Finally! 1.80 released! )))

After another all long years the Battle for Elements 1.80 has been released! This is a new base version so you will have to start over from the scratch as your previous characters (more likely) will not be compatible with the new version due to basic changes.

CAUTION! This is a new base version so you will have to start over from the scratch as your previous characters (more likely) will not be compatible with the new version due to basic changes.

Global changes:

Launcher changes:

  • When player disable gamble filter gamble window is filled with all permitted items now (made by lordvampir)
  • Too many check marks fix — the game could crash when too many check marks were set in gamble filter (made by lordvampir)
  • Now you can add some D2Mod plugins to the mod if you want. Just run the launcher for the first time and add plugins to new «plugins.ini» file. REMEMBER that you are acting at your own risk, as I cannot guarantee support for any plugin that is not included in the BFE (made by lordvampir)
