I've tried downloading the game client from battle.net but when I try to startup the game I'm prompted to insert expansion disc. The point of me downloading the client was to avoid that since I don't have the lod disc anymore. I have the regular d2 installation, play and cinematics discs. Pretty much have everything including cd keys but no expansion disc.
I'm not sure you need to copy any files if you're using the digital version, provided you're installing it properly (i.e. installing classic D2 first then LoD and not just LoD) and doing a Full Install both times. I mean, having a digital version wouldn't make much sense if you required a disc to play it...
With the digital download, just download the installers, then install the Core game first, then the expansion, then download and install 1.13c and you're good to go. I didn't need to do anything beyond that.
