News Comments > The Witcher III Patched
26. Re: The Witcher III Patched May 26, 2015, 14:23 Darks
 
The new patch is nice, and its nice that you can finally remap most of the keys. but there are still keys that cant be rebound.

E key and the Shift key for instance for Running. and the Canter. I have no idea why they wont allow this key to be double mapped like some of the other can be. So I manually remapped them to use the same key and it works perfectly.

The issue I have is that Riding the Horse or when Swimming you cant re use keys for those specific instances. No idea why the Devs don't allow this. So again, I edited the .INI file to make them work like I need them.

If you all are needing to do the same, just go to the Documents folder\Witcher 3 and edit the input.setting.ini file

Mac is a douche bag and as usual he just doesn't get it. I agree with some of what hes complaining about like the controls. but the guy goes to far with his bitching and whining to the point where you just face-palm and turn off his review and move on.

It locks up on me far too often to be fun. I've got a pair of 970s, anyone else running SLI? The lockups always occur during cutscenes, right after the camera changes location. The last speech clip finishes playing, then silence. I can alt-tab and kill the process.

When it's NOT busy locking up, the game runs silky smooth, and actually strains the cards LESS than W2 (Witcher 2, with everything at max, is the only game to cause one of my cards to whine). Haven't had enough time with it to really decide one way or the other if I like it.

Things I've noticed:

The child version of Ciri has a weird-ass face.
The lack of strafing is annoying, but it hasn't gotten me killed yet.
I've been playing using a 360 controller, which seems to work fine.
The slowest horse movement speed has a hitch every time the animation cycles, stopping forward motion for a frame or two each time.

I'm assuming my lock-ups are SLI-related, which is something I've come to accept with a dual-card setup. Usually it gets sorted out within a couple weeks, or...6 months, in Far Cry 4's case. I was honestly shocked that GTAV exhibited zero weirdness with dual cards...my CPU holds that game back, and even then, it's only when driving at high speeds through downtown.

Not using SLI. I've found it to be to quirky at times for my taste.

Yes, I felt the same way about Ciri, she looked odd.

This is a big one for me, the lack of strafing drives me nuts. the whole moving in the game for short distances when trying to line up on a torch to light it or open something is just an odd terrible feel to the game.

I like the game, but the movement needs to be fixed. I've had no other issues with lockups or any crashing. so for me the games been very stable.

So CDPR gimped the game out of greed to tap into the console markets and in the end everyone loses regardless. And there seems to be a ton of stability issues for PC players to boot. I hear it crashes more than Crash Bandicoot crashing a party. Nice play, Shakespeare.


Game looks beautiful and runs fine for me Guitarist

Same here, haven't experienced any issues or crashing at all.

But anyone who has been around 10+ years in PC Gaming knows that while AMD has good hardware, they are NOTORIOUS for horrible drivers. Every time I have upgraded my GPU since the good old VOODOO days, this has played a factor into my purchase of NVIDIA cards, and why I will NOT purchase a AMD card.

Funny enough it was the opposite reason that I jumped from nvidia to amd back around when the 290 drivers were released. Because while their hardware was great, all their drivers did for nearly a year was crash, crash, crash, TDR, TDR, TDR all the while they tried blaming users for it. Until it came to light that it was their drivers causing the problems, because their cards ran so hot they dropped the voltage down to keep the gpu cooler. That caused serious instability, and then they fixed it for about 3 releases and all of a sudden the problem was back again.

Each to their own.
AMD I haven't had to many issues over the years. Maybe a hickup here and there. nVidia was a constant battle with drivers for me back in the day but I haven't been back to them in years because of it. Think it was 4400's and 6800's for me.

One day I might try nVidia out again but to this day AMD and its drivers have done me well over the years on all my cards. I even have the R290 which was notorious for issues.

Yes, you are talking ancient drivers. But ever since Nvidia bought out 3DFX and brought in their people. The 3DFX team fixed their drivers to what they are today.

I have no issues with the Nvidia drivers. they are really stable and always worked for me.

