Apr 19, 2012Every time I see this kind of thread I'm still shocked at the lack of 30-somethings that respond. I'd thought more people had "grown up" with Diablo I (I was 14-15 when D1 was released). Guess I was wrong....Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
30 now by the way, and as someone else said back on page 1 or 2, hoping for a more mature community this time around.

Don't get the 550 Ti. If you really are gonna get a new card just get the GTX 460.
The 460 may be a bit cheaper/faster but the heat output vs. performance increase may not be worth it depending on what you have for a case. The 400 series is widely known for it's high heat to performance ratio, and from what I hear the 500 series runs significantly cooler.
I use Gigabyte's OC'ed version of the GTX 470 but I also use a big Full size Tower with plenty of space and airfow (Antec Tweve Hundred). Running WoW or D3 Beta I get temps around 70-80C (made some tweaks to get smoother FPS on D3 Beta) and neither game comes close to maxing out my GPU.
I would stick with the 550Ti.

Didn't seem to do the trick at all :/
Gnub have you tried to the re-install from Safe Mode w/ Networking? There were several occasions when this was the ONLY way I could get past the "Updating Setup FIles" bug.

I plan to in short,
1. Turn over every single rock and body in the game and open every chest.
2. Explore and observe every dungeon, cave, cellar, den and areas/towns
3. Listen to every single piece of lore
4. Enjoy the experience
I don't care if it takes me 3 months to hit inferno . But gl to all those who desire to be world first level 60.
^ what he said. I can't rush, I just HAVE TO KNOW what's in that corner! xD Definitely looking forward to lore. Diablo is actually the only Blizzard game that keeps me entertained lore-wise. It's not too complicated, has some decent twists, is dark, "gothy" "demonic", leaves many speculations and is generally good in driving the player through the game if you catch my drift. It borrows a lot of things from other religions, beliefs and myths - but Blizz was always good with borrowing great concepts and mixing them together in their own way.
I'm with you two. I intend to savor ... every .... moment!
Apr 10, 2012My current plan is to roll a HC Wizard along side my SC Wizard. So ... should HC die, I have something I can immediately fall back on to continue playing.Posted in: Hardcore Discussion
This is of course assuming I'll be able to stop playing on my SC just to re-run content in HC. Shall have to wait and see...
Apr 10, 2012I've thought about doing this. The zoom view is cool in the heat of battle, but I don't think I could deal with the loss of field of view.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Hmmm might gimme something to do with Patch 16 now that I don't have to worry about overachiever anymore (yeah, I know... doesn't matter... But .... as lame is this may sound, I wanna be able to say "Yeah, I did that.").
Apr 9, 2012Try rebooting the system into 'Safe Mode with Networking' (mash on F8 just before the windows logo comes up).Posted in: Technical Support
Run the launcher, it should update the tools. After that, the update will most likely freeze, if it does reboot back to normal mode.
Next time you run the launcher it should skip the 'Updating Tools' part and begin downloading the patch/update whatever it happens to be.
This is the only way I've ever been able to get by the "Stuck at 60% Updating Tools" issue.
Do you run a 64-bit OS? This seems to be a common trend.
EDIT: I would like to add that I personally have not had this issue since the last tools update (the one a few days ago, not patch 16). Not sure if they 'fixed' it or if my Windows finally 'just' started to let it work. Dunno...
Apr 9, 2012Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionAre U sure Siegebreaker is cut out? Because I thought they only cut those unique death aminations in siege -event, but still kept the event (and Siegebraker).
You may be right. I'm really not sure...
Apr 9, 2012Here's my main specs, I play at 1366x768 (old 26" TV is my display atm, my weakest link) with all graphics settings maxed. I've been having the micro-stuttering issue that tons of beta players have been reporting. Most of the time it runs silky smooth at a solid 60 fps (V-Sync turned On).Posted in: Technical Support

In reference to insta-death boss mechanics. Scripted events like the Siegebreaker were cut because they were overly complicated to program.
