Given enough time, and enough focused ingenuity, any copy protection method can probably be circumvented. For the latest evidence of this truism, look no further than the Sega Saturn. A hacker has developed an external, plug-in solution that lets the two-decade-old system play games off a generic USB drive, without the need for heavy internal hardware modifications like a soldered, hard-to-find mod chip or a full disc drive replacement.
Having an easy way to play backed up Saturn games is important, because many of the original systems are seeing their flimsy disc drives die of old age these days, even while the rest of the system's solid state parts remain relatively robust. Since the Saturn discs themselves aren't encrypted, game discs can be easily archived to an external hard drive via a regular PC, and run on the now fully solid-state Saturn indefinitely.
Dr. Abrasive also hopes his solution will supercharge the Saturn homebrewing community, which was previously limited to the few hackers willing to open up their systems to install mods. More coders will now have the opportunity to play around with the Saturn's complex and over-engineered innards, creating new demos and chiptunes with the hardware.
Just a note since I reinstalled it in this quarantine period :D After you install diablo 2 con windows pc, to play on battle.net you need to install the latest patch. This process is automatically handled by game, but you need to run as administrator to install this patch. So, install D2, then run it the first time as admin and connect to battle.net install latest patch
In theory it should work. But as far as I can see Plugy does not support the latest Diablo 2 patch. On the official page the latest release is compatible with Diablo 2 version 1.13, but the latest Diabloe 2 patch is 1.14. So one way to make it work would be to install Diablo 2 in Wine as usual, but only install updates (probably manually) up to 1.13. Then install Plugy in the same wine environment. I did not try but I assume it should work. Also keep in mind that you might not be able to play online either (so only solo mode or LAN).
Not sure why, I had major issues with Battle.net - single player worked great. Did some hunting around (2+ hours) and this seemed to fix it: sudo apt-get install winehq-staging If you are having similar issues (everything works but crashes when you click battle.net) might be worth a try.
List of the most common filename extensions used when a game's ROM image or storage medium is copied from an original read-only memory (ROM) device to an external memory such as hard disk for back up purposes or for making the game playable with an emulator. In the case of cartridge-based software, if the platform specific extension is not used then filename extensions ".rom" or ".bin" are usually used to clarify that the file contains a copy of a content of a ROM. ROM, disk or tape images usually do not consist of one file or ROM, rather an entire file or ROM structure contained within one file on the backup medium.

A CT file is a cheat table file created with Cheat Engine software that is used to create modifications to Windows based games for cheating. The Cheat Engine, an open-source cheating engine, examines the executing games and makes a record of its address locations. This information and its overrides are written in the CT file that is then loaded by game players to change game properties such as health score, highest score, and remaining lives. 2b1af7f3a8
