Known Issues

* Small 4:3 resolutions show a black bar behind the skill menu
- Native to Kirii's UI, which mine is based on. Just use another resoultion.

* Relics cannot be attached to javelins
- Current state of the art for 1h ranged weapons. May never be possible.
- Though they are strong regardless, one can use the Defiler's "relics in all" mod to allow it.

* Using the "Mod" option in TQVault shows proper item pictures, but fewer characters.
- That option is only designed for mods started directly from "custom game", like Lilith.
- Use the regular Vault to transfer D2I items. You can distinguish the [?] by their Tag names.


Disclaimer

As the name suggests, D2I is built upon the Immortal Throne expansion, so use it with normal TQ at your own peril. Loading it over a modded base game is possible, and usually works, but do so at your own risk. Camera mods etc. are fine.

Though D2I does fix many issues of the original game by itself, and all files it does include are of the latest version, it is also (generally) recommended that you get the Bugfix Fanpatch.

Where can I see the main differences between this and Lilith version (one big difference being the story and map change of cource) But I want to know details like, are the new bosses in Lilith or the unique diablo 2 loot and so on?

Everything that fits is also in D2 Lilith. Chest lootables are being shared anyway, and all D2I bosses and most heroes have been built into the Lilith storyline - which makes some of them appear much earlier than in D2I, btw.

The only things D2 Lilith does not have are some changes concerning the normal monsters, which are still mostly Lilith's own. (That mainly means that they have their old resistances.)
Even so, they already drop dexterity weapons, and many of them also received the new skills of their D2I pendants.

And, of course, things specific to the TQIT map, like the secret passage and one secret endgame quest.

You can find the adjusted update list in the D2L thread at Titanquest.net

Two small, cosmetic updates that will be part of the 1.61 fix patch but can be applied already without changing versions:

Dropbox.com
Dropbox.com

Those .arc files go into either mod's /resources folder to replace the existing ones.

One includes a nicer (more diffuse) aura effect for the Valkyrie.

The other adds -at last- a custom made animation for the Staff Attack, instead of the more or less fitting existing ones that have been used before.
With this being the first skill people see of the mod, it was about time it looked good.
