Tortoise SVN

The recommended approach to installing Etal uses Tortoise SVN source control software. Before downloading Etal itself, you must first install SVN. Click this link to visit Tortoise SVN's download page. Follow their installation instructions to complete this step.

Note: Make sure you download the correct version. If you're on a 64-bit version of Windows, you need the 64-bit version. Same goes for 32-bit. If you aren't sure, right click "My Computer" and look at the properties. It should say under "system type."

You could also visit the SVN Guide wiki page or watch this video.
* For previous OS than Vista, like as Xp, use Tortoise SVN 1.8.​

Version Hack

While the version hack (d2nt_fix method) isn't an official Etal method, it has been useful to enable the full bot, using the previous 1.13d version of the game for botting on 1.14 battle.net.​

D2NT_fix method explained

  • D2NT_fix was released for D2NT bot and it's working only with 1.13d version of Diablo II;
  • D2NT_fix will activate the loader "D2NT Manager.exe" with window title "ETAL Manager 3.165";
  • "D2NT_fix.exe" it's a hack application that's why it's catalogued as a virus from most of antivirus programs – see analysis on www.virustotal.com;
  • in D2Etal folder, the file "Game.exe", just near "D2NT_FIX.exe" need to be the same with battlenet version (now 1.14d);
  • rollback from battlenet updated 1.14 Diablo II consists in re-adding most of missed *.dll files from version 1.13d + "Game.exe" 1.13c (534.5 kb) + "Bnclient.dll" 1.13c (128 kB) and repatch all files with "LODPatch_113d.exe";
  • in original 1.13d version of the game, the replacement of "Bnclient.dll" 1.13d (136 kB) with fix one (60.5 kB) is needed, a version hacked which will not allow upgrading to 1.14 when connect to battlenet, but will display this version on first game screen.

  • it also contain the old public release "BE", which have also the D2NT_FIX files;
