Gamer Nightz #1: Diablo 2 For Everyone

Gamer Nightz is just a fun idea of having once every week (or 2 weeks) a new set of games to play with everyone from FA community. It gives the chance for people to play different games on a friday night with people they know =D (not some random strangers and help introduce people to more games out there :lol: ). Anyone can suggest a game, and I will post a poll in the gaming discussion thread to organize future gatherings for different games =D (Vote or suggest whatever you like and I'll add it to polls)

 

We will be having a Diablo 2 LAN game next week on wednesday (20th) or friday (22th). The date may have to be moved back until we can find a time that suits everyone.

 

The reason we are playing Lan is because many members don't have the retail copy and instead a torrented one (if you don't have it just google it lol. I cannot give you the sites =P). Therefore there CD-key cannot be registered online to play on Battle.net. So far we have 4 people and a single game can host up to 8. So if you would like play with us, just post a comment or message me.

 

Rules:

4-8 players (and if more people would like to play, I can run a 2nd lan game on my other computer)

No Hero Editors or Weapon Editors!!

No cheats enabled !!

 

Game:

IP/GAME NAME - F|A HAMACHI

Password - none

 

HOW TO CONNECT IN DIABLO 2 CLIENT:

At title screen go to "OTHER MULTIPLAYER" --> "TCP/IP GAME" --> Join Game --> Type in the hosts IP address that you see in hamachi

 

Downloads Required (Easy and Simple Guide):

 

Diablo II + Expansion: I cannot give you the link for this but if you search google I am sure you can find a torrent. You will also need dameon tools or power iso (or any ISO mount tool) in order to install the game (you will have to swap dvds/iso which it will prompt you to do so. Also mount the play disc to play after instaling because there is no "no-cd" crack for diablo 2). It is relatively easy but if you need assistance tell me and I'll guide you through in less than 2 mins

 

Hamachi: http://hamachi.en.softonic.com/

*This program is essential to playing Lan. Easiest program to use I ever seen. Just click make profile, join existing network and then type in the IP or Network Name I give you

 

Patch 1.12: http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?locale=en_US&articleId=20758

*This is the latest patch which will ensure better stability and less glitches =D. Just double click and it will install in the Diablo 2 directory default location. No effort required

 

 

Tech Support

Common Problems with Vista: Run in admin mode (Lol we should all know that by now) and in properties checkmark "Disable Desktop Compositions".

 

Video card issue #1: If you find that the colours are weird or the game won't work (or bad fps), go to Programs --> Diablo II --> Video test and then click skip test and select "DirectDraw 2d" (2d and 3d versions make little difference. 3d version is not as stable and depends on how your video card likes it too).

 

Video card issue #2: If all else fails (including driver updates ..etc), go to properties and run in 256 color mode (which the game fully supports lol) and it should work (it won't look as good though if you have a 21' monitor. But it is a old game so it wouldn't matter in the first place =P).

I'm in, maybe not one of the following weeks (exams), but I'd play for sure. It also depends heavily on time when you guys would play.

I believe it is going to be friday or the weekend (no one decided yet lol). Also where do you live and what time are you available =P (everyone lives in different time zone so it will be a tough choice)

I used to be addicted to that game, easy to play and the random drop tables, variety of weaponry unparalleled in any game since.

I am going to dl it and join in the game =D

 

btw, the first boss is rather mean, I always seemed to die on it once or twice, each of the hundred or so times I have faced her on beginner characters. So don't feel to bad about it hulk.

:00000000000000z0rz! Diablo 2 (One of the uber-greatest-games-of-all time-that-is-not-an-fps.) got me through the dark years of high-school!

 

Do any of you guys use a D2 battlenet account? (I know your using hamachi for this, but was just curious if anyone still played retail)

Duriel is pretty mean. I've had tough battles against Nilithak and ba'al before too..... If anyone has ever played through the game using a hardcore character you know what I mean :D

Diablo and expansion are running, patched (hopefully I did it right) and Hamachi also works (somewhat, networks seems to be clogged), so ready to play. Any info about time so far?

 

 

And Andariel, Duriel and that blacksmith in hell are the worst. Also that petty thief at Diablo seals. Hardcore :blink: I'd never finish the game that way.

 

EDIT: Managed to connect to F|A Hamachi :yahoo

Diablo 2 LOD one of the most fun games i've played. Even had a 10 hour straight lan with 3 of my friends at home once =)

Would want to play with you guys even though i don't know many FA people. If you have less than 8 ppl let me know

There is no real time to be honest =P. Lol i get home around 7 pm PST. But anyone can host a game as long as they are connected (just type in the hosts IP and you can join that persons game).

 

At title screen go to "OTHER MULTIPLAYER" --> "TCP/IP GAME" --> Join Game --> Type in the hosts IP address that you see in hamachi
