I just preordered the digi copy. works for me. i got it downloaded ready for install come the 15th.

also, i think i figured out why its stuttering.

Couple days ago i installed something, whether it was NERO, or another program, but it completely farked up my HDD boot time. Takes about 7 minutes to boot up completely, getting stuck after the login screen for about 5 of those minutes. I'm thinking i have a currupted boot sector on my HDD or something. Unfortunately, i dont have any system restore points. A reformat isnt something i really want to do.... but i may have to if the "check drive" command doesnt fix my shit lol.

No weapon animations in Diablo 3 makes it feel like a half ass game. As someone's been playing Blizzard games for a while, this might be the only game I'm not getting from them.

From the D3 bnet forums, it seems the beta is still super unoptimized. I'd wait until getting hands on an actual copy and maybe even wait until a few patches are in before buying a video card.

Did anyone here see the Monk spotlight video? The best part of the video is when the narrator says that the class can Dual Wield but then they show him attacking with his fists.

My friend is running with a ATI 6950 (latest driver) and it runs fantastic...no slow down, lag or stutter. If that's un-optimized I can't wait to see the better client in action.

there is no animation for dual wielding weapons. if dual wielding it always looks like you are beating on them with your fist.



Also, just a heads up - if you are doing a preinstall it takes 4-8 hours Smilie

Keep your eyes open for me on a 560 or better deal.
FYI I have a worse CPU than you do and with an Nvidia GTX 460 the game runs great; it's definitely your GPU that is holding you back.

Yes, this is why i thought it was funny and lame at the same time. Makes me feel like Blizzard rushed the game by leaving out animations.

Rushed?

Do you not realize how many times they delayed it?

Weapon animations are silly fluff that only a few people actually care about. They have no impact on the actual gameplay :p

Delaying the game has nothing to do with the issue. Blizzard has no plans to add weapon animations in any future patch after the release date. I could understand if they said that weapon animations would be released 4 months down the road but there are no plans for any weapon animations in any patch updates. Weapons are pure stats holder. That says a lot about how lazy their development team as grown towards making a great game.

Depends on who you ask. For me it does. For Blizzard, it only matters that the public assume that there are weapon animations. Take that trailer I showed you earlier as an example. In the trailer Blizzard claims that the monk class can Dual Wield giving you the illusion that the monk can hold and fight with two weapons, but in reality, you can't do anything with weapons. They basically faked a gaming mechanic to sucker you in.

I guess that's a difference between us - Monk can equip two weapons, so he can dual wield, even if it's just stat sticks.

The important attacks are the special moves, not your normal melee attacks, and having a monk using swords would go against the aesthetic. The other option would be Blizzard limiting the class to fist weapons only, which would suck Smilie
