    Poland has a law about contracts becoming invalid if something blows up huge like the Witcher. This was the basis of the author's claims, and maybe the reason they settled.

    The "media" presented this whole thing as the author being an idiot and making demands he's not entitled to. They didn't mention Polish law at all, of course. This is because the "media" are run by liars and/or incompetent, self-proclaimed "journalists."

    Can't expect people to know polish law. Or accept nonsensical laws as sense making.

    That's why I said "self-proclaimed journalists." They play "journalist" like little kids play astronaut. They don't know much but they pretend they do. They also aren't investigating anything. They just parrot what they read on reddit. "Journalists" my a$$.

    You should really finish the game. One of the best out there.

    Having Doug Cockle (Geralt's voice actor) narrate it, and having him say the word "meme", brought that clip over 9000 on the awesome level scale. :D

    Since the game's back on the first page of this forum thought I'd ask if files in the HD Reworked mod are unpacked is it easy to locate the water reflection files or lines?

    Welp I know that may sound randomly super specific but if anyone's installed the latest version of HD Reworked you've probably seen it messes up some of the reflections on the water in streams and rivers. So I'm trying to see if I can DIY removal of the water reflection lines and repack the appropriate files. This would hopefully keep the vanilla water reflections while letting the mod's nice HD textures show up everywhere else.

    They're probably named with water, but if not you could always uncook the mod Aqua and see what textures it modifies and use that info to find the correct ones in HD Reworked.

    well i gotta go for another run. im installing TW3 tonight, might be my last run
    since Cyberpunk is not so far away.

    quick question : any recommended interesting builds ? i never used signs\potions.. always
    went for full time whirlwind\slash build and simply tore everything apart with my sword. lol.

    I always invest a lot of points in the Quen, and Aard sign. I think they're both really good when you're facing a lot of enemies.

    yeah, i might go for a hybrid build with some signs but the core itself will still be sword\combat.

    anyway.. im taking my time with this play-through and i wanted to give some small tips in the gameplay section that i only discovered
    lately..

    - make the HUD small, unless you are playing on a TV screen.
    - use Alternative movement. i discovered it only lately.. it makes the standard option irrelevant the way i see it.
    - disable Action Log
    - disable Path to Objective on minimap
    - play on Death March ( if you already finished it at least once ). this is a MUST in my opinion. makes everything more real.

    so im really really enjoying it again, im very early at the Baron part and i intent to open the entire maps
    and do everything the world allows.

    these few things i tweaked improves the general feeling even if im just riding Roach and admiring the view.

    :)

    Ooof. I thought that mod was already quite nice as it is.

    Speaking of The Witcher 3 in 2019, I started a new playthrough this year. Got distracted by some other games, but here are some screenshots after going HAM on mods and taking in the sights from time to time. Holds up nicely I think.

    The HD reworked mod is very impressive. I'm on my 5th play and it looks so good!

    Honestly, I already thought it was a good looking game vanilla... but these screenshots, very nice. I probably wasted too much time only taking pictures of the great landscape :D
