Topic: Hex editing the in-game greetings Diablo II LOD...
Ok, so I opened D2GS.exe with HxD and found the lines of text I wanted to change. I used the same number of characters to replace what I wanted replaced and saved the .exe. I reopened the edited D2GS.exe to check to see if my changes were still there and they were. I put the edited D2GS.exe in my server directory and voila! There were NO changes in-game. It was still the same ol' "No commercial purposes!!" that I wanted to change. Any help please?

I'm an infant to this whole hex editing thing. I tried a different editor and got the same result. My modified D2GS.exe produces no errors, but the in-game greeting (No commercial purpose etc...) remains unchanged after editing the string. For all I know I'm in a parallel universe and I look like a rambling idiot to some of you veterans. I'm so close to where I want to be with this server. I'm just looking for a little customization. I'm operating a tiny D2 LOD server for my kids and nephews on my home PC. Any help with this issue is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
