PlugY and D2 Version

#1Supernose2004Posted 10/11/2008 7:45:51 PM
First, does anyone have a working link to PlugY? Everytime I search for it, the link doesn't work, and the few times I've found links that work, I try to install on my laptop, and WinRAR has a hissy fit with the file and won't extract anything out of it. Also, I know you need v1.11 to use PlugY, so how do you set up a new install with the older version? I'm running 1.12 right now. Thanks.

Here's the download link: http://djaftal.chez-alice.fr/download.html

I wrote up a long, detailed explanation of how to get a second install for 1.11b/PlugY over at d2offline earlier today, but the site's down right now (I believe there's some kind of server maintenance going on, we hope it'll be back up tomorrow). The quick explanation is something like this:

-Rename your current D2 install folder to something else (I usually pick something like Diablo II - Standard)

-Reinstall D2, update to 1.11b, and install PlugY using the installer. There's a bug with PlugY that it sometimes won't work unless you copy (not move) the PlugY folder from Mod PlugY to the D2 install directory, so do that.

-You should now have two working installs of D2, you can rename the one you don't want to be using to something else, the one you do want to use to the original name of your install directory (by default C:\Program Files\Diablo II), and run from there. Use the PlugY.exe to run PlugY, or create a shortcut to it if you want to use -w, -ns and so on (note: you need the CD to run PlugY, or Daemon Tools etc to mount an image of the CD, since the no-CD functionality was introduced in 1.12).

Let me know if you have any further questions/confusions.

I understand that, my question now is, how do I update to a specific version? The current version I have, I tried to connect to battlenet and it automatically updated to 1.12.

I can't seem to find the official site any more, but this site seems to have it (first link found by Google):

http://www.softwarepatch.com/games/diablo2.html

If I could I would, but I'm on deployment for another month or so, when I get back though definitely.

I'm sure we'll do more runs, hopefully we'll be able to get one going once you get back.

Also, fyi, I put together a "clean" PlugY.ini file which you should be able to download once d2offline comes back up... it basically disables all of the annoying features of PlugY and the ones which enable cheating (the only things enabled in it are Diablo Clone and Ubers, and I modified the spawn options for the Clone to make a single SoJ sell guarantee him but automatic selling not occur).
