Hoping these'll fix the "ERR GFX D3D" GTA crashes as well...

Got around 100h of GTAV with 350.12 drivers on GTX980 clocked 1500/8000 and not a single crash the entire time, online and campaign.

That's great, but it doesn't help myself or the other people having the issue.


3 known solutions:

1. Overclock your card a little less;
2. Turn on Vsync;
3. Get Windows 8.1.

PS: You probably have me on ignore, so you will probably never see these solutions. Rolleyes

You still running Windows 7? I had this problem with my GTX 980 and had to tune down the overclocking a little. Now I have Windows 8.1, GTX 980 fully OC'ed and not a single crash anymore.

I've heard nobody say they can't deal with the graphics -- people are just pointing out it looks downgraded.

I'm unsure if these graphics are from maxed out graphic settings or just 5K settings. Hell, the footage you can watch right now from reviewers on the PS4 looks better than this so something is off with this source.

1) So you think they purposely downgraded the graphics for the release version only to re-upgrade them later? Sounds very unlikely to me. Judging from what I've seen so far the PC version is identical with the PS4 version except for the higher refresh rate.

2) I speak German and according to the article these screenshots were taken on a high-end PC with a heavily overclocked GTX Titan (non-X) at highest detail settings.

1. Some people commented here saying that they don't care much for the downgraded graphics as long as the gameplay is good. To me, it felt like they said it in a way as in to say the other people in this thread were saying something else. I merely felt like making clear that all the others were merely stating the obvious -- that it looks downgraded -- but that they weren't saying the couldn't deal with downgraded graphics.

2. That's pretty scary, then. But still, is the source reliable? How did they get their hands on the PC version? It isn't out yet and AFAIK CDProjekt didn't release any review builds of the PC version.

Here...

I don't think that was a reference to the event in this video. He is older now than when he got that bite. Unless I'm missing something in the timeline.


I think the devs just used old Geralt because it's still first and foremost a trailer for TW3. As mentioned earlier, the first book the game series is based on is The Last Wish, and in it he fights a bruxa like this. Everything that happened in it was prior to the game's timeline.

For The Witcher 1 they had a cinematic trailer of Geralt fighting a striga, which is the first battle in The Last Wish.

Well, this was amazing. Not sure it beats the Witcher 2 trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kCGw_64Osc

They made that trailer later, due to the complaints that people had no idea what was going on in the main story. For story telling purposes it was somehow really important to see/know that the assassin killed another king before he killed Foltest. Oh, and IMO this new trailer looks even better than TW2's. =)

Those are some nice pics and .gif videos in there. I got scared shitless so bad my dick nearly retracted into my body when I saw the .gif with the boat at sea -- it looked so horribly bad it's like I was watching some shite from 2002. I bet that's just the PS4 being the weak shit that it is but still... I hope that will look way better on PC!

Too bad they couldn't keep her hot throughout the whole fight. Had to go the whole "enemies have to look evil - for the kids - and we're afraid to dismember women because the combination of sex and violence gives us confused feelings" thing.

It makes sense from an evolutionary standpoint. They look sexy in passive mode so they can catch anyone off guard, and in combat mode they have to look intimidating and scary so that even the best of fighters is reconsidering flight during the fight. But I read between your lines: You just wanted to see a naked chick.

Blizzard comes with this shite? It looks like one of those F2P garbage FPS' nobldy really gives a shit about.

Also.. A robot monk? A spiritual robot shooting lightning bolts? My goodness.

Uninspired shit is what I was looking at for 1 minute until I got bored. People who are actually being excited: I will never get you; I never want to get you.

I wasn't accusing you or anyone in particular. I just expressed my overall disagreement to the fact that many think CD Projekt releases buggy and unstable games. I wasn't particularly democratic in my expression, and I do apologize for it. Tiny

Read any patchnotes from most games and there'll be showstoppers in them for some people. There's nothing new to that. Did I play both games at day-one? Yes. Did I run into showstoppers? No, except for the crazy long loading time between interiors in Vizima in The Witcher 1.

You don't get to act indignant, you got what you deserved for that rude shit. No one gives a fuck what you saw, other people obviously did have problems as you readily admit by acknowledging that many other people talk about it. No one asked you to care about their problems either. You chose to insert yourself like a wart with your rude ass whining comment because you're an over eager little beaver with video games that you like, you did the same shit with Dragon Age. Your experiences are not everyone elses, grow up and stop thinking the world revolves around you.

I like CD Projekt games but claiming they do not ship buggy games is a fucking joke and calling other people whiners for even discussing it is some fanboy bullshit. That's my opinion, I don't care what yours is since I'm the one deciding whether or not to buy the game. Maybe people would actually give a shit what you thought if you didn't call them whiners at every opportunity.

You're one aggresive, self-rightious fucker aren't you? I wasn't saying, at all, that everybody who complained about instable crappiness was talking out of their arse for the sake of whining. There's always people experiencing nasty shit with no matter what game -- always! -- and I feel shite for them because I'm one of them and I know how it feels.

I had zero remarkable issues with the games. Zero. No input lag, no optimization issues, no CTD's, nothing. NOTHING! Do I therefore put to question the idea that CD Projekt releases instable shite? Yes, I do, and I explained that it's because of the irony that CD Projekt actually shows an incredible amount of support that I think some people draw a wrong conclusion.

