New Death Screen Message? (LoD 1.14)

Post by DragonlorSCB » Wed Jan 09, 2019 5:45 am

Hi all,

I'm interested in changing the "You have died" message. It looks like it might be a .DC6 but I couldn't find anything in the MPQ files that seems like it would fit what I am looking for. Is there a way to change this message?

Thank you.

Have a look in the tbl files, IIRC it used a hardcoded string index in strings.tbl.

My attempts:
I opened up d2data.mpq with Ladik's mpq editor,

data -> local -> ui -> eng

Inside eng directory, I removed,

youdiedhardcore.dc6
youdiedinst.dc6
youdiedsoftcore.dc6

by removing those 3 files, I was able to remove "YOU HAVE DIED" message for 1.13c
