Easiest way to play 1.09d Diablo II?

#1AlexTheNextOnePosted 8/26/2013 7:15:04 AM
I want to relive (IMO) the best days of Diablo II, during 1.09d, before synergies, but I cannot find any installers that install the base 1.00 game.

What would be the simplest way to be able to play 1.09d, either through someone telling me where to find the base game so I can patch up to 1.09d, or steps on how to use some kind of reverter?

(Yes, I posted this on the D2 boards as well, but figured I'd get a quicker response here)

Had to throw out my old CDs, they were too messed up because of the fabric of the CD case I used to hold them in.

I have the new Battle Chest, but that one automatically comes with a 1.12 version of the game.

Try the D2SE mod manager, I think that allows you to play older patches of the base game as well.

You can add the key to your battle.net account and then download the games from there.

Right, right, my mistake. I want the base 1.07 game, to patch UP to 1.09d.

So does anyone know where I can find the base 1.07 version of LOD?
