1) Create a Temp folder on your hardrive.
Name this folder: Diablo2_DVD. This will be the name (Label) of our DVD.

2) Download the Diablo Custom Installer from HERE and extract the contents of the RAR file to the Diablo2_DVD folder overwriting any files if prompted.
(Custom Installer created by Mondragon.)

3) Copy all the contents from CD1 [Installdisc] to the Diablo2_DVD folder.
Rename INSTALL.EXE to INSTALL_DIABLO2.EXE

4) From CD2 [playdisc] copy all the files to the same Diablo2_DVD folder [do not replace any files, replace folders if needed]

5) From CD3 [cinematics] copy all files to the same Diablo2_DVD folder [do not replace any files, replace folders if needed]

6) From the Expansion disc [Lord of Destruction] copy INSTALL.EXE and SETUP.MPQ to a “second” Temp folder. (This second Temp folder is only needed whilst editing a couple of files.)
Open the INSTALL.EXE of the Expansion (which is now in the “second” Temp folder) in any Hex Editor and search for the string “SETUP.MPQ” and change it to “SETUX.MPQ”
Save it and Close the Hex Editor.
Rename the INSTALL.EXE (which is now in the “second” Temp folder) to INSTALL_LOD.EXE and Move the renamed file to the Diablo2_DVD folder
Rename the newly Hexed SETUP.MPQ to SETUX.MPQ and Move the renamed file to the Diablo2_DVD folder

7) Copy from Lord of Destruction all other files and folders to Diablo2_DVD folder.
Not replace any files [except BINKW32.DLL, do NOT copy the Install.exe]
Replace all folders

8) Open the AUTORUN.INF file for Diablo2 and Edit it so it looks like the following:

[autorun]
OPEN=INSTALL_DIABLO2.EXE
ICON=DIABLOII.ICO

NOTE: If you want you could change the icon to the icon of the expansion.

9) Downloaded in the Diablo Menu RAR file is a folder named: nodvd
Place any NoCD cracks into the “nodvd” folder.
Also copy the update patches to the same “nodvd” folder.
NOTE: The Update patches MUST be named exactly like the following 2 names:

D2Patch_111b.exe
LODPatch_111b.exe

NOTE:
You can use the latest v1.12 Update patches with the Menu but you MUST rename the patches to the v1.11b names used above!

10) Downloaded in the Diablo Menu RAR file are 2 files named:

serial_d2.txt
serial_lod.txt

Copy your Diablo 2 serial to the serial_d2.txt file and Save it.
Copy your Lord of Destruction serial to the serial_lod.txt file and Save it.
11) Burn the contents of the Diablo2_DVD folder to a DVD with the Label: Diablo2_DVD
