Does that mean some earlier new cores policy (Marco's quote below) have changed or temporary just till Sigma release?

D2SE and PlugY will probably still work on M2017, however they will be fully incompatible with sigma's core. For this reason, we will no longer provide support on using these with Median XL Launcher, which will be the default way to run Median 2017.

One feature im still missing is Play button after new patch updates are released, when you are connected to internet and opened launcher UPDATE button doesnt allow you to play without updating to new patch and you must be offline to dodge UPDATE and see PLAY button. Thats not so important but pushing you to do some unnecessary stuff like disabling net at starting Launcher.

Thanks for new release.

in case anyone else had/has this problem.. after my xl launcher downloaded the new version i had to go into settings and click to run in windowed mode before it would launch without critical error. I had it set to launch it windowed mode before, but not through the actual xl launcher settings (iirc)

Cores:
No changes. We wanted to have PlugY in the Launcher from the start, but it was tricky to make it work, and I figured it out just recently, that's why I added it only now. Whist plans to add shared stash and multiple stash pages support eventually in Sigma, just not in v1.0.

Old versions:
Hah, didn't think someone was using that. You are using to to play some older version? What version (curious, since I discontinued support for pre-M2017 versions)?

I'm planning on adding a "no update" option in setting in the next version, precisely for this reason. I just didn't get around to adding it in this version.

For anyone getting crashes when save & exiting on SP, uninstall any PlugY versions you installed previously, and use the one from the Launcher.
Also, PlugY doesn't work on the server (it never did). I'll probably add a warning about that in the next version.

Thanks for clarification.

Not playing pre-M2017 versions, Im sitting atm on 1.3.1 just to be able necroknifing ;) on sp (gave up this hc season on realm due to connection problems on my side) but dodged earlier also 1.2 for few days when it was released to test few things before updating, so thats why mentioned it tonight with missing Play button.

Hi all, I played MXL this morning via launcher and everything worked. Now as I wanted to start it again it says "access vioaltion.."
I found out that the game DOES start when I deactivate PlugY. Activating it stops the game from starting again. Tried various fixes now , also redownloaded all files etc. Any ideas?

I'm not sure if it's mentioned on here or not, but I finally solved my issue of not getting the Launcher to work on my new laptop. The problem was that all of my files were being put onto Onedrive instead of an actual desktop. Here is a little picture guide to changing the settings, incase it happens to anyone else.

Image

Step 1: click on the onedrive icon
Step 2: click on the 3 dots (or possibly a gear/wrench icon) and click on settings
Step 3: click on the auto save tab and then change all 3 dropdown boxes to "This PC only"
Step 4: Move Diablo II folder to desktop (my personal preferance) or wherever you keep yours that isn't in the onedrive location and program files.

Two bugs:

1. While game is open click X to close launcher, it shows this error:
► Show Spoiler


2. In settings window click on "Median XL Launcher 0.3.1" link at the bottom, shows this error:
► Show Spoiler


Suggestion: add option to minimize launcher to tray.

Edit: and another suggestion - add option to disable automatic change of compatibility setting on start added in last version. This is useful for people who don't know how to set it up, but I already have it and having to change it back to my settings every time I start launcher is annoying. Probably XP compatibility is more stable, but it doesn't crash for me with win vista/7 compatibility mode (including on closing game) , and xp compatibility fucks with my setup for recording D2 gameplay.
