Cactus, Singling, and Video Renderers
The following are tools that will help you easily play any version of Diablo II, while also optionally having non-gameplay modifications. Please read the README files for these projects below. Singling is part of Cactus. The Cactus main page also contains information of how to download Cactus.
- Cactus - A Modern Diablo II Version Switcher & Character Isolator (Contains: Singling)
- Singling - A collection of non-gameplay modifications and fixes in order to improve the Vanilla Diablo II Single Player & LAN Experience.
- Video Renderers - Instructions for cnc-ddraw on Windows and Linux (Wine).
The Chaos Sanctuary
The Chaos Sanctuary - This is the last archived version of "The Chaos Sanctuary" before the Expansion came out. A little before LOD was released, The Chaos Sanctuary was closed down in favor of "Arreat Summit". Not every single link in this archived version works, but the majority of it still loads, including most (if not all) item types, images, and stats. Thus this link is useful for anyone playing 1.00 - 1.06b. A little more of the earlier posts posted on the News page can be found here.
You can find the full list of recipes for 1.07, 1.08, and 1.09b in the links below. These are directly extracted from the MPQs, and I renamed the extension from .txt to .csv so that it's easier to open with programs like LibreOffice Calc (Spreadsheet)
