so i was reading http://www.diablo-evolution.ne…../index.php (btw, they updated it recently 😀 ) and found out the battle net beta. it seems nobody tried to crack it yet to get single player mode working, so i gave it a go

https://picload.org/image/prddwdg/1.jpg

# beta
http://www.diablo-evolution.ne…..lobeta.iso
# single player patch
http://www.mediafire.com/downl…..ckedv3.zip
# snp with ipx, cable, single-player and modem connections
http://www.mediafire.com/downl….._SNPv4.zip

single player has been patched to use the auto-save system, just like in multi player (standard save & load functions are missing in the beta :S). the only difference is that Restart In Town button in single player resets dungeon progress (again, more missing functions to load and save data), meaning that levels get reset like if you had never been in there

for this reason another change had to be done: characters wont drop items nor gold to the ground when dying in single player (otherwise they would permanently disappear after hitting Restart In Town, due to the reset)

# no-cd fix :
– copy diabdata.mpq (from diablobeta.iso) into your diablo beta installation folder (eg. C:\Diablo\)
– hex edit diablo.exe:

0x0002D156 01 -> 00
0x0002D15D DC 58 4C 00 -> 00 00 00 00

# color fix:
– save the following code as a .reg file and run it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DirectDraw\Compatibility\diablo.exe 0x32288532]
“Name”=”diablo.exe”
“ID”=hex:32,28,85,32
“Flags”=hex:00,08,00,00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\DirectDraw\Compatibility\diablo.exe 0x32288532]
“Name”=”diablo.exe”
“ID”=hex:32,28,85,32
“Flags”=hex:00,08,00,00

make sure you always run the game as admin otherwise the .reg fixes may not work

The following users say thank you to blankname for this useful post:

What exactly is the problem with playing on multiplayer though? It can’t connect to Battle.net is my guess? I’m looking into getting Diablo: Hellfire to connect to server: http://khanduras.net/forums/ge…..attle-net/
Maybe I could research Diablo Beta too

the battle.net server for the beta is offline and it required an special code which was given to the beta testers

there is an extra check that needs to be patched in storm.dll (or maybe not, not 100% sure) . apart from that, the beta is now 100% cracked, however, its missing standard.snp… that file is required even for single player Cry

This is fantastic, awesome work. I can’t thank you enough for making this.
Suddenly the beta seems to be getting a lot of attention, that’s great. Maybe with yours and xboi209s efforts we’ll have a fully playable beta some day.

Now I only need to find time to update the website again and explore the beta some more 😉

i will continue patching the SNP sunday or so and once its done, it should provide fully working ipx, cable and modem connections. the snp was taken from diablo 1.00 which uses a newer format than the beta, and therefore requires some patching to make it compatible

unsure if the save game bug and the crash when accessing a new level are related to the snp. i will try to figure it out

bad news

i had some free time today and finished single player mode patching in the snp (first post updated), but that didnt fix the save game issue. the problem must be somewhere else

good news this time 🙂

ipx and cable connections 100% patched in the snp (only modem is left) and auto-save in MP works perfectly. the direct cable connection is a bit buggy tho. just type anything in the Name field and press enter. you can also choose difficulty if u manage to left the 3 buttons at the left side of the screen

modem patched. the snp is now fully patched

the only thing now left to patch is save game in sp

first post updated

edit: i have removed the first no-cd option from the first post. its a bad idea to mess with reg files. il leave it in this post, just in case anyone is interested

# no-cd fix (old one, shouldnt be used) :
– hex edit diablo.exe: 0x0002D156 01 -> 00
– copy diabdata.mpq (from diablobeta.iso) into your diablo beta installation folder (eg. C:\Diablo\)
– save the following code as a .reg file (change ”C:\\Diablo\\” first, if needed) and run it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Blizzard Entertainment\Archives]
“DiabloCD”=”C:\\Diablo\\”

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Blizzard Entertainment\Archives]
“DiabloCD”=”C:\\Diablo\\”

This keeps getting better and better. Great work!

I’ve made the new files available as a complete package on the Diablo Evolution website and will update everything when a new version comes out.

the beta is missing the main save and load functions sadly :/ so i have patched it to use auto-save in single player

i think im done with this

EDIT:

dungeon progress is saved with a function and loaded with other function when pressing Restart In Town. the beta was missing these 2 functions but had the MP version of these functions, so i tried using them for SP in my Diablo_Beta_Unlockedv2. sadly i found that these functions doesnt work very well in sp (doors becoming walls, etc) so i i have stopped using them.

i have updated my patch and now when pressing Restart In Town in single player, the dungeon progress will be reset (there isnt any good solution for this sadly). but dont worry, i have also patched another function and when player dies in single player, his items and half his gold are not dropped to the ground anymore
