Should I just salvage everything not ancient at least out of season?

Nope, glad you have got in!  You are a worthy d2 player.

PCs / New Power Supply advice
« on: April 03, 2021, 04:49:15 AM »
Well I have a second hand PC which is ancient by modern standards, but what do you know, its better than my almost 11 year old desktop!    I went to power it up and saw and heard sparks, then smelt some smoke from the PSU.  it was a 420W thing which had served it well as its first purpose.  I need something to replace it for a while till I finally buy an actual new one for me. 

So whats a decent PSU for a desktop that will be doing games and not much else, might run 2 HDDs and not much else.  For arguments sake, here is a local place I could get stuff and they have an easter sale on now https://www.pbtech.co.nz/category/components/psu/shop-all?fs=16228746

Just so you know, over here we run 230V.  Ask any questions you need ..

Movies & TV / Re: What are you watching?
« on: March 06, 2021, 08:59:09 PM »

we also watched the first episode and a half of wandavision. even allowing for a slow build and obviously gimmick episodes to start, just painfully bad. not sure if/when we'll get back to this one.


We started Wandavision late and just finished it.  Yeah those first episodes are .. different.  A different decade, a different show influencing the style of that episode, but you've just had an extended entree of bread, and the main course is just around the corner.  I recommend you get back into it.  Much more stuff, more characters, more wanting to see the next episode etc.  And only 9 episodes in the whole run.

I know that there are exceptions, including within our own little community here, but I'm pretty sure the vast majority of D2 players are hetero males,

... or perhaps we're past that, and we can understand that gaming is for everyone, and that gaming audiences are far, far more diverse than they were 20 years ago?

Gaming in general yes. A 21 year old game, it will have changed but not as much.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfPRTJZHQw0&t=1019s very useful info here.

May be future other OS announcments later for MacOS, i'm guessing they want to gauge potential audience vs amount of work to do.

I enjoyed talk of bugs, that they would look over things and if things will disadvantage the player.  So if it something such as the andy quest bug will stay, but other existing bugs they didn't get around to they may look at fixing (not mentioned but I thought of the inferno bug).

You can play single player without internet connection which is great.  So for us who majority played offline single player then we can basically keep doing it, sounds like mod support, our muling programs etc but have better visuals/sound etc. 

lots of other info but hopefully someone might do a big dump of it all.

I think the upgrades and stuff will get a lot of us back, it will be interesting the longevity for everyone. How many get a new shiny and donít go back. How many get to an area of the game they were burnt out and remember why they stopped. Iím looking forward to it

If you mean pace it from 2021 to 2041 then yes.

In 2003 when I did most of my graining I was a uni student. Only worked at summer. No real responsibilities. Life is different now.

Blizzard would have put Mac .. Activision though ..
i wonder what the % is for gaming on mac these days? or with the whole M1 thing how much harder it is?

Also watching a longer video with Mr LlamaSC I hear that Single Player IS definitely there.

Any/many quality of life improvements?

"Shared Stash tab available to all characters on a single Battle.net account."

looks like a few other minor things but all else pales next to this one.

10x10 stash is an improvement, but when you are used to storing thousands of things in atma...

Auto gold pickup you can optionally turn on is good

Yeah, more details in the coming days, but it sounds like they have some good people making decisions who have been talking to the community.  Also no microtransactions!
