I don't see the file "d3prefs.txt" under Diablo 3.... How do you get a work around to work if you don't have that?

fix worked for me after first save. tried to free up some more space on my hard drive too cope with some lag... the lag seems to come and go... it's playable... but in the worst way... waiting for a new comp... still persevering with the intel 4 graphics family chip.

close all other programs besides d3.

Hi, just for said that with a Intel Pentium M (1,76GHz) and a NVidia GeForce 6800GT, it's work. But there is a few lag and all going slow but in coop, the other players help a lot so it's playable. Thank you for the fix :-)

I can't get the "d3prefs.txt" File no matter what I do... * tears* Btw how come I can play World Of Warcraft on my Laptop but not This? WOW seems to have better graphics..So I'm confused.... Does anyone know any other walk arounds?... Cause otherwise I just wasted $60...

Also when I do the esc button thing it says my drivers are not all updated.. Does anyone know all the drivers and versions that need to be used to play the game. Thanks in advance.

Why can't you just make this game work with every other graphic card just like any other games =( We want to enjoy the game and story not so much on the graphic..

I just hit esc after the error popped up. And i got diablo 3 cant run because this graphics card is missing required features. No worries though. The laptop i got for free from my g/f and i have a nice rig. Just wanted to d3 @ work tonight. a smidge of halp finding the txt file'd be nice though. not game breaking - for me @least.

Tamer,
Thank you so much for your simple, working solution. Even I could figure it out. If I had a firstborn, they'd be express mailed to you as we speak. Now if only the servers were up. I love me some Blizzard Launch Day shenanigans!

I too have tried to find this evasive little file, D3Prefs.txt, to no avail.

Would it be possible to instead, have someone post the contents of the file somewhere and allow those of us who can't get it to appear to simply create it and copy paste the contents?
