    The SP(T)F is based on trust so, before you go any further, please re-read the rules. If in doubt, contact the Moderators. This thread provides supporting information and links to support the rules, it also introduces you to our community.

    Single Player v. Battle.net Content For 1.10 and 1.11 By Cattleya (also applies to 1.14d)
    If you have just arrived from BNet, this will answer your questions on the Keys, Ubers, Runewords and DClone.


    Welcome to The SPF



    The Main Page
    Here is an overview of some of the key threads or thread types in the SPF.

    Introduction threads
    If you have just joined, or re-joined after an extended break, please (re)introduce yourself. Let us know what characters you like, how you came to the game and maybe a bit about yourself in RL (Real Life). As much or as little as you like. And then make sure you've got some shin protectors. Shin kicking is part of the SPF initiation ceremony. Remember though; we do not kick the shins of Elite Uniques.

    The Daily Thread
    Once upon a time there was a fresh Daily thread almost every day, but these days we are running a rolling Daily Thread. Post about what you are up to in D2, RL and OVG (Other Video Games).

    Etdlahq Memorial Bar
    Mosey on there, prop yourself against the Bar and grab a drink and a meal. The place for chit chat and drinks. Have two, they're on Durf's tab. Etdlahq is no longer with us, but his memory lives on here.

    The Item Find Thread
    This is where you can post all the readouts of your greatest finds and link to screenshots. New IFT's are made periodically usually when a really high end runeword or three are made or a very rare set/unique is found.

    OT: Days of our Lives (aka the Beacon's Billboard) - also known as the DoOL
    This is the place for more serious conversations. Here real life happenings and dilemmas are shared and comforting words offered.

    Mat, Pat and Guardian Threads
    Whether you have just finished the game with your first character or have completed you 49th Guardian, tell us about it! You can find loads of great examples here.


    The MP Sub Forum
    Single player doesn't mean 'alone'. We MP and PvP through LAN or TCP/IP and it is a fairly important part of the SP experience. We arrange games here in this forum. There are different threads for Hardcore and Softcore, Modded and Unmodded, as well as different versions or variants. Please be sure to post in the correct thread.
    Technical Problems Thread
    Post here and the membership will try and help you if you have hosting or connectivity issues.

    MP Guide - SPF By Thyiad
    Everything you wanted to know before making a merc of yourself in MP.

    MP Groups Guide by Ed from Russia
    If you are putting an MP team together, you really should read this.



    Single Player Trade Forum
    You may trade in the Single Player Trading Forum providing you follow the SPF Rules .
    SP trading has a very different slant than realm trading. Values differ widely, especially since the SPTF is fairly quiet these days. There is Stickied Price Check Thread in the SPTF where you may get an uptodate evaluation of your items. The SPTF is also the place to look for giveaways.
    Mods, Muling, Utilities, Variants Help Thread (SPTF)
    A question/answer thread for anything to do with any of the acceptable mods, muling programs or reporting tools which are supported on the SP(T)F.

    Code Blocks, Quotes and how they work! - by nubikoen
    Essential for long lists of items in trades.

    Guides for Time Travellers

    In the SPF you can play whichever version you want. Fancy playing against players64 monsters? you can do it in a previous version. Want a BKWB with +2 skills? You can in a previous version!

    How to play different versions
    You have a few options for playing older versions.
    Fresh install of the old patch. Works quite nicely if you use a Virtual Machine to run an old OS (Windows 2000 for example). This is probably the best option for Mac users.
    Trenshadow version switcher. The original SPF time travelling machine.
    Bliss Version Switcher. Works with 1.14 too.


    Why to play different versions
    Playing older patches can be a very different experience if you started playing D2 in 1.10 or later. Forget much of what you thought you knew and enjoy the experience. Of course finding items which are different to the later patches is part of it too.

    Time Travelling the SPF Way by Jaedhann
    An introduction to the differences between the LoD patches.

    Playing The Game, SPF Style

    The SPF plays a little differently. We like to mix it up, playing untwinked, to strange rules and given the ability to play different versions gives us a unique slant on D2.


    Tourneys
    SPF Tourneys are many and varied. Whether you are interesting in finding items or runes or taking a character to Guardian with ridiculous restrictions, we have a tournament for you.
    Tournament Listings by Pb_pal

    The SPF Guide to Hosting your own Tournament by Sint Nikolaas
    Don't start a tourney without it.

    SPF Table Formatting by ioupainmax
    If you are running a tournament, or keep on mangling tables in other peoples tournaments, you should read this.

    Magic Find Olympics
    The MFO is a long standing tradition in the MFO, where players run a specific target for elite unique items. Be prepared, you will need to cram in a serious amount of runs in just over a week to be in contention.
    You can find all the previous MFOs here.


    The Septumvirate (or Sept)
    The Sept is a collection of seven characters, one from each class, around a common theme. You make the rules yourself, it can be untwinked Hardcore or using a specific item or set of items in SC. Complete it by getting all seven to Guardian or Mat / Pat.


    The Quest for Level 99
    A quest only for the most determined players. That hasn’t stopped a select band of nutcases achieving it, some even multiple times. In Hardcore.

