Blizzard is kinda right here
Guy basically cracked the game and made custom multiplayer for pirated copy that was able to play with non pirated classic Diablo 2, what did he or people expect?
It's too late the beta was cracked completely. This means that when D2:R releases it will be INSTANTLY cracked. Either by cracking the new .exe. or simply copying the missing textures from the official client to the beta one.
I think the title of this article is misleading. The C&D wasn't because they're mod authors, its because they modified game code among other things.
Blizzard is only in the wrong here if they decide to not hire that modder.
I remember working with Ferib on the LUE toolkit :P
cheatin in D2:R?They DID do a faithful remaster :D!Jokes aside hope doesnt become wide spread as ruins the fun.
If I was him I would post all of my code and how to breach everything to random sites. Give it to russians. Blizzard wouldnt be able to do @#$% about it and have to fix it.
Isn't a CAD essentially a request/threat? You don't have to agree to whatever they want, the important thing is not doing the thing they're mad about. Essentially what he says at the end, they can't stop him they can only stop this (which yes they should).
