diablo 2 mod manager problems

Post by superwicked1 » Mon Jul 06, 2020 4:32 am

Hi
Im sure this has already been address somewhere but i am having a hard time finding answers.
I downloaded diablo 2 and diablo 2 lod from the blizzard website.Im trying to run diablo 2 escape from after life using d2se mod manager.When i click on the plugin for after life I get error "this file is application has encountered a critical error:
the file data is corrupt
program c:\diablo 2/d2se.exe
file c:\diablo 2\d2data.mpq
I can run the game normal and fine just starting diablo 2.Just cant run any mods from the plugy.
I tried all the windows compatibility options.
Again this is probably a easy fix just having a hard time

thank you and have a good day

Hi.

Usually what I do is.

Install the game, also from blizzard.

Then download
https://versionchanger.chaosmarc.de/

Extract, copy paste files&folders inside diablo II main directory.

Run version switcher, choose mpq fix, after that choose e.g. 1.13c version to be switched.

Edit - mpq fix is what you need to do to solve your problem.

Not sure do you need to switch to some version but I did it anyway. I guess I've decided that way because D2SE supports up to 1.13c max, just to be sure that D2SE installs smoothly :mrgreen:

Install D2SE, you already have it, though that should not be a problem at all.

Run video test and choose video mode you would like to use, e.g. Glide is very nice.

Try now, with D2SE ofc. :P
