Hi All,

Truly sorry if this is a stupid question, or if it's already been asked
(have searched with no results) ... does anybody know if there is a
patch or hack which allows you to make the new runewords in SP or
TCP/IP games? Would such a thing even be possible (reveals huge
programming ignorance)? Has anyone heard of such a project?

It's been a year or so since I last tried Bnet (for D2 that is - I've
recently got back into StarCraft in a big way), and although the new
runewords look interesting I'm not sure they'd justify zillions of
hours of slogging through Europe realm looking for games with
english-speaking players and acceptable ping times ... whereas my
stable of offline chars might just about be able to make some of the
new words a few years earlier ...

Anyway, hope you're all well,

Then bypass Europe and make an account on USWest. Join PCM, and someone
will surely be around shortly to help you out.

this patch activates all runewords in SP. I am playing with it for quite
some time now (SP only) without problems.
I guess you can play TCP/IP games if all parties have the patch installed.
Items with the new runewords will go *poof* if you go on online battle-net
or uninstall the patch.

Oliver - thanks for this, I'll give it a try.

Mickey - many thanks for yet another offer of assistance on USWest - my
old accounts are all expired now, but I could create some new ones. My
main problems are that ping times are noticeably worse than East or
Europe (~400 vs ~250 or ~150 respectively), and more importantly that
hardly anyone is online when I am (around 10pm GMT = 2pm PST)! I will
pop in and say hello soon though, just for the hell of it. (If anyone
happens to be starting up a questing game with new chars one afternoon
I'd love to know!)

Add, as that is usually when I am MOST likely to be found. If I see you
there, I will make formal introductions to those that are a part of
PCM, but who do not post here, such as Taenarian and Sheila.
