Hello,

I just bought Diablo II + LoD on battle.net to be able to play this mod (it looks awesome!).

I've downloaded the version in this thread, but whenever I create a new character and start the game, I'm greeted by this :

Which stops the game and closes it whenever I close the dialog window.

My executables (Diablo II.exe, Game.exe) are both in XP2 Compatibility Mode, and in Administrator Startup Mode. I do not have any mod manager or anything else funky installed.

Some help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

You need to use our launcher to install the game if you are using D2 from battlenet: http://get.median-xl.com/launcher

The installation is even simpler that way - you install a fresh copy of D2, then install the launcher, then run it and it does everything for you.

Hey, thanks for the super fast reply! Cool. I didn't back up my original patch_d2.mpq file, do I have to do a clean install? Thanks in advance.

Should be fine either way, just install the launcher.

Dunno if it's the best place to write this but...

I just found my first trophy boss (Tran Athulua): i wanted to know what bonus it gives to the Sunstone or to the Sleep, but i can't find a trophy list with their effects at all in the documentation. I remember that there was a list with the old documentation...

I believe the TA trophy cubed with the sunstone charm from TA gives 5% DR I do not know what The Sleep does though.

Yeah for some weird reason they removed all the Trophy info from the new docs -.-

Have a look here: https://docs.median-xl.com/index_old.html

It's all still in the old docs. Be aware that they may have changed some of them.
