6h Diablo 3 won't launch Hello Used to be able to play the game just fine but decided to play again after a long break but now the game just hangs on startup.

Msinfo: Dxdiag: Help please! :DVibe28 6h
7h teleporting back to desktop :) Wanted to look into this Season aggain and found myselfe with a weird issue the game runns fine, no laggs nor fps drops of any kind, BUT every now and then when I "teleport" (regardles if klicking on a portal into a rift/ going up a rift lv/ porting back with T from anywhere) the game just shuts... just like that, as if I pressed Alt+f4 instead of T and I'm looking at a nice empty desktop °-° no other issues, nor doas it happen in a regular timeframe, but often enought to be annoying as f*** (even more since I'm playing hardcore) any ideas? ** and no error code or error sound either, just gone... with the wind.. ** I should mention nvidia drivers a fairly new, card is a nvidia titan the game runns windowed and musik as well as browser ar running on another monitor, they are not affected - no other software pops up in my mind that could produce this kind of fun reaktion, what did I miss?^^schigi0 7h

17h Starting D3 reboots my pc right after the D3 logo Hey guys , im having a hard time here with this game . I´ve been playing the new season without any problems , until 2 days ago . Every single time i start the game , right after the D3 logo appears , my computer just reboots randomly . It only happens with Diablo 3 , i have other Blizzard games installed , and none of them have this issue . I´ve tried to Scan and Repair , nothing changed , the problem persists . I´ve updated my graphics drivers , still the same . i have an AMD Radeon R9 380 Series . AMD new programs now have ReLive option , that has an Overlay , so i disabled it since that can cause problems with some Blizzard games . Didnt changed anything , still rebooting my pc . Tried to run the game on a 32bit instead of 64 , nothing . Here is my Msinfo : And my DxDiag : As i said , i´ve been playing great 2 days ago :-/iNvFilipe241 17h
20h Corsair K63 not working in D3 So my keyboard works fine in absolutely all other blizzard games and everything else I've done on my computer. However, once I open D3 it does not register any inputs from my keyboard and the only way to fix it is to reset my pc. Has anyone run into this or have a fix?Pwrh0use1 20h
1d Un-killable elite monsters I've been experiencing elite monsters that basically are killed (health down to almost zero and inactive) but not quite and they don't drop anything (so, not really killed). Just happened twice in the same rift and the monsters are standing passive at the same place even I return to them several minutes later. This started happening a couple of weeks ago (that's at least my feeling), have never seen it before. No crashes or warnings, game keeps on playing. My follower is doing her best to kill the monster... (ie, keeps on hitting it) :DZyxomaniac2 1d
4d Diablo can't initialize D3D Sorry for making a topic about this again but i get this error frequently mostly when i alt tab and sometimes while i play too, it never appears on start up tho . I've updated my drivers, changed DisplayModeWindowMode to 0,1,2, scanned the game, but i am still getting the error a lot of times everyday.Diane2 4d
4d Diablo 3 D3D error So a day ago my game started to crash. Have been reading and looking for answers. Reinstalled everything. Updated everything. Running 32bit version. Turned of everything that should. Tried uninstalling Logitech gaming experience program. And nothing. I can play for a bit and then it crashes. Usually when I alt tab out. This is my Msinfo and Dx files :!AoK6vKtBZk5rjgJqbFn3YjrO0UrS Don't know why it does not work anymore, some days ago I could game just fine. I did what was written here and nothing. Still got the same error.FuturePhunk4 4d
4d Game Crashing & Intermittent Latency Been back playing for Season 15 and I've been having some real issues with the game in the last week and really since I started up again: Latency fluctuates, game becomes unresponsive or I can move around but nothing else happens Sometimes will have no visible latency issues but game soft crashes, I can still move around but areas won't load, skills do nothing but still connected to the game, in multiplayer my character still moves and uses skills as if my screen hasn't caught up Game crashes outright, screen freezes and have to force quitAt no point have I received an error message or been disconnected from the game. I have gone through the troubleshooting, updated drivers etc but the issues keep happening at random. I can play the game without incident for an entire evening then next day I have all the issues occur at random. Becoming really frustrating, having no issues with any other games and WoW seems fine.Malpheron4 4d
3d Single Player Game "Only Available to Party Leader" I'm trying to play my Diablo 3 single player campaign but am unable to resume my game, as the button is is grayed out and says "Only Available to Party Leader". I have never played online with people before, only with myslef. I am trying to play my game on a windows when I was originally on a mac, so I'm not sure if that has anyting to do with it, but they are both using the same account. I also tried going back to see if I could play it on my mac, but the resume game button is greyyed out on that one as well. Any help would be appreciated.Lazersnackz3 3d
5d There was an error sending whisper (Code 1) Every PM in Chat gives the little window popup with (Code 1) error. I mean every single chat pm gives the same Code1 error. It is happening to everyone else in my clan and on friends list as well. This is not my problem, but is a problem for all. Just to mention I recycled my Router after shutting down my network devices first. 1) unplugged router for 5 minutes, then start again. 2) boot devices up. 3) then ran /release and /renew and /flushdns before logging in to D3 again.Chetanji1 5d

