Wolfy777: It seems that the HD mod by belzebub adds those things (minus running in town) ..
Belzebub support "running in town", bzw. I just realized that while playing. =)
Press "G" (or press "game settings" icon from the right bottom of the screen) and set "town walk increase" about 60%, etc.

I noticed that, but thanks for pointing it out anyway. :)
Belzabub is nice mod but playing unfinished and abandoned mod feels awkward.

Also - level locked progress is biggest problem with this mod, forcing you to grind levels until mobs give no XPs.
Currently rocking Barb on lvl30 on Nightmare difficulty, can't fight Butcher because he stunlock me permamently, even with Very Fast weapon and skill that boost attack speed I can't hit him.

I got similar thing happening on Normal with bosses and named minibosses, had to gring level or two more, went back with same gear and without spending skillpoints, killed stuff with no problem. Huh.

The Hell mod does not do that (also played Barb).
Barb in The Hell mod also starts with 0 Magic and can't spend skillpoints on it but still could get mana from other sources to cast spells (like Heal or enrage).

There are crossbows in both mods but they are more fitted for warrior and barbarian so you don't need to chase running enemies.
Repair All includes items in the inventory, not just the equiped ones. No need for that.

Splatsch: Thank you very much you two :)

I'll first play it Vanilla, then will try The Hell, then will try Belzebub !

Edit : You don't need Hellfire to play The Hell ?

SpecShadow: no, Hellfire is not needed
you just need to unpack mod, put DIABDAT.MPQ in it and you're ready to go.
But how to get this DIABDAT.MPQ? because game wont run without it

You buy the game, install it, and the file is then present within the game folder.
I think The Hell is the best way to play the game. It doesn't mess with the vanilla theme like Belzebub does, but adds a ton of new content to the game, including the Hellfire expansion, more classes, and hundreds of new monsters and items. The optional music is really good too, and really fits the dark theme. It also ups the difficulty, which I think is an improvement. Fighting through each room requires more strategy now, rather reminds me of Dark Souls more. It's especially fun in multiplayer, you just need Hamachi installed.

Belzebub mod is most likely the best way to enjoy Diablo. Not only it's far superior technically to what GOG team coocked up (great stability, all modern screen ratios with multiple zoom levels, lots of quality of life improvements) but also fixes numerous bugs and exploits that were never addressed by Blizzard (a lot of spells in D1 simply doesn't work, etc.). Even more, it improves balance, reintroduces content cut from the original game (multiple quests that audio for was left in game files) and adds some Diablo 2 style mechanics (like set items, new character classes or belts with multiple rows of potions). All that without compromising the unique feel and style of Diablo 1.

Hell mod has some interesting things in it as well, but is way more loose in terms of staying true to the original D1 (introducing stuff from Hellfire all over the place) and is mostly aimed for masochists.

I am not agree whith you
Belzebub is maybe a good mod but it compromise the unique feel and style of diablo 1 because there are lots of gameplay changes that modify diablo 1 feeling.
Can someone tell me how to install the belzebub mod? I have the original diablo 1 but I do not know how to install the mod, I appreciate the help of everyone who can help.

You need just copy DIABDAT.MPQ to it.
Download Belzebub _https://mod.diablo.noktis.pl/download
Then, unpack archive with files to any folder ("Belzebub", for example) and copy DIABDAT.MPQ to it (from installed GOG Diablo1).
Also, you can just extract all files from Belzebub to installed Diablo. That's it.
