Diablo 3 gives me a headache
Hello fellow gamers :D While gaming diablo i experience an insane headache occurring. I am quite the nerd to say it proudly, and before diablo i would game other games like LOL, Skyrim, Starcraft etc. for several hours a day, without any problems. I know for a fact that my eyesight is fine so thats not the reason for the headaches that I get. I was wondering if I stand alone on this issue, or if any others have tried similar experiences with getting headaches from playing Diablo. I did consider it maybe having something to do with the graphics, so i tried lowering them, without fixing my headache though :/ Please share if you have experienced anything similar while gaming Diablo! Other than that, Diablo is an awesome game ofcouse, too bad I can only play it for very few hours at a time without having to stop and rest my head.32
Season 7 Conqueror "Slay Greed" is ludicrous!
So like last season I wanted to finish the Conqueror part from the season 7 journey to get my extra stash. I managed to finish every objective except "Money ain't a Thang" which tells you to kill Greed on T 13 difficulty. Sooo..... This is just abysmal! Until now I had the feeling that every season objective was some kind of fair challenge ( like last season when you had to complete 2 Conquests and for my last one I chose to solo a GR 75, which was super satisfying after I finally managed to do it and get my extra stash ) And what' s my last obstacle to get my stash this season? It s to open up a Bounty, and porting through parts of the map in the hope to find a treasure goblin, which actually opens a portal to greeds realm. The chance for this seem to be ridicilously low ( killed like 150 already and didn't open ones ). And yes, I already killed greed ones this season, but it was in the beginning, when my char only was capable of going through T 10, which was enough last season, since there was no T 13. It doesn't make it easier for me that I always try to solo my way through a new season stash for a kind of extra challenge. Because of the new T 13 difficulty this season objective just gets unbearable tedious. That was my little rant. I wanted to know if maybe anyone of you knows a good way to optimize my way to open up a portal to greeds realm ( like farming routes or anything? ). Thanks in advance!7
Goodbye Diablo.. been fun.
I'm not a hardcore Diablo player, I just play it casually, but my did I love this game. But as always they have to change things. Just like WoW, constantly changing stuff.. one moment you have learned all there is to your class and POOF! Best relearn your class from scratch eh! I wish there was a way NOT to accept this new patch, and be able to play the build before this one, offline if needs be. I can dream. Loved my wizard firebird set which I recently put together. I load up the game, open a GR at T7 and start blasting and immediately notice the patheticness that is my wizard.. I look at the set bonus of my firebird set and.. my first reaction is surprised then confusion then I remember I had to wait for a patch before I could play...then my emotions turned into rage and scream "BLIZZARD!!!! WHY?!?!?!!!" But seriously, you so TOTALLY ruined this game for me Blizzard. I'm so deeply disappointed and irritated I may just stop my subscription for WoW while I'm at it. Not like that will do anything...10
Wrath of the players about wasted potential
http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/blog/20242280/developer-chronicles-wrath-of-the-wastes-31-08-2016 I am a little astonished and wondering about how quiet it is in the US forum after this blog entry, we got to see this day. While in european forum already it started a little sh..storm about it, does noone on this side of the ocean read it? Mr. Cheng, sorry to say but you lost any feeling for the players. Like last time, when you wanted to tell us about, how long a fight against monsters should last or about the healing from potions or skills. Always your comments seem to be thousand lightyears away from the reality. I loved D3, played from the start, every season - but you lost me in june, because there is no more creativity, no more content and s7 is a bad joke about exploits, snapshots and bugs. You are always telling, we need you, but when PTR is done, feedbacks given and even solutions for actual problems given - nothing is taken for serious. We still have same bugs and exploits. You can even see them, how to activate, to use or to avoid by videos from Quinn, but did anyone heard what he told before S7? No. You are doing a d3 for yourself, but not for the community, because you lost any contact at all by ignorance. You should better go away and give D3 a chance without your "ideas" Please read his blog and get your own statement about it. I don´t want to tell what he told, for me it is all about bla bla bla. D3 and W.C. makes rip.2
Sprinter Guide v2 released
It's taken a while, but my full guide to the Sprinter Conquest is finally available for download! Just go to paulius.50webs.com/diablo3.html and choose which of the four parts to download -- or grab the whole thing in one file. As with version 1 (which didn't have the Runner sections), the idea is to print the tables and follow along throughout your conquest attempt. Part 1: Introduction -- advice for success and explanatory notes for the tables. Part 2: Town Camper -- detailed instructions that allow nearly any character to be a good Town Camper. Part 3: Runners -- distribution of tasks, important reminders and Maps! Part 4: Time Record -- for keeping track of progress and recording for posterity. (If you download the full version in one file, you may also want to grab the editable Word version of the Time Record.) Sorry about the redirect for two of the files. They're too big for my free web host, so I've had to host them on an ad-sponsored host. I'd love to hear any feedback! (But please be respectful.)0
Sudden Glitch, Login in to find my hero dead
Dear Blizzard, I recently got back to diablo 3 and I absolutely fell in love with the new system and have been playing every day and night, it got me so addicted. I created an seasonal hardcore crusader, I've created a very fun and exciting hammerdin, however today I logged in to find my hardcore character dead. So I beg to whom it may concern, my only hero Ive ever cherish, I would be a million times grateful if my hero could be rerolled.7
Local CO-OP for PC too!
