Default Diablo 2 - v1.12 Patch

June 18th, 2008, 12:26
Huh. Our first Diablo II post here at RPGWatch. Blizzard has released a v1.12 patch that removes the copy protection:
- Patch 1.12

Downloadable Installer Support

- If all required Diablo 2 '.MPQ' files are installed on the hard drive, the game will no longer require the CD to play.

For users that originally performed a 'Full Installation' and wish to run without the CD, all '.MPQ' files should be copied from the Diablo 2 CDs to the Diablo 2 directory. Most users will only need to copy D2Music.mpq from the Diablo 2 Play CD and/or D2xMusic.mpq from the Lord of Destruction CD. Mac users will need to copy these music files and rename them to 'Diablo II Music' and 'Diablo II Expansion Music' respectively.

Anyone who did not perform a 'Full Installation' will need to re-install from CD again to ultimately play without the CD. In this case, a 'Full Installation' is required, followed by file copy step noted above.

Bug Fixes

- Fixed an incompatibility between Rosetta and OpenGL mode on Intel Mac.
More information.

I'll be surprised if they don't announce D3 in Paris.

I agree woges—if, that is, they *ever* plan to announce it. I'm willing to bet it's 99% an MMO, also.

Amazing they're still patching this game—the original company, not the fans. Looked at the date on my disc and it's 2000.

Still patching AND still providing free online play 8 years later. Many folks might not like Blizzard's vision of RPG-ness, but precious few game companies treat their players so well.

Exactly, especially when they have a powerhouse like WoW to bring in the players and the cash. To still devote staff hours and servers to their Diablo fans is an extra that many companies would have let fall by the wayside years ago.

In a way, it's finally a "no-CD patch".

Which I find quite nice.
