Enhanced Edition Patch for The Witcher

The Witcher Website now offers the promised updates for original copies of The Witcher to add the content from the newly released The Witcher Enhanced Edition. This takes the form of three different downloads, a 1 GB patch, a 500 MB language pack, as well as an optional bonus pack that weighs in at about 1.2 GB. They have posted an set of instructions on how to install the update and a The Witcher update FAQ in case any of this raises questions. The update is freely available, and is intended for those who have registered their copy of the game, but with the site getting pounded, they're allowing mirrors, the patch is mirrored on AtomicGamer, FanGaming, FileShack, and Gamer's Hell; and the English language patch is mirrored on AtomicGamer, FanGaming, FileShack, and Gamer's Hell.

I got it from a mirror (as well as many others) and they also said to use a download manager, as it can't be resumed.

SO no one really to blame but those who didn't follow directions.

The cause of all these evils was the lust for power arising from greed and ambition; and from these passions proceeded the violence of parties once engaged in contention.

I got so p***ed off with how long it took to download (most of friday when their servers we crap and no-one had mirrored it)a non-corrupt version of this patch and how long I have spent trying and failing to install it I threw the whole game in the bin and freed up some disc space. There is something wrong with this patch, something wrong with the 0.9GB executable. Loads of people have had problems. The patch was inadequately tested and support from CDProjekt has been non-existant - not even a checksum to verify you have a good download.

I had zero trouble. Downloaded the patch and the english pack into the same directory and ran install.

I have the import uncensored version.

Took about 45 minutes to install. (the patch to the original release - EE is in the mail.)

Playing the first part of the game - very fun - takes some getting used to. I am enjoying it. Great intro, great cut scenes, nice bewbs.

Hope you previous owners of the European version have success with patching. I prolly should have tried uninstall/reinstall and then patch, but I went out and bought the EE version in store.

The patch posted on Friday doesn't seem to work on the uncensored European version of the game. I tried it from both the Fileplanet download as well as the download from the CDProjekt's website. All I get is 'CatastrophicError' when it tries to update the local key file (and I am registered). If anyone had the uncensored European version and got the patch to work, please let me know.

Trying it now - will let you know.

/edit: Taking a VERY LONG TIME to patch. Been over 30 minutes, and it says, "Can take up to two hours".

CD Projekt is my favorite company! They also announced today native Paypal support for GOG.

That is the most dangerous thing in the world....

Also dropped some scratch on EE. Now I am the proud owner of the original uncensored and the EE uncensored.

Those of you purchasing the EE edition I just have to give you all Uber props man. You guys are supporting a great developer & this is the kind of stuff we need more of.

I own th original and loved it but I also bought the EE version just to give these guys some more bucks. I support great devs with my wallet and these guys are great.

Cant wait to play back thru the game but Ive been playing clear skies so it may have to wait a few more days.

I had never picked up The Witcher last year (came very close a couple of times w/ gogamer sales), and once I heard about the EE patch, I just chose to wait.

Sure, I could have just bought the regular edition now for cheaper and patched it, but I really like soundtrack cds, and I like the idea of getting a totally patched version.

The fact that the dvd is listed (on their web site) as 180 minutes is also very cool - I like that sort of stuff, and a lot of those "making of" dvds tend to end up being 20-30 minute overviews that don't cover much (Bioshock being an example).

So it's a win-win for everyone.

Much shorter loading times, streamlined gameplay, better inventory management, no need for the disc to be in... yup, they've done a good job.

PC Gaming goodness is at an all time high... at least for me. We have several great releases just out and several due next month. I'm downloading the patches now but will most likely sit on them for a while. Plus I plan on ordering a EE Import from GoGamer. Some nice goodies in the box and it goes to a great cause.

These guys should have a press release about their next project soon, I hope.

I didn't even realize that CJ Projekt was responsible for GOG! I bought two games on the day of the beta launch. Man, CD Project is super-mega-awesome. I'm buying the EE, absolutely.

I've been very happy with GOG (dropped about $55 with them) and I just ordered the import EE from gogamer.

Does anyone know if I have to install the patch 1.4 BEFORE I install the rest of the files, OR is that 1.4 patch included in the Enhanced Edition Update?

1.Download the 1.4 patch
2.Download the language pack(s) - approx. 500 MB each
3.Place all downloaded files in a single directory.
4.Install the Patch (double-click on TWEE_upgrade.exe).
5.(Optional) Download bonus content & soundtrack.
