Hi all, i've registered for the forums after spending a good couple of weeks' worth of lunch hours scouring all these threads and having a whale of a time (no pun intended) reminiscing over them. I've recently dusted off the game that i first started playing probably 10 years ago, and finally got it working in XP. Got a 20clvl rogue and just turned my sorc (my fave character) in to a 30clvl so will probably attempt some hell/church runs for more books and shrines later today. I thought i played this game to death but obviously didn't as i never did find these ridiculously good zodiac rings you all talk about. I would imagine these are mostly found in hell/hell runs and i think in the past my best character level was around 35 so didn't attempt too many of them. I therefore feel i have a lot more playing to do before i reach my goals I have a few more boring things i would like help with if you please, and have come across some threads in my travels but; I am currently playing on the straight-out-of-the-box v1.0 which is less through choice and more through not successfully finding a patch i can get to work. I have tried a few v1.07 patches but when i try and patch them i get some sort of error that i cannot think of off the top of my head. Could anyone give me links to any working patches for the most up to date or best version of D1 and a quick little step-by-step on how to patch it successfully? One reason for doing so is because i understand on newer patches the MP character directories are saved in a more obvious folder for easier backing up. This is my main reason for wanting to update, as i am currently playing this on a flat-mates laptop and will be moving out in a month. I don't particularly want to start all over again and want to legitimately take my characters with me (for the record, i have only ever been a legitimate player in any game). Any help/tips/advice/random chit-chat is appreciated!
