Considering the developers have actually said that they're working on porting it to consoles, I would say she is correct.

Yeah, I wasn't saying it's not true. I just rolledeyes at the thought of consoles running this game.

Well it should be OK, I mean it's like Mass Effect in that regard. It might bore console owner though because it doesn't throw a mass of enemies at you.

The combat requires timing and precision rather than just going all in like Gothic 4 and fighting with ease.

I thought it was good but I don't think hardcore RPG fans would. It's just too easy and the combat is easy. It's nowhere near as hard as The Witcher 2. The main thing I like about Gothic 4 is the more open environment, The Witcher 2 runs much better and has much better voice acting.

Just looked up some reviews on it. Sucks it has such bad voice acting. It still looks worth checking out though, thanks for the input!



New Witcher 2 AMD drivers soon

Dramatically reduces the performance impact, but also offers a bit less quality.
But it“s unplayable with 2x2 here, while 2x1 runs fine, and looks better then without, specially on vegitation.
Think its mainly near vertical edges that gets left out.

Thanks for the advice.


I tried it out and it worked. You do see some difference with 2x2, but it still looks great and like you said it looks better than without. The game feels a lot more responsive.


Thanks again. And yeah, you notice it most with vertical edges but the image is still pretty smooth.

Should have convinced him to surrender.

You get something nice later on in the prologue if you do.

so the game has proper 3 monitor support?

a guy at our office runs a 3 monitor setup and pretty much, if a game doesn't support it, he buys the console version.

Patch 1.1 will be out today
Quote:
Patch 1.1 is coming soon! Most issues will be SOLVED!
May 25, 2011, 2:53 p.m.

Internal tests of Patch 1.1 are well under way. Our current target is to release it this evening. Please note that although we are doing our best to have it ready by then, the time still may change in order to be completely sure that the patch will function properly. This is our primary concern since there are significant changes and upgrades that will affect many users.

1. Simpler and more reliable game installation and activation. Details to be revealed soon.

2. Fixed the free Troll Trouble DLC download. It is now included n the patch so there's no need to download and install it separately.

3. Fixed an issue that prevented some users from downloading other free DLCs (the ones given out with some pre-orders, special promotions, etc). The launcher now properly refreshes the list of available DLCs and allows for installation.

4. Performance improvements: approximately 5% to 30% better framerate and faster game loading for many users, depending on their individual systems and game versions. Owners of retail versions can expect the biggest improvements.

5. Fixed random crashes occurring on some systems, especially after saving and loading saves.

6. Key mapping – allows the arrow and number keys to be used for movement.

7. Added the option to invert the mouse.

8. nVidia surround vision now works properly.

9. More accurate assessment provided by the "auto-detect settings" option will help improve game performance.

10. Removed a bug that prevented completion of the “Blood Curse” quest.

11. Fixed a bug that prevented the additional link in "Extras" from being unlocked after winning the dice game against the GOG.com monk.

12. GOG.com credits now work properly.

The full list of all changes will be available upon the release of the patch. If you have experienced any issues that are not on the list above, please don't worry. We have already started working on the next patch, which will address other difficulties and bugs, including those related to specific hardware setups; e.g.. Logitech g35. You may expect this second patch to be ready next week.

Patch 1.1 will be available for all the versions of the game, both retail and digital, except for Russian. However, we would like to assure our Russian fans that we are aware of the problems with the your version of the game (thanks for your reports!) and we are talking with 1C about possible solutions.
