Hey everyone, I've been having trouble for a while now after attempting to install HU on top of my Diablo 2 LOD digital download.
The download automatically installs it to patch version 1.13 and i'm unable to find a way to downgrade it because when i attempt to patch it to 1.10 or 1.09 (so i can then upgrade to 1.10) it just tells me there's no need to patch it because it's already 1.13 bla bla... I've looked at a few other posts on here about it but none of them have worked, if anyone has any experience with this or advice it will be greatly appreciated, me and a mate are trying to get back into the game,
cheers!

The core HU file comes with 1.10 files, just copy them into your d2 folder after you installed.

Tried that but it doesnt let you downgrade the verion because the previous one (v1.13) is more up to date.

i extracted the contents of the backup folder into the diablo 2 directory and none of the executable files will work, i even tried d2loader, it has the loading circle over the mouse pointer for a few seconds then disappears

It would be fantastic if Mraw or someone could make this game run on 1.13. It would be easier for new players, and we could also put in the respec feature. There's not going to be a 1.14 so I think we'd be safe for the future.

As far as the OP, you should just be able to download the 1.10 reroll and then just run the d2modsetup to activate the mod after you copy and replace all of the HU files into the d2 folder, and D2SE seems easier if you are trying to do that.

One: We're never getting respec, ever.
Two: porting this mod to 1.13 would take a phenomenal amount of work for essentially nothing, work that could be spent working on new items/ environments / balance changes.

Parts of the mod are incompatible with 1.13. It will therefore never be ported.

There used to be a patch converter, but the link I have always used is now dead. (if you dig it up in an old post here...yup, it is dead).

I am surprised copy and paste of the 1.10 files did not work..i think it did for me (with some oddities).

You are running in compatibility mode (XP SP2 or SP3), have disable desktop decomposition, and disable visual themes marked in your shortcut?

You don't have it installed in program files, correct?

and respec won't be done either...even if it could be.

I install with the digital dl as well and it works for me. Make sure you run the game in compatbility mode for windows xp and as an administrator.

Bad lag means you probably aren't running in 3d glide. If you use direct2d or directdraw you will lag out with a modern video card. The game runs better on a 1999 Voodoo card than a GTX 960 if you don't have a glide wrapper.
