Hi. You can get a full D2SE filetree that runs independant from your own D2 here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=14003

That comes preloaded with v1.6c. If you are looking for v1.7, simply follow the instructions in this thread afterwards: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16608

1.6 is currently what is being played on the realm. There will be a ladder reset within 1 month for 1.7.

I'd say get 1.7 and play around on solo, get use to Hell Unleashed. Server reset should come any day. :-)

It's up to you. If you don't mind playing 1.6 for a bit on realm and having your account wiped for reset, just hop on realm. If you would rather figure out 1.7 so you have a head-start on ladder reset, install 1.7.

1.7 Is currently single player only until the realm resets in a week or so. If you are using D2SE, once you start the mod (any version), just click the battle.net button and it will take you to the HU realm. In order to play on the realm at the min you need to run v1.6c, but you can have v1.7 installed allong ide 1.6 and select the version from the D2SE user interface.

I haven't tried D2SE's "Straight to BNet feature" but it sounds like you should keep things simple for now, at least until you know you've got the mod up and running. Try just making a single player character.

Once you know you can make characters, then we know you've had the mod correctly installed all this time. Go back to the main menu, and under the Battle.Net button, select the "Arimyth Network" gateway (rather than USWest or USEast - these are Blizzard's servers)

If you don't see Arimyth Network, then in the HU package you downloaded (I'm guessing v1.6c?), there should be a file "hu.reg". Double click it and accept that it will write information to your registry. Reopen D2 and let us know if you can see Arimyth Network in your Gateway list.

If this doesn't help, then we might need more details about what you're doing.
  • What version (HUv1.6c or v1.7)?
  • D2SE expects mod files to be within ".../DiabloII/MODS/<mod folder>/", are yours there?
  • Are you installing into C:/ProgramFiles/? This can cause Administrator-privilege issues for Windows.
  • From D2SE's menu, are you selecting (or double-clicking) HU's picture in the left half, and then pressing "start plugin" button at top right? (The "Start D2" button ignores the MODS folder, I think)

Free free to add extra install details, we can skip them if they're irrelevant

In a few days the servers will be reset and all characters deleted. The current version on the server is 1.6c but there probably won't be many people playing since all progress will be gone soon. The newest patch 1.7 is very different from 1.6c, skills, items and crafting will take some time to get used to.
I recommend you to install the newest version 1.7. You have to wait a few days before you can play online.
Install 1.7 solo version for now.
Wait until there is the reset announcement in this forum and install the multiplayer version.

There is no reason to install Multiplayer to play on the server if you already have Solo installed, you will experience no differences. When you play with other players (realm, TCP/IP), everyone uses the files of the Host computer/server. The realm Hosts will be using Multiplayer, so you if you think you'll be playing a lot of Solo offline, then install Solo. If you prefer TCP/IP for multiplayer, then you should install that from the start and host the TCP/IP games.

Brevan when the servers update can you make a post saying so? A few friends and I are going to give 1.7 a run, but I grow tired glancing at the forum and looking for answers.

If no one else posts a message, then sure I'll post something.

Last I heard, folks are still looking into getting a couple new Hosts set up, but that process doesn't involve me so I don't know the progress details until their shared.

I think I'd recommend later HU versions being made public around the end of January (maybe Spring Break (for either College or HighSchool students)) in the future. Although it's neat that v1.7 was available at the start of '17 and v1.8 would be available in '18, it's not very practical to find the time for everyone to organize last-minute details while on their holidays.

I feel you.
I also was checking the forums ~4 times yesterday.
It would be great to get a few days warning before the reset.
