one question: I understand this seems to make the game always start in window-mode - but how can I get it to do it only when I want?
(like in D2, you alter the short-cut, so you create 2 short-cuts - one for window, and a normal one)
I'd like to start in window-mode on certain occasions, and the rest of the time in full screen mode..
simplest way is to have 2 copies of diablo 3 for you then one with normal mode and one with windowed mode so make an coppy of you diablo 3 folder then
anyway i would change beteween the settings when iever i feelt like it in settings inside game if i where you !
Thanks dude, but 2 installed copies of a 7GB+ game just for a setting? that's nuts!
Plus, going into the game to do it is what I wanted to avoid - like in D2..
Anyway, I just checked and it seems a non Blizzard site has the info!
The same thing works in d3 as in d2:
So I simply use: "Diablo III.exe" -w -launch
Note that the game remembers the last mode, even when ran from a shortcut/command line, so you will need to launch from 2 shortcuts if you want to alternate between windowed mode (or just change the setting in the game).
You can't change that, I already called blizzard up via the 1-800 number.
The D3PREFS.TXT file is a plain text file recording the options you've picked from the Diablo III game interface. Editing it in Notepad in no way enables you to get results that would not be selectable from within the game. I'd frankly be amazed if altering this file (especially as per the instruction of a Blizzard forum moderator) would be cause for the Warden to take notice as the whole point of the preferences file is that it is not static, it's intended to be changeable.
Why would blue posters advise you to do something that would cause you to be banned?
