May 10, 2012I ripped all the music from the Diablo 3 beta .mpq 's and converted them to 192kbps.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
If anyone's interested I can share a ZIP of all the music. There's about 1h45m worth of music just in the beta alone!
No comment from mods after a day or so - if you don't want this on here just edit/delete my post.
Here's the download: http://is.gd/HwwTLC Enjoy!
May 10, 2012Man, I'm going to be totally honest here because I think a dash of honesty might open some eyes. I find it totally disheartening and pretty depressing how so many people are dishing out personal attacks and insults towards people who aren't happy with the whole FoS/sigil thing. This kind of crap really reminds me why I rarely post on forums.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Seriously, I want to have some real discussion but nearly every response I receive is some kind of insult or attack. I don't see why I'll ever post here again when this is the way people are treated here. I'm here to have a discussion - whether right or wrong, whether we agree or not. I didn't come here to have people tell me I'm "mentally deficient" or to "get the stick out of my ass" or "stop bitching like a 5 year old for christ's sake". What an unbelievably worthless excuse for a "discussion".
Edit: I'm not even exaggerating, I'm now going to bed in a totally shitty mood because I thought I'd have some genuine debate/discussion about this issue but all I got was a bunch of people totally shitting on me and plenty of others. Thanks, I really appreciate it.
Jul 7, 2008Hey guys,Posted in: Diablo Wallpaper and OS Art
I whipped up this wallpaper which almost looks as if it's a legit Diablo 3 wallpaper from Blizzard.
I ripped the graphics from the Diablo 3 website (specially the "World" section), and then used Flash to grab a decent quality version of the Diablo logo, which I added in with Photoshop. Simple, but I think it looks awesome. Good thing Blizzard has such ultra nice site designs, eh?
1600x1200 size. It's the only size I made, because the source images from the Diablo 3 site were 1600px wide - this way there's no notable loss of quality. Let me know if you need a resize (anything smaller), and I can scale it down or crop as needed.
If you want to include this on your own website, at least send me a note at necro2607 at gmaildotcom. Thanks in advance for anyone who wants to feature it on their fansite. Hope you like!

Actually, one funny thing this wallpaper shows to you - notice how the world sphere is slightly off-center? I kept thinking I had the logo misaligned but it's just that Blizzard got the planet image off-center. The stuff above and below is nicely centered at the 800px mark. hehe, guess they didn't expect such critiquing of their webpage background....

Jun 12, 2012I was so excited when Diablo 3 launched. I even had a LAN party with 25 people all to play opening night. Well, needless to say that was pointless as the game didn't even work. That weekend I tried again and had about 17 people show up. This time we actually got to play. You know that game I paid 60 dollars for. I got to play it!Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Now from the broken game play to the completely stupid game change designs they have been announcing I am the only one left out of the 25 still playing.
Now I read that they are increasing the amount of money it will cost to repair 4 or 6 times over.
Here's a pro tip Blizzard. How about you fix your ****ing game and maybe we won't die so much? I do not care how much resist or DR you have in inferno. There are some elites or rares you can not beat. Short of god mode and death zerging.
Next I here there was a gold dupe exploit. Nice blizzard, really nice. Why would the gold farming companies even need to use bots when they can just invent gold out of thin air? And you wonder why I can't survive in act 2 inferno because all the good gear cost 4m+
Then I see the disrespect towards your fans when they tell you they are honestly pissed off and you basically brush it aside like its a single person. Let me tell you its not just one person, it's not two or three. I have yet to talk to a person that doesn't think you screwed this game up horribly. It's so bad they can't even defend you. Most of these guys are hard core blizzard fans also.
It seems like the design team is basically grasping for straws to try and salvage this game.
In the end if you have any respect for Diablo as a franchise. You will issue everyone a refund and destroy this game. Rehire Blizzard North staff and make it right.
I really hope someone from Blizzard with power reads this but unlikely... Anyways, I am moving on. This game is just .... crap and there are other better things to play. Never though I would ever say that.
P.S. can I get a refund on my Authenticator and my D3 T-Shirt?
May 20, 2012Our group of 3 people killed diablo in hell on hardcore tonigth.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
We did it on europe server.
Dev - monk
Arne - barb
Chris - demon hunter
We frapsed it, and here is link:
May 16, 2012I still can't comprehend how Blizzard has so many people convinced that their failures and mistakes are not actually their own fault. Then those people get all pissy at those of us who see through it and actually expected them to do the job right. THAT is some talent in the brainwashing department if I don't say so myself. My job would be so much easier if I could learn a bit of that! Where do I sign up?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
May 16, 2012So I've taken the day of work to play D3 and have spent the afternoon just looking at a login screen with errors.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I don't care about Blizzards technical issues, thats not my problem. They are a company like any other, selling a product that I have purchased that so far doesn't work. They have chosen to make a game that requires internet and server access even for a single player experience. I have no issues with technical issues when I'm trying to play online multiplayer but this... is just ludicrous.
I have a wife, young daughter and a demanding job and my time is very precious and for this reason I have actually taken time off work to play D3 as I have very little time to do it in my day to day life. I don't want to go for a walk, get something to eat or chill out. I had taken time of work, using holiday pay and causing more work to go back to tomorrow for nothing.
In about 30 minutes It'll be time to go and pick up my daughter, put on some dinner and then it'll be back to daily grind tomorrow and trying to squeeze in an hour each night of free time to play D3... thats if its working of course.
May 12, 2012mugfubawumpus posted a message on Blizzard wins "Privacy Invasion Award" from the EFFPosted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)Quote from Rawrgrablle
I think all of the things they monitor are completely justified to ensure a safe/pleasant gaming environment for everyone. In-game chat is not the place to be discussing highly private topics, so they're not wrong for monitoring that.
I think the vast majority of it is unjustified.

