i have made a new monster in act 1 blood moor
added in patchstring.tbl everything fine in game as it should be.

the path for patchstring should be data\local\lng\eng\patchstring.tbl (if you mod the ENG version, ofc)

yes, this is the location i have been using
i just don't understand why patchstring.tbl is working as -direct -txt
and when i copy the new patchstring.tbl to patch_d2.mpq its not working.

It is a bit difficult to shoot into dark, but lets try it:

1. are you using the patchstring.tbl from d2exp or patch_d2?
2. how do you pack the tbl into mpq? do you use the .bat script or tool?

i am using patchstring.tbl from patch_d2.mpq (and it works fine with -direct -txt)
then i insert the patchstring.tbl with winmpq into patch_d2.mpq (with Diablo lod compatibility settings as i always did with everything else in the past)
starting game without -direct -txt and then when i look at the monster "an evil force".
its a new monster i have created.
added lines to monstats.txt monstats2.txt levels.txt treasureclass.txt
made cof lines placed in animdata made new token and everything works as it should its just the name,
i don't know what i have done wrong.

EDIT: patch 1.13c
