Blizzard has released a new patch for owners of Diablo II, bringing the game to version 1.0.6. There are a number of fixes and improvements in this update, so be sure to grab it or log on to their Battle.net service and auto-download it. Here is a description of what has changed, along with a quick Q&A about a new method of scanning players for "duped" items:
ImprovementsHead to MacGameFiles now to download the new update, if you're a solo player.
Blizzard Web Site
Updated Battle.net's Terms of Service agreement. It can now be
without having to create a new account.
Further optimized client to server communication.
Fixed copy-protection for various CD, DVD and CD-R drives.
The Diablo II Realms now scan characters for duplicate items. If
a player is found to have more than one of the same item, the
duplicate items will be deleted leaving just one of that item.
Q: Why have some of my items of a certain type vanished?
A: Character files were scanned for duplicated items. All
dduplicate items but one were deleted.
Q: What items were selected for deletion?
A: All rare and unique items were scanned for duplicates.
Q: Why did Blizzard Entertainment only delete some of the dupes,
and not every dupe?
A: Blizzard Entertainment wants to maintain an enjoyable and
balanced play experience for every user. To that end, we removed
all but one duplicate item. We're making an effort to protect
those players that legitimately traded for those items.
Q: Are all methods of duping stopped?
A: All known methods of duping have been fixed. We will continue
to monitor the Diablo II realms for duplication exploits and fix
them as needed.
Q: Where can I report hacks or exploits?
A: You can send your reports to firstname.lastname@example.org.
