No.
It's another mod (different folder name).

I got a crush in the Cold Plains
***** UNHANDLED EXCEPTION: ACCESS_VIOLATION (c0000005)
Fault address: 6FB38AB7 01:00087AB7 E:\Diablo II LoD 1.13c\D2SE\CORES\1.13c\D2Client.dll
The crash occurred when the Frigid Sphere hit some monster

Folks, I don't get any crash anywhere (on 3 different machines).
I gave you the best D2 1.13c base.
Did you use it?

p.s.
If your D2 installation is such a mess, try to delete the D2Game.dll in this folder.
Or, if you have the 1.13c base, you can use only the provided patch_d2.mpq file.

I've made a short test for the "crash guys":
1) use the D2 base from here: Moddb.com
2) replace the patch_d2.mpq file from here: Moddb.com
Do not alter the D2 base with anything (no PlugY, no D2SE, no other files).
Be sure you play on DirectDraw (no Glide!).
3) The result: everything runs smooth, not a single issue!

ok, tomorrow I'll try the mod in the ddraw mode and report the result (I play in d2se with plugy)

Just use this D2 1.13c base: Moddb.com

For me it runs perfect in any environment.
I tried (for the "crash guys") with:
1) D2 base only
2) D2SE and new patch_d2.mpq file
3) D2SE, PlugY and new patch_d2.mpq file
4) D2SE, Plugy, new D2Game.dll and new patch_d2.mpq file (the provided ZIP file).
Not a single error!

good luck

how to reset skill? i tried it using plugy but skill points do not return heheh

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

You get 2 skill points per level-up, so I don't see any reason to "reset" them.

Anyway, that's a PlugY setting:

[SKILLS POINTS]
ActiveSkillsUnassignment=1

yep i already tried that.. it only reset the level of skill, but the point i spent do not return

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

That means there is a conflict between PlugY and your D2 base.
I gave you all the files you need.
Use them!

Sorry, but I cannot fix PlugY bugs.
Again, you get 2 skill points per level-up, so I don't see any reason to reset them.

None of the methods did not help. The crash always happens. In the last frame, I see some yellow flash from the skill cast by the mercenary. See the screenshot:
C.radikal.ru
Perhaps if you play without a mercenary, there will be no crash.

Tested with all the characters, with or without mercenary.
I don't get any crash at all.
Are you using this D2 base: Moddb.com ?
Did you set the language to ENG?

D.radikal.ru
Even with the use of the d2base you offer, a crash occurs when a mercenary uses some skill. The yellow flash is the beginning of the cast, and therefore the moment of the crash.
English is set by default.

I did never see a skill like that on the Act 1 mercenary.
Are you using the default/standard D2LOD MPQ files?

Reply Good karma+1 vote
RemusM Author
RemusM

Yes, the rogue Priestess has some skills, but as I expected, that flash in your screenshots is not the skill.
See this video: Moddb.com
So if you get crashes for that flash, you might have issues with the sound system.
Start the game with "nosound" and see if it still crashes for you.

i keep crashing in stony field on me regular d2se folder
try'd whatever ur 1.13 base is but cant get it to start. a little
guide on how to proper install whould be nice. so i download ur D2 Base > copy patch_d2.mpq from ur mod in and then ?

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

You don't copy any patch_d2.mpq from my mod.

You have a screenshot here: Moddb.com with all the files.
That has to be the content of your Diablo 2 LOD folder (you also need those 10 large MPQ files).
See the last 11 MPQ files: Necromanthus.com
I gave you patch_d2.mpq, you need the rest.

Reinstall D2SE 2.2.0 (PK Edition) if needed.
Copy the Necromanthus_MedianXL folder into the MODS folder.
Launch D2SE and select the mod.
That's all.

yea idk i guess im just not good at this it seems. keep getting this "ACCESS_VIOLATION (c0000005)" errors.
Also it seems that d2se 2.2 has some problems with the diablo 2 downloaded from battle.net. found some work arounds on google but that seems like alot trouble too

also i dont have this mpq files or any clue what they are

My Diablo 2 LOD base is a mixture between an original CD from 2006, the official 1.13c update and some updated DLLs (pay attention in that screenshot to the files date).
Anyway, if you have the large MPQ files:
- create a folder (C:\D2LOD)
- put those 10 large MPQ files in that folder
- unzip D2LOD_113c_base.zip into that folder.
- install D2SE 2.2.0 into that folder
- unzip Necromanthus_MedianXL.zip into C:\D2LOD\MODS\
- launch C:\D2LOD\D2SE.exe (as Administrator and in Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode).

It always worked for me on various machines.

a lot of skills cause crash
this mod is unstable

In fact your D2LOD base is unstable.
The mod is 8 years old and finished by hundreds of players without any crash.

To all the "crash" guys:
A game mod cannot be unstable.
A game mod is patching the game base.
If a game mod is trying to patch non-existing things in the game base you'll get crashes!
What's now on Battle.net is not good for D2SE and game mods.
You need to find the original MPQ files and the original 1.13c patch.
good luck

See my reply to andsimo 8 days ago:

"So if you get crashes for that flash, you might have issues with the sound system.
Start the game with "nosound" and see if it still crashes for you."

Again, that indicates your D2 base is not good.
With my D2 base I can play any game mod WITH SOUND and WITHOUT ANY CRASH.
cheers

For the "crash" guys I've updated the ZIP (MPQ) file with a version without custom sounds.
Try to play the game WITH sounds and see if it still crashes for you.

Read the Summoning_Uberquests.txt and Challenges.txt files in the "docs" folder.
For most of the quests you'll get a charm as reward.
These are the charms: Moddb.com

Hi!
I have one question:

Not sets?
for the cube recipes... which ones do we use? the median xl ones or the necromanthus ones?

Thank you!

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

There are no set charms in Median XL.
But you can find set items ("sacred") on the last level of difficulty (your level will be 120).