"I've cleared the whole game over and over again with 1200% magic find. Then you just walk in and get a godly item on your first trip through inferno! Why should you get a godly item?!?!?! I've been a bigger fan! I've played more! I had more magic find!!!! Why you?!"
Luck. It's a part of the franchise.
This is not even comparable.
In both of your examples, both players had the ability to try. The problem is with Blizzard giving rewards to the people THEY selected in the first place. Personally, I believe being selected to participate is just reward by itself, but to further aggravate loyal fans who would love the chance to be picked but weren't, by making it absolutely impossible to reap the same rewards, somehow, is absurb. Everyone who has played Diablo 2 to some extent knows how random MF'ing can be, that's the point. However, everyone has the ability to keep running stuff and increasing their chances through more attempts. Eventually they will be rewarded with good drops. It will happen in time. Rewarding people who were selected by Blizzard to participate is not analogous to your example because the ones who weren't selected had absolutely no definite control over their chances to play the beta.
Personally, I don't care. The FoS is worthless and people that actually care about them will ignore it because they know it was completely luck based. The sigil is the worst offense, but I really could care less about what someone's stupid banner looks like, because I will never be looking at them anyways. I just think it's a dumb move by Blizzard because beta testers were expecting nothing and doing this just infuriated a large chunk of their player-base.
May 10, 2012***Condensed wall of text*** (It was a TLDPR - Too Long Didn't Proofread and even I was bored by my own blabbering lol)Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
It's ok for those who didn't get in, to be bothered by it. Every single one of us on these boards is different. We think differently, we process things differently and we act/react differently. What is or is not a big deal is totally relative/subjective. As a husband and father my perspective concerning what is or isn't important has changed radically compared to where I was at even 10 years ago and I recognize that growth in myself for which I'm grateful. That said, I can't say for certain that 20 years ago I wouldn't have been upset over what many of you see as a slight for not being chosen to participate in the Beta and therefore I don't judge you. I was lucky enough to get into the Beta but I also know myself well enough at this point to know that I certainly wouldn't care about not getting this FoS had I not been "chosen". I truly do believe that once the game goes live and we are fighting back the hordes of hell, that this "issue" will quickly become a non issue (as it already is for many of us) and will be forgotten by a good % of those that currently do care.
May 10, 2012Here's an article that talks about the sound team behind Diablo.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
It discusses their approach to Diablo 3, to tools being used to create the sound/music, and many more factors that influenced the way they created the music and sound throughout the game!
Enjoy the read! It also has some sample tracks for us to hear!
