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.

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.

I was surprised by this event because glide3x.dll was already in the modmanager directory. 
Also I checked other modifications, there are more than 10 of them, in the MODS folder, they all start normally.

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.

Hello @Albraxes

That is the intended behaviour.

As we noted on the release page:

Quote

New skill additions (note that all original Diablo II Lord of Destruction skills and builds are intact) [in progress]
Notes: new skills are implemented but none of them are made available to player characters in this release

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.
