Diablo® III

Diablo 3 graphics/lag FIX!!! edit config inst

Bump for this. GTX 250 here. When I logged in today my video and sound settings were reset. I was having an issue with my gpu overheating and black screening (There's a thread about it on here). I was able to fix it by manually setting vsync on AND setting max fps to 59, which is pretty weird but it worked and you had to set both. Anyway today, after I set my fps again, my card was pegged even when I was sitting at the main menu tabbed out (with background fps set to 8). So I came here and looked around a bit, and found this thread. Doing exactly what the OP said plus manually setting background fps to 8 worked for me. Went from 100% fan, 90C, 85% gpu usage to 70% fan, 70C and 60% gpu usage, all other settings the same as far as textures, shadows etc.

Was running as high as 80-90 FPS with settings maxed before the patch. My video settings were reset after the 6/19 patch, and the game runs at 15-22 FPS, regardless of video settings being all on low.

This did not work for me.

HOLY BUTTERSCOTCH!

This is working for me right now, I could be catching a good latency issue luckily, but it's never been this good, so I'm saying right now, this is what worked. Very smallllll lag spikes, but nothing bad at all, like my cluster arrow might skip a lag, which ain't !@#$ compared to not being even able to play.

I have crossfired Raedon 6850's.

And I approve this post.

EDIT: Not as perfect as I thought! It works somewhat better, but not as perfect as the past 30 minutes before were, but now it's kind of going back to lag spikes and !@#$.

Do you have two storage devices? I have my d3 initially running off my c drive which is my ssd, but however, my config file was actually under my d drive, which is where all my downloads are initially schedules to go to.

D:\NEDGO\Documents\Diablo III\D3prefs

double click it, and edit the lines he described in the notepad file and save.

Didn't help at all for me. I have a EVGA GTX 460.

It seemed to help other people, though, so that's good.

Using Intel 965 Intel Express Chipset
Game works, just saved Chain. Lag is at the point where its playable but not really ideal long term. Settings all on low and i have done the fix's previously stated. Please any help and improvement would be awesome.

Definitely helps reduce choppiness in certain areas for instance leoric's manor only problem is you cannot see shielding instead you just see a slight glow on the enemies, other than that I don't see any drawback to doing this.

I'm using it in combination with loading the MPQs from a thumb drive and the game is smooth as butter.

This didn't help on my laptop which has an i7 and nvidia 650M. Reduced to playing it on my old laptop which runs ok-ish on a 5470M. Pretty unhappy with the response from Blizzard on this.

Wow i bought a gtx 570 because my nvidea gtx 280 XFX xxx edition card was doing that black screening crap. Ive followed this advice and set my max fps to 65, hardware settings to 4 and disabled the filtering. A little better i must say, and its good to know my gtx 280 is ok!! lol

Hi I'm having a similar problem. When I first start the game up, it runs fine. But as I continue to play it get REALLY slow and it's hard to do anything. I tried changing the stuff in the file like WRAINE said but it didn't work. I have a NVIDIA 9100 graphics card. Any suggestions? Also I have everything turned on either low or off. This also happens with Starcraft 2.
