We have 2 blueposts of big importance for installing and playing the game next week.

    First is the need to delete some folders that are not deleted during the uninstall process of the Beta client.

    If you have installed the Diablo III beta at any point and intend to install Diablo III, please make sure that all Diablo III beta files are removed from your system prior to installing the full game.

    This includes the Battle.net folder, which can be found in the following locations:

    C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataBattle.net



    Once this folder and all other beta files are removed, simply run the installer again.

    More fixes after the break.

    Second is for issues with certain AMD Cards under Windows Vista and Windows 7. Why anyone would still use Windows XP or Vista and let alone with a DirectX 11 card is beyond my understanding. But there is now a hotfix for Windows Vista and Windows 7 users.

    We’ve recently become aware that playing Diablo III with the latest Catalyst 12.4 drivers for ATI cards may cause some visual artifacts for specific hardware configurations. This issue affects users of ATI Radeon HD 2400, 2600, 2900, 3400, 3600 and 4500 graphics cards under Windows Vista and Windows 7. ATI Radeon HD 4600, 4700, 4800, 5000, 6000 and 7000 series products are unaffected, as is Windows XP.

    ATI is aware and investigating. Until a solution can be provided we recommend those affected use the Catalyst 12.3 drivers.

    This issue has now been resolved in the AMD Catalyst 12.4a hotfix driver. Users of the ATI Radeon HD 2400, 2600, 2900, 3400, 3600 and 4500 graphics cards are the only AMD customers who need to download this hotfix driver.
