What is the piratebay version?
Don't ask, he's got a time out for posting about that.
@Stoner-Pimp - Very interesting. Thanks for that info. I'll tweak the settings tonight then to the ones suggested by yourself as I always found it mildly irritating the way that small objects such as rocks change LOD close by and smaller items appear magically feet in front of Geralt (like Crysis used to) despite having the LOD setting at Far!!!
P.S. The screenshots are not taken from an identical spots so it's hard to see how much the tweaks really affect the LOD. It might have been a better idea to have taken a quicksave then loaded that to test each of the settings without moving Geralt at all.
Just tested the texture setting, i manually set it to the low 100 setting and my max memory usage on that are was 440mb and running around you could clearly see the textures charging from really blurry ones to the higher quality ones, with it set to 1000 my memory usage was 560mb (remember it is a small area) and no matter where i ran the textures were always the high quality ones, so the 1000 setting seems to be working.
I also tried the mesh at 8x the amount (9.6) and the lod change is so far away you can't even see it change and amazingly i noticed no FPS difference at all.
I'll certain be trying that mesh setting for sure. Does it prevent the pop up of small objects on the ground then as well?
Not really noticed that, let me go check (hopefully i have a save that is in a decent area).
No it doesn't :3eyes:, tested it using some ground rocks, no matter what the setting they draw in at the same distance, i'm gonna mess about with some of the other settings to see if it changes anything like that.
Thank you "but" Once I have installed the DLC, The Witcher Launcher wont allow me to install DLC... it says in the launcher "Error writing file. Retrying in 10 seconds"
Once you have manually installed the dlc's thats it done, you don't need to install anything via the launcher, just play the game.
Thats if i understood you correctly.
The exe patches the DLC in. Just play the game.
Steam version starts the launcher, even if you go directly from .exe
All .dlc and .dzip files are read that reside in the main (CookedPC) folder, even if you use the launcher there's no need to validate anything via the DLC menu.
(This is a known issue as covered on their website linked to earlier and will be corrected hopefully in time for next weeks update.)
the patch didn't do much for me either, let's say sometimes i see a increase of 4-5fps over the usual, the dlc's are great, and the difficulty hasn't been modified, normal is still challenging if you don't plan your attacks careful.
Dont know what 3dvision bug was fixed, but the performance is still poor for me with them installed. drops down to 40fps. without them installed constant 60fps
No patch for yet doh. Polish version.
"Cant read file" Error . Any idea why ?
Using polish patch.
Thanks Worked for me, I just copeid and pasted the configs into the user.ini
now all like before
I own Amnesia, Natural Selection2, Shattered Horizon, Witcher 2
All pc exclusive just to support our felows pc gamers..
I would like to recommend you guys Natural Selection 2 as it has released just a month ago and its PC exclusive.
Hey guys any of you having problems with the password recovery I still got no reply and I wanna try them pol language pack as I will use eng subs as I wanna see how it differs to English voice pack.
I also would like to get a mod that allows purchase of that spider boss I need its part to complete the quest.
Got my patch working , not sure how :S.
But now my Gpu stays at 100% constantly , before patch is was like 90-100%,
can see little improvment , really never noticed game below 40FPS, and thats with highest possible settings (uber off xD).
Why would you want a a 'bug' that makes installing 'certain-store-game-purchase-incentive-DLC' unavailable.
You're one of those people who hates value right?
Copy paste works fine for me, with patch 1.1 and the copy paste DLC trick I never had to go online to register my game, now that it what I call consumer friendly.
Also I gained AT LEAST 30% performance, and textures are as clar as ever me thinks Mklbride didn't realise that the settings reset to their auto settings after patching. Why not open the custom setting menu and have a peak.
God dammit dchalf, I've said 3 times in this thread alone and twice on the Witcher 2 forums I did, I even deleted my user config and redid them.
