This is what it says when I try to log in: Patch required

A new patch for Diablo III is available. The game will now close and apply the patch automatically. You will be able to continue playing after the patch has been applied.

Then when I hit OK it goes back to first window that says PLAY. Then when I hit play to log in it keeps saying the same thing over and over have now tried several times and nothing happens. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions I really don't want to have to re-install the game and loose all my stuff.

Could you try what's described in the following two articles please?



If the above doesn't resolve it, delete the Diablo III\Updates folder and these two files in the Diablo III folder: Diablo III.tfil and Diablo III.mfil

Try the game again after that.

Patches are obtained automatically by the game client if it sees you need one. By the way, you won't lose anything by reinstalling. All of your character and inventory are maintained on our servers, not your PC.

Try deleting the Diablo III\Updates folder and these two files in the Diablo III folder: Diablo III.mfil and Diablo III.tfil

Then try the game again.