    The Grail
    The original Grail is a complete collection of all the Set and Unique items in the game. Since then we have a multitude - Ethereal, Runewords, Perfect Items - If you want to collect it, there is a thread to measure your progress against others.

    SPF Elite Runners Club
    You aren't going to get to 99 or complete the Grail in a weekend. It takes a serious amount of runs. Join like minded players here who consider 10k runs a decent start.

    SPF Hall of Records
    So you think you are quick at Pindle runs? Check your speed against the best in the SPF.

    Build Guides
    The SPF builds have ofter had a bit of a different flavour to those on BNet. Even in these post 1.13 days of high rune wealth, the dogma of BNet often is contradicted in the SPF.
    Beginner's Guide to Build Selection - by Mursilis
    If you're a complete beginner, start here. Great introduction to the classes and their more simple builds.

    V2 Single Player Character guides compiled by Hrus

    Build Efficiency 101 – Overview & Resource Compilation by ffs
    How to maximise your efficiency with examples of build and targets.

    The SPF Mat/Pat/Guardian Compilation v5 - compiled by Pb_pal
    A great place to look for slightly off the wall builds. It's a typical example of builds done by SPF'ers, many HC, untwinked and from tournaments

    The Fisheh Page - compiled by Thyiad
    A compilation of Guardians and other Guides by Nightfish. Always well written and very informative. Varying degrees of difficulty.

    The SPF Community

    What makes the SPF the place of choice for many of us is the Community spirit. There's some ribbing and some disagreements but, in the main, we are friends. Please respect and contribute to this spirit.


    The People
    It is the people that make the community. Although many of these people are no longer active, they built this community through their guides, Mat, Pat & Guardian threads, Tourneys and general good humour.

    The Squid
    The forum has had some crashes over the years. During the crashes, some posts and threads were forever lost. When the forum is slow, or bad things happen, the Squid is held responsible. There is a supply of repellent in the Bar. Rally there during an attack. @Spearthrower may even appear to do battle with his harpoon.

    EU's - Elite Uniques
    These are our ladies of the forum. Because of our unusual atmosphere, we have a larger proportion than many forums. Treat them with respect and courtesy. This was a term created by Waimea. We don't care if this is un-PC now. :p

    @DarkChaos - A legend among most players here. Three HC 99'ers and at least one self found HC grail.

    @DurfBarian aka Durf - A long time member who is blamed for everything and anything that goes wrong. His credit card funds the EMB so drink up!

    @Fabian - His Pit Zerker build revolutionised Magic Finding almost ten years after the game was released.

    @Gripphon aka Grip - The person who really refined the concept of efficiency when running a target. He is to blame when you are paranoid that you can't do a Pit run quicker than 12 nanoseconds.

    @Hakai_no_Tenshi - He wrote ATMA our first muling programs. Thank you for the sanity.

    @Nightfish - The Fisheh finished his HC Sept Sept (Seven Guardians of each class). Each new Guardian thread is a mini-guide full of entertaining observations of the class. Check out the three hour sorceress! A full run down of the Guardians and background here.

    @RTB - The authority on stats and gameplay information. His RWM allows us SP'ers to experience the Bnet runewords.

    @Randall - The author of Flavie, our reporting tool. Co-developed GoMule with Silospen.

    @silospen - A jolly good sport who has spent many hours coding GoMule based on the requests of SPF members. GoMule is the next generation of muling and silo deserves a lot of credit for that.

    @Waimea - Created the term Elite Uniques (EU's) for ladies of the SPF and is known as the 'Elite Uniques Champion'. Gained an Award from Stargaze for that. Also heralded the traditional greeting 'Welcome M'lady.'.

    All the previous moderators of this forum, who have kept the SPF running for so many years
    @Darkness, @greybeard, @AlterEgo, @Kremtok, @Cattleya, @Hrus, @sirpoopsalot


    Awards
    Some great moments and links to threads here that give a real feel for the SPF.

    Each of the resident PvPers represent one class of characters to see who is the best PvP class. Fascinating.

    You can't link the April Fools thread, man... It's always so good when someone actually tries...

    Otherwise, good job!

    You mentioned Darkchaos twice in the 'people' section.

    Great job nonetheless ;).

    I'm trying to download RWM (Mac), but link2 seems to be invalid. Link1 is a valid link but when I try to unzip from drive (seems to be my only option), it says the file doesn't exist. Any ideas? :p

    Hmmm, you should be able to download it. Link 2 are currently inactive, I’m going to mirror everything onto OneDrive when I get a moment.

    Have another go, if not PM me your e-mail address.

    @Rushster is aware of the original problem, should now be fixed. I have notified him of the further issues.

    I was thinking about that this should be added to the Links, under magic find/calculators. The so called "german drop calculator" (I could not find it in the links here)

    http://mfb.bplaced.net/dropcalc/#en

    It has the rune drops for 1.13b (Silospen uses 1.13a I think, so Silospen have about 4 times lower rate of high runes.)

    You can more easily sort by area, you can see the no drop chances (not accurate for Councils, The countess and other monsters that has more than 1 pick). Not sure if it implements that the 7 picks for bosses if one of the first 6 picks gives "no drop"... I can check at some point though.
