Is this for an install with nothing installed (at all)? No D2, no D2SE, just nada?

EG: I am on a new computer with nothing installed. Can I follow the steps from this guide and be up and playing HU 1.6a?

Yes, no D2, no D2SE, or anything required. This is an all-in-one folder. This is ideal for new players or people who just reformatted or got a new PC.

Glad it works Kramuti :D

Cool. It seemed to work for the most part!

Two things. When I ran D2SE as admin, I was given an error, but it installed something, and then seemed to work.

When I joined a game, after following your instructions (which could be formatted a bit more clearly) when configuring glide config, the screen was black and I couldn't see anything. I am running a Nvidia GTX 460, and a 1920x1080 screen. It was in windowed mode.
Resetting to default seems to fix the problem.

Also, do I need to click the HU at the bottom of the D2SE program each time to launch HU? Or can I put a shortcut for that on my desktop?

Is there a way to play in my native resolution, windowed mode?

Some people have to use different glide configs, these are just what work for me so I recommend them for newer PCs.

AFAIK you have to start D2SE and click HU to play, but that's not a big deal

You don't want to play this game in 1920x1080. That's a 16:9 aspect ratio, and D2 is a 4:3 game. If you play at 1080, the characters will be stretched and look terrible.

Since the game resolution is 1024x768, stretching it to 1600x1200 still maintains a 4:3 aspect ratio and makes it not as tiny. You can toy with any resolutions you want, these are just my recommended settings.

I think that 'windows extra' in Settings will allow you to resize window. (i play in fullscreen, but just fiddling with other settings at the moment.

Glide will probably work pretty differently on different GPUs. Leaving most things alone first, then slowly ticking things off is the best way to know what is causing your issues.

Updating rapes my bandwidth and takes forever - I will do it sometime soon. Just download the new patch_d2 and replace the old one.

I do everything on list (folder place, settings), but characters spawns with 5hp/5mp and no starting 60 skill points. And even with installed SP Pluggy fix it's not working (-txt -direct checks is on).

Try to uninstall anything you have that's Diablo related and run a registry cleaner like CCleaner. reboot, redownload and try again. Also make sure you update to 1.6b by swapping out the Patch_D2

I clean all regedit pathes and d2 folders (i have some on other disk) reboot and try install this client again - nothing change, game working but creating character still dosn't give points (Win 7).

So, i solve problem only by clean installing regular d2->d2lod->1.10patch->nond2se-core1.5->1.6a_patch->1.6b.mpq->D2ModSetup.bat
- all stars fine and character finally receive missed points at creation.
(I also have "read disk" problem, but it's solved by "1.10 d2loader.exe" - i switch with them diabloii.exe file)

Because i want only SP i'm fine with that.
I also install Pluggy 10.00 with
Code:
[LAUNCHING]
Param=-txt -direct
Library=d2mod.dll

And turn off suggested .ini settings from here: http://forum.arimyth.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=8369

BYTE 66 wanted but E9 found to change memory at 6FAD15D3

And D2SE does not show a use plugy check box when I try to use D2SE

Make sure you copied in the "other files" stuff into the main and HU folder and replace all.

I've heard the plugy is not guaranteed to work for everyone, for unknown reasons, but it's worth trying a couple times to make sure you got it right.

Hey BiBiS,
could you please write a guide how to use Plugy with this mod?
I am still struglling like almost 8h hours trying to figure out what I am doing wrong.
This is what I did:
Uninstalled and all my Diablo2+Lod files
then Installed cleanof Diablo2+ Lod
then installed patch 1.10
extracted the Core files
Then patched it with 1.6b patch_mpq
then D2ModSetup.bat
extracted the 1.6a_solo live at c:
extracterd otherfiles and so on in my Hu folder and in the 1.6a live folder
Then I started D2SE, but no Plugy checkbox is being shown.
Then I installed Plugy in the DiabloII(HU) folder and changed the ini like you wrote in your post.
Then I started it in window mode it worked, but as soon as a char goes to stash the game crashes
and of course it also crashes in full screen mode

Did you try uninstalling all D2 related stuff, run ccleaner in registry, restart, and then just downloading this complete one?

I did it!!!!!!!
And I am going to write now a tutorial for all you people who also want to play this mod with plugy:

Follow the traditional installation of this mod without D2SE:
Traditional Installation (Non D2SE users)
==================================
This is the correct order from disc installation :
1- Install Diablo II 1.00
2- Install Diablo II LoD which is 1.07
3- Install LoDPatch_110.exe which is 1.10 -> http://files.arimyth.com/HU/LODPatch_110.exe[/code (also included with core)
4- Download Non-D2SE Hell Unleashed 1.5 Core:
http://files.arimyth.com/HU/HU_Non_D2SE_Core_1.5.7z
5- Extract Non-D2SE Hell Unleashed 1.5 Core.7z
and copy all files into the DiabloII Folder.
6- Run D2ModSetup, be sure it asks to INSTALL
7- download Hell Unleashed 1.6b Lite:
files.arimyth.com/HU/Hell_Unleashed_1.6b_Lite.zip
8- Extract Hell_Unleashed_1.6b_Lite.zip
and copy all files into the DiabloII Folder.

