How To Play:

  • Copy diabdat.mpq from your CD, or GoG install folder, to the DevilutionX game directory ; Make sure it is all lowercase.
  • Download DevilutionX, or build from source
  • Install SDL2 (including SDL2_mixer and SDL2_ttf) make sure to get the appropriate 32bit or 64bit version.
  • Run ./devilutionx

Please keep in mind that this is still being worked on and is missing parts of UI and some minor bugs, see milestone 1 for a full list of known issues.

Building from Source

32-bit building on 64-bit platforms

Linux

Installing dependencies on Debian and Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install cmake g++-multilib libsdl2-dev:i386 libsdl2-mixer-dev:i386 libsdl2-ttf-dev:i386 libsodium-dev libsodium-dev:i386

Installing dependencies on Fedora

sudo dnf install cmake glibc-devel.i686 SDL2-devel.i686 SDL2_ttf-devel.i686 SDL2_mixer-devel.i686 libsodium-devel.i686 libasan.i686

Compiling

mkdir build
cd build
linux32 cmake -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=../CMake/32bit.cmake ..
linux32 make -j$(nproc)
macOS

Installing dependencies

Install Xcode 9.4.1 and Xcode Command Line tools, this is the last version with 32 bits support.

Note: Be sure that your to select the command line Xcode if you have more then one installed:

$ sudo xcode-select --switch /Applications/Xcode.app

Verify that you don't have FreeType and HarfBuzz installed from Homebrew, which will cause build errors for SDL2_ttf:

brew info freetype
brew info harfbuzz

If you do have those installed, you'll have to temporarily uninstall them:

brew uninstall --ignore-dependencies freetype
brew uninstall --ignore-dependencies harfbuzz

You can install FreeType and HarfBuzz from Homebrew again after devilutionX builds successfully.

Now you can run the build script:

./macos-build.sh --build-all-x86
Windows via MinGW

Installing dependencies on Debian and Ubuntu

Download and place the 32bit MinGW Development Libraries of SDL2, SDL2_mixer, SDL2_ttf and Libsodium in /user/i686-w64-mingw32.

sudo apt-get install cmake gcc-mingw-w64-i686 g++-mingw-w64-i686

Compiling

mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DASAN=OFF -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=../CMake/mingwcc.cmake ..
make -j$(nproc)
Windows via Visual Studio

Installing dependencies

Make sure to install the C++ CMake tools for Windows component for Visual Studio.

Download and place the 32bit MSVC Development Libraries of SDL2, SDL2_mixer, SDL2_ttf and Libsodium in %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps\.

Go to File -> Open -> CMake, select CMakeLists from the project root.

Compiling

Select Build devilution.exe from the Build menu.

Building for the native platform

Note: Since 64-bit builds are currently not in a playable state, it is advised to build in a 32-bit environment. Another possibility is a 32-bit build on a 64-bit system (see above).

Linux

Installing dependencies on Debian and Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install cmake g++ libsdl2-dev libsdl2-mixer-dev libsdl2-ttf-dev libsodium-dev

Compiling

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make -j$(nproc)
macOS

Make sure you have Homebrew installed, then run:

brew bundle
mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make -j$(sysctl -n hw.physicalcpu)

CMake arguments

General

The default build type is Debug. This can be changed with -DBINARY_RELEASE=ON. Independently of this, the debug mode of the Diablo engine is always enabled by default. It can be disabled with -DDEBUG=OFF. Finally, in debug builds the address sanitizer is enabled by default. This can be disabled with -DASAN=OFF.

mingw32

Use -DCROSS_PREFIX=/path/to/prefix if the i686-w64-mingw32 directory is not in /usr.

Multiplayer

  • TCP/IP only requires the host to expose port 6112
  • UPD/IP requires that all players expose port 6112

All games are encrypted and password protected.

Modding

Below are a few examples of some simple improvements made to the game. It is planned in the future to create tools for designing dungeons and graphics.

Screenshot 1: Monster lifebar+items

Screenshot 2: New trade screen

F.A.Q.

Click to reveal

Wow, does this mean I can download and play Diablo for free now?

No, you'll need access to the data from the original game. If you don't have an original CD then you can buy Diablo from GoG.com.

Cool, so I fired your mod up, but there's no 1080p or new features?

We're working on it.

After looking at the code some of it is a disaster

That is the result of decompiled code. Whenever a program is compiled, much of the source is optimized and stripped away, so it's nearly impossible to decompile it back. Have patience. Everything will be cleaned up eventually. :)

What about Hellfire?

Hellfire was a bit of a flop on the developer's part. Support may come in the future once the base game is finished.