13 Oct not working I haven't been able to get my D3 or launcher to work for some time now...I assume it is because I am using windows vista? I had been just playing my old D2 game in off line mode, I finally got a good internet connection and decided to go back on line with D2...but when I went to connect with battle net I got this message... "Your CD key is currently being used by: Claimed on" you cannot use more than one CD key. I am the one who paid for this did someone else obtain my key? How do I regain my game play ability?LoneKnight1 13 Oct
2d [Feedback] [Query] Offline Connection to PC Hi, I currently own two Diablo III, one on my console and the other on my PC. My playing style is solo, and I rarely ever do play Co-op/Multiplayer, evidently the console version of Diablo is way more enjoyable than the PC version because latency and connection do not factor in at all. This is, of course, very subjective because it depends on players' connections. My connection is only good half of the time, and even in the good half there is that 90-150ms delay which is noticeable. For my own reasons, I currently can only play on PC and/or laptop. My question/feedback, is to allow Diablo to be played on the PC without latency and connection affecting solo gameplay. However, if this is already an option, I would greatly appreciate if how to do so can be pointed out. I'm certain this might have been raised since the console version was released, however, I hope my voice matters or is taken into consideration nonetheless.Azzooz2 2d

10 Oct Skill Cooldowns Indicator doesn't show Something odd happened today when I re-opened Diablo 3 this afternoon for a bit of Paragon farming and Item Grinding. I started a game and then noticed that when I activated any skills that uses a cool-down, the indicator that shows how much of the skill cool-down remains was not being displayed on the skill icon. Leaving the game and starting a new game didn't resolve the issue. All that worked was to completely exit Diablo 3 and re-launch. I've never seen this "bug" before, so I must assume it's a new thing. Just for the record, I've not been able to reproduce the circumstances with which this bug showed up, so perhaps it's lucky I recorded the video to show what happened. Here is the YouTube link: 10 Oct

10 Oct stuck on "Updating setup files" Fix Taken from: ty verry much guys Fix 1 worked for me !!!! Fix #1 Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services Scroll down and find “Secondary Logon” Right Click > Properties Change it from ‘Disabled’ to ‘Automatic’ Run your Diablo 3 setup as administrator and it should quickly go through Updating Setup Files and bring you to an install screen. Congratulations, your game now (hopefully) works! If this solved your issue, spread it around. Fix #2 Right click on the Diablo 3 setup file you downloaded via the Blizzard Downloader Select Properties > Compatibility > Check Run this in Compatibility Mode for… > Choose Windows XP (Service Pack 3) (Note: Does not work on Vista.) Right Click the Icon, Run as Administrator. Fix #3 Delete your C:\ProgramData\ folder. Delete your C:\ProgramData\Blizzard Entertainment\ Cache folder. Run the Downloader again, as administrator, and see if it gets past the “Updating Setup Files” window. If not, see Fix #1. Fix #4 (Thanks Ron!) This one worked for me: try and find the agent application in the folder (for example C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\\Agent). Start the agent application manually and after that start Diablo III setup file in your Diablo-III-8370-enGB-Installer folder. Good luck! Fix #4a – Clarification for Fix 4 by GarytheOak 1. Run the diablo insall thing… let it get stuck. 2. Close it, and ctrl+alt+delete and end the “Agent” process. 3. Go to C/programdata/ and run the “Agent” executable 4. Run the diablo install thing 5. WAIT! it will get stuck for a min or so and then work Credits: ty verry much guysPeanutt53 10 Oct

5d Missing Set out of my Armory Hi, I had the Phoenix Set for the wizard that I earned in the (next to) last season. I had saved it in my wizards armory cabinet under "Phoenix". I had not been logged in in a while; but now when I logged in to play it was gone. The armory tab "Phoenix " is still there, but the set is gone. Can you explain why it is gone and if it is possible to get it back. BrdgsShecky11 5d

06 Oct Game crashes loading areas Ever since I started playing again a few days ago, my game crashes randomly when loading certain areas. Outside of this the game runs as it should. As soon as I click the next rift floor, area, or travel to a different place on the map, the game will freeze for a couple of seconds and then close off. The crash usually happens on average around every 10-20 zones I'd say, and it doesn't seem zone specific as certain areas have crashed and loaded on different occasions. I last played actively a few months ago with no problems at all, and since then the game has needed updating. I've tried reinstalling the game, even removed other softwares off my computer in case they were conflicting somehow, and still it continues to crash randomly. Someone mentioned about turning down graphics etc, I've checked those and all were as they were when I last played with no problems. My computer should also have no issues running D3 and never has done in the past, so I don't think the problem is hardware related. Is anyone else having this issue? I've asked some players and they've all responded no. If not, does anyone know a fix?Ryan1 06 Oct

