Error when starting a new character

Post by revjakes on Tue Sep 10, 2013 4:15 pm

"Generic Bad Character File. This may not be a character from the Mod. If you have Plugy..."

This is a fresh copy of D2. I don't have any items in my shared stash, I don't even have any items. This is the first time I've played with the latest mod. I've tried with and without plugY.

Only thing I can think of is that I am using the Direct Play version of Diablo 2. Which means I can extract the Diablo 2 zip file to any folder on the computer and run the game without installing. This works fine for vanilla.

Any thoughts on what might be my issue if not the Direct Play?

When you lauch "Median", does it actually show the MedianXL mainmenu screen or the original D2 one?

If it would be a problem with the "Direct Play" then you'd probably wouldn't even be able to launch the game at all.
Try to:
1) Run as admin
2) Possibly extract the zip in a different folder? And then try again running with/without admin?
Besides, I can't really think on anything

Ran as admin and it worked. What a fool I was. Thanks for the help.
