I wanted to mess around with adding some unique items, etc. just some minor mods to HU 2.1. I grabbed a set of modding tools:

MPQEditor
AFJ Table editor

I ran into a few snags that I'm not sure what to make of.

When I extract HU's patch_d2.mpq, I get 3 folders:

globa
Global
Local

What is the relevance of globa and Global? They seem similar but not identical (UniqueItems.txt is a different size in each one for example).

When I attmept to run via D2SE with -direct and -txt enabled, the game generally works but some strings show up as "an evil force", such as the name of the Tristram Codex. Furthermore, I get a ~25kb debug log with all sorts of errors such as

In addition, I notice that there is a Hell_Unleashed.mpq of about 17kb. My MPQ extractor is unable to see any files inside this mpq. Is there something vital here that I should be able to access? If so, what tool can I use to extract it?


In short, I expected a simple extraction of patch_d2.mpq to behave identically to simply playing without extracting but it does not.

Any thoughts are welcome!
