Thread: 2 PCs Diablo interface question

Thanks again for replying Indrek. I think I'll stick to one pc setup just for diablo streams as it seems to be the easiest way to do it. Besides the two pc setup was intended for streaming newer gen games that I can't run while obs is running and don't require extra programs for data reading and display hehe.

Nevertheless, I will check out that plugin and experiment with it, of course.

Thanks again y'all, you are great.

Me again, diablo.run worked fine. Is there a similar way to do the same thing with livesplit? Thank you.

I've also noticed that DI starts reading character data when pressing Esc, Idk why?

ok never mind I managed to make it work. I dont know why but game.exe didn't finished after closing the game so DI was "reading" data from the wrong process I guess. ok I'll try diablo.run now hehe

Hi, sorry to bother again. I was trying to set diablo interface and diablo.run but when I saw that diablo.run profile didnt showed anything I realized that Diablo Interface is not working for me anymore? =/

I run DI as admin, Open Diablo II as admin and load a character but DI doesn't show any info, like if Diablo wasn't running at all. No error, no nothing.

I've downloaded version 0.6.8 to see if that was the problem but nothing.

I've recently updated my PC from windows 7 to windows 10 on a new SSD. Neither diablo II nor DI are on that SSD though but also never where installed on the previous w7 partition.

I generally play plugy 1.13c (DI was working fine not long ago with it) but I also tried with vanilla 1.14d and same thing. no data reading.

I also use glide wrapper but always did and never had a problem until now. I guess this info is irrelevant but I dont know. what am I missing? should I reinstall diablo II or something like that?

let me know if you need any more info about my pc or whatever.

thank you, happy new year 🙂

Hi y'all, I wanted to know if there is a way to do the following. I recently updated my streaming setup, which now consist of two PCs: one dedicated entirely for games, and the other is dedicated to obs streaming, which captures the first PC image through a video capturer. What I want to do is run DI on the streaming PC and make it read the .exe data running on the gaming PC, therefore I can manage DI and Diablo II separately on OBS. I think this is not possible but if anyone knows the answer to this for sure please tell me. Thanks have a good day 🙂

You guys are funny hahah.

Hey Daz, yes I am already checking out some streamers and videos. Im already learning the direction awareness of the maps and some concepts on how a map might be depending on some block elements. This I have learned from MrllamaSC's speedrunning tutorial series I've just finished watching. My next step would be start implementing this concepts in new games and practice. Also I will check out these different discords, haven't done that yet.

Please feel free to recommend any other run I should check out. For the moment I've only watched Mrllama's SGDQ and AGDQ runs and Indrek's 58m14s sorc any % normal.

Thanks again y'all, I will post some runs as soon as I can 🙂

Hi Macro, thanks for the warm welcome 🙂 this seems to be a fun community to be in.

Thanks for your answer. Please don't think I come up with this just to ruin any fun to it or whatever. It was just a doubt that came up. For the record, an easy way to know the game is a pirated copy is noticing some missing sprite files in some monsters animations ingane, for example Diablo itself and Willowisps from act III. In the early years this would inmediately crash the game, but as time went by some fixes appeared, resulting in for example Diablo not showing his back while running upwards or willowisps randomly "desappearing" and reappearing because a specific sprite wont show up. Many people may already know this but if not, this might be useful information for future submitions.

Anyway thanks again for everything. If any other doubt comes arround I'll surely count on you guys. Have a nice run!

Hey y'all. As said above Im new here. In fact Im new at speedrunning at all, D2 will be my first game to ever try speedrunning.

I have a question that might trigger some people haha, but anyway:

What would happen if for example I submit a run that is completely legal regarding rules of the category, but made on a pirated copy of the game? Would that be a reason for a rejected run? The game would still be D2lod vanilla no mods no nothing, just a pirated copy.

I know I can buy the game, Im not looking for answers such as "just buy the game" or things alike. Im just curious on how the comunity would take this kind of things.

Anyway back to myself, I didn't even tried to run yet but Im in the course of studying the basics of speedrunning the game so I can start practicing as soon as possible. Looking forward to it!

Thanks for your answers. Sorry for the bad english (if any). Cheers.
