Updated 2/12/18 small string error fix and now packed as a single folder again. Get it HERE!
Just replace the Save folder with your old version before you delete the old version.


This contains many changes built into 1.8 for great solo/TCPIP play. This is ideal for people who don't always have internet, don't have lots of time to play and don't want to worry about ever losing their characters, or just passing time solo/duo until a new realm patch goes up.

This has been extensively tested and played through. Some of the changes include:

-5 new Sets
-9 new Runewords
-7 new Uniques
-Largely improved all crafting
-Universal balance changes on most skills, items, monsters, and boss encounters to be more viable for solo/duo play
-Hireling fix for Blizzard and Meteor
-Increased chance to gamble sets and uniques
-Removed Fire Enchanted from non-super uniques
-Reduced the dmg% bonuses from runes
-Increased power of some gems
-Increased power of Uber uniques
-Increased base durability of all weapons to 250
-Increased resist penalties for NM and Hell to -60 and -120
-Increased Battle Command duration to 5 minutes
-Slightly improved Immolation Arrow burn radius
-Improved Double Swing and Frenzy damage scaling. Doubles Swing does significantly higher damage than Frenzy due to not gaining the IAS/FRW that Frenzy does.
-Updated, 100% accurate webpage folder included for item/craft links

**The goal for end-game here is that crafted items *can* be the best items in the game, though they often tend to not roll the way you want. Runewords, sets, and good rares can all be useful; there are no specific items that any character MUST have. For example, Life Tap proc is a suffix that can roll on rare (or crafted) amulets, but will you be lucky enough to get a good one?

**Monsters still have resist immunities, but these immunities can all be broken by high levels of Lower Resist, Amp, or Conviction. The nature of 1.8 skills not requiring synergies means that immunities are not as devastating as they used to be.

COMPLETE GAME INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

*Do not place this in program files. It's best to just put it in your c:/ directory*

-Right click D2SE application -> properties -> compatibility -> run program in windows XP SP3
-Check reduced color mode (16 bit)
-Check run as administrator
-Check disable themes (if available)
-Apply

-Repeat the above for Game.exe and Diablo II.exe

-Run the registry editor called "hu.reg" in the mods folder and hit OK to update gateways

-Run D2SE as admin, and hit glide config -> openGL infos. If your OS is 64 bit, change settings to 32 bit rendering. The game performs best in windowed mode, so I recommend checking windowed mode, keep aspect ratio, 1600x1200 static size, window extras. In renderer, if you have a newer computer, I recommend 64MB texture memory, 1024x1024 texture size, 32 bit rendering (if 64 bit), and all boxes EXCEPT 'no gamma'. Extensions, I recommend all except Vertex Array. If your computer isn't great and you get some FPS lag during big explosions, uncheck the render texture extension, and uncheck bilinear filtering and supersampling.

-These are the glide settings that worked for me, but your results may differ.

*If your graphics are geeked out, restart glide config and just try with default settings*


-Hit test, make sure it's ok, then hit Quit

-SCROLL DOWN on D2SE to find Hell Unleashed, UNCHECK -ns disable sound (unless you don't want sound...) For best results, CHECK -w windowmode, but windowmode is not required.

SOLO+TCP/IP VERSION WITH PLUGY

-Make sure your in-game resolution says 1024x768. This WILL NOT work if you use multires changes above (or lower) than this level.

Launch D2SE, and make sure the box for Use Plugy is checked. Also, make sure on the bottom right that both boxes are checked for -direct and -txt. These are crucial and must be checked every time or you might lose everything and the mod won't work. They should stay checked, but always make sure.

When in the game and using Plugy, do not use your private stash. Always keep your items in your shared stash. There is no shared gold. Do not put any items past page 100 of the shared stash or they might disappear.

If you get an error that says "change it so memory=0", just reboot your computer, and it will work. It's just a registry conflict. Also running a program like CCleaner to clean your registry can help prevent this.

**The Plugy files will NEVER work on Arimyth realms! Keep two separate folders if you want a Plugy version and an online version!**

@Dankmemes- currently it says realms are 1.6b still.

Thank you for this. My friend and I have been looking forward to 1.6c. Does this mean it's not going to be put on realms?

You can't rely on the LCS for dmg displays far to many don't list properly. Smite, multi, and many more.

Smite always hit, so it doesn't need AR.
Let make everything clear.

