DevilutionX 1.2: Diable code reimplementation is out

DevilutionX

DevilutionX is the name of an implementation of the classic video game Diablo, as well as being in the public domain. Now, you have version 1.2 available that you can find on their website. GitHubAlthough, of course, you will need a copy of the original title that you can buy at GOG for this project to be of use to you.

Once again, the developer community is doing an incredible job, keeping up with the maintaining a classic game that it is still very much alive, and that it has many fans also among gamers who use Linux platforms. With DevilutionX we also offer Linux support and a huge number of improvements.

This package is found in some repos and app stores for easy installation. For example in Ubuntu Software

If you already knew DevilutionX before and you wonder about the news that this new version brings, I have to tell you that DevilutionX 1.2 is loaded with improvements on the table:

  • Hellfire support.
  • Shareware support.
  • Game saves between Diablo and Hellfire can be fully migrated.
  • The gold collected will now accumulate also when the inventory is open.
  • Pepin heals automatically.
  • Other players are shown on the map.
  • Maintain list position when buying and selling items in stores.
  • Keep hotkeys and active spell in all games
  • Set default active spell for new heroes
  • Experience bar (disabled by default)
  • Monster Health Bar (disabled by default)
  • Automatically equip all item types upon pickup or purchase (disabled by default)

  • Disable friendly fire from arrows and spells (disabled by default)
  • Turn off mission randomization (off by default)

But this list is only for game-related features. There really is a lot more in this version 1.2 for Diablo. For example, it includes widescreen menus, improvements so that subtitles move at the correct speed, improvements in the sound of videos, an AppImage for Linux users to install easily, optimization of memory use, improvements of the performance, higher limit on save games, and more.
