I know that first hand as well. My old HC Blizz guardian (now deeds) went to do the moat trick. For some reason the council started targetting me after I lured meph, so I run around dodging them. Next minute, Meph casts blizzard on me. Instant death.It's not fool proof though.
As long as you do not exit from the program (ie. Diablo), both the /players and the /nopickup commands stay active. It is even said that if you type (or Enter-Up Arrow-Enter) the /players comment enough times in a game (without Save&Exit'ing), it'll be remembered in following games allowing you quick access to the text in case you want to change it (like during Baal runs). All this holds as long as you do not click the "Exit Diablo II" in the game menu.but i'm not sure if it will affect other characters or not.
That's true. I've seen it once. I must've been playing with the settings a fair bit, but it remembered only 1 player setting, not all that were used.Llathias said:It is even said that if you type (or Enter-Up Arrow-Enter) the /players comment enough times in a game (without Save&Exit'ing), it'll be remembered in following games allowing you quick access to the text
Through the whole guide I switch between using "/Players" number and "player bonus" which is the same as "No Drop Exponent" and is 1 for /players1 and /players2, 2 for /players3 and /players4. I know that it might be confusing and I have a note in my local copy of MF guide that I should rework that and use unified number or at least differntiate better between those two. That's if there will be a new version of the MF Guide.I just thought I would post the actual numbers so you can see the drop differences. I pulled these out of Hrus's MF guide, and corrected them for the unpartied players the player command adds. (Hrus's numbers in the guide appear to use partied players.)
Thanks for these! I didn't know the difference, but seeing them, it's really not that great. And even with those figures, it's not guarenteed[spelling?] (I know, averages.)Cattleya said:Average number of drops for Meph:
/p1 & /p2: 5.31
/p3 & /p4: 5.97
/p5 and up: 6
1.11b here, and it does save over from the previous, unless you exit completely. Maybe you're just not noticing it?Aerwynd said:What version are we referencing? 1.11b???
Because each time I Save & Exit, I have to type it in again
I'm v1.11 BTW...
I know it's happened to me once, but I haven't been able to replicate it. It might be the most often used setting, or somethings completely different, but a quick test then got me nothing. :SAerwynd said:Maybe it's because I don't think about it, but when I press the Up Arrow nothing shows up.
