Seriously, try this.
It helped me.
Game still has problems, but this definitely helped.
I been lock from playing the game for 5 days with the same problem.
At first I thought it was my wireless, so I reseted the router. Also, restarted the computer and the problem continued. I'm now wired to the router, and still getting lag spikes.
The game was fine.
Not sure what happened and how to fix it.
Since 1.0.4, I cannot play Diablo III smoothly on OS X, as it is severely choppy when I am killing a plenty of monsters with FPS about 15. When walking in towns like New Tristram, FPS can be over 70, but it is still a bit choppy.
On 1 September, I played on my friend’s Diablo III for Windows with a lower CPU and GPU; although its FPS was only about 35 and even 15 when killing many monsters, it was never choppy at all.
I do not need and care about high FPS. I just want to play this game smoothly.
Hey guys, can you try something?
Before you launch Diablo 3, close the maximum amount of windows and apps you can (check for the blue dot below the icon the dock, quit all applications).
Now, launch a terminal window (⌘ + space, type "terminal" with no quotes and press enter).
Type "purge" with no quotes and press enter. If you are afraid of what this command does, simply type "man purge", with no quotes or have a look at this page: http://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man8/purge.8.html
Now open Diablo 3 launcher and run it.
All the purge command will do is alleviate low memory situations by ditching any disk cache that resides in RAM. This will help temporarily in a low (<4 GB) RAM situation, but will not be of much use with ≥4 GB RAM unless you have a ton of apps open.
I should know - I run purge before every launch of both D3 and WoW, and have done so for years. Mind you, it can free up a significant amount of RAM that OS X just won't let go of normally for some reason, but it won't fix any stuttering issues. That's an asset loading problem.
