The Median XL launcher overwrites the vanilla game D2 LOD. I can not play the vanilla game anymore. Kindly please update the Median XL Launcher to be able to switch back to vanilla D2 LOD?

Iirc, both D2 and the Launcher need admin privileges, so try setting that for both and see if that helps. Also, the current version of the Launcher no longer supports WinXP, so that may be why nothing is happening if you're trying to run it in XP compatibility mode.

I was wanting to get a confirmation of the post a few posts up. Does running/using the launcher override vanilla/other d2 mods. Or is there a way to switch between the two?

It overrides it, copy your D2 folder to another location and point launcher there, then you can play both (you'll probably need also 2 different registry files to switch between different realms)

Yo guys, ive decided to try to run the game on my laptop; i haven't played the mod since last year so i thought i could try a new build and look for the new things added, while waiting for Sigma.
I've installed the game, and everything went smooth on the 2nd try (i've installed the vanilla game in the first try, and the mod wouldn't install with the launcher like you warned).
I just wanted to ask a thing: using the launcher with Plugy in single player, can i also add the D2stat for the item filter? I wish I could use the filter since my laptop has a tiny screen.

Thanks for the answer people. This community has always been very kind with me.

Is there a guide or an easy tutorial on dealing with the registry files?

download both, unpack and execute corresponding .reg file if you want to switch games
TSW registry file: http://tsw.median-xl.com/registry.zip
Battle.Net registry file: http://tsw.median-xl.com/BattleNet.zip

there may be other keys in the registry, run regedit and check this path: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Blizzard Entertainment\Diablo II
possible important keys:

Code: Select all

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Blizzard Entertainment\Diablo II]
"Save Path"="c:\\Games\\MXL\\save\\"
"InstallPath"="c:\\Games\\MXL"


so you may have to edit (notepad) those .reg files and add "Save Path" at least (with correct path depending where you have it installed)
you can also export current Diablo II key

FYI: there's also a nice GUI utility to set D2 path: https://yadi.sk/d/A5tDdxwgqN9TY