You can correct me if I m wrong, but while reading blogs, forums(and while I have searched game myself) and such I haven't found a single hint of PC version having Local CO-OP, which I would love to have since it would be great to play with my girlfriend. (I believe I m not alone here?) Now that I have bought a PC and both original and RoS I seriously don't want to buy whole new console including console version of the game! In my opinion view that local CO-OP is for consoles only is history, and now when I can buy XBOX controllers for my PC too(which I have) I would love to have this console-type experience with my PC, while having those features of PC that I love over consoles.(this would also include controller support for PC which should not be too hard since they have already done key-bindings for consoles) Who's with me?!53
How to make healing wells useful
Healing well should remove the cooldown on effects that avoid death : Unstable Anomaly, Awareness, Spirit Vessel, Near Death Experience. Most classes can get their life back very fast thanks to life on hit, life regen, health globes, potion,... Healing wells are almost never used in this regard. It would respect the spirit of this shrine and the lore and make us take it, at least sometimes.1
All Blizzard games stopped working
After my last update on my Windows 10 computer, I continued playing Diablo III and Heroes of the Storm as I did before. But, after I started the "Blood and Sand" quest at Diablo III, the game crashed. The screen froze, but the sound was ok, and I could move my character and use all his abilities. i thought there was something wrong with Diablo, so I switched to HotS. But, the exact same thing happend there. I searched for a match, and when the match begun, the screen was frozen, but I could do everything else no problem. I don't know if it is because of the update I did on my computer, but I just bought Diablo III and I really wish to go on playing it...2
No new expansion coming for D3 .. D4 Confirmed.
Check Blizzards job list and check the Diablo list.114
Blood Shard Cap Question
So my sister and I were talking about the blood shard capacity and came up with a question I can't find the answer to. I have a wizard that has solo'd T9 Grifts at the moment (not wonderful, I know, but bear with me). If I then go back and do a T2 Grift, which I haven't done before, would that increase my blood shard capacity still? Or would I have already gotten that bonus for doing a Grift of higher level?3
Animated Overwatch™ Heroes Wallpapers (How to)
While waiting for the patch 2.4.1, here's something to mess with your gaming PC. :D This is how to turn the animated heroes background from Overwatch™ website as your desktop wallpaper. 1. Go to the Battle.net Overwatch™ page at http://eu.battle.net/overwatch/en/ 2. Select your desired hero. The web page's background will turn into an animated video of the character. 3. Right-click the background and click "Save video as...". Then save the webm file. Repeat steps 2 & 3 for other heroes you want. 4. Install VLC Media Player if you don't have it already. VLC website is at http://www.videolan.org/ To avoid complications, you must install the VLC Media player to its default directory. (i.e "C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC"), otherwise you'll need to modify the .reg file on the next step. 5. Copy and paste the following text to Notepad and save it with a .reg extension (Registration Entries). When done, double click the .reg file and merge the entries with the registry. Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.webm] @="VLC.webm" "PerceivedType"="video" "VLC.backup"="FirefoxHTML" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xspf] @="VLC.xspf" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VLC.webm\shell\SetAsWallpaper] @="Set As Live Wallpaper" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VLC.webm\shell\SetAsWallpaper\command] @="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\VideoLAN\\VLC\\vlc.exe\" --video-wallpaper --qt-start-minimized --no-qt-fs-controller --repeat --no-video-title-show --qt-notification=0 \"%1\"" ;-----------------------------------Additional video formats [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VLC.mp4\shell\SetAsWallpaper] @="Set As Live Wallpaper" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VLC.mp4\shell\SetAsWallpaper\command] @="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\VideoLAN\\VLC\\vlc.exe\" --video-wallpaper --qt-start-minimized --no-qt-fs-controller --repeat --no-video-title-show --qt-notification=0 \"%1\"" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VLC.wmv\shell\SetAsWallpaper] @="Set As Live Wallpaper" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VLC.wmv\shell\SetAsWallpaper\command] @="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\VideoLAN\\VLC\\vlc.exe\" --video-wallpaper --qt-start-minimized --no-qt-fs-controller --repeat --no-video-title-show --qt-notification=0 \"%1\"" ;-----------------------------------Additional video formats [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VLC.xspf\shell\SetAsWallpaper(NoRandom)] @="Set