Can anybody confirm the "Create character" button in SP/MP is greyed out, so
you cannot create any new characters unless you remove all files from the
save directory which dumps you directly into the creation screen when you
start a SP/MP game?

No, this works fine for me. Just downloaded it (6:30am CEST), so perhaps
they changed it between your download and mine. It still says 1.11, though.

Confirmed.

From a quick glance, the vendor screens seem the same, so still no elite items
on sale in act 1 hell, for example. I haven't done much more than have a
quick wander around act 1 hell, since I've been busy reading the forums, hehe.

Okay, I took a level 77 single player amazon back to act 1 normal, and all the
mercenaries that Kashya had listed for sale had a minimum level 72 (which,
thankfully, is what I speculated the change might be in another group), so no
more level cap based on act/difficulty.

I'm uncertain if the amount of experience that mercenaries need to level up
has changed. Someone with 1.10 still installed would need to check.

Level 77 Holy Freeze mercenary from act 2 nightmare - listed as needing
57,676,320 experiencem, in 1.11. Is that less than 1.10?

Nope, no such problem.

Huh? I patched, created a sorc named "test", and off she went.

My version is working as well now, too. Spooky. I've been on battle.net a
few times today, but don't recall seeing a second patch download, so it looks
like the thing just fixed itself automagically...

.... or maybe Gunde and I should stop stealing from Bing's stash.

As soon as Hannes and I were able to access our characters in closed bnet
the button in SP became normal again.
