Default Diablo - DevilutionX v1.3 Released

November 3rd, 2021, 23:21
A new version of DevilutionX (1.3) for Diablo has been released. You can read the changelog here.



What is DevilutionX

DevilutionX is a source port of Diablo and Hellfire that strives to make it simple to run the game while providing engine improvements, bugfixes, and some optional quality of life features.

Check out the manual for what features are available and how best to take advantage of them.

For a full list of changes see our changelog.

How to Install

Note: You'll need access to the data from the original game. If you don't have an original CD then you can buy Diablo from GoG.com. Alternately you can use spawn.mpq from the shareware version, in place of DIABDAT.MPQ, to play the shareware portion of the game.

Download the latest DevilutionX release and extract the contents to a location of your choosing or build from source.

  • Copy DIABDAT.MPQ from the CD or GOG-installation (or extract it from the GoG installer) to the DevilutionX folder.
  • To run the Diablo: Hellfire expansion you will need to also copy hellfire.mpq, hfmonk.mpq, hfmusic.mpq, hfvoice.mpq.
For more detailed instructions: Installation Instructions.

Really nice of you to post this. I've been following the project since it started and it's very active. Future updates (1.4) should also be nice.

Your welcome. I always like to see classic old school games supported like this. Another one I spotted recently was an open source prince of persia. It has a quicksave and much more.

I just wish that somehow the source code will be found for prince of persia 2.
