This is how you can change the patch_url without the need to reveal hidden files and folders. If you can already see hidden files, just go in your Diablo III folder on Finder and open the .agent.db file as you would normally do.
Make sure you understand the instructions before you start.
---------- How to change the patch_url by editing the .agent.db file on Mac OS X.
This is how you can set your client to get updates whenever they're released in the Americas region: (Shouldn't be needed if you use a client meant for the region you play in.)
1. Open Terminal.
2. On Terminal, navigate to your Diablo III folder by typing the following:
3. Make a backup copy of the original .agent.db file first. On terminal, type:
4. Still on Terminal, type the following command to open .agent.db on TextEdit:
5. find the "patch_url" line and change its value to:
6. Save and close the file. (If asked to unlock the file, do it.)
7. Now go in the Battle.net folder: (Using Finder. You don'tt need to use terminal anymore)
8. Once inside the Battle.net folder, select and move the Agent folder to trash. (don't skip this step)
9. Start the Launcher.
(Obs: Those using an English client (enUS, enGB or enSG) should avoid changing language of the game after doing this. - Meaning, leave it blank and don't mess with it unless you undo the changes to the patch_url first)

You changed the language... You shouldn't.
Bro Barthus: I followed your steps 1 to 7 but no avail. Both my windows & mac showed that i downloaded the patch 1.03b but when i clicked "PLAY" the version still show the old one.
If you simply change the patch_url but stop following the instructions before step 8, nothing will change.
