[Silver] Back to Hellfire - v1.0.2 - Onyx

Post by fearedbliss »

Code: Select all

Name: Back to Hellfire
Author: Onyx
Version: v1.0.2
Porter: fearedbliss
Maintainer: -

Includes
-------------
- 1.10 Cactus Platform
- Back to Hellfire v1.0.0
- Back to Hellfire v1.0.2

Installation
-------------
- Extract the platform into your Platforms Directory.
- Add an entry to Cactus that points to a non-existing exe. Use BTH.exe for simplicity.

Known Issues
-------------
- Cannot be launched directly from Cactus since it has a hardcoded launcher that lives in BTH\BTH.exe.
  Resolution: The game needs to allow launching directly from the Diablo II root directory.
  Workaround: Launch the game with BTH\BTH.exe manually after letting Cactus attempt to launch that Platform.
  
- The game uses a hardcoded save path that lives in BTH\save. This means that Cactus cannot manage the saves,
  and is not protected from Cactus safety protections. When you switch platforms, the BTH\ directory will be
  completely removed and you will loose your saves. Back them up before switching.
  Resolution: The game needs to leave the Save Path alone and let Cactus manage it.
  Workaround: Manually backup and restore the BTH\save folder before/after switching platforms.