Playlist As Wallpaper (No Random)" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VLC.xspf\shell\SetAsWallpaper(NoRandom)\command] @="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\VideoLAN\\VLC\\vlc.exe\" --video-wallpaper --qt-start-minimized --no-qt-fs-controller --loop --no-random --no-video-title-show --qt-notification=0 \"%1\"" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VLC.xspf\shell\SetAsWallpaper(Random)] @="Set Playlist As Wallpaper (Random)" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VLC.xspf\shell\SetAsWallpaper(Random)\command] @="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\VideoLAN\\VLC\\vlc.exe\" --video-wallpaper --qt-start-minimized --no-qt-fs-controller --loop --random --no-video-title-show --qt-notification=0 \"%1\"" 6. Go to your downloaded *.webm file/s and right click a single file. If step 5 is successful, a "Set as Live Wallpaper" entry must be present in the context/popup menu. if not, restart your machine. On first run, you might be asked for some 'Privacy and Network Access Policy', just click "Continue". After that, VLC will run in the background (with an icon in your system tray). To activate another wallpaper, you need to exit the existing one by right clicking the icon in your sytem tray. Playlist as Wallpaper If you want multiple files as wallpapers, (as in using all heroes, the backdrop is constant anyways) you need to save the playlist to an *.xspf file (VLC playlist). You can also right-click this file in Windows Explorer and choose if you want to play it randomly or in order. Running at startup If you want the wallpaper to run at startup, follow these steps 1. Copy the text below, ... and paste it into the address bar of a Windows Explorer window. Your user's startup folder will open. 2. Copy the VLC Media Player's Shortcut from the Desktop and paste it into this folder. 3. Right-click the shortcut and Edit the target field. a. For single file, you'll need to add the following line at the end of the target text. Quotation marks included. ... Example: ... b. for playlists, add the following line on the VLC shortcut target field. ... Example: ... Other formats Setting other formats as Wallpaper is just a matter of registry entries. As long as its playable in VLC Media player, it can be used as a wallpaper. I have included the mp4 and wmv format in the registry file so we can also make an .mp4 and .wmv as the desktop wallpaper. Known Issues Icons do not show on top of the video. :D Well, that's because it's not a real wallpaper. It is just a video playing behind the taskbar. If you right-click the desktop, the context menu is for a video and not the usual desktop pop-up menu. And you can even exit VLC from there. I hope VLC developers will do something about it and make it a real animated wallpaper. Enjoy for the meantime. Tested on Windows 7 and 8.1 x642

In Game Warnings for Known Attacks DDOS Server Problems
Hello, Recently while playing hardcore d3 characters we lost 1 during the ddos attack mentioned by https://twitter.com/BlizzardCSEU_EN/status/768543611327832068 This message was posted to CS Twitter account while we were playing, so blizzard tech guys saw the problem, identified as attack, contacted someone who manages social media side vice versa and you sent the tweet. But while in game, we had no idea what was going on. I, for myself, barely felt any lag or disruption in game play until i suddenly dc'ed with error 3005 and also dropped from battle.net. I was lucky but my friends hc wizard died. We know about hardcore policy and it is OK. But i think if there was a system which warns players about "Known attacks, server outages etc" just like the twitter account , it would be a very nice addition. It is a time consuming habit to look for forums and social media before / while playing the game. And i guess not everyone is aware of the twitter accounts and such. A warning text in-game and on welcome screen ( Just the like for scheduled maintenance) will be a good addition. This still would not mean, if there is no warning , no DC'S will ever happen. Some attacks may come too fast, some faults can happen near instantly , we are OK With these. But if you know enough to post and warn on social media, just do the same via IN-GAME methods. So , if i was playing wow, i won't care maybe, but if it's Hardcore D3, i will log off and won't take risks. It is even possible to code this kind of warnings with SIEM devices and automate it if some network traffic becomes suspicous , over thresholds etc. Thanks,9
I wonder, When you purchase a game, say... Diablo 3. You probably sign an agreement that you shall not copy or distribute or whatever. Do they have an agreement on their part that you shall be able to play the game purchased, say... Diablo 3? It had occurred that I am only able to play this game when the player count is low, mainly during times when I shouldn't be able to play (late nights, work days on work hours), but had the chance to due to sickness or just a day off. I am sure I am not the only one. Who would sign a petition should such had been conjured? Maybe we could save few 10s of $ and spend it wiser next time.23
