The Witcher Demo

The Witcher Website now offers downloads of a playable demo for The Witcher, CD Projekt's recently released action/RPG, though word is "Links currently don't work for people in United States - the appropriate ones will be given as soon as possible." To that end, manual downloads are available from ComputerGames.ro, FanGaming, FileFront, FilePlanet (registration required), Gamer's Hell, and PixelRage. The demo is accompanied by this blurb: "We encourage anyone who’s been on the fence about the game to check out the demo and to begin their adventures in the world of The Witcher."

14. Re: loading times Dec 14, 2007, 14:11 DarkCntry
 
Yea, I will admit the loading is annoying...but that is the only drawback that I really find that way because of the leaving/entering places have to trigger a load, and if it is an important story-moving area, you then have to deal with the auto-save adding time. At least that on my system, loading is ~10 seconds overall, so it's not a huge problem like in a few other games.

As for the crashing, yea, the 1.2 patch hopefully will fix it, but in the interim I found that to alleviate a lot of it is to remove the extra auto-saves and leaving at max two in there. Even in the Quarter I don't crash after applying that workaround, but with the fact there being lots of loading and eventual auto-saving in there, it becomes a tedious workaround.