Updated game and patch note links. If you downloaded this already, you should download the patch_d2 only (since it's faster) and replace the patch_d2.mpq file in your HU 1.6c folder.

The update fixes the effectiveness of Amp from both CTC items and Necro casts.

If it was the same as 1.6b, Ardual isn't actually hard because he himself is hard. I had problems at first because of the trash there. Pit Vipers are really annoying and have a lot of HP. I don't know if you needed to lower the resist of the boss, he's really not that tough to deal with after you fight through the trash.

Well.
I see, Venom is so wrong with Claw Mastery, so it's a trash skill

You must level up Venom first then CM. LOL, very disappointed synergy.
It 10% AR, not 5%...

2k or 3k poison damage is useless from late Nightmare.

Venom synergy is synergising a passive. To update a passive you need to un-equip > equip an item with + skills or take a skill shrine or rejoin the game. Not sure why the ar wasn't just added to venom but w/e.

Thanks.
Assassin class in 1.6b isn't enough good, except curse reduction time.

I am new, but not new.... I've always been a forum lurker ;)

I personally like SP!

Anyway, I had the 1.2 solo edition for a long time, and was excited to see that you guys made a new one for 1.6!

1.2 worked great for me, but now that I have downloaded 1.6c, I am having D2Client.DLL crashes *c0000005*

It is COMPLETELY RANDOM... sometimes it will crash on entering the game, sometimes it will work.. and when it works, it won't crash if i load any other characters. I tried turning off plugy, direct txt, redoing my graphics through Sven's glide wrapper, editing various files, redownloading, following directions to the letter... nothing works.. it is just random.. sometimes more random than I care for.

Any ideas?

**one other thing, if someone knows, and cares to answer.
In the 1.2 solo edition, I either edited the txt files to put town portal books and scrolls back in... or hacked a save to have them and then duped with shared stash...but I can't seem to do it now. I don't recall how i did it years ago :O haha
in 1.6c, I tried adding them back into Misc.txt, but they don't show up at Akara... I also tested some other entires for Akara to see if they worked, and the other items appeared just fine.
Is there a specific text file I need to edit/add the missing data?**

*************EDIT*****************
New info, I can open another instance of the game by allowing multiple instances in plugy... if I leave the crashed game up, and start another instance, works every time!
still... crashing on the first game entry (to town) is annoying, but I can use this workaround for now.

Disregard my town portal question... but for those who are interested : edit Misc.txt and make sure you set the scrolls and books to usable and spawn-able, as well as adding to specific merchant inventory
**********END OF EDIT*************

thank you! :)

If you're installing from the 1.6c that Ensley linked, what is cubemain.txt or misc.txt? Shouldn't be there, they don't exist in the bundle of downloads... unless you are just using Patch_d2.mpq with the old install on a working copy of the game. Maybe I should do that and see if it fixes the no portal book and no crafting issue I have.

The mpq files are entirely open source, so anyone can edit the mpq however they want assuming they know how. We don't own it and we aren't selling it so you can add portal scrolls or whatever you want if it's fun for you. You just can't edit it to play on arimyth realm since the server is using the specific mpq and you will see no changes or just crash if you try to change it. You can make an ElElEl runeword that does 999% damage if you want but if you put ElElEl in a weapon on the server it won't do anything.

I have no idea why you have no portal book Darbus but maybe trying to edit in scrolls would be better for you, lol.

I apologize, I was editing cubemain when I posted that and meant to say Misc.txt. Those text files are in the patch_d2.mpq under the data/global/excel path.

(Notes:
1. I use D2SE to play HU
2. The following WILL NOT work on the server! SP only)
If you don't know how to edit the text files, i don't recommend you do it, unless you back everything up. But if you do.. Get an MPQ editor and extract Misc.txt to the same path structure in your HU directory... So it will look like:

C:\HU\data\global\excel\Misc.txt

You can open it in a text editor.. but I recommend Excel, or some other spreadsheet program that can load CSV files (Comma Separated Values) There should be an option for tab delimited as well (which is what the text file really is) Also make sure to run direct txt when you run the game after you edit and save the file.
For town portal books and scrolls, you have to add them back into the vendor inventories, and be sure to change the spawnable and usable columns for whichever item you are editing, from 0 to 1, that was my mistake from my first post.

