4d FIX THE SHUTTER! It's been forever now. And still no fix?! Only workaround is to play in Full screen (window) And then you loose some FPS. Why have you not fixed this after so many years?

If you need some, there is many Topics on this.StoneOcean1 4d

11 Mar Season 16 Problems Hi, I'm on Chapter IV and have completed all objectives bar one. Which is 'Great Expectations' where you need to reach Level 20 Solo on the Greater Rift mode. I have done that and have not received my rewards for completing the last Chapter. What have I missed? I have no way of finding out if I have missed any levels but am sure I've haven't.Caliburn6 11 Mar

07 Mar "Stuttering" but no FPS loss. The issue I'm having seems to be different to most reported... I'm not getting any fps loss at all and the game runs really smooth most of the time, but every 20 mins or so for a very small amount of time, it feels like there is a Stuttering occurring... Even though the fps remains at 60. Anyone else experience / resolve this? It happens regardless of settings, but I'm running on full everything at 4k with no issues outside of this. My specs: Ryzen 5 1600 RTX 2060 6gb 16gb DDR4 ram.lastapproach3 07 Mar

01 Mar Question about importing from the cloud Hi, I'm very sorry if this isn't the right place but I am unable to post a thread without upgrading my account and I only want to ask this one question. I have previously played Diablo 3 (original with no expansion) while I had an Xbox live account. At that time I saved my characters on the cloud. Since then I have not played and have no longer got the live account. I want to play the game, however I want to know what will happen when I get Xbox live again, can I merge the characters from online and offline together? Or will I need to choose one set of characters to keep. (Assuming I want to have them all accessable on other Xboxes in the future). I would also like to know if the characters will be playable with any patches that I get.mAGPIe0 01 Mar

24 Feb Nintendo Switch - Seasoned HC bug So long story short => Created a HC - leveled up today - and while i was doing a regular rift, my character decided to stay in one place and don't do anything - - was not feared/trapped etc, but i could not use any skill/ability or attack in general and i could not use potions either and none of them were on CD - Now it would be just for few second or so.. i would say yeah i missed something. but the character was practically standing in one place for 30-40 seconds without allowing me to do anything. - i could access the menu - go back to "play" but i had to watch character getting wrecked. any suggestions ? possiblity to restore it ? as it was hardly my fault in this scenario anyone encountered such issue?L3head0 24 Feb
24 Feb Account Transfer to new PC Hello! I'm not very good with computers and tech, so please bear with me! The PC I've been using to play both Diablo 2 and 3 is getting old and has problems, so I am about to get a new PC. I read elsewhere that I should be fine with my D3 account because I can just log in to the Blizzard site on my new computer and get things going from there. But what about D2? I purchased it through the online Blizzard store...but that seemed to be a download rather than running the game through the internet? Will I have to purchase it all over again, or is there a way to transfer from the old PC to the new one? Thanks!!Keela1 24 Feb

18 Feb Huge lag spikes while playing Greetings everyone, I am experiencing huge lag spikes in Diablo 3. Bellow you have a video of the issue: As you can see in the video, pinging at the same time returns a very fast response, approximately 14-20 ms. This issue is only happening in Diablo III. I have never experienced this in any other game. This issue killed me on hardcore twice in the past and I just quit the game. Right now I'm eager to play it again and I have just reinstalled windows wiping all the data from the Hard Disk in hopes that it may fix this issue, but it didn't. This is becoming very frustrating. I have an 100 Mbps symmetric internet connection: The other game I play most of the times is DotA 2 and I have never experienced anything like this. I love this game but this issue is killing me. I really hope some one can help me fix it.Mizz1 18 Feb

28 Feb D3 PS4 edition - Cant Play with friends Hello all, Im writting here to see if i can get a little help. My friend and i have been trying to play this game on the PS4 online we both have copies of the game, playstation plus subscription and we also forwarded the necessary ports on our own routers but we still get a " there was a problem connecting" error when we try to join each others game and/or party in game All other games work diablo 3 is the only game that will not let us play together... after some research i found that this is an OLD issue..... why is it so hard to play with your friends online... isnt that the opposite of what you guys should be doin, you should be helping players play together.... not preventing them.... i feel ive just been throwing money at the issue, ended up buying the game twice and adding PS plus to 2 different accounts thinking it was an issue with my account, only to find that it still didnt work.... please let me know what i can do to get this to work.....Dehlasoul6 28 Feb
12 Feb Lower FPS, and it won't move. Greetings players, So with little back story i just moved and i have just my laptop i use to work on for university, it is not meant for gaming but it runs Heartstone and Diablo pretty good, well at least it did. When i first moved i played Diablo 3 on around 50 FPS, now i can not get higher then 20 - 23 FPS, this is really frustrating, specially where i did play this on 50 FPS before. Playing with just around 20 FPS is possible alone, but i can not play with anybody else in multi-player, as the game just lags so bad i can barely move, or doing any Greater rifts above 95. I have tried several things like: - Running D3 in 32-bit, increases FPS to 30 but it is less steady, even in single player it drops to 3 FPS when there are many mobs, in 64-bit at least it stays around 10 - 15 FPS. - Playing around with the D3prefs, changing plenty of setting there, but it does not really help. Now of course before coming and typing here i have tried out several "potato settings" modes, but the thing is, how bad i even make my D3 look, the FPS stays the same, if i lower my resolution to 800 x 600, it stays widescreen and it gives me max 3 - 5 more FPS, which is not a lot at all, and the FPS is just higher when i stand and do nothing. I am coming here with hopes for help, cause whatever i do the FPS won't just move above 25, Potato settings or not, which really sucks. The laptop is not even getting really warm.

12 Feb Crash upon Launch Hi, I never had this problem before but after the season 13 update today, I can't launch the game now. Here's the error code: A0FABD34-6D8F-4689-A302-72EAB473E79F What happens is I click "PLAY", Diablo 3 logo pops up, seems to load, white screen, then crashes and the error window popsup. Things I've tried: -Uninstalled and reinstalled the game. -Deleted all cache files -Restarted Computer -Updated Graphics Card (Nvidia GTX970) -Updated Windows Updates (there were no new updates tho) -Disabled Antivirus active scan feature (Bitdefender) -Disabled GameDVR and Gamebar Recording features -Disabled Blizzard App Record Feature -Disabled Nvidia recording feature (it was already off tho) -Scan and Repair -Tried 32bit launch: this actually made it worse. The loading logo pops up but then nothing happens. I cannot even find any Diablo related tasks in my task manager, but the Blizzard App says the game is "Running." Even after restarting Blizzard app, the "Running" is still there. I had to restart my computer/log out of my Windows account to fix the issue. Still no luck.... Help Please :(CIK10 12 Feb

10 Feb Problem with Authenticator, need help ASAP Hi I don't know if i'm writing this in the correct Forum , but a friend has a major problem with his Authenticator and thus can't log in his account. So he got a new phone and he ended up having to install the Blizzard app again and it wanted an Authenticator code from the Authenticator which was connected to his phone and he can't get a code. To remove his Authenticator support wants to get a picture of his ID card, which he is not willing to give because he has had bad experience in the past, he had his ID information leaked from a big company which I won't mention, so he doesn't want to give his ID. And my question is : Is there an other way to remove the Authenticator so that he can log into his account?kokicha2 10 Feb
