightmare fallens in normal mode

Yeah, i didn't explained myself clearly about "nightmare fallen", i ment that, the version of the monster (actually this is called "Dark one", but is the same monster) which is lvl 33, and deals a lot of dmg for a lvl 10-15 character.

Real difficultity levels

The other day I was trying to go back to grim dawn, then I read they un-did their respective nightmare and hell mode, but added additional acts. D3 also did that much earlier in 2.0 (albeit with a full numeric approach to difficulty) Well, we could have the best of both worlds, no? Allow fresh chara...

Re: Nightmare fallens in normal mode

Monsters spawn both from map pieces (fixed) and level generation (modified by settings). In normal monsters use level from monstats.txt - in nightmare and hell they use the area level. What exactly is a "nightmare fallen"? is it the lvl 33 version of the regular monster? Did you set these monster to...

Re: Quick game design question

There are a few ways to limit the amount of charms you can equip.

That being said, it's better to have few mods, because it increase variety - i.e. the player may want a charm with +lightning skill or the charm with attack speed.

Re: Quick game design question

I couldn't fully comprehend your question. If you want to make trash loot useless, just lower the values compared to good loot. i.e. a good drop completely overshadow them - the trash is fully a trash. If you make them good at some affixes (but having less) some people might not need the "good loot"...

Re: Formula not working?

1 - make sure the passive setting is correct i.e. there is a not repeated passive state
2 - make sure the skill's Param1 PAram2 or Param8 aren't empty or below 1
3 - make sure the skill function doesn't use the passive state for something else

Re: Hello,i want to know how to change character to demon?

The charm still gets unequiped on death.
The true way around this is what back to hellfire did... Basically a complicated animation edition and file change.

Or make the like the druid with a morph skill and all skills require the morphed state.

Re: Some questions on how to make Diablo a shorter game

Well - tweaking drops while making enemies weaker isn't the direction I want.

What I wanted was more akin to playing a sidescroller - I might solo or call a friend or two - then I defeat the game (5 acts) in one sitting of 1-2 hours.

Re: How to change the amount of attributes gained per point

The damage gained per Str and Dex are set for each weapon type on weapons.txt
If defense and attack rating gains per dexterity isn't set by code, you can set it it on charstats.