Take a look at identify scrolls and books in that text file for examples...
Also, there are plenty of modding sources out there to reference and learn from.
Good luck!

Thank you for the heads up Anarchimera, I'll look into it this weekend when I can afford more time.

@Ensley, again thank you, and I'm still very certain that I made a mistake in the way I installed it. Only issue since then has been flickering in Act 5, but that is something I can live with.

No problem!
A side note: Ensley informed me that there is the tome of return that drops from Leoric in Tristram, which I just found lol... but I still enjoy having the traditional TP book as I am not sure if the Tome of Return takes you to Rogue Encampmet everytime, or if it changes with each act lol :)

Thanks!

It always takes you to act 1. It's for the convenience of not having to leave and rejoin a game when you are full of stuff. Direct portal scrolls are too much of a get-out-of-jail-free card which allows you to instantly restock pots and port back to a boss before he regens (and allows friends to instantly rejoin fights on MP) The other old issue was the abuse of single-spawning bosses in MP games.

Of course there are other things such as pot-bombing with your cube near the boss, but at least that's more about preparation rather than just porting in and out with frantic shift+right click pot purchases.

The most trolly thing is when you get a portal shrine right next to Diablo or Mephisto. :lol:

Yes, I understand why they were removed and agree with doing so for MP games: boss rushing, cheesing, etc... :)
I, however enjoy playing SP, never was a big fan of MP, vanilla or modded.

Thanks for helping to keep this wonderful mod alive!

New update - slight rework of War Cry. See the patch notes and feel free to test it out.

Also updated how weapon block works.

Note on thread listing: You have Warcry listed twice...i understand it is due to outlining changes over time, but I think you should remove the first one, as it doesn't quite pertain any more.

Warcry changes: Will be interesting to see how the faster missile speed works out. Is the duration the same? Roughly how big is the total area compared to something like nova? There are some pluses to both faster and slower missile speeds. It was discussed a long time ago, so I forget all the details...the main one was probably similar to tornado and essentially double hits. If the next hit delay is too high, then the second shot misses...which is why nados are slow.
Still, higher speed gives area damage...i will probably enjoy it either way (as long as the aforementioned is worked out for high cast speeds).

Set changes: Um....please no. The way that set auras work is (basically) well known for a long time. It forces a choice...maybe not elegantly, but it does.

Secondly, you are changing ones that likely don't need to be changed at all. If you look at all the ones that have issues, they are all the ones that 'refresh' under certain conditions. Cleansing, Prayer, Meditation (all players checks), Sanctuary (monster check). Things like Defiance, Concentration, etc are checked only on initiation or on item change.
If you take Def off Hsarus set I will RIOT! (j/k...but really it's worn a soft spot in dark, shriveled heart).

Thirdly, Many of these sets are used on mercs. These will not conflict (much) with 'your' auras. This is a massive nerf overall. Area of effect for single target+same to lower values. Maybe it's needed, but I haven't seen the reasoning for that. Just that this is to simplify the mechanics available to used.

So many people whined about the set auras that this was the end result. Meditation was actually one of the most annoying if you're wearing Arcanna's because it constantly resets with that HEEEEEEEEEEE sound, and it does jumble your FCR as it toggles on and off, so it is indeed quite broken.

For War Cry, the hit delay is 6 frames; I doubt you can ever cast more than 4 times per second. It says Barbs with 200% FCR get 7 frames.

Whining, and confusion due to ignorance, are completely different things. I know Med can be annoying when on sets. It only happens on the player, not when put on a merc. Blargh.

Big update for crossbows! Due to the nature of the 7/11 frame cap of bows/crossbows, crossbows really become useless late game. They still may be technically inferior by the numbers in some cases, but some large improvements have been made to greatly shorten the gap.

-All crossbows now have an innate 25-50% pierce chance
-The 4 elite crossbows have had their damage greatly increased and their speeds have been increased to the following:
Pellet bow: -20
Gorgon crossbow: -10
Colossus crossbow: 0
Demon Crossbow: -50

-All bolts starting at ilvl 50 will often spawn with +3-5 bow/crossbow skills
-Magic and rare bolts can now spawn with extremely powerful damage mods
-The elite unique crossbows and bolts have been improved

Note that these changes only really affect higher level items (55+)

All links updated!

So I followed this install, I can load the game, log into my account.
once I join a game I have all sound and everything but the screen in completely black.
Not sure what i'm missing or how to fix this.

