Re: Sigma 1.2 Bugs & Feedback

In addition to my previous post regarding broken random mechanics in d2, apparently this obscure behavior is way more common than I initially thought. Every skill that constantly produces missiles is spoiled by it, e.g. Hive, Path of Flames, Beacon, etc. Here is another example: SrvDoFunc (skill) = ...

Sigma 1.2 Bugs & Feedback

I was working on the drop rate simulation model for d2 lately but then something interesting draw my attention. By the pure accident I found out that not all random is equally random, in some particular cases it might be heavily biased towards some specific predetermined initial Seed. I'm going to d...

Complaints and Grievances

How's this thread still alive? Exposing of intellectual property is a highly questionable reason, let me elaborate on this statement. The heart of this project D2Sigma.dll is valuable as a whole and not by some of its parts, by now it has size of a solid software library, it consists of more than a ...

a simple test about trophy drop rate in single-player

Drop chance is determined by the seed value from the monster that you've killed (e.g. Laz), however this seed is not some...

a simple test about trophy drop rate in single-player

OP, have you ever noticed that unique upgrade lottery recipe chance isn't the same that was mentioned in the docs for quite a long time? Does anyone else who's hunting the trophies ever noticed this change? It makes no sense that person with such a keen eye as you never noticed that. Well, you see t...

Character deleted, still visisble in folder

Don't want to be that guy OP, but your character is gone and there is nothing you can do about it. This particular error means that d2s signature (first 4 bytes from the the save file) is missing, which leads me to the conclusion that your save file is empty as well. Looks like your PC crashed right...
