EQUINE or Easy & Quick Install Environment is a mod manager for Diablo 1. Think D2SE but for Diablo 1 and ability to download mods directly from the program.
You can backup saves from the original game, download & install DDraw wrapper, IPXWrapper and downgrade to a previous patch version. You can also force update the game to 1.09 or 1.09b.

Current version: 0.8.1b (Codename: Pegasus)

Main Features:
Mod downloader - download mods directly from the program
Add-A-Mod - a feature that allows you to add a mod that isn't in the list. Can be used for previous mod versions, etc.
Copy DIABDAT.MPQ from Diablo CD - allows you to copy DIABDAT.MPQ from your Diablo CD.
Jarulf's Guide - online and offline versions for the best Diablo guide.
IPXWrapper - install IPXWrapper to play over Hamachi or ZeroTier
Mod Updater - automatically (can be turned off) update mods when a new version is out
Mod Force Updater - if for some reason you're experiencing issues, use this function to re-download the mod.
Auto updates - the program will auto-update itself when a new version is out.

4. Play :D

I was a bit quiet around here, but I'm back with some EQUINE 1.0 updates :D
EQUINE 1.0 will feature MPQ editor that will allow you to edit Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 MPQ files (think of it as a modern replacement of WinMPQ).

1.0 will also fix the uninstall bug that haunts EQUINE with each release. Here are some screenshots (WIP):

Updated download window (WIP)

DIABDAT.MPQ extractor

EQUINE MPQEdit (WIP)

Release date: this december (I hope :D) Stay tuned for more updates :D
