Blizzard released a new patch for their acclaimed hack n slash action RPG, Diablo 2. Yeap, you read that right. Blizzard is still supporting this bad boy and this latest patch fixes numerous bugs, including the annoying duplication method and the one which allowed players to stack their auras in an unusual way, rather than Blizzard had intended. In addition, Mercenaries can now use multiple auras at the same time.
Moreover, the Patch 1.13d offers the ability to save your ignored players on a disk. This means that you can save the list of the ignored players between gaming sessions on Battle.net so that you you won’t have to ignore them all over again. The file is called ignorelist and you can “trigger” it by entering “/ignorepersist” in the commands console.
Last but not least, Patch 1.13d fixes a problem which caused some games to be prefixed with random color codes for some reason, players will no longer experience random disconnections from Battle.net when watching Diablo 2 cinematics, and the game will no longer crash if you are playing it in window mode with sound off and trying to watch cinematics.
