Didn't get any error. I didn't have to enter anything either. I just pressed pay for this order and it just went to order successful page. Maybe it only happens if your last purchase was paypal. My last purchase from GoG was via CC option and I don't save any data with GoG on payment info either.

The mod didn't make the best impression for me when I started it up, smashed over some level 4 demon by hitting him with my attack for 3 minutes (not kidding) and getting a blue gun and scrap from it.... also too dark is an understatement. ^^
Yeah I can see that happening with the initial weapons and the drop rates of anything better is super low. I had to buy some blue gear from the blacksmith in order to really get going since the drops were all just regular stuff that feels really weak. The balance is definitely against the player in the beginning compared to D2LOD. With the Amazon melee felt much weaker than ranged. I don't usually play pure melee characters so once I noticed that I was just keeping away as much as possible so it felt pretty much the same as what I played in D2LOD.

I own Grim Dawn (and like it a lot) but I don't own the expansions. They cost $35, which is quite a bit...
Yeah I bought the expansions separately during sales last year so I paid around $28 for both. I still haven't even gotten to either as I have never finished the main GD game but now I feel glad I got them ;). I was replaying D2LOD but the upscaling of 800x600 to my 1600p display was terrible looking so I might just try going farther with this mod.

Still I'd just grab the mod for now (especially if you liked D2) even if I couldn't play it at the moment due to what I mentioned earlier. It's not a perfect D2LOD clone mod, but it really does kind of feel like a D2 remaster. I played till I got past Andariel before I stopped last night. And overall the only thing strange was it was a bit too dark especially in the caves. They did a good job on the skill trees and tried to fit them to GD's system so some skills I noticed that in D2 had multiple prerequisites had only 1, but they were all present (for Amazon class anyway). Bow skills don't require arrows to be picked up for ammo. There is no durability in the weapons, so thrown weapons like Javelins are infinite. The health system works as GD's, so you recover health after fights.

Apparently you can play a modern version of Diablo 2 using Grim Dawn and this mod.

I've been doing this hard for the past week.
How is it?
It's actually quite impressive. I just played Diablo 2 LOD a couple of weeks ago and it plays like it and really reminds me of the original. They ripped out the voice overs, some graphics, the quests and story line right out of the old D2LOD game and used it.

I am not actually sure how this mod is okay with Blizzard. Maybe blizzard don't know about it yet. I could see if they didn't include the assets like the voices, quests and the graphics like the character graphics to choose your class, or maybe made a program that ripped the assets out of your Diablo2LOD files on a user's HDD, but with those included in the mod I'd expect this to get a DMCA take down letter sooner or later. So grab it while you can.

Unfortunately, this won't be a remaster so much as a from scratch rewrite. From what I understand all the source code and original assets were lost permanently. So the game is going to definitely be different than the original and to me that would probably make it something I'll pass on. I am sure Blizzard will do something stupid like with D3 and D4 and tie it to be always online or some other kind of BS. For me, I would rather they never attempt it at all then make it like that.

Got it and yet it won't let you play the game unless you give Epic permission to:

Share your display name, language preferences and linked account display names with this application.
Press deny and the game quits.

The privacy policy says it stores the data in China, and am not liking lots of it. For example For Device ID, Device Information, IP Address information:

For PC, this data is stored for the life of the Game, and then deleted within 7 days of a request to delete your profile.
For your unique identifier like steam ID or in this case epic account ID:

Stored for the lifetime of your use of the Game (i.e. until profile deletion in accordance with your request) and then deleted within 7 days of a request to delete your profile.
So I uninstalled it.

The game did look interesting though, but not enough to let me want to share any data of any kind with China.

I not thrilled about it because I don't want or need all those features. But overall I am more upset that they killed the GoG Downloader than anything. That to me was the perfect client for GoG. No friends lists, no games lists, no chats, no forums, no store, no linking to other storefronts. You just go to the website click the link and it downloads all the pieces of the game and installer to a directory on your HDD. Nothing else in it, so nice and clean. Yeah that's also available in Galaxy as a "backup" installer download, but look at all that extra crap that is in there. Sigh

Make my password into a 4-5 digit PIN? FUCK NO!

Everything they stated in the article about how much more secure a PIN would be since it is tied to a device applies (even more so) when using a good mixed case alphanumeric w/ punctuation password. So in essence they are downgrading security by making entry to a lost device easier.

The rule IMHO is basically, making security more convenient for the user is equal to reducing the security.

