Basically a project to play with friends in LAN : QoL features, faster XP, better drops, ladder content unlocked, few surprises...

(There is also a PvPgn server to play together :)

Language :
Works on both French and English games.
Fonctionne aussi bien sur un jeu Français que Anglais.

Game version :
This mod works with the 1.13c patch of Diablo II Classic & Diablo II LoD (some features will not be available in Classic)

My hirelings now speak French but everything else remains in English. Only thing I saw in the Readme was about having language packs installed to switch the games language. Any idea?

Also can't seem to get BH maphack to work. Unhandled exception for some reason. Works on other 1.13c versions of Diablo.

EDIT Ahhh after further experimenting it seems like this isn't compatible with.... well, anything. Maphacks, editors, other mods, just about anything crashes it. Ah well, at least this comment may save someone else some time.

Hello !

Yeah, I added a fix for the french hireling voice, but as the language of the game is defined by the installation language, my fix override the original... I think about make a more complete installation to be able to choose the game language. With two different version of the mod, French and English.

Regarding BH, the resolution mod should work.

For the char editor, I suggest UdieToo. Make a shortcuts, and put the path of the game folder in the shortcut “start in” option. that way, the editor will launch with modifications bring by the mod :)

Have fun and happy new year !!!

Hello !
If you played Diablo I, it's at the same location.
If not, take a look at the west of the map :)
