That could be the problem. You might try the following and see if it helps.
  1. Make a subdirectory for the mod (e.g. C:\Program Files\Diablo II\EftA).
  2. Move all the mod files to the subdirectory. (See the readme.txt file for which ones.) Restore the original clean patch_D2.mpq and dlls to the Diablo II directory.
  3. Download our Mod Running Scripts and put them in the EftA directory.
  4. In the subdirectory, make a new subdirectory called data. In this new directory, make one called local (you end up with C:\Program Files\Diablo II\EftA\data\local
  5. Download the English TBL package and extract the USE file, put it in the ...\data\local directory. (The USE file is a one-byte binary file with 00 as the value, if you know how to make this in a hex editor, and save it without an extension.)
  6. In Windows Explorer, double-click on the Launch Mod script. Answer both questions with NO (the default) always. The launcher always runs -direct so it will use the external USE file first.

Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

I have / had the German version.
For most mod it worked for me to overwrite the German d2game.dll with the English one.
I don't know if this fixes this problem but I played EftA with no problems. Still a great mod :)
