Almost a guaranteed no. Sigma's UI changes required Whist to rewrite much of the GUI engine. A lot of those engine changes also probably included other content related changes.

Honestly what you're looking for seems to just be vanilla with PlugY and D2Multires.

No, not really. D2Multires is good on paper, but it leaves the UI tiny on really large screens and the AI doesn't even operate at that screen size.

Also, they don't fix issues like the 256 sprite limit and whatnot.

All of these are things that Whist has fixed as far as I know.

Any thoughts on removing stamina from the game? Even Brevik has called this feature useless..

It was told million times already. Release date is not known, but there is high probability that if team will fix every major bug in the code, the next season will be Sigma, so about Christmas

An interesting perspectve: at median vets have advatage over newbies in terms of knowledge, equipement and skills, etc. As it should be. But at Sigma - everything - mechanics, skils, field tactics, monsters, equipement - will be mostly new experience for everyone.
