WARNING: Use at your own risk. Using -direct mods in conjunction with Median XL can result in strange occurrences.

Have you been playing Diablo 2 for ten years and get droopy-eyed every time you visit a vendor? Do you still harken back to the glory days of Godly Plate of the Whale?

Relive them (at least a little bit) with these mods!

These graphical mods for Diablo 2 replaces stock item graphics with their Diablo 1 equivalent or similar.

VERY MINIMAL editing has occurred. Some of the items are slightly off-center and a few are strangely small. The only editing I did was getting rid of true black pixels to get rid of holes in the item. There was some minimal color editing as well to get each item as close to its Diablo 1 counterpart as I could while staying within the aesthetics of 2.

All armors and weapons added by Median XL were either custom graphics or uniques in the base Diablo 2 game. Therefore, those are completely unchanged.

ARMOR



► Helmet Replacement
► Armor Replacement
► Shield Replacement
► Alternate Ancient Armor, Great Helm, Kite Shield
► Another Ancient Armor Replacement


WEAPONS



► Sword Replacement
► Axe Replacement
► Mace Replacement


JEWELRY AND MISCELLANY



► Jewelry
► Scrolls, Catalysts and Class Charm

Most item sounds are identical between D1 and D2, and those that aren't are unable to be changed (for example, axes in D2 use the same soundset as swords so the killer axe sound from D1 would be impossible to use without screwing up all sword sounds).

Besides, D2's audio files are WAY higher quality.

Very very nice! Did you make this yourself?
BTW, I remember that the Breast Plate graphic actually was that small in D1.

Yessir. I would make a pack for all D1 armor and weapons, but some bits (rings and early game helmets especially) look horrible in Diablo 2 and there's too many weapon variations between the games. The body armors work surprisingly well :)

I guess the breast plate graphic is PROPORTIONAL to the rest of the armor, but it sure does look funny...

I counted and there's 9 base shields in Diablo 2, and eight unique shield sprites in Diablo 1.

Stay tuned, gang. . .

ps: the sound of the basic "cap" is weird :D, on D1 is a metalic sound but on D2 stay like leather ;-|.
