Jul 13, 2012 STILL No fix for error 14009? I've had D3 since launch, and played for about 2 or 3 weeks before I called it quits due to the overwhelming amount of bugs present in the game. It's been months now, and there is still no fix for error 14009? Seriously?Raggzz0 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 Cant reinstall game Im trying to reinstall the game. I put the disk in and started and it just stays on updating setup files....can someone help please? any ideas would be appreciated.Sinned0 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 What is up with these lag spikes? Consistent, ongoing lag spikes, teleporting back, rubberbanding and the most recent and worse screen skipping. Seriously what is going on. I wouldnt say the game is unplayable right now, but as of recent its getting close. This certainly isn't on my end, its only happening in d3. I'm not going to sit here and yell "Fix your servers" like 90% of the others experiencing this and who probably don't know a damn thing about maintenance. But the fact remains that the game has been this unstable for this long since launch and its unacceptable. I just want to play the game I payed for. I like d3 a lot, and all these technical problems are really ruining it for me.Bouffy4 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Installed game has none of my data I factory reset my computer and installed Diablo 3 again and when I log in it shows none of my characters and says I have no real ID friends. When I log in to my other Blizzard games everything is fine on my friend list and when I sign into Diablo 3 on my friends computer all my characters show up. WTF, and how do I fix this?DixeyNormous1 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Error 3 after connecting to server. I'm able to get into the log in screen but then the checklist comes up and stops at Authenticating credentials. After a few minutes, Error 3 comes up and I am unable to play. This started right around 6 pm ESTChumpatizer2 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Can't get loader to work. I played last night, but its not working today. Last night I had to go CTRL+ALT+DELTE the Agent.exe *32 and the Blizzard launcher.exe *32 about 4 times and then somehow after the 4th time, it finally opened Diablo 3.exe (I think) and loaded me up to the game and the login screen. Now today im doing that and it's not even working. Did something get currupted? What can I delete that might work and redownload part of it, or do I need to delete the entire thing and then redownload the entire game? Thoughts. EYE TEE PLEASE HELP! :) ThanksSmash12 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Diablo 3 crashes my computer about 10 min in. Every time I start up D3 in the last 48 hours about 10 min or even less, or sometimes more in some cases my computer screen will just go black and my computer wont respond, so I have to shut down and restart. It's only been in D3, I've tried playing other games with success. What's all this about?BurningJoker9 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Patcher stuck @ 25% after changing language After the patch today I was looking thru my d3 options in game and I saw I had no language selected. So I choose English. It said the game will close and restart, I clicked ok. I launcher started up and downloaded 8mb worth and started to apply them It got to 712/746 and seemed to be stuck. I waited for 10-20 mins and then decided to close the launcher and restart it. This time it just tried to apply the files it failed last time. But the files still dont want to apply properly, they are stuck @ 0/34 [IMG][/IMG] I am using Win Xp sp3CRCSUX3 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Character combinations in public games lol When joining public games the character combinations are brutally bad. Once in a game I find myself with three other demon hunters and no tank which makes it almost impossible to play Diablo 3 on inferno difficulty. "Blizzard" if you read this please put a minimum of one barb/monk in each public game created. This might slow down the joining process but it is still faster then having to rejoin 5-10 times to the right combination of characters.Infinity4200 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 Bid on item: Jumped from 3100g to 210,000g Hi, I don't know if this was a bug/bot!hackz or I'm just really stupid. I saw a pair of boots on the auction house that were at 3100g. When I placed my bid, I just hit enter twice, because I'm naive didn't think the AH would automatically increase the bid by THAT MUCH. I look at the AH saying that I bid 210,000g for that item. Does this kind of drastic automatic increase happen often? I feel slightly violated, confused and sad... But at least I won the boots?Alrik2 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 Game will NOT work So I installed the game played it for a couple months then one day when I go to play it it would always say error or something and never work. So I uninstalled the game then when I went to reinstall it it won't work either!! It says "Failed to download a required installation file....." So wtf? Spend all this money on a game that will no longer work.Darknoss0 Jul 12, 2012
Jul 12, 2012 issue launching the game I have a reoccurring issue where as I start the game the load bar appears on the launcher that typically signifies that it is patching/updating. At this point it will jump quickly to "100% Launching...", the play button turns grey, and then nothing happens. The game never launches. I have tried shutting off my firewall and shutting off all background applications. I think I've also tried re-installing, though I might try this again with a complete uninstall. The odd thing is that sometimes it will launch without issue which makes me think that it might be a potential networking mishap. screen cap: Jul 12, 2012
Jul 12, 2012 Paypal not linking correctly I'm still getting the error that I have not set up a paypal account when I try to change the option when listing on the RMAH. I hadn't used my paypal account in years so I updated my credit card and I needed to verify my SSN but even after doing that I am still getting the same error on the AH. I've tried deleting it and readding the account but nothing works.Sincere6 Jul 12, 2012
Jul 12, 2012 AH items are disappearing Ok, second time in 2 days. I had 10 items in AH last night, logged in this morning, I only had 8 and nothing in completed nor were the items in my stash. So, today, I again had 10 items in AH, put two new items in there. Again, this afternoon, about 5 minutes ago, logged in, those 2 items are now gone, I am back to 8 items and there is nothing in completed. They weren't in there for much, but I'd like to know what is going on.Kinkiller2 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 All Characters have Vanished I went to log into Diablo III for the first time in a little over week, on a new computer and fresh install of Windows, and none of my characters are there. I have a 60 Monk, and some other characters I was just playing around with. I'm going to open a ticket but I know they did maintenance today and I'm unsure how common this is so I figured I'd see if I can get some answers her first.KlienKnopper2 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 Game crash followed by error 3006 Was on a hardcore character, though I was just goin to Pinnacle of Heaven so i'm pretty sure it's not even possible for me to have died. I can't get back on, though. Says error 3006 "There was a problem switching heroes" or something like that. What's happening? Edit: Back on now... Why would this have happened?VasHeR3 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 no information on ah downage - ??? OK, ah downtime that we arent aware of screws us for auctions. I stand to lose items to cheap !@# lowball bids that couldve and shoudlve spawned into bid-wars and good sales. This is crap, at least give us a heads up on when the ah is coming back so we can see what kind of loss were looking at and plan accordingly if theres to be more downtime.

Jul 12, 2012 Questions about the whole"Investment Vehicle" If I sell items for gold and collect gold and whatnot through my normal gameplay and use said gold to purchase anything, lets say a gem for argument sake and sell it on the RMAH is that illegal. Some people have been saying yes but that doesn't make any sense to me. Can I please get some form of answer as I'm not looking to get my account banned.Noger0 Jul 12, 2012

Jul 12, 2012 Lol@locking threads As if there isn't bigger fish to fry. I could have called the police to file a report last week when my window was bashed in my car was searched for valuables, but I would have been lol'd at because they would rather be investigating murders here in the Las Vegas metropolitan area. Good to know there is a hefty force of forum police trying to keep the community at bay while mid-day/mid-week maintenance has the fan club in an uproar.
