Unlocking Hardcore

I know that to unlock hardcore you must beat Baal.

I uninstalled D2 a long time ago, after having beat Baal and played with a few HC characters.

A while ago, I reinstalled D2, only on a different machine. I did so with the intention to play some HC characters, having forgotten I would have to go through the whole game first before I could do so.

Is there a way I can unlock hardcore on this install without going through the whole game? Maybe somehow importing characters from my old install to my new one? (Assuming I've still got them on my old computer, which I think I do if uninstalling doesn't automatically delete saves.)

Or is there some other (nonhacking noncheating) way to do so?

Someone who has hardcore characters can go onto your account and create a hardcore character for you. As long as your account remains with one hardcore character you won't have to go through softcore. This is the easiest way that I know of, so find someone you trust to do it for you.

You don't actually need anyone you trust. Just get someone to make a HC char on a new acct with a random password -- then you log onto that new account with random password and bam, you can log on to your old account and magically be able to make HC chars.

Yes, there is a way. It should be detailed somewhere in the FAQ.
Its the last post on the first page of the FAQ by Mouse_Wiz.

But the other ideas are probably easier.

Thanks for the tips.

I had read the relevant part of the FAQ, but I hadn't read subsequent posts on that thread.

Now I've seen it, and I did the registry thing, and I'm set.

Thanks again.
