Diablo® III

patch required loop

I just got it fixed after 1h :P. It works just fine now on europe servers. Just follow the exact steps in there (deleting some folders too). On windows 7 to be able to see hidden files - http://windows.microsoft.com/is-is/windows7/show-hidden-files

Not everyone has the time to go into their files and screw around with all that stuff maybe for you this is a quick 10 minute fix but for me if i am required to this is a project that could last hours.

I was only 'playing' diablo to relist my items in RMAH

if they do not provide a patch or hotfix for this I might just uninstall altogether

The bottum line is we should not have to fix there game for them, its not our responsibility to do any of it, unless its our systems that are at question. Untill they fix the issues they should NEVER release the content!.

I have uninstalled the game and reinstalled it completely twice, last night and this morning - still have the patch loop problem.

Thanks to TheTias for an answer to this problem over on another forum (http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/8197740566).

Apparently all we can do is wait until Blizzard has finished patching all of the regions and put them online.

Try this:

1. Navigate to your Diablo III folder.
2. Open the .agent.db file with WordPad.
3. Find the "patch_url" line and change its value to:

http://enUS.patch.battle.net:1119/patch

4. Save and close the file.
5. Now delete the Agent folder in the Battle.net folder: (don't skip this step)

Windows 7/Vista

C:\ProgramData\Battle.net

(Note that ProgramData and Application Data are hidden folders.)

6. Delete the Updates folder. (Diablo III\Updates)
7. Move the Diablo III.exe file out of the Diablo III folder.
8. Run Diablo III Launcher as admin by right clicking on the launcher and selecting "Run as admin".


I did steps:

1.
2. (LINK TO SHOW HIDDEN FILES: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/show-hidden-files-in-windows-7/

8.

And it worked, I can now play on Asia.

Thank you, this was very helpful, even though I didn't need the info myself.

It is sad that other players are doing a better customer support job than Blizzard themselves.

I had this issue this morning, followed the steps outlined 2 posts above and it fixed it for Asia and US...

now I came back from Mandarin class to find I can log on to US and Europe but not Asia?

Freaking weird...

FYI: Anyone having this problem should check Firewalls, Virus programs and or Blockers. I have PeerBlock installed and THAT is why I was getting a update loop. I disabled PeerBlock and everything worked fine.
