    Game Changes Help Thread (inc ATMA/GoMule)

    This thread provides support for all of the game alterations allowed in the SP(T)F only. Always use a vanilla installation for Realm play/trading.

    Other mods/mod-making isn't supported here, please use The Phrozen Keep for that. This forum will not assist with editors of any kind.

    Please read the forum rules and Accepted Gameplay Rules for details on acceptable play in the SP(T)F. You may find the SPF FAQ and the D2 Terms and Abbreviations thread useful.


    Accepted alterations

    Muling = ATMA - GoMule
    Singling
    Rune colouration = Red Rune Mod (obsolete for 1.13) - Silospens Colour Rune Mod
    Runeword activation = Rune Word Mod
    Reporting = Flavie
    Modified .dll for multi instances
    Game Varients = Median - Hell Unleashed - Eastern Sun


    Unsupported mods/practices

    Pretty much anything not listed above or in the Accepted Gameplay Rules. If in doubt, SPF Moderator for clarification and wait for a response before posting.


    Links to supported mods, muling applications and utilities

    These are things that make the life of an SPF'er easier and more fun. All .7z files are .zip files (you can rename them if you don't have 7zip.

    Muling applications

    This is a way of moving items around. It also allows a large number of items to be kept in stashes away from your D2 character. ATMA is the original muling utility, GoMule is a java-based utility that also works on Macs.

    Both applications read each others files.

    .d2s is save, .d2x is a stash file, .org are ATMA backups. If you rename .orgs to .d2s or .d2x (depending on what it is) you can open it in ATMA or GoMule. ATMA supports .d2i files but these should NOT be used. GoMule works better than ATMA with large (1000+ item) stashes.

    ATMA - Installer download - guide
    To get the Essences to show correctly in 1.13 download and install Misc1.13cATMA.7z and atma_gfxATMA1.13c.zip (both zip files). Replace the originals which come with the installer. Keep Tokens and Essences on Characters not Stashes in ATMA
    GoMule - download and guide - The latest version of GoMule is here which works with 1.13. Tokens and Essences work fine in characters and stashes in GoMule


    Symantec flagging ATMA as a virus/adware

    It is a false positive. This post and this post shows how to get around it.

    A. Go to Options -> Game Edit and click on the "Character Link" tab. The last option (freeform) should be checked. If not, click on it and hit Apply.

    Game Modifications

    These change the game out of the box in some way. There are three which are accepted on the SPF:
    RWM enables Bnet only runewords. RRM changes the colours of runes to red. CRM enables changing the rune colours to many different colours.
    Remember that with 1.13 runes are orange.If you are updating to 1.13 from an installation which had RRM installed be sure to delete all the .bin files or you may not get the 1.13 drop rate for runes see here.

    RWM for PC- download - Guide in download
    RRM for PC - download - Guide
    NOTE the .7z file is a .zip file with RWM/RRM conveniently packaged together. Just unzip that in the D2 folder as it is, change the shortcuts so they match the last photo in the guide and you should have BOTH RWM and RRM working.

    Singling - combined RWM/multi-instance .dll - download and information

    CRM for PC- download

    RWM/RRM for Macs here - download - Guide


    RWM/RRM and Ubuntu

    This one confused me for a while and in the end I repacked the MPQ's with the mods included so they'd work.

    But recently, I found out how to do it without that.

    3 important steps:

    1) Install the mods in the normal way - Note you have to install RWM in the base dir, not a seperate one like the guide suggests.

    So you should have something similar to:

    D2 dir: /home/you/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Diablo 2
    RWM: /home/you/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Diablo 2/data/global/excel/Runes.txt
    RRM: /home/you/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Diablo 2/data/local/lng/eng/expansionstring.tbl
    /home/you/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Diablo 2/data/local/lng/eng/patchstring.tbl

    2) IMPORTANT: Cd to the base d2 directory: cd /home/you/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Diablo 2

    If you recall, windows has a box in shortcuts that says "run in". This is not present in Linux, the "run in" variable is taken from the current directory the terminal is in. This is the step I missed and without it, you won't be able to run the mods.

    3)
    wine Diablo II.exe -direct -txt -ns -w

    (Or without the ns and w if you want sound and full screen )

    Hope that works!

    Reporting Utilities

    Flavie is a reporting tool which can show you how many of each unique, set, rune and gems you have and whether they are in use, eth or in a stash.

    Flavie - download


    Character Planners

    Some good online ones are in the SPF FAQ for offline planning use:
    Charsi by Mursilis - download and guide here. Also available here.


    D2 and Macs

    D2 and Macs by Jamiesixgun

    Other Game Changes


    Modified d2gfx.dll to run more than one copy of D2 at a time - downloads - download the version you need and rename the file to d2gfx.dll

    Note this is including in Singling.


    D2 Variants

    These are variants of D2 with different gameplay. MP and trading withing these varients are allowed but they may not interact with 'normal, out of the box' D2. No other mods (nor items from them) are accepted here.

    Median - download - support
    Probably the best known mod. Incredibly work by Laz.

    Eastern Sun - download and information

    Hell Unleashed for 1.10 - link unavailable due to host site content


    Other information

    Stopwatch programs for longer period timing links here
    Run counters - JJs and K-T's download links here - Silo's advanced counter here
    Charsi skill planner - download - support

    Re: Game Changes Help Thread (inc ATMA/GoMule)

    So I still can't get Silo's run counter to save my characters and subsequently, the profiles associated with them. Anyone know of any diagnostics I might try? I've reinstalled it a few times. For reference, it works fine on my laptop, just not on the new pc

    Remind me, Daz, you're using the same Windows versions? Both are admins? Both Java's are the same?

    Re: Game Changes Help Thread (inc ATMA/GoMule)

    I need a little help getting GoMule to work (again).

    How do I get GoMule to look in the correct folders? My game characters are stored in the AppData\Local\VirtualStore\ProgramFiles(x86) folder.

    GoMule won't look there. If I try to open a character file, those do not show up as options.

    If I move the files, will the game still work?

    Thanks.

    If everything's working with the game, don't move the files. AppData is a hidden folder, but you can still access it through the file browser in GoMule by typing it in when you're on your user's home folder (e.g., browse to c:\users\Goldtru and then type in AppData and hit ok/enter).

    That worked, thank you.

    One further question. I have several stashes in Atma that are .d2x files. But GoMule can only see two of them. When I type in the file name, GoMule doesn't see the file. What should I do?

    Can you get to these files using the regular Windows file explorer?

    Yes I can. I can see them in Windows explorer and I can move them around.

    Re: Game Changes Help Thread (inc ATMA/GoMule)

    That's strange. Are they in the same place as your working .d2x files? Can you try moving them elsewhere to see if GoMule will then see them?

    Is it something silly like the file is called "stash.d2x.org" and you are hiding the file extensions in Windows file explorer? This would make it look like a .d2x file in Windows explorer, but GoMule would see it as an .org (backup) file and filter it out of the list.