HU with PlugY for Single Player:
(I deleted Step 9, 10 and 13 and because they were not important.)
==================================
11. Right click on Diablo2.exe application select properties -> compatibility -> run program in windows XP SP3
12. Test if the mod works.
14. Download other files.rar:
https://dl.orangedox.com/k4ns38v5pTCyqXXHmw
15 Extract other files.rar and copy all files into the DiabloII Folder and into the Mod PlugY Folder.
16. run glide-init
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.
17. Start Plugy and it should work!

I just got only now one question is the Patch_D2.mpq of the 1.6a live rar better for playing it solo than with the 1.6b patch_d2.mpq. Or is the 1.6b version okay to use for solo?

That works well if you have old box keys, but many people don't and have a hard time getting the game at 1.10; they just download from bnet and see it's 1.13 and they just give up. Besides, you can basically just skip to step 9 and avoid steps 10 and 13.

Glad you got it working though, maybe that guide will help people too. :D

1.6b contains more balance and fixes so I would recommend that.

Hey,
ehm is there anyway to change players to 1?
always when I write /players 1
the msg comes: Players has been set to 8.....
I mean I like the exp boost from 8 players ingame but when I want to fight bosses in solo its almost impossible in act1 with low equipment.
And... right now my game also crashes at dark forest I go there by wp... other areas are all working but im stuck at dark forest right now.

Hello ehm well I managed to get to nm act1... but Andariel is way too strong for solo...
I'm playing a lvl 70 fury druid got all resistances more than maxed and do 4k-8k dmg, lvl 19 grizzly, 6k life, poison length red 125% + cube potions etc. but still no chance to defeat her... She deals too much dmg. with all her attacks + the stupid bone cages.
Any advice?

Fury probably causes too many counters. I would use Feral and get as much life leech as possible.

Are you still stuck on /players 8? If so you're gonna have a bad time most likely. I've never encountered that issue. Is it a plugy setting maybe?

Hm good question, I really do not know if i am stuck @ 8 players.
I still get the msg though if I type in /players that players is set to 8.
But I continued playing by giving my char in act1 norm the angelic set by gambling :). Then I always found a great wpn that helped me to continue. But now in Nm I got no chance in defeating Andariel.
Yes I got Feral rage on 20 and Fury on lvl 1 (+8 to all skills), I got the upgraded cutless 1h sword with 256-412 dmg with 3 moonstone skulls in it. 50% life leech.
Then you maybe can tell me if the settings are still on players 8... But probably that is the case... I just used Hero editor to get rid of the bear skill points and I have put them in the poison spirit with elemental absorb.
The only thing I haven't tried is using the runeword smoke with weaken charges... maybe that would help.
I uploaded my char here, it is a 1.6b char maybe you can tell me what I was doing wrong:

I've not played 1.6. I just know I usually go 2 hand on melee druid as more damage = more life stolen. If cutlas is > 2 hander then go for it. Make sure you have as much IAS on the weapon as you can muster. Weapon speed > leech for shifter

Well, right now I cannot recommend this mod for solo. It's way too hard because /players is static or fixed at 8 (= 8 players in the game). Due to it the bosses are too tough in nightmare. Although I have got with my fury/feral rage druid at lvl 71 nice equipment, 6k life, 50ll, max attackspeed, 4500-7000 dmg and all resistance at 250 I still cannot defeat Andariel in nm. Andariels attacks are too strong and the bone cages too much life... It's so sad because it made so much fun at normal but nightmare is just too hard. Maybe a druid wasn't the best choice, maybe a barb would have been better... But I do not think so.
I think I would need about 12k life or 18k life but this would only be possible with cheats because you need at least 120 strength.
So till a patch comes out where you can set players via /players on 1 again, I wouldn't recommend it. Except if you only want to play the normal diffuculty all the time :)

And yes I already installed it a second time without pluggy. Once with d2se and once without by just putting the mods files in the folder. But still I got the same issue /players fixed at 8. /players 1 does not work. You always get the message: Players set on 8.

So for all hardcore d2 gamers try to beat andariel at nightmare solo in singleplayer and if you do plz send me an pm.

In D2Mod.ini:
"HPTable = 350,350,350,350,350,350,350,350"
Change to
"HPTable = 150,200,200,250,300,300,350,350"

If the hptable is the same all the way through it is auto locked to /p8 because p1 and p8 have exact same hp.

Ps. current live version is using the top one so if you haven't fully loaded your game you're losing out.

Hey PureRage Thank you!

