Good Morning Kaltonis,
Thank you for your helpful post - it was for me lol.
I unchecked the C drive contents indexing and wow, what an improvement.
I would say at least a 97% improvement in playing.
Instead of rubberbanding every 2-3 seconds, I only saw it one time, and for a much shorter distance than previously - maybe just a few feet instead of an entiry screen.
There were about 4-5 hesitations (like a short stop in playing, lasting just a split second) as I was playing - as if it wanted to rubberband me back, but then didn't do it for some reason.
This happened during about 5 quick minutes of playing. I'll go back and disconnect it for sub-folders and files and see if that helps.
Oh, one other thing. Could have been my imagination, but it seemed to want to stutter (rubberband) more (or only) when there were enemies (or I was kiting them) on the screen. I'll try and confirm that later this morning.
Thanks again for your help, now I can go back to playing.
Update: Disconnected the sub-folders and files, played the game for about 6-8 minutes.
Out in an open area (leaving Tristam via the backgate), it only stuttered once for just a split second. Had several battles with mobs, including some blues I had to kite and just that one time.
But, when I walked back into town - again, using the backgate instead of a portal to leave that open area - it started again. Not the big rubberbanding I had previously, but the stutter, as if it stopped for a split second. And that happened during the entire walk from that backgate to the front gate (almost continuously).
If I can duplicate this, I'm going to re-connect the sub-folders and files and see if that makes a difference.
Last update: Only had one very small stutter out in the field behind the town in 30 minutes playing time. Walked back into Tristram and ran from the back gate to the front gate - and back and to the front again - only 2 very minor stutters. And that's still with everything disconnected. I'll leave it that way - still hoping for a long-term solution though.
