Today is the first time I came across this tool mentioned in the subject (darkd3.com). I'm not interested in using the shader features and turning the game darker - stupid nonsense, if you ask me (no offense, but D2 act 2 was brighter than anything else).
What I am interested in, is the font change. I did some Google searching and I'm aware of Jay Wilsons' tweet. Was the font change already implemented in this version that Jay is talking about? The re-coloring is just altering some graphics drivers' settings, which is not against the TOS. However, when I went to the website and wanted to download the tool, there was this notice:
So, it is clearly altering GAME FILES (namely, the MPQ files) which is absolutely 100% against the TOS. I'm even surprised that Warden didn't pick this up and lots of people got banned, as MPQ files are being watched all the time (at least that's what I thought Warden is doing).
I was wondering, is Jay's tweet just about the brightness change and the font change was added in later? Are all these people using the font change tool risking a ban at the moment? I'd really like to get rid of the stupid Arial font for items drops, but I also don't want to risk a ban.
