Topic: Chang to the Patch_D2.mpq take no effect under PVPGN1.8.5/D2GS1.13
Recently I setup a private server with PVPGN 1.8.5 and D2GS1.13, games.exe version 1.13c.
I use MPQMaster edit the Patch_D2 to edit and compile below files.
And I've tested the change on single local game, without -direct -txt switch, that's all OK.
then I put the modified Patch_D2.mpq, restart the PVPGN & D2GS, then connect with an unmodified 1.13b client, the change to armor.bin and TC.bin tack effect. And unfortunately, the change to Weapons.bin does not take effect, until I put the modified patch_d2.mpq to the client.
Can anyone help how to analyze how the PVPGN/D2GS read the bin files or if anything I am missing? Why only some of the bin files are not loaded to the client?
Thank you all in advance.
