Help with Patch_D2.mpq and more...

Post by Bone Ace » Wed Aug 08, 2018 5:55 am

I have LoD 1.13 with PlugY and want to start adding new sets and uniques in the game.

When I extracted (or rather, tried to) Patch_D2.mpq there is no .txt or .tbl or .bin file, just a bunch of .xxx files (?) Is my Diablo files wrong or something?

Also, when I tried to add a new runeword, I basically just copied Ancient's Pledge to the end of Runes.txt, changed name to 'Runeword170', renamed it to 'Testing' (obviously), changed the runes required and added a new string to 'patchstring.tbl', as 'Runeword170' and 'Testing'. When I start the game (with the 'data' folder in the root directory of the game) and select a character, the game crashes with "Access Violation", with or without PlugY. What's wrong?

Also, when I tried to add a new unique, my UniqueItems.txt (opened with ASJ sheet editor) doesn't match with the unique item tutorial (by Doombreed/onyx). And I don't even have sets.txt even though I extracted both d2data.mpq and d2exp.mpq.

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

I think we have a better listfile for D2 here on the keep.

Hello :)

Try using the listfile provided here in order to open Patch_D2.

Text files have had a lot of changes since 1.10: therefore you are likely to crash if attempting to use a 1.10+ version with the "default" txt's from d2data and d2exp

Thank you both! Or rather, I can't thank you enough! My D2 modding is beginning!

Now I ran into some error. I made a unique sword, after a bunch of farming it dropped. I closed the game, went back out and edited its properties. And when I came back in the attached image happened. What is wrong? :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

The item's properties:
The Black Blade	0	1		1		85	90	7bs			1	6	5000	blac	blac						dmg%		400	400	 	aura	Concentration	20	20	oskill	Zeal	20	20	swing3		70	70	oskill	Sword Mastery	20	20	deadly		25	25	ignore-ac		1	1	all-stats		50	50																	0

Scratch that one. I misaligned the columns and screwed it. Edited it again but now the game shows "Unhandled exception" when I want to start it. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Nevermind. During the process I deleted one of the txt and forgot to replace it with the default one. Now the game starts normally again.
