anyone interested in seeing 1.21z, the last version of Soulmancer, go live on the realm? there would be no changes, it would be full of all the bugs/imbalances of the original. the purpose wouldn't be to try to improve upon it, but rather to enjoy the original version in all its glory!

Sure that sounds like a good idea. I'm not sure if that D2SE file for v1.21 is still available, but it isn't hard to make so I could repost it somewhere.

though don't have much faith in melee characters right now, with the huge CB nerf physical melee characters may as well be hitting bosses with a cardboard sword and it doesn't appear the damage boost from str has helped alleviate that.

that would actually help a ton brevan, i do believe most people are running d2se nowadays. i sent duff a pm, so if we can get more interest for this then it should be good for a reset.

Here's a link to D2SE_Setup.ini for HU v1.21z:
Dropbox link
Internet Archive link

Here's a link to the web pages for HUv1.21z *:
Internet Archive link

* There will be some errors or omissions, e.g. Immortal King's helm says "+1- Barbarian Skills" because that's what the files contain. They're not setup for the web page maker, but about 99% of it worked fine. On the bright side, the version of the program I used for the web pages generated a Hirelings page, which hasn't been available in the past.

If anyone has links to older version of HU (1.21 was like the 20th version or similar), I'd be interested. Especially one of those versions when it was first released around 2005.

1.21z seems still here : http://files.arimyth.com/HU/
Older than this I have 1.16 (2006) too.

Edit:
I tried Archive.org but it doesn't work. https://www.dropbox.com/s/af6tfrjstbpst ... L.rar?dl=0

Does 1.21 have high resolution? that would be easy to add if it doesn't, if theres interest. Also things like damage numbers/gold pickup

I think HighRes was first introduced in version 1.3, so none of Soulmancer's versions will include it.

Thanks Tsume, I've downloaded v1.16 and made a test character, was able to level up in BloodMoor, etc. Things seem about right to what I remember so I'm pretty sure the rest will be fine :)
Here are some links if others are interested in trying v1.16 some day:

Here's a link to HUv1.16:
Dropbox link (direct link for convenience)
Internet Archive link

Here's a link to D2SE_Setup.ini for HU v1.16:
Internet Archive link

Here's a link to the web pages for HUv1.16 *:
Internet Archive link

classic HU will depend on when duff gets back to us and whether or not he's ok with it. for those that do support the idea, leave a post here, it helps a lot to see if there is interest in this happening.

I'm up for one last run. Barbarian hard tank sword&board and a dedicated Paladin healer looking for a party to join reporting in.

PS: Please, no Ensley's lame, user-friendly, hold-your-hand patches this time, thanks in advance.

Okay, sorry, may be my post was a bit too presupposed. What I meant was, your patches are really iffy and more so on the easy side of things. I really don't know what you mean by 'ask someone about Mephisto', since Mephisto has been pain in the ass by default. Either way, I don't want to start a new dispute with you in a thread that has another purpose.

My point being - stay away from HU patches. I do like 1.3b and 1.5(all versions) if this matters at all. And that's all my personal preference and I really do hope what 'personal preference' means. :-)

I would be up for it, but I don't even have discs anymore. Would need 1.10 files. Are these hosted anywhere anymore? They were taken down some time ago.

i want to go with 1.21z to make it as fun as possible for all builds and classes. 1.21z is basically the same as 1.3 except for the heavy handed melee nerfs that were introduced in 1.3 and some silly rw's like the oskill sorceress mastery. i do believe later versions of 1.3 were really good but i think 1.21z was more fun and is what mancer wanted HU to feel like.

slappy if you liked 1.3 you'll love 1.21z!

best part of 1.3 was everyone flaming Blue for murdering melee. Also the 8man naked HC party

The D2SE download we use for 2.1, and 2.5, have all the regular 1.10 files in it. You'd just need to make a new mod folder and put in the 1.21 patch.

I will take a look at the 2.1 links then. Thank you. I am assuming you mean the links here, not the branch of HU.

Edit: and yes, we added Hi Res in 1.3 so it would need to be implemented.
