How about FPS drops? Always 60 FPS then suddenly 10-20 FPS when surrounded by lots of mobs? I got Nvidia GTX 670, so it's not a video card issue. Is this game really graphics demanding?

Honestly, the fact that Blizzard is resorting to Windows tweaks kind of shows that they really have no idea what the issue is. Or maybe they do know and either:

a) it requires a ton of work to correct due to it being a flaw in the renderer
b) they are not prioritizing the issue

I appreciate your effort Kaltonis (some communication is better than none), don't misunderstand me. But I think this stuttering issue is far more widespread than we originally thought and that it just honestly doesn't bug some people. But that doesn't make the problem any less inexcusable.

Kaltonis once claimed that he didn't suffer stuttering at all, and now in this thread he claimed that this fix improved his stuttering. (Sorry Kal, really not trying to smear you.)

I think it's one of those issues that once you see it, you can never unsee it. And it's going to annoy you.

Just my two cents.

i made a ticket a couple of days ago , they gave me this same "solution" , well it didn't work , it's a shame cuz i really really like diablo 3 , i want to play it (play it without stutter duh) , but i won't like this , it's game breaking and i have a brand new awesome pc that has no problems running any other of my 20 pc games ( BF3 , MW3 , GT4 , all with everything maxed out)

I turned it off completely, and am I quite amazed. I can run with full settings now, where as I had to turn them down.

bump bump. not a fix. I still die every elite fight from the lag. last one, I was about 3 screen lengths away from the elites and wondering why they weren't following me, then SNAP! I'm dead. Must be a new elite spell called "time warp"... sigh.

The frame skipping/stuttering in this game is horrible on all 3 of my PCs, and all of those PCs play all other games smoothly. JUST Diablo is a stuttery nightmare.

Clearly I am not alone, my post about "frame skipping / camera stutter" in the bug reports forum is about to reach the maximum 500 replies.

Can't play like this anymore. Every time I come back to check on progress, it is the same old lag spike/death issue. No point in playing. Uninstalling.

So funny, this is what you come up with Blizzard? Disabling drive indexing? Pathetic. Try fixing your damn game. Disabling drive indexing is something that is recommended for users of SSD's...not to fix your game that you can't seem to fix.

What next? Disable your page file? Turn off the firewall? Disable anit-virus? Defragment the drive.

Blizzard, if your game stutters because of DRIVE INDEXING...then your game programming sucks!
