Diablo III Catch-All

Forgive my newbie ignorance... is there a GWJ Steam group specifically for Diablo III? Or just the regular GWJ Steam group? If there's a Diablo one, I'd love an invite... despite being a gamer for most of my 35 years, I've never played a Diablo. Any guidance (or mockery) will be most welcome.

Machine is ready for some Diablo carnage.. Have been waiting over 10 years for this...

New CPU cooler installed. Diablo installed. Time for dinner and then a bit of reading and a nap.

I haven't spotted the invite yet.

Yes. Since it isn't actually installed yet, all you need to do is delete the Diablo folder in which you downloaded the files to.

The email states:

"If you chose the correct directory only approximately 65MB will need to be downloaded to fix your install, otherwise you'll re-download the entire ~7.6GB"

From this I think I'll restore the folder from the Recycle Bin, download the new installer, and see if it does the 65MB fix. Hopefully, it will.

This sounds extremely suspicious to me. I hope you didn't click any links in any emails.

Your battle.net account may already be hacked.

I still need an invite to the steam group pretty please! There's a link to my account in my sig!

Edit: Thanks!

There was the one about the exiled nigerian prince, but everyone knows that ones a safe bet and good return on your investment!

I've decided to not play until I get a new job (moving across the country, blah, blah, blah). I don't know if I'm happy with his decision, but it'll probably be a reasonable goad.

I respect your self control. I'm going to make my decision tomorrow after I watch Day[9] stream footage all day.

Aw, Chumpy is drinking away the pain.

I could use a Steam group invite.

Just got done adding Diablo III to my non steam games library. Would it be a good idea for everyone to do that so we can still use the Steam overlay and post announcements and such?

I'm using this as the path

Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo III\Diablo III.exe" -launch
Start In: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo III\"

The only thing I'm not sure of, is if the agent will still update with patches this way. If you do it without the -launch the agent window pops up first, but I think it confuses the Steam overlay and causes it not to work correctly. With -launch the overlay works perfect.

Login worked on the third try (Europe), game runs smooth and stable.

Urge to kill rising!

This won't come as a surprise to anyone, but the Asian and European launches crushed the servers. Don't be surprised if it takes a few hours to log on when the US comes online in 7 hours.

Maybe I'll make it a drinking game.

Error 37.

Drink!

(I'll write you guys how that turns out from the hospital).

Invite to the Steam group please!

Hmmm... No shipping notices from Amazon yet despite having launch day arrival selected. Should I panic?

Mine shipped from Amazon at about 9 this morning.

But then... I preordered the day of Blizzcon. I'd hope I was pretty high on the list.

What is the status they show? I logged into amazon this morning and noticed that the credit card I used to pre-order last year is no longer valid (silly banks paranoid that the number may have been compromised) so I quickly changed it to the new number. Now it says "Shipping soon" but I am concerned that I won't get it until Wednesday.

Can I get added to the group? Name is Rainsmercy in Steam as well, though I am in the regular GWJ group already.

I've already gotten the UPS tracking number for my D3 CE from Amazon. On target for delivery tomorrow.

I also found a D3 Starter Edition link on my blizzard account, and downloaded and have successfully installed the full game. The opening cinematic is simply gorgeous!

Oh and the new D3 Authenticator is now available. I'm still using the original authenticator, so decided it's about time to upgrade before my old one dies.

I preordered my CE from Amazon in September. No shipping info yet, but it still says estimated delivery of tomorrow. I'm assuming that the system is just slow to update due to the sheer volume of preorders.

At least, I hope so... You better not screw me over Amazon!

"Shipping soon". I'm ok with it arriving on Wednesday since I bet the login queues are going to be absolutely hosed tomorrow.

Installed... waiting... sigh...

I've had my shipping notice mailed to me at as late as 10-11pm and gotten it next day on release day delivery stuff. I wouldn't worry.

Could they rent/borrow other servers to handle the launch day load?

What good is "The Cloud"[size=8]TM[/size] if we can't use it for our vi'dga games?

Gaming confession: I never played Diablo 1 or 2. I have played a ton of Diablo clones, however, so I imagine I will love Diablo 3.

Missed me.

Question: Are you guys getting error 33 if you can't log in yet or can you get to character creation and just not play?