Sure, there were people who experienced gamebreaking bugs, but I dare bet on my penis that some gamers just moan along, exclaiming like a broken record how they will wait for the Enhanced Edition because CD Projekt releases oh so instable games, while all they had was a clipping error.

Go read the patch notes sometime, there were many show stoppers in both releases and I know because I played them and experienced several firsthand so fuck off with your 'whining' bullshit.

Reviews seem solid for the console versions but holding off for the PC, no review codes were sent out yet apparently.

Go fuck off yourself, kid. Read any patchnotes from most games and there'll be showstoppers in them for some people. There's nothing new to that. Did I play both games at day-one? Yes. Did I run into showstoppers? No, except for the crazy long loading time between interiors in Vizima in The Witcher 1. Yet CD Projekt has a name of releasing games instable or unfinished, and I say: "Fuck that." People maybe got that idea because of the unusual amount of support this developer delivers -- "Free enhanced editions? Oh! Then the games must've been unfinished shite at first!" Such a typical, poor fallacy.

Interesting. The biggest draw for meto the Witcher III is it's supposed open-world 'skyrimness'. Ive read that 8/10 review and apparently not all areas are accessible from the open world (not a problem) and you can't simply run off in your direction and do your own thing.

This last bit is kind of dissapointing. Then I read part of the review again. Apparently you CAN take on multiple quests but they "DONT SCALE" to your level. Which means that you can get your butt kicked if you wander off into the unknown. Wait what?

Since when is that a negative?? This is how oldschool RPGs did it, and they did allright, scaling is for pussies. Let me get some satisfaction from completing a much more difficult quest than should be possible for my level!!

Will still wait and see but Im optimistic about this game.

QFT!! Since when have we become such mindless zombies that we see the NOT SCALING of quests and enemies to your level a bad thing? Have we forgotten what it was like before TES? Gothic was a big success and mostly due to enemies not scaling to your level. The satisfaction and sense of achievement you felt when returning to enemies that bashed you into a loading screen earlier is awesome. It's also a way less lazy approach to designing a game -- its much harder to find the right balance etc. That the world does not scale to Geralt's level is the best thing I've read in any review so far. I find it horribly laughable that it was written as a negative thing.

As for the guy on the fence about Risen 3 (sorry I can't call you by your nickname but posting this to then edit it once I have your nickname is such a drag on a mobile phone) --> Get the game! The atmosphere is amazing; I love the graphics and gameplay; oh, and enemies don't scale to your level Add me on STEAM (Vince / theronyll) to read my more in depth little review on Risen 3!

I'm tottering on the edge of 'do I get it now' or 'do I wait'?

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.

Getting prejudiced has a certain level of sucking too, in my experience. There's something charming on jumping into a game with a blank slate of a mind. For example, I was loving the hell and heavens out of Risen 3 and imagined the internet going crazy with marvelous review scores but when I came back to the real world after hours of amazing awesomeness, most ppl were bitching incoherently. Another example is Shadows of Mordor. I was bored out of my wits 20 minutes in, yet the internet seemed to praise it.

I'll give TW3 an unprejudiced verdict of my own. Screw the net. If it burns me, I'll drink a few beers less next weekend if need be...

Ok, so back to the game. One of the reviews said their were definite bugs, but I was certainly expecting that, day one W2 was a little bugged with optimization issues (although they may have been playing one of those loaned review copies that isn't patched).

Other stuff mentioned (besides the gushing over the graphics which really isn't my main concern, but yeah the graphics are nice): the excellent story writing and character interactions continue, choices you picked up from the past two games are indeed also reflected in the third, inventory menu is a little better, combat seems more fluid, if you'd read or have been reading the books you'll basically feel like you're in a club since you'll 'get' the little references or recognize places/people and their history.

I don't know if any Europeans comment here, but I'm so jealous that you have all the books - two years is a while to wait for the rest in English :(. Maybe I should learn German, Polish, or Russian.

I'm European but I don't speak German, Polish or Russion either

As for the choices/consequences from the first two games... am I the only one who doesn't have the save files anymore? Who leaves games on their HHD/SSD for so many years? Anyway, for people like me.. check The Witcher Nexus. There's some very good save files their. It's also confronting when you realize the majority of players made the exact same choices as you and you're not so special xD Also.. I know the console versions have this little start-up sequence where they can choose what they chose in the earlier games since they cannot import save files. Why, if this is the case anyway, didn't they implement this for the PC version too? And if they did, do you have the source? =)

I don't ignore people. I think it's too insulting from one person to another to do this, especially because 9 out of 10 people here have posted ridiculous shite more than once but those same people have participated properly in this community even more.

Right now, however, after CJ_Parker tried to piss over us even more with his patronizing bullshit retort.. he's literally the first person EVER that I'm considering putting on that list. Motherfucker...

Edit/Add: However, I know for as certain as I can be that he knows he's gone too far and I think he knows this for a while now. Now he's stuck in this image he's created for himself, because his insecurity lets him from admitting this and trying to change. I feel sorry for him, and I will support him by putting neither him on ignore.

CJ_Parker, you must be mentally ill or seriously unhappy in life. You call a guy who's exclaiming happiness a dumbfuck. Get a fucking grip of yourself.

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.
