Any game with server side data save would like to have a word with you and Sigma is not an exception (TSW), good luck using CE there
except single player mode in diablo 2 is entirely client side.
also, have you ever heard of this character editor for vanilla diablo 2 called Hero Editor? iirc it only works on single player character files and there is absolutely NOTHING server sided when it comes to those files.
this Median XL Offline Tools v0.5.1 program is also only for single player mode which is 100% offline. except, compared to hero editor it has pretty much...nothing of real use in regards to character editing. well, not much you couldn't already do in-game.
also, median xl isn't some entirely separate game from diablo 2. it is a mod for diablo 2 and it is not entirely server sided. i'm not asking for the ability to edit multiplayer characters however i want. i'm asking for the ability to do so with offline single player characters that are 100% client side when it comes to data.
you know what i usually do when a dev or other people try to force me to play a game how they THINK i should play it instead of how i WANT to play it? unless it's a game i really enjoy...i drop it on the spot as i don't support such BS. there is absolutely nothing wrong with cheating in OFFLINE SINGLE PLAYER mode when doing so affects no one except yourself.
i'll probably always like diablo 2 but neither you nor laz nor anyone else have ANY say in how I choose to play in offline single player mode. because that's not a choice you get to make for people other than yourself.
