What is a Diablo II Open Server?

A Diablo II Open Server means that your character is not stored on PvPGN like on the real Battle.net (TM). When you play on Battle.net (TM), your player is stored on their server. In Open Battle.net (TM) game play, your character is stored on your local computer instead. This only requires PvPGN to be running on the server side. It has several advantages & disadvantages.

Advantages:

  • Single player character can be used to play on Battle.net (TM)
  • Backups can be made of your character in case your character file gets hosed or lost

Disadvantages:

  • Players can easily cheat, like using trainers and hacks
  • Admin has very little to no control over player's characters

To play on an Open Battle.net (TM) Server:

  • Start Diablo II or Diablo II LOD
  • Select the Gateway of the machine you want to connect to
  • Click on the Other Multiplayer button
  • Click on the Open Battle.net (TM) button

What is a Diablo II Closed Server?

A Diablo II Closed Server means that your character is stored on the PvPGN server just like the real Battle.net (TM). This requires D2CS, D2DBS & D2GS to be running in addition to PvPGN on the server side. It has several advantages & disadvantages as well.

Advantages:

  • Hacks & trainers are much easier to detect
  • Players have a much harder time trying to cheat
  • The admin of the server has more control over player's characters

Disadvantages:

  • Single player characters cannot be used
  • Backups can't be made of the character by the player
  • Slow servers or bandwidth can cause lagging or additional wait time
  • Player is at the mercy of the admin, should the admin wish to delete the character
  • If you don't log in frequently, your account could be deleted, along with your character

To play on an Closed Battle.net (TM) Server:

  • Start Diablo II or Diablo II LOD
  • Select the Gateway of the machine you want to connect to
  • Click on the Battle.net (TM) button

You may run both an open & closed server at the same time. The player, in such a situation, would then choose which game play they would like to use (open or closed).

What is a Diablo II closed realm?

A Diablo II closed realm is the realm that you play in, on a Diablo II closed server.

Windows configuration for Diablo II Server

What you need to configure:

  • bnetd.conf
  • realm.conf
  • d2cs.conf
  • d2dbs.conf

192.168.1.2:16112   74.22.125.199:16112      192.168.1.0/24  ANY
NoteIcon
Note
Set the port to 16112 as the above example shows. You will configure the Gaming Computer to use that port.


If you have more than one Gaming Computer on the LAN, you will need to create a new entry for each computer with a unique port.

Next, you must search for the Diablo II Character Server translation (d2cs) section.
Look for the following line:

#192.168.1.10:6113   1.2.3.4:6113       192.168.1.0/24          ANY

Edit versioncheck.conf

Open the /etc/versioncheck.conf file in your preferred editor.
(I’ll use edit, a text based editor):

  • click Start --> Run --> cmd
  • Ok
C:\> cd C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf\
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf> edit versioncheck.conf

After opening the file in the editor, search for the -=- Latest Versions -=- No Update Required -=- section.
Look for the following entries:

# Diablo II - LoD (Expansion) 1.13c
 "A=3845581634 B=880823580 C=1363937103 4 A=A-S B=B-C C=C-A A=A-B" \

  D2XP_113C

# Diablo II 1.13c
"A=3845581634 B=880823580 C=1363937103 4 A=A-S B=B-C C=C-A A=A-B" \ IX86ver1.mpq \ IX86 \ D2DV \ "Game.exe 03/09/10 04:11:00 57344" \ 0x0000000d \ 1.0.13.0 \ 0xfc04b9f6 \ D2DV_113C

If those entries exist, then you have the current version checks for Diablo II. You can customize this to allow only certain version of Diablo II to connect to your server.
Do this by removing the version check entries for the version you don't want to connect to your server.

Download the latest versioncheck.conf if you don't have those entires.

You may need to change your system settings to show file extensions to ensure that versioncheck.conf is saved with the correct extension.


Edit autoupdate.conf (optional)

Open the /etc/autoupdate.conf file in your preferred editor.
(I’ll use edit, a text based editor):

  • click Start --> Run --> cmd
  • Ok
C:\> cd C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf\
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\conf> edit autoupdate.conf

After opening the file in the editor, search for the Diablo II Expansion (LoD) section.
Look for the following entries:

# ===================== Diablo II Expansion (LoD) ===========================
# Note: the following assumes that you want to upgrade all Diablo II clients
# to version 1.12a.  If you are still running a 1.10 or 1.09d realm, you
# will need to modify these entries accordingly.

#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_107        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_108        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_109        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_109B       D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_109C       D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_109D       D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_110        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_111        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_111B       D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq

# Incremental update from version 1.12a --> 1.13c
#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_112A       D2XP_IX86_112A_113C.mpq

# The next one is a Diablo II LoD wildcard entry.
#IX86    D2XP    D2XP_1xx        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq

Now you must uncomment the line by deleting the # from every line:

# ===================== Diablo II Expansion (LoD) ===========================
# Note: the following assumes that you want to upgrade all Diablo II clients
# to version 1.12a.  If you are still running a 1.10 or 1.09d realm, you
# will need to modify these entries accordingly.

IX86    D2XP    D2XP_107        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
IX86    D2XP    D2XP_108        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
IX86    D2XP    D2XP_109        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
IX86    D2XP    D2XP_109B       D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
IX86    D2XP    D2XP_109C       D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
IX86    D2XP    D2XP_109D       D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
IX86    D2XP    D2XP_110        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
IX86    D2XP    D2XP_111        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq
IX86    D2XP    D2XP_111B       D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq

# Incremental update from version 1.12a --> 1.13c
IX86    D2XP    D2XP_112A       D2XP_IX86_112A_113C.mpq

# The next one is a Diablo II LoD wildcard entry.
IX86    D2XP    D2XP_1xx        D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq

Next do the same with the Diablo II (DV) section.

After the autoupdate.conf has been configured, you will need to download the update files.
The bnftp utility is what we'll use to download the update files:

  • click Start --> Run --> cmd
  • Ok
C:\> cd C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=D2XP --arch=IX86 --file=D2XP_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=D2XP --arch=IX86 --file=D2XP_IX86_112A_113C.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=D2DV --arch=IX86 --file=D2DV_IX86_1xx_113C.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112
C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\> bnftp --client=D2DV --arch=IX86 --file=D2DV_IX86_112A_113C.mpq uswest.battle.net 6112

When the update files have finished downloading, you must copy them into the C:\Program Files\pvpgn-1.8.5\files\ folder.

Configure Router / Firewall

You will need to forward ports 6112-6114 and 4000 to your pvpgn server, and forward port 16112 to your Gaming Computer.
Also ensure these ports are allowed through any firewall(s) on the applicable computer(s).

Configure Game Data Port (optional)

To play these games on the same LAN as the pvpgn server, you will need to change the port that these games use, since PvPGN is already the default port (6112). Change the Game Port to the unique port you specified in the address_translation.conf.

  • click Start --> Run --> regedit
  • Ok

After opening the Registry Editor, browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Battle.net.

  • click on Configuration
  • right-click on the right half of the window and create a new DWORD value
  • name the new DWORD value Game Data Port
  • right-click on Game Data Port value and select Modify
  • enter 16112 and select Decimal
