Dungeon Siege & Legends of Aranna

Zhixalom’s Dungeon Siege Manager v1.9

Hey you Dungeon Siege enthusiast out there, here is something for you.

Getting cross-eyed trying to manage you maps, resources, mods and packages (siege-lets) ?

This program makes it a whole lot easier.

You get a list of configurations to choose and edit, instead of just one. You can even copy a configuration to the clipboard and paste it into an e-mail, then your buddy can copy/paste it back into his manager and you will both have the exact same configuration. Check it out… it has tons of other features.

 

Updates:

  • changed the “Force resolution” feature. Now you can either type in a custom resolution or select a more modern one.
  • fixed a bug in “Paste from Clipboard” rutine.
  • fixed a bug in the Dungeon Siege path rutines.
  • added a “Search For Dungeon Siege” rutine.
  • added support for “Legends of Aranna”.
  • added an option under “Setup” to bypass the “Are you sure?”
  • message when launching Dungeon Siege.
  • added support for dsdll files.
  • added DSLOA configuration tap as requested.
  • fixed a small bug in v1.6.
  • added support for DS Tool Kit (DSTK).
  • added a “default game files missing” warning.
  • rewritten the Setup tap rutines.
  • added the video synchronization option.
  • added pulldown menus.

Zhixalom’s DSLOA Addon Package

A while ago I collected all the mods I have ever downloaded for Dungeon Siege and made a package with everything:

Now with the latest version of my Maps & Ressource Manager

I made a simple how-to-guide on how to get Dungeon Siege to run on Windows 7, Windows 8.x and Windows 10:

DSLOA-Package3

With the DS Console Toolkit  and the basic editing tools:DSLOA-Package4

NOTICE:  This is an addon package, which means you will need to have  Dungeon Siege – Legends of Aranna  already installed and I seriously doubt it works with the Steam version.

The package is just about 1 GB.download

Finally, here is a video on how to make Dungeon Siege run on Windows 10:

Dungeon Siege on Windows 10

Getting Dungeon Siege: Legends of Aranna to run on Windows 10

To my surprise there are still people out there who think that you need WindowsXP to play Dungeon Siege these days.

This is simply not true. Over the past years I have installed it on Windows 7, 8.x, and Windows 10… and all of them were 64 Bit versions.

You don’t even have to tweak the compatibility settings. All you need is to install DirectX 9.0c (from June 2010) and choose the correct settings with DSVideoConfig.exe

Zhixalom’s Inventory v3.2

I have made 8 inventory mods for 640×480, 800×600 and 1024×768 screen modes. 3 for the original Dungeon Siege and 5 for Legends of Aranna.

zhixalomsinventory32

  • the gold limit is set to 2100000000.
  • expanded character inventory.
  • expanded donkey inventory.
  • expanded pack animal inventory.
  • expanded backpack.
  • expanded store.
  • expanded multiplayer trade.
  • and of course they are totally independent.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
The multi-player mode is not designed for large inventories. There is a limit to the amount of items a multi-player character-file can hold. This means if you use an inventory mod that gives you more that 255 items, you will loose the exceeding items when Dungeon Siege saves your characters. This does not happen in single-player mode, because in single-player mode the whole game is saved and not just the characters.

Zhixalom’s Custom Inventory Creator

Create you own custom sized inventory!

I didn’t write the third version of my inventories manually. Instead I wrote two programs to do the work for me. The programs were at first only intended to be a help to me, but I have decided to make them available for download.

zhixalomscics

Enjoy… but just keep in mind… the interface of these program are only made with my kind of logic and there isn’t nor will there be any manual available.
