Use the following link to download a .zip file which contains both the 1.109 game dll and the older frontiers model directory. This is required for playing D2 and having keeps display correctly in realm mode.https://www.dropbox.com/s/6tmxr4hf9cpuf ... s.zip?dl=0
MAKE BACKUPS FIRST!
I recommend you make a new directory for playing on DOL servers but at a minimum you should
backup your game.dll and frontiers directories.
These files are required to run on some older DOL servers, including Storm D2. This will
replace your game.dll with the 1.109 version and the frontiers graphcis directory with
the older keep versions.
The easiest thing to do is to rename frontiers to frontiers_new
and game.dll to game.dll.live and then unzip the contents of this .zip file into your game directory.
Having some issues with the database, slow to respond and regions locking up. I'm doing a medium check on the DB which could take an hour to two to complete.
edit: well that didn't take very long. No issues found, D2 is back online.
Storm D2 does not work with any client version past 1.109. You can download the 1.109 DLL here -> http://www.mediafire.com/?763i3ia6j4y3yotChanges from Tolakram:
It's been almost a year, time for some new content! As usual, this is just introduced and I will be ever so slowly increasing the content, drops, and quests as time permits.D2 Hell zone
Added: Hell players can pick up a quest in Cotswold to go to the new hell zone.
There is a new zone available just for hell players with mobs level 36 - 135+. These mobs have a higher resistance than most world mobs and killing them is a little slower and more risky than the other modes. All drops unique to this region will have an increased drop chance due to the slower kill speeds. For fully optimized players this will be a good area to farm.
You can access D2 Hell via the task dungeon entrance outside of Cotswold.
There is one unique item type that will only drop in this zone to help entice people to visit.Armor Pattern Kit~
The Armor pattern kit item will pick up the model and type of any armor it's dropped on and can then transfer this model to any other piece of armor of the same type (legs, arms, torso, etc.). Once used to transfer a new model to an item it will save the old model so you can revert the change if desired. In other words, these items are never used up.
Once an Armor pattern kit is initialized it will be named indicating the type of armor it can work on. Armor Pattern Kit (H) will only work on helms, for example. HGTLF are the letters used, G = Gloves (hands).
Have fun making your elite gear look exactly like you want it too!Other Changes:
The cap for Healing Effectiveness has been increased from 50% to 200%
The cap for Critical Heal Chance has been increased from 50% to 90%
The base RP reward for all mobs in hell will increase to 1250 RP per mob
