REALLY?! And I always thought it was "produce what the consumer wants so that they buy it"

Do you really want a world full of the same things that work the same way? Yea I didn't think so.

Man, have I been wrong! I, for one, welcome (before this patch) not rebindable keys, a console UI, dumbed down graphics and will happily pay full price for that!

Keys not being rebindable sucks and if I was using the keyboard I'd have been annoyed too. I never once made mention of it. There has been more than a few games that I have not played or I just figured it out and adapted, when the keys were unbindable.
Already said my piece on the "console Ui. We know which category to put you in.

Dumbed down graphics? Seriously, are we back on that again? Stop trolling.

El Pit wrote on May 26, 2015, 15:56:
Or... I could just by a PS4, because as others put it "8bit is enough! It's about gameplay, so don't be a graphics whore!"

Then buy a PS4...so you can have a worse framerate, lower screen resolution, lower res textures and not have all the effects. Sounds like a great plan based on your complaints thus far! /facepalm

And yes it is about the gameplay. Which is fantastic. The graphics are also fantastic. Some idiots just want to troll, and you are famous for it. Surprised I haven't already put you on ignore.

I won't adapt and pay high prices for a product that wasn't adapted to pc gaming.

Thanks for confirming you haven't bought or played the game, troll.

I simply don't think people know what they are complaining about any more when it comes to Ui.

Every single type of Ui gets tagged as "consolized" now. Doesn't matter if it's grid, xbar, list, or a combination of all. People will complain.

Why do you need filters for inventory/crafting. You cant keep making potions etc you already have made. So why do you need to collect 10,000 herbs exactly? Loot only what you need. Keep a few, sell the rest. This is a huge improvement over W2 where you had to keep all sorts of shit you rarely use.

Fonts. Can't help you there. Displays fine on my monitor and tv and I have the Ui set to the smaller option.

Combat...Christ I wish people would learn how to play instead of flapping their yaps and whining. Every Witcher game he does extra moves while attacking. This is because when you level and skill up you can start to hit multiple targets around you. those extra moves you complain about now, hit mobs later.
I just don't get the complaints about combat. Shall we compare to the horribly shallow and unsatisfying combat of Skyrim thy requires ZERO skill?

No animations should not be interuptable. That's just stupid. Plain and simple. People swinging swords can't just stop mid motion. People diving and rolling can't just stop. you can control your roll movement, you can go in a straight line or curve it and change where you go.

Adapt to the game people. Stop expecting games to adapt to you.

There are definitely quests you will miss simply by exploring too early. Found this out in White Orchard with one of the Treasure Hunt quests. If you visit one camp before another then you won't get one of the quests. I imagine they have done stuff like this throughout.

I never once felt like I won any of my fights with skill, I never once aimed a sword blow or when fighting a group was able to execute a precise attack of one guy, block another and then maybe stun a third, it was not because I lacked the skill, it was because such moves are impossible in this game.

This is from his post in the thread on this video.

It just demonstrates how fucking stupid and idiotic he is. If he isn't winning fights due to skill...it is because of his lack of skill. Watching him fight is painful. He is awful at it and it's not due to the controls.

He can't defeat the Griffin on Easy and has to go back later after leveling up? Wow, just wow. I'm playing on the 2nd hardest difficulty and I'm always fighting stuff that is many levels higher than I am...and I win. Why? Because I don't suck and I use tactics and not just jump in flailing my sword around hoping for a hit. And I don't use the lock on target function.

Does that make you feel like a man? Belittling someone for liking something you do not?

You can't be taking that video seriously? He can't even pronounce Geralt properly.

HE sucks at the game and it's nothing to do with the controls. Watching him was painful.

Just give it up already. You can make anything competitive but that does not make it a sport. Poker is a game of skill but it's not a sport. Sitting around on your ass playing a game - no matter how competitively - is not now and never will be a sport. A sport by definition implies at least a modicum of physical activity. Just call it what it is, competitive gaming. How hard is that? Oh right, it's all about marketing and doesn't sound nearly as cool and hardcore. Rolleyes

Definitions for words mean whatever culture decides they mean and are adjusted all the time when it becomes commonplace. There is more than 1 definition and usage of the word Sport.

