Diablo II 1.12a (New Patch)
- Patch 1.12

     Downloadable Installer Support

- If all required Diablo 2 '.MPQ' files are installed on the
  hard drive, the game will no longer require the CD to play.

   For users that originally performed a 'Full Installation'
   and wish to run without the CD, all '.MPQ' files should
   be copied from the Diablo 2 CDs to the Diablo 2 directory. 
   Most users will only need to copy D2Music.mpq from the
   Diablo 2 Play CD and/or D2xMusic.mpq from the Lord of
   Destruction CD.  Mac users will need to copy these music
   files and rename them to 'Diablo II Music' and
   'Diablo II Expansion Music' respectively.

   Anyone who did not perform a 'Full Installation' will need
   to re-install from CD again to ultimately play without the CD. 
   In this case, a 'Full Installation' is required, followed by file
   copy step noted above.

     Bug Fixes

- Fixed an incompatibility between Rosetta and OpenGL mode on Intel Mac.

Verbyte: 0x0C (12)

Server Move Completed

Server move has been completed. And to save Hdx the effort of having to re-edit the packets/documents, I took the liberty of making another copy from the older server and moved it here.

So it's all up to date. :-)

Thanks for your patience during the transfer!

Server Move

In light of the frequent downtimes we've been experiencing lately, I've procured a new server and will be moving all domains/customers to that new server.

What this means for BNETDocs is some downtime. This is due to DNS propagation, which will take up to 24 hours, depending on your ISP.

This also includes the BNLS redirection server. I apologize for any inconvenience, but believe me, this is the best course as I believe in reliability. If there are any issues and you're unable to report it to me via BNETDocs, feel free to contact me by sending me a PM at Make sure the PM is sent to DonCullen.

Once more, thanks for your patience. :)

Still working on the new version of BNETDocs. :)

Vivendi Games / Activision Merger

Vivendi Games and Activision have merged into a single company called Activision Blizzard. While the name has Blizzard in it, make no mistake, Vivendi Games is the parent company of Blizzard, and while the name has 'Blizzard' in it, it is Vivendi Games that has merged.

Blizzard posted on their forums to the effect of saying that there will be no changes to their games, their staff, their offices, nor their development teams. Blizzard Entertainment will continue to function as a division -- the only difference being that their parent is no longer named Vivendi Games, but now Activision Blizzard.

So to those wondering: no, there will be no changes to as a result of this merger. will operate as usual.

Yes, I already have sent a direct request for comment to Blizzard in regards to how will be affected, but most likely their response will be similar to their post on their forums. If there is any different information than that posted on Blizzard's forums, I'll make sure to let you know.

If you'd like more information on this, feel free to email Blizzard at [email protected].
