-----------------------------------

A collection of non-gameplay modifications and fixes in
order to improve the Vanilla Diablo II Single Player experience.

The following versions are supported:

**** Classic ****
- 1.00
- 1.05b

**** Expansion ****
- 1.07
- 1.08
- 1.09b
- 1.14d

**** Features ****
- [*] You can now run multiple clients of Diablo II.
- [*] You are now able to quickly join LAN games.
- [*] Fixed CPU usage bug in Game Menus, Single Player, and LAN games.
- [*] The Battle.net button has been disabled for safety reasons.
- [*] The introduction cinematics are now automatically skipped.
- [*] The ambiguity between the number "5" and "6" has been fixed.

- [1.00-1.09b] You no longer need the CD in order to play the game.
- [1.00-1.09b] You can now make Hardcore characters without beating Softcore.
- [1.00-1.09b] The window will no longer minimize when you click out of it.
- [1.00-1.09b] The window will now have minimize and close buttons.

- [1.08,1.09b] The game will now work with the MPQ files included in the
               new Blizzard Installer (Other versions automatically work).

- [1.08,1.14d] Battle.net-only Runewords are now enabled on Single Player.

**** Extras ****
- GlideWrapper

**** Notes ****
- The Game Menus CPU fix will only be applied for v1.10+. The fix for versions
  pre 1.10 was reverted since it caused lag for systems that weren't using the
  GlideWrapper. Most people don't spend a lot of time in the Game Menus anyways
  so it isn't a big deal to keep this in.

- If you are using Glide, make sure to disable VSYNC in your Glide settings
  or you will still experience high CPU usage in LAN games.

- Due to a Windows bug, the Minimize/Close buttons will not show if you are using Glide.

Patch 1.05b
------------
This patch was picked over 1.06 since 1.06 contains anti-duping code
that would delete items in earlier versions that were found legit but
that the game assigned identical fingerprints to.

Patch 1.09b
------------
This patch was picked over 1.09d because it contains 'players 64' and
also because CtC is working. 1.09d has broken CtC which means that you will
see the animation of your CtC effect, but it actually won't do anything.

Patch 1.10f+
------------
Nothing major has happened since 1.10f, and thus the latest version will be used.
