I've been looking to join the game and this recent patch gave me the drive to actually follow through with it. I'm going to enjoy Median XL in a more casual way, at least from the beginning. If everything goes well, I'll try to finish the content.

Update: The data for the Necromancer build has been lost unfortunately. I switched to a new computer and had too many issues getting it to work, so it's going to be the end for that series. I am going to resume another series through livestreaming every Thursday hopefully, you can find the livestream link down below.

Enjoyed the video, your production quality is very good.

If you find the run speed too fast feel free to switch to walking. The base walking speed was improved compared to vanilla and it's intended that most characters walk throughout the game (defence is ignored by D2 if you're running). Also the mouse wheel skill scroll is working, maybe the skills have to be bound & manually selected at least once to work, not sure.

Looking forward to the next videos, I'm very much interested in such first impressions content.

I enjoyed the video. Fun stuff and thank you for sharing.
I'm a new player myself so I can relate to your excitement.

I had no idea that defence was ignored while running, guess I'll walk from now on. I assumed that the speed was to account for the faster actions of the new enemies. I thought it was a way to change the gameplay and make it play out faster.

Yeah, the scroll wheel doesn't at all, regardless of what I do. I'm getting used to it slowly though.

Defense is ignored while running? I didn't even realize that.
Cue the Homer Simpson "D'oh!" sound. It makes sense now. LOL
My rat trap Druid gets hit a lot as I run all over despite my higher defense.

With 1.12d blizzard somehow achieved the skill wheel not working anymoreon newer systems. I haven’t played with wheel ever since. But they fixed it in newer version. Maybe compatibility mode for windows XP SP3 helps you out + admin mode. Then check your controls in the game and see whether you can use the wheel to scroll down in the „assign hotkeys“ list. If it works there, it should work anywhere so check in the list if scrolldownand scrollup is selected for changing skills and change if it isn’t.

Yeah basically what HechtHeftig said. Someone else had this issue a while back and the solution was on the internets.


Make sure you are running d2 in compatibility mode. To do this right click D2 and go to properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and tick the box that says "Run in compatibility mode" and in the drop down box choose Windows XP (Service Pack 3).

Then create a game and to go Options > Configure Controls - Scroll down to "Select Previous Skill" click it and then scroll the wheel down and it should replace it, then do the same with "Select Next Skill" and scroll the wheel up. Then click accept.

Neoblizztard achieved next level of fixing mastery by temp banning for using scroll with skill switching.

Got the scroll working. Had to use the D2 LOD shortcut instead of the Median one. Simple binding let me use it.
