The patch will be released on July 8th and it will fix a couple bugs, remove DRM and add 5 user made adventures.

Starting on the 8th of July, you’ll be able to download the next update for The Witcher, version 1.5.

The patch focuses mainly on removing troublesome DRM, allowing you to play the game without the disc, while providing additional hours of fun thanks to new adventures created by the fan community. Patch 1.5 is the next stage of The Witcher’s life, and is also a means of expressing our thanks to the modding community for their hard work ion creating the adventures. The update will also be included in forthcoming The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director’s Cut; more info on that product will be released shortly.

Patch 1.5 features:
Modifications: - copy securities (DRM) are removed
- playing the game no longer requires the game disc in the drive
- patch solves problems with EAX and blur

- 5 additional adventures made by the Witcher community: ‘Deceits’, ‘Blight of the Bogs’, ‘Wraiths of Quiet Hamlet’, ‘Wedding’, ‘Merry Witchmas’.

In order to install patch 1.5 correctly, you should have original Witcher game upgraded to 1.4 (enhanced edition).
Moreover, our website will be enriched with new graphic and music bonuses; also, a new section will appear, namely ‘Modifications’, which will enable you to download a mod to change the game’s difficulty level, created by Andrzej "Flash" Kwiatkowski. Gradually, new items will be issued there as well.

These guys are awesome. They've already supported their game more than most devs would, and they're still supporting it, despite having another game in the works.

Nice, maybe time for another playthrough w/o the disc.

that is what I call support

and will repeat again what CD Projekt said before: "Reward the players"

I've been tempted to grab a copy of the Enhanced Edition even though I already have the vanilla UK version.

Does the US Enhanced Edition have the censored stuff or are all the EE versions the same?

all US versions are censored.

you can "patch" it to where its uncensored though.
so the english version really is no less than the polish.

I bought it on Steam and patched it so now it's uncensored.

How the hell do you patch the steam version? Doesn't it break the game?

as long as you don't run the verify integrity test, you will be fine.

Did they censor any language in the US version?

Like when the drunks in the bar yell "Your mother sucks dwarf c**k!" :p

06-23-09, 11:51 PM
don't know, never played the censored version.

I think it was just sex removed in the US
Blood removed in the German.

Australian versions surprisingly untouched. Just the way I like it.

Thanks !!

Just finished my patch download as well. :) Can't wait to fire it up again.

07-08-09, 02:04 PM
Reinstalling, gonna try and actually finish the game this time. :p

07-08-09, 03:00 PM
Does this fubar save games?

07-08-09, 08:15 PM
Doubt it since the two patches you can already download seperately for many months now. Plus, the bulk of the size in the patch is from the free modules.

Taking out the DRM is good, too! :D

I wish they kept it. The whirring of my DVD drive keeps me company in the cold harsh world of The Witcher.

07-09-09, 02:19 AM
Is that a good thing? :D