The word Sport really has morphed into having more of the same meaning as "competition", regardless of physical activity, largely due to these other meanings.

A ball has never been the requirement for something to be a sport, smart-arses, just look at golf.

Are you being sarcastic? If you are, LOL.

If you aren't...GOLF BALL, that's all.

This was a combo of Dark Messiah meets Dead Island. Simple fun.

The sharpness seems like more of a personal preference thing. Some people like the stark and gritty look as opposed to the smoother and slightly blurry. It just makes low quality assets pop-out more (in a bad way) to me. Particularly the foliage, of which there is a lot in this game...

I'll take another look. Where I was testing was just outside the Nilfgardian(sp?) fort standing on the beach with the small camp looking across water to trees. I'll have to check it in a foilage rich area.

So there was zero performance gain for me with this patch. Framerate was the same as I left it last night. 48-52fps with Hairworks on and SSAO instead of HBAO @ 1080.

I could only see a difference between the two if I took a screenshot and looked very carefully. HBAO is a 5fps hit for me.

After patch I turned Sharpness to max, saw no difference in fps or quality. Also changed Hairworks AA in the ini file to 4 from 8 and now I'm sitting at 51-55 fps. So I'm happy with that until they add more options.

Agreed! I was curious if there was an option to extend the time they're visible...but I haven't looked yet. I'm assuming not?

Might be buried in a settings file, but nothing in-game.

Gotta say the art direction is *gorgeous* at times. The first time I rode into the bog forest and the wind kicked up it made me shiver it looked and sounded so great.

I need to update my drivers but using old drivers I get pretty smooth performance in game and in dialogue i drop frames. It's weird.

I'm not a fan of Geralt's movement out of combat. I suspect a patch will fix that though.

Having lots of fun though.

I do wish there would be some sort of analog movement system so that he isn't just running everywhere, its kind of an odd omission considering how console centric many aspects of design are.

Brought this from the other thread to reply...

I miss that as well. I also found that tapping up and down on R stick to turn Geralt around is not as accurate as it was in W2. Sometimes he only turns part way, sometimes not at all.

Someone in another thread had ranted about not being able to do anything without standing still. This is simply not true. You can run over herbs or by crates etc and loot instantly by hitting the A button a few times as you pass over. Had no trouble gathering all the goodies on the Battlefield in short order, or running around gathering some herbs.

I do wish that instead of "Gather Ingredients" it showed the name of the plant. The only way to see the name of the plant before looting it is to open the map and place the cursor over it, then it tells you. But that takes way too long.

Loot messages are way too short as well.

Waiting on the "Fixed bug where we forgot to include strafing" update.

LOL, Ill second that one.

Hopefully a near future patch.

Not sure what the keyboard default is, but the B button allows you to dodge in ANY direction. This amounts to Strafing. While still leaving the left and right directions on the R stick to turn the character without turning the camera. Therefore L stick can freely move the camera, allowing you view combat from multiple angles and not just over the shoulder.

If you must "strafe" during combat, you can lock onto your opponents. As I said in W2, this is something that will get you killed in a hurry, so its best to learn how to play without locking on targets.

C:\GOG Games\The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\bin\config\base\rendering.ini

HairWorksAALevel=4

Change it from 8 to 4.

Hmm, my immediate test seemed to show about 5fps boost, but doing some additional tests and changing other settings...it doesn't seem to be working. I even tried moving the file out to get a new one, loaded the game, file wasn't made and the game still loaded.

One thing I couldn't do however is add this game to my Steam library as a non steam game so I could play it in my living room streaming it from my gaming pc.
Did anyone figured this out yet?

C:\GOG Games\The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt\bin\x64 is where the witcher3.exe is located.

First thing I did was add it to Steam, no problem. It doesn't show up in the list of selectable exe files though, you have to find it.

Just use shadowplay Krovven
No performance hit what so ever, or you can use fraps too it doesn't effect your performance unless you start recording, it will give you a fps counter.
Shadowplay is the best imo though and you already have it installed probably with the Nvidia driver

Check the Steam fps counter, does it give you the same result? I still haven't setup Shadowplay as I dont record my gaming. I will later, eventually, sometime...
