  1. As noted on the release page, new skills are not yet made available for players in release TAINTED-2.2.
  2. Full-HD is unavailable at this time. Please understand that our community project is a collection of diverse teams and often solitary developers. High resolution options other than 1366x768 are being worked on by @Necrolis. We have no estimated date of arrival yet, since Nec has other duties that are of higher priority.

    Great work!

    Open source software and our project are tightly knit together, you know...
  4. The short answer is: yes.
  5. Hello @Albraxes That is the intended behaviour. As we noted on the release page: New skills are not available for player use in the TAINTED-2 series of releases. What you can currently see is just a static preview of the skill tree expansions that can't be interacted with in any way. The ability to use the new skills will be enabled in the upcoming release series, TAINTED-3, along with many other new features and bug fixes. Unfortunately, TAINTED-3 is still a ways off, and I can't accurately estimate when it will arrive.
  6. Update: The following community-requested features are now confirmed to be in development: Active 'charm zone' in main inventory Automatic gold pickup Hotkey shortcuts for inventory management
  7. Many of you guys asked me to set up a Discord server for D2EE, so I did just that.

    Thanks to everyone who showed up to the premiere!

    Celebrate D2EE's third anniversary by joining the official trailer premiere and stay tuned for more teasers about the project's progress!
  10. We are pleased to announce that the TAINTED-2.2 revision of the Enhanced Edition is now available. It is strongly recommended that all current TAINTED-2 series users upgrade to TAINTED-2.2. New in this release: Fixed: Issues and crashes related to the inventory and NPC trade panels should now be fixed [fix] Fixed: Gold should now drop less frequently from regular monsters [fix] Fixed: The Summoner's skillset was reverted to vanilla skills. This is a temporary fix to make it easier to progress through Act 2. [fix] Misc: Removed more unnecessary files from Patch_D2.mpq [optimization] Misc: The Enhanced Edition installers should now automatically detect your Diablo II installation folder and install files into the correct subdirectory without the need for manual path entry. Advanced users can, of course, install the files to any directory and manually carry them over to their desired location. [convenience]
  11. Urgent: It seems that inventory issues still persist in some installations. Another hotfix release will be uploaded soon that will, hopefully, eliminate those issues once and for all.
  12. We are pleased to announce that the TAINTED-2.1 revision of the Enhanced Edition is now available. It is strongly recommended that all current TAINTED-2 users upgrade to TAINTED-2.1. This is a hotfix release that introduces no new features compared to TAINTED-2. Fixed: Inventory issues and crashes when using Classic resolution mode (hopefully) Misc: Removed unnecessary files from Patch_D2.mpq D2SE: Glide should now work correctly
  13. Updated the installer to include glide3x.dll. Hopefully this will prevent Glide issues from happening on new installs. Meanwhile, some users are reportedly experiencing issues with the inventory panel, such as an inability to place items in the inventory and crashes when viewing the inventory. We're looking into these problems. We have now confirmed that there is a bug with the inventory, and we are working on a fix. Update: The inventory panel bugs will be fixed in revision TAINTED-2.2.
  14. Thank you for the report. Seltsamuel's D2SE Modmanager should install glide3x.dll automatically. If the file is present but Glide still does not work, it may be helpful to run D2VidTest, found under D2SE's Display Options, and restart the computer.
  15. Thank you for the report. I have a fix for your issue @NxHunter I determined that having the Enhanced Edition render correctly in windowed mode via Cactus is achieved by following these steps: set the "-w -3dfx" flags in Cactus, run glide-init.exe found in your game directory, navigate to settings under Mainmenu, tick the window-mode parameter and close glide-init.exe, proceed to Launch the Cactus platform. If you wish to play in full-screen mode again after that, you will have to untick the window-mode parameter in glide-init.exe, as those settings are written to your computer's registry and apply globally, not on a per-platform basis. Notes: the issue occurs because the Game.exe executable defaults to the unsophisticated DirectDraw video mode when launched with the "-w" flag. The additional "-3dfx" flag is necessary to enable the more advanced video modes, like Glide. However, Sven Labusch's Glide wrapper defaults to full-screen mode, therefore it is necessary to modify the above-mentioned setting parameter if windowed mode is desired.
  16. We are pleased to announce that the TAINTED-2 revision of the Enhanced Edition is now available. Please consult the release notes on the file page for information about features and issues.

    ReShade is a generic post-processing injector for games and video software developed by crosire. If you would like your Enhanced Edition to look similar to our screenshots and videos, we recommend installing ReShade and using our preset. For the preset to work correctly, ensure you select the following shaders during ReShade installation: AdaptiveSharpen.fx Bloom.fx Clarity.fx FilmicPass.fx LevelsPlus.fx Technicolor.fx UIMask.fx Vignette.fx In our preset, we also make use these two shaders freely available on GitHub: Comic.fx (gives the game's assets a slightly smoothed look and intensifies black borders) ArcaneBloom.fx (makes smart adaptive adjustments to brightness levels) Place their files in the respective subdirectories of your reshade-shaders folder. It is not recommended to install more shaders (unless you know what you are doing). Each additional shader will make the shader compilation process take longer as well as negatively impact the game's performance if enabled. Inside the Preset.zip available here, you will find our preset itself (Enhanced Edition Preset.ini), which you should place in your game directory, and a PNG file (UIMask.png) which goes to your reshade-shaders/Textures folder. The purpose of the UIMask.png file is to prevent some shaders from affecting a specific section of the screen. Please note that the UIMask.png file is designed to work with the Widescreen (16:9) resolution mode and is incompatible with the Classic (4:3) mode. If you've done everything as described, you should be able to enable the preset in-game and enjoy visuals equivalent to what you see in our screenshots and videos. However, be advised that the final effect may vary depending on your specific hardware setup, display settings and other factors. You may also want to adjust some of the preset's settings, such as the intensity of sharpening and bloom effects, to suit your personal preferences and specific setup.
