If someone can put up with me for a sec, im not the smartest pc person..

I did option 1 and checked game client.. says english US

Did option 2, changed patch to enUS from SG

But... When I opened c:/programdata/ << blank space

I have nothing in there, no hidden folders or anything.. Did I do something wrong?


What OS are you using mate? if it is windows XP then it is different and is in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Battle.net\Agent\

If it is windows 7 your using then try just coping this C:\ProgramData\Battle.net\Agent\ and pasting it into your address bar in a windows explorer window, thats the best way to access it.

Yeah mate here:

1. Open Terminal.

2. On Terminal, navigate to your Diablo III folder by typing the following:
cd "/Applications/Diablo III"
(If you did not install it on the default location, type the correct path.)

3. Make a backup copy of the original .agent.db file first. On terminal, type:
cp .agent.db dotAgent.db.bak

4. Still on Terminal, type the following command to open .agent.db on TextEdit:
open -a TextEdit .agent.db

5. find the "patch_url" line and change its value to:
http://enUS.patch.battle.net:1119/patch
Obs: Do not remove any of the quotes or comas. Change the patch_url and nothing else.

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)
/Users/Shared/Battle.net

8. Once inside the Battle.net folder, select and move the Agent folder to trash. (don't skip this step)

9. Start the Launcher.

Hi Narull,
I followed your instructions (not a computer geek) as follows:
C:\Games\Diablo III\Data_D3\PC\MPQs there will be a folder in there called en** (example enUS) this is your client, note that if you changed the default install location when you installed the game it will be different.
I have three folders enUS, ENSG, esMX and esES. Now I am totally confused.
I am having withdrawal symptoms!!!

When you edited the file did you change all 3 of the strings of http://enSG.patch.battle.net:1119/patch ?

It should appear 3 times and need to change them all to http://enUS.patch.battle.net:1119/patch

Sorry running low on ideas for your case =/ If you where in Brisbane I'd say come get the client from me XD

I used the search function (Ctrl + F) and found 5 enSG namely :
-diablo_enSG
-patch_url : http://ensg.patch.battle.net:1119/patch
-installed locales : [ensg]
-display locales [ensg]
-launch arguments : [ensg]

Which do I edit? A quick response would be nice. :)

Your in the wrong file, your in the agent file which is in the Diablo 3 folder, you need the agent file which is in the hidden folder at C:\ProgramData\Battle.net\Agent\ (copy and paste that into windows explorers address bar).

If you copy and paste this C:\ProgramData\Battle.net\Agent\ into a windows explorer address bar it will open the folder with the agent.db file in it, just copy the agent.db file to your desktop or such as a backup.
