Announcement Windows 8 and PlugY

Post by wash on Sat Dec 06, 2014 2:46 am

I just recently installed PlugY but my friend cannot get it to work on Windows 8 (im on 7). We have the same game version and played before no problem. Obviously we both need to have PlugY but he cant get it to work. He tried fresh diablo 2 install and PlugY (installer dosnt work for both of us so we just used the zip folder and dropped all the content into the main diablo 2 folder) ran the PatchD2gfxDll and it says "Bad version of D2gfx.dll. You can try to uninstall any previous version of PlugY then retry. Or Re-install diablo 2 ..... bla bla bla. Has anyone encountered this issue? Thinking

I'm using plugy on win8 and have no issues. Not using d2se. What I did was install fresh d2 (from original cd version). Update to 1.13c. Download plugy10 zip and extract all contents to d2 directory. Download medianxl archive. Extract only the mpq to d2( NOT the plugy.ini and other stuff there).

[Optional step if you don't want eye cancer: install d2 glide wrapper and configure as shown in thread on this forum, also check last post in that thread for my settings to fix windowed mode stretch bug with pointer]

[Optional step if you don't want to have your eyes bleed out: install aahz custom font for diablo and respective plugy.ini fix]

Then go to d2 dir and run patchD2gfxDll.exe as administrator.

Thats it. Make sure to run game as administrator. No compatibility settings in shortcut necessary.

seems that your friend has 1.13d installed which plugy doesn't support