05 Oct Authenticator Issues I am trying to setup DIII again after over 5 years away (bought when it first came out). As part of accessing my purchase and downloading and installing again, it's asking me to refresh my Authenticator. So I downloaded the application again, gave it storage rights, logged into my account, plugged in the code sent via text, and now it's stuck on "Setting up..." To fix I've tried uninstalling, restarting, re-installing and trying again, to no avail. I'm on a Pixel 2 XL running Android 9 with latest patch (Oct 5, 2018) Thanks!Drutlana1 05 Oct
04 Oct Authentication - game key - not valid Hi, I bought the game on cd, few years ago. I played it twice, and after that i did not had time to play again until now. In that time i have a new computer, but the same account - the problem is when i tried to input the code i received a message ”the code was already used” or something like that. How is that possible - i have the same account and the same CD? Please help me. I tried to send a ticket but the message failed to send. I have the original cd and his original package, with the code on it.Daccad13 04 Oct
04 Oct FoV/ UI Scaling Hi all. I was hoping someone of some support would assist me on this. I have read the previous posts and i have searched the internet but i cant find any work around. My PC screen broke so I'm using a TV monitor for playing games. In every other game my resolution is 100% fine, I can play and see everything but in Diablo 3 I am on the same resolution as the computer but everything seems to be zoomed in. Like if I open the cube and my bags the 2 overlaps with each other. And the actual gameplay field of view seems to be smaller as well now. Is there any kind of work around or fix for this? Maybe a setting for FOB or a way I can just change the actual UI Scaling? If not when will this be patched. It is really annoying since everything seems so Damn BIG! Kind Regards RekkovRekkov3 04 Oct

03 Oct Trouble with installation (and not only) Hello, I've been having lots of trouble with First, I had problems with StarCraft II (on my other account) working properly. While I was able to launch it, it showed more or less as if it was a new account (not showing things like portrait, achievements, match history etc.). I tried logging out and again in, also waiting and slowly it started showing some of these things of my profile but still it wasn't functioning well. After a very long time of waiting (I guess nearly an hour, but all information regarding time is approximate), it still wasn't fully ready and I wasn't able to start a match in any mode. I also installed Diablo III and it was working more or less fine, except for some problems with logging in, disconnects and crashing, but at least it was working. Having uninstalled, together with StarCraft II and Diablo III, I have been trying to reinstall it again. However, the installer takes lots of time to install and usually it "freezes at a certain point". First for approximately 5-10 minutes it just shows "Updating Agent" or something like that. If it manages to get to the next phase "Installing Blizzard" it tends to freeze at 0% for a long time. If, by some chance, I manage to install the whole thing, and I click to install Diablo III, then it shows the windows where I can choose the destination folder and start the installation but the "Install" button is greyed out and the logo keeps spinning around. I think that in my recent events I only once managed to get beyond this phase but then first it took unusually lots of time doing some stuff related to "patch indices" (or something like that) and then when it started downloading, despite initially downloading at a reasonable speed, the speed soon started decreasing. What I did to solve the issue: - uninstalling and trying to reinstall - turning my laptop off and on - restarting my rooter - deleting everything I could find on my laptop's hard disk that had "" or "Blizzard" in its name - uninstalling my antivirus and disabling Windows Defender I'm not sure how to solve these problems. Not sure if it is connected in any way but I'm also having some problem with EA Origin and with Internet Explorer and Edge browsers. Everything else seems to be working fine and fast (including other browsers).Michał3 03 Oct

02 Oct Lost account Hi, this is not my problem, is for a friend.

01 Oct Lagging stash So in 2.6.1 lagging stash is still a problem. Read it on the US forums a lot and here. Is there a way to sort this? Seems to occur when I do speed runs mainly which slows the whole group. Someone says it doesn't happen if they are in a different town to the rest of the group so I need to test this. Is this being looked at? Can take forever for stash items and items on person to load. I can see they are there when I hover the mouse over my stash...jme0 01 Oct
01 Oct Diablo II patching problems Hello, I understand this is a diablo 3 forum, but there is no diablo 2 forum except for some random fan ones. First of all, I really hate the fact that Diablo II is not on the launcher. When I tried to go online for the first time it patched to 95% and then said my files were corrupt. Which is funny because I just installed it. Then when I tried to reconnect and download the necessary patches again it says "disconnected from" and I need to reconnect, but I simply cannot. So I cannot play online with friends... any thoughts?Gourmandises2 01 Oct