I tried single player as well just to make sure it wasn't battle net but same issue.

That must be a problem with your video settings, I would say. Are you using glide? And if yes, did you tinker with the settings?

Yes I was using glide and changed all the settings as it said up top.
I changed it to DDraw and it worked!. Not sure if this is ok to play on but it seems fine.

Don't worry about it, glide also does not work for me. I never played with it for that reason.

Lost my last reply to fat fingers : (

Didn't mean to imply anything or appear ungrateful-- i've been using your 1.16a complete folder and it's amazing, for which i am indeed exceedingly grateful.

For what it's worth and if you're interested, i downloaded folder, set compatibility and permissions, then scanned with malwarebytes before running the .exe-- my usual protocol.

No worries mate I was just letting you know. If you're still playing 1.6a you should switch to the new version, much more balanced. :P

Hi there.

I followed the steps and made to the solo/tcpi section (went with the full install). I've extracted the plugy & other mandatory plugy files and replaced the exisiting. Unfortunately no option for "enable Plugy" like in the pictures are not present. I can, however, select "enable PlugY" for any other patch excluding hell unleashed (ie. 1.10, 1.09 etc).

Additionally, loading up the game and making a character all work fine. Once the game starts, its a blank screen; but i can hear the sounds.

I've installed all of this in my C:\ directory. I'm on windows 7 x64.

Thanks!

EDIT: Playing in non-windowed mode works. Still working to fix the plugy issue.
EDIT#2: Okay i was supposed to extract the plugy in HU folder, now it works. Thanks!

Blank screen with sound is generally a resolution error; make sure the game says it's running in 1024x768 in D2ExpRes and looks like this:

[ModeResolution]
;Resolutions
X1=1024
Y1=768
X2=1024
Y2=768

Glad you got it working for the most part.

1.6c is live on multiplayer. 1.7 is a WIP single player (or tcp/ip) test version for the future patch.

Thanks Kramuti.

I meant in OP; the "Complete Item and Cube List: HERE". It seems to be fixed now.

Anyone know how to get Plugy to refund skill points? I enabled
[SKILLS POINTS]
ActiveSkillsUnassignment=1
ActiveSkillsUnassignmentOneForOne=1
PosXUnassignSkillBtn=-1
PosYUnassignSkillBtn=-1

in plugy.ini in both the HU folder and D2SE folder. It added a button, but clicking it does nothing.

I hope the file becomes available to download soon ;_;.. I've been checking every day for almost 3 days and no luck.

I've tried installing the game and getting variations to work in total of almost 5 hrs but end up always getting a corrupted file or issues with patch agreement. Really looking forward to playing the game sometime soon

Thanks for being nice though

e; If someone would be awesome enough to help walk me through how to get things working that'd be awesome.. I guess im really bad at stuff like this and was hoping the complete 1.6 download would solve all my problems ._.

It looks like it might be down for at least 30 days since it's my 3rd suspension due to excess downloads.

Basically all you need to do is follow these steps viewtopic.php?f=8&t=13821 but download the megafileupload here instead of the 1.6c there.


-you need the base d2 game
-you need 1.10 rollback http://www.chrisclarke.co.uk/D2stuff/PDFs/TrenShadow/ change .zzz to .zip
-you need d2se
-you need the 1.5 core files
-you need the 1.6c patch_d2 HERE http://www.filedropper.com/16cspplugy in the mods folder

Thanks for the assistance. I don't really understand why this is impossible for me to get to work.. Let me walk through every step I've done so far.. each time I do it i end up getting "The file data is corrupt." File: D:\Diablo II\d2data.mpq

1. Diablo 2 base game install from battle.net
2. Copy files for 1.10 over and replace.
3. install D2SE
4. Drop HU_D2SE_Core_1.5 in Mods folder
5. Downloaded 1.6c core and replaced files in HU_D2SE_Core_1.5 with those files.
6. Open D2SE (ensure D2SE, Game.exe, Diablo II.app are all set to compatibility SP3, run as admin)
7. Select Hell Unleashed from D2SE list, "Start pluggin"

Then I get the file data is corrupt ;_;..

Try to run D2ModSetup

If you don't have one, open notepad and type

@echo off
rundll32 .\d2mod.dll,D2ModSetup
@echo on

save it as D2ModSetup.bat then put it in the main folder and run it.

