And Then I Missed Out on the Error 37 Party

Diablo III launch day!

However, I wasn’t going to stay up until midnight to play.  I am too old for that sort of thing.  But it sounds like I missed a shared experience.  When I checked Twitter this morning, Error 37 seemed to be the topic of the day.

One theory…

Blizzard’s response is to… well… hang in there and keep trying.

Error 37
We’re aware that some players are experiencing Error 37 when attempting to log in to Diablo III. This error indicates that the Diablo III server is full and is likely the result of high login traffic. If you receive this error message, please wait and try again.

Error 3005 and 3006
Along with Error 37, we’re also aware of players receiving Error 3005 and Error 3006. If you receive either of these messages while playing, please wait and try again.

Error 14009/315300
We’re still looking into these issues; however, a player workaround is available. If you are experiencing either of these issues and are using Windows, create a new user account with administration powers (http://www.wintuts.com/Manage-User-Accounts). From there, log into Diablo III.

Character Creation Issues
While most of the character creation issues have been resolved, it’s possible that if you attempted to create characters previously and did not log out, you may have actually maxed out your character list. If you are still receiving an error creating new characters, log out and log back in and then check your character list.

Hopefully all this will be cleared up by the time I am able to try logging in tonight.

If nothing else, this sure seems to be a sign of sales success.

Overwhelmed by success…

I just still wish that they had not ditched offline and LAN play.

And it seems that not everybody is getting error 37.

TorilMUD Adds The Tower of Kenjin

Some games just keep on going.

Originally live six years before EverQuest, TorilMUD just added another zone.

Somewhere in the southern Calimshan desert a mystery unfolds. Rumors spread like wildfires about an enormous ebon crystal tower (which not a soul can remember ever seeing, or hearing about for that matter) rising high into the skies, yet casting no shadow. Foreigners have been seen exploring the desert, all seeking to discover the mystery of The Tower of Kenjin.

In addition, some crash bugs that have been been keeping the game down lately have been addressed.

Diablo III – Installer Trouble Already


The installer is all downloaded automatically and doesn’t give me an option to download individual packages.

The suggested fix is to download the whole f-ing 7 gigabyte installer again.  That will take another 24 hours.

Wasn’t avoid a slow launch day download the reason I downloaded it in advance?

Edit: Okay, finding d3-0-9558-Win-final.MPQ file on my drive and deleting it got things moving again.  Or not.  It downloads a new copy and promptly puts up the same damn error.

Edit2: Deleting the file three times running appears to have convinced the installer I mean business and it has gone off and fetched a GOOD version of that file.  It has realized I am not to be trifled with!

Now the game tells me I need to update my video drivers.  Being unable to actually play the game at this point, I might as well.

D3 awaits

Okay, now I’ll just wait until tomorrow.
