Make sure you have this, or else go download any text editor from the market, and try to open the Plugy.ini file.
It comes with NotePad. I can edit the text but I get "access denied" when trying to save the PlugY.ini file.

Join the crowd. After several clean installs of D2LOD using Stabby's install on page 1 every thing seems to work.
Can't do anything to PlugY Have other mods using D2SE and again can't make changes to PlugY.
Just loaded BFE with D2SE says PlugY-8 but no PlugY when you play. Working on.
Playing ES still get too many crashes and mercenary sticking. Gamble Filter and Preferences work.

it depends...what OS are you running???Are you trying to edit it in it's install directory???Make sure that Read Only is not checked when you open the file to see properties...

I'm running Windows 8 (against my choice). I had to edit the permissions of the PlugY file to edit it so I can do so now. However, it will not run stably. Either I get an error message with D2 crashing, or PlugY crashes, or certain parts fail to load. The es300launcher method never gave me an issue on Vista or XP. But with Windows 8, it won't even load.

I think I'll chalk this up as a lost cause right now.

Running on Win7, followed all the instructions. I can get it to start, but once I select a character I get an unhandled exception and crash. This only happens with Eastern Sun, the regular game runs fine.

Perhaps this will help.
Right click short cut, then compatibility.
1.DON'T check "run program in compatibility mode for:"
2. Check :Disable desktop composition"
3. Check :Disable scaling on high DPS setting"
4. Check: "Run as Administrator"
You will have standard round health and energy balls.
Map changes every time.
**Lets you use gamble filter.
** If saving/leaving game or to change character you need to go back to desktop and start from shortcut.
Pain in the bottom but it works.
I have Windows 7 Home Premium.
LOD version 1.12
Used Stabbys instructions.

I appreciate the reply, unfortunately it's a no-go. Same result.

A few more if you haven't done already
Did add to Start in \es300r don't use a back slash
Go to program files folder for es300r find game, right click, then compatibility. Make same as shortcut.
I also did it to game in diablo II folder.
Be sure to use shortcut for ES 300r V1.12
DONT use wide screen or any other shortcut.
It took me about six or seven clean downloads of Diablo 2 and LOD before it even work this well.
I have an old XP and it works but soooo slow.
Good luck.
EDIT: If all fails, you could try the mod Le Royaume des Ombres. The only problem there is that the dev is making massive changes. For balance and bugs. Any character made now wont be any good in update 6.00.
What I'm waiting on is Grim Dawn chapter 3 to be finished. You can play it as I have from the beginning, but started to get burnt out. When done, if ever it will no doubt be a super game. The Devs r putting their heart in it.

Has anyone else received any issues with the installer? Each time I've tried using it, it'll only install a small portion of the needed files. I've saved a copy of all the files prior to this happening, and yet when I put them into the es300r folder and start up the game, every time I create a character or click on an existing one, when I login in, the game crashes and comes up with the "unhandled exception" error code. The game worked before now I don't understand why it's not anymore :(

I've posted this on the Troubleshooting thread, but since I'm using ES 1.12, maybe I should post it here.....

Well, it's that time of the year: I re-picked up ES....for the 3729487293th time. Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to recover my old PK account, so I just created a new one. Also unfortunate: my old HDD crashed, so I'm starting from scratch. All those stockers......gone.

So, quick question: I'm playing Stabby's 1.12 version of ES (I can't seem to find that elusive mini-image, and my old LoD CD's went the way of the dodo; if anyone has the mini-image, it'd be appreciated), and the character screen has this annoying bug where I can only press the arrows to change page once. After that, when I click on them the page doesn't change and my character starts moving, as if the character screen wasn't there when I clicked on the arrow to change page. If I click on the arrows repeatedly, they sometimes work, but it's a pain. Is this a known bug?

Related to this: my character screen only has three pages. The 'classic' D2 page (with basic stats, skill damage, defense, AR, resists, etc); a page related to ele resists, max res, ele absorb, etc; and a page with other stats like DS, CB, mana and life steal/on kill/replenish/etc. Now, it's been at least a year and a half since I last played ES, but I distinctly remember it having more than 3 pages on the character screen. Is this a problem on my end? Is it a problem with the 1.12 version of ES? Or did ES never have more than 3 character screen pages?

Thanks a lot!

I installed the 1.10 ES on another PC and the regular ES character screen is there, with its multiple pages.
What the heck's going on with my 1.12 ES install? So weird...


EDIT: reinstalled to C:\Diablo2 , just to rule out any conflicts regarding install paths. Still the same problems.


EDIT 2: upon further investigation, the 'problem' is the statsinterface.txt located in (...)\es300r\PlugY. Perhaps it is because the 1.12 ES uses a different version of PlugY than the one used in 'regular' ES, one that has less Character screen pages?
I also narrowed down the fact that the arrow buttons to navigate the Character screen pages don't really work very well to the MultiRes mod; when I switched back to 800x600, they worked fine.

Hi Everyone,

I followed through the install instructions, struggled a bit with Win 7 compatibility, but ES mod wouldn't work for another reason. Into playing 5-15 mins, game crashes with message: UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: INT_DIVIDE_BY_ZERO (c0000094). I tried playing vanilla for couple of hours and everything went well. I suppose there may be some incompatibility with 1.12a patch and ES or something, as this seem to always happen on item drop (be it when I kill a monster or open stash). Therefore I would expect it might be some incosistency in drop calculator/item database/etc.

Anyone experienced this before or know how to fix?

Thank you!

Unfortunately the downloader for the digital version of Diablo 2 seems to have been updated to give you version 1.14B, so the opening post should probably be updated to remove the claim that this will work perfectly with it. As someone running Windows 10 64bit who only owns a digital copy of the game, is it even at all possible for me to get this mod working? It sounds fantastic and I'd love to try it out, but I'm just not sure HOW.

Well if you have diablo 2 installed with plugy in diablo II\plugy\cores there's all versions up until 1.13c just do a manual roll back.

Please repost manual install files. :OOO: :OOO: :OOO:

Ahh see here's what's cool. . .

The offline installer is a self extractor with those files. Gg.
