    It was worked on for 2 years, and there are no RT settings? It was worked on, 1.9 years before 4000 series came out and only happens to run 60+ fps at all times with Frame Generation enabled? Cmon.

    Maybe the patch itself was worked on for 2 years, which is an obscenely long amount of time mind you (like almost exponentially more than realistic)... regardless of anything they clearly slapped on RT.

    It was a low priority project that was initially meant to be entirely outsourced to Saber interactive, just like the Switch port was. It was only taken away from them since bulk of their studios was in Russia/Belarus so with the war going on, the relationship became obviously unsustainable.

    It runs 60 FPS with FG on since it's primarily CPU bound and on any RT capable hardware likely won't drop below 40 so with what FG is, it will just hover about 60 mark but that's no conspiracy theory. The implementation is bad but it's no conspiracy theory, more than likely the console versions were again the main reason to push out this upgrade and perhaps December was an absolute deadline due to whatever reason (likely holiday sales).

    It's just bad and i wouldn't exactly put nvidia tinfoil hat onto it, since even on a 4090 the experience can be quite lackluster with all of the stutters, uneven performance and severe CPU bottlenecks in novigrad.

    something new to me.

    my daughter ( 3 months old ) goes to sleep with the skellige music. im not sure if it's a "deep" sleep yet but once that lady start to sing in the background
    she is sleepy as hell.

    But not you? I remember I was sleeping in all possible positions and places (even standing in subway train) with freshly baked kids...

    il be honest - she has a solid\stable night sleep ( around 8 hours ). i know from friends\family that some newborns are waking up at night more often, not the case for us :)
    she is much more awake and demands attention and activity at daylight.

    anyways i am starting to expose her to - Skyrim, Witcher, Mass Effect, Deus ex.. every OST that is on my list for years.

    right now it seems she is affected by the Witcher 3 OST the most.. she loves it, and falls a sleep with skellige :D

    One day, there won't be any difference between the two.

    Does Full Screen look any better in IQ than in Borderless Window? I'm not sure I can tell much difference.
    Edit: Never mind, I rechecked Kaer and the lighting in the atmospheric clouds is better in Full Screen, as well as most all the lighting looks better with more contrast too. I guess Full Screen uses more "resources" to pull a word from a web search addressing my question.

    Talk about placebo.

    The difference is how it is handled by the driver and windows. Exclusive fullscreen typically runs better, but it looks EXACTLY the same.

    I believe if you have a monitor color profile active in Windows, it will be ignored in exclusive fullscreen, but it is still applied in borderless windowed.

    It can depend on game, as I take it, not on the mode...

    I only just learned about this Stash and was just wondering... can it be accessed at other locations throughout the world, or is the one stash only accessible from that one location of the Stash?

    It's RE styled stash, it's a single instance shared between all of the green stash points on the world.

    Technically it's just a different tab in player inventory so it's still all in your pockets.
