    Hex Cheats:

  1. WARNING: Always make a backup of your savegame before edititng!

    To modify the amount of gold contained in your "Stash", do the following:
    1) Try to put at least 1000 gold in your stash. This cheat will work with smaller amounts, but you may be limited on how much you can add.
    2) Load your game. Record the amount of gold in your stash. Exit from game.
    3) Load a Hex Editor and convert your gold to HEX. Open the file savegame.d2s (savegame will be the name of your character) in your Diablo 2 save folder.
    4) Search for the HEX location (from converted amount of gold). Modify the HEX location to FFFF (or any amount in HEX that you wish - up to 65000). Save the file.
    5) Re-load your Diablo 2 savegame and you will have 65000 in your stash!

  2. Retrieving Items from Dead Corpse If you die and cannot make it back to retrieve the items from your dead body, simply save, exit, and return to the game. Your corpse will appear in town and you may retrieve your items easily.

Once you hit transmute they should disappear, but once you close your inventory window there is a red portal that will lead you to the Secret Cow Level. This ONLY works in the Rogue Encampment in Act I.
