So I was ready to play at midnight when the servers came up (although they were not actually playable for another four hours), and when I was finally able to log in the first thing I noticed was how every 3 sec or so while moving my character, my camera would just pause, as if a frame was trying to "catch up" to the rest.
I figured I would give it a couple days to weather the storm, so to speak, since the launch was a bit problematic and the servers were overloaded. To my great dissapointment, nearly a week later, the camera stutter still persists. I get this on two vastly different computers, no mattter what I change the in-game setting to.
I have been scouring these forums, and the EU forums as well since launch, unable to find any fixes that work for me. Some people claim to have fixed FPS issues, but please don't misunderstand. It is unlikely that this is graphics-related. My FPS is stable at 60 and does not change. It is the camera that stutters, as if its trying to load something.
Here is a list of the things I have tried on both computers...
-Reinstalled Windows (clean install)
-Updated all drivers including chipset, sound and video
-Tried beta drivers
-Tried every possible combination of in-game settings (including changing sound channels)
-Set processor affinity (someone else on these forums said it worked for them)
-Defragged my hard disks
-Ran as admin
-Reinstalled from digital download (originally installed from physical DVD)
-Disabled all non-essential startup items from selective startup
-Powercycled my modem and router
-Ran Memtest86 (came up clean)
-Ran CPU diagnostics (came up clean)
And still, the camera stutter persists.
I hope either Blizzard or someone on the forums is reading this and knows what is going on, because I'm out of ideas and its beyond frustrating. Diablo III appears to be a great game, and I would really like the ability to enjoy the game I've waited so long to play.
My tech specs for both computers are as follows...
GPU: Nvidia 460 GTX
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
CPU: Core2Quad Q6600@2.4GHz
GPU: Nvidia 250 GTS
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Also, here is a video of exactly what I'm seeing. The video is from the beta, but it is a very accurate representation of what I'm experiencing...
Thanks in advance,
