Diablo III "You have been removed from the game" error

Thursday 7 June 2012 at 14:08

Hi everybody.

Since the latest Blizzard's patch, Diablo III seems to crash and giving the error "You have been removed from the game"

This bug only exists on 64 bits operating system.

This issue has been reported on wine's bug tracker : and a hack has been written to work around it.

PlayOnLinux has integrated this patch. For those of you who have already installed Diablo III, no need to reinstall it from scratch. Just set wine 1.5.5-DiabloIII_v3 to your virtual drive.

Note: Please do not report bug to wine with this version (and patched versions in general)

Note 2: You no longer need to run PlayOnLinux with setarch with this version!

Diablo III installers updated (AMD users who had problems are concerned)!

Hi everybody!

We have made two small update to Diablo III installers
  • Problem that made the system freeze on ATI card after login should be fixed!
  • Installer support DVD-ROM version
If you don't want to reinstall Diablo III to fix the problem, please set wine 1.5.5-DiabloIII_v2 to Diablo III's virtual drive

Ubuntu 12.04 users who are not able to connect (error 3007) still have to run the following command before playing

echo 0|sudo tee /proc/sys/kernel/yama/ptrace_scope[/code]

Lag problems should be fixed soon

Hi everybody!

After wine and DOSBox, PlayOnLinux now support natively ScummVM based games! You don't have anything to download or to install to take advantage of this new feature, PlayOnLinux and PlayOnMac will do everything for you :-)

For the moment, three games are supported thanks to petchema
More game should be supported quickly, including Gobliins 3, Indiana Jones and the Fates of Atlantis, and maybe many games

A big thank to team for this hard work
