If you are bored of MXL (like me), the sanest thing you can do is try out different mods for the time being. There is life outside of Median. I mean MXL is hands down the best mod I have played and I will return to it upon the release of 2017.


You would think that, but you start to play the game completely different anyways, a lot fo the instagib mechanics you either weren't ready for in the first place and shouldnt have gone in there, but a lot of the time its actually not as bad as most people think... but you still have rubber banding and connection issues now and then.

Donating means you support the server. So if you're playing mp then yes, it is worth it. Plus you get trader gold, which you can trade for items on the server.

Donating actually helps everything MXL related, period. That includes, and is not limited to, the realms, the sigma project, the forums, etc. Donations are basically used to push the MXL project further. This can include some future projects the community doesn't even know about yet.

That is, if you love the mod, the community, the sigma project, it is surely worth donating.

Thank you sir, for the response. I know about sigma for some years now, but forgot about it, since no updates on it were released. Just wanted to make sure it still is your goal to work on it and release it. Thank you for confirming it.

Sigma not, but the latest Median version has a bunch of stuff from Sigma, and the new version coming soon will have even more (plus it will have corpses spawning in the town so SP will be even better than before).

System requirements are very low (like 15+ years old). Google D2 system requirements.

what is the 'new version' u said? this? https://forum.median-xl.com/viewtopic.php?t=6211
so i will go away in about 1 month from now, and wanna download the lastest ver, will this new ver be release in time or should i be satisfied with the current M17? tbh I got bored of the old ultimative and hope the one i would get this time is as different from ultimative as possible. also about the requirements, sigma gonna have that same requirements with so many upgrades in both graphics and play?

Yes, that is the new version he was referring to. M17 1.1 will be released in about 3 weeks, so you should be able to get it in time before leaving. With the implementation of new areas, the summoning uberquests gone and the skills rework, I think you can expect it to be quite different from the present version. As for Sigma it'll certainly have an increased resolution and a more colorful and detailed UI so, even with only this two differences, you could expect a slight increase in resources needed to run the game; but nowadays such small increase probably has to be considered negligible... of course devs could dispute what I've written if it happens to be incorrect
