  1. Fellow players, I'd like to present the result of the endeavor of the last 3 years - the CM Patch 1.60 + S2EE 2.4 Addendum Beta. The Addendum Beta contains game changes, fixes and extra graphics content. Gameplay stability in Multiplayer is not guaranteed. Playing wih legacy characters is highly inadvisable. The Addendum Beta is is not compatible with either D2F, or Enhanced Edition variations out of the box. It also requires the Elite Textures to be switched on(the Trimmed Elite Textures are highly recommended). The available localizations are English and Russian. Take note: Unlike the CM Patch 1.60, the Addendum has not been extensively tested by a dedicated team. Quirks and CTD's are technically possible. Please, report any such incidents. Game Mode changes: "Player vs. Player" mode is replaced with "Pandemonium" mode. "Pandemonium" mode description: With the all the disruptions and anomalies, caused by the Great Machine instability and overcharge, trans-dimensional rifts start to manifest. A massive invasion by a malevolent force, describing itself as "The Burning Hells" soon begins, followed by a self-proclaimed benevolent force, "The High Heavens". It's time to take out all this trash. Meet new enemies and a lot of new bosses. Those, who manage to kill all bosses and minibosees in one run receive singnificant attribute and skill point rewards. Gameplay Changes: 1. One of the primary calculation functions, used in attack vs. defense, spell intensity vs. spell resistance, damage vs. armor calculations has been fixed. 2. Occurrences, where, upon changing locations via doors, or secondary teleports, various objects and NPC states at the new location were not updated in a timely manner, should no longer manifest. 3. It is now possible to traverse dungeons levels and enter-exit dungeons without dismounting. Previous technical limit have been successfully alleviated. 4. Ingame price inflation is decreased by a factor of 10. Minimum item full price is 4 gold now. 5. Appropriate equipment and character bonus-granted modifiers now have a chance(35% for single target attacks, 15% for Area of Effect attacks, 0% for temporary and permanent buffs) to apply to spell-based attacks. 6. A certain rare day-night transition CTD is fixed. 7. One bonus type(BONUS_REDUCE_ENEMYS_SPELL_REFLECTION) has been restored. 8. Two bonus types(BONUS_ALLSTATS, BONUS_ALLSTATS_REL) have been introduced. 9. The functionality of bonus type BONUS_NOFLEE has been expanded. If applied as a debuff, it compels an opponent to attack in melee. 10. The BONUS_LIFELEECH_REL bonus type now properly causes percentage-based leeching from the creature's current health. 11. Damage mitigation is now capped at 85%. 12. 'Combat Art Skills +' modifier behaves correctly now, improving 'Ancient Magic'(now called 'Spellcraft Lore'), 'Combat Discipline' and 'Concentration' skill instead of 'Shield Lore' and 'Warding Energy Lore'. 13. The BONUS_HURL_ENEMY bonus type mechanics has been reworked. The damage is no longer indiscriminately applied to non-hostile NPCs and mounts. 14. Drop tables have been revised. Potion drop rate has been severely reduced. Missing set items should now drop. 15. PhysX object behavior in the game world has been optimized. 16. Both ambient and combat music selection have been significantly expanded. 17. Some projectiles used to demonstrate strange physics quirks(ricochet off some surfaces, "falling leaf" behavior). Should no longer happen. 18. CA tokens "et_debuff_EAW", "et_debuff_EVW", "et_debuff_armor_phy" from the same source CA no longer stack on affected targets, and are longer attached to affected targets as offensive properties(CA's affected are marked with '*' in the description below). 19. The merchant stock replenishment formula has been altered, the growing character level now makes it somewhat easier to encounter better items in shops. 20. Bonus BONUS_INVISIBLE now works like a reasonable random chance of remaining undetected. 21. Occurrences of playable characters becoming perma-paralyzed upon being knocked back is resolved by making "host"(on local server) player immune to knockback. 22. Ambient sound volume has been adjusted for several temporary buffs. 23. Root effects are now both bonus type driven and are actually chance-based. BONUS_CHANCE_ROOT and BONUS_CHANCE_BREAK_ROOT bonus types can now be used both as spell and item properties. 24. BONUS_UNSTUN_CHANCE bonus type has been introduced. Represents the chance-based ability to break stun effect on self. 25. Healing potion anti-spamming feature now actually works. 26. Energy shields now regenerate in combat, but, just like health, the in-combat regeneration rate is 0.02 of out-of-combat regeneration rate. 27. BONUS_DISMOUNT bonus has been removed, due to it's fundamental application flaws vs. NPCs. 28. BONUS_HRM_FIGHT bonus type has been introduced. Represents a percentage-based multiplier to in-combat heath regeneration rate. 29. BONUS_SRM_FIGHT bonus type has been introduced. Represents a percentage-based multiplier to in-combat energy shield regeneration rate. 30. Stun duration has been set to 6 seconds. 31. BONUS_BLIND_RAGE has been actualized in blueprint.txt. Represents the chance for a creature to become universally hostile for a time. 32. Mount maximum achievable level is set to 250(used to be 201 upon game reload). 33.

Various fixes to character animations have been introduced. Unused animations have been restored. 5. Character models have been reworked, fixing seams and improper weighting. 5.

Singleplayer characters can now longer start multiplayer campaigns. 10. Multiplayer characters can now longer start singleplayer campaigns. Skill Changes: 1. 'Bargaining' skill mechanics has been modified: the skill is now a viable investment at higher levels, due to increasing chance to encounter Sets, Uniques and Legendaries in shop inventory selection. 2.

The 'Blacksmith Arts' are now runic forge tokens carrying one(two at skill mastery level) random modifier. 3. Aspect lore skills now affect more combat art properties. 4. 'Fist Weapon Lore' has been restored as a Dragon Mage exclusive skill. It affects fist weapons and bare-handed combat, allows to dual-wield fist weapons. 5.
