Re: iLvl > 99 Issues

So I take it iLvl cannot be increased beyond 127? So I'll have to adjust my iLvls and change the level req bit to 8 so I can keep requirements above 127. I assume that I need to cap my magic prefixes and suffixes at 127 as well? (with level requirements being higher) Does the iLvl cap effect Treasur...

iLvl > 99 Issues

So I have a mod that goes up to character level 200. Hell difficulty is levels 100+ and Elite items are generally all set to levels 100+. Elite items never drop which leads me to think there's an issue with items beyond level 99. Plugy won't list an iLvl over 99 which is probably just a limitation o...

That seems pretty easy. I'll give it a try this weekend when I have the time to look at it. Thank you.

Re: Transformed States and Casting

Where can I read up on how to clone the animation? I'm not even sure where to look. I do have the Animdata editor although I've barely touched it.

Transformed States and Casting

So I have a mod and a class that is capable of transforming into either a Succubus, Cantor or Vile Mother. While transformed into a Succubus or Cantor the character's casting frames are affected by effects that slow attack animations such as chilled (the Vile Mother's casting frames are unaffected)....

Re: DC6 Maker Issue

That image solved all my problems, thank you!

I was using DC6 Maker which wasn't able to read the 24 bit files but I saw you are using DC6 Creator. I downloaded that instead and it resolved all my issues.

Re: DC6 Maker Issue

I'm hoping to find a free image editor that will save it properly. I've attached an image of what it currently looks like in-game.

When I save it with Paint the colors take on a bluish tint and enough pixels turn black to render them transparent when DC6 Maker converts the image.

DC6 Maker Issue

What file format (and program) do I need to save images in for the DC6 Maker 3 program to properly adapt that image for use in Diablo 2? So currently the only way I've been able to create images and get them into my mod is to use good ol' MS Paint, save the image as a 256 color Bitmap and then use D...

Re: [Release] Ogodei's Diablo 1 Monster pack Final v1.3

Quick question for you Ogodei, I want to place some D1Succubus in the act 1 catacombs but I noticed that their damage was not scaling well for low levels. They were doing 200+ a pop. I dropped their damage to 1-2 for testing and they still did about 100 a hit (way too high for act 1 normal!). With f...

Level 127

So my idea was to allow character/monster/item levels up to 200 but I just realized that my character level reverts to level 127 when I reload the game. I'm guessing a lot of other things might also cap at level 127? In game I can go past it just fine but it'll just break when I reload the game. Is ...

New Ranged Javelin Skills

I've been tinkering with creating new skills. So far I've been using existing skills as a base to keep things simple. I want to create some ranged base javelin skills that release elemental attacks upon impact but I'm having trouble finding a skill to base it off of. Say I want Charged Bolts to be r...

Re: Question of the 1st step.

I'm certainly not an advanced modder so take this advice with a grain of salt. But one thing you could do is to edit the "necroskeleton" entry in MonStats.txt instead of having to edit the skill itself. Change the skeleton model and AI and any stats you want.

I noticed the Barb's mastery skills use the "passiveitype" field to designate what type of weapon the mastery effects. So "swor" for swords....

New Death Screen Message? (LoD 1.14)

Hi all,

I'm interested in changing the "You have died" message. It looks like it might be a .DC6 but I couldn't find anything in the MPQ files that seems like it would fit what I am looking for. Is there a way to change this message?

Thank you.
