Bug Runeword not working

Ok so probably something I've done I know but maybe someone with a bit of knowledge can help me out.

4os long sword plain
Tal Thul Ort amn

That should make spirit.
I have rwm enabled as my Merc is holding insight and I'm wearing rhyme and have lore as well.

Any ideas what could've gone wrong? I'll try and post screenie when I'm back on laptop

did you start up the game from the Diablo II link, or the Game Shortcut link?

if the former, you aren't going to be running RWM

previously made RWM items should still work in non-RWM games

The 'A' in a genuine Amn should always be uppercase.

You probably got that from a shady mob hawking counterfeit goods. Cut your losses.

Kidding aside, sounds like a problem with launching the game from a different spot, or maybe the Runes.txt got moved on accident?

Ok thanks for that. Will check that but would the insight/rhyme still work in that scenario?

Will also ensure I only use reputable Amn dealers from now on;)

Rhyme should always work as it's not a Ladder RW. I can't think of a possibility for Insight to work and Spirit to not work aside from fiddling with the txt file.

Thanks for feedback.

The diablo II.exe and it's shortcut with relevant commands appears to have disappeared and I've inadvertently been using an older shorter to game.exe with the correct - commands.

I have uninstalled the game and am in process of reinstalling to see if I can correct it

I have saved my d2s files on my one drive just in case of corruption.

Besides, I think I made the experience that when making e.g. Spirit without the RWM, it will turn from a gemmed sword (or shield) into Spirit if you change to RWM later. I'm not sure what happens if you turn away from the RWM later, but I think it would persist.

I've had to 'make' runewords to test that my RWM is working a few times during installs etc, and you still have the runeword once RWM is functioning, so at least you won't lose your runes. On that basis, you might as well go ahead and make an Infinity anyway :p
