Cheats in Diablo 3 are basically just ways to get more gold, items and experience more quickly. Especially in the end game the game really boils down to finding the best legendary gear possible and farming as much paragon levels and gold as possible. Cheats can either help by unlocking new possibilities or automating certain tasks in order to save you time. There are cheats that can be done manually, those are mostly exploits, and there are cheats that are software-based, such as hacks and farming bots. The purpose of cheating in D3 is mostly to save time, since there is literally no end to the farming you can do in Diablo 3 and the drop rates for some legendary items are so insanely low that faming for them manually seems like a task that is almost like a waste of time. Diablo III cheats are also used to avoid death on the higher difficulty levels in order to preserve characters for a long time.
Since PvP in Diablo 3 is not really a popular feature and is highly unbalanced; hacks are not as useful as in other games, such as shooters. D3 Hacks can display the whole map for you, allowing you to navigate more effectively. Hacks can also allow you to move faster, teleport small distances and walk through walls. All of these can be useful to some degree in PvE, but are generally not worth the risk one is taking by using them. You see, hacks, as opposed to bots, are injecting code into the game itself and can therefore easily be detected. If at some point in the future, the PvP mode of Diablo 3 will be balanced and become a lot more popular, then hacks will be a lot more useful. Also keep in mind that if you are in a group and people see you walking through walls of teleporting, then they are very likely to report you and you may get banned manually for cheating.
Much like Diablo and Diablo II, Diablo III is an action role-playing game with fast-paced real-time combat and an isometric graphics engine. The game utilizes classic dark fantasy elements and players assume the role of a heroic character charged with saving the world of Sanctuary from the forces of Hell. Many traditional elements of role-playing video games are present, such as choosing a character class, gaining experience and leveling up, and acquiring ever more powerful equipment.
The proprietary engine incorporates Blizzard's custom in-house physics, and features destructible environments with an in-game damage effect. The developers sought to make the game run on a wide range of systems without requiring DirectX 10. Diablo III uses a custom 3D game engine in order to present an overhead view to the player, in a somewhat similar way to the isometric view used in previous games in the series. Enemies utilize the 3D environment as well, in ways such as crawling up the side of a wall from below into the combat area.
The proprietary engine incorporates Blizzard's custom in-house physics, a change from the original usage of Havok's physics engine, and features destructible environments with an in-game damage effect.
On June 11, 2012, it was announced at the 2012 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference keynote that native retina display support would be coming to Diablo III. The following day, a Blizzard representative confirmed via the official Battle.net forums Apple's statement, the ongoing work by the developer on the optimization of the game engine for its rendering on the Retina display (and technically on other similar future high-density monitors) and that this optimization was mainly for aesthetic purposes.
Diablo 3 cheats are software that can be used to change values in the game. However, there are risks associated with using cheats. One risk is that the game will not be as challenging and fair as it is without cheats. Other risks include getting banned. There are three main types of cheats available for the game.
Diablo 3 cheats on PS4 are a great way to gain an advantage in the game. However, cheating is not encouraged and you must use them responsibly. You should only use cheats for your own benefit and should not share them with others. Doing so will expose the secrets of the game and can get you banned from the game.
I remember I got the artifact crashing thing in black ops cold war a while back as I remember. I never thought about it till now and I wonder if cold war uses easy anti cheat as well? So maybe this artifact crazy bug crash thing happens due to a similar anti cheat or utility they use for their games?!
Im actually amazed with how well my system ran MW2 at 1440p, pretty indicitive that it its the game and not software/hardware related. Something to do with how the engine renders/ stores information in RAM/VRAM. It has to be something fundamentally wrong with the game engine that they themselves have screwed up.
On some random stream I heard Apex pro say something like "...sound issues will never be "fixed" because it is just how the engine works and it is not quite suited for BR game..." I assume related to the fact that Unreal initially was FPS game 1v1 type of game not open map BR game, so it struggles with stuff that comes with open map.
TLDR: So have they modernized/updated it enough for those still on the fence or are you still waiting for more. Would you be opposed to it fully integrating with choices to make it more accessible? Maybe a short video or two explaining the story more in-game. A few more hint window pop-ups. I've come around to the idea that these games can be enjoyed more without alienating fans by just putting two options at the start menu with a game akin to say assassins creed levels of ease to the older demon souls level of ehh figure it out. As long as everyone's happy. Maybe a difficulty option if people wanted it or something like gold cheat in mario to just turn invisible vs a boss so you can figure out how to fight without getting 1 shotted.
To go even a little deeper into the psychology of this, let me say something else. One of the things I've always liked about video games as compared to, say, card games or board games, is that the rules are baked in, and barring actual hacking or glitching, you can't break them, and anything is allowed. With a card game or board game, even if you aren't trying to actively cheat, you can end up breaking the rules unintentionally just because you forgot how it was supposed to work; you have to hold the rules in your head just to make it work. But video games aren't like that. It's why in the QL for No Man's Sky (or maybe it was UPF or a playdate? idk) Vinny took his ship and tried to fly it into the engine of a big transport and kill himself, just to see if the game would let him. I want to poke and prod at the systems and take anything they'll give me. Doing otherwise feels like I'm just leaving money on the table, so to speak, and it hurts my experience as a result.
@atheistpreacher: There are still plenty of broken weapons in the game. You are welcome to now shift your focus onto the next broken "I win" button and respec accordingly to use it. If you are going to use the most OP broken build the game has to offer every time because otherwise you feel like you're cheating yourself out of a fully optimized experience then as you said, the whole thing is a foregone conclusion. Plenty of people will play the game normally and rely on those methods when they need to. You are describing a very "you" mentality that doesn't necessarily represent the psychology of every person out there. I've had that sword for ages and I've had the ability to respect and use it but I didn't because nothing so far has pushed me to the edge where I felt that I couldn't handle things playing a "middle ground" of fair. I love stomping over enemies but I do want some pushback and thats what I'm getting with the option of an "easy button" if I ever need it. Of course when it comes to Soul games the idea of fair is extremely volatile to begin with. A true fair playthrough would have you ignore 90% of the games mechanics in order to attain some sort of honor against lines of code.
See, that's the BS. All those idiots who say that summoning co-op companions is "cheating," and sorcery is cheating, etc etc etc. If it's in the game, it's allowed, period. That's why I'd like the tools the game gives me to be somewhat balanced. 2b1af7f3a8
