Diablo® III

Resolution reverting back each login

Posts: 6,925
Every time I log in to Diablo 3 the game is in full screen. Even though I logged out in windowed mode. I don't know why this is. Because before the whole PTR thing came into existence this issue never happened. But it is still happening in 1.0.5 live.

But now I have to:
1. Open up the game app.
2. Change from full screen mode to windowed mode.
3. Quit the game app.
4. Edit the D3prefs.txt file to change the windowed mode resolution to what I want it to be. Then save and quit this.
5. Open up the game app again

Only then I can play. Why am I forced to do this everytime I want to play Diablo 3.

And btw you can't also change in game the windowed resolution for Starcraft 2 WoL.

Have tried deleting and having Diablo 3 rebuild the prefs.txt file and the cache. But this does not fix the issue.

This may be a permissions issue with the Application support folder.

Can you try this?
    1. Navigate to ~/Library/Application Support (your user library, not the system library)
    2. Right-click the Blizzard folder and select Get Info
    3. In the Info box, go to the Sharing & Permissions section and click on the lock and unlock it, entering your admin password when prompted.
    4. Make sure you have Read & Write permissions
    5. Click on the Burst icon (cog wheel) and select Apply to enclosed items