Also don't download the 1.6c core. that's what the new one here is for.

If you get it to work, make a copy of the folder before you try to also get the Plugy+other files to work.

At the moment I'm trying to upload the full folder again, so stay tuned and see how that works out.

So the "other files" goes in the HU mod folder, Patch_D2 goes in the Diablo II main folder and PlugY just overwrites the PlugY folder right?

Did that and also ran the .bat and it said "installed successfully" still corrupted .data ;_;

I've actually never spent so much time doing something lol.. almost 5 hrs of trying to get this to work

e; Saw your edit, I'll be hopeful friend. Very much appreciate your help <3

Patch_d2 goes in the HU folder. The 'other files' goes in both folders and the plugy files go in the plugy folder.

Remember you still have to do the instructions on the first page for winXP sp3 and such. Also remember to not use your private stash with Plugy. Click the button to use the shared stashes. You're welcome, enjoy.

So this may not belong at the end of this thread, but i'm asking anyways as it does pertain specifically to this version. I started playing with a friend and wanted to try something difference than my usual barbarian or sorceress run.

So a ranged druid summoner is what i thought would be fun. However my buddy informed me i'd never be able to beat or survive HU with that class. I didn't want to believe him and did some online class build research and calculating based on online skill calculators.....only to find out the HU doesn't just increase/alter damage amounts, synergy %'s, items; it completely alters some skills. Example: oak sage for druid summons a creature/spirit to increase life and mana for you and your party.....in vanilla. In HU(this version anyways) it increases elemental penetration.

Is there ANY sort of chart or text file listing ALL the classes and their respective skill changes? bc its a little hard to build a char for success if you don't know their skills. Thanks

Not the thread for it but best way is to get hero editor and/or just make characters in single player. Hero Editor will let you create characters with 255 skill points, put gear on them, level them to 99, etc.

Does a 1.6c Full exist? I'd be very interested to have a version of 1.6c with the new music. Even browsing files.arimyth/HU I can only find a link to 1.6 Lite. Searching cached webpages of old forum posts mention a 1.6c Full "Link Coming Later" but no actual link appears to ever be posted.

Has 1.6 ever been given the New Music treatment? I've attempted to merge the soundtrack from 1.5 into 1.6c but I'm getting nothing but crashes when doing so. I'm not an expert modder so I don't really know where to start with this task or how complex of a task it would be.

Any info is welcome! Cheers!

Ensley would be the best person to officially reply, but he hasn't been around the forum for quite a while. As far as I know, there's no HUv1.6c Multiplayer version or FullMusic version (I've no idea which is the last version with full music, but that was one of the features of v1.7 some folks were looking forward to).

Since PureRage is busy with off-site work, I think I'm the only HU modder that currently frequents the forums, but I never did any sound editing. From quickly taking a look at the files, it looks like this is required (for a Level's background music):
  1. Create an entry in sounds.txt for the music (PhozenKeep Fileguide). Don't forget to actually place a sound file in the location specified.
  2. Create an entry in SoundEnviron.txt (I didn't notice a file guide) with a pointer to the entry in sounds.txt.
  3. Edit Levels.txt's soundenv field to point to the entry in SoundEnviron.txt (PhrozenKeep fileguide).

If you'd like to ask your questions to D2 modders with more Sound experience, consider posting on PhrozenKeep

Alright, I was messing around a bit with getting the custom Hell Unleashed music into 1.6c and I think I got an acceptable result - though I still need to test stability.

This 1.6c file tree in this topic contains the file:
/D2SE/Patch_D2.mpq.

That file has the code and music from a previous version of Hell Unleashed (I don't know which version but I'd imagine 1.5?) - the exact data that I want in 1.6c.

After learning a bit about how D2SE works, I discovered the following inside D2SE_SETUP.ini:

Code:
#MPQ Setup
#1=Patch_D2.mpq gets loaded 0=gets unloaded. Use 0 only when your own .mpq holds all content of patch_d2.mpq
ModUsePatch_D2=1
#Names of up to 3 own MPQ Files in increasing priority. All of them are higher than patch_d2 32 Chars each maximum
ModMPQ1=Client_Edits.mpq
#ModMPQ2=
#ModMPQ3=



My procedure to get the Hell Unleashed custom music into HU 1.6c is as follows:

Go into the HU 1.6c mod folder: Diablo II/MODS/HU-1.6c/

RENAME Patch_d2.mpq to something else (I called it HU_16c.mpq)

COPY the Patch_d2.mpq from Diablo II/D2SE that I mentioned before INTO the HU 1.6c mod folder. This folder now has both files.

