Re: really enerving error, help'd be quite appriciated

Is this is occuring on a 100% fresh install of the game (not counting official blizzard patches) then one possibility I can think of is a corrupted file in d2data.mpq or d2exp.mpq. If you are using any modification, of any form at all, then that could be causing the problem (although this isn't like...

I know that you'r anxious to get an answer, but please try to avoid double posting to bump your post.

Unfortunatly in a situation like yours, people may not have the time, or the resources (in this case, Hellfire) to help you out.

Re: A Great tool for making d2-like missile and overlay GFX.

Well, I've only been using the lite trial of it so far (very very very excellent and cool tool) but you can export the animation to individual BMP's, which can then be combined into a gif file, and converted into a DCC for use in D2 or you can export it as an AVI file, which can be opened in some gi...

Re: I feel the essence/core of Diablo has been lost.

For the most part, I agree. I loved playing the original D2 before LoD came out, I still remember my days on B.net playing it :) I feel the gameplay in D2 is damn good, I love it. But it gets monotonous and boring going to the same areas to kill the exact same monsters over and over and over... (3 y...

Re: How many spoilers are enough?

The first mod I was working on, I mentioned a few neat features I had, but kept the really cool things to myself, or just gave very vague descriptions of them. Telling people a few features that make your mod unique is good, but if you tell them everything, then there's nothing left to discover. Mos...

Re: InGame Item graphics?

Short answer: Yes, it is possible. Long answer: It is quite difficult and time-consuming to create one, but it's alot easier than trying to make new character animations :D You'll either need to be knowledgable in 3D-modelling, or one hell of a good 2d artist :) But don't let that get you down, if y...

Re: color texture

NOTE: Before trying any of these, you might want to try adjusting your gama/constrast video settings in D2 (also, running if your running in windowed mode while testing, try running fullscreen as a quick test) And a note on JPG's vs BMP's, JPG is a lossy format, which means compression is used on th...

Re: Skill graphics...

Animation Shop is really not geared towards D2 animation editing unfortunatly as volf said, as it has lots of problems, and takes a LOT of meticulous boring extra work to get some animations working with it. I suggest Gemani Movie gear, as it's the one used in the animation editing tutorial, and the...

Re: Skeleton Shield Arrows

Well, in monstats2.txt, under the skeleton entries (which are the first couple) the SHv column controls which type of shield to spawn a skeleton with. It randomly chooses one of the entries under that column as the animation to load for that skeleton. eg/ The game randomly chooses to load the skelet...

I'll just go through the general process for adding a new monster into the game: (this applies to single part monsters) You add the DCC files to Data/Global/Monsters/(TOKEN)/TR You then add the COF files to Data/Global/Monsters/(TOKEN)/COF NOTE: (TOKEN) in your case would be $P You then add the appr...

Their is a modified d2gfx.dll plugin somewhere on the keep for just that. Also I think Yohann's Plug-Y allows that as well, but for that one I'm really not sure.
