Still a Pentium 133 MHz, huh? :wink:Bugger, I'd thought you'd found a sneaky back way to Mephy. In my case threre'd be very little point in going to Act 4 to save a handful of seconds. I already take up to 30 seconds to save and reload, add that to the several seconds each time I change acts, and that five second time saving becomes half nothing really.
I've never tried the -ns command, because my sight is not great, multifocals and colourblind, so I rely on sound to listen for drops and so I can tell whether I'm being hit. It easier to just put up with the lag.Have you tried "-ns" in the program command line? How many seconds does that shave off for you when starting a game/switching acts?
I have to disagree - considering that my average Mephisto run takes 25 seconds, 5 to 6 seconds more per run equal to 200-240 runs less.I submit, Joeyzon, that a player committed to doing 1000 or more runs wouldn't be bothered at all by those 5000-6000 seconds. 100 minutes... an hour and half... doesn't figure into the motivation required to do 1000 runs.
i totally lol'ed :funnyabove:You're right Shag....I'm wrong. I'm sorry to the rest of the forum for giving such terrible information. Please forgive me...I will go along my way and continue to play Diablo 2 LOD the way that I want to...just like you do. The OP gave a scenario where he can get to Meph in 15 seconds. I simply gave him an option to get there even quicker, and if I was wrong...then I sincerely apologize. I did not mean to bump heads with someone who is clearly better than me, and who wants to point out how wrong I am. Don't worry...it WILL NOT happen again..
-ns disables the in game sound entirely, shaving off a few seconds (depending on your hardware) when loading a game. This is especially useful when running Pindle or Mephisto, both targets you can run in under 30 seconds.quick question: what does the -ns command do? i just found out about the "-skiptobnet" command. its nice. is there a list somewhere with all the different commands?
