View Full Version : Hellfire Mana Shield bug: fixed or not?
Taken from the D1 Spellbooks section:
Damage reduction in Hellfire: Bugged. The spell is supposed to increase the damage reduction with increasing levels, but actually does the opposite. Formula: 100/(3· slvl)% The max slvl is 7, in this formula.
Does that mean that the damage reduction stops increasing at lvl 7, or that it actually starts DECREASING past that lvl? Also, was this bug fixed in v1.01 for Hellfire?
This was fixed in 1.07 of Diablo: http://diablo.wikia.com/wiki/Patch_1.07_(Diablo_I) "Fixed the bug that caused Mana Shield to become less effective with increasing spell level."
I'm not sure if that means it now has full effect at slvl 1, or if you need to get it up to slvl 7 for that.
Flux mentioned in a thread somewhere here that Hellfire is based on 1.04 of Diablo, and that the Hellfire patch takes it up to 1.06. Certainly I know that fully-patched Hellfire is not equivalent to Diablo 1.08, which prevents you from creating multiplayer characters in Windows Vista in Hellfire because it saves the files into the windows directory (yes, really!), whereas in 1.08 of Diablo that is fixed to save them into the Diablo directory.
I have Diablo up to 1.09 and Hellfire up to 1.01. Does my Diablo version have any bearing on how Hellfire performs? In other words, will my Hellfire play like Diablo 1.09 with the expansion features added on (meaning it will include the Mana Shield fix) or will it be like going back to Diablo 1.06? Also, is Hellfire 1.01 fully patched, or does it go further than that?
I didn't know that you could run Hellfire separately from Diablo, unless perhaps you have the game installed twice? Anyway, the patches are entirely separate, however you've got it done, so Hellfire won't gain any benefit from Diablo patches, and vice versa.
And yes, 1.01 is the final patch for Hellfire.
Well, when I installed Hellfire, it was simply added on as a separate game instead of replacing Diablo (like LoD does to D2). I don't think I did anything I wasn't supposed to.
So, if Hellfire 1.01 = Diablo 1.06, I guess that means Hellfire never recieved the Mana Sheild fix. Bummer.
Does anyone know what that forumula from the wiki page means? It's not explained very well. I already have the spell at lvl 1, and it will get bumped up to at least lvl 2 once I'm able to trasnfer the Dreamflange I found over to my sorc.
