Diablo® III

Screen changes when mousing over items, NPC's

So, I was away from D3 for a while and started playing again and I've noticed that when I mouse over items or NPC's when the tootip pops up to show the name of what I'm mousing over, the screen will change color slightly and the "fog" on the screen seems to go away. Is this something new they added to make it easier to see when you mouse over something or is there something going on?

I don't see anything like what you're describing. It's most likely something due to a limitation or feature in your video drivers or video card's capabilities. You might try adjusting the in-game video options to see if any affect it if it bothers you.

Thanks! It must have been something with the driver. I went into the Nvidia control panel and restored all my settings for D3 to default and it's back to normal!

I saw it happen as well. Running an EVGA GTX650Ti 2GB SSC.
To find the culprit, I switched different settings off or on one at a time, turned out to be the ambient occlusion. Switching it off cured this behaviour. Any other setting does not cause this behaviour.
