Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Various Diablo II multiplayer/character questions
SteevLWhat can I do for you?Registered Userregular
My fiancee and I live about 300 miles away from each other. I visit her roughly once every 2 weeks, and this weekend will be one of those times. I'm bringing up my old PC so we can do some multiplayer PC gaming. One game we'd both like to play is Diablo II. We both have the full game and expansion, so that's all taken care of. What I'd like to know is:
1. If I create an offline character on my PC at her place, will it be possible for me to transfer it to my PC at my place somehow? I took a quick look at the Diablo II directory and saw the "Save" folder. Would it work for me to simply copy that character information and take it with me from one PC to the other?
2. I could probably avoid having to do any of that by playing on closed battle.net, so the characters are stored on Blizzard's servers. However, aren't there issues with trying to play the game over battle.net with two or more players behind the same router? And if so, is there anything I can do about it?
We're both pretty big Diablo II newbs (I know, I know...), and we'd like to play through the game for once instead of making it to Act II and quitting like we've done over the last 3 years.
