Diablo® III

"Disk asset loading" lag

Quote from a sticky:
Disk loading stutters: We’re working on the disk asset loading stutters as well. In an upcoming patch, some of the prefetching in the game is being changed which should help with the stuttering.

Is this still being worked on?
Because it's far from fixed, i have a death or a near death at almost every start of my runs due to loading game assets from disk.
I also have to start every hardcore run on softcore to preload effects, location etc. My friends also do this and they have even better computers than mine.

I dont really want to buy an SSD at this point and not sure it it'd even help much.

If you guys gave us an option to select which assets (or classes of assets) to preload at the start of the game, and which to load on the fly - it would be great. Really great. I hate dying due to the game being unresponsive.

Yea this problem seems to be forgotten. I've had the same problem since beta and they haven't even fixed it yet : /

I'm also dying at least 2-3 times the very first run before every asset is loaded. Due to this, I simply can't play hardcore.

Could you give an answer, please? Even "we passed information to devs" would be nice.

It seems that whats worse, the only work around that mitigated some of the stuttering for me has been nullified. Since the launcher is ALWAYS patching on every launch, the MPQ files HAVE to be present in the install folder during the patching process. Running the mpqs off of a highspeed USB drive was the ONLY method that alleviated but not removed the stuttering.

So here we are, the only fix that worked for me is worth nothing, and having had an itch to play after a long break (attributed partially to the fact that Blizzard had yet to post a sticky or even admit that this was an issue, after saying this issue had been resolved for launch) I come back to find that performance is even worse.

Awesome.

likely they arent working on it is my opinion. they only said they were to pacify the ppl flooding them with posts/tickets about poor performance.

like many other issues they just tossed it in the nearest waste basket and it will never be fixed.

odd, i never had any problems like that. my patcher just patched the files on the usb.
