Without total conversion or new storyline, this 1.13c soft-coded mod is end-game challenge with improved gameplay and nostalgic refreshment. Faced with stronger evil, the world of Sanctuary awaits champions to engage in the Sin War.

Post tutorial Report RSS D2SE Mod-manager Compatibility

There are two ways to achieve D2SE compatibility. One is to be lauched in the guise of vanilla recent patch, and the other is to install customized D2SE files.

Posted by on - Basic Other

The Sin War mod is compatible with D2SE, but due to the lack of a few key files, mod-manager can't identify version and display on lists. Here are two solutions:

(1) Disguise as vanilla patch 1.13d/1.14

It is the easiest way and actually the same as installation instructions in readme file. After copying all files to Diablo 2 directory and overwriting, launch D2SE and click on the upper right button "Start D2" to activate mod.

No Plugin


Characters are not saved separately, and there is no mod information. This solution is too simple to suit a player with numerous mods.

(2) Install customized D2SE mod-plugin

The Sin War 3.24 plugin

The Sin War 3.24 plugin


Almost perfect for D2SE users, so to speak. Before dealing with mod-plugin, you must have downloaded mod installation pack in which some files are required in new destination folder.

step1: Download and extract mod-plugin file. You will get a subfolder named "The Sin War".
step2: Copy "The Sin War" subfolder to "MODS" folder in Diablo 2 directory.
step3: Copy Patch_D2.mpq and PlugY.dll to "The Sin War" subfolder. (The original Patch_D2.mpq can be restored from backups if it has been overwritten.)

Folder


step4: Copy remaining files in installation pack to Diablo 2 directory and overwrite. (Ignore this step if you have done it.)
step5: Launch D2SE and The Sin War mod banner appears at the bottom of lists.

D2SE_normal edition


D2SE_HD edition


Note that D2SE mod-plugin can't work with extra language files. The first solution is the only choice if you have language problems.

The known issue mentioned in readme file is possibly caused by some kind of incompatibility. So far it has not happened to me, and I believe it can be fixed for good by either solution.