I didn't even realize FX3 came out and was "free to play". It is nice that it imported all my FX2 tables that I bought and they were all available to me immediately. I think the only thing I got in this care pack are the Aliens vs. Pinball tables, but it's a nice freebie.

The devs better read those terms carefully. The "Developers earn a fair share for their work -- once costs are recouped, developers earn at least 50% of all profits." was something that can be dicey. It was stuff like that that got many actors to change their residuals from "Profit" to "Gross" simply because of "Hollywood accounting" practices. I take JMS the creator of Babylon 5 as an example, he went and made a show for WB that grossed them over a billion dollars an he kept his show under $1m per episode, for 5 seasons @ 22 episodes per season and he never once got a cut of the profits because according to WB, the show has still not made any profit based on their accounting.

Always wanted to give this a try. Finally got it and I can't run it. It looks like it's one of those games that can't handle high core/thread counts. Setting affinity doesn't work, looks like if you can do more than 17 threads it just crashes immediately on start according to old steam forum posts. To run it you'd have to boot windows to a limited mode using msconfig. So uninstalled.

That makes 2 games I know of that can't handle high core counts (this and Technomancer). It always surprises me when a game made after 2010 can't handle high core counts while games made in the 1990's handle it fine like Baldur's Gate, Fallout, etc...

I setup my Index today and was messing around in The Lab to test things out: I legit jumped when a Jack in the Box I was cranking popped out of the box. Getting used to fending off Headcrabs in VR is gonna be... non-trivial.

Just a word of warning, if you have anything breakable nearby be absolutely sure you move them or protect them somehow. I have slammed my old TV screen with the controller while swinging a virtual sword around. Luckily nothing broke, but know it is quite easy to lose track of your location in the virtual space.

Actually this also goes back to the supreme court ruling regarding cloud based DVR service cablevision was sued over. They basically ruled that the difference between the cablevision service vs the one that got sued out of existence, was that the cablevision one was legal because every time a user told it to record, it recorded a separate copy of the show for each user. The other service was considered illegal because it recorded all the OTA shows and when a user requested a show be recorded it put a link to the show that was recorded in order to save on HDD space.

That ruling will also apply here. Nvidia will be considered violating copyright law because they have a single copy of a game installed being shared by a bunch of users playing the same copy. To really get around this particular technicality, Nvidia would have to make a cloud drive for every user then make the user install the game in their own cloud space for each game. Then run that copy of the binaries that the user installed to their own cloud space.

The article seems to only focus on laptops so the title should be:
Windows 10 is falling apart on laptops

I haven't had any issues on my HEDT with Win10 but then again unlike some laptops, I am not beholden to the laptop manufacturer to build/tweak drivers for my machine to work properly. After looking over the article I'd say his issues probably have more to do with DELL than Win 10.

Nah most likely it's because Activition/Blizzard will be making their own "streaming" service themselves.

Everyone keeps hyping streaming as the next netflix and no one will want some third party to take their percentage of the profits that ends up building a giant competitor to themselves. Just like all the TV networks out there now are building their own streaming services, the games area will fracture into a hundred smaller "streaming" sites to try and maximize their bottom line and get that coveted monthly access fee from users.

Dam well that's a kick in the nuts. I love beat saber, but I know I won't be buying any of their new games. I refuse to buy any Oculus store only games. Unless Oculus officially support revive, any games on their store might as well not exist in my eyes. It's really a shame there are like 2 games there I am pretty sure I'd like but as far as I am concerned they haven't been released yet. Thumbsdown

"We are not going to support an offline mode," Del Priore said. "But as I said before, nothing in Diablo 4 is going to require partying up. You can play solo and dungeons are private. Campaign quest areas will remain private."

In other words..."We are getting people use to the idea that being online to play is normal, so when we pull the rug out of them down the line, we can make our 'game streaming' option w/ a monthly subscription access fee along with an initial game 'subscription' cost the only way to play."

Thanks Blizzard, hard pass for me just like with Diablo 3.

I say the ruling if fine, but just remember, that there is NO stipulation that it has to be easy to use or not be riddled with extra processing fees. If I were valve or any other digital distributor, I'd just say, yes you have the ability to re-sell your games but the processing fee is 85% of the price you set that will be split between the devs and the digital platforms. You won't find a whole lot of takers when people see oh I am selling my old game for $10 and getting back $1.50 if it even sells. Since it's digital, steam can basically say they don't have to pay you till someone buys your particular copy that's put into a queue of other potential sellers. Add in all the other safe guards, like requiring a linked bank account to even be able to even enable reselling and you can basically make it so that almost no one uses the resale feature.
