the files for the runes are "invrXX.dc6" whare XX is the name of the rune. Exceptions are "invrJo.dc6" = jah rune and "invrShae.dc6" = shael

all are in data\global\items
extract from d2exp.mpq then d2patch.mpq.

If you need to find other items graphics, look in weapons/armor.txt and misc.txt. The "invfile" column is the name of the .dc6 to show for the item. The dc6 for item graphics will always be in data\global\items

For renaming, look in the same files (weapons/misc/armor.txt) ut this time the column to check is "namestr".

Ie. El has r01 as its "namestr".

Now you need to open the .tbl files with a .tbl editor (see the translating HU topic for those)
You can find the .tbl's in patch.mpq in data\local\lng\eng (extract all 3)

Always search patchstring.tbl first, then expansionstring.tl and finally string.tbl (if you havent found the string in the first ones).

Just open the .tbl with a desired .tbl editor and click the search button. For El rune, you would just search for the "r01" as that is unique (searching for El would bring up lots of results including NPC dialogue)

Once you find the string, just change it to what you want it to say in game and click save.

i cannot figure out what program to use to extract the .mpq files. ive tried the dc6 creator. winmpq and a few other .mpq programs, now my winmpq might be the problem because

occurs after i added the vb40032.dll you see in this picture because it couldnt run because vb40032.dll was missing from my computer). can you please post a link to the program you use to extract the .mpq files or something?

I use winmpq but have never had that issue.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/15324396/winmpq.rar

thats my folder. also contains a list file if it asks for one. Try that first. I remember relay having issues with it on windows 7. I'll have to ask him how he sorted it.
