New to this game, please help me get set up right... I am new to D2, but have played Titan Quest/Immortal Throne for ages. I have a true network, including a private server and multiple PCs, for our family gaming time. We don't do the online battle.net stuff, but do play multiplayer games together across the LAN. And, we patched D2 up to 1.13c today. Having experience with TQ/IM, and gone through some headaches caused by crashed drives, corrupt mules, files you wish you could get to that are in somebody else's private directory, etc., there is a particular environment I would like to create to be able to work best together, and I have some questions as to whether it can be done in D2 (and how, if it can be), and/or which of the mods/add-ons would work best for us. Ultimately, what I would like to have is all our character data in our private home directories (safe on the network), a shared repository of goodies in another network share directory, where we can all get to it to pull and make contributions to it. 1) How to force character data saves to a network share: I notice the characters store locally to C:\Programs\Diablo II\save. Is there a way to force this to go to a network share? We typically have a "home" directory on the server for our private files, H:\, and I would rather have the character files saved on a drive that is both redundant and backed up regularly. I found a registry key that looked like it would define this, but changing it to a network path did not seem to do the trick. In fact, when I opened the game, it reverted back to the original value...so there is something more that needs to be adjusted. 2) Which of the mods/add-ons would work best in our environment for creating a stash on a network share we can all get to? TQ/IM has the TQVault, which works really nicely for this. I have seen various mentions of ATMA, PlugY, and GoMule, but I can't find any screenshots that show me what they look like, or information as to whether they can be set up on a network share. 3) Last, and most trivial: How do I get LoD to load without having to flip the expansion CD from machine to machine every time? Thanks for the help.
