I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. I've tried Etal via svn and I've tried replacing the D2NT.dll file in D2NT 3.1 along with changing the compatibility to win xp and running it as admin...
The issue I'm having is that it says unhandled exception c00000005 or something like that and closes before it even gets to the login screen.
yeah having this problem also
So, I have 5 copies of D2 installed on my laptop. One where it is default (C>Program Files>Diablo II) and 4 copies in "Documents" named D2#1, D2#2, D2#3, and D2#4. Each with a different cd-key. I got Etal to work with my #2 copy of D2 in my documents folder but not with any other copy of D2. I had serby's cd-key checker in each folder and the only cd-key it wouldn't check anymore was #2, the one that worked with Etal so I deleted the cd-key checker from each folder to see if that was the problem and still the same results... I then put the cd-key checker back in each folder to trouble shoot and see if the reason was that it only worked with 16 or 26 bit keys but that's not the case.
I don't know why the bots will not work with my other 4 copys or yours for that matter but I did however get it to work with one of mine and the only thing I can figure is that it might have something to do with serbys cd-key changer/checker?
ISO more help on resolving this issue please.
P.S. I haven't found "crash fix.exe" to do anything, I'm running win7 64, and I downloaded D2 from blizzard's site-I didn't install it via cds.