EDIT the D2SE_SETUP.ini files in the ROOT directory as well as in the HU 1.6c folder like so:


Code:
#MPQ Setup
#1=Patch_D2.mpq gets loaded 0=gets unloaded. Use 0 only when your own .mpq holds all content of patch_d2.mpq
ModUsePatch_D2=1
#Names of up to 3 own MPQ Files in increasing priority. All of them are higher than patch_d2 32 Chars each maximum
ModMPQ1=HU_16c.mpq
ModMPQ2=Client_Edits.mpq
#ModMPQ3=


This causes Hell Unleashed 1.6c to load the old Patch_d2.mpq (the random one from the D2SE folder that I have no idea what version it is but it contains the music+sound code) FIRST, and THEN load the HU_16c.mpq file - which remember is the ACTUAL 1.6c MPQ file that contains the game data.

The result is that we load in all the MISSING sound data from the old Patch_d2 file, then OVERWRITE it with the 1.6c mpq file. What you get is a game that's using the 1.6c patch_d2 MPQ data...but you ALSO have all the missing sound+music data.

I still need to figure out whether this has any negative side effect but after about half an hour of playtesting it seems to have worked perfectly. The only noticable side-effect is that I have an extra ~350 MB MPQ file that seems to add a couple of seconds to the "save and exit game" operation but I can more than live with that.

^This is brilliant and it actually works. :D

I've created a new balance patch for this as a single player or duo version with Plugy. I have included the new functioning music changes into it, as well as fixing the lvl 95 caves to not have uber mobs in normal or nightmare, Gidbinn map bug, etc, as well as many skill changes to ideally make ANY skill useful end-game with the right build (examples: Might aura gives far more damage than Concentration and Fanaticism, since all it adds is damage. Doubleswing does a lot more damage than Frenzy, but you don't get the speed, IAS, or DR.) Gear has NOT been changed, so you don't need to worry about bad inventory data or creating legacy items. I have also expanded some of the smaller treasure caves and such to have more monsters, more loot, and just overall more content.

The goals of this are to not have any cookie cutter builds that you must go, and to create a game version for people who can't or won't play the more difficult online realm versions. Mraw's new patch will likely be better than this, but not for people who only want to play single player. Play one or play both, whatever your preference.

Just download the Full 1.6c Complete Game on the first page, copy out your saves folder (if you have one), put it in this one, and delete your old Full 1.6c Complete Game. Be sure to make the setting changes again listed on the first page (windows xp sp3, etc).

edit: My mistake. I was trying to launch the game from a separate D2SE install; I didn't notice that you included a D2SE executable inside the mod folder.

Whoops.

The 1.8 download you provided only appears to have 1.6c files in it. Am I doing something wrong?

The name of the folder is not important. The files are correct.

EDITED for next post

Updated hireling fix - A3 mercs will cast blizzard and meteor more often, will cast ice bolt and firestorm less often. Go to mods -> HU -> data -> global -> excel and swap out the hireling.txt file and delete the .bin file.

Updated the data and webpage folder with a minor fix and balance changes. This will not cause any character crashes. Simply delete your old data folder and put this one in its place, along with the webpage maker for accurate changes.

Notable changes are:
-Hireling fix for Blizzard and Meteor
-Increased chance to gamble sets and uniques
-Removed Fire Enchanted from non-super uniques
-Reduced the dmg% bonuses from runes
-Increased power of some gems
-Increased power of Uber uniques
-Increased base durability of all weapons to 250
-Increased resist penalties for NM and Hell to -60 and -120
-Increased Battle Command duration to 5 minutes
-Slightly improved Immolation Arrow burn radius
-Improved Double Swing and Frenzy damage scaling. Doubles Swing does significantly higher damage than Frenzy due to not gaining the IAS/FRW that Frenzy does.

This is likely due to the change in the double swing animation in 1.5? If you put it back to default, it attacks faster than Frenzy, and it's minimum allowed fpa is better as well.

Updated 2/12/18 small string error fix and now packed as a single folder again. Get it HERE!

Just replace the Save folder with your old version before you delete the old version.
