A new patch is released. I have been working hard on rebuild lost code, so this patch contains alot that was released in pre alpha version that I had to recode. There is a number of issues found in pre-alpha version that have been fixed, diablo 2 log will no longer be huge due to animation errors, also a bug with bodyparts was found that fixed two bugs in one. So, now you are able to both save the game and also see what organs can be used to.

This patch is developed by Kingpin and Ogodei.

Lets go over to the patch notes.

Note: This is a standalone patch so previous patch is not required to run this.