I changed the in the D2Mod.ini:
"HPTable = 350,350,350,350,350,350,350,350"
to
"HPTable = 150,200,200,250,300,300,350,350"

And also changed in the D2Mod.ini:
; minimum "/players X" value allowed, normal is 1
PlayersXmin = 8

to

; minimum "/players X" value allowed, normal is 1
PlayersXmin = 1

Now it seems like it is working like it should. Now I can type in /players 1 and get the msg: players is set to 1. And I can increase the amount of players when I want to. I haven't tried to defeat Andariel yet but it should be now a bit easier if the game really takes over these settings.

Did I already write Thank you?

Well Thank you!

She is dead! Andariel at nightmare difficulty is finally dead!
Now I can recommend this mod for Solo again! It's now excellent!
But like already mentioned, before playying this mod singleplayer change the hp table in the D2Mod.ini! Otherwise it'll be too hard at nightmare.

So for everybody who wants to play this mod solo+pluggy
Change these Rates in your D2Mod.ini from:

; minimum "/players X" value allowed, normal is 1
PlayersXmin = 8
to
; minimum "/players X" value allowed, normal is 1
PlayersXmin = 1

And

"HPTable = 350,350,350,350,350,350,350,350"
to
"HPTable = 150,200,200,250,300,300,350,350"

Next Problem...!
Help act4 diablo solo singleplayer...players set on 1...
my feral rage/fury druid is now act4 lvl 87 has an eth. phaseblade unique dmg: 8k-11k, ll30, 6k life, fire resistance 300, fire absorb 59, ias almost max.

Every monster dies with only 2hits, except the seal monsters then appear after activating the seals. Everything is okay till I have to face DIABLO.
DIABLO only needs to make his fire inferno attack or his fire wave attack and my druid is instantly dead. Even if his fire only hits me a little im at 1 hp or so.... If my druid had a range attack or something like that it would be no Problem, but come on i got 300 fire resistance and 59 fire absorb... that should be enough or not?!
Does anyone got an advice?
@ PureRage: I even changed the hp table for 1 player to 0... But diablo's fire attack dmg is at the moment too much.

Absorb is capped at 40% so anything you are using for fire absorb over 40%, remove and replace with MDR/PDR. Best way to deal with the flame wave is to hit a few times > sidestep clockwise/anticlockwise > hit a few times. Always sidestep, never run backwards. Same with lightning hose, just spin him around if he starts using it.

Ensley took down all his dropbox files when things didn't go as he had planned.

I finally defeated DIABLO in nightmare.
It was a tough fight but after some hours I found out that his red lightning inferno attack is a lightning + physical attack. Before I didn't have any lightning absorb.
I only managed to defeat him because I had fire and lightning absorb both on 40% + MDR at 90.

Thanks for the help guys, but it was mostly my lack of knowledge of the red lightning inferno that I struggled in defeating him. At first I always had a shield with 3 Rubys in it because I thought I needed the fire absorb then after finding out that the attack is a lightning attack I used 3 Topaz instead.

@Convert which file do you need? I could upload you the fixes but not the main file because it contains almost the whole Diablo2 files and I do not want to get problems with the law.

Mind posting your gear? I'm interested to know how you got both resists to 40% absorb

AH Riem, You got me there! ;)

Well I had my weapon twice so I used two different shields... but I just saw that my 40% absorb was an old value that I had when I was only concentrating on fire absorb.

I constantly swapped weapons at the right moment for killing Diablo, I mean to run away from Diablo when he used lightning inferno attack I used my lightning shield and when he made his flame wave I used my fire shield.

So I only had like 32% fire and 17% lightning absorb with my fire shield and
13% fire and 31% lightning absorb when I used my lighning shield.

Sorry but 40% absorb at the same time is probably not possible.

Fairly certain it is, but not while progressing through Nightmare.

Congrats on downing diablo! I needed the whole thing including d2. It's been so long I no longer have the disks and never applied them to a battle.net account to begin with. Less than legal means of acquiring the game seem to have dried up as well so I'm at a loss as to how to play!

Is the frozen tundra a bonus level?
It was very similar to the cow level because of so many monsters storming at you, but I was glad that they didn't do too much dmg @ nightmare and that they weren't undead otherwise I probably would have had no chance.

@Convert Well too bad but maybe you will be lucky and Ensley03 will upload it for you again. However in his package Plugy did not work with D2SE when I tried it. And I really cannot recommend this mod singleplayer if you do not have Plugy included. But if you really like diablo2 you should just buy the game a 2nd time and keep an eye on the discs so that you do not lose them again.

Tundra is one of the best places to farm in this mod and is all the end game some people actually do.

Yeah it's quite nice to farm love it. But I'm still too scared of Baal to fight him especially I'm afraid of the undeads that use the charge attack of a paladin and you almost cannot block it. I already used a lot of skulls on my shield to have a high phys resistance but they still sometimes manage to kill me.
