    New Patch!

    I dont know how many of you tried, but I just connected to bnet and downloaded a new patch!
    Here is the log -

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    - Patch 1.12
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Downloadable Installer Support

    - If all required Diablo 2 '.MPQ' files are installed on the
    hard drive, the game will no longer require the CD to play.

    For users that originally performed a 'Full Installation'
    and wish to run without the CD, all '.MPQ' files should
    be copied from the Diablo 2 CDs to the Diablo 2 directory.
    Most users will only need to copy D2Music.mpq from the
    Diablo 2 Play CD and/or D2xMusic.mpq from the Lord of
    Destruction CD. Mac users will need to copy these music
    files and rename them to 'Diablo II Music' and
    'Diablo II Expansion Music' respectively.

    Anyone who did not perform a 'Full Installation' will need
    to re-install from CD again to ultimately play without the CD.
    In this case, a 'Full Installation' is required, followed by file
    copy step noted above.

    Bug Fixes

    - Fixed an incompatibility between Rosetta and OpenGL mode on Intel Mac.


    I really hope there is more to this patch like new areas/quests/items etc

    i agree, new SOMETHING would be nice / :
    at the least, some new items, preferably some edits to skills to make more builds good (like hydra's better?)

    If you are reading that, then you are reading much more deeply than I am capable of.

    Sometimes they will make changes to the game server side and not necessarily tell anyone client side - but if it affects gameplay they usually will make some announcement.

    All I can say is finally they release a no CD patch. Only took them 10 patches or so to figure it out.

    And not on SP either, unless you use a mod. Seems this patch is only an official no-cd crack along with a random mac bug fix.

    I've heard that all of the cd keys that people bought online no longer work.

    Also when I was going through act 2 and got to the end of the maggot lair there was no giant maggot or staff. I think it might be connected to fixing glitched rushing and skipping quest because I didn't do radament.

    Only the No-CD was changed, AFAIK. No changes are made to the MPQ files when patching. Some things might've been altered server-side, but otherwise, there is nothing different between 1.11b and 1.12.

    the patch includes no data but many dll files, so i believe there are no changes in items, skills, but some changes in anti- third party plugins

    Something tells me those .dll files will be explored, circumvented and made hacks for by the end of today. However, there's always the hope of a mass CD-key banning of hack users before they figure it out ;)

    That will only help for single player and I guess Blizzard probably doesn't care too much about it (which doesn't mean that it's OK to use pirate copies for single player), else they wouldn't have released that patch.

    On bnet, the CD key is probably looked up in a database table with all CD keys ever delivered. If your key isn't in there or if it's marked as banned, bnet will refuse access. There's no way around that just by hacking up the game files on your local computer.
