Diablo® III

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

I have an Intel 3770K, 16 gb Ram, and a GeForce GTX 670 on my desk top. During gameplay I can happily walk around with my barb with it winding up to over 100 fps. During multiplayer and with heaps of spells being cast, it lagged to the max and I had to lower the FPS to around 70.

Will try the above suggestions and see how it goes.

My Hardware Class was originally at 6??

No joy here. Two GTX 580's in SLI. For those of you still having issues, it may be unrelated to some of the FPS issues others are having. In my case, I get severe lag EVERY time I move the mouse pointer. If I don't touch the mouse, I easily get 60FPS or higher at max settings. As soon as I start moving the mouse, that drops by 50 to 75%. Might want to check that. Be sure to enable the FPS display using CTRL + R in game. I've put this in a separate post here:

There is a thread for NVIDIA users somewhere. In the global settings turn on VSync to Adaptive and disable it in game. I will try it.

It didn't totally fix the problem. It did help somewhat though :) I approve of this (sort of) fix! :D Also when I tried it I found my first legendary xD Horrible Pus Spitter but still the first one I have ever found :D

Edit. Forgot to mention. Using ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470.

Since i bought this game ive never ran into any issues with it. run it all on high, any res i want, have multiple background applications, heck always had it on windowed mode while i watch youtube videos, but about a month ago i started having crazy lag out of nowhere, tried posting on tech forum, googled almost every day, tried soooo many different methods, and this one was perfect

i suggest anyone having issues out of nowhere ( not from the start of you playing-thats probably just because your connection or computer cant handle it imo) definently try this,

worked for me

EDIT: GeForce GTX 260M

I have been to the far depths of cyberspace and I have returned victorious!

Diablo 3 has been totally UNPLAYABLE since about patch 1.05. My latency sits around 250ms in town and when fighting normal monsters. As SOON as a rare/champion comes into range, I might as well just ALT-F4 is so bad. Being a Wizard with the little life I have, you can only imagine my frustration when I'm at the point I can't afford to repair my items!!!

I have finally conquered this beast! Installed Windows Server 2008 R2 64Bit, Awesome desktop OS! :P Under Disk Management, I created a MS VHD (Virtual Hard Drive), allocated 3GB of free space from each of my 6 Drives. I then published these drives onto the network using iSCSI Software Target. I installed Microsoft iSCSI Initiator and created a loopback for the drives. Having these drives now in Disk Management, I converted them to dynamic disks and then created a RAID 5 array from the "Published Virtual Network Drives". With a 15GB RAID array, Diablo 3 fitted perfectly :P Tested the transfer speeds, around 40mb/sec.

Straight up copy of D3 from my C: to the RAID and ran the game... NO LAG? ITS GONE ?!# IMPOSSIBLE ?!@#?@!?

Load the game from my C:..... LAG!?!? WTF ?!

Before u say, aaah crap hard drive etc...
This is my OS drive, my pagefile is split across 2 OTHER drives aswell:
Western Digital WD RE4 WD1003FBYX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"

Explain ?#!@

Hardware Class for diablo 3 just turns on and off different special effects and or renders some special effects in a different way. Eg mage shield.
