more work than it's worth and not very effective since you can't be sure that the game has saved your newest find.DougTheHead2 said:Personally, I would just drop the old one without alt-tabbing and grab the new one. When you're done, open up a backup with the old charm and resurrect it. I think its "cleaner" (to me of course) this way.
When I say open a backup, I'm talking copy the .XXX (stupid memory! w/e the backup is) and paste it somewhere else (say desktop). Rename it d2s, take off the gheeds, delete the file, wala. (didn't want to confuse you there, cause an overwrite in your d2 folder )
EDIT: I must chip in the above is not tested, as I have not been lucky enough to find 2 gheeds yet (i blame durf).
no you're notRavenclaw said:i had a different impression altogether...
i thought there was some way you could dump your stuff into atma without quitting the game - y'know, when your stash AND inventory is chock-full, and you need to generate space for that super item which just dropped...???
i am wrong, no?

If you kill everything once and do full clean (or full clean -1: just too keep the red portal open in hell), P8 normal & NM, P1 hell (my usual setting). You will come cross at least three or four if you have handfull of mat/pat/guardian. If you use the first gheed, and a second one drop, you will have to hot mule.Analist said:
It's happened to me twice or thrice. As I usually use the same character for MF runs, a second Gheed's doesn't hold much value for me. Standard procedure is to drop my current one, grab and ID the new one, and keep whichever one has better stats (the %MF being the most significant, obviously). I am now (and have been for a long time) a proud owner of a 40%MF Gheed's, so I really have no need of another. However, in the course of normal questing, I've found some stuff, so I have one or two in an ATMA stash.Analist said:
No, this is called cheating, and anything found by this way must be deleted (include the char who use them). If anyone trade/MF with this, he/she will be banned, no question ask.pharaoh said:A cheesy thing to do (I haven't done this, but mention it because it's along the same lines as Farting Bob's 'Wirtadin', in that it uses ATMA to equip gear that is otherwise not allowable) is to use ATMA to equip multiple Gheed's Greed- err, Fortune- charms. With anything but a minimal MF one, it would be more efficient (inventory-wise) than perfect MF small charms.
DeathMaster said:The only reason anyone would hot mule is to pick up another gheed, since there are only couple of ways you can "pick" more than one gheed, hot mule is the best solution. I don't see any other need for hot mule.
When I quest, I normally face the same problem as you do. However, you can use the "mouse pointer storage". It works for me everytime (max extra 4x2 space!!).linkato1 said:That's not true., I'm gathering my grail while questing and need to free space in my inventory once in a while.
But I do not want to wade trough the newly created monsters that would be there if I saved before muling.
That's your opinion. Note I merely mentioned it, but said I don't do it. Even if I did MF like that, who are you to say I "will be banned, no question ask (sic)"? As long as people offering items don't deceive others (such as claiming a find in vanilla D2 that was really in a dropmod, or whatever), everything is cool. You should check the forum rules before you try to assume the role of the mods.DeathMaster said:No, this is called cheating, and anything found by this way must be deleted (include the char who use them).