This, and what Verno said. This is exactly why I don't buy anything AMD.

I stick with what work well, Intel and NVidia. Neither have failed me over the years and will continue to do so. These complaints are nothing more then fan boys of AMD looking for someone to put the blame on because their systems are not working as they intended.

Comment embargo at Blues for Witcher Release thread.

What's with that?

(Witcher 3) They fucked up key bindings badly. Can't remap a bunch of keys, and movement keys aren't even listed. If you're not WASD, you don't exist.

But GTA5 is awesome.


Sure they do, its called AutoHotKey. the best remapping tool on the planet. I use it all the time when developers try to fuck us over.

BTW, I have a few hours into the game so far and its been great so far. My only real complaint would have to be that there is no strafing. this console crap for turning right left is bad. it makes you stutter step when trying to move around and potion yourself in front of an item.

I sometimes feel like I'm one of the few that really liked the last Doom. It was, however, one of the few games that was actually too long

I'm not excited by this reveal, because Doom doesn't trigger that nostalgia stuff that it does for others. To me, it's just a new FPS reveal and all I do is hope it'll be a good one.

Your not alone, I enjoyed it too. I especially enjoyed it playing with the mod for 2 players Coop.

I see they haven't graduated from the Doom 3 engine that makes everything look like clay.

I think you would be very wrong about the engine. this is their newer engine, Rage 4. Not the older one Doom 3 was created on.

I need a good reason to get back into this game. I keep going in for a moment and getting bored and leaving for months on end, lol.

Perhaps I'm not sure which direction to go after getting to the end game. Do you just do Rift runs? Is there anything else to do?

Thats really all there is to do, Trying to run Rifts so you can upgrade your gems.

You can run adventure mode, but the only reason to really do that is to get certain uniques that only drop from the bounty boxes and keys.

Nothing else really.

Whats the point? Why is there no PvP in this game? (Or at least hardcore dueling)

I tell you why, because you have a bunch of whinny asshats who are playing seasonal and are bitching about the Witch Dr. AKA Fear DR. and his CC abilities to lock down mobs so the party doesn't get wasted on insta-kills. but that the WD is doing is building out a n XP CC build and they are leveling up faster then everyone else. Which I could care less about but there are always those whinny little bitches who just cant leave well enough alone.

So basically, CC is going to get the big nerf hammer and screw over the game so doing higher G-rifts will now be even more impossible. Yea, Blizz says we are scaling down mob damage. but that wont change the fact that you cant control a mob and the party is going to get their asses handed to them on a platter now.

for those who don't know what the Permanent CC ability is that the WD can do, what he does is wears a specific helm and an off hand I believe, that allows the Mobs to get CC'd when hes in range of them by fearing them it locks the mob down so they don't run all over the place and spam their Arcane, or what ever abilities they use on the party. it helps you get control of the mob and kill them off quicker. it helps, but the higher end mobs because of the high damage they do still kicks the crap out of the melee classes.

My question would be to Blizz, why make all of these Unique items that allow you to CC mobs then screw it over? The same can be said about the other XP Gear like the Cains set. Its such Bullshit and Blizz just cant leave well enough alone.

Blizz likes playing their little game of heres your piece of candy, but your not allowed to eat it. An yes, many people are pissed about this CC change.

I'm waiting for at least a weeks worth of reviews and comments on the PC version before I get this. I'm so tired of getting burned with buggy releases.

That is very true for many companies, but CD Project is a company a wholeheartedly trust. They have never screwed over their customers.

But bugs are a forgone conclusion. I really wouldn't sweat it to much.

Me, I got my copy with my GTX 980 FLW, I'm already pre-loaded and ready to go. Cant wait!!

Before this announcement, there was no way to know whether CDProjekt was releasing the game 00:00 PT, ET, BT, UT, JT or CET. In other words, Frag4Fun had all the reasons to be excited by the news.

This^

No one knew this information was going to be released In fact it came as a surprise to me too when I read it.

Most people are not sitting around thinking about the date time line change from the EU to the US.
