New Location and Name for the TFW Forum

Now that TFW: Awakening is gathering steam, it isn't really just the Ancients forum any more. Also, with DeathScythe and SilenTx perennially absent, I really have the ball in my court. So the forum is changing: Name - The Fury Within: Ancients & Awakening Category: Senior Staff Mods Or you can just ...

Myhrginoc is Away on Business Until 1/26

I leave today for a week of equipment testing and no time for Internet. If you have any forum concerns, please contact one of the senior staffers. I won't have any new releases or updates on my plugins or mod effort until after the first weekend in March.

No Mapháck Discussion!!

It seems all the posts we make about mapháck and Part XV of the Terms of Service continue to go by certain people. We don't like getting heavy-handed, but rules are rules and we insist they be followed. If the temptation is irresistable, there are other boards where the staff is less concerned about...

Not a Mod, Is it?

This thread has left the bounds of mod making. I am not sure where I would put it, since it isn't really General Diablo 2 Discussion either. I do appreciate the humor, but I am afraid I have to lock it down. I don't know how to move a thread to an OT forum, if that is even possible.

Which .txt files don't work right without d2excel besides runes? Any txt file that doesn't have its last column already filled in. MS Excel tends to gobble trailing tabs.

You might look at the sticky threads in Code Editing, and do some searching in there and on the old board in Code Editing. If the values carry across, those sources might help. Just remember when actual code is quoted in those posts, Intel reads a dword backwards from Motorola. If you had a dword nu...

That is a generic fault, it comes from deep within the Windows system and can be caused by many many problems. I have generated those when I write a value where Windows was expecting a pointer, so it goes beyond Diablo 2. What was in the debug file? You should have seen a pair of lines where it tell...

I don't know what you were worried about, Deathfile, you were already past the hard part of my name! ;) Kneeko, it is okay to feel daunted when you are just starting out, and compare feeble beginner's steps to the likes of Sanctuary in Chaos or the BG Mod. Heck, I feel that way myself a bit, since I...

And if this moderator feels compelled to change a non-descriptive title, he will...the new title will be descriptive of the thread, and perhaps unflattering too.

This is the thread you already have going on the problem. Please refrain from posting multiple threads. For one thing, the error you mention is outlined in more detail in that thread.

Lastly, open up expansionstring.tbl and do a search for "[/b]Weapons:[/b]" (colon included) this will zip you along to the StrGemX lines (there are 4) Since Gloves are sharing Weapons, then you should change it to " Weapons / Gloves: ", change "Torso:" to " Torso / Belts: " and "Shields:" to " Shie...

The best way to avoid getting yelled at is to see if you can find answers for questions that have already been asked.

Search the new and old forums for discussions on ItemRatio.txt and TreasureClassEx.txt, that is where you can adjust the drop ratios for the various grades of equipment. You can change the gamble percentage too, but that is a DLL change.
