This method allows you to:

  • Edit Diablo 2 charsave files (modify a flag like died or ladder, change name, delete/add items, etc)
  • Edit Diablo 2 single items pulled from charsave
  • Edit D2DBS charinfo files

Diablo 2 Character Editor is an example of usage.

[POST] /d2char?type={fileType}

Send a file and return json object which can be edited and send back to [PUT] method to get modified file.

fileType allowed values are [charinfo, charsave, charitem] depending on appropriated file format which you upload.

For example, if you want parse charsave file then upload in onto URL https://api.pvpgn.pro/d2char?type=charsave

Returned object also depends on the uploaded file type:

PHP Example

define('MULTIPART_BOUNDARY', '--------------------------' . microtime(true));

$url = "https://api.pvpgn.pro/d2char";
$filename = "aerobus.d2s";

$file_contents = file_get_contents($filename);    

$context = stream_context_create(array(
    'http' => array(
          'method' => 'POST',
          'header' => 'Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=' . MULTIPART_BOUNDARY,
          'content' => "--" . MULTIPART_BOUNDARY . "\r\n" . 
            "Content-Disposition: form-data; name=\"file\"; filename=\"" . basename($filename) . "\"\r\n" .
            "Content-Type: application/octet-stream\r\n\r\n" .
            $file_contents ."\r\n--" . MULTIPART_BOUNDARY . "--\r\n",

// execute request
$response = file_get_contents($url, false, $context);
// print json result

[PUT] /d2char

Send returned json object from the [POST] method and return bytes of the generated file.

PHP Example

// continue of the above example where $response is returned json string


// convert string to json object to get only "data" field
$json = json_decode($response);
$charsave = $json->data;

// edit some data, for example character name
$charsave->name = "hello world";

// convert json object to string
$json_data = json_encode($charsave);

$context = stream_context_create([
    'http' => [
        'method' => 'PUT',
        'header' => "Content-type: application/json\r\n" .
                    "Accept: application/json\r\n" .
                    "Connection: close\r\n" .
                    "Content-length: " . strlen($json_data) . "\r\n",
        'protocol_version' => 1.1,
        'content' => $json_data
    'ssl' => [
        'verify_peer' => false,
        'verify_peer_name' => false

// send request
$file_contents_new = file_get_contents($url, false, $context);
// save response bytes into a file
file_put_contents("newchar.d2s", $file_contents_new);
