On a more serious note you really need the launcher to work in a way where it doesn't mess with your standard d2 files before you make it mandatory. One can only have so many d2 installs at a time.

sorry, I was really busy the last 1-2 weeks, didn't see the post.

you don't need 2 d2 folders and launchers. you only need 1. you run the game trough the launcher, and the play button will still be there, so you click it again and the launcher will start a 2nd d2 instance.

rofl nice find

you can make the launcher use a custom d2 folder if you point it to the right folder in the settings, so you can have multiple instances of d2 up (it changes server reg though). but yeah, next version will remove median after uninstalling.

Haha :lol: That was way before I found bunch of issues, bugs and undocumented "features" of it. Also with v2.3 being WIP since like 50 years, we can pretty much say there will not be any release anymore, meaning these issues and bugs will never get fixed.

I can't answer if the launcher will support Plugy, but just wanted to let you know that the D2SE launcher still supports the current versions of Median, and also works with Plugy.

You could use that until it gets supported in the launcher (If it does)

On a related matter: Viperosa asked me to ask seltsamuel a question concerning the D2SE window and why it doesn't show the D2 icon.

Here's what he said (he answered me about a month ago, but I didn't check until now :D Just read the highlighted sentence.)

► Show Spoiler


So yeah, he's still working on it, and it's basically a total rework of the program. Maybe, MAYBE we can expect a new D2SE and you can turn back to being a young, hopeful whist :D

Please note that this is just a roughly translated version of what he actually said.

Yes, it's solved in the next version. It will be released some time before the ladder reset/patch. This time it will be released 100%.
